Last weekend, I fulfilled one of my longtime dreams when I had a chance to dine at The French Laundry.  A totally spectacular culinary experience.  This outfit is what I wore for my sunny day up in Napa, and to one of the best dinners of my life :)

Beautiful outfit for a beautiful meal! Since FL is on my to-eat list, I will plan a trip out West as soon as I land a reservation! Now you need to come to New York for the Per Se experience :)

Comment by Usha

I would looooove to come to New York and eat at Per Se! :) Or just come to New York period — it’s been years!

Lucky you! I’m longing to go there too. Love your color combination, as always, and did you see that your wishlisted KS Sonja dress got another cut today?

Comment by Patti

Thank you Patti! And yes, I saw, and immediately pounced :) Did you pick up anything exciting yourself?

Comment by goldenmeans

OMG I am so envious of your dinner excursion to the French Laundry! I LOVE your outfit. Perfect for such a remarkable occasion. Beautiful photos too!

You look lovely! Are there any colors/combos you can’t wear? <3 And *love* the thick braid!

-_- Oh, and shame on you for putting that Sonja tennis ball dress back into my head. I just went and ordered one.

Comment by zyzzyva

Awww, thank you. And yay for the Sonja dress! (And I refuse to feel bad; as if you didn’t enable me enough yourself ;))

Comment by ananda

You look super cute! since we are talking about eating, I found something you might like…
They are plates that look like open books! It is a restaurant supply company so you have to order a ton but maybe they are somewhere else!

Oh Sandee, those are *amazing*. Thank you so much for sharing; I *must* have these some day :)

Comment by goldenmeans

I love your sunhat and your shoes! So… sunny. xD I wish I lived somewhere with a better culinary scene, but I take what I can get when I visit the LA area. xD

how is that these black and white prints work with the pale blue embroideriness? They just do- I love it.

You know, the Mompos dress is one of those pieces that didn’t appeal to me at the time, but I have grown to love it and get a little happy every time I see someone wearing it. It’s so ridiculously cute and sunny, like it comes from a pretty world where everyone is happy and uncritical :)

Jealous!!! :) You picked a fabulous, whimsical outfit for a special restaurant. Heading to the Inn at Little Washington (in Washington, VA!, not DC) next month for anniversary dinner. Add it to your list if you haven’t been yet….Thinking of wearing the yellow swirly Kate Spade dress, although have to admit it reminds me of Fruit Stripes gum. Oh, and thanks for clueing me in on the adorable Kate Spade camel belt; hoping that will go on sale.

Comment by Sassy

Oh you lucky ducky!! My husband and I have talked about going there for our 5 year anniversary- but that’s still 3 years away! I bet it was beyond delicious! I love your outfit here and I love how you styled your hair in a braid. My hair is finally long enough and I’ve been experimenting with braiding- yours is so beautiful and thick!

Comment by Tammy

Love your dress! Such a great Napa outfit ;)

Comment by Lauren

Such a pretty dress. Love the necklace too.

Comment by Camila Faria

Dar.Ling. And your waist looks *this* big. The hat is so cute on you. Congrats on getting to the French Laundry.

Comment by gigiofca

I think this dress is very flattering on you and I really love the “Elements of Style” necklace! I’m an English teacher–I’d really like to get it! Is it Kate Spade?

Comment by Megan
