August is the month of cottaging!
In Ontario, Canada, we have two long weekends during this final stretch of summer, which makes it the ideal time to getaway.
Just because you're driving up north, doesn't mean you get a free pass on overpacking. Traveling lighter always should be the goal!
Packing less means more room for stuff like food + drink (hello!), lighter weight in the car (which means better gas mileage), and the unintended benefit of looking like a super savvy traveler.
We've also compiled several classic cottaging outfits below.
The key to packing light for the cottage is to bring versatile pieces that can be worn a couple of times. All of this should be able to fit into a solid duffle bag. Our printable has suggestions on a couple of our favourite carry-all bags as well.
