Summer is finally here, and you know what that means: ROAD TRIP!

Many of us are likely to embark upon a quick vaca in the car this summer, so we turned to an experienced traveler to share her 3 “Road Trip Must-Haves” with us today.

Every Tuesday, we bring you short videos featuring some of your favorite bloggers and personalities, asking them about their “must-haves” for different life events.

This week’s featured blogger is Katie Van Dyke of & GoDoYouLife.Com. Katie is excited to go on a month-long road trip with her husband and five kids, so she’s sharing her 3 road trip must-haves with us today:

In case you missed any of Katie’s tips in the video, here they are (with links to her must-haves in each category):

Katie’s 3 Road Trip Must-Haves

1. Yoga Pants

If you’re a mom, you know you’re going to be climbing all over the car grabbing something for someone throughout the trip. Plus, chances are you and your spouse don’t share the same internal thermostat, so it’s important to be covered up and comfortable.

Katie’s pick: Style & Co Tummy-Control Bootcut Pull-On Pants

2. A Big Tote

It’s usually up to mom to carry everything from cameras and chargers to snacks and supplies during a road trip, and to do that mama needs a big tote!

Katie’s pick: Vera Bradley Vera Tote

3. Comfy Shoes

Comfy shoes are a must, especially ones that are “easy on, easy off” for the frequent bathroom stops you know you’ll be making on the road.

Katie’s pick: Skechers Go Walk Sneakers

And if you’re in the market for a new pair of shoes, you’re in luck because The Great Shoe Sale is going on right now at You’ll save up to 40% off when you buy 3 or more pairs of shoes.

So if you’re heading out on the road this summer, we hope these insights from a seasoned traveler will help with your travels.
