In case you missed the approximate 87 times I’ve mentioned on Instagram that I’m going to Napa soon, here’s your sign haha. The annual trip to the valley is upon us and I’m getting so excited! My husband and I usually travel a ton, we even found several ways to enjoy domestic trips in 2020, but 2021 has been so much slower with travel due to me starting my new job and having a mandatory 90 day no travel period. Finally, my 90 days have come to an end and it’s time to put those PTO requests in! Thankfully this comes at exactly a year to the date of our last trip to Napa and it’s time to go again!
In preparation for the trip, I recently laid out all of the clothes I want to take and figured I’d make a packing guide for anyone else out there who might be planning a trip to wine country or who might just need some inspiration for wine tasting outfits in general, no matter where you’re tasting. I wanted to get a jump on this, too, because inevitably a few of these pieces will sell out before I have a chance to post them. I know how annoying it can be when a blogger you follow posts a lot of items that you go to purchase only to find that it’s already sold out. So in anticipation of that situation, I wanted to proactively post these pieces and how I plan on styling them in advance!
When I travel, I generally pack two outfits per day; an outfit I want to wear during the day and then a separate outfit for when the day is done and it’s time to clean up, reset and go out for dinner. You’ll see that this blog post will have two outfits per day of my trip. Each day will be followed by the links to each item so you can easily shop everything you see! Some of the items are also going to be repeated. The more I travel, the more I’m beginning to truly appreciate a minimal approach. I used to be the pack-absolutely-everything-just-incase girl, but honestly now I plan everything down to the details and this way it allows me to strategically choose pieces I can mix and match and utilize more than once on the trip.
With all of that being said, I hope you enjoy this guide of what I typically shop for and wear on a trip to my beloved Napa Valley! Happy shopping!
I can’t wait to share the trip with you guys! If you’re interested in reading the prior two Napa travel guides I’ve written check out this and this!
Let me know if you wind up adding any of the pieces here to your cart!
