Being that Minneapolis is only four hours away, I decided to head out there for the weekend!
The way I pack so lightly deals a lot with preplanning outfits & packing the most versatile options. 
Everything fit into my travel Longchamp.

Minimalist Shops: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Minimalist Shops: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Autumn is not right around the corner. As much as I love layers, I can't bring myself to add items to a capsule I have yet to transition into. But I did come across two items that will work for both seasons. 
To be honest, I went through the bulk of the sale looking for other gems, but nothing really jumped at me. Once you start to put yourself into the mindset of only purchasing items you love, shopping becomes a lot more tedious. 

I am always on the hunt for a good pair of leopard shoes. 



Damsel in Dior mentioned these jeans on her instagram & I fell in love! I did need a little moral support from my friends to pull the trigger (since they still pretty expensive after the sale). I know I tend to stay away from jeans, but I'm really hoping these break me out of my shell.

This trip came right on time with my capsule updates! If you follow me on instagram (MarinaBotros), you would have seen that I have been inspired by 1950's style for this summer. You'll be seeing a lot of Audrey Hepburn in the summer kind of looks. Stay tuned for an upcoming outfit diary!
Everything that I packed is linked below (items in italics are new additions to my capsule):

When purchasing anything new to add to my capsule, I have to visualize at least three outfits where it would work for me to commit to it. New to my spring/summer wardrobe is this lovely printed
