What I Might Wear on a Summer's Eve...And Fashion Flash Monday!


June evenings...in South Texas, this is the time to get out and enjoy.  Once we get into late July through September, the heat can zap even the night fun.
Now, some may call this a duster, some a long jacket, some a ruana...but, I call it FUN!!  The piece caught my eye in MARSHALL'S recently and it is perfect for a summer's evening with even a touch of shimmer in in.
I really like a multi-purpose garment like this...it would work beautifully as a swim suit cover-up.  But, styled this way, I can go down to the SAN ANTONIO RIVERWALK for dinner on a patio, to a backyard cook-out, or to sit on the lawn at our HEMISFAIR PLAZA and watch an outdoor movie projected on a building...I miss drive-in theaters!  Don't you??


I found this necklace at CLOTHES MENTOR (Blanco @ 1604) resale and loved it!!  Resale jewelry really gives a wardrobe affordable options.










When I was out last weekend, I was surprised to see so many Texas ladies in the summer wearing black (that did not use to be the case).





Since my outfit is silver and black, I hope to wear it to the celebration river parade for our San Antonio Spurs FIFTH (let me write that again, FIFTH) NBA Championship.  Go Spurs Go! It has been so much fun to watch a true, selfless team play basketball! Congratulations to everyone...particularly, Tim, Manu, Tony and Pop!

I know I will get a lot of wear out of this purchase.  What do you like to wear on a summer's evening?

  2. It's a very festive outfit. But the fan takes the cake, brilliant! I have quite a collection of fans (all from a small shop in Barcelona), and I actually use them, too (I don't like hot weather... I use sun umbrellas, too...)

  5. A beautiful layering piece for warm weather, Pam. I think I would have to approach everyone for a hug with arms outspread so they could see it in it's full glamor. :)

  6. GREAT top, Pam! It adds a lot of interest but "plays well with others." I love warm (not hot) summer evenings and enjoying time outdoors.

  10. I do like your lacey coverup. I am always layering in the summer if going from indoors to outdoors. Seems many places like the air on high and I need something layered to keep me comfortable. Thanks for sharing
