What's getting me through the freezing cold weather? For one, the warmest down coat in the world from Marc Jacobs (I swear it's better than any North Face or Patagonia), but also a Vince cashmere sweater that I have to actually talk myself out of wearing everyday, lots of tea....and the fact that, at the end of February, I'm going to Jamaica!

I'm a firm believer that, when you live in a climate where the temperature drops to the single digits for weeks at a time, that alone qualifies you to deserve a mid-winter getaway to someplace warm. This year, we chose Jamaica because one of the my best friends is getting married there, so in addition to the requisite beachwear, linen shorts and casual sundresses, I also have to pack a few nicer outfits for the wedding festivities. And what better place to go for super-chic resort wear than Tory Burch? I'm obsessed with the prints and color palette of her 2014 resort collection.

Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Panama sunglasses
