Bella Vineyard & A Wine Inspired Giveaway

outfit details - dress: c/o The Limited, shoes: Zara, scarf: Forever 21

It has always been a dream of mine to visit wine country. The rolling green hills, rows and rows of grapes as far as the eye can see, the breezy air and constantly flowing nectar of the gods...this northern california destination is one I won't soon forget. And plan to visit time and time again.

Bella Vineyards is one of my favorite of the locations we visited. The wine tasting takes place in a cave, dimly lit and romantic, with special rooms off to each side for private dinners & events. We tried more than six of their amazing wines, from chardonnay to zinfandel, pinot noir to the deepest of merlots. 

After our hour long tasting, we were in serious need of some lunch and shade. Cat and her fiancĂ© (who were our incredible hosts for the weekend!), had packed us a picnic lunch with some crusty garlic sourdough, grapes fresh off their family's vineyard, chicken salad and the creamiest of brie. I was in HEAVEN. 

It was quite serendipitous that the dress I wore that day seemed to reflect the same color as the wines I noticed were my favorite. Before this trip, I never know how delicious a pinot noir could be! So thankful that Phoenix temps should be dropping soon, and I can get back to drinking my favorite reds.

Until then, I'll just have to show my love of deep reds through outfits! I've partnered up with The Limited to help celebrate the company's 50th anniversary. Within the company's celebration, they are raising money for an important organization, Dress for Success. Learn more how you can contribute here.

A big milestone to cheers to, and even better, a new store has come to Phoenix! You can visit it at The Biltmore Fashion Park. And one of you lucky readers can win a $50 giftcard to The Limited to spend on your first visit! Visit The Limited's site, and comment below with your favorite piece of clothing you want to wear this fall. The contest will end next Thursday, September 5 at 6:00 PM MST. Winner will be announced the following day! Good luck!



  1. I have always loved the timeless looks of The Limited and I am especially loving the Scuba Skater Dress for fall.

  2. In my dream life I'll be wearing the faux leather dress with the cutesy cut-out in the back...but realistically the tuxedo striped skinny pants!

  3. You look beautiful!! I love the dress & even more so knowing it matches your new favorite red wine - Pinot Noir (my favorite red!).
