Have I mentioned how much I love capsule wardrobes? I think I have one perpetually in development in my sewing room. I love creating versatile garments that can be endlessly mixed and matched across seasons. It just makes good sense to me.
It also takes the thinking out of packing.
We love to travel and are often going from the plane directly to an outdoor adventure. It helps to dress accordingly!
Here are 10 garments – all “me made” with the exception of a pair of jeans – that took me from travel to trail to dinner and back again during a recent trip out west.
As I mentioned, I made most of these pieces, but here’s my formula:
- Bottoms: Athletic leggings, jeans, joggers
- Tops: Long sleeve, short sleeve, tank
- Layering: Hoodie, sweater, jacket
- Extras: 3 pairs of shoes, ball cap, headwrap
Everything I took fit into one carry-on and a daypack – an easy way to travel!
