My summer 2022 capsule wardrobe

Okay, it’s not an official capsule wardrobe, but I DID bring nearly all these pieces with me on a two-week East Coast trip, all of which fit into my favorite carry-on. So that’s essentially a capsule—and to me, that’s a good-enough definition, since I CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP wearing these.

    Sigh. I have been trying to find a wire free version of a bra too. Also one that is breathable. I don’t want polyester lace and other things when I am dying of heat. With all the wireless options I found, the problem for me is that there is the natural sag. It doesn’t give a good shape like wired(non-padded) versions do. Plus things are still bouncy if I walk too fast or jog. If I do find one that is supportive, it’s because it presses everything down like spanx does and I cannot breathe. Ugh. Why is this so hard?
