A. I prefer the nautical stripes over the plain blue.

Hi Lauren, I really like both of these. I went with B because it is so classic and nautical.

I like the stripes but the navy is more readable

Hi Lauren, great quote! This would be a really memorable journal to take home after a vacation. I picked the dark blue solid background because it puts the quote as the focus, and the easiest to read. Best of luck!
