If you live on the East Coast going to Napa for the weekend is probably not going to be your idea of a weekend getaway. I mean it involves at least 5-6 hours on a plane each way. Not how I would want to spend my weekend. However if you have a long weekend coming up or if you live on the West Coast spending the weekend in Napa is my idea of paradise. I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend in San Francisco with friends and took a day trip to Napa. It was my first time and I loved every moment of it. Our first stop was Domaine Chandon. I am not sure if having champagne for breakfast is good or bad but I think it was a great way to start off the day. Domaine Chandon does both still and sparkling wines. I only did the tasting for the sparkling and it was amazing. I highly recommend the Rose. After getting our fill we moved on to our next stop which is by far my favorite, Hall Rutherford. We did a private cave tasting there and it was the most amazing experience. Not only are the grounds amazing (they sit up high so you have an amazing view of Napa Valley) but the wines are to die for. I will definitely be going back. Our last stop was Del Dotto. By this point we had a lot to drink so it was a bit of a blur but I did remind how amazing the grounds were. Just another beautiful stop on the wine trail.
Let's talk about what I wore. The dress was actually a hand me down that I pretty much wore to death this whole entire summer. I love it. Very comfy and it was free. Definitely on budget. The shoes are from Ralph Lauren and I got them on sale at one of my favorite spots in SF called Jeremy's for only $60 bucks. My sweater is a cashmere blend from Banana Republic and I thrifted it for $10. So the grand total of my outfit was only $70 bucks. Not too bad if you ask me.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. I will be spending time with family so posting on the blog will continue to be light. In the meantime the pics I am sharing today are a #TBT from two years ago. To this day I still own all the pieces in this post. The dress is from Asos and I bought it on sale for about $20 bucks. This specific dress is no longer available however Asos has a ton of dresses on clearance now and it will only get better during their after Christmas sales so be sure to check them out. Happy Holidays everyone and be sure to following me on Instagram to see what I am up to between posts.
Here are some options that are currently on sale at Asos right now.
This season cozy chunky knits are really in which means that this fashion hoarder was really excited to find that I had a few pieces stashed away from winters past. For a brisk Saturday in San Francisco I decided to bring out my cozy knit and pair it with a pair of leopard print flats for a cozy and casual look. We started out a day at the Ferry Building and made our way on foot up Embarcadero until we ended in Ghiradelli Square. When the sun is out in SF you definitely have to take advantage. By the way this is proof that I do not always wear heels. What weekend trend are you loving this season?

It's my birthday. Another year to look back upon. I am spending the week on the beach getting some much needed R & R and also fitting in a little fun in the sun. I will be back next week with outfit posts and reviews on the resort I am currently staying at. Now back to my celebration I go. In the meantime follow me on instagram where I will be posting my OOTD and other highlights of my trip.
Today's post it dedicated to my husband and man behind the camera. Happy 21st Birthday Jason. Wishing you many more.
