I love to travel. One of the biggest hassles, though, is what to pack. We’ve taken the mystery out of it with this packing light mix and match capsule wardrobe.
I’m that person that brings two fancy dresses, 18 tops and 22 bottoms for a 4 day trip. How am I going to know what I need to wear?!?! What if we go somewhere fancy? Do I need a swimsuit? Yes? Then I better bring 3!
Seriously, it’s a problem, and I have issues. This capsule wardrobe, made up of pieces you can find at Target, is going to get you through your trip. I promise you. All you still need to add is maybe a swimsuit, and if you might go somewhere really upscale, a nice pair of bottoms and/or a dress. Links may be affiliate links.
