Days of Denim

days of denim
nike free run shoes
Denim is one of my favorite categories. There’s a wash for every occasion, a fit for everybody type and style for every age.
womens new balance shoes
At the moment, I’m especially loving a good boyfriend jean in a medium worn in wash, like the Fidelity Denim Axl jean and pair with a wedge or heel to balance the relaxed leg. For a cleaner style, I’ve always been a fan of a good J Brand dark rinse skinny and often wear with a flat or sandal. The Indio wash from Hudson offers a lighter wash and cropped fit, so you can pair with a white tee in the fall months and still have a summer vibe.

Right now, we have the whole spectrum of new washes and fits to take you into fall and winter and we cannot wait to pair with cozy sweaters that will be arriving in the coming weeks!


Fall Pieces We’re Currently Falling For

Even though temps have been hotter than hot here in Napa, they’re not stopping the fall arrivals from coming our way. Which makes us wish we could sport the latest hats and sweaters sooner than later. In the meantime, we can lust over some pieces that we can’t wait to wear full throttle in the next few months.

SUNNIES: if you typically reach for a black or tortoise frame, this olive color is a good way to switch it up + the fit is fantastic.

BLACK PANT: an updated fall staple + the softest fabric ever.

TEE: the color of the year + goes with your fall color palette.

NECKLACE: the necklace you’ll wear all year long + the most dainty piece to pair with everything.

FLOPPY HAT: two words: instant chic + just the right amount of flop.

SWEATER: asymmetrical hem + neutral color, makes for your not so average fall sweater.

The People of PlumpJack: Jacqi Almond

This week on The People of PlumpJack we feature Marketing Manager at The Carneros Inn, Jacqi Almond. She has been with The Carneros Inn for nine months, and has worked in the Napa Valley resort industry for eight years. For Jacqi one of the greatest parts of her job is the ability to share the property and connect with people who haven’t had the opportunity to experience it yet.

Originally from Woodbridge, Virgina, Jacqi lives in Santa Rosa. She is an avid football fan and always roots for the Washington Redskins. When she’s not working, you can find Jacqi reading and running, she has run over 15 half marathons, marathons and ultra relays. This upcoming July she is reregistered for the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon. Clearly a disciplined women, Jacqi has a personal goal to read 100 books this year.

Conversations with Hilary: Diane Keaton

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Diane Keaton on one of her many visits to The Carneros Inn. Diane frequented the Napa Valley while doing research for her book House, that expresses her vision of how we live today in spaces that have been artfully re-purposed or reinvented. The book demonstrates a strong commitment to environmental consciousness and its embrace of Green design, as seen in the architecture and interiors portrayed.

The Pant You’ll Reach for Again and Again

Have you worn out your tried and true jeans? Already have a pair of summer linen pants? The perfect work to weekend trouser?
what basketball shoes does stephen curry wear
Enter: The Jogger Pant – an easy ankle length with a slight banded hem, that you can pair with practically any shoe and with a million fabrics and colors out, this is an ideal pant to take from day to night. I love pairing with heels and a fitted top for drinks at night or with a slip on sneaker and loose sweater during the day. They’re also a great weight to wear throughout spring and well into fall.

A particular jogger pant we’re currently coveting, is the Abby jogger from Level 99. It’s offered in a beautiful chambray inspired dye and the lightweight fabric is as soft as ever.

How To Shop For: Mom

Not only do I absolutely love shopping for all my friends and family for the holidays, I especially love shopping for my mom. It’s a reason to spoil her and I love the mission of finding just the right gift. The gift that she wouldn’t expect or something she had looked for in the past and had no luck. The gift that simply says, “I love you this much”.best air jordan

Here are some ideas that she’ll be sure to love.

Airport Essentials

The holiday season is upon us! This means shopping for loved ones, the sweet smell of baking, and traveling to see friends and family. So I thought I’d take a moment to share my picks for when you’re at the airport and on the plane, when traveling this holiday season.
authentic air jordan
I used to not be a fan of flying, but in recent years, I have become more comfortable with it and actually view it as something to look forward to. With each flight, I also become more of an expert flyer, as each trip I learn new tricks to make the traveling experience as seamless as possible. Here are a few pieces to help you find a little more comfort when in the sky in the coming months.
stephen curry golden shoes

air max 1s
1. Comfortable pants – the ultimate lifesaver. You want a truly comfortable pant to wear on the plane, especially if you’re going to be on a coast to coast flight. These are great since they’re a modal/spandex blend and have fantastic stretch and keep their true black color wash after wash. (Level 99 Lily skinny straight pant in forever black, $118)

2. Comfortable flats – because no one wants to wear bulky shoes while trying to curl up in your seat while watching the latest movie (and taking your shoes off is just not an option). These feel like slippers but wear as a chic flat. Bonus, you can still wear a nylon sock with them for when you have to go through security. (Yosi Samra Samara flat in black crocodile, $70)

3. Notebook – my motto when I’m in the air is, “Life is so much simpler at 30,000 feet”. Thus, the best time to reflect and write down anything that comes to mind. (Kate Spade, “Leave Something to the Imagination” notebook, $24)

4. Hair ties – nothing is worse than when you’re half way through your flight and don’t have something to put your hair up with. I bring a handful of these each trip, just in case. (Goody hair ties, $4)
new balance 811
5. Oversize cozy cardigan – versatility at its’ best. This cardigan is perfect for layering and even better to wrap up in as an alternative to a mysteriously packaged on board blanket. (Tart collections Darla cardigan, $150)

6. Travel proof skin care – for when you feel the effects of the glorious recycled cabin air on board. The line was “created specifically to combat environmental stresses that affect the health of the skin including travel and flight fatigue.” The travel size products offer five ways of hydration to keep you feeling refreshed all flight long and keep you reaching for them even after you land. (Air Repair skincare kit, $42)
