Barkeep! Gimme A Stout Glass of...Well...Stout!

My sister's bf is a big fan of beer. I'm talkin' BIG fan, people. (Well, he is actually has a small frame, but his fanaticism is size of Andre the Giant). So when a local bar/eatery has a Stout and Porter Festival, it's not a question of if we are going, but why aren't we there now?

Naturally I had to come up with an outfit: tailored, yet comfy (especially in the tummy area to accommodate some tasty brews), and I had to wear my "birthday boots" (see my obsessive link here). Not many pictures turned out well, but here's an idea of my look:

I brought the shovel over to use as a fun prop, but then didn't do anything with it. But please enjoy my sister's recent craigslist find- the perfect metal bench. She is obsessed with furniture like I am obsessed with chambray and these crazy boots. If finding the perfect bench sends you into ecstasy, check out her blog here. And maybe see a therapist ;)

GAP linen blazer, Stem v-neck, Nordstrom scarf, Diesel jeans, Kooba bag (on super sale here!), Jeffery Campbell boots, my mom's turquoise ring (from the 70's)

When you go out and about, do you dress for comfort? Or do you have to look amazing, even if you don't get to eat? (I hope it's not the latter, that's no fun!) In any case:

CHEERS! It's almost Friday!
