Resort Wear 2012

Although we've had an unusually mild winter so far, I presume most of us still dream of getting away from what little chill there is in the air (hey, it tapped 19 degrees one morning last week) and/or work in the form of a tropical vacay. I suppose the fact that I just returned from the Bahamas yesterday echoes this sentiment, but apparently some of my favorite Charlotte boutiques are with me … because… they've already rolled out their Resort Wear for 2012. While I'm not ready to start talking about spring fashion just yet, I have to say, I'm loving the vibrant colors, shiny fabrics, and easy-going feel of the pieces we're seeing in these collections. And if it means strolling around your den in early January in a neon maxi dress, with a fire blazing in the background, just to put you in the mindset of sandy beaches, then I say go for it.

So, where to stop in for your Resort Wear right now?
