A few weeks ago the team was excited to get a special invitation from NapaStyle
to be featured in their September catalog.
NapaStyle is a store based out of Yountville dedicated to showcasing the essence of Napa Valley and the uniqueness of living in wine country. It is brought to life by the mind and culinary mastery of Chef Michael Chiarello whose cooking revolves around the simplicity of wine country living. NapaStyle features items from food to cooking accessories and decor that encompass what it means to live in Napa Valley, and we are thrilled to be included as one of those items!
With harvest happening around the valley, these knits and colors pair perfectly for the long, increasingly cooler nights that lay ahead as we celebrate the 2013 harvest season.
It’s that time of year again when the transition from hot summer days of drinking a mojito at the beach are quickly ending, and chilly evenings sitting around a fire pit sipping on an Oktoberfest beer are just around the corner. The thought of having to buy a whole new wardrobe for the change of season excites and daunts many, but knowing how to use a fun summer dress as a fall item will take your fashion sense to another level!
Nothing screams fall fashion more than boots and knits, well maybe flannel but we’ll leave that for another conversation. I love knee high riding boots but it seems like everyone is following that trend, but there are other options people! I always incline for that subtle rocker look without looking like I’m trying to resuscitate bands like “Guns N’ Roses”, so I paired up my dress with some awesome Dr. Martens boots. Now wearing a dress during the fall or winter is torture when your legs and arms are exposed to the chill of the wind so look for some opaque tights to protect your oh so beautiful legs, and a sweater that won’t add unneeded bulk but that will complement the shape of the dress you are wearing. Now the fun part is accessorizing! I am a fan of hats and Our Hands For Hope has the cutest hand knit hat EVER! I added their Rosemary hat to this look to match up with the boots, sprinkling some statement jewelry pieces like this brass cuff, gold rush necklace from Noonday Collection, and some Griffin Sunglasses give my look just the right amount of pizzazz.
