Globe-Trotter Suitcase

Globe-Trotter Suitcase, J. Crew

I’m counting the days ’til next week’s trip to Napa and can hardly wait for the breathtaking views, gorgeous vineyards, & culinary adventures.  At least that’s how I imagine it… since it’s my first trip to Northern Cali, it’s time to start planning my getaway wardrobe.

Theory Shirt & MartinOsa ScarfI’m thinking neutral colors, easy-to-pack jersey, and light scarves to drape over dresses on chilly evenings.  This white button-down & jeans combo is my no-fail travel outfit: comfortable for the plane ride & chic enough to wear to dinner at our destination. Ombre scarf, GapLarissa shirt, Theory.

Club Monaco Shirtdress & GlassesThis breezy & sophisticated shirtdress would be perfect for touring wineries and lunching in the vineyard.  A pair of tortoiseshell glasses gives a dose of instant glam.  Shirtdress, Club Monaco.

Stuart Weitzman Alex Espadrille WedgesWedges are practically my uniform during the summer months due to their chic-meets-comfy versatility.  Natural fibers infuse a dose of earthiness, and these go equally well with shorts and dresses.  Alex Espadrille Wedge, Stuart Weitzman.

Fedoras

If I’m feeling a bit daring, I’ll throw on a fedora.  Amazing how a hat can carry the simplest outfit into serious fashionista territory.  Fedora, Tory Burch.

Tory Burch Bag

A classic leather tote is roomy enough to hold essentials for an entire day of sightseeing.  This goes-with-everything bag feels so luxurious, and is sure to become a favorite for years to come. Tote, Tory Burch.

Gwen Dress

We’ll end our adventure in San Francisco, so I’ll want to turn up the volume for a festive night on the town.  Okay, fine: maybe this knockout dress is a tad over-the-top for California… but a girl can dream, can’t she? Gwen Dress, J. Crew.

    The SF/Napa/NorCal style is remarkably similar to Austin – except that it’s 30° cooler across the board.

    Thanks for the Italian honeymoon tips! The hotel you recommended in Capri looks incredible. You will LOVE Napa! I’ve been there several times and it is very similiar to the European countryside. You must go to Auberge de Solieil and at the least have a drink and watch the sunset on the balcony. Enjoy!
