The Fashionable Sipper

One of my favorite summer activities is drinking. That makes me sound like a raging alcoholic but I don't mean it how you think. In college, I often said I "liked to drink", but that meant I liked to chug as many Keystone Lights as I could until I either A) Threw Up or B) Passed Out. Yes, I "liked to drink" then.
{Beer, Wine, Cocktails - all deserve their own look.}

These days, my inclination to indulge in libations has to do with kicking my feet up after a long day and has little to do with playing last man standing. Rather, the summer drinking I perpetually enjoy involves simply sipping and enjoying fine beer, wine and cocktails. All about SAVORING over SLOSHING (I mean, we all have our nights out time and again, but those are the exception, not the rule).

Nothing tops off a steaming Saturday afternoon like transpiring with good company and good drinks. And of course, each drink deserves its very own special wardrobe. I always think of what I will wear when I'm leaving home to embark on a day of tastings. And I usually look to these similar fashion families depending on which type of Spirit I choose to enjoy:
Beer
[bohemian. earthy. natural. easy.]
Brew 'fit





Wine [sophisticated. classically trendy. streamlined.]
Wine Fit





Cocktails [raw. dangerous. exuberant. bold.]
Cocktail 'Fit





These are just my takes- what do you like to wear when you sip on your favorite spirit?

I TOTALLY agree that each setting should have a different wardrobe! I Love your choices. The heels in the last two looks are KILLER. Love the HIGH oxfords and the sassy yellow heels.

I'm going to have to go with the beer look but its hard to choose because i love all of them! Esp those yellow shoes!!! So cute

Megan said...

this is totally a cute post!!!!

usually when im out and about im sipping on a beer. okay...not usually, but 99% of time. i LOVE beer...and by looking at the outfits you posted, i can honestly say my personality fits sooo much more with the beer outfit than the others! i dont drink crap beer though...usually the good stuff.

usually when i drink wine im at home...by myself...on a friday night. so im wearing sweatpants and a sports bra (b/c im classy like that).

Megan's comment about drinking wine in her sweats made me LOL...That is totally what I do too! I don't drink wine when we go out, because my hubby sells wine and we get it for free at home. (Whoop whoop!) My drink of choice is captain & coke, and the corresponding outfit is either a bathing suit and boat, or jeans and my heels. Love it!

Erika said...

Okay, so you are my new favorite person for creating ensembles to accompany your drink du jour. I'm definitely more of a cocktails person - in dress and drink of choice. I don't actually drink them, but I do like to hold one as an accessory! :P

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

This is such a fun post! and while i like to think iculd pull off the cocktails dress, I am more of the beer person here... LOVE that dress you picked!

Tina said...

oh but i love all these outfits!! especially the wine and beer. and it's totally true, there is a certain "outfit" vibe that goes along with each of these things. and another thing very true - alcohol takes sooo much better in the summer!

Kristin W said...

I couldn't pull it off, but I am loving the wine drinking romper! I love each of the styles. Since D works for a beer company, I'm typically rocking the more natural bohemian looks, which suit my personal style anyway :)

{andthisiswhatshesaid} said...

Totally love everything. Specially the wine post!!

inHERshoes said...

love the wine and bohemian outfit picks! oh if only i could walk in those heels! haha :)

Tamara Nicole said...

Oh my goodness i love this post! An outfit for each drink, and I'd wear them all:-) I do love me a drink from time to time. Hmmmm I love dresses for both cocktails and vino. So cute! I may grab a glass of wine right now, cheers!

Punctuation Mark said...

love the first look... very cool for a summer afternoon!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Interesting, I like the idea of these outfits and how you approach drinking. I don't drink beer and not that big a fan of cocktails (except for jack and coke), but it seems to me I like to mix a bit of all of what you mentioned for my drinking outings! I think I would say it's natural, definitely sophisticated and kind of bold - all in one lol

Kara said...

Lovveeeee this!! Further confirmation that I'm a beer girl...I'd absolutely wear the first outfit every day for the rest of my life. Not gonna lie though, I've had wine AND a cocktail this week too! :)

Rick said...

this post was so creative. I loved how you matched drinks with associated attire. Just goes to show fashion can be incorporated into every aspect of our social lives!

Kim's Vanity said...

That's neat, I never thought how the outfit you wear can match the drink you're having, but it's so true! Just looking at your relaxing, summery beer outfit made me want to hit a patio now. Have an awesome weekend!

Cupcakes and Cosmopolitans said...

Ha, I love this post!
I don't drink that much, however I do enjoy my cocktails though, long islands, yes please. Don't like beer, I have had the regular kind, whatever that is...What's the expensive kind?
Is it weird that I would say I am more dressed like the "beer girl" when I am getting my long island on?
