Early Valentine’s Day

Is it just me or did they start advertising for Valentine’s Day really early this year?  Well, I guess the subliminal messaging worked because I wore this outfit recently:

dress- thrifted from saver’s, tights and flats- forever 21
cardigan- forever 21
apologies for the bad lighting, I’m really trying to work on it!

I wore it to a white wine tasting, which was a lot of fun!  We tasted different types of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio– I think Riesling is my favorite because it is so deliciously sweet.  Even though we are technically only allowed to go to one, I’m trying to see if I can attend the red wine tasting because the white wine tasting was so informative and fun!  Which do you prefer, red wine or white wine?

Also, I would like give a big thank you to Anna and Ribka for both giving me the Stylish Blogger Award this week!

In order to accept this award, I’m supposed to share seven things about me– however, I am really bad at sharing in this sense, so I thought maybe you guys could ask me questions (in the comments) and I will pick seven of them and answer in the next post.  How does that sound?

I’m also supposed to pass it on to seven bloggers I’ve recently discovered, so here we go!

1. Gem from Gembear
3. Amber from Amber Blue Bird
5. Kristin from Doll Parade
7. Kirstin from Crimson Rosella

  • Anggayasti

    I really love the red color on you!! You look really hot!! you need to put some more red on you!!

  • jenni wells

    Wine is one of my favorite things about life. I prefer dry whites and sweet reds. If you liked the sweetness you must try honey wines. Often times they are better than juice.

    That dress couldn't be more perfect for the occasion. It fits you beautifully.

  • Mimi

    I LOVE Valentine's Day, so naturally I love this outfit! I have so many ideas in mind for Valentine's Day outfits…I think the first two weeks of February are just going to be me wearing a bunch of red and pink floaty things. With hearts. Lots of hearts.

    Wine sounds good. You only get to go to one? How come?

    Have a great weekend! And congrats on your awards, you deserve them!
