The weather has FINALLY changed! The nights are longer and the air is now cold and crisp. With this change I’m happy to be wearing denim every day once again and take the chances to pull out some of my more sartorial pieces. Case in point these suede boots and wide brim hat that I knew I had to pack on a recent weekend getaway to Temecula wine country!

I have to be honest that before I purchased either of these things, I was quite hesitant about them. I love a good accessory but like anyone else I too have my moments when I think something may be too risky to wear and not “on brand” for me—LOL. But lo and behold I took a risk and it surely paid off. Can you tell by these photos that I was living my best wine life? Then again, a glass of wine or two will ensure you’re always living your best life regardless of the scenario!
