Last Friday, Dave and I decided to book a last-minute hotel for Saturday night in Milwaukee. We didn’t have much planned other than joining in the Mitten Fest hoopla at Burnhearts, a small bar in neighboring Bay View with an excellent beer lineup. They host the annual outdoor festival to raise money and collect donations for a local nonprofit, and lure people there with beer, food, and live music. And while I wore a more practical coat than the one featured here (and one I didn’t mind having beer splashed on), this outfit is a pretty good representation of what I typically wear in the winter for daytime drinks at cozy beer bars, running errands, and sightseeing strolls around the city. Plus, it’s a great example of why having a fun coat collection is vital for beating the winter doldrums. It’s hard to be unhappy about winter’s chill when there’s a pretty coat in your arsenal!
P.S. Remember to enter to win a sterling silver “XOX” charm necklace from Helen Ficalora!
