Pat and I had the most amazing Saturday in wine country last weekend at the Festival Del Sole. The festival is a 10 day celebration of art, music, food and of course, wine! We were lucky enough to be joined by our friends Sarah and Lucas as well. Our day started with Yoga at the Harvest Inn in St. Helena. It was so nice to be able to start the day with a good stretch courtesy of Kind Bars and Courtney of Rev Yoga. I was also happy to find that I haven’t lost all of my mad yoga skillz that I picked up on my yoga retreat in India. Even though I love yoga and know how important it is, the 80 hour work weeks have definitely been hindering my practice. The class was excellent and suited for yogis of all skill levels, which isn’t an easy feat! It also ended with healthy Kind snacks and wine tasting (gotta keep things balanced, right?) from Sullivan winery.Our next stop was Taste of Napa. The event reminded me a bit of the amazing Wishes in Wine Country event that we went to a few months ago. I can definitely get behind an event that features a big group of local restaurants, artisans and wineries all handing out samples! With such a huge variety of offerings, this was a great way to get more familiar with the amazing fare that Napa Valley has to offer. My advice for this event would be to get their early, as the food definitely started to run out about halfway through the event.Outfit Deets :: Dress (Similar) // Bracelets (Crew Cuts and Similar) // Watch (Similar)We had a break before our next event, so we walked around downtown Napa and stopped at The Thomas for fancy mocktails before Sarah and Lucas had to head home. I was blown away by the beautiful rooftop space – it made me want to lounge and linger forever! We’re definitely going to go back for dinner ASAP.

One of my favorite parts of the day was the Sphinx Orchestra. I definitely don’t have enough fine arts in my life and this was some of the best classical music I have ever heard. I literally had goosebumps multiple times throughout the performance. It was incredible.We ended the night at Jamieson Ranch, where we enjoyed small bites, live jazz and a beautiful Napa valley sunset. It was the perfect way to end a splendid day. The Festival Del Sole is happening through the end of the weekend, so if you’re looking for a way to enjoy the finest of what Napa has to offer I definitely recommend checking it out!Outfit Deets :: Shirt (Marine Layer) // Skirt (Crew Cuts) // Shoes (Kate Spade) // Clutch (similar) // Bracelet (Madewell)
