What to wear on a wine tour

Yesterday was a super fun day.  We went on a little wine tour of some wineries west of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  It could not have been a more beautiful day even if it was a little bit chilly.  I figured layers would be the best way to go and I was so happy with what I wore for the day.

This jacket is super special to me - it's a real live bomber jacket my father-in-law gave me well before the Pants Monkey and I were even engaged.  He had gotten it somewhere along the lines and it never fit him right, so then the Pants Monkey wore it for awhile until it had gotten too small for him.  I remember meeting Mr. Monkey and his parents for dinner one night when we were dating after I had been at church.  The temperature had dropped nearly 20 degrees while I was at church and I didn't have a warm enough jacket.  My father-in-law pulled this out of the closet and I thought it was to borrow, but he said I could have it and nothing would make him happier.  It warmed my heart so much and I have always loved it ever since!

The jacket may be a bit too big for me, but I don't mind.  It's warm and the love behind it makes it even warmer.  It was super comfy for a day of tasting wine!

Of course, I had to have something cute on under the jacket too - so I wore the "shopping ban shirt" as one of my friends called it.  I bought this sweater after I said I was on another shopping ban - but it was so on sale I felt like I couldn't pass it up!

Fact - almost the entire outfit is from Target. They're kind of on a roll with good clothes and accessories right now.

Another fact - I tried to time a jumping in the leaves picture and it didn't quite work out.  I'm still posting it anyway.

Always keeping it real my friends!  I hope you are all having wonderful weekends too!  Those of you on the East Coast - you're in my thoughts as Sandy heads your way - stay safe!
