Evening at the Museum...Worthy of Two Posts And Fashion Flash Monday!

Saturday evening we attended a fabulous, beautiful wedding reception.  The wedding, itself,  was in one of San Antonio's oldest, historic churches downtown, TRAVIS PARK UNITED METHODIST CHURCH.  However, it was the reception at the MCNAY ART MUSEUM which pleased everyone in attendance.

Today's post is about what I wore to the event...Wednesday's post will include pictures of the reception, the museum, and fashions worn by others.  I hope you can join me for both.
Recently, I was the featured speaker at a local CHICO'S event and everyone in attendance received a special discount for the evening.  So, I went home with this lightweight, sparkly duster and gorgeous necklace!!  I felt very appropriate for the evening.

This vintage beaded bag was given to me by my mother-in-law years ago...and I really like it when I am going to be taking pictures because it hangs on my arm. 

 A clutch, often times, is difficult to navigate when I want to be madly snapping the camera! This bag was perfect!

My legs were just too white at this early stage of summer to go without nylons.  It was a fabulous evening...please join me on Wednesday for the rest of the story!
Linking up with MONDAY MINGLE!

  1. You look very nice in this outfit. The necklace is gorgeous, and that vintage bag that your mother-in-law gave you is so special. Anything with beads and jewels, and I'm there. This looks like a lovely place for a wedding reception. The old historic churches are the most beautiful to me.


  2. Your necklace and duster coat look fab, a really lovely look.
