My Two-Month Vintage Wardrobe

Just this week, I've hopped to the other side of the country to attend a two-month training for my job in the military. I'm super excited to learn new things and be in a different part of the U.S. for a bit. 

However, I've really had to think through my packing.

Of course, I'll mostly be wearing a military uniform during the day, but I still need to bring enough clothing to last me for nights and weekends for two months. This clothing also needs to be appropriate for both fall and winter, and--obviously--I'd like to also look great.

I've created a video describing my process of curating a vintage capsule wardrobe:

It goes over my three considerations:
- Versatility
- Function 
- Weather

As well as my two other logistics considerations, suitcase size and laundry frequency.

Have you ever tried a "capsule wardrobe" for a period of time?  How did it go?  How do you limit pieces for travel, space, or budget constraints? What are some of your favorite vintage tricks for creatively "making do" with fewer garments?


  1. I travel with my vintage often . . I always like to start with a suit (it's my foundation piece). I like my suits because I can wear them with the jacket or without. . .With my suit I pack two blouses, a sweater, and then a spare skirt that can be worn with the suit jacket. If I have the space maybe an extra coordinating jacket. . .I try to bring a dress or two as well that can be worn with the jackets too. . . The hardest thing is shoes and hats . . .How I end up traveling with a minimum of 3 or 4 pairs escapes me every time! I try to pack and travel light bit it seldom happens but I have gotten much better.

    Happy and safe travels!

    1. Oh my gosh, yes! Shoes just seem to multiply!

      I also packed a suit. They're just the BEST for versatility.
