I recently started to have an obsession with Groupon. I think it’s such a great way to find things to do and places to eat at a fraction of the price! A few weeks ago, we stumbled upon a Groupon for a tour of and wine-tasting at Sand Castle Winery up in Bucks County. Last year, Pritom’s friend bought a bottle of their Alpine Spice wine which we tried and loved! Please know I know nothing about wines. I either love the taste, or I don’t. Seeing as I loved what I tried a year ago, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the winery and get us a few bottles of this amazing wine, so off we went! I can’t imagine how beautiful the drive must be in the fall. We’re definitely thinking of taking our parents here when they visit in a couple of months!

Again, I’m nowhere close to being a wine connoisseur, but boy – that Alpine Spice tasted just as wonderful as it did when we tried it a year ago. It’s such a perfect wine for the fall (wait – did I mention you can warm it?), but keep it chilled and it’ll be just as perfect for this hot weather!

As for what I wore, if you’ve known me all my life, you’ll know I’m absolutely crazy about off-the-shoulder anything. I wore off-the-shoulder to my middle and high school dances, for my graduation prom, and for my wedding. Needless to say, I was beyond ecstatic when it came back in style! I think a visit to a winery is such a great excuse to throw on an off-the-shoulder number with bell sleeves because it’s such a sophisticated look that, in my eyes, never gets old. Pair it with a choker or a collar necklace like this piece that I wore, and you’ve got yourself a classic yet sexy look! I purchased this VAVA by Joy Han dress back in the spring. It is no longer available, but definitely check out this one that is really similar, and in a beautiful shade of peach! My handbag is still available at Nordstrom, and comes in black as well. I’ve used this purse on multiple occasions, so I can definitely vouch for its versatility. DSC_0860  DSC_0861DSC_0871

I’ll be back in a few days to talk about my favorite Italian restaurant here in Philly. Until then, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
