Color for Resort-Holiday Wear

Although it got up to 83 degrees this afternoon, a few days ago temperatures dipped into the low-70s, so I was excited to layer on a variety of colors. You know I love color! And since traditional Christmas colors are green and red, I decided on coral and kelly green with navy tossed in for a fun preppy-resort look.

The personalized bag I’m carrying is new to the blog, although I’ve had it a while. It’s from a company called Barrington Gifts, which offers a variety of bags and totes that can be customized with your choice of pattern, stripe (if you want it), and monogram colors. I had so much fun designing mine.

Merry Christmas to all of you who are celebrating it tomorrow. And to everyone, I wish you much joy, love, and peace. 🙂

      Hi, Laura! Thank you! I think it’s a fun and pretty watch, because it’s sparkly, plus you can change out the watch bands to create different looks. I appreciate you stopping by and also commenting — and I wish you and your family a lovely holiday, too. Cheers! ~Janis
