True Resort

10 Jul

Originally resort wear (as indicated by its name) was created by high-end designer labels for their customers that were expected to “holiday” in warmer climates after the cooler Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.  Fast forward many moons and the resort collections have adapted to reach a broader audience and provide year-round looks to accommodate a variety of lifestyles.  As I type – Brett and I are T minus 15 hours away from our departure from Beijing to the Maldives.  So naturally…with thoughts of the crystal clear Indian Ocean on the brain,  I would like to focus on the “True Resort” looks that graced the runways during Resort 2013.  While they are not available yet – I did find inspiration in every look as I packed this morning.  (And to answer any questions…YES  – being almost 6 months pregnant created quite a few “packing challenges”.)   Only time and pictures will tell…

    Those last three dresses are georgous! They would work for us preggos too with the right skinny belt! I’m going to go lay on my padded lawn chair and imagine I’m wearing them on our Fiji Babymoon we don’t get to take now. Le sigh…

    Can not wait to see your Maldives post and pictures! How fun! You will love it and I’ve heard they really rebuilt beautifully after the Tsunami so I’m interested to see how everything looks!
