Resort Wear 2017: Casual Day Wear

Are you lucky enough to be heading somewhere warm this winter?  If so, it’s time to start thinking about resort wear.  In this 3-part series, we’ll be looking at casual day wear, swim and evening looks.  First up is casual day wear.  We’ve used a navy, sand and white color scheme throughout for better mix and match opportunities with the accessories.

Resort Shorts Look

Our first look pairs white side-button detail shorts with a chambray top and some brightly colored accessories.  It’s a look that will keep you cool but polished when out sightseeing.  If you’ve never tried colored sunnies before, try easing in with a deep blue pair.  They’re a bit easier to carry off than some lighter and brighter hues and this pair coordinates with all the outfits shown today.

Workout Wear to Wow ‘Em

Perhaps surprisingly, I’ve come to rely on Target’s C9 line as my workout wear of choice.  It’s super-reasonably priced, offers a great weight and coverage (unlike those transparent numbers of the 2013 Lululemon debacle) and hold up well to countless washing.  Target refreshes the line multiple times throughout the year providing a steady supply of new prints and colors.  Old Navy also makes cute, inexpensive active wear pieces.

Currently the C9 line is running at 25% off prices below with code SAVE25.

P90X3 and Barre Amped Boot Camp Review

January is typically a time when people vow to commit or re-commit to a fitness plan.  Therefore, we thought it could be a good time to review the P90X3 and Barre Amped Boot Camp workout plans.  I completed the P90x3 series (my first DVD workout experience) this fall and am adding Barre Amped Boot Camp to my routine this winter.
