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' camp....here'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!

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!


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




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


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


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!
