Happy New Year! It’s been such a busy holiday season from spending a week in Vegas with my family to spending a week in San Francisco to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I’ve been to the Bay Area many times, but I’ve never had the chance to go to Napa Valley. I’m so happy I finally did – it’s so breathtaking! I can only imagine how prettier it looks like during Spring and Summer. I’ll definitely have to take another trip back!
We went to Napa the day before New Year’s Eve and let me tell you about the weather – it was freezing cold (in the 40s)! I was bundled up in my warmest winter jacket (which you can see in some of the pictures). I actually got this jacket from AMAZON last year and it’s been one of my go-to jackets for the winter. It keeps you really insulated and protects you from the cold, and it’s filled with duck down. It comes in three different colors – olive green, black, and beige. I love it so much that I’m thinking about getting the olive color one for next winter! There’s plenty of room when you want to dress in layers and it’s true-to-size, too! If you’ve been looking for a winter jacket, you can shop it HERE!
I’ve been loving burgundy colors lately, so I couldn’t help but pair an oversized turtleneck sweater from COTTON ON with these over-the-knee boots from CHOIES. I got so lucky with the sale that Cotton On was having and I got the sweater for only $20 (shop it in black HERE). I can’t tell you enough how much I love these OTKs – I pretty much wore them during the whole trip! They look great with everything and the pop of color makes such a statement – get ready for all of the compliments that you’ll get! If you’ve been looking for a pair of OTKs, I’d definitely go for this one – you don’t have to splurge as much, they’re super comfy, and they’re on sale right now for only $84 (plus free shipping, view it HERE) – great deal right?! For the rest of the look, I went ahead with black pants to keep it simple and topped the look off with one of my favorite Fedora hats from FOREVER 21. Leather-strap watches are perfect for casual days. The one I’m wearing is from FOSSIL – it’s rose gold and I love the chainlike hardware (view HERE). Last but not least, my favorite accessory of all is the Jetsetter Convertible Backpack from HENRI BENDEL. Traveling with it was such a breeze! All I had to do was change the straps and make into a backpack – the mini version is on sale right now for 50% off – get yours HERE.
If you’re ever in Napa, stop by Beringer Estates (where these pictures were taken), Castello di Amorosa – “Castle of Love” for wine tasting, and of course the Robert Mondavi vineyard (pick up a box of their dark chocolate truffles infused with red wine).
Thanks so much taking the time to read, darlings! I hope you enjoyed the post and the pictures. Wishing all of you a very prosperous 2016 filled with plenty of success and joy. This is OUR year and OUR time to shine!
Do what you love with style, XO
