Happy Sunday, friends! Welcome! Today I am showing you How I wore Chico’s to see “Hamilton.”
“Hamilton” was showing last week at the amazing Majestic Theater in San Antonio. We have season passes and looked forward to our first time to see this musical.
As I often do, I had spent time considering many looks for the theater, but one big factor came In around noon that day…a windy, substantial cool front for South Texas.
HOW I WORE CHICO’S
I wanted to make sure I was warm…not bulky…and always vibrant and fun!
The theater seats are old…tiny aisles and seats…and I knew (typical of how we respond to just a little cold) we would be in a warm building. Texans tend to overdo the heat once a front comes in.
The New Faux-Suede Snake-print Shacket was perfect for an outing downtown to enjoy the surroundings and then attend “Hamilton.”
This is a little more casual than I usually dress for the theater, but it worked for a casual-chic style. People wore a little bit of everything that night from sloppy tee shirts to ball gowns!
Shackets are new designs in the fashion world created in order to meet needs for more stylish casual options. They are a cross between a shirt and a jacket.
This is a great neutral shacket for my autumn wardrobe.
One thing about being a long time “Chico’s Lady” is that the pieces look as if they were in the same collections. My orange leopard top purchased over a year ago matched this shacket perfectly.
I also wore two pieces of jewelry from my longtime-building Chico’s collection.
I find this design to be functional, stylish, comfortable, and modern. I would like to add one or two more to my new wardrobe…depending on color.
Here are other options currently at Chico’s:
HOW I WORE CHICO’S IN DOWNTOWN SAN ANTONIO
I wore my Chico’s on top, and Eileen Fisher brown pants and Naturalizer boots on the bottom to roam Downtown San Antonio in chilly winds.
This time we decided to eat at the delicious Acenar on the Riverwalk.
It is sooooo good. Yes, our waiter is making our guacamole unique to our liking at our table…not too hot…not too cold…but just right.
I loved the vegetarian enchiladas. Mr. B decided to veer out of his box and try something new…Mole Enchiladas…and he loved them too…and he is a picky Mexican food expert!
His dish had a taste of peanut butter chocolate which completely worked.
We highly recommend this restaurant if you are attending the theater. They made note when we told them we were going and made sure we were on our way in time.
Downtown San Antonio is always a good idea. As the song says…”Forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go downtown!” A nod to Petula Clarke!
We finally made our way to the theater to see a highly acclaimed production we were looking forward to.
“Hamilton” is brilliantly” staged…was performed well (LOVED George Washington!)…choreographed to perfection.
However, (you could feel the but coming couldn’t you?) our season pass seats are located high in the balcony and often from there, the rap music was very difficult to follow or understand.
But, I did hear loud & clear several strong cuss words. I do not believe men in the 1700s knew the F-word or GD. I found it to be unnecessary and to detract from the performance…at least for me.
I am one of those people who does not attend many modern movies because of the bad language they are laced with.
Especially with so many young children in the audience! Really? Just not necessary.
Otherwise, the performance was enjoyable and I am now going to dive into some history…it made me want to research and re-visit Alexander Hamilton’s life. I have already ordered the book that inspired the play.
I was so comfortable in my outfit and did not fuss with it at all. Super glad I wore Chico’s to Hamilton.
Now, your turn…what do you think of Shackets??
Please share your thoughts…..and thank you so much for being here and participating with me…you are a blessing!
