Resort Wear 2017


While Resort may be the dreamiest of collections, it is by far the most impractical. In my eyes, Resort was reserved for the Voguettes and M'Odettes of the world. Girls who are whisked away to magical islands and private resorts for fantastical parties and glamorous beach nights. These visions are a far cry from my reality, where my Resort collection is made up of ensembles from summertime fun and vacations of the past.

In an effort to infuse some newness and refresh my look for my holiday ahead, I will indulge in an occasional Resort purchase. This buy is hardly impulsive, as I have had my eye on it since September, impatiently waiting for a sale. This leads to me my Resort time picks above, where a Zimmermann set and Muzungu basket bag will make for ideal presents to myself for my warm climate trip. Plus, I’ll add some funky earrings and rose colored glasses, because...let’s be honest, everything is better when it is rose colored:)
Though not all of us will travel to a faraway land filled with palm trees, soft sand and crashing waves, we can still embrace Resort and style that diaphanous Ellery blouse or floral Dolce skirt with a winter piece, providing a light contrast to our dark wool knits and black, suede boots. Think of this season as a time to embrace bright colors, ditsy prints and silky fabrics as a defense against the gray clouds, snowy days and freezing temps. So the next time you grab a tropical style dress, think of it not as just a piece of clothing, but as a sort of reprieve from the cold and as a reminder that after Resort comes Spring.
