If these pants look familiar, it’s because I also wore them in my previous outfit post, which was taken on the same trip to Sonoma as these photos. What can I say, with a baby in my life, I’m not getting out all that much these days! And also because of the little missy, I wanted for once in my life to not overpack since I also had to pack for her. And I pretty much succeeded! As you can see, I got double duty out of the pants and shoes. Hopefully no one noticed

The husband and I went to visit some friends in Geyserville this weekend, and on the way up we thought we’d maybe stop at a winery. We did not realize it was “Barrel-Tasting Weekend,” and we didn’t really know what that meant. But we found out! It meant copious wine tasting and drunk loud people. So we skipped the winery idea and headed straight to our friend’s blissful home WAY out in the hills. Very quiet. Very lovely. But not before snapping this photo in which I’m wearing a sweater, jeans, plaid button-up shirt, and suede booties ALL from Madewell. Embarrassing? I didn’t plan it! The bag, at least, is different: from American Apparel. Oh! And the sunglasses are vintage. Anyway, we ended up sleeping over at our friends’ place, so I wore the same thing the next day too. Luckily Madewell makes a very good weekend outfit.
If you would also like a perfect day in Northern California wine country, might we suggest you skip the tourist insanity of Napa and head straight north on the 101 towards Sonoma County? Exit on Dry Creek Road and make your first stop the Dry Creek General Store.
