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

Linnea White

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!

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.

Falling for Boho | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

It's September! Hallelujah! It may still be muggy outside - good 'ole Virginia summer - but we are filling up the shop with fall pieces. It's almost time for boots and booties, sweaters and scarves - can I get an amen?! (We seriously love fall. #sorrynotsorry)

I love to reinvent my style with the changing of the seasons, and for Fall, I always gravitate towards boho pieces, especially for that transitional Virginia Fall weather. What's more perfectly boho chic than this floppy felt hat? Paired with these gorgeous plum colored Rag & Bone jeans and a chunky knit sweater, this outfit is ready for crisp mornings and chilly evenings. Who's with us?!
