what to wear to a winery in the fall or winter

Last week, my mom and I spent a day and night at Gervasi (full blog post on that beautiful place coming soon!) and had the best time. It’s easy to pack for a winery in the summer (flowy dress, sunhat and sandals obvs) but in the fall/winter, it can be trickier! The weather called for rain during our visit so I was a little stumped when it came to choosing an outfit for wine tasting and a winery tour. Here’s what I came up with!

scarf: ivory & birch
cardigan: nordstrom (still available in black and gray!)
t-shirt: lush/nordstrom
jeans: hudson
hat: forever 21 (half off!)
boots: hunter (love this color!)
weekender bag: herschel

Local winery visits are usually short, maybe just a day or a weekend. I’ve shared my love for this weekender bag before and it proved perfect yet again for our quick trip! Everything I needed fit into it easily.

When it comes to your outfit, first (and most importantly!), wear comfortable and durable shoes. You don’t know where you’ll be walking if you’re taking a tour, so it’s best to wear something that really won’t get ruined. Since it was raining and I knew I could be a little casual, I opted for my Hunter Boots. They never fail! Speaking of rain, the weather is always unpredictable (at least around here!) so make sure to layer. A sweater, blanket scarf and coat should do the trick. Add or remove layers as needed!

When I’m at a winery, I just feel like I should be wearing a hat. Don’t ask me why! I love floppy straw hats in the summer but in the fall or winter, suede or felt is the way to go. The hat I’m wearing  is on sale for $11!

Have you been to a winery in the winter? What did you wear?!
