Cottage vacations are a perfect way to explore your own country without going too far afield. Three nights in a beautiful Prince Edward County farmhouse. Beaches. Family. Early bedtimes. Bonfires. Sunsets. Sunscreen. Sand. Yes, to easy getaways close to home.
Vacation Packing 101, or 102 if you consider this the upgrade from my trip this weekend (Cottage Trip)
Hot on the heels of a gorgeous cottage getaway (stay tuned for that), I am packing it up for a vacay to the UK. I’m going with my mum, while my lovely wife stays on the homefront. I managed to pack for 4 days of beach and countryside in a carryon (including all my pregnancy vitamins and meds), so this time, the challenge will be taking all those extras, for more than twice the time away, in a medium sized case and soft-sided carryon. I’m a classic over-packer.
The UK is the perfect not-too-hot, not-too-crowded, great healthcare in case of emergency destination for a pregnant gal on the go. So, as I lay out my look book for the days away, what is the inspiration?

Dresses will the the staple of this trip, with some basic black pants (one flowy, one pair of skinny jeans) and two skirts thrown into the mix.
Some hats, a classic bag and comfortable shoes are also making the cut. Simple gold necklaces, a few good bracelets and my wedding ring will be the basics that come along.
Can’t wait to get wheels up… I’ll be posting as I go. Cheerio and see you on the other side!
