One of my favorite things to do with friends is to stop in to one of our many amazing museums in San Antonio, catch the latest collection, and get lunch (preferably at or near the museum). This is why I chose this topic today for What Should I Wear?
Of course, when attending an art museum, I love to add a touch of creativity, artistic flair or even whimsy to what I am wearing. Mostly because color and creativity abound at the museums.
The great thing about a huge closet cleaning is to find pieces which were forgotten in the clutter. I love this cardigan I got a few years back at Marshalls…it is a different design from other cardigans I own. The red pants are previous Soft Surroundings colored Metro Leggings (these have been discontinued) but I really like the pant. My touch of creativity comes from an Anthropologie scarf and a Victoria Bosco handbag that I have owned for years. Love the bag, but I do not believe she is selling product any longer. There is just something about the striped top when I want to look artistic/Parisian…it is a classic. This is an older striped top from The Loft, but Chico’s has a great one right now, designed to flatter, that I have here…just had to share it. The seam placements on this top will make your appear smaller!
When I was in Chicago, we ate at the Art Institute of Chicago and any time I can eat at a museum or shop in a museum store…count me in! I love the ambience and the unique offerings. San Antonio has one where you can eat by the famous Riverwalk.
To do a lot of walking and maintain a cool, youthful vibe, I chose my Rockport Black Leather Sneakers. I know I wear them often…they are a favorite. Now, I want to confess after singing the virtues of my FitBit in 2018, I did not use it for half of 2019. That was a mistake and I have it back on my wrist again. Walking the museum is a good way to get in the steps. The main reason I need it is that I will tend to sit for hours working at a computer and I need it to nag me to get up and move around. So “the nag” is back and I am glad to have it. It is also a great way to monitor heart rate.
One of my favorite paintings ever is in Chicago of these women shopping for shoes! How fun is this? Just a reminder that throughout time, ladies have enjoyed dressing up, shopping, lunching….so many activities…together!
I also wore this same outfit recently switching the scarf for a faux leather necklace offered by Sylca Designs. They have so many fun necklaces! This one looks so good with the black leather sneakers.
This topic inspired me to select Elaine with her five style adjectives to feature in the slideshow today. Elaine wants to communicate that she is classy, casual, comfortable, confident and creative with her style. So, I have made selections with Elaine and women like her in mind…
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE!!
