Bell Sleeves and the River

FashionJan Correll2 Comments

Hi Friends,

Mr Silver and I had a wonderful trip to Texas to visit the grands.  It was a blast and those babies are getting so big... too fast!  The weather was great,  food was fantastic and had a blast shopping too!  My daughter and I always visit the same boutiques.  But this visit, we took in some shops in the Pearl District (including Hotel Emma) as well as a few shops at La Cantera in San Antonio.


In the small town where she lives, there is a boutique called River Rose.  The owner does a great job buying fun, affordable clothes.  I always find gifts for both my girls (daugher and DIL) at the boutique and found myself this cute bell sleeve dress  this visit and in olive green.  Thankfully, my height did not make this too short.  Since I travel light (OK, everyone that knows me well... knows that is a fib... I travel heavy) my daughter lent me some items for this post.  OK...not just a couple but 3 items!  HA!  It was so much fun styling this simple dress.  First, she lent me her vintage turquoise squash blossom, her very well-loved Charlie 1 Horse Lucchese boots, and a brand new numbered, Jennifer Haley bag (you have to check out her work.)  I paired this all with my own accessories as well as these Tory Burch Cat Eye Sunglasses.  

This outfit was fun and a bit different than my typical East Coast style but  with my daughters help, I loved the look.  


These photo's were taken over the Gaudalupe River near New Braunfels, TX.  If you have not visited the area, I highly suggest it.  North of San Antonio, New Braunfels offers so much to do, including tubing on either the Comal or the Guadalupe River. However, I feel it offers so much more,  including two of my 3 precious grandsons!!  If you get the chance, visit this quaint little town.


As always, thank you for reading, 







Sunday Poncho

Hi Friends,

Poncho's are FUN!  They are so versatile and can be worn so many ways; date night, business, name it!  This one was such a find and is by SundaysNYC. It is made of the softest material!  LOVE. I bought it at a local boutique Luxe Angel Boutique but they quickly sold out! I can sure see why...I would have bought one in every color!!  Underneath, I wore my white Tees  by Tina.  If you have not tried this brand...DO!  It will become a fave and they wash and wear so well!  

The boots are a staple.  When I was doing cross country travel...these were what I wore almost every a bit worn in but there is nothing like a good cowgirl boot to mold to your foot!  My bag is a Phillip Lim...I found this at Nordstrom Rack but I found the original on his website.  You will weep, if I told you the price I I will keep this a secret, unless you really want to me.  Last but not least,  Kendra Scott earnings in grey with gold accents.  Kendra Scott can dress up any outfit and pull it together.

As always, thanks for reading~

Until next time,
