TGIF! Cottage Country is calling and my favorite weekend vacation spot is in Ontario, Canada, surrounded by beautiful lakes, cottages, and nature. I pack only the essentials for easy, laid back style that can take me from the boat to bar-be-que, cottage to village. I take a colorful swimsuit, shorts and t-shirt, cashmere sweater and jeans for chilly evenings, and accessorize with sporty sandals, hat, sunglasses, and camera-ready iPhone cover and carrying case like these from Gizmon, for all the moments I will want to remember come Monday morning when I am back in the city. I tuck them all away in this faux python knapsack in bright turquoise. All the pieces work together so that I can mix and match, and don’t over-pack. Citrus pops of color, mixed with blues, and accented with silver touches, give classic pieces a style update. It’s the weekend and I just want to swim, eat the most amazing ice cream from the local dairy, relax on the dock, read, and unwind. It’s time to hit the road – be there in two hours. Bliss!
