Cape Cod Packing List

This past weekend I traveled to Cape Cod with my fiancé and friends. We stayed Thursday night through Sunday morning for a total of two full days and two nights on the Cape. This was my first time visiting and it was absolutely beautiful.

I’ve been traveling a lot this summer while wearing a summer capsule wardrobe. Packing for trips has been so much easier with less to choose from. However, the beach was a bit trickier since my capsule doesn’t really include much beach wear. Today i’m sharing some photos from my trip as well as what I packed and wore for the long weekend with a capsule wardrobe.

Cape Cod Packing List


I’m used to southern beaches. Where it gets so hot sitting in the sand that you have to go in the water to stay cool. Cape Cod was the opposite of this experience. It was actually pretty chilly on the beach (which is so much better in my opinion). I’m glad I brought a loose fitting long sleeve linen shirt. It was perfect to pull on and off whenever I wanted warmth or relief from the sun.


Friday during the day was cloudy so we decided to drive up to Provincetown and walk around. A comfortable pair of sandals, shorts, and simple tank top did the trick for a day in town.


Friday night I ended up wearing what I wore during the day. Saturday was very casual as well with a pair of shorts, t-shirt, and simple shoes. I added a denim jacket every night since the evenings do cool down quite a bit. I definitely recommend bringing a jacket and one pair of pants (I forgot pants) for cooler evenings.


That does it for my Cape Cod packing list! What are your packing list must-haves for a weekend at the beach?
