For those who don’t know, I will be turning 27 in a few days! I knew the perfect way I would want to celebrate my birthday this year, so Tor and I decided to pack our bags and head up to Napa for a romantic, wine-filled week of celebrations. Today I am sharing what I am packing for my birthday getaway to Napa Valley!
Last year, my birthday was a bit overshadowed by my bachelorette weekend, my second bridal shower, and my impending wedding (which marks one year in just a couple of weeks!), so I didn’t really get to celebrate as I would have liked to since I was a bit preoccupied and celebrating many other things! This year, I am doing it right and going away with Tor for my first birthday as Mrs. Coombs.
Tor and I have been to Napa a few times before, especially since it was originally our first choice for our wedding destination, but we have never stayed overnight. My dad does not live far from Napa Valley (only about one hour away), so trips to wine country have always been day trips. Not this time! This time, we will actually be packing bags and enjoying Napa for more than just one day.
Here is what I am packing for my birthday trip to Napa:
*A new dress and skirt/sweater set from RedValentino.
*This Vivetta dress I’ve been saving since before Christmas specifically for my birthday! (I know, I’m weird to save things but I needed the weather to be just right!)
*This J. Crew blazer (currently on sale!) plus this J. Crew shirt with camel jeans and these boots – a look inspired by Kate Middleton.
*This ruffled sweater (last worn here) and white jeans with these flats.
*I am still obsessed with this Eugenia Kim hat (last worn here) and this Preston & Olivia hat (last worn here), so I am bringing those along, too!
*I am also bringing my four go-to bags: my Chanel bag, this Gucci bag, this Chloé bag, and this Cult Gaia bag.
*Since Tor and I have a spa day planned, I plan on bringing this swimsuit (last worn here) to enjoy their mineral pools post-treatment.
*And I haven’t decided yet, but I am super tempted to bring this dress that I am OBSESSED with lately! I am just hoping it won’t be too cold for it!
*I am also thinking of bringing out my favorite floral BB Dakota dress (last worn here) for my birthday dinner.
Yes, I also think I am overpacking but you never know what the weather will be like (NoCal can be a bit unpredictable). I cannot wait to post more from Napa during my birthday celebration!
