Traveling around southern California this fall and the southeast U.S. this winter has really made me hone what I carry. While I was always a huge fan of the capsule wardrobe concept on the boat, I had a locker full of clothes, a drawer full of little things, and a whole shelf with books and jewelry. This many not sound like a lot, but trust me, when it came time to load it all into a single suitcase that met the weight restrictions for a cross-country flight, it was too much.
Inspired by an image (right) I pinned four different times to different boards on Pinterest, I wanted to put together a wardrobe that was olive, cream, leather, gold leaf, floaty, and perfect for fall and winter while still allowing for desert travel. Most of these pieces were things I already owned, though I did acquire a few new pieces in the process.
So yes, the entire wardrobe fits into the leather suitcase. (Just my stuff, mind. Skye has her own suitcase.) Obviously, I packed a few more cream-colored tops, enough that I could go about a week between washing clothes.
