What I Ate: Montesacro Pinseria-Enoteca

Montesacro - Roman Pinseria-Enoteca - Mid Market

Outside Lands is just around the corner and I am kicking off the festival with a styling event at Superga SF (details here).

So why the food?

Montesacro, a killer spot in San Francisco’s mid-market area will be catering the event and I had a chance to preview some of their new menu items this week.

From Pinsa to the Panzanella salad Montesacro is a gem and I can NOT wait for you to try everything next Tuesday!

Now, let’s talk Pinsa!

Pinsa is a flatbread that was once prepared by peasants living outside the imperial walls during the Roman empire. Montesacro is the first “Pinseria” in the United States.

It presents a modern take on Pinsa that is made with a blend of rice, soy and wheat flour imported directly from Rome, All GMO-free. It is low-fat, low-calorie and easy to digest.

AMAZING

The first Pinsa we dug into (above) featured an egg and I am a firm believer that all Pinsa’s should feature an egg!

A White Dress for Summer

White Dress for SummerA perfect white dress is among many of my summer staples.

It’s my go-to staple that’s as fit for a cocktail party as it is for a weekend at the beach. Whether you are replacing an old favorite or need inspiration for a totally new twist you need summer white dress.

And at less than $2o for this dress, you won’t shed a tear when you get makeup on the neckline (like I did) or spill red wine all over it (like I probably will).

For this look, I layered a Lucy cardigan over my white sleeveless dress

(even though I probably didn’t need it in the CRAZY Arizona heat)

Durant & Booth – Napa Valley’s Latest Tasting Room

IMG_9558

A visit to the Napa Valley is always a treat for me. It never gets old and is always exciting…

Especially when I get to experience a new tasting room!

Let me introduce you to all things Durant & Booth: a breathtaking tasting room mixed with interesting wines and an amazing team.

The team at Durant & Booth has cultivated lasting friendships with local grape growers and winemakers to offer uncommon, limited-production wines sourced from Napa and Sonoma Valley’s finest appellations and vineyards. While my wine tasting skills are not anything to brag about I did enjoy the wines, especially the Cuvée!

KatWalkSF - Durant & Booth

Recognize this building?

That is probably because it is next to the historic Oakville Grocery!

(also known as the best spot to stop while wine tasting for delicious snacks)

So in between snack time at the Oakville Grocery store, considered the oldest continuously operating grocery store in the State of California…

and looking for the bathroom (on the other side of the building) you can hit up Durant & Booth.

The tasting room’s namesakes, Frederick Durant and Joseph Booth, were Napa Valley pioneers who brought the best of the region to locals and visitors alike. Over 100 years later, that tradition is carried on in Frederick Durant’s former home.

Designed by Howard Backen, the tasting room is straight out of Restoration Hardware mixed with a bit of a quirky side with a lobotomy kit and a bat prepared by a taxidermist hidden in the bookshelves.

When can I move in?

I love every little detail in this gorgeous tasting room.

This Rossi & Rei bag is still on heavy rotation in my wardrobe. It is a wine tasting staple too! I am pretty sure it can comfortably hold four wine bottles in it!

A little kick back moment in the back patio at Durant & Booth.

Durant & Booth - Outdoor Patio

Now, the back patio is the ultimate outdoor space. No detail was missed – including misters for those hot Napa summer afternoons.

Blake (above) looks very calm + relaxed and that is VERY hard for him to do, trust me!

And I enjoyed my first visit so much, that I came back for a second visit! My second tasting experience did not disappoint and I of course decided to pose next to the bar cart on the patio (again).

Walk-in the Durant & Booth tasting room (when available) or make an appointment here. Check this new spot out! You’ll love it for the design elements alone!

Statement Style with Shopbop’s ONE by boutique

ONE by STYLEKEEPERS - Shopbop

I recently found Shopbop’s ONE by boutique during some late night online shopping. The ONE by boutique is home to exceptional pieces from established and emerging designers. From flowy boho dresses to sleek everyday essentials the ONE by boutique is carefully curated by Shopbop’s buyers and editors.

This vintage-inspired STYLEKEEPERS wrap top was an ONE by boutique find. I had seen STYLEKEEPERS here and there on the internet and social media but didn’t make my first purchase until this killer statement top caught my eye. The layered ruffles on the 3/4 bishop sleeves and the wide ties made this statement top a new staple in my wardrobe. I styled this statement look with this (very well priced) maxi skirt, my Valentino ‘Tango’ pumps and a little bling and a big statement ring from Alexis Bittar.
