Capsule Wardrobe for Alaska

Capsule Wardrobe for Alaska

On our cruise, we’re going to have a small closet, much like we do at home, so I’ll be packing a capsule wardrobe for Alaska. I’m also doing this because of the kinds of items I’m bringing. Sweaters and coats and boots all take up far more room than bikinis, floral dresses, and short shorts. So, without further ado, here are the items that I’ll be packing in my capsule wardrobe for Alaska.

How I Maintain a Well-Balanced Life

Man, I've been writing a whole lot of travel posts (I guess I'm excited about Alaska, huh?!) but it's totally time for a food-related post. While I'm not posting one of my recipes (or a recipe fail, which you haven't had to witness yet, I am posting about...

Our Alaskan Itinerary

It’s officially June and Adam and I are headed to Alaska later this month! I’m getting super excited to share shots from all of our adventures (to include kayaking, hiking, and exploring different ports) and hope that some of you can follow along. We’re headed to quite a few places on our fourteen day cruise with Seabourn and it’s time to share our Alaskan itinerary.

Caille Blanc Villa

St. Lucia is a stunning island that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting twice. Even writing this post makes me want to book a flight back. Last June, at the same exact time as this, Adam and I headed there with our families. That trip was one of the most memorable I’ve ever been on because, on June 7th, we got married. The best thing about our return to Soufriere was the stunning residence we rented: Caille Blanc Villa.

Packing for an Alaskan Cruise

Each summer Adam and I plan at least one epic trip. Last year, we went to St. Lucia, where we got married, and then took a cruise around the Mediterranean with Seabourn. Both trips were amazing and I can't wait to head back to both destinations. However,...

Five of the Best Fashion Influencers

Fashion isn't just about the clothes that we purchase or the designers that we prefer. It isn't just about the outfits or the photos of those outfits that we share online. It's not about whether we have a small or a large closet - or a small or large...

Three Reasons to Wear ba&sh

When I rent items from Rent the Runway, I never know how the clothes will fit me. I’m pretty petite; I’m five foot one and wear a zero or double zero, depending on the brand or the type of item, and feel as though my legs are quite short. Some items that arrive are too big in the waist or too long – but whenever I order an item from ba&sh, it fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend their clothing (for those that are willing to splurge on their gorgeous designs) and here are three reasons to wear ba&sh.

Five Things to do when Visiting Epcot

Epcot is a favorite theme park of mine. Visit places without spending cash on flights, hotels, and more; taste food that's reminiscent of the local food; and see replicas of some of the famous sights. What's even more famous is the ever-popular drink...

Five Reasons to Choose Seabourn

Adam and I tend to book one long trip in the summertime. This year, we’re choosing to board an Alaskan cruise. The cruise line that we use (and will continue to use – prob. forever!) is Seabourn. Adam and I booked our previous Seabourn cruise last summer. This cruise went around the Mediterranean and it was sooo beautiful. Obviously, Adam and I loved our first Seabourn cruise, because we’re back at it – and prepped to board the Seabourn Sojourn in late June, which is why I’ll be telling you five reasons to choose Seabourn.

Overnight Oats

Oh man ladies and gents (but prob ladies!) I’ve just tried some overnight oats. And it all started with a Quaker experiment…ok, it wasn’t exactly an experiment. Long story short, I saw the Quaker Overnight Oats sitting on the shelf, waiting for me to see them (the oats were above my head so I never noticed them before – haha!). I took them home, along with a container of almond milk and prepped Adam with an if-we-like-these-I’m-going-to-make-a-recipe speech.

Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

I’ve been working through the kinks of this capsule wardrobe over the past few weeks and, even though it’s not quite perfect, I think I’ve figured some things out. I’m still liking this wardrobe and hope to dwindle it down to even less items. Now that I’ve been wearing items on a more “heavy” rotation, I’ve figured out some of the most basic, capsule wardrobe essentials.
