San Francisco #2

A road trip of the most glorious kind happened yesterday. 

San Francisco is awesome for many reasons. One of them being that just little over an hour and you are in the wine country and I have always wanted to visit the wine country. We planned to hit up a few tastings but also visit some of the cool small towns. First stop for lunch was the city of Sonoma. We did a little stroll in the charming city center which looks like straight out of a western movie and ended up at The Girl and The Fig restaurant. I had my first generous portion of beautiful red wine and and a brie burger that was to die for.

 Wardrobe wise I improvised my favorite Topshop work dress into a skirt and paired it with the Hangry tshirt and my Michael Kors leather jacket. I do think this would look pretty cute with this similar pastel tulle skirt also and I find this and this leather jacket on Asos rather awesome if you wish to recreate.
After eating we drove to a few wineries-one of my favorites being Gloria Ferrer with beautiful terrace over looking the fields of grapes and its chilled glasses of the Sonoma Bru.  

I must say when I retire I want to do nothing else but stare into the horizon and taste wine all day long. It was glorious! And its totally acceptable pastime for an afternoon if you are visiting the wine country so I didn't even feel bad.

We had time for one more stop before heading back to San Fran so we opted for Yountville in Napa County. This being known as the "culinary capital of Napa Valley" was the perfect place for late afternoon strolls and checking out chocolateries and bakeries. As much as I would love to eat all the things forever and ever, there is a limit unfortunately so I choose to utilize the last stomach space for some Bouchon coffee and giant salted caramel macaroon. OMG! Both were amazing! I wish I could have tried more things but I was in a rather deep food coma by the end of this day so had to stop.

I highly recommend stopping by Yountville if you are in Napa we loved the town.

Oh yes one last thing has to get a shout out is my new Miu Miu Noir sunglasses because (enter thousands of heart emojis)..

Today I went a little place we all know and love and spent 3,5h looking around on my own. Can you guess where? Yes I did spend that long in Sephora. Time flies when you are having fun. I shall revert back with a little haul post ASAP.
