travel style: napa

my parents are going to napa in early october with friends, and they have a fabulous trip full of amazing food and wine planned. i can barely talk about it, because i have always wanted to explore wine country!
to ease my jealousy, my mom asked me to brainstorm some outfits for her trip that would pack and wear well. bearing in mind that they will be traipsing through vineyards and drinking a lot of vino, along with changing hotels three times, i am aiming for pieces that can be reworn on other days, and that can transition from day to night. here is one option for daytime!

october means layering, and i love how warm silk shirts can be while being light at the same time. the vest is the perfect thing to throw on for a little extra insulation if the morning is chilly, or for when the sun starts to go down. the pants shown are the minnie from j.crew, but despite claims that "they look great on everyone" i have found that they do NOT look great on me. banana republic has a similar cropped skinny pant that works much better for my body type and it comes in a variety of colors! i chose patent flats, since you can wipe them off easily if you encounter mud or dirt, and minimalist jewelry with a utilitarian tote (search your local tj maxx and marshalls for the cynthia rowley one pictured above - i scored one in red and it is the perfect size!)

lastly, how cute is that silk scarf?
