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.

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

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

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!

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!

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.

Who does not like to feel like they have a say in something? I love to know I can potentially have an impact on a product design or change. This week Plum is presenting a survey (follow this link to the survey). A great opportunity to effect the outcome of future season styles. As well a you could win a $200 Gift Certificate.

One way or another spring is coming and it's great to get geared up (so to speak). I've had a peek at some great new things coming and am excited to show you a few. Save some for your trip or just be prepared for Spring. This is just the beginning of yet another great season at Plum.

Lets browse:

Image

What about a 'romantic' trip to Italy? (yes please) This sweet little dress, is just crying out for a pose next to the Trevi Fountain. However, this need not be squirreled away for a trip or spring. Very wearable now, with different footwear and tights (and of course a jacket). V-neck, daisy print, back zip, with slit.

Simone asymetrical flared hem dress black or navy $129

Image

Are you more of an adventure seeker? Lots of camping and hiking virgin trails? Then pack the shorts and go. Or, of course for spring, bring them up a notch with espadrilles or Chuck Taylors. Cargo pockets, back pockets and front pockets (purse not required).

Point Zero walking short (abalone, black) $54

Image

Is your destination a cruise? This is such a lovely dress; fabric is so delicious and soft with such a fluid drape, it's an easy pick. Pleated front, birds in flight print, with pockets.

Simone cap sleeve dress with bust pleat (black/white or navy/red) $98

Image

 

Maybe...you're just going to visit relatives. Sorry did I spoil the dream in progress? (slipped that in to see if you were paying attention). Or maybe a business trip? Or someplace not so much drenched in sunshine. This is such a fun coat for the start of the season. The black and white pattern lends itself easily to co-ordinating with any other colour.

Fate snake print Cocoon coat (black/white) $ 149

Whether it's an 'all inclusive' resort trip, a camping trip or merely planning your spring wardrobe, Plum is one step ahead. And don't forget about the survey. Your input can have an effect on upcoming seasons and you could win a $200 Gift Certificate to help you along.
