Packing for 7 Months Abroad: Spring Wardrobe Capsule

Last Monday, I shared my winter capsule and today I am sharing my spring clothing capsule! I'll be completely honest, I have no intention in sticking to a super strict capsule wardrobe plan where I only wear items in my winter capsule until the end of March and then switch to this capsule in the spring. I fully intend on mixing these as needed. I created these capsules to help me pack less, which they did. Because I plan on mixing, my spring capsule is a bit less developed/cohesive (I really love the winter capsule as a whole) and a bit smaller. 

I think these capsules will integrate nicely and give me lots of clothing variety so I'm prepared for any weather conditions I might encounter. While I admire the minimal Parisian capsule aesthetic, that just isn't me. But I think what I have packed is a nice blend of function and variety. 

I still can't believe I have packed for 7 months! I was surprised at just how full my suitcases are with just these two clothing capsules, but then I realized it was the pjs, underwear, workout clothes, socks, tights, shoes, purses, and lounge wear for 7 months that really takes up space (not to mention the winter coats, boots, scarves, and sweaters!).

I really appreciate everyone's feedback throughout this packing process! And I have received a bunch of emails from students who are reading along as they attempt to pack for a semester abroad. I hope this helps!

Bon Voyage!

  1. Are you not posting links to all of the items like in your Winter Capsule post? I would love to know where the striped blazer (row 3, item 1) is from! Regardless, I love the clothes and I hope you have so much fun abroad! 7 months is a long time!

    1. Hi Lauren, I started to, but then I realized most of these items are older and no longer available. That striped blazer is Juicy Couture and is three years old, sorry! If I have time today I will link what I can. And thank you!

  2. Really looking forward to see how you style all these pieces, so many great ways to mix and match prints!
