Was I dreaming of a white Christmas? I guess dreaming is a bad idea (for me!) because suddenly, it appeared a plenty! Snow (or as I like to call it), silent, white road panic inducers. Nature's driving exam... if you will! Let's just say some are not as adept at driving in this as Santa. Although... maybe you dream of an aquamarine Christmas. You know, the kind that includes tropical drinks, cabana boys, crystal blue ocean views and drool inducing pool side siesta's? Maybe you're not so much dreaming, as planning. In which case, add Plum to your list of places to go first. Out of season attire is hard to find at this time of year, but not at Plum. They stock a regular, functional, in style group of fashions that you'll be thrilled to pack and excited to pull out and put on!

Polka dots are destined to be a big hit this spring, thus, killing two fashion birds with one stone. An airy, cheerful and light top that will go with nearly anything and will be totally in for spring!

Something about a long flowey skirt for a tripical vacation. Maybe it's the romantic look, ease of wear, or maybe it's simply that shaving ones legs becomes optional! Regardless, they're light and the above skirt has a funky, patchwork bohemian look, with simple to match colours.

More on the subject of the small dotted print...this dress is just the ticket for double digit tempartures...unstructured fit, lined and light with the sweet dots on a navy background. Great for cocktails at the beach side bar, with espadrille wedges and a tall stranger!
 
 
Image
The epitome of a travel dress for a warm climate. Sporting a lively, happy print makes you appear approachable and speaks for you. No translator needed. Just a delightfully easy to wear dress with every colour to match your shoes, flip flops or dangle earrings or the colourful hand crafted bracelet you'll likely purchase.

Plum's massively popular Simone dress in a design that's been proven to fit all types. Comes in two sweet, botanical prints, shirred back for extra comfort and fit and a complimentary at knee length.

There will always be a time where more layers are needed, not a heavy cardigan, just a mere bit of extra on your arms or to compliment the co-ordinates. Enter the Kimono. Here are a couple of great selections, one more muted tones, another with slightly more pronounced hues.
 

When you find a fragment of good from a bad situation, that's creative; When you dream something into reality, that's magic; when you turn a desire into a vacation that's motivation! But when you turn 65 and all your body parts are still functioning..THAT'S A MIRACLE!!

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.

Image

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.

Simone sleeveless dress with back shirring (blue or light blue) $129

Image

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.

Kerisma Eden sheer poncho (aqua, black, coral, navy, royal blue or white) $59

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

ImageImage

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

Image

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!

Travel wear?

Remember: Until Jan.31, 2016 you could win your online purchase. Just think, your travel wardrobe could be totally covered if you win. View the resort wear collection and details here.

So you have a great vacation on the horizon, nabbed a fantastic all inclusive deal and are ready to go. If keeping the spending smart is another thing on your mind (read some great money saving ideas here), remember, money saved in one area, can be better used in another.  In fact, buying resort wear is like purchasing for the impending season. Let's have a look at what Plum has to offer for a season or a reason!

This fresh, zigzag print is a great find. Easy to pair with any bottom with the wide selection of colours it provides for matching. Also great for various seasons.

Wink Wink batwing top (black/hunter/teal or black/red/pink) $55

Image

This great, easy tunic is an excellent choice for packing; also with multiple choice of colours for matching. I can also see this paisley print working very well with a cardigan and leggings or cropped pants in spring.

Acapella sheer tunic (black/white, peach/multi) $79

Image

 

Something about turquoise that's so enticing. Perhaps that it conjures up images of fields of forget-me-nots! Sweet and pretty, like this top (with a twist). Sheer enough so wearing something, such as a tank dress gives it a little extra something. And yet another piece that will work so well for spring or early summer.

Plum sleeveless top with draped twist front (black, cobalt, turquoise, white) $55

ImageImage

 

And of course, there will always be those times when what is needed is, simply a little coverage on the shoulders...this is perfect. Lightweight, a bit of sheer, pretty and practical!

Kerisma Eden sheer poncho (aqua, beige, black, coffee, coral, kelly green, royal blue, teal, white) $59

So if it happens to be that you bring in the new year on a flight to Cancun or sitting on a beach with endless blue sky above, you'll know you're prepared for the right now...and the season to come. Just remember travel is yet another thing you buy, that makes you richer!

Have a wonderful trip!

Plum now has their 2016 Resort Collection in the stores and online! Apparently liking yourself and how you look is the new black. FINALLY! After all, reality is far more interesting than any movie produced because it's unpredictable and ever changing...like us! So, you'll be going to a resort soon, where baring it all (or most) is quite likely? Well, maybe Amy Schumer (actress/comedian) didn't break the internet with her recent (Liebovitz) Pirelli 2016 photo shoot wearing nothing but her coffee cup and lacy bits; but it proves that not only is it ok to have flaws, in fact, it's to be celebrated! Plum has the best selection of resort wear to help get you ready for showing it all!

Image

The must have pieces for the trip. The ubiquitous tank and the wrap skirt...add the wide brim hat and sandals and you're set. Important to have comfortable, easy to pack and wear co-ordinates, because it's all about taking it easy and relaxing!

Plum Ribbed tank top (cotton/spandex) 10 colours $18

Wink Wink draped skirt (blue/citrus or blue/coral) $79

 

ImageImage

 

Needless to say, there will be plenty of beach time, this is a perfect item for just a bit of coverage. Clearly this great mesh coverup can be maximized by pairing it with shorts and a tank.

Wink Wink coverup (coral, turquoise, white) $69

Image

This is the back view of the fabulous dress on the front of the email. Plum's exclusive designs are always created to show interest from all angles.

Wink Wink dress with crisscross back strap (blue/citrus or blue/coral) $110

Image

White always proves to be a go to for hot weather. The above beautiful tunic is another, multiplicitous piece. Worn above with shorts but because of it's sheet nature, would work with a tank dress, capri's or bermuda's.

En Creme blouse pullover (off white) $69


It's up to you how much you bare, but time to relax means it's not time to fuss over one's perceived deficiencies. Plum's staff can help you pull together a wardrobe that will celebrate you. So many more resort options in store and online, be sure to put Plum on your to do list!

2016 Plum Resort Collection!

Final Boarding Call

Plum has put together everything you need to make your escape. We hear that February is the biggest going south month of the year for Canadians so here you go find your summer bliss during this long cold Canadian winter. Leave it all behind with all the most important get away pieces in stores and on line now. Go on... say hello sunshine, hello beach.

The "to and from" sweater does double duty on the plane ride there as well as warding off the chill of the night when temperatures dip. The nautical look is the perfect piece to pack for it's versatility... after all you can't wear a tank top to the airport. The sweater also looks great over Point Zero rolled cuffed cargo shorts in light weight cotton poplin.

Everyone needs at least a few tank tops - perennial resort favourites. Ours come in a light weight ribbed cotton spandex in 8 delicious colours. Don't leave home without one or 4 for that matter. Seen here over Mavi knee length Denim shorts.

At Plum we are famous for our Simone dresses and these new tank dresses for resort are no exception. Get your beach party on.
 
These two easy care dresses are throw on an go. No muss no fuss and that just means more time at the beach.
