van life // the little things

Well. the weather's been absolutely GORGEOUS lately, and that's just got me dreaming about road trips all day long. I thought I'd share some details from inside my travelin' van today, as I've been working to keep her clean and, well, 'cause I think she's so darn awesome. A few wonderful trips are being planned for this coming fall/winter season and I couldn't be more excited! The next step is getting some work done on her (brakes, exhaust, tires, ect.), but I'm expecting to have her up and running in plenty of time to be road trip ready.

Check out my video on road trip tricks here and the correlating post here!
// Pretty shells from my visit to the Gulf of Mexico a while back. Also, TAPE DECK.
//I thrifted the comforter that's thrown over the back bench. It's king sized, so it is perfect for snuggling under on chilly nights. I also thrifted these awesome pillows (I especially love the longhorn skull one!).
// My van is a '91, so it has a tape deck. I have a converter that I can plug my phone into, but it's also kinda novel to have some tapes handy. I found these at a thrift store in Mississipi.
// Another thrifted blanket (yay!), a great hat, and a good book. 
// This is where small little odds and ends wind up. There's some tickets from the drive-in theater, Elvis matches from Memphis, and more shells. Also, when I bought the van I was confused as to what exactly these weird spaces were near the cup holders, but I'm pretty sure now that they're for tape cases. They're also great for holding my phone!
// Crates like this are perfect for storage. I have a couple in here, and I used them to organize blankets, towels, shoes, and hygiene odds and ends.
// Thrifted curtains I hung between the cab and the back seats. I keep a bouquet of dried eucalyptus on the dash. When the sun shines on it or the vent is blowing it makes the whole place smell pretty!
// Cup holder things. A shell from the beach, a key chain from Graceland, and spare change for tolls.
// The passenger is always in charge of the camera!
// Comfy shoes, always. Also, thrifted rugs help keep the floor of the van clean. They're easy to shake off outside, and they help make the space cozy!
