Floral Dress with Black Turtleneck and Faux Leather Jacket & Wine Club Release Party at Murrieta's Well

I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts about wearing sweaters over dresses and thereby creating a whole new look. That gave me the idea to wear my black turtleneck over my dark floral dress from H&M.

My faux black leather moto jacket from Metrostyle worked well with the outfit. I wore comfortable boots and added my big faux pearl necklace.

I wore the outfit to our wine club release and pick-up party at Murrieta’s Well in Livermore. It was also an opportunity for Andy and me to go on a date, something we hadn’t done in many months.

We were first introduced to Murrieta’s Well wines about 12 years ago when we tasted them at our friends’ house. But we didn’t join the wine club until late last year as a gift to ourselves instead of birthday and Christmas gifts. I love the idea that each pick up party is a built-in date, especially since we are really bad about making time for dates. Plus, we can visit the winery for free tastings throughout the year.

Murrieta’s Well is not only a great winery because of their delicious wines but also because the space is so nice. There are two tasting areas as well as an exclusive area for wine club members. And during wine club release parties, the winery is closed to the public, so you get to enjoy the entire property.

Luckily, on the day of the release party, the rain took a break and we got to enjoy the outside seating area. It was just warm enough to hang out outside, especially once we moved to a sunny spot.

There are six wines served during the release party, and five of them are paired with an appetizer.

So glad we got to spend some quality time together and enjoy some good wine and delicious food.

Questions: Do you ever wear a sweater over a dress? What was the last date you went on?

Be well,
