Where the Vine Meets the Sunshine: Part 2

Our third day in Napa was just as blissful as the first two. We headed out into the sunshine early without any plans at all. We knew we wanted to walk around a massive vineyard, but we didn't know which one. Our plan was to drive around until we spotted something we couldn't resist. (Only in Napa is this kind of activity successful!) What we ended up stumbling upon was a little slice of heaven; or maybe the Garden of Eden. The latter paints a far better picture. It was a HUGE vineyard, potentially never-ending. The hills rolled on for as far as the eye could see. As we hiked walked we came across at least four massive ponds and the sun was shining everywhere you looked.

Knowing that we were going to spend most of the day walking around outside, I opted for an orange sundress from Forever 21. I knew the light fabric would be perfect at keeping me cool throughout the day. I wrapped a brown leather belt around the dress and slipped on my Steven by Steve Madden brown leather sandals. These are my absolute favorite sandals - padded foot-bed, soft brown leather, and polished gold hardware right in the center. I grabbed my Louis Vuitton speedy and we were out to explore wine country once more.

Dress: F21 / Sandals: Steve Madden / Bag: Louis Vuitton / Belt: F21

Earlier in the summer, my charming significant other bought these Hermes earrings while he was visiting Paris. He gave them to me on my birthday shortly after. He has such a golden heart. I put them on with this dress because they coordinated perfectly but in reality I just wanted to see him smile. 

It seems like we'll be heading to the west coast for yet another mini-excursion at the beginning of next month. I think my handsome partner is antsy to fly again.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

'Til next time,
