napa/san francisco outfit post: gingham dress, brown wedges

Inspiration - Elizabeth Banks

Love love love this dress. It's a swing/trapeeze shape but belts nicely because of the thin fabric. It's perfect for hot weather and love gingham as a fun summer print.

Second I am IN LOVE with these wedges! Thanks to a reader recommendation I found them at Lord & Taylor and they are a super close knock off to the Stuart Weitzman wedges Kate Middleton always wears.

For our second day in Napa, based on recommendations, we hired a driver. So after breakfast at our hotel and he picked us up and took us around. He gave us great background and information about how wine is made, differences in wineries and the history of the area.

We sort of rambled around without a plan and went to the following places:

napa/san francisco outfit post: blue & white tunic dress

Inspiration - Alessandra Ambrosio

I bought this tunic recently at H&M (can't find it online - boo) and I love how soft and floaty it is. The only problem with it was it was too sheer. I don't own a good full slip but I was able to pull a nude interior layer out of another dress and make it work. Easy casual fun summer look!

Post 2 - Napa/San Francisco trip
We arrived in Napa in the afternoon on our first day. We checked into our hotel in the town of Napa called White House Inn, got freshened up (I changed into this tunic dress from my travel clothes) and then walked into town for a bite to eat. We wanted to try to squeeze something in on our first day so after eating we called an uber to take us to the north side of the valley to Castello di Amorosa which is a really pretty winery with a recreated 13th century Tuscan castle. We wish we'd gotten there earlier to take a tour but we were able to do a tasting and wander around before it was closing.

After all day cross country travel and some wine - we were pretty beat so we headed back to the town of Napa for dinner. (We definitely didn't plan logistics very well this first day - it was a 40 minute drive to the castle each way.) We ate Morimoto sushi restaurant of Iron Chef fame. Yum yum yum. And then it was off to bed to rest up for a full day of wineries in the morning.

napa/san francisco outfit post: military jacket, striped shirt, skinny jeans

Inspiration - Olivia Palermo

Two weeks ago Hubby and I took our first trip to Napa for our anniversary. We spent three days in Napa, a day driving around from Napa to the California coast down to San Francisco and a day in San Francisco before we flew home. It was a great trip and we had a wonderful time. I'm going to share most of what I wore on the trip and my packing list. Hope you enjoy!

This first outfit is what I wore on the plane both to California and on the red-eye back home. It's basically my airport uniform - comfy stretchy jeans, a non-wrinkle shirt and a warm jacket that could be balled up for a pillow. I also had my Longchamp tote with my the whole trip. Normally it just contains the following long flight packing list of items but this trip I had the added bonus of carting around my breast pump & accessories. Mile high pump club! Woot woot!

(Previous jacket love.)
