{Wearing Prints! The Bigger The Better With Boho Lifestyle}

Hello and Welcome to VineLiving, this is for anyone who's reading my blog for the first time! I realized I rarely "re-introduce" myself on the blog or Instagram, which is something I see bloggers do often, probably so their new followers don't have to go back and read from the beginning ! My name is Mallory and I was born and raised in the Napa Valley! I decided to make it my permanent residence when I purchased my home with my husband last September 2016, but who knows ? We could go anywhere we want, since we don't currently have any children! I work in hospitality for Silver Trident Winery and run a successful networking group called BANG (By Appointment Network Group).. needless to say, between this, work and Bang, I am a busy gal! 

They say if you love what you do, then it's not work! I love giving people advice on where to taste wine, eat, stay and what to wear when visiting the Napa Valley!

I personally love to shop local and always try to get my special tops, dresses, rompers and sweaters from boutiques in the area! On this occasion I stopped into Boho Lifestyle (one of my regular stops) and found a million things I wanted, having to narrow it down to just a few, is and was, an impossible task! I decided on a few bold prints, because I rarely even do BIG prints! If you do follow me regularly you know I stick to the basics, stripes, some floral, but mostly solids.  This Molly Bracken  Romper is not only incredible soft, it fits me perfectly, not too short and the halter style flatters me in all the right places (hello under arm side boob fat we all love), including the top part having just enough extra fabric, that its comfortable for a day of wine tasting, but also doesn't add volume to the top when you don't need it (like me :))! There were only a few sizes left of this Romper and it's a new brand I noticed they are carrying at Boho. I found myself gravitating towards a few Molly Bracken (their official site linked to the left) pieces so I am excited to see what else they have in the future!

The straw hat and shoes are both from boho lifestyle, but purchased at separate times! My glasses were $12 from American Eagle Outfitters and my bag $60 was a gift from my brother and sister in law for Christmas (sole society)....

The great thing about wine tasting? You can wear whatever you want and no one cares! You will be a distant memory with the mass of tourists we see on a daily basis, rock that trend and or see through top without fear! My top is 2NE1 $39, originally I was thinking it was out of my comfort zone, but the sweet sales gal said I should try it. I did and I wasn't disappointed ! With a bralet underneath and a pair of highwaisted Honey Punch shorts, I thought I rocked it! It's definitely more of a festival outfit with the bralet, but I could easily throw a camisole on underneath and it would be totally work appropriate ! The bell sleeve and off the shoulder detail are super fun surprises! Another option for styling, you could do a pencil skirt with it tucked in or leave untucked over a pair of Jeans with flats or heels! The rose detailing is pretty and not over the top! These Honey Punch (similar HERE) shorts $33 are probably the most comfortable pair of shorts I own! Silk like material with a elastic waist, they are completely casual, yet could totally be dressed up with some wedges and cute top. Almost forgot, my adorable black hat is also from Boho $19..I'm obsessed with it !

If you're local to Napa or visiting as you're reading this, definitely stop by Boho Lifestyle to check out their current selection ! They move through product quickly so if you really love something, call to reserve it and or have it shipped !
