A Weekend of Wine & Fashion

The 7th Annual 30A Wine Festival was an amazing event at Alys Beach!  The weather thankfully cooperated and it was a beautiful weekend filled with wine, spirits, food, fashion & beautiful people!  It is always a special event, especially to me, because of the beneficiary, Children's Volunteer Health Network.  I have been involved with this wonderful local nonprofit organization for many years.  It is heartwarming to see so many locals and out of towners support them and their cause to provide access to health services for children in Walton & Okaloosa counties in Florida. 

The fashion at the event is always on point, and I felt so perfectly dressed in everything I was wearing from The Alys Shoppe.  It was the perfect place to find beautiful pieces for the entire weekend of festivities!  

I am sharing the highlights below from this fabulous fashion and wine filled weekend.  Enjoy!

Lastly, Sunday, February 25th was Rosè and Croquet in the afternoon.  This is such a classic, chic & stylish event.  Everyone wore shades of white (the traditional color for croquet) and enjoyed a delicious brunch accompanied by rosè, champagne and creative cocktails . 

 My entire outfit is from  Alys Shoppe  (including my hubby's hat too)
