Sorry if I’ve been a little MIA/sporadic recently. My work project of 10 months is going live on Tuesday. So I’ve been working every spare second to try my best to make the project successful. Might be a little bumpy post-wise through next week – but I’ll try my best! In the meantime – here’s the next re-done one suitcase – adding a checklist!!
One Suitcase Beach Vacation Checklist:
If you’d like to visit the original posts with me wearing the outfits:
- Basics – First I pick some basics pieces to lay the foundation for the trip. I try to pick my favorite go-to clothes. Clothes I know I wear over and over. The ones that go with almost everything. For me, this usually involves laying out my favorite jeans, basic shorts and a pair of super comfy wedges.
For the basics in this capsule wardrobe I have chosen whites & navys/blues as the base colors. I packed my favorite jeans, white & black shorts, white button down shirt, chambray button down shirt, a navy & a white cardigan and a white strapless dress.
For this capsule wardrobe I chose a pink t-shirt, a striped tank, a teal tank, an ikat tank, an ikat coverup, a teal maxi dress, an ikat skirt and a green & yellow dress.
Accessories & Shoes – Finally, I add some accessories to complete the outfits. Jewelry, belts and scarves take up very little room and can dramatically alter how an outfit looks. Unfortunately, shoes is the area I still struggle with. I always want to bring just one more pair. But I’ve learned to limit myself to only either blacks or browns (depending on my clothes) and then nude/beige shoes go with everything.
For this capsule wardrobe I chose three necklaces, one gold watch, white fedora hat, brown belt and a teal clear beach bag.
Proof of concept – All my clothes, jewelry & shoes fit in my one beach bag! (I’d actually use a carry-on suitcase and typically I wear my bulkiest pair of shoes & jeans on the plane so this bag would have more room – but just for show I put everything into the one bag.)
