Darling on the Trail, Outfit Inspiration, Style

How to Dress for a Polo Match | Darling on the Trail

Darling is on the trail – the Monticello Wine Trail, that is. Our first stop: King Family Vineyards for an afternoon polo picnic in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Last week, James King shared with us the history of King Family wine and Roseland Polo, a Sunday tradition for many locals. This week, see how we styled the looks for an early Fall afternoon at King Family! Shop these items and more at Darling Boutique, located on Charlottesville’s downtown mall!

Shoot Styled by Linnea White / Photography by Megan Tiernan / Hair & Make-up by Sarah Hatch of At Last

We arrived in style courtesy of the Monticello Wine Tour & Coach Company and our amazing driver for the day, Anna Quillon.

Next, we stopped in the tasting room for a bottle of Crosé and Cabernet Franc for our afternoon – both recommended by James King.
