Winesday returned on Saturday night! We haven't had a proper "all the gals" Winesday since our Mrs. Roeper Pool Party last July at Marian's (scroll down here), just a few park gatherings here and there, and not with all of our friends.
Although we didn't put a theme on the pool party this year, I of course went over the top!
In Glamourous Movie Star mode.
I took Monster Vest with me as well. We were lucky in getting a hot day and a warm evening, and didn't experience the usual cold ocean breezes so far from the water.
L photobombed me - Vizzini is not the only camera ham I live with!
He was off to enjoy the first MANday (Musical Appreciation Night) with the guys - I've yet to hear about it, as L got home way later than me, and left to get his second jab today while I was still in bed, sleeping off my aches from Ulti and feeling new ones from swimming/treading water.
- Belt - Fendi, thrifted; last worn here
- Copper earrings - vintage expo
- Amber ring - c. 1996
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
I didn't take a ton of pictures at Winesday - I wanted to enjoy seeing everyone and be in the moment, but I did a few while we still had light.
Cat, Yvonne and I shared a cab out to Marian's (she lives way out of town and at a higher elevation). Our cab driver was fantastic, so we booked him to come and pick us up later.
From the pool area, looking down on the house. Such a nice detail that the side piece of the house also has that barn roof shape.
The barn is across that path to the right. Look at all the giant lavender bushes! They were everywhere, buzzing with fat honeybees.
We didn't do a tour of the house because the inside is not finished, but check out the front door!
We were the first to arrive - that's Yvonne, Cat (in a dress she made, so pretty!) and Marian. The pool-house on the right has a washroom/changing area inside.
This table was groaning with food - cheese, chorizo, dips, chocolate (I think I ate an entire box of Toffifee).
Marian brought Linda and Joanne up (we needed help navigating the gate).
Joanne brought CAKE. She's a professional chef and works at a patisserie in Victoria.
"Take my picture by the pool!" Oh, fashion bloggers - it's always about a picture!
Hooray, more of our dear women have arrived!
Marian's daughter Tiki (prounounced "ticky" - it's a nickname) had to come and see my purple hair.
We hung out and watched the stars come out over our heads, and it was over far too quickly. It was so good to reconnect with some of our women that I haven't seen as frequently over the past 16 months. Winesday is the best. Mental calm is restored.
Uh-oh! I'd better sit on the couch and let him get some cuddle time in! He's missed us over the past few days as our social calendar has begun to fill.
Thank you all so much for stopping by! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
