(outfits 16-20) one suitcase: beach vacation capsule wardrobe

Post 5/10 - The purpose of the "One Suitcase" feature is to try to show you how you can pare down your packing list when you travel without sacrificing the number or variety of outfits you have for the range of activities your trip may entail. I have learned through trial and error (and the pain of lugging wayyy too big a suitcase) that by packing a few favorite & versatile pieces of clothing I can mix and match the items into a surprising number of outfit options. You just have to do a little planning up front. Hopefully the posts this week will show you my method and help you find the potential of the clothes you already have in your closet!

In case you missed - it the previous posts in the series can be found here:

    1. I've been quietly following your blog for a few months now, and I just wanted to tell you that, when I get up in the morning and check my StyleBook app for ideas of what to wear, I can consistently count on you and your blog for great inspiration! If nothing else works, I can always turn to you for a simple yet elegantly stylish work outfit that is almost always totally doable with pieces I already have in my closet. So for that I thank you, and ask that you never stop blogging! :) You are awesome!
