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.
Cape: Stein Mart
Red Pencil: Lane Bryant

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!
