Minimalist Toddler Capsule WARDROBE, Summer Travel, Wool Love ๐Ÿ’›1 Yr Old Girl’s Clothes


Aloha! This is Heidi at EC Peesy. Our family of four is traveling the world full time. In this video I’m going to show you my toddler
daughter’s minimalist capsule wardrobe for travel. My daughter’s capsule wardrobe is based around
her woolies. So these serve both as a water repellent diaper
cover to go over her cloth diapers or cloth training pants and they also function as her
pants, shorts, or bloomers under her dresses. At the beginning of our trip our daughter
was 13-months-old and we’ve been on the road for 5 months now, so she’s 18 months old. We started out with her wearing organic cotton
fitted diapers under her woolies. And now she’s mostly wearing just cloth training
pants or also we’ve been using some disposable pull ups and still wearing her woolies as
shorts over them. Wool is awesome because it is natural, breathable,
biodegradable, temperature regulating, and it barely ever needs to be washed. I’ve been washing her woolies about once every
two months on this trip. Which is super cool for travel! We have four pairs of Truly Charis woolies
that her wardrobe is built around. She has this navy blue soaker. She has a pair of Aurora Borealis capris. And these are the toddler fit, so they are
easier to pull up and down. These are like magic pants. I got them so they’ll last fitting on her
for two or three years. When she started wearing these capris at one
year old they went all the way down to her ankle. But now that she’s a toddler she’s mostly
growing in height rather than getting chubbier and so I think she’ll be able to wear these
until she is three-years-old. They will still fit. They will just turn more and more into capris
on her. She has one wool skirtie. So underneath is like an interlock wool diaper
cover. And then she has this Merino wool skirt attached
to it. Bright yellow wool bubble shorts. And since these are a lighter color she usually
just wears these for bedtime. And occasionally, if all the other ones are
dirty she will wear these out and about too. Other than her woolies, the rest of her clothes
are packed in these two eBags small packing cubes. This one has most of her actual outfits – her
dresses and her shirts. And this one is her pajamas and her socks. I had originally planned to film this as part
of our packing series before we left on our world adventure, but her wardrobe didn’t turn
out to be as “minimalist” as I had planned. At the last minute we got some nice hand-me-downs
and also some gifts. And I figured, why not just bring it all with
us and as she outgrows items or if they get stained and ruined, we can take them out of
her wardrobe and it will kind of shrink over time. But that way we won’t be needing to buy new
items for a while. I really wanted this wardrobe to last at least
one year, since we plan to be on the road that long. Okay, so her entire wardrobe is based around
these four: her capris, soaker, wool bubble shorts, and her skirtie. What I tried to do is have multiple dresses
or shirts that could all go with one pair. She has a couple Merino wool shirts. She has one special occasion outfit. This ruffle shirt from Truly Charis matches
just right with her skirtie. So if she ever needs to dress up a little
bit, she can wear that. She also has a long sleeve Merino wool shirt
from Truly Charis. I got one of these for each of my kids for
airplane travel days. And she could wear this with her skirtie since
the colors match. Or she normally wears it with her navy blue
soaker and then some long sock on the airplane so she doesn’t get too cold or hot. We’re usually going from hot weather to hot
weather but it gets cold on the airplane. On top I also have one shirt that we picked
up along the way. Our friends gave her a cute little outfit
when we were in Japan. Super cute little shirt. And there are shorts that go with it as well. So now we can see her main outfits kind of
moving in a gradient from the blues and the teals to the yellows. So for instance, to wear with these she could
wear her Winter Water Factory organic cotton dress. She could wear her RIX Island Wear dress. This is made with cotton and linen. She could wear this little shirt that was
a hand-me-down from her cousin. And this also pairs super nice with her capris. At the beginning of our trip this was always
what she was reaching for. Any time if this was clean, she would wear
this first. Then moving on to some items that pair more
with the capris. She could wear this one from RIX Island Wear. And our whole family has these little matching
outfits. She also has these dresses that were hand-me-downs
from a friend that work either with her capris or with the soaker under. And she’s also wearing another one of these
dresses. They are really lightweight material. I think it’s probably rayon. And since they are so thin, they are really
nice for packing. Those are kind of her blues and her greens. And then I have some yellow ones, thinking
they would go with her bubble shorts. They’re not a perfect match, but like I said,
she normally wears those just for bedtime. We have that one. Another little dress from Winter Water Factory. And she can wear this either with the yellow
shorts or the navy blue soaker underneath. One more of the RIX Island Wear. We went kind of crazy on their Black Friday
sale and got a bunch of matching outfits for our daughter and son from RIX Island Wear. This one is really cool. I got it from a lady who sells through a Facebook
group. If I find the link, I’ll include it in the
description box below. This is cotton, and it’s reversible, so that’s
a super cool idea for when you’re traveling because you can have two different looking outfits in one. So on this yellow side I normally pair it
with the navy blue soaker. I was hoping that these yellow shorts would match, but they are not really the same shade. And then you can flip this inside out. And now she’s got a pink option. It has kind of these teal leaves on it, and she could wear that with these capris. This is more than the bare necessities. She definitely could get away with fewer outfits but some things she’s still growing into, like this shirt doesn’t quite fit her yet. and then, some of the things she’s starting to grown out of. This is a smaller size, and she’s starting to grow out of this, as well. So as we narrow it down, donate or get rid of some of these items, her wardrobe will get smaller. I was really happy that while we were in Thailand we found a cute little backpack that matched with her different woolies. I saw this and I immediately just had to have it. I let her try it on, and she had to have it to. She didn’t want to take it off. And I really like how it coordinates with the different colors in her wardrobe. It’s a nice soft cotton. She likes to keep her different things – her keys and her wallet, in this adorable little backpack. It’s got a little charm her Dada got her in Japan. Now this small packing cube holds all her pajamas and socks. As you just saw, she threw it all over the place, so it’s a little disorganized now. She has one pair of long pajamas. These have a really cool zipper that passes through the legs. We’ve been in hot weather, so we actually haven’t needed these yet. The couple times we were in colder weather at night, I just had her wear her wool capris and her long sleeve wool shirt to bed. Now we can see she’s got her bedtime shirts, her socks in there. And she decided to put on a pair. She likes dressing up in her socks. This is a little tee shirt that could either be for bedtime or during the day. She could wear it with either her navy or yellow woolies. Then she has a couple organic cotton Komfi Baby tee shirts. This one says “Saving the Planet One Diaper at a Time”, since we mostly cloth diaper. This is her EC Peesy shirt. If you’d like to learn more about elimination communication and cloth diapering, please subscribe to our EC Peesy Youtube channel. She had a pair of these tank tops that we started out with. One’s in the wash right now. And then we bought this other set of bedtime tank tops while we were in Thailand. She really likes it because it has popsicles and ice cream cones on it. So that’s her favorite. If that’s clean, she always chooses that. And then some of her outfits had little bottoms to wear with them. But she doesn’t usually wear these since she’s usually wearing her woolies on bottom. These ones match with her rash guards, so she likes to wear them to the swimming pool. She’s got her stripy leg warmers. These really cute Wee Marcel knee high socks. Again, they can go with navy blue or yellow. Since I pack a lot of short things for her, I like to add long socks. They will keep her legs warm or keep the mosquitos away. Also, on the airplane we all like to wear our long knee high socks. And she’s got this other Christmasy pair. They’re nice warm ones. Dada! Did you do it? Did you do it? Oh no, where’s Haru? She’s got a little hat. In the swimming pools in Japan they expect you to wear a swim hat so we got those for our kids there. Got this cute little rash guard from Hawaii, that one of our friends gave us. And then I chose a swim diaper that could match with either of her rash guards. This one is from Blueberry. It can go with the pink. Or she also has a City Threads. I love City Threads because all of their clothing is made in the USA. I got this one a bit big on her. It says 18-24M. Just knowing she’ll grow. She’ll kind of out grow this one on the trip, and then she’s growing into this one.
