While sharing my favorite resort collections from 2014 might seem like torture to most of you living in the Northern Hemisphere, however, it seems quite appropriate as I enter my second week checking out all the pretty beaches down under. Sorry, not sorry, but I’m resort ready!

Nailing casual chic would be an understatement when describing Carven’s Resort Collection. While beach escapes don’t typically require coats, they are the perfect throw on any time of year. These give a nod  to the mod era with the oversized peter-pan collars 60’s inspired shapes, yet appear freakishly cool paired with a thin, rectangular pair of sunglasses that take us right into the future!


Derek Lam’s travel inspired collection was also nothing short of magic. His aspiration to reimagine the suit was accomplished with gorgeous sleeveless tops and matching cropped trousers and skirts. I especially love the high-neck tank with that slight peplum at the back- a very relaxed and easy take on the flattering shape. I can’t help but have a sweet spot for the designer, a native San Franciscan doing my adopted city proud!


Karen Walker’s collection most screams Oz to me. Perhaps that’s because she’s one of the most amazing designers coming out of New Zealand {so sad I won’t be visiting NZ this time around!}. Of course, famous for her eyewear, the nude, round sunnies are the first thing that jump out at me. I’m obsessed with the copper colored mirrored lenses. Not many people are aware of Karen’s garments. I love the pleats and cuts she uses and these Traveller’s Pants are singing sweet songs to me right now! Oh, and her shoes? Gorge. Lusting over this pair.


I don’t know about you, but I am fully enjoying this burst of sunshine in November. I not going to think about going back to reality anytime soon. If you need more summer inspiration to brighten up a cold fall day, here are some more resort collections I loved!
