Capsule Wardrobe for Traveling / Featuring Sloane Ranger


We do a lot of traveling, whether its to the coast for the weekend, a quick trip to Utah, or a long drive home to Indiana. I feel like we are constantly packing up to go somewhere. The worst part for me is the unpacking when the trip is over, so to make that easier on myself, I try to pack as smart as I can.

First, you definitely need a good weekender bag. I like the soft duffle bags because they can fit almost anywhere and they’re not super bulky. The one I’ve been using lately and loving is this one from Sloane Ranger.

My biggest packing tip is Planning out Your Outfits. Make sure to check the weather, and bring things accordingly. This definitely takes some time but can be really helpful in preventing overpacking.

Today I wanted to show you how you can pack only 20 clothing items (including shoes, jewelry and handbags) and get 20 different looks out of them. I’ve basically created a capsule wardrobe for traveling!

Here are my 20 items:

  • 2 Printed Dresses
  • 2 Booties, 1 Black & 1 Tan
  • 1 Tan Crossbody Bag
  • 1 Tan Cardigan
  • 1 Cream Leather Jacket
  • 1 Fringe Vest
  • 2 Scarves, 1 Solid & 1 Printed
  • 1 Black & White Striped Skirt
  • 1 Watch
  • 2 Necklaces
  • 2 Pairs of Denim
  • 3 Solid Tees, Grey, White & Green
  • 1 Nicer Light Colored Top

And here’s how I created 20 Looks out of these pieces, and got it all in my Sloane Ranger bag, with room to spare. Which look is your favorite?

    That is the cutest travel bag! I do a lot of traveling home to NY as well so packing can definitely get overwhelming at times. I love how you’ve created all of those looks out of 20 items total! #goals
