When you’re traveling, it’s best to wear clothes that are both comfortable and stylish, because you never know where you’ll go or who you’ll meet on your journey.
I have road-tripped from West Texas to New York City twice, and during that time I needed outfits that I could fall asleep in, and go to lunch wherever we stopped that day.

The clothes I had flown in were also the clothes of my first few meals and sightseeing tours of the city. Note to self: good job on that one.

First up, the “tools”:
