This week’s featured item is a STAPLE and is this great Marc Jacob’s bucket bag. I was SO excited when I purchased this purse and have gotten so much use out of it already. Not only are bucket bags deceivingly spacious but add some dimension to any outfit you have on.
We shot this look at Sterling Vineyards up in Calistoga, Ca. Sterling is known for their tram that takes you up to their tasting rooms and gives you a nice view of the valley. Although the sights of surrounding vineyards is very pretty, our experience here was pretty average. There are many other wineries I would recommend before Sterling (and it’s about 15 degrees warmer than Napa-we were melting!).
This day of shooting landed on my 1 year wedding anniversary so my husband and I decided to bop around the valley and be tourists for a day. These amazing Kate Spade platforms were my wedding shoes so I thought it only appropriate to wear a year later. Although these floral heels are quite colorful and busy, their print compliments the pattern of the shorts nicely. Because my top and blazer are so simple, a little busy print in my shorts and shoes adds some intrigue to the outfit.
Although I quickly ditched my blazer when arriving to Calistoga, it’s lightweight linen material is perfect for summer days and nights. The crisp color of the top and blazer make it extremely versatile and can be paired with a loose shorts or tailored pants for work.
Quick note: Fiorello’s ice cream pictured above is AMAZING. If you can get your hands on some, you can thank me later 😉
