Girls Weekend In Napa




Today, I'm finally getting around to sharing my fun little girls weekend in Napa.  This was my first time being in the area, and let me tell you, it completely won me over!  The vino, farm-fresh food, sophisticated yet laid-back wineries, and gorgeous rolling scenery made for the absolute perfect weekend.

Let's get started....




We stayed at the cutest little Bed & Breakfast in Napa called The Inn On First.  This was my first time staying at a B&B and it set the bar pretty high!  The owners were so friendly & accommodating and I would definitely recommend this little budget friendly gem if you're looking to stay in Napa.


Our B&B was just a few blocks from downtown Napa so we walked everywhere.


Out to dinner on the first night wearing: Torn by Ronny Kobo dress //  J.Crew denim jacket //  Jimmy Choo heels {old}
 

The next morning, I was still on East Coast time and found myself wide awake at 4 a.m.  Instead of just laying in bed, I grabbed my camera and walked into town to take some early morning photos.....


Each morning, the B&B prepared the most scrumptious breakfast for us which was served in their garden.


A grown up version of a pop tart!


Getting started bright & early!  Wearing: DVF Blouse {which my dry cleaner has since LOST booo!} //  My FAVE Joe's Jeans cut offs //  Valentino Cage Sandals //  Clare V. Clutch



The first winery that we hit up was Artesa which had amazing views of the surrounding area.


Love these girls!  My friend, Andrea {left} and I have been friends since we were 15.  I met Irina {center} through Andrea and her & I just clicked instantly....wish she lived closer to me!  Lucy {right}, is a new friend and is just the sweetest!


The next spot we hit up after Artesa Winery was Paraduxx.  This was my absolute favorite part of the weekend!  The grounds were stunning; straight out of a magazine!




It was such a relaxing experience at Paraduxx, and the service was awesome.  Definitely recommend this spot but make sure to reserve in advance.


Girls weekends are truly good for the soul.


Next on our agenda was lunch at Farmstead in St. Helena which was the cutest little spot!



The food was off the charts good, and I'm still day dreaming about that indulgent veggie risotto and brick cooked chicken.



We originally had one other winery that we planned on visiting, but after several hours of wine tasting combined with that indulgent lunch, we needed a siesta lol!


I wish that we would have had one more full day to spend exploring the area, but due to all of our various schedules this was what we had to work with.  Sadly, it was time to say our goodbyes and head home :( 


Airport style!  I always travel with my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM.  It really is a bottomless pit, perfect for traveling!


The weekend ended up being an absolute success and I can't wait to visit Napa Valley again!


Thanks so much for stopping  xx
