Summer Capsule Wardrobe

If you see me in the next couple of days, I will probably be wearing scrubby clothes because everything else is packed and ready for Montana. Packing has been easier this time around since I know what to expect. I kept my capsule comfortable and neutral with lots of layers because the days can be warm (and sometimes even a little hot), but the nights are cool. Also the baseball season goes into September, so our last couple of weeks could get even get a little cold.

Other than what is pictured here, I packed a few lounge-around clothes, some PJs, workout clothes, and my camping gear. For shoes, I have two pairs of sandals and my leopard print Vans for everyday, Chacos for the river, flip flops for the pool, Under Armour sneakers for working out, and some old Patagonia shoes for hiking.

For those who want to know more details, I listed out each piece below. I bought a few new things for summer, including the softest bestest favoritest denim jacket ever from Stitchfix. I seriously want to sleep in this thing. I also replaced my white shorts and found two simple black tops. My goal was to keep everything simple and easily washable. Everything else was already in my closet from my Spring Capsule (and recent update).
