Napa in Lace

Our first full day in Napa was full of wine tastings. Driving thru the countryside to the vineyards was so enjoyable. Each vineyard was more picturesque than the other. If I wasn’t driving, I was taking tons of pics and videos. We started at one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley, Beringer. It was the perfect first tour and tasting for us!

As part of the tour we were able to pick grapes off the vine and taste them. It was such a cool experience to taste the different grapes and see how the different grapes would create different wines. It also provided for a great place to take pictures. I’m working on a full rundown of all the places we went in Napa Valley. That should be posted next week!

For now, I’m going to just share my outfit for the first day. The weather in Napa had highs of the mid 70s the whole time we were there and this was the warmest day. I was inspired by the wine and my color palette reflected that. I bought this dress before I even knew I was going to Napa and it ended up being the perfect dress for wine tasting.

Pictures don’t do justice to the pretty lace detail. Lace is again a big trend for Fall. I like the spin on the lace being burgundy instead of your typical white lace. Another plus size to the color is that it wouldn’t matter if I spilled any of the wine! Extra bonus! J The drop waist shape on this dress is something I don’t wear a lot but is becoming a favorite of mine. The shape is so flattering without having to be tight. I also love the flounce on the skirt! I love this one and this tie neck version too!

I initially intended to wear booties with this dress but since the temps were a little warmer than I expected I went with my flat sandals. I love how this dress can be worn with both! When the temps do fall further, I can add booties and even tights!
