Capsule Wardrobe: Week 4 Outfits

I’m here with the final week of outfits from my summer capsule wardrobe! It’s been an experimental time of having packed away 75% of my closet and choosing to live with just 38 items (tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes) for 30 days.

While I love to recap our trips here on the blog, those posts tend to go into details about people we met or conversations had along the way, and I figured there might be some of you who just want a quick guide of places to check out. So I’m putting together some travel guides that compile lists of places I’ve checked out on my travels or the spots that were recommended to me by locals/friends that I may not have had time to check out.

First up in this series, is Nashville — a city that was long on my “to-visit” list based on all of the rave reviews from others.
