The month of August is almost to and end and here at the Dina Mackney studio we’re thinking now is a “gem” of a time for a girls weekend! If you’re like us, your summer has been a whirlwind and you need some time to unwind before the back to school rush. What better place to partake in some serious R&R than at a fabulous winery! Being in the Washington metropolitan area affords us access to stunning family owned wineries throughout Virginia and Maryland. Some of my favorites are Barrel Oak Winery and Cana Vinyards, Take advantage and start planning your quick getaway now.

During your weekend, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is your outfit so make sure to pack a fashionable “uniform” to get you through each gloriously lazy day.  My top suggestions are a lightweight knit sweater, classic black denim, and cool flat sandals, like the ones above from Vince, Eileen Fisher and Loeffer Randall.  This look will take you from breakfast to wine tastings to evening strolls effortlessly.

Pair your outfit with two of my favorite jewelry designs: the 18K Gold Cutout Cuff Bracelet and the Open Neck Crystal Collar Necklace. Both of these pieces are currently available at Neiman Marcus retailers and while they definitely stand out on their own, these accessories offer high wattage glamour when worn together. The boldness of the jewelry is great for this sort of occasion; it allows your casual wardrobe to be both comfortable and chic! Add in a bright colored clutch and a matching lipstick  and you’re ready for your best weekend yet!

Let me know your favorite way to relax by tagging your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pictures with #dinamackney or #mydina. Here’s to a fabulous wine weekend!

Love, Dina
