Featuring Susan Murray, 32, Condo Real Estate Director, Toronto, Canada

Where did you travel?

Fairmont Chateau Whistler in British Columbia. The main event was a rustic wedding in the Pemberton Valley

How long did you travel for?

1 week

How many items did you pack?

In total, over 20 items. For this trip, I needed a rehearsal dinner dress, a bridesmaid dress—each with shoes, and four casual outfits for leisure and travel days, and of course, my favourite cosmetics and beauty products.

Where you able to use items as double-duty?

I used The 1887 Clutch that comes with The Quartermaster for formal and casual events on my holiday because its classic and complements any outfit.

What is your must-have travel item?

My must-have is definitely my perpetually stylish Turkish towel. This versatile item can be used as a wrap to wear, blanket on the plane, a throw for sun time and of course a towel!

Why do you carry-on?

Despite the fact that I knew I would be flying a portion of my trip via seaplane – I always travel carry-on. I like to hit the ground running when I arrive so I plan my outfits very strategically while packing and I often pick up a few new items to add to my wardrobe – which means that shopping is part of my travel agenda.
