Inspiration: Taking It To Southtown and Thinking Big!

Over Thanksgiving week, I watched Rachel Ray's television program and paid close attention to a group of makeovers. This outfit popped up done from leggings with leather insets, a sweater, and denim shirt.

I thought...wow, I have all those garments...so I reversed the program, froze the screen, and shot an inspiration look to wear downtown for when my husband and I went to eat at Rosario's in Southtown...said to be San Antonio's best Mexican food restaurant. 

While enjoying my spinach enchiladas, I looked across the street to see this wall!  I love inspirational messages along with expressive faces.

Actually, this wall may have inspired something bigger inside my brain...stay tuned, I will let you know if it happens!

What would your sign say??

Have a wonderful Wednesday...now go start something big!  Linking this post to VISIBLE MONDAY!

  1. Hi Pam-what a fun look to wear out to meet your husband for dinner-you look smashing! We find inspiration for fashion in so many different locations and that's part of the fun. Can't wait to hear more of your 'something big'. You are always a mover and a shaker and that is such a compliment.
    I've been so busy-work and biz-that I'm enjoying catching up tonight. Thanks for stopping by Stylemindchic-always a pleasure.
    xx, Heather

  9. This looks great Pam!! I love the way your outfit draws the eye to your pretty face. It starts at the boots, bounces to the gloves then up to your hair. All great color placement. You knocked this one out of the park. xoJennifer
