Ever since I visited Napa last fall, I have been counting the days until I could go back.
Finally, the time has come! T-minus one day and counting til I’m back in wine country, glass in hand.
It sounds funny, but to this Wisconsin girl living in California, Napa is truly the best of both these worlds.
Gourmet food, laid-back style, and enviable weather? Total California.
Winding roads, beautiful countryside, and friendly people that eat a lot of cheese AND do a lot of drinking? Wisconsin all the way.
So what’s on my Napa packing list? It’ll be hot, hot, hot this weekend in Napa, so I’m packing almost excluuuuusively maxi dresses which is my kinda packing list.
Every summer, I buy a new maxi dress which I end up wearing allllll summer long – BBQs, beach trips, travel, weekend errands – you name it. Here’s this year’s purchase which I’m planning to wear on Saturday while we spend the day wine tasting, lunching, and hanging out poolside in the evening.
I’m also going to throw in two Joie maxi dresses that I bought earlier this year for my Hawaii trip (here and here), and yet a fourth maxi that I brought with me to Denver last year. I guess each of these dresses has quite the travel resume by now!
Four days, four dresses. They’ll be perfect for daytime wine tasting AND evening dinners so I can keep my packing light (to save room for WINE, der).
Add a few sandals and a swimsuit, and I think I’m all set. For more details, you can read all about my weekend in this post.
I’ll be sharing more about my trip on Instagram over the weekend if you’d like to follow along!
