Before I moved to Northern California (Bay Area – Napa Valley to be exact), I thought I’m the luckiest girl on the planet and I’ll never have to deal with cold, winter days anymore. Don’t get me wrong, most of this statement is still true, however, it turns out Northern California winter is not always just sunshine and butterflies. Even more so, if you live in the valley or near the bay.
I quickly learned that while most days in Napa Valley are sunny and beautiful, nights and mornings get pretty cold. Nevertheless, getting used to high jumps in temperatures was still a small price to pay for living in such a beautiful place. I mean come one, we had a beautiful fall up until mid December! If you ask me what the weather is like right now, I will say it’s been gray and rainy for days with a side of flood warnings more recently! Not that fun, but hey, I’d still take that over freezing, winter days in Delaware (or Poland).
Now, what to wear for Northern California winter? If we’re talking just Napa Valley, most days you’ll be alright with just a cozy sweater like this over-sized off the shoulder one from Zaful, which I seriously wear on repeat! However, always remember about the layers. Scarves and vests are definitely your friend, too!
If you decide to visit the valley soon, don’t forget about the hat, an umbrella and the rain boots!
