Christmas Color Rock: The San Antonio Way!





When Collette asked me to join her Christmas Color Rock, I knew that my weekend in downtown San Antonio would be the perfect place for pictures. Our Riverwalk Christmas Celebration is renowned for the lights and influences of a distinct Mexican heritage….you just might not find more variety in Christmas colors set to the tunes of Mariachi bands anywhere!

Red Traveler's Cami: Chicos
Spanx Tights: Nordstroms
Antonio Melani Flats: Dillards
Vintage Gold Clutch: Mother-in-Law


We were off to a Christmas party at the beautiful Westin Riverwalk Hotel for the first night! The gold skirt I selected seemed to blend right with the hotel d├ęcor of gold ribbons, ornaments, brocade, and chandeliers. Fashion-wise, this party was all about fabulous shoes and I made sure I captured a few of them for you to see.



















Every post this week will introduce you to some slice of our unique downtown at Christmas. I hope you will enjoy the tour. But, today was all about satisfying your taste for color….tis the season to wear it all!

Now, girls, what is your favorite holiday color??
