Where the Vine Meets the Sunshine

Back in October my significant other and I took a sudden getaway to Napa Valley. Calling it relaxing doesn't even begin to touch upon the therapeutic nature of Napa. We had a wonderful time.

Our second day there we decided to explore the vineyards and wine cellars on our hotel grounds. The weather was blissfully warm and we were in wine-land after all so I slipped into a purple ruffle dress from Forever 21. Light and breezy. I love the ruffle down the front; makes it playful. I paired the dress with a pair of Nine West espadrilles wedges. I wanted to age the look a bit by wearing brown on my feet. A more colorful choice of shoe would have made the outfit too youthful. We also had dinner plans later that evening so I wanted the look to easily transition into Napa Valley nighttime. I added a few edgy accessories (Italian horn necklace from F21 and Anne Klein studded watch) and we were off to explore in the sunshine!

Day 2 to come tomorrow.

I must admit, looking at these pictures is making me pretty nostalgic. Luckily we took a few bottles of our favorites home with us. Time to sip sweetness and peruse the blogosphere.

Good night,
