Summer Bags

Product photos: Wayfaring Bag at Wanderlust

Back in July, I promised a Wanderlust recap, and I'm happy to say I have some pictures of my Wayfaring Bag design in action that weekend. It was especially exciting to be using it while I attended this event because Wanderlust Festival  was the exact scenario I had in mind when I designed this bag. 

used mine the whole week I was in Whistler and, though I realize this may sound biased, I loved it. I was lugging around my yoga mat with my shoulder strap, so it was wonderful to be able to wear the bag around my waist to lighten the load. I loved the phone pocket - it's placement on the back panel of the bag meant I could feel the buzz and stay connected all weekend. It was the perfect size, and the interior pockets were perfect for stashing sunscreen, lip gloss, sunglasses and snacks. The best part? When I went through security at the Saturday night concert, the guard complimented my bag!

Here are some pics of my friend Jess rockin' the lilac bag.

Wear it around your waist when you don't want anything heavy weighing you down.

I am fortunate enough to be attending Wanderlust Festival in Whistler this weekend as a volunteer. For those of you who don't know about it, Wanderlust is a festival celebrating yoga, music, art and much more. These four day summits take place all over North America, with more locations being added every year.

I can't wait to practice yoga with international teachers, dance with friends to awesome music, and be in Whistler during the heat of summer. I plan on posting a Wanderlust recap when I return, so stay tuned. 

In the meantime, I thought I'd share this post I found from yogi/blogger/stylist Lexie of The Elle Tee. She did a post about her go-to Wanderlust outfit that features my festival bag design from this year. She has some really great things to say about it. You can see the whole post here.

This festival bag from lululemon athletica sure makes me feel festive. With the many ways to wear it; from cross body to fanny pack, it’ll be my go-to accessory during Wanderlust.

I'm honoured this bag can be a part of Lexie's Wanderlust journey. Hopefully I see even more of these bags in the village at Wanderlust Whistler. Check back again soon for the recap.

This week, my friend Brittney Kwasney of Bright Photography took some time out of her busy schedule to take some product shots of my latest bag design, the Summer Tote. This bag is perfect for taking you from the studio to the beach (or vice versa!) and everywhere between.

Brittney is an amazing photographer, and was a complete joy to work with.  I can't wait to share the rest of these photos with the world - I'm so happy with how they turned out! In the meantime, you can see drawings and more detailed information about this bag here > 

We also have an upcoming shoot planned for the Wayfaring Bag, so be sure to check back in again soon to see more pictures of these great summer bags in action.
