Packing Your Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Last week, I showed you an easy mix-and-match capsule wardrobe for your summer trips. Today I want to show you mine in practice and how everything goes together when you're going on a short getaway. These are pieces I'm considering taking with me to Sacramento for 4 days, including one where I will be going to a family reunion and one where I'm going with our niece to a fairytale theme park.

I want to show you travel capsule wardrobe in practice and how everything goes together when you're going on a short getaway.

I'm not taking too many pieces, because I won't be there that long, and also I think it's more convenient to mix and match some items instead of taking full outfits for each day. I'll be traveling with two pair of shoes, a pair of closed-toe ones and a pair of sandals. I'll also be wearing an outfit on the plane that can match with other pieces in my bag.

It's gonna be hot, so I'm bringing a mix of breathable pieces and athletic wear. I want to be comfortable and wear clothes that are roomy, but still look good. These olive joggers from Prana are some of my favorite pants for summer. They're great for sitting on the plane, running through the airport, and even for long road trips. 

Having a cute pair of sandals with you that match everything and can be worn for long walking days is pretty important to me. These ones from Dr. Scholls can also be worn with a more dressy outfit if I want, too. 

I love this tennis tank and I have it in two different colors. It has a built-in sports bra, so it's extra great for summer. It came from Lucy and I pretty much bought everything in my size when they were going out of business, and have been finding pieces here and there on Poshmark. When you find things that are functional and pretty, you stick with the brand as much as you can. REI carries 5 of Lucy's best-sellers, but I don't think they designate them as Lucy items, since they were absorbed by REI.

I got this adorable skirt from Pact after looking at it for months. It's stretchy, but can look dressy or casual, depending on what you pair with it.

If I want to go out to a more upscale restaurant, adding these Skechers Cleo ballet flats are a perfect way to make this comfy outfit an appropriate evening outfit.

I'm sure you've seen me wear this dress before. It's from Prana and they discontinued it in this form. It looks like two pieces, but it's all attached and it has the BEST pockets. I have it in black and I also have it in rust. 

The back is open, because the tank part splits up the back. It's not that noticeable, but it's also great when it's hot outside, because you don't get that gross sweaty back with your clothes sticking to you. If you want a little extra coverage, throwing a tee over any tank dress is always fun.

You know I always have a cardigan or wrap with me, but sometimes I bring an athletic jacket, because it makes more sense with what I'm taking. This is another piece I thrifted from Poshmark. It's really lightweight, but it can add a nice level of warmth if layered right, but it's also perfect for those early summer mornings where it's still a bit chilly or you go into the air conditioning. This was one of the outer pieces I took with me to Vegas and it kept me warm when it decided to be really windy and rainy on two days.

I'll have more videos and packing posts the closer I get to my trips this summer and I may be doing longer videos, if those are something people want to see. Of course, you can always see more things like this if you follow me on Instagram. Make sure to like/save/interact with my posts there if you enjoy certain content. 

Where will you be traveling soon that you still need help packing for?
