Capsule Wardrobe Packing Guide - 1 Week In Colorado In A Carry-On

If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram (my username is AudreyALaMode on both and I share restaurant reviews and tons of scenic snaps), then you know that I am in Colorado for the week enjoying mountain views and fresh air. To streamline my trip, I brought only 1 carry-on full of my favorite capsule items - with a few spring and fall items sprinkled in to suit the cooler temps. To help inspire you to pack light for your next trip, I have outlined the exact items I brought below. Also, be on the lookout for tons of pics and travel lookbook once I return!
