HOLIDAY DATE NIGHT WITH MY HUSBAND

When it comes to clothing, I think ivory is the first color with which I ever fell in love. It’s such a soothing tone. I have it in a variety of pieces, including accessories, because so many other colors go with it. Plus, it looks wonderful on its own in one long, lean column.

This “date night with my husband” outfit is several different shades of ivory mixed with a skirt, but I also like to wear this shirt and cardigan with ivory pants. I could have chosen higher heel pumps, but opted for these kitten heels, because I knew we’d be walking several blocks after dinner at Ridgway Bar & Grill, viewing the holiday lights along Third Street South.

It’s been a while since my husband and I dined downtown so close to Christmas, and I was amazed at how busy it was. It seems like only yesterday when our little Naples was still just a small, mostly undiscovered town.

Then again…maybe it has been three decades since then. It certainly isn’t undiscovered anymore. It wasn’t even 5:30 in the evening when we arrived, and we were lucky to find a parking space!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. If you celebrate Christmas, I send you wishes for a peaceful, merry day–and to all of you, have a happy, healthy New Year!

    • Hi, Bernadine! Your compliment honors me so very much. Thank you. I’m happy you liked seeing the Naples lights. It’s a small stretch of 3rd Street that is lit like this, but I enjoyed seeing it. Thank you for your continual support of both my blog and my videos. I appreciate it! Wishing you and your family a peaceful, happy 2018! Hugs ~ Janis

  2. I was pleasantly surprised to see that your latest vlog post featured the Talbots Shimmering Dot Popover Blouse that I had just purchased that day. I guess your style is rubbing off on me! I always look forward to your videos and admire your classic elegance and refined demeanor. You are an inspiration for those of us who prefer the finer things in life at a budget price. I will be thinking of you when my husband and I visit Naples next March. Merry Christmas and Happy 2018!

  3. Janis, I loved your ivory outfit. It looked so beautiful on you. You truly look fabulous in every outfit. Also, I enjoyed watching the festive video. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. Looking forward to watching your videos in 2018. Best wishes, Monika
