Can you believe it…already the last week of September?! So… welcome Monday with a smile! Thanks for joining me for my Fall Outfit #1: To the theater.
Two contacts resulted in my posts for this week…one reader wanted to see me experiencing my life wearing the garments I show on this blog!
Then my sweet friend and online stylist, Annie Castano, got confused when I started posting outfits of me wearing colors that are not MY colors.
I promised to do that for some of you who are not “autumns” and I have fulfilled that promise, but it confused Annie.
So, this week’s post will feature me in my every day life wearing some of the pieces I so often show you!
I needed a complete wardrobe makeover when I accepted the fact I am a VIBRANT AUTUMN and want to live it every day!
So, let’s get started with FALL OUTFIT #1 and why I wore it to the theater!
I feel like every part of my life is now more casual than it was before the pandemic hit.
The most significant changes for me have been to see locals dress more casual for church and for entertainment events like going to the theater downtown.
So I want to look nice, but not be over dressed!
We began the evening with hors d’oeuvres and wine in the bar area of Bohanan’s…one of our favorite places downtown. (That crab cake was amazing!)
San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre is exactly that….majestic! This is why in the past I loved to dress up…but now, would be out-of-place unless in one of the stunning boxes on the sides.
For this evening, I decided to go with a column of black….Eileen Fisher tank and Joan Vas Leggings (I bought these at Marshall’s years ago and just love them)….and top it with a wonderful statement piece.
Statement pieces…pieces with standout color and design…are so beneficial to my wardrobe…it keeps me fresh and interesting.
My Chico’s Reversible Floral to Animal Print Duster Jacket was just the ticket to bridge between theater wear and casual chic. I topped it with a necklace of cinnamon beads previously found at Nordstrom.
And my gold sparkly loafers….a past purchase.
As I have said before, I did keep a few black pieces…like these…a column of black is beneficial in many ways…and I can top it with a fabulous piece in my colors like this one!
For a column of black, look at this great tank now on sale: Matte Jersey Everyday Tank.
Here are some other statement pieces currently at Chico’s:
We went to see “My Fair Lady” and Mr. B and I both are still pondering embellishments that were taken with the script.
The music, of course, was wonderful…but they made the professor far more abusive than he originally was…though arrogant…he was not as downright abusive as this interpretation made him out to be.
In this musical, he is not likable at all…and the end just leaves you feeling bad for everyone…so we are not sure why this character was so over-the-top ugly….with not a tinge of remorse.
But, I do love going to the theater…and it always makes for good conversation after!!
Thanks for being here…all comments are welcome…and make sure you …..
