On The (Wine) Trail

We had a very packed weekend! It started with a long meeting at our kid's school on Friday, after which we were both in need of a drink.  Fortunately, we had already bought tickets to the annual Blessing of the Vines in Grapevine.  It is one of my favorite events and the weather cooperated beautifully and then promptly tried to freeze us out Tuesday. Humph.

Bracelets: Blue Nile (old); c/o Ariel Gordon Jewelry (2013)
Crossbody: Rebecca Minkoff MAC (current)
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Pruneta (old)
Since we have to carry our wine glasses and drink cards from one winery to the other, I prefer a crossbody bag to keep my hands free for the important things - wine.  They have a shuttle for the two outlying wineries, but the rest are within walking distance of each other, so flats are a must.
Halfway thru the tasting, happy but not quite giddy.
If the photo quality is sub-par it is because we forgot our camera at home and had to make do with my iPhone. :)

Do you know of other wine events? Share them!


  1. There are a lot of stuff going in the Livermore area in Northern California. It is east of San Francisco and lot less crowded than Napa.

  2. Oh! I liked some of those! We are going to Sonoma in a couple of weeks for another wedding, but we are just guests and we can't wait to spend some time in the area and explore!

  3. That sounds like such a fun even and your outfit is perfect for it! Love the combination of the dress with the more casual, comfortable flats because those in addition to a crossbody purse are essential for something like just like you said!

  4. Thanks, Jess! The wine trail out there is one of my favorite events every Spring!


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
