Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Tomorrow I am hopping on a plane to Colorado! I am so excited to visit Colorado for the first time, even if it is only for four days and three nights. On one of my flights I would have to buy a carry on bag if I wanted to bring one, so I decided to challenge myself by only packing a backpack. Here is what I came up for a vacation of hiking and seeing the city.


The first day, I am taking a mid-day flight and then driving from Denver to Boulder.


The outfit I picked out is perfect for air travel because it is super comfortable and includes some of the bulkiest items. One of the most well-known packing tricks is to wear your bulkiest items onto the plane so that it saves room in your luggage. Also, planes tend to get cold so despite the weather in Colorado being mid 90’s, I figured it would be a good idea to bring a light jacket. Finally, the t-shirt that I am traveling is also going to act as pajamas for the rest of the trip.

Day two is going to be the main adventure day. We are going to be hiking and doing outdoorsy things.


This outfit essentially repeats all the items from the previous day, except I have swapped out the t-shirt for an athletic tank. Not, too much to say about this simple hiking outfit.

Day three is going to be an exciting day exploring the city of Denver.


I know for a fact that I am going to be sweating profusely, so I went for a lightweight tank dress and some really comfortable sandals. It would have been easy for me to pack another casual outfit where sneakers would be appropriate, but I decided that there may be opportunities to go out to dinner and sometimes it is nice to get dressed up on vacation. Even if it is just a *little* bit dressed up. Also, I figured that this dress could be worn after I went hiking as something clean to change into for the evening.

For day four there aren’t really any plans made, but we have a late night flight out of Denver and back home.


I decided on wearing another casual outfit, because I will be exploring the city and I would need to hop on a plane. There’s not much to say about this outfit except for the fact that I can mix and match the denim shorts and any of my other pieces to make another casual outfit, in case there needs to be an outfit change mid-day.

That wraps up my travel capsule wardrobe. It includes three tops, two shorts, one dress, one jacket, and two shorts. I am hoping to take pictures of my outfits throughout the trip and compiling them into one blog post, documenting all the different ways I wore this clothing!

Thanks for checking out this post. I am hooked on capsule wardrobes right now so if you have any videos or blog posts about capsule wardrobes please leave them in the comments and I will check them out!
