If we’re feeling a tad stir-crazy and yearning for a sun-soaked vacay, we know we can always mosey on over to One Trip Pass to ogle Levi’s concept designer (and R29 fave) Jay Carroll’s road-trip-centric musings. His colorful, inspired posts chronicling creatives in different fields are an ultra-introspective, digital journey — and you don't even have to leave home.
