Packing light is certainly practical, but it’s not easy to create an efficient mix and match travel capsule wardrobe without sticking to neutrals.
My suitcase can end up like a rainbow when I pack all my favourite dresses. That’s ok if there’s just you to pack for, but when you’ve got a whole family to fit in you need to be a bit more selective.
Fortunately the lovely ladies at Birdsnest online store now do all the hard work for you. They do the mixing and the matching, so that you can buy an entire capsule wardrobe ready-made!
Birdsnest has long stood out in the world of online shopping for its super fast delivery and brilliant returns policy. But it’s the fabulous outfits they put together that I love. You can browse outfits by event or dress code, body shape, personality or lifestyle. So much incredible inspiration!
They’ve now gone beyond mere outfit creation for their brand new feature – the Birdsnest capsules.
A Birdsnest capsule is a collection of styles from a variety of brands that can be combined to create many different outfits. For instance –
Cruising Style – A travel capsule wardrobe for cruising
I’ve been doing a bit of playing around in the Birdsnest virtual racks myself and have put together a capsule wardrobe designed specifically for cruising.
Mix and match travel wardrobe
These beautiful pieces can be combined to cover all your cruising needs, from hanging out at the pool to a romantic dinner. Read my Voyager of the Seas review to see what sort of things we got up to on our cruise.
Lounge by the pool
Combine 3 & 4: Grab a book and relax in a sunlounge while the kids splash.
Explore the tropics
Combine 2 & 4: With a bit of sun coverage and comfortable shoes, this outfit will take you sightseeing around the South Pacific or Caribbean.
Discover the urban jungle
Combine 3, 5 & 6: If cool cafes and hip museums are on the agenda, then add boots and a spacious cross-body bag.
Appreciate a new vista
Combine 1 & 5: Whether you’re strolling the streets of Auckland or Copenhagen, wear your dress casually yet stylishly.
Enjoy a family dinner together
Combine 2 & 6: One of my favourite things about cruising is not having to cook. So enjoy the delectable dinners on board in a simple top and skirt. Take a scarf with you for after dinner strolls on deck.
Reconnect with a romantic night out
Item 1: Having a date night is so much more affordable than at home. Kids clubs are often free til late and specialty restaurants showcase a variety of cuisines.
If you shop your wardrobe to add a couple more tops and a bottom, you’d be set for a week long cruise. Too easy!
