Traveling Light: Must-Have Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

Traveling Light: Must-Have Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

August 20, 2019

There is something about August that gives us those “Sunday-night blues.” For some, it’s the wistful feeling that summertime is moving along too quickly. For others, the season may seem never-ending. 

Either way, you don’t have to face autumn just yet - there’s still time for one last summer getaway before the cool mornings and long nights of the colder seasons return.

Whether you prefer an all-inclusive resort experience or adventure-seeking through Bali, a travel capsule wardrobe will help you stay cool and comfortable. And as any devoted traveler would know, packing light is a must.
