Play Dress Up: Outdoor Festival Season

17 May

This past weekend the Jollys went to the 15th Annual Legendary Boonville Beer Fest at the Mendocino Country Fairgrounds.

We celebrated this day of Hops, Hippies and Hipsters with Ben, Pedro and Leigh-Ann.  The temperature was not warm and sunny like you would expect for this time of year in Northern California.  It was essential to layer and layer and layer. To keep some style while staying toasty…here’s what I came up with.

Ok granted you can’t see just how cute my outfit was, but….it was essential to stay warm and dry, but comfy.  There was a lot of walking and spilled beer!

I wore my favorite pair of black leggings with a navy tunic and orange cardigan (unseen!).  Of course I had to throw on a fleece with my favorite pashmina and Fossil sling bag I use when I’m out and about.  The boots I have on are from Kohls — I love them so much I’ve tried to buy another pair just in case with no luck!

Here’s the Hubs and I loving beer.  This is when I was savoring a secret pour from North Coast of Le Merle.  Run don’t walk to find this effervescent gem of a brew.

Leigh-Ann visited from Washington, DC and I miss her oh-so-much!  What I love about my Plus One is that she will do anything…like taking a picture in a bear’s legs….

See that gorgeous headband she’s wearing?  I picked that up for her birthday at a car wash boutique in Campbell, CA of all places! Yes a car wash boutique — the Delta Queen — seriously check this joint out.

I’m looking forward to the summer full of outdoor of activities!

I also want to give a shout-out to my beautiful Kindred Sister – Mo – who ran the 12K Bay to Breakers on Sunday!  Way to go – I’m SO, SO proud of you!

    Ginger, this post rocks but you forget to write about the ASH pasta and how about the karaoke performance? That might need to be different post in and of itself–karaoke chic!

    Muah, thanks for an awesome weekend!!
