Eleven days is a very long time to live out of a suitcase (and to be away from your doggies). It was no challenge, though, to get eleven outfits from this capsule.
We started the trip by flying from San Francisco to Cincinnati (hence the layering in the first outfit). We spent the weekend in Cincinnati for Beefy’s cousin’s wedding. The outfits I wore for the rehearsal dinner and wedding were not a part of the capsule. We mailed those items (along with Beefy’s clothes) back and forth rather than devote suitcase space. Cincinnati’s October weather was surprisingly warm (80s). I could have worn any of the Cincinnati outfits in Orlando.
The final eight days of the capsule were spent traveling and in the Disney World parks. It was very hot and humid. My scarves, leather jacket, and denim vest, got little to no use. The rest of the capsule (including those “high heel” boots), did well.
The capsule palette was black, navy, brown, olive, orange, pink, white, and denim. The hats concealed some terrible humidity hair. (I’m also thankful my hair is long enough to braid or pull back when the weather is nasty.)
These are the capsule items:
Leather Jacket (BCBG Max Azria)
Kimono (Carole Little)
Denim Vest (Tinseltown)
Sweater (Joseph A)
Button-front shirt (Banana Republic)
Blouse (Daniel Rainn)
Tank (Grayson Threads)
Denim skirt (Billabong)
Twill skirt (American Eagle)
Shorts (High Sierra)
Western boots (Ariat)
Hats – 2 (Pangaea and Yellowstone Club)
Bag (A+ designed by Aldo with a strap from Lam Gallery)
Sunglasses (Marc Jacobs)
Scarves – 3 (Canvas Boutique, Claire’s, and DSW)
Necklace (made by a friend)
Earrings – 4 (World Market and Francesca’s)

Pros: The pattern mixing and colors were so much fun. I almost always got compliments when I wore the kimono or white blouse. Both pairs of shoes were comfortable for up to 9.8 miles of walking. The hats came in handy for bad hair days. I discovered that the kimono made a wonderful cover-up for the pool!
Cons: I could have skipped the leather jacket and heaviest scarf. Neither item took up much room, though. I wish I had brought a tee shirt. The trip was much warmer and more humid than I expected. On our last visit, I froze. This time, I was sweating. I can’t win!
