Wine a little, you'll feel better

The color for today for the Fall Color Challenge is wine.  I kind of cheated a little bit on this one, I think the true wine color I'm wearing is my long sleeved t-shirt, but I had this outfit in mind for this day all last week as I was thinking about it.  This sweater is another one of my Goodwill finds.  So between my pink, purple and wine colors, I'm just varying shades of wine.  I'm Merlot and White Zinfandel and Pink Moscato all rolled into one.

Long sleeve shirt - Mossimo, Target
Sweater - thrifted Target stock
Skirt - two birds vintage via b. (a resale shop)
Boots - Target, old
Necklace - S&D 

It's no secret that the Pants Monkey and I are beer people, but we do love a good bottle of wine too.  Especially in the fall and winter months.  I love wine with a good steak.  I love wine with Italian food, especially a good Chianti, yum!  Lately one of our favorite meals has been to take some good cheeses, some crackers, and a little meat or bread and then having a good sharp Chardonnay.  I never used to like Chardonnay but have found lately I like a drier wine.
 

Speaking of good wine and cheese, last week I had the chance to meet up again with lovely Maca from the Spanglish Life and we had wine and a fantastic cheese plate!  We didn't take a picture this time, we were too busy enjoying our conversation!  I was so full of cheese when we were done, but it really was delicious!  I can't wait until the next time her and I meet up!


Finally, I got a close up of my boots today because it's Everybody Everywear today and the theme is boots! I have had these boots a million years.  They're a bit beat up and loved, but I think it adds to their charm.  They are crazy comfortable and they keep me plenty warm on these cold days!  And every girl needs a good pair of tall brown boots right?

  2. All these "wine" colors combined are awesome! The short sleeved sweater is a great GW find and such a pretty color. I am not much of a wine girl. It's Captain and Coke for me :) Heather

  5. Love the boots! I love beer as well, wine is slowly growing on me though! I like a lot of the white ones, and pink wine. I don't like warm red wine though, it is strange to me.

  16. LOVE your layering. I think you and I went for the same idea, only I pulled out the red and you pulled out the pink. Fantastic tonal look. Zinfandel is the only wine I can stand to drink, and only with food. I'm more of a whiskey/bourbon/southern comfort girl than wine or beer and even then I only drink about twice a year at that!

  17. I whined today and kind of felt better, too. I love your darker layer underneath the brighter colors, and of course covet your necklace.

  18. I'm not big into either beer nor wine, but I do enjoy a good chianti classico. I like beaujoulais, too, although I can't spell it, apparently.
