This past weekend I went wine touring in Napa.  I wore my new pink dress from Tobi and although the shoulders kept falling down and it showed off my behind if I bent over even slightly, it was totally worth it.

We checked out a few different wineries.  Our first stop was Cline, which was an amazing winery.  We tried a few white wines and a few red.  I ended up buying their two of their reds, one of which was a cool climate Syrah that was peppery, smokey, and full-bodied…just how I like it!

Next stop was lunch and then tasting at Cornerstone and Keating wines.  At Keating we tried a ton of reds, took some pics, and enjoyed the sun shining on that beautiful Saturday.  Afterwards we spent some time roaming around Sonoma plaza.  We happened to stumble upon the coolest champagne tasting bar called Sigh.  Their main champagne tasting flight was amazing, and if we had more time I would have bought the second bottle we tried!  Did you hear that there was a study stating that drinking champagne can help fight against Alzheimers and Dementia?  Bring on the flutes!

There’s nothing better than a day filled with friends, wine, champagne, and sunshine.

Love,

J. Molly

Hot Spring Trend Alert: The Midi

This spring you’ll have to find a different way to show off your legs because we’re all going more conservative in professional and sophisticated knee-length dresses.  Whether you’re going on a date, going to a party, going ou for brunch, going wine touring in Napa, or going to work, there are midi dresses for each of these occasions.

For more casual events try a midi that has some sort of pattern like stripes or florals, and goes into a soft, flared skirt.  If you want to wear one to work, opt for one that hugs the body without being too tight or too flared, and has 3-quarter length or long sleeves.  If you’ve got a brunch or day-trip to Napa planned, wear a midi in a soft neutral or pastel color like beige, violet, light pink, light blue, etcetera.  Opt for one that has some structural details like a visible zipper, collar, or belted waist.

Want to get a little more bold? Gucci’s Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection featured this bright orange midi.

Got a party on the agenda? You could go fiery hot in a bold red or orange midi, or go for a sizzling slinky blue or teal body-con bandage dress.

For a classy and sexy evening look, you’ll be a knockout in a black midi that has sheer mesh sleeves, hot cutouts, and a low-cut back.

What’s your favorite midi style?!
