A Relaxed Summer Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Lately I’ve really been feeling like I could use a vacation – how about you? Of course, the Italian coast getaway of my dreams is pretty out of the question right now. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t pretend, right?

So, I decided to put together a little relaxed travel capsule wardrobe of what I would pack if I had a summer vacation coming up. It features a lot of linen, some handmade items, and a soft and earthy colour palette. I’ll be sharing links where I can to all of the items or similar options and showing you how I’d style them with outfit inspiration as well.

Let’s take a look at what I’d pack for a relaxing summer vacation!

  • I’m so ready for a warm tropical vacation too! We were supposed to do some hiking in Pukaskwa this year (I’m in Indiana so that obviously isn’t happening) and we talked about driving to Florida or somewhere like that instead but there are so many hurricanes and storms pummeling the coast that I think we’re going to find some new places to camp/hike instead. 2020 has been such a crazy year. I really hope that all of these crazy things will wake people up to the need for sustainable living and the need to not put yourself first.

  • Hi! I love your capsule posts, and I’m curious if you do a capsule for each season? Or if you joint fall/winter & spring/summer?
    Thanks!

    • Right now I do a capsule for each season so every three months just to switch things up and keep things fresh! Plus where I live there is actually quite a clear difference between each of the four seasons, we definitely get both extremes and everything in between. So a seasonal capsule works best for me!
