Wine Country Wedding

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a BEAUTIFUL wedding in Napa, CA... the nuptials of Crystal [ahem... MRS. Palecek] to be exact. Guests gathered at Durham Ranch, a mesmerizing private estate nestled into a sweeping hillside. The dress, the cocktail hour by the pool, the tablescape, the dance floor under the stars... each and every detail was exquisite. I must say, I don't think I've ever seen a couple as in love as Crystal and Andrew. It is refreshing, inspiring, and makes me truly grateful to know them both. 

As for what I wore....

dress H&M [old] // clutch Francesca's [old] // shoes Zara // necklaces Anna Bee Jewelry [c/o] and J.Crew

I bought this dress a few years ago in Las Vegas. It was approximately 1 billion degrees outside, and a giant silk bag seemed like the only reasonable purchase I could make. It is one of my favorite pieces, and I should probably write H&M a handwritten note thanking them for creating such a quality piece. I'd initially planned to wear sandals, but Tina told me to pull it together and instead I picked up these beauties from Zara. They didn't entirely help when I tried to dance the night away, but I am obsessed with them none the less. 

Also, can we discuss how if I'd thrown on ONE red accessory, I could have changed the entire plot of this post to be 4th of July themed? BLEW IT. What are you guys doing for the 4th?? We'll be heading to a mimosa brunch followed by lounging in the park. THE perfect San Francisco day if you ask me! 

Hope you're enjoying this faux-Friday, and have a wonderful 4th!
