Checks and Wine

Tony Lama Latigo Tucson Cowgirl Boots

This past weekend sixteen of us headed to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to a town called Grapevine for our 2nd Annual GrapeFest Girls Weekend. The festival is a three day event filled with vendors, food, music, carnival rides and of course wine. Thankfully the weather was much different for us this year. Fall arrived just in time and we didn't have to melt from the blazing heat like we did last year. Let me tell you, it was like Mother Nature flew down from the sky and graced us with an almost forgotten chill. 

I wore this heavier cotton buffalo check drop waist dress from Old Navy and my cowgirl boots for our first afternoon out. It is so comfortable, doesn't wrinkle and is a perfect print for fall and winter. I think it will be fun with my riding boots and a tan blazer for a more classic style. I also plan to wear it with tights, ankle boots and my denim jacket. It is a Refinery 29 Top Pick and I have a feeling it might not last long.

SHOP THE LOOK



If you live in Texas, you really need to mark your calendar for GrapeFest next year. Plan yourself a girls trip or a romantic getaway. We stayed at The Gaylord Texan. This resort is a vacation in itself. We also did a few other fun excursions, so if you want to make plans to go next year, shoot me an email or leave me a comment. I am happy to help answer any questions. I cannot take credit for all the planning though, my friend was rock star and set up our entire trip. I can however, pass the detailed daily itinerary she made for us onto anyone who is interested. Cheers!

I just ordered a similar dress from an IG boutique. I have been stumped as to how to style it. I have brown cowboy boots, so I think this may be my first look! I love it! I am glad you had a great weekend(: Susan

I just got a shirt in this print from TJ Maxx last week and love it. I don't know how I missed that dress at Old Navy. They've really been a hit for me lately.

Francie Escovedo said...

I LOVE your boots. Do the boots you are wearing have a zipper? The boots in the link have a zipper and the shaft appears to be taller. The boots you're wearing seem to hit in just the right spot on your calf. They're lovely. I want a pair so bad, but I just haven't found the perfect pair yet. You know, the pair that just speaks to you... LOL!

I'm leaving Wednesday morning for a beach getaway with my 15 best girlfriends and I canNOT wait!! Super cute outfit! I finally ordered the striped dress you featured last week from Old Navy (in orange and blue, WAR EAGLE!) I can't wait to get it! I don't think I can carry off this drop waist but I do love it!

That festival sounds so fun!!! I'm glad you and your ladies got to go and enjoy some cooler temps this year ;) your outfit screams FALL!!!

StacyHudson said...

I absolutely love that dress! I jumped on and ordered it right away! It was on sale AND Old Navy had 30% off so I got it for just under $20. :) Thanks for sharing...love your style! I wish I had your patience for Forever 21 so for now I'll just let YOU do the shopping there and just tell us what to buy! I'm curious, do you shop H&M (aka Hit and Miss)? I can't remember if I've seen posts including H&M items. I found a fun bag there that I thought you may just love. Check it out: http://www.hm.com/us/product/31499?article=31499-A
