wardrobe wednesday: Colour me resort

Sometime ago, the fashion houses deemed it lucrative to put out a "resort" line for all those well-to-do jet-setters to go off gallivanting in Banf, or sunning on "holiday" in Monaco. We're not sure if any of it is really worn (or even packed), but no matter. With bursts of color and an unabashed backlash against anything grey and serious, for us it means a break from all this dreary midwestern weather.  Lucky for us, we received a generous Caribbean "gift" this year and were allowed to take part in a bit of sunning ourselves.

The vibe, color and pure attitude of the warm waters, sandy beaches and carefree smiles of the natives put us in a rather optimistic and experimenting disposition. To which we say, give us color! A few pieces inspired by some rather colorfully taken photo's.

Delicious pink Hibiscus




Swaying green palms against a robins egg blue sky... not a cloud in sight!


Lovely yellow from Curaco -- albeit a little grey bc of rain.. :(
