napa/san francisco outfit post: black racer back midi dress

Inspiration - Banana Republic

I wore this dress on multiple occasions to dinner on our trip. It's a great lightweight non-wrinkle fabric that still looked good after being balled in a suitcase. I wore my brown wedges with it because I didn't bring any other heel options and just decided to embrace mixing black & brown. (Weirdly didn't get any pictures wearing it - or at least any decent ones that aren't just my head and a bit of the top of the dress.)

napa/san francisco outfit post: white portofino shirt, navy shorts

Inspiration - Mila Kunis

This is one of my favorite summer uniforms. A comfy pair of shorts with a portofino shirt. I feel cuter & more 'outfit-y' when my shirt has a collar and cuffed sleeves then when I just am wearing a tanktop with my shorts. (I wanted to wear my cobalt pendant necklace with this outfit but turned out it was hidden in the toe of the boots I packed & never wore.)

On the second morning we walked downtown to explore for a bit and grab some breakfast. We walked along a really pretty riverwalk and checked out the foodie Oxbow Market.

napa/san francisco outfit post: striped chambray dress, white cardigan, brown wedges

Inspiration - Anna Paquin

I found this dress in the clearance section at Loft. (50% off online right now!) And even though I have a decent number of stripes & dresses in my closet - my large nursing chest is still preventing me from wearing most of them - so I totally 'needed' this one for our trip! Or so I told myself. :)

For our third day in Napa we walked around downtown in the morning (outfit tomorrow) and then used the same driver again to explore the wider area and do more tastings. My uncle is a wine distributor and made us an appointment in Sonoma in the afternoon so we tasted our way from Napa over to the appointment.

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:
