Northern Reflections is a store I have shopped at since I was in my twenties when I’ve been looking for stylish casual clothing! This Canadian-owned company has been around for decades because it understands what many Canadian women are looking for when it comes to shopping for timeless, high-quality women’s clothing! With over 130 stores across Canada, Northern Reflections is a company many Canadian women know and love. Another reason to shop at Northern Reflections is they carry sizes XS to XXXL in petite and regular! Of course the name, Northern Reflections, and the graphics on their clothing always remind me of going to the cottage! Even though I love the excitement of Toronto including the diverse restaurants and vibrant arts and culture scene, I relish the days I spend at the cottage in the summer. I am definitely part city, part country girl! [Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by Northern Reflections.]

My favourite activities that I enjoy at the cottage include:

  1. Having a coffee on the dock in the morning and listening to the loons
  2. Taking the canoe out and paddling on the calm water
  3. Swimming for hours in the lake – yes, I’m a mermaid!
  4. Going for a walk along a country road to get some exercise and pick wildflowers for a bouquet
  5. Kayaking on the lake and seeing how far I can go before my arms hurt lol
  6. Going into town to shop in quaint stores
  7. Reading a gripping novel under the shade of a pine tree
  8. Going out for dinner at a local patio
  9. Sitting by the lake at night and watching the sun set
  10. Watching my brother start a bonfire in the firepit while my family and I try to identify stars

That’s why I love shopping at Northern Reflections: their clothing collections like the Oh Canada Collection are the perfect choice for those leisurely days by the lake, country walks or visits into town.



To get ready for my cottage vacation this year, I chose several pieces from the Northern Reflections Oh Canada Collection. Get 10% off regular and sale-priced clothing when you shop Northern Reflections online using my promocode: BLOOMLORI10

Canada Day Everyday Fit Tee in Red and Iconic Logo French Terry Shorts in White

The Canada Day Everyday Fit Tee and Iconic Logo French Terry Shorts will be one of my go-to outfits for relaxing on the dock, stand up paddleboarding or just playing board games at the cottage. This red-and-white outfit makes me feel proud to be Canadian!

The Canada Day Everyday Fit Tee is 100% cotton and falls at the hip. I love the campervan logo on the front! The Iconic Logo French Terry Shorts are super comfortable due to their drawstring waistband. Side slant pockets are great for storing my keys or tissues! These shorts are made from 94% cotton and 6% Spandex so there’s a bit of stretch for when you’re being active. They also come in Black and Simply Red.

Basic Perfect Hoodie in Northern White

The Basic Perfect Hoodie in Northern White is all I will need to put on over my tee to keep my arms protected from bugs while I’m walking near bushes. The hoodie will also be great to wear on cooler evenings by the bonfire. I love how cozy this slim-fit hoodie is due to the super soft French terry knit. The Basic Perfect Hoodie is made from 95% cotton and 5% Spandex and also comes in Navy Blue and Black.

Canada Day Semi Fit Tee in White

The Canada Day Semi Fit Tee in White is another essential tee for the cottage. I’m going to wear it with my Everyday Active Capris! This 100% cotton tee is perfect to put on over your bathing suit when you’ve had too much sun since it has a slightly relaxed fit. The soft jersey knit is super comfortable. I love the image of the loon on the tee since loons remind me of all of my cottage vacations!

Everyday Active Capris in Light Grey Heather

I definitely need a pair of capris for those cooler days at the cottage or for going for country walks and the Everyday Active Capris in Light Grey are the perfect choice. The pull-on style also makes them easy to throw on over your bathing suit! Made from 90% cotton and 10% Spandex, the Everyday Active Capris are so comfortable that I don’t want to take them off! The capris also come in Navy Blue and Black.

Iconic Canada Day Sweatshirt in Light Grey Heather

After I’ve been swimming in the lake for hours, I sometimes get a chill so putting on a warm sweatshirt is a must for me! A sweatshirt is also great for those rainy or below seasonal temperature days that we inevitably get at the cottage. That’s why I chose the Iconic Canada Day Sweatshirt in Light Grey Heather. This sweatshirt is not only comfortable, but it’s made from 75% cotton, 5% viscose, and 20% recycled polyester. The polyester is derived from recycled plastic bottles and the process uses less water, energy and natural resources than virgin fibre.

Sleeveless Tiered Maxi Dress in Black

Shorts, capris and tees are great for wearing around the cottage, but when it’s time to go into town to shop or have dinner, I like to dress up a bit. The Sleeveless Tiered Maxi Dress in Black is the perfect dress for these cottage country outings since this sleeveless dress will be cool to wear during hot temperatures yet it’s still dressy. Made from 100% polyester, this dress has side pockets and is designed to fall above the ankle. I’m going to top it with a colourful cardi during cool cottage evenings.



I’ve paired it with the Woven Belt with Faux Leather Trim in Oatmeal Tan to give it a flattering look at the waist.
