Summery Wine Country Looks from Gwynnie Bee

Summery Wine Country Looks from Gwynnie Bee

Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Today, I want to share some of my recent summery Wine Country Looks that I put together with pieces from Gwynnie Bee.

Have you heard of Gywnnie Bee? My friend Malia, of Style by Malia, loves this subscription clothing service. After seeing an offer for a free month trial pop up on my Facebook feed, I decided I would give it try too.

I normally wouldn’t seek out a plus-size clothing line or subscription service because I usually wear size 10, 12 and occasionally a 14, depending on the garment and brand. I have never had a problem finding those sizes in Misses so looking at plus-size sites hadn’t occurred to me. But it turns out many of the brands Gwynnie Bee carries start at size 10 and go up from there. And I found that many of the clothes available at Gwynnie Bee work well with my Wine Country style.

This beautiful Melissa McCarthy Seven7 dress was the first item that caught my eye. It has become my favorite maxi. I love the pattern, the fit, and the color palette. It’s just so easy to wear – throw it on and go!

I wore my dress with flat nude-colored sandals (similar) and carried my go-to handbag this summer from Kate Spade (similar).

I love the adjustable drawstring sleeves on this dress.

Getting to see my girls for a moment when my husband dropped something off to me while I was in Healdsburg

And I find the V-neck and the tie at the waist to both be quite flattering.


I wore this dress for the first time during my Girlfriends Getaway to Healdsburg earlier this month, which I will be blogging about soon. And I plan on taking it with me to this week’s Festival Napa Valley.

While in Healdsburg I also wore this outfit. This top from Gwynnie Bee has shoulder ties that I think are so cute – and they’re adjustable. I also love the top’s dramatic high-low hem. The length in the back is long so it helps to be on the tall side when wearing this top.

I wore the top with Gap Girlfriend Jeans, flat sandals and my Louis Vuitton clutch. I also wore my new Wine Country necklace made by Kelley Hollis.

You may remember the Wine Country Brooch necklace that I made, with lots of help from Tamera Beardsley’s instructions and a crafty friend of mine.

I found I wasn’t wearing it much at all after the Bloggers Getaway to Napa Valley and with all the money, time and effort I had put into it, that seemed like a real shame! The existing necklace was just too heavy for me and got on my nerves when I wore it. I knew Kelley made beautiful jewelry from vintage pendants, brooches and earrings so I asked her if she could re-make my brooch necklace into something lighter and more comfortable. And here is what she came up with. I absolutely adore it and wear it often. I love having a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!

Kelley has a beautiful collection of pieces and she also will take custom orders (she is a super nice person too!). You can contact her at if you’re interested in a custom design.

This fun, purple off-the-shoulder top is also from Gwynnie Bee. It’s very comfortable and I wear it often. I wasn’t sure I would like the color – rarely wear purple – but I do, especially when I pair it with white. I decided to purchase this top too. It was only $14.50!

Overall I have received 8 items in the mail from Gwynnie Bee. I wore three of the pieces and ending up keeping them. The others either didn’t fit, didn’t look good on me or weren’t up to my quality standards. I carefully read each review on any garment I am interested in adding to my GB closet. I find them to be very helpful. I also like that each order comes with a return label and bag, making returns a cinch. I am going to keep my subscription for a couple more months and see if I continue to like it.

Have you tried Gwynnie Bee or another subscription clothing service?

Make it a rich day!

    I don’t think a subscription clothes service would suit the way I like to buy clothes as often I go for vintage or make my own. I love that dress on you though and that necklace is a lovely creation x

    The maxi dresses are especially great and I love what was done with your vintage brooches!
