There could really be nothing better than taking a mini vacay on a hot weekend and heading to the cottage. Spending mornings relaxing on the deck, days hanging on the boat and evenings going into the local town for dinner, are three of the ways you should plan to pack for a jam packed cottage weekend! But just because your weekend is jam packed, doesn't mean your suitcase has to be! Read below to see how to mix and match your suitcase packing only 10 things!

1. Hat- Joe Fresh
2. Sunglasses- Ray Ban Aviators
3. Necklace/Bracelet- Jenny Bird at Blossom Lounge
4. Graphic T-shirt- Sundry at Blossom Lounge

LOOK 1: ON THE BOAT
When planning on heading out for a day on the boat it is important to stay comfy and protected. Make sure to pack sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses to keep yourself safe from the sun! For your outfit stay chic and comfortable with a classic denim shorts and t-shirt combo. We love this nautical anchor top from Sundry, perfect for a boat day! Keep jewellery basic and summery, and make sure to wear flat shoes...the boat can be slippery!
LOOK 2: OUT TO DINNER
If the cottage you are staying at is within driving distance to the nearest town, we say go explore! You can always find the best little shops and restaurants in the tiniest of towns. Don't get too fussy with your outfit, a simple fitted t-shirt dress, flat shoes, and a great bag will do the trick! For jewellery we used the same Jenny bird necklace and bracelet from the boat, and just doubled up the necklace for a more formal style.
LOOK 3: RELAXING AT THE COTTAGE
Just because you are hanging out at the cottage all morning doesn't mean you should keep your button down flannel pj's on. a comfy look can also be stylish! These light grey sweats with cool dip dye tassels and graphic print tank are perfect for lounging on the deck and sipping lemonade. You can even accessories with the jewellery and cute, comfy shoes!
