What’s in My Summer 2019 Travel Capsule Wardrobe

We’re heading on a little local getaway in a couple of days! It’s already feeling like summer here, but I haven’t fully transitioned to my summer capsule wardrobe yet. I feel like our upcoming trip is the perfect opportunity to test out a few items for summer and get a feel of what I want to include. We’ll be gone for a total of 10 days, so I put together a little summer travel capsule wardrobe for the trip. Here’s a full list of what I’m packing, where I got it, and some outfit ideas!

I’ve chosen 20 items for the 10 days, including shoes and accessories. It might seem like a lot, but we’ll be staying in two separate places – the first will be really hot, and the second will be a bit more mild – so I need to work with two slightly different temperatures. We also have an event to go to for Jason’s work so I needed to bring something appropriate for that. And I just personally prefer to have some variety to choose from when I travel, so all in all that got me to 20 items. It at least all fits in one weekender bag, which is my limit for travel.
