Polka Dots, Curves in Wine Country

Yasmina Greco Polka Dot Windsor

I wanted to share some pics with you all from my weekend in wine country. We are so fortunate to live in beautiful wine country California and have really great weather pretty much all year. This past weekend was so lovely, sunny, and cool with a little wind. Hubby and I headed to the quaint towns of Windsor and Healdsburg about 70 miles North of San Francisco.

I had a completely different outfit planned for this excursion but it didn’t work out well for my curves…. we will save that story for another time and another curvy blog post. I had seen this polka dot top in a magazine and being the lover of polka dots that I am, I had to have it. I was so happy to see the blouse come in plus size as it would need to fit my curves and it is a wrap top so I knew it would fit my bust and I was not disappointed when it arrived. The blouse had such a luxurious feel to it and it was made really well. Usually plus size curvy clothing from department stores are not all that well made and do not usually have a shape so I was pleasantly surprised what fast fashion from Macy’s delivered.

Beverly Hydranges by Heart of Haute

Yasmina Greco Heart of Haute Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are my all time favorite flower. When I first saw this Heart of Haute Hydrangea print dress in the Beverly pattern, I ordered it as quickly as I could because I knew it would fit my curves exquisitely and the quality would be outstanding. I was not disappointed!!

For these pics I posed next our blooming Rhododendrons because our Hydrangeas haven’t bloomed yet.

The colors on this Hydrangea print are so vivid and bright; they really pop!! The Hydrangea heads are like magnificent floral globes. The Beverly dress features an empire waist with fitted seams, a full swing skirt, round collar with adorable bow tie. This dress is not only work appropriate but is so feminine and flirty that it can also be worn shopping and going out to dinner. In these pics of me, I wore it out to dinner that evening with my hubby and had so many people admiring me and complimenting me on how pretty I looked!! I added a cardigan and the dress has so many great colors that matching it with a cardigan and petticoat will not be a problem for you. In these pics I am not wearing a petticoat and the swing skirt is still very full. For reference, I am wearing the dress in size 1X to fit my breasts and have lots of room in the waist but, the the dress ties in back so it takes up the extra room in the waist.
