Spring Break Vacation Capsule: 20 outfits packed in a carry-on

Spring break is just a few weeks away and as much as I would love to say that we are headed someplace tropical to dip my toes in the pool we will instead be knee deep in mud at a Spartan Race. Although so many of you have mentioned needing some help on getting packed for a week long get-away that I’m rounding up all my staples for a warm weather spring break trip.

Since I am now on the kick of packing as thoughtfully (and light) as possible all these items will fit in a carry-on bag. Keep in mind I typically pack my toiletries, makeup and laptop in this bag.
