We had some fun a few weekends ago doing some local wine tasting in a little town called Los Olivos. The drive there is a little over an hour and it’s a really beautiful drive, especially in the Spring when everything is green! There’s not much to the town, it’s pretty small, but we hung out in a few of their restaurants on our first visit and had so much fun that we came back. This time we went to a popular winery called Rusack Winery just outside the town, and it was SO nice sitting out on their large patio that overlooked the vineyards and enjoying the nice weather… it was hard to leave! It was pretty windy when we first got there, as you can probably tell from the pictures, lol, but it calmed down a bit a little later. The Central Coast is known for its wineries, there are so many to choose from, but this one is considered a boutique winery because it’s a little smaller and they don’t do large events and weddings like most others do. That also means it’s not as crazy business which I really liked. If you ever visit some of the bigger wineries, normally there will be a few big events going on and wine tasting tour buses stopping in for bachelorette parties and such. I’ve done that type of wine tasting too, and it’s definitely fun, but I favor the chill days a little more.
I wore this maxi skirt from Cotton On, that I purchased about a year ago.
It’s no longer available but I found a few others that are just as cute, which I linked below. I’m thinking about purchasing this one because a skirt with stripes and pockets, pretty much has me sold immediately. I also really like the look of a cami or crop top underneath a chambray or light weight button up shirt. I purchased a few button up shirts from Express that are perfect for that and you can still dress them up if you choose. And then of course no wine tasting outfit is complete without a hat! 🙂 This style of hat (straw with wide brim) is popular every single summer, so if you’re a hat person you’ll get a lot of use out of one! Depending on how long your day is going to be, I would recommend wearing shoes you can wear for a long period of time. Wedges are usually a safe bet because they’re typically comfortable… just don’t wear a pair of new ones you’ve never broken in 🙂
