Here we have the darling Mrs. Trousseau – she’s packed for holiday and thrilled to do so. Fresh from her wedding which was quite the ‘to do’ – a celebration of love and a gathering of the Michigan’s who’s-who. She’s here to indulge with her newly minted mister – to which she knew he was the one the moment he kissed her. She chose Napa for their honeymoon, a trip she’s been planning all her life – she dreamt it to be the perfect and most romantic holiday as husband and wife. With Swanson’s JUST MARRIED wine just served at her wedding – a trip to the Swanson Sip Shoppe was certainly befitting. She heard it was filled with special offerings and goodies galore – she was just dying to get inside this grown-up candy store! Her duffle is filled to the brim and on the verge of exploding – with a weeks worth of garments and goodness that she plans on unloading. It’s summer in wine country the weather just perfect – warm and sunny, just what you’d expect. For this time of year it’s all about transition wear – so that she can do what she pleases, fashionably and without a care! She’s got the perfect daytime dress that segways savvily into night – with the right accessories she’ll be a glittering sight. She brought her bikini as to show off her wedding ready physique – she spent months shopping for it and it’s painfully chic! What’s a trousseau without some sexy lingerie? And how about some naughty games to play? She’s got that covered and then some I’d say!

Mrs. Lilien I totally cyber-stalked, after squealing with delight over such lady-like posts as: Mrs. Lemonade, celebrating the many accoutrements of the of the 6:00 lemonade cocktail; then there was hilarious + brilliant Mrs. Lilien Paper Doll where Kelley Lilien, herself poses as a live paper doll surrounded by her favorite bits. I printed out the shameless Mrs. Jewel Box post, and pinned it up in the kitchen, in case my husband wanted to know EXACTLY what my jewelry box needed; and to seal the deal, I just swooned over her Mrs. Why-Not…. it was that post that made me wonder, were we raised in the same hen house?
It just so turned out I was looking for a Mrs. Curious + Eccentric.
Meet Mrs. Curious + Eccentric – she’s a real work of art, anything but generic – to consider her as such would be wildly hysteric! She travels often and usually [somewhat] light – and when she’s Napa bound she can hardly contain her delight! She keeps keys to her uncle’s pool house, her secret napa hide-a-way – the perfect place to luxuriate while penning her personal dossier. It’s summer time in the vineyard valley – so she brings along her must-haves for a routine yet leisure dilly-dally. The chilly mornings and evenings are met with balmy sun drenched days – so she brings the things that makes her sings in a million different ways. She’d be mad to leave home without a frock and a tote for shopping the farmer’s market, and a fabulous suit for all day poolside, where she plans to park it. There will be antiquing, lunches out, oh and the constant wine tasting – where she’ll post up at the Swanson Sip Shoppe and gossip with the who’s-who of wine making. She’ll shimmy into white jeans and a razor sharp jacket before skipping off to din-din – both casual chic and climate savvy, this pairing is a total win-win! Galavanting around Napa exploring the glorious sites – sipping the good stuff and savoring the gourmet bites – is where you’ll find this Mrs morning noon and nights! If you ask her there’s just nothing funner, than vacationing in Napa over the summer!
