Summer Road Trip Essentials

One of my biggest pet peeves is planning a trip last minute with friends. I always miss stuff and never have everything I need. So with the summer fast approaching, it's time to start preparing for those epic summer road trips. In my case I'll be driving down to North Carolina with friends in July to a white party. Hopefully, with this list you'll have what you need to survive the shenanigans and have a good time. Here's some of my picks to get you through a long trip:

  • ·         Sunscreen
  • ·         A great pair of Ray-bans
  • ·         A classic pair of Converse
  • ·         Bermuda Shorts
  • ·         Boat shoes
  • ·         Polo Orange
  • ·         Spotify (for the drive)
  • ·         A map of local rest stops
  • ·         Apple Maps (directions)
  • ·         iPad (to get work done)


What do you bring on a road trip? Where are you guys headed this Summer to get away?




Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
