Minimalist Summer Vacation Capsule Wardrobe – Outfits & Beach Essentials


The Summer weather is here and several of us are going to the beach! If you use a capsule wardrobe, chances are you like to pack clothes for your vacation that coordinate and can mix and match. What clothes do you carry that will save space in your suitcase, but at the same time so you can have several outfits you can wear?

In appreciation of all the readers of the blog and capsule wardrobe eBooks customers, I created a Freebie for you! A Minimalist Summer Beach Vacation Capsule Wardrobe that you can use on your next vacation and when you go to the beach (or the pool)! This capsule includes several tops and bottoms, plus two mix and match swimsuits and 2 dresses that you can use both as everyday dresses and cover-ups!

Several of the tops and bottoms are also in the Simplified Style® The Dressy & Casual Collection: striped tee, solid tee, solid shorts and denim shorts. The Simplified Style® capsule includes all the core closet essentials you’ll need for building a capsule wardrobe that you can use year-round!  All the core closet essentials are neutral colors so you can easily wear them with the seasonal capsule wardrobe collections!  In Simplified Style® The Dressy & Casual Collection, there are chapters for each season of the year, each with its own wardrobe plan, over 450+ outfits for all seasons, dressy and casual outfit calendars (so you always know what to wear), plus more!

The Base Color for this capsule is Navy, but you can also have Black as your base color! To have a black base color, just swap the navy tee, navy striped dress and navy tank dress for ones with black. For the Beach Capsule, you can swap the navy 2-piece for a black 2-piece and swap the navy patterned 2-piece for a black patterned 2-piece.

Here are the tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes and accessories for the Everyday Outfits. Be sure to see the Beach Capsule and Beach Essentials below.

Don’t forget the Beach Essentials, like Body Sunscreen and Face Sunscreen, lip balm (my favorite!) to keep your lips from getting chapped and an Insulated Non-Spill Water Bottle (I love Yeti products!). Use a Quick-Drying Towel to dry off, a Weighted Outdoor Beach Blanket you can lay on the sand (and it won’t blow away), a Beach Lounger and a Beach Umbrella! If you need a cart to carry your beach equipment in, this Collapsible Wagon is perfect!

  2. Oh Leanne! I am so grateful for the consistency of your blog! My husband, daughter and I are doing a cross country road trip and through the use of your book(spring teacher wardrobe), the gifted mini capsule wardrobe and the information on the blog, I made a beautiful wardrobe for the whole family. We are coordinated, without looking matchy, every combination looks put together and we each have a total of 8 wearable items for a lot of different outfit combinations! Thank you for nurturing your talent and sharing it with the world!
