Escape to the Mountains: Your Ultimate Road Trip Packing List

Summer wouldn’t be complete without a weekend road trip that leads us to the outdoors. This year, we’re packing our bags and heading straight to the mountains for a few blissful days full of nature’s finest. Whether you’re sleeping under the stars, reading lakeside, or exploring the trails, packing an equally robust and stylized lineup of items is a must. Lucky for you, we curated what just happens to be the most perfect packing list for your mountain getaway.

The Daytime Basics

When it comes to packing for a weekend surrounded by nature, we gravitate towards wardrobe necessities that are as versatile as they are comfortable. That’s where lightweight basics and multi-purpose classics come into play. We love our Tahoe Tee for its simplicity (and the fact that it takes a style cue from our favorite outdoor surroundings). Pair it with denim cut-offs or relaxed jeans and you’ll be ready for anything. Do yourself a favor and bring the O’Keeffe Shirt and our Linen Coveralls along for the long-awaited answer to elevated outdoor-wear.

The Fireside Staples

No matter what activities you get into by day, be prepared for when night hits and the temperature dips. We keep the Everyday Slim Sweater, Cotton Linen Boyfriend Sweater, and Cotton Cocoon in blush around for one (okay, three) reasons: they’re lightweight enough for day but warm enough for night, can stand up to a little wear and tear, and work with just about anything. Whether tucked into shorts or paired with our favorite Plein Jeans, these sweaters are a surefire way to make fireside chats and s’mores all the more enjoyable.

The Sole Essentials

The best part about a road trip? There’s no worrying about whether your luggage will fit into the overhead bin. And that means one thing: extra room for shoes. We believe in bringing a pair suited for anything on your trip’s itinerary, but if you had to choose just three, we’d go for the Suede Canyon Boot, Suede Moc Clog, and Strap Sandal. The trio works together in perfect harmony, bringing you a sole mate for brisk mornings, sun-soaked days, and walks around the campsite.

The Home-bound Heroes

Opting for a home away from home over a campsite? Tie your space together by outfitting your abode with the coziest accessories: our Tahoe Ceramic Candle (made with citronella to keep the bugs at bay) and striped pillows are just the thing to make the mountains feel like home. Consider this our warning: you may never want to come back.
