60 Days of Rosé at Amali Restaurant

One of the things I’ll miss about summer? Savoring plenty of thirst-quenching pink wine.

Sure, you can enjoy a glass of rosé anytime, but there’s something absolutely magical about drinking this  ice-cold treat that’s as sparkling as the midnight sky in the French countryside. Wonderfully refreshing, carefree, and easy on the tastebuds, rosé is a wine for the people, especially sun-worshippers.

It’s pure bliss.

I was invited to attend the “60 Days of Rosé” celebration at Upper East Side-based Mediterranean restaurant Amali, where they honored two months of summer with some of the season’s most delectable wines.  For their guests, Amali provided rosé ice pops, a keg of Paumanok Vineyard Rosé Wine, cocktails, and Italian hot sausage sandwiches.

It was wonderful.

For the occasion, I wore this thrifted eggplant-hued Alice and Olivia silk dress with a sheer sleeve.

Truthfully, I’m not sure from which collection this Alice and Olivia dress is from and it seems to no longer be available. But if you’re loving this rich, succulent shade of purple for a dress, I have a few recommendations.

I adore this wrap dress for $114 by Pinup Girl Clothing, which is super comfortable and will easily transform any lady into a pinup. For a plunging neckline that’s perfect for date night, I’m really into the lacy That’s My Gala Dress for $64.99 by ModCloth. And because I’m seriously into kimonos lately, I’ve been eyeing this head-turning stunner of a piece for $65.99, also by ModCloth. Isn’t there a holiday coming up?

For a pop of color, I added a turquoise necklace from H&M. It’s now sold out, but you can get this braided statement turquoise necklace for $30 by Etsy seller Helen’s Collection.

Summer is almost over, so enjoy that coup nearly overflowing with the sweet stuff before you enjoy it again…in the fall.
