a resort collection for those of us not beach-bound come january.

by rebecca willa davis

Traditionally, resort collections were conceived for those certain ladies (and in this instance, no we are not the ladies) who had the means to travel around the world, boarding cruises and vacationing in sunny locales.

But what does a resort collection look like if you're not beach-bound come January? For our type of ladies, it looks like the Marc by Marc Jacobs resort '14 collection.

There are plenty of pieces that would look good if you were indeed planning to take a few months off and travel--tailored shirts, wooden-heeled sandals, dainty steamer trunk-esque purses. But for ladies like us, there are also metallic jackets, embellished button-downs, fuzzy berets, and floral-patterned dresses we'd wear all the way through spring. And those snap barrettes? They're way more '90s raver than '50s jet-setter.

And really, is there anything that can help you forget the fact that you're not circling the globe than a sequined puffer? Exactly.
