Happy day, reader dear!
I hope your day is wonderful! Or at least running smoothly? I’m on staycation right now and DVWP (God-willing, Weather Permitting), enjoying our Capri themed time to relax and regroup. I had three trips cancel since the beginning of Covid, and since they were gone, I forgot to take time off to rest and recharge. So that’s the plan for this week. If you missed the post about our virtual vaycay, you can find out more about it right here!
Because I have a very vivid imagination (AND love to pack), I decided to “pack” for our trip. Not in a suitcase, but I am pulling the things I want to wear for our staycay, and wearing just those for our “trip.” I’ll leave everything else in the closet and keep the door closed. Why? Less decisions to make. To get into the feeling. To create a space for make-believe. It’s like the dress-up corner with the costumes in Kindergarten. magic happens there! So, how do I do that? Watch and see!
Thanks for watching. Yes, I am a little unbalanced, but in a completely good way! If you missed it in the ramble, this was a 4/3/2/1 pack, which breaks out to 4 Tops, 3 Bottoms, 2 Toppers, 1 Dress. (Feel free to swap the 2 and the 1 if that feels better to you!) Carefully chosen, those 10 pieces should give you at least 39 Outfits. Even more if you get creative with the layers… If you’d like to understand how that math works, this Summer Wardrobe Capsule Math post is for you. (Because someone else out there has to be a logistics geek like I am. Right?)
Note: If ARE taking a trip and need more travel capsule packing ideas, here’s a link to my Travel Category!
So how about you? Can you imagine 10 Pieces for a week or two of travel? Yes, laundry is permitted! How do you like to pack? By the numbers? Coordinates? Or outfits? Packing the kitchen sink? Or minimal? Do share! I love to hear from you and there’s plenty of room in the comments… (I will reply, but it won’t be until I come back from staycation!) XOXO
Con stile e amore,
