5 Day Weekend in Socal Capsule

I’m back! I’m finally over my illness and back in the Bay Area. I had the most amazingly relaxing 5 day weekend down in Southern California. I went down for a wedding, but spent a few days, hoping to be a beach bum, which never happened due to cloudy weather!

I didn’t bring much clothes at all on this trip, but with 5 days.. you really don’t need much at all! This capsule would actually take me through 8 days. That’s 1 sweater, 2 pairs of pants, 4 tops, and 2 pairs of shoes. If you haven’t noticed, I keep things simple and neutral with pops of color. These pants are my all stars for all year round.

I bought my funnel neck zip sweater (similar sweater in the picture) at Old Navy 4 years ago! I’m still wearing it and it’s starting to break apart! I’m going to have to sew myself a replica or find a replacement soon. The glory of a capsule is that you are able to wear your items for YEARS. I wish that there was a better quality in the same style that would last even longer than ON quality… if only!

The white jeans were a purchase also from 4 years ago (what! I keep them white by washing WITHOUT fabric softener and with a few tablespoons of vinegar with the detergent instead). The coral pants were a purchase from a trip to Hong Kong last March.

The newest pick for my spring/summer capsule that I (embarrassingly) keep wearing days in a row is the striped woven top! It’s like linen/chambray and incredibly soft. It works with anything and everything, which is probably why I keep wearing it. (Don’t judge me.)

I have my rose gold bar necklace I bought from Etsy that I wear daily for jewelry, but threw in 2 pairs of shoes for variety. Silver glittered and striped. 5 Day Weekend in Socal Capsule
Replicating this capsule is easy, really. Stick with the neutrals. Pick one color and have a top and pants in that color. Add stripes or polka dots for pattern. Lace would be nice for texture if you want to mix it up too! See how easy it is to build a capsule when you have neutrals/basics?!
