Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I mentioned in my last post that I was attending a Wine Country influencers and bloggers brunch in Napa Valley on Sunday. It was such a blast! I got to see a couple of my longtime friends like Malia of Style by Malia and met several women I am happy to call new friends.
It was another hot, hot day here so I wore my new red ruffled dress to the brunch and wine tasting. It’s midi length with a big ruffle around the bottom and smaller ruffles at the neck, bodice and sleeves.
I feel so feminine in this dress! It has a fitted elastic waist with a tie belt, a wide ruffle around the bottom and ruffle detail around the neck and shoulders. It also has a lining – just to the knees so it’s not too constricting or heavy – and two side pockets! I love it so much, I bought it in black too. At just under $70, I felt okay about adding another.
I wore it with a red leather choker and cognac sandals.
Our Wine Country Bloggers Who Brunch group met at Lucy Restaurant and Bar at Bardessono Hotel in Yountville.
We mingled, took photos of everything – as bloggers are known to do – then checked out our darling goodie bags. The bags were filled with fantastic gifts which I will post a photo of on Instagram soon.
After we ordered our brunch entrees, we were taken on a guided tour of the property at Bardessono. By the time we came back, our entrees were ready to be served. I had the shrimp with cheese grits. It was outstanding! The shrimp was cooked to perfection and the grits were creamy and with just the right texture.
What a fun Sunday! I love connecting with fellow bloggers. We are looking forward to getting the group together again for future events around Wine Country.
A big thank you to Mallory at Vine Living and Katie Crenshaw for putting this all together and to our sponsors which include Lucy Restaurant at Bardessono, Silver Trident Winery, JCB Collection, Olive and Poppy, Bouchon Bakery, Boho Lifestyle, Hoopes Vineyard and Sisters Napa Valley.
