Capsule Wardrobe for Weekend Travel

Weekend Getaway Packing for the minimalist

After last weekend’s rush pack job and taking WAY too many clothes with me, I decided to focus on the ultimate packing list for a weekend getaway… in a minimalist fashion.

Wouldn’t it be nice to only take ONE bag with you for a weekend? Consider the idea of a capsule wardrobe (which I have been obsessing over lately – less IS more!), and convert that into a weekend wardrobe. All pieces are mix and match. Twelve items in total; all of which can fit into a small carry on.

1. Striped tank – T by Alexander Wang

2. Panama hat – Anine Bing

3. Denim shorts – J.Crew

4. Leather tote – Baggu

5. Wishbone necklace – Jennifer Zeuner

6. Converse chuck taylors – Converse

7. Classic grey tee – Steven Alan

8. Super Mona sunglasses – Club Monaco

9. White cropped denim – Citizens of Humanity

10. Oversized shawl wrap – Ally Fashion

11. Shiny sandals – Zara

12. Black maxi dress – Madewell

      Well the fact that you commented in July, and it has taken me this long to respond, is probably why it hasn’t been updated.. lol. Thanks Dar! I’ll make a note to change that ASAP! xo
