We’ve had temperatures ranging from the high 90’s to the low 50’s this past week so I’m very glad I over packed. I learned my lesson when I under packed for our month long trip to Palm Springs in January. Since no suitcases were involved I brought way more than I expect to need but also needed a pair of shoes I did not bring…Murphy’s Law.
Several readers have asked me to share what my typical outfits look like while RVing, so this is what I wore last week.
Day 1- driving
I make sure to wear pants that have stretch and don’t dig or bind anywhere for our travel days. I’m sitting for hours and tight pants would be torture. Skirts are comfy too but can be awkward while climbing up and down from our SUV.
Day 2- driving
I always have a tote bag in the car filled with extra sunscreen, hand lotion, protein bars, extra sunglasses, bottled water, folding umbrella and a scarf. There’s always a hat or 2 within easy reach for those times when the sun is in my eyes or blazing on my neck from the side.
Day 3- driving
I don’t neglect to wear accessories while I’m traveling because…why would I? They’re the icing on the cake of most outfits and help me feel polished. I wear layers that I can peel on or off depending on whether I’m sitting in the sun or it’s cooled off in the car.
Day 4 – arrived
The sun was shining but it was not warm so I chose layers again.
Day 5- tailgating and graduation ceremony
Details of both outfits here.
Day 6 – sightseeing and dinner out
Hot sunny day so layers to add and subtract with the weather.
Day 7- in the rain
It got cool and rainy so I’m glad I packed some cashmere to keep the chill off.
Yesterday we drove to Osoyoos for a week. We’ve heard wonderful things about this area and are excited to explore it.
As happens with RV’s, (ours more than most), the refrigerator is not working and we have a small gas leak both at the outside tanks and somewhere inside. It’s always something with this trailer, just to keep things interesting.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
