My Birthday Weekend: Outfits, Adventures, and Sloths! Oh My!

 In today's post, Hailey walks us through her eventful and exciting birthday weekend with a look at what she wore, where she ate, and other fun activities – puzzle-solving with Escapism Portland, meeting Sloths at ZWCC, wine tasting in Hood River, visiting Multnomah Falls, feeding the homeless with Outlandia, and Portland Saturday Market. -  #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #avenue #avaandviv #teespring #outlander #outlandia #portland #pdx #multnomahfalls #hoodriver #cathedralridgewinery #zwcc #escapismportland

My birthday weekend turned out to be a wonderfully adventurous weekend full of surprises and new experiences!  Sean took my birthday off and had planned out a full day of fun.  I just had no idea what he was planning.  It taught me that I have the ability to just go with the flow, but I do have to be mindful about it.  In not knowing what adventure was up next I was forced not to worry about it, therefore keeping my anxiety away in a most refreshing way.

In today's post, I'm talking about all the activities of my exciting weekend and showing you what I wore in the process.  And FYI, there are a lot of photos in this post because I am covering the whole weekend and didn't want to break the post up.

Reviewing Kiyonna's Adriana Cardigan

 In today's post, Hailey reviews the Adriana Cardigan from Kiyonna, a perfect layering piece for breezy summer nights, travel, and transitioning into fall! - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaPlusYou #Kiyonnastyle #Torrid #TorridInsider #Thesecurves #ModCloth #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #fall #spring #summer #style

Happy June!  I hope you are all doing well.  May has been an insanely busy, but very fun month full of love and surprises.  I turned 37 mid-May and celebrated my 9th wedding anniversary just last night.  I usually like when my summer slows down, but I'm looking forward to the events and parties we have planned this season - Bunco-hosting, a joint birthday party, comedy shows, the Highland Games, and MST3K Live!

For today's review, I chose the Adriana Cardigan from Kiyonna.  Before you go thinking I am crazy for wearing a cardigan in the summer, let me say that this lightweight cardigan is perfect for cooler summer evenings, layering for travel, and will transition into the fall very well.  It just started getting warm and sunny during the days here, but nights are still chilly enough for lightweight coverings.  As soon as the sun goes down, I need that extra layer.  Read on for my review of this cardi and fit tips on the rest of my outfit as well.

In today's post Hailey reviews a variety of clothing from recent purchases.  Brands include Kiyonna, Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Hips and Curves. - #Kiyonna #LaneBryant #Torrid #TorridInsider #Hipsandcurves #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing #fittingroom

In part two of the latest round of At Home Fitting Room, I am bringing you some more spring purchases.  I'm trying to get these out as soon as I can while items are still available.  The weather is supposed to start heating up this weekend and, with a busier life schedule, I hope to be able to wear more pieces out and photograph my styling of them for you.  In the previous fitting room post I went over some new-to-me brands, but today's post is all about go-to brands for me - Kiyonna, Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Hips and Curves.  Enjoy!

It is my birthday week!  Sean has a full day of surprises planned on Friday, so I will be sure to post on social media about the day.  I've been trying to figure out what to wear since I have no idea what we will be doing or where we will be going.  It has been a busy week of roller coaster emotions; and it's only Wednesday as I am typing this.  Today is the anniversary of my father's death, so I am just all over the place.

In today's post I am bringing you another At Home Fitting Room because, well, I love deals and I love to shop.  I've been branching out from my usual go-to stores a bit and trying different retailers to test sizing and fit.  Today's post definitely contains some hits and misses, so I hope to leave you with some valuable info.  Enjoy!

What I Wore: Purple Jeans, Styled Two Ways

Purple jeans as practical?  In today's post, Hailey reviews the Ice Dye Ankle Jegging from Slink Jeans, styling them two ways! - #SlinkJeans #Kiyonna #KiyonnaPlusYou #Kiyonnastyle #purplejeans #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #fall #spring #summer #style

I've been looking for a great pair of purple jeans for at least a couple years now.  During Black Friday last year, I purchased the Ice Dye Ankle Jeggings from Slink Jeans.  I first talked about them on the blog in this At Home Dressing Room post, but it has been too chilly for me to wear them practically.  Because they are ankle jeans, normal socks and sneakers wouldn't work for me.  Now that it is warming up, I've been able to start wearing them.  At first I thought purple was a bit impractical, but I have come to realize I have quite a bit that complements them well.

Today's blog post is a review of the jeans, my first purchase from Slink, and a couple of looks with them - one dressier, one casual.  I have also included little reviews of new-to-me shoes and jewelry at the end of this post.  Enjoy!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Elise Flutter Dress

In today's post, Hailey reviews the gorgeous and sexy Elise Flutter Dress from Kiyonna. Whether you are heading to a spring or summer wedding, going on a hot date, or just want to look fabulous because you are, the Elise is a wonderful option! - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaPlusYou #Kiyonnastyle #fluttersleeves #weddingstyle #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #fall #spring #summer #winter #style #weddingguest

Spring is finally here!  Little buds are popping up on the trees in our yard, though it is still cold and rainy.  I will be so happy to welcome sun and breeze!  Wearing jeans and jackets feels so heavy and cumbersome since returning from Hawaii in January.  I want sundresses and maxi skirts and shorts and light tops.

Along with better weather, spring and summer bring prime wedding season; and today's outfit is a perfect wedding guest or event dress.  Even if you just want to look hot for date night or feel amazing for no particular occasion at all, I highly recommend Kiyonna's Elise Flutter Dress.  Read on for my review and all the details!

And through May 1st, Kiyonna is offering $15 off your order of $75 or more using the code TAXTREAT.

What I Wore: ModCloth Stylish Surprise Review

  In today's post, Hailey reviews three items she bought during the ModCloth Stylish Surprise sale - the Sample 3370 Dress, the Vow to Wow Necklace in Light Pink, and the Full Steam Trailhead Jacket. - #Modcloth #StylishSurprise #ModClothStylishSurprise #weddingstyle #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #fall #spring #summer #style

Every once in a while (like maybe twice a year?), ModCloth has a Stylish Surprise sale.  During this limited quantity sale, they offer dresses for $20, apparel/separates for $15, shoes for $10, and jewelry for $5.  As the name implies, it is a mystery what you will receive.  Taking that risk can make me anxious, so I understand if it isn't your thing.  The 3X and 4X sizes sell out really fast, so if you want to get in on the next sale make sure you are following me on my Facebook page for a head's up!

In today's post, I'm going over the three items I bought in my most recent Stylish Surprise order.  You don't receive items that are meant to be a whole outfit, but I lucked out and thought my items made a cute ensemble.
