Raffaldini Vineyard

We spent last weekend exploring a few of the hundreds of vineyards located in North Carolina and Virginia. Our first visit was to the breathtaking Raffaldini Vineyard.











After taking a stroll around the grounds and checking out the art collection, we attended a tasting to try a few of their wines. Sitting in the morning sun, taking in the spectacular view was the perfect way to cap off our visit to this beautiful vineyard.






I dressed for the day, knowing I would need to remove layers as the weather warmed up. During the cooler morning hours, I wore my white linen moto jacket from Stein Mart over a black Clara Sunwoo top with a scarf by Versace via Saks Off 5th.

The very comfortable flat shoes are by Halogen via Nordstrom. The evening bag, which has a reptile embossed texture, was turned into a shoulder bag for daytime by using the attached chain. I typically tuck the chain inside the bag to use it as an evening clutch. I have worn these tan Lior Paris pants many, many times. They and the black Clara Sunwoo top are both from my favorite boutique, ShopMyFairLady.com.

I will share more photos from our fantastic weekend tour of the local vineyards tomorrow!

  1. Stylish as always. Looks like Mr. Mickey is growing his beard for his December debut. How far in advance does he stop trimming his beard?

    1. He gets regular trims, but his stylist knows the plan. He lets it grow for about three months but it isn’t growing as much as it once did but he still makes a convincing Santa.

  2. Again, I love the scarf that pulls it all together. You must have a nice scarf collection because I love them all.I like that your scarves are smaller in scale than most I see. I get so hot with a large bulky scarf. The shoes are perfect with this outfit also.

  3. What a wonderful place to visit on a sunny autumn morning. Thank you for sharing your photos and fashion tips with us! You are a wealth of information.

  4. Susan,

    I think you would look good in a straight-leg pant with a crease. I’m curious about how tall you are. You’re very pretty and elegant.


  5. What a beautiful vineyard. Another one I need to add to my bucket list. You & Mr. Mickey look great. As usual, I love your look.
