3 Day Capsule Review

Day 5 of the 30 Day Writer challenge, and my last outfit with the travel capsule that I had laid out here. It was hot and humid today, with a huge rainstorm in the afternoon. Luckily I wasn't outside! But this outfit was cool and comfortable, with the cotton tee and a flowy pair of shorts. Unfortunately, they get super wrinkly because they're made of rayon, but I couldn't care less with this heat.

I wanted to do a little review of how frequently I wore each piece of the capsule. I think overall, it was successful, as I was able to create a lot of different outfits with a different feel for each, despite the fact that all my tops were mainly white. I'm glad I packed a variety of colored bottoms - from the black shorts, to the khaki, to the blue jeans. And they ranged from dressy (black soft shorts) to somewhat dressy (khaki) to straight up casual (jeans).

Here's how many times I wore each item over the course of 4 days (including today).
Uniqlo White OCBD: 2x
Everlane White Tee: 2x
H&M Striped Tee: 2x
Old Navy Twill Shorts: 2x
Old Navy Soft Shorts: 2x
Eddie Bauer Cropped Jeans: 1x

I also went for a run twice, so my workout clothes were worn twice. I also brought along two pairs of shoes - a pair of sandals and some gym shoes. The sandals were quite versatile and I wore them with most outfits.

I think overall, it was a success. I was able to fit all my clothes + shoes + toiletries in one Longchamp Le Pliage. It was cooler on Friday, so I was able to wear the cropped jeans and the button down and stay pretty warm. But the rest of the weekend was hot and humid, and I changed clothes often. I did laundry once. I didn't photograph all my capsule outfits, but here are the ones I did.
