Have you seen our new exclusive pattern?

Run To Paradise co-founder Mel started drawing up her fantasy vintage patterns during COVID-19 lockdown in Australia last year, and now you can own it on a tote bag.

Resort wear's a cinch when the sun swelters and you can roll out of bed into your private swimming pool or secluded beach. 

But that's not really how 2020 is for any of us, unless you permanently live in paradise, pandemic or not. As the Australian skies darken, how do we lift our spirits? By summoning our internal resort vibe, that's how. 

As any Melbourne citizens know, mastering the art of layered dressing is essential for successful living. Mel shows you how to layer your resort looks at home.
