Going South

Get out of here!!

Follow

Planning to 'get out of here', leave, go south or to a resort? If so, that's fantastic and aren't you the lucky one! Unless you live in Calgary or have experience with driving snow plows, these conditions for us here in the far west are a challenge and who wouldn't want to escape?  So shop and pack here before you depart because when you arrive there, you'll never be sure of what the options are, what you'll find or prices and exchange rates can be a hassle.  But you'll find Plum has plenty that will also suit you for your escape and when you return for spring.

Isn't this the absolute sweetest dress since the invention of cotton candy? If you had to pack one thing, this would be it, it's femininity is only surpassed by it's comfort. Comprised of a butter soft knit stretch fabric...going about your day with ease will be no problem, whatever your adventures.

Regardless of what you choose to wear beneath, coverups will be an essential of your wardrobe. From evening strolls to beach side, over a bathing suit, there's no doubt you'll occasionally need something. These are wonderful because they slide over an outfit which can still be seen.

Perhaps you're a t shirt and shorts type person. Plum carries a great variety of Bear Dance t shirts. And the Bermuda shorts are a great departure from short shorts.

Bear Dance skull with roses (ivory) $35

Point Zero rolled cuff Bermuda short stretch twill (Bayberry, beige, grey or white) $55

Two more wonderful dress options to choose from. The one on the left is an effortless tank style, with abundant colour options in it's print. The one on the right is a sweet, mini dot print with romantic slit skirt and top shirring. You'll want to go dancing!

Emery shirred top dress (black or red) $85

Wink Wink tank dress with curved hem (3 prints) $79

Another great, breezy, fresh style in this bohemian loose fitting top. Anything that packs lightly and is airy will be excellent options.

KW Embroidered poncho (coral or mint) $55

So if you're one of the fortunate's that head to a resort or south for the winter here are a few interesting facts about Snow Birds. The term was first used in 1923, referring to seasonal workers, according to one study, 63% of Snow Birds reported having 'better health' and in Texas they are referred to as 'Winter Texans' But really, it just means a VERY lucky person who gets to escape the winter elements! Enjoy your trip and get packing!

Admit it. All this cold weather has you dreaming of being someplace else, less 'below zero' perhaps? Well, maybe it's not all bad, after all, they're only single digit negative numbers. Or, maybe you don't have to 'dream', maybe you are planning to head to an exotic locale? Maybe you're just 'done' with winter? Plum has all that in mind. They have put together an amazing early spring collection. So, be it for a last minute get-a-way, a long ago planned escape or you efficiently plan your wardrobe, Plum has a superb ensemble with you in mind.

Let's have a look at some of the dreamy pieces available now to get you ready:

Image

One of the first things that springs to mind when thinking of warm climates is dresses. Effortless. Makes packing a breeze; add sandals or espadrilles and a hat, and you're set. The above Simone asymetrical hem dress, features a sweet print, with black border neckline and adjustable straps. Very easy jersey fabric makes it simple to pack and care for.

Simone flare dress (black/aqua and black/coral) $ 110

Image

This lovely gauzy top, reminds me of radiant sunshine. Pixalated rose print is loose fitting, adding plenty of colour to offset any bottom you choose. (as above) Jeans, shorts or skirt. Why wait for warm weather to wear this? No reason this can't compliment one of our bright winter days here.

Plum oversize blouse $ 69 (also in blue print)

This really has a certain sex appeal without showing much skin. The curves are courtesy of you alone. The dress (a comfortable length), merely compliments them.

Simone scoop neck t shirt dress (fushia/seafoam, orange/turquoise, turqoise/grey) $ 85

 

Image

 

Nothing really needs to be said about this....but I will. It's a tunic, a dress, a coverup, just lovely! And so translatable for pairing with so many things. If you're looking to pack light, this is a must. Features a below chest fixed gather and peak hole tie neckline as well as a slight slip for minimal coverage. Small gold buttons finish off the batwing sleeves. Truly Goddess wear!

Fate blue print dress $ 99

While this might seem like quite a simple piece, (which it is), it's also quite versatile. The colours this tank/tunic comes in conjur up images of ice cream. Which, also makes matching with other things, so uncomplicated. Therefore,if you prefer to add accessories, again, easy to add to this simple yet functional jersey. Surprisingly comprised of 96% bamboo.

Emma's Closet $ 39 (mint, black, peach, royal)

I honestly was presented with a rather difficult challenge with what to include here, with so many amazing warm weather options (skirts, more dresses, more breezy blouses etc.). Plum has you so prepared, you'd think they were coming along. In a way, they are. Take some photos and don't forget your sunscreen and sunnies!!

Going south this winter? Get ready to bare your skin for the warmer weather with some early spring arrivals--Plum’s new Going South collection is now in stores.

For your mid-winter escape, the styles make packing a breeze. Designed to mix and match, this new collection is tightly edited so that it's easy to put outfits together. Wear the blue printed tunic over the navy skinny cropped pants to tour seaside villages or artisan markets. Then, while poolside, throw the tunic over your bathing suit and wear it as a cover up. The designs can be dressed to suit whatever is on your itinerary.

Even without booking a tropical vacation, these early spring arrivals are full of pieces that you can aspire to wear during the sunnier months. The striped tees and tanks are great transitional items that you can start to incorporate now. Later, a printed maxi dress will give you tons of wear right through to summer. Plus, if you swap your flip-flops to metallic sandals, and add some glitzy bangles, it can suit a variety of spring and summer events.

Get inspired for the coming spring with Plum’s new Going South collection.
