The Easiest Spring Styles

Sometimes it feels like the seasons change over one weekend. We finally received some much needed rain over the past few weeks and this past week finally feels like spring has arrived (hello sunshine!).

With a new season, means a new wardrobe.
Which means finding time to scope out new pieces to add to your closet. Personally, I often don’t have time to take time and go out shopping. So I prefer getting some easy pieces that I know will last me a long time, will go with my existing pieces in rotation and easy enough to throw on for work or weekend.

This season was hard to narrow down my favorites, but a few that stood out can be versatile for most California weather well through fall and easy to become staples within a solid spring/summer wardrobe

  1. This shoe has recently become a Tory Burch favorite. The Lexington wedge is an easy style that you will live in almost year round – and is honestly comfortable. (Tory Burch)
  2. Sweater tank. I know what you’re thinking, a sweater for a warm weather season? But it’s a tank. And it’s a breathable woven. So it works  – really well. A great top to pair with cutoff denim shorts or tucked into some amazing joggers (as pictured).(360 Sweater)
  3. A perfect in season wash, and a relaxed fit are ideal for the coming months. This denim is your go-to-throw-on-with-any-top kind of pant that keeps it’s fit day to day. (Fidelity Denim).
  4. I’ll start by saying the picture does not do this one justice. This jumpsuit is hardly, a jumpsuit. On, it looks like a dress – flowy and ridiculously comfortable. So it’s absolutely perfect for bike rides and windy days. You’re welcome. (Tysa Designs)
  5. 5.   I’m happy that joggers are still on trend. (Okay, maybe I’m a little bias, since they typically are offered in shorter inseams and are ideal for my 5’3 self). Anyways, there are a great alternative to a denim since they’re a lighter pant and ultimately become your best friend when you bring on all your spring/summer vacations. (Velvet)

Happy Spring shopping!

The Carneros Inn Unveils $6.5 Million Renovation

PJNewsletter_Collage_March2016
The Carneros Inn in Napa Valley gets ready to unveil first phase of $6.5 million renovation, which includes a new wedding venue, enhancements to the family pool, new guest reception area, and refreshed cottages. Expected timeline of completion is early spring.

“We’re constantly striving to provide our guests at The Carneros Inn with the highest quality amenities and premier accommodations in Napa Valley,” says Vice President of Resort Operations, Philip Kendall. “These renovations showcase our efforts to complement the region’s distinct charm and our unique countryside location, and ultimately, are a testament to our goal of staying current and fresh among our loyal consumer base.”

Designed by Napa-based firm Shopworks, the new Guest Reception building is relocated near FARM restaurant. Guests will be welcomed with a new porte-cochère, water feature, and modern outdoor seating. The guest reception’s interior design will be an extension of the property’s charming countryside appeal with white battened walls, a front desk made of walnut with Carrera marble top, oversized mirrors to reflect the surrounding scenery, fresh cut flowers, orange and white furniture, as well as limestone flooring. By June 2016, the former guest reception area near the Hilltop Dining Room will be converted into two 500-square-foot owners’ lounge and board meeting space.

The Wedding Garden, the property’s main outdoor wedding venue, will receive a $1 million renovation with significant enhancements that include a beautifully planted trellis, an opulent water feature, lavish exterior landscaping, as well as drought tolerant and heel friendly turf, all of which overlook the surrounding Napa Valley vineyards and mountains. On the other end of the 27-acre property, the Family Pool will add an elevated deck with a shade trellis, new luxury padded lounges and furniture, fresh paint, and lush landscaping.

Additionally, the property’s 86 cottages and 10 suites are undergoing more than $2.8 million in soft renovations. The first phase to 40 cottages will be completed in 2016, with the remaining cottages completed in 2017. Keeping in line with the existing sun-washed space, the cottages will receive a lighter and crisper neutral color palette, including charcoal grey, white, dark purple, and accents with the Carneros orange. Bathroom renovations will include new heated tile flooring, counter-tops, bathroom fixtures, and soaking tubs. The cottages will also receive contemporary furniture and lighting, as well as soft goods, such as bedding, drapes, and accessories. Lastly, the cottages will install new TVs and media packages. The Hilltop pool will also add stylish lounge seating and eight cabanas, and the onsite gym will receive new flooring later this year.

Redefining Your Winter Wardrobe

This winter season here in Napa, we are yet again hoping for a season of true cold weather conditions and an abundance of rain. And while we’ll most likely at least get cooler temperatures, that’s a good enough reason for us to wear our winter coats and scarves. However, whether you’re here on the west or east coast, we all have become accustomed to reaching for the same neutral winter color palette and often fail to incorporate other colors that are often available but we tend to overlook.air jordan xvi

I love attending market (fashion market: where we go twice a year to pick out the latest and greatest styles for PlumpJackSport at The Carneros Inn) in September vs. February in New York, as it allows for a broader variety of what I can wear. Since we’re on our feet all day long and walking around the city morning and night, I’ve learned how crucial it is to embrace the happy hybrid of fashion and function.

1. a versatile carry on/market bag: this bag is nylon, so it’s easy to clean if I spill my wine the kid in front of you spills their juice on the plane due to turbulence, yet roomy and durable, for when we’re lugging around five pounds of orders and looksbooks/linesheets each day. (Tory Burch)

2. comfy, but cute sneakers: sneakers have a come a long way in breaking into the modern fashion world, so it’s almost impossible to not find a cute pair. I especially love these because I’m obsessed with leopard print it’s a great neutral to pair with almost any outfit on my trip. (Sam Edelman)

3. classic shades: an absolute staple – and it’s such a beautiful, sunny time in NYC right now. Protect those eyes in style! (A.J. Morgan)

4. a dark, casual to dressy jean: i live in relaxed/boyfriend-ish style denim, because it’s so easy to take from day to night and you could style with essentially, any shoe. These are comfortable enough to wear all day and flawless to wear at night with a dressy top. mapbild (Paige Denim)

5. a big, cozy neutral scarf: this is part of ‘Flying 101’. Steer clear of those shady airplane blankets and opt for a spacious, soft scarf to wrap up when it gets chilly during your flight or throw on when it gets chilly at night if you’re out to dinner. (Calypso)

2. We all have that one pair of go-to denim that is our tried and true fit, style and wash. What has been become the most versatile style from Fidelity, that the average girl can wear year round? Definitely the Charlie.  This is a fit that is a true skinny.  Just between your ultra skinny and the skinny straight.

Fidelity promises to proudly manufacture every garment in the U.S.A, in a meticulous manner, for the ultimate fit.

4. Most people have a skinny, boot cut, cropped and shorts in their current wardrobe. What is a key denim style that we should be on the look for? Flares are an important piece in any wardrobe with the 70’s trend right now. Also, for that forward customer, anti fits and re worked boyfriends are also relevant.

5. What is the best way to care for your denim and get the most life out your favorite pair? Denim is best when it’s  never washed.  The characters of the fabric and it’s weave show through best after aging.

Denim is one of my favorite categories. There’s a wash for every occasion, a fit for everybody type and style for every age.

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.
