A Weekend Idyll

Lisa Marie Fernandez dress

This past weekend my husband and I spent 36 idyllic hours in Napa to celebrate our 10th anniversary.  It was such fun and so lovely to get to relax after what seems like many months of running around in a thousand directions.

I also got to take some summer clothes out for a spin.  Even though the mornings and evenings got chilly, the days were hot– in the 80’s, which is a far cry from the foggy chilly weather that has become the norm in San Francisco these past few weeks.  Wearing sun dresses and bare legs was a dream.

This was a picture I took shortly before we came back home to the chill.  Then I wore this dress with white cropped jeans underneath and espadrilles on my feet (similar to these).  But for a few brief shining hours, my legs were out in the sun, and my feet were in sandals.

Mission accomplished.

  • Congratulations on 10 years! That’s major! 36 hours is the perfect amount of time for a getaway. I adore the New York Times 36 hour series.

    • Thank you so much, Vanessa! Those books are so awesome! I’ve always wanted to follow their plans for fabulous weekends away.

      I hope you are doing great and looking forward to a beautiful summer!
