resort wear


Really...who wears shorts in winter? Except maybe your boyfriend or the guy from UPS? I remember my Mother recounting to me stories of my Father shoveling snow in below zero weather... 'maybe' wearing a jacket. Is wearing shorts or short sleeves in winter 'a thing'? Truthfully, the majority of people wearing shorts in winter are heading them in the security lineup at the airport, fully ready to get out of the cold and into the warm! And if that happens to be you, make a detour to Plum first; well known for having the best selection of resort wear. Get to your destination fully ready to do nothing but sit, enjoy, relax. 


Forget about digging out, musty old, out of season clothing. Go shopping. Go home, move garments from shopping bag to travel and done! Easy. If you select well, you can just go with carry on. T shirts are a must have and Plum has an excellent variety to choose from.

And then there's the tank dress....easy to put on; belt it if you prefer a more accessorized look. And with a simple change of your footwear, and jewelry, and maybe hair up, moves into evening for dancing or dining.

Wherever you're headed...there will be 'night'! Sundown 'will' happen and you'll need at least a light cover. Comprised of viscose this is so flowing, light and easy. No buttons...and very long.

If you're a pants person, do not pass these up. With the effortless flow of rayon, these are going to be your go to pants for the entire season, not just vacation. Long, wide legs, pockets and a truly rudimentary print these will be a breeze to co-ordinate.

Stevie wide leg pant 100% rayon (black print) $77 IN STORES NEXT WEEK

I may not be headed south or someplace warm and void of precipitation, but I do love what's new and fresh and this is just a hint of what Plum has received for Spring. If you're like me and do not like missing out on your size and colour of choice, be the first to get in and check out what's new and needed.

Yours in Fashion passion....

ps...enjoy your trip!

As we say good bye to a potentially abominable year (no I'm not just talking about the snow), we think back. Some of us would rather not, after all, a veritable playlist of musicians left us, questionable leadership voted in, earthquakes in Italy, Haiti getting hit again and newsworthy closer to home, Fort Mac fires happening.  Seemed to be more forgettable news than memorable. Either you 'Let it Go' or....get away and forget it all! If you belong to the 'LET'S GO''s a bit of packing inspiration.


Looking like angel wings preparing for winged flight, this beautiful, light cover is just what is needed to ward off a little chill.

Kerisma Eden sheer poncho (6 colours) $59


Look on the bright side....seriously! Look at this lovely, bright top. If this lively pattern doesn't brighten your mood, your destination surely will. A buffet of colours and patterns which will be simple to co-ordinate.

Wink Wink cap sleeve t shirt (3 colour patterns) $39


Another bright, lively piece that mimics 2 pieces and looks like a field of flowers. The less you have to pack the better.

Wink Wink tank dress draped top (blue or white/blue) $110


No question about it, when you think of warmer climates and just hanging out....linen comes to mind. Inevitably, if you're a 'pant' person, this is the best fabrication. Loose, light and casual.

M drawstring linen pants (navy and stripe) $90


Plum ribbed tank top (13 yummy colours) $18

Bear Dance pugs doing yoga $35

Wink Wink tank top with curved hem (blue or light blue)$55

And then there's a fantastic assortment of tank tops, graphic t's and tops. The possibilities are endless especially if you pack just right, with only a few key pieces.

Pretending 2016 did not happen is no more possible than cake being used as a weight loss method. Since neither is bound to happen any time soon, and you have a great escape planned to plot a successful 2017, make a trip to Plum first and get some good packing karma!

pack smart, look great!

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.

While the rest of us are scrambling for that last minute 'special' gift or packing for family will be secretly laughing to yourself...sidestepping all the chaos by heading for warmer climates... an all-inclusive perhaps? (I'll try not to hate you). But why put yourself though torture you've avoided so far by unearthing clothing from four months ago. Do you even know where they are? No worries. Plum has an extensive resort wear collection to help you prepare. Here is a small sample...




Of course, shorts and t shirts might well be your least a staple. Plum has a great, fun collection of Bear Dance tank tops. Cute, silly and make a great conversation start up! Or, if you're still needing to do a gift exchange they're a great option.

Bear Dance t shirts (just a sample of what's in store, above)



And of course you need bottoms. Crop pants, shorter or these-are-my-gorgeous-legs length. So many options, you'd think it was actually summer now!

Point Zero capri (curry, diamond, lichen or white) $65

Point Zero bermuda cotton/twill/spandex (curry, diamond, lichen or white) $55

Mavi pixie short denim (ultra blue vintage) $78



Love the pattern of this paisley eye catching. With a short sleeve, draw string waist and an easy waterfall hem, you can't go wrong with this as one of your dress options (and believe me Plum has many).

Simone V-neck dress (blue multi or red multi) $140


Don't forget, on occasion, you'll need a cardigan or coverup...Choose from many options, I've included just a few above. A crop cardigan or breezy, gauzy kimono. So light it will take up little or no space.

Kersh rib waist cardigan (7 colours) now $35

Cecico kimono blouse (brown or sea green) $59

When packing for a trip out of season this usually presents a unique, lack of selection challenge. However, Plum's large resort collection, removes that stress.  Choose from gorgeous print dresses, light weight pants/bottoms and coverups. When you board the plane 'your troubles will be miles away' (as they say in the song). 

Wishing you a fun and safe trip!
