With summer half over and school right around the corner, you might be thinking of getting a couple road trips in while you can. Plus, road trips can be a super fun way to get some awesome documentary style photos for your summer scrap book! Odd little stops along the way can make for some interesting backdrops, and are perfect for the adventurous individual who craves something different and exciting in their photos. Places like Free People, Threadsence, and Forever 21, have us daydreaming of these spontaneous mini vacations in the best fashion.
What you wear is up to you, but if you’re needing some extra inspiration, be sure to follow us on Instagram @mdernteen, and also check back on the blog for What to Wear Wednesdays!
