Day 212: Red Wine Day Two

Last night was ‘game night’ at one of our friends’ houses. We try to get together every Tuesday for a strategy-based game: last night we played Ticket to Ride and I loved it! I also loved the red wine . Okay, maybe I loved the red wine a little more. So much so that I skipped barre this morning – oops! I guess our love wasn’t reciprocal.

Today I was filled uninspired and boring. On the way to drop off Stormy at puppy day care, I saw two women who layered perfectly with some gorgeous vests. These days when I feel a bit frumpy are the hardest to not shop. I made a vow to play with more layering the rest of this week (which won’t be hard when L and I head up to Boston this weekend!). Otherwise, I do love this shirt that L’s mother gave me for my birthday!

Day 151: Old-aged Wino

Apparently according this test here, my wine taste age is 31. I’m going to pretend that means I’m sophisticated, not that I enjoy wine wayyy too much. My fascination with wine started when I went to school in the Finger Lakes region in New York and I haven’t looked back since!

Day 151: Winc

To manage my love of wine, I’ve been using Winc (or as they used to be known Club W) for almost two years now. Winc is a wine club that has relatively inexpensive wine ($13-$20) that will make you feel pretty darn ritzy.

Day 151: Winc

They have a little bit of everything – from a syrupy sweet white for L to a complex cab for LB. I’ve had so much fun getting a better understanding of what I do and don’t like.

Today was my wine delivery day, which makes this Friday 100% better. How can you not be excited about wine and weekends? Because I love trying a little bit of everything, I have reds, whites, roses, and even some bubbly in this shipment. L thinks that it’s completely rational to only need a few bottles of wine per month, but I just can’t get on the same page as him! What if we have steak one night and pork chops the next night? We need to pop open another bottle!

Day 151: Winc

For the past two years, Winc has helped me figure out that my favorite wine in the world in a Chenin Blanc and that sparkling, dry reds are so incredibly fun. If you’re looking to expand your wine taste, you should definitely check them out! Excuse me while I celebrate this weekend with one of my faves WKND sparkling.

As far as outfits go, today I wanted to be effortlessly Friday chic. This morning I had a meeting with an agency in downtown Atlanta and a doctors appointment with my rheumatologist at 3pm, so I got to work from home between the two. Not going to lie, I absolutely LOVE working from home because I can get so much done while snack on SO MUCH food. It’s a win-win in my book.

Sound off, what’s your go-to wine?
