Wearable or Fashionable or Both!

Great sitcom material…such is my life!  You have to admit there is great humor in the
fact a mild-mannered-high-school-teacher-mom-about-to-be-grandma in South Texas
is a fashion/beauty blogger!  But, here
is where I find myself…yes, still having a great time… 
The biggest drawback is when I am invited to blog about and attend fashion events…WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR? You can see from my day to day looks
that I am best described as WEARABLE.  It
takes a great deal more courage for this 59-year-old to cross over into
wearable/more fashionable territory. 
Courage is the operative word…I read so many blogs of fabulous women of
a certain age who look amazing and are far more fashionable and courageous than
I.  Somehow, I am still learning to marry
the two…
The table symbolizes the fact that I would be courageous in
this look…I am certain for some of you that a cape over a pencil skirt takes no
courage…but this is a bit more out there for me.  However, I am sure I will wear this soon to a
fashion event.    I feel great in it and
fashionable …so off of the table I would go into the world!!  Actually, the table belongs to my daughter
and son-in-law and I think I will save that story for later…it’s one that will
make you go AHHHHH.

This afternoon I attended a BLOGGING 101 seminar with the
some of the fashionable ladies from the San Antonio Fashion and Beauty Bloggers group.  It was fun to see them and share
ideas.  The truly fashionable ones at the
event were the models…some of which I pictured here…they were meeting with
local stylist and blogger JENNA Hollerbach.  I wore
jeans to this event…will save the red pencil for another day!

Let me know what you would wear as a blogger to a fashion
event, and then visit the ladies of VISIBLE MONDAY and MONDAY MINGLE and !CREATIVE MONDAY!!  Oh, yes, have an incredible Monday!




  1. We are both lined with red today…my coat your cape. And that's a fabulous cape too.
    Your hair always looks so pretty. I love the color and style.

  2. I'm sure I've told you before but I love you in red. One can never go wrong with a pencil skirt. Your outfits always look classic, timeless with a mix of fun and that combination can take you anywhere! xo

  3. You are a fashion statement!
    Inside and out, you represent all of us who's struggling to balance our lives with womanhood. I love your courage and openness to share your struggles and triumphs.
    You look radiant in this visible outfit! You GO, Pam!

  4. Wow! Love that cape and the red pencil together. Red really says confidence! Looks like a fun conference.

    I had an opportunity to attend a fashion show in Orange County in southern California a couple of weeks ago. My first thought was what the heck am I going to wear? I have nothing that would make me blend in with the glamour of the OC. I didn't go because it was such short notice. I am sure I could have come up with something to wear, but what I don't know!

  5. I think you've found the perfect outfit for fashion events – it's full of confidence, and it's chic and stylish! The cape is very elegant, and you shouldn't be saving it for too long.

    If I was attending an event with lots of young fashion bloggers, I would have a hard time figuring out what to wear. It's almost impossible not to feel awkward when you're the only one old enough to be their parent. I would most likely try on several outfits, take photos and then choose.

  6. I've worn some peculiar outfits indeed to fashion blogger events. It's a good time to bring out a dress printed with giant dollars, for instance!

  7. it's the perfect outfit for a fashion event. it is eye catching due to the red and the black, it is unique and your own very elegant style and finally it is wearable and gives you a good feeling! you look great!

  8. Oh, I like the cape, and the whole red/black ensemble!

    I have no clue what I'd wear to such an event. I really do need to get better at advance planning, because I'd probably find myself, on the day, running around frantically unable to settle on anything.
