Summer’s Still Fair Game + a winner!

Summer? Still? Really? I see you shaking your head, trying to tell me you’re done with all that mess. You’ve already lined up your layers, all in fall colors and have your eye on anything cuddly, right?! Summer? You’ve never heard of it. Well, just press the pause button on that feeling for a little while longer. I get that “grass is always greener” feeling but I’m not done with summer just yet, especially since San Francisco never really had one to begin with. Napa, on the other hand is a perfect getaway when we “city folk” are looking for a piece of sunshine.

Mr. T and I decided to chase some sun and headed to Napa for my birthday weekend. We had a great time enjoying local libations, good eats and of course quality time together. One of the things I love most about travel, whether near or far are the unexpected possibilities. It’s an adventure! Much like personal style, I have a general idea of things I want to try but I’m drawn to life’s happy accidents, style related or otherwise. It just so happened the country fair was in town so off we strolled in search of fried dough and stuffed animals. I realize we may be the only people who come to Napa and decide to do this but…

Summer style is generally more relaxed with California leading the laid back pack almost every day. This time I followed suit wearing this pretty printed blouse that’s light and airy. It kept me cool in the heat along with these neutral patterned shorts that I don’t get to wear often enough. My jewelry was fairly minimal (for me) but donning this lion necklace was a must. It was my birthday weekend  after all and this  Leo was showing pride in her pride. What do you like to wear on little summer getaways? Do you keep to a strict schedule or wander off like me when something catches your eye?

Full on fall weather will be here soon enough and you’ll be asking yourself where all the warm sunny days went. So I implore you to enjoy the unexpected moments, bask in the proverbial sun and wander away from the structure of life to find a few surprises. Tap into the fun things you loved as a child. Like me, you may find yourself thinking summer’s still fair game.
