Wine Country

Took a little trip up north to Napa for some wine tasting on Friday with bf & his family. Our first stop was V. Sattui where we shopped their large selection of wine, cheese and charcuterie. We dined on the winery's premises at one of their rustic picnic tables while we enjoyed the lovely scenic views and beautiful weather. We made a couple of more quick stops at some other nearby wineries for more tasting and made our last stop at the Hess Collection to view their current modern art exhibit.

 
Wearing: 
DIY Dress. (similar here & here). 
This was a super easy dress to make because it's basically a very long tank top with a slit on each side. My last project gave me a headache so I wanted to do something quick and easy this time around. This dress only took a few hours to pattern, cut, sew and finish. Just to give you a comparison, a sheath dress with lining will usually take me about 2 days to make so a few hours is very quick in my book.
