Going Wine Tasting in France?

March 3, 2010

A friend of mine is taking his 18-year-old daughter to France to get an early taste of some fine, fine wines during her Spring Break from college (lucky, lucky girl!). They are starting out in Paris and then going to some of the most spectacular chateaux in Bordeaux and surrounding areas. I sent him some ideas of what she could wear to travel light, mix up and accessorize, and attend some wine tastings:

I love the Boyfriend Jacket because it’s so versatile and can be worn over anything from dresses to t-shirts and jeans. I really like the ones that have fun linings so you can roll up the sleeves. The air will still be crisp in mid-March, so a jacket like this will be perfect!

I specifically picked out these black, gray and charcoal colors for dress options for the easy options and pack-ability. I also like the solid colors because they play up the draped effects and are so easily accessorized.

Ahhhhh, makes me long for the days I spent traipsing through France! Bon voyage!
