Curvy Nautical Patriotic Style – Yasmina Greco

Hello my friends, summer is in full swing and the 4th of July is in a couple of days. Many of you will be enjoying BBQs, spending time at the beach or enjoying your summer vacations. These patriotic looks I have put together come in a variety of sizes and many in up to size 4X so us curvy girls can definitely wear them all year as the key is in the mixing and the matching of prints and the quintessential red, white, and blue colors we love.  You can easily take your outfits to the next level with accessories like cute novelty bags, shoes, and cardigans to rock your 4th of July style all year long.

I love nautical style and really anything nautical themed because it is so classic. These four outfits I have in my opening photo are very patriotic with a nautical twist and they are so easy to wear. Nautical print dresses are so fun during the summer months and just image wearing one of these in The Hamptons, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, wow, you will stand out with so much style!! You can take elements from each look and wear them all year.

Plaid in San Francisco

Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco Yasmina Greco Modcloth

After working all week it is so nice to take time and have some serious fun. Hubby and I drove into San Francisco this weekend for some delicious food and fun activities. Although still early in the Fall season the weather sure had that crisp Autumn feel and I was really excited for the start of sweater weather.

Mod Mint Day in San Francisco

Yasmina Greco Modcloth Collectif Golden State of Mind A-Line Dress

A fit and flare dress is universally flattering on a number of body shapes while making legs look longer and showing off your waist. This aqua blue beauty with a stunning border print of San Francisco in particular from retailer Modcloth in collaboration with one of my favorite vintage-style brands Collectif Clothing made me swoon from the first moment I saw the Collectif MC Golden State of Mind A-Line Dress online.

Living in the Bay Area this dress was an absolute must for me!! It arrived very quickly and I could not wait to put it on and shoot it for you all. I was not sure exactly which size to order but I followed the online size guide to fit my bust and am wearing the dress in size 20 (UK) and it fits my curves perfectly. Dress is available in sizes 4 (UK) – 28 (UK). It is so wonderful that Modcloth has beautiful clothing for us plus size gals. There is room for my ample bust, it has pockets, and the skirt is so full and gives me such a feminine silhouette and makes me want to twirl, twirl, twirl.

Pencil Skirt

Yasmina Greco - ModCloth Pencil Skirt

This might just be the only pencil skirt you’ll find me in. Long time readers of my blog know I am a swing skirt kinda gal. Let’s dive right in this skirt review and talk about the boarder print…those fabulous rainbow hued colored pencils!! Yep, it’s the rainbow pencils that caught my eye and I could not wait to get this skirt on and shoot it. The skirt is by ModCloth, not a brand I typically wear but this boarder print was just too good. I read some of the online reviews and was a little concerned about sizing as the reviews were all over the place. I ordered per the size chart and am so glad I did, as the fit is perfection. The skirt is made of cotton and breathes and has enough room in the waist to be very comfortable.

Here are some pics and yes, that is our very own 1950s Philco Predicta TV and it still works!!

Yasmina Greco - A-Line Modcloth Pencil SkirtThis skirt is very well made and includes a liner. It is an A-line cut and has pockets. The shape, being A-line did not work with a petticoat so I was a little saddened that I would not be able to wear a variety of colors with it but, the shape and fit are totally on-point. And those rainbow pencils, my oh my, in-person they are even brighter and more brilliant!! I paired the skirt with a berry colored top and belt to nip in my waist. This skirt allows for so many tops and cardigans and couldn’t be any simpler to style. Since I am more of a vintage/retro Pinup Girl I went with that theme and even added a matching hair tie. The skirt is so incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down with a blouse and accessories. You can also pair it with a variety of colorful shoes!! I will next be wearing this with a turquoise blue (my favorite color) top and matching accessories so stay tuned. The skirt is selling out quickly so hurry and snap yours up while sizes are in stock – ModCloth Cotton A-Line Skirt with Pockets.
