Wino

February 28, 2012

Last weekend I had was invited to attend The Virginia Wine Showcase with a few friends. Seeing as how I do love a nice glass of vino now and again, I happily agreed. The wines were pretty good, although a lot of them were a bit too on the sweet side for me. I prefer a heavy red like a malbec or a cab sauv (just in case you ever want to get me some wine, thought you should know).

I decided to wear my new suede high waisted shorts from H&M and built the outfit around it. The nice berry color reminded me of my favorite type of wine – see above if you’ve already forgotten said favorite wines.

As you can tell, the several wine tastings definitely got to me. I hadn’t been this tipsy on a Sunday afternoon since college. Oh day drinking, how I’ve missed you. A good time was had by all, especially me.

Do you enjoy wine tastings? What do you typically wear to them? How do you feel about day drinking? Do you think I’m an alcoholic? (I’m not an alcoholic, just an alcohol appreciater).

    The wine tastings I’ve been to happens in the Summer. So, my outfits tend to be very easy and breezy. Light.

    Considering, I’m longing for a glass of white wine right now (it’s 11:03am), I’m all for day drinking. :o) #TeamAlcoholAppreciater!!!

    Meanwhile, very cute high-waisted shorts.

      Vivi- I seriously can’t wait until it’s time for summer wine tastings. Perhaps we should organize a wine tasting extravaganza??

    Adorable! And day-drinking is not drinking if it’s just tasting. Really, that’s part of the rules.

    P.S. I’ve been looking for the perfect striped tee . . . And I think I like yours best so far. It’s been way too long since I’ve been shopping!

      Jennifer- I completely agree, and I checked the day drinking handbook to confirm. Way too long since you’ve been shopping? I don’t think those words have ever passed my lips. Gets-a-shoppin!! :)

        Haha, way ahead of you! Bought 2 dresses today, one for $15 and one for $5. The deal makes them even sweeter. :)

          Nice!! Although my closet would probably disagree with me, I think you can never have enough dresses :)
