NAPA VALLEY Thanksgiving Packing List

packing list napa valley thanksgiving by Erika Brechtel

Off to Napa tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with my parents! I may be biased, but my mom is one of the best cooks I know, and I’m super excited to be treated to what will be another outstanding gourmet feast (check out last year’s menu). Not to mention (another bias) my dad has the one of the best wine collections I know. Add in one of the most beautiful destinations — especially in the fall — and you have one dreamy Thanksgiving holiday. When I go up there at this time of year, I’m all about easy cozy tops, great comfie boots, a cute scarf, a good coat, and stylish accessories to make sure I fit right in with those San Franciscans that come up to the valley over the weekend.
