What I Wore: Where are my Rose-Colored Glasses?

I've been a bit obsessed with everything Torrid lately.  I cannot get enough of their new crop of arrivals (which they update *almost* on the daily).  I love the cheery colors and patterns, cute but casual aesthetic, and thinking on spring fashion.  I've recently made quite a few purchases at Torrid, including this striped dress and lots of sexy undies.  (Let me know if you want a review of those.) Today I will be reviewing this rosy top and reflecting a little on why these photos almost went straight to my trash bin, and why I let them stay.

What I Wore: Adventures in Mixing Prints

Adventures in Mixing Prints - #GwynnieBee #ShareMeGB #Jete #psootd #plussize #plussizefashion #styleblogger #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #psblogger

Ah, family! Am I right?  Some relative drama impeded on my productivity this week, making it hard to focus on my blogging tasks and just pissing me off in general.  This whole week has been a little weird in that way.  Bottom line, sometimes you just have to realize that certain people can't, or shouldn't, be around each other.

You know what should mix though? Prints! Choppy transitions aside, I love a good print mixing ensemble.  Looks that combine bright colors and graphic prints make a look feel fresh and unexpected to me.  I don't often try my hand at mixing it up in that way, but I have done it a couple times on the blog.  (I'm not counting the mixed patterned dresses because the work was done for me in that case.)  When this colorful Jete peplum top came in my Gwynnie Bee package, I decided it was a prime opportunity to shake things up.

What I Wore: Un-boycotting Old Navy

Hailey is wearing the Performance Fleece Zip Vest from Old Navy, 3/4 Sleeve Pocket Tee and skinny jeans from Lane Bryant, and Reebok DMX Ride shoes. - #OldNavy #LaneBryant #Reebok #OldNavyStyle #plussize #plussizeblogger #psblogger #psootd #plussizecasual #styleblogger #plussizefashion

I don't like to mention too many negatives here on the blog because I like to keep it a light, fun place to talk about fashion and other things that make me happy.  There is so much negative in the world, and even in our own lives and online, that adding to it is not something I want to do.  We all have to vent on occasion, but I typically reserve that for pestering my friends. haha 

I digress.  While I've mentioned in the past that I don't shop at Old Navy and have been boycotting them for myself for quite some time (years, actually), I've made a few purchases recently that have made me a little less wary of buying from them.  In today's post, I am going to talk about some of my recent purchases, including this vest, and review pieces from this look.  It is a delightfully casual collection of comfortable separates that I wore on a rare sunny day to walk Finn for the first time.  (To my surprise, he did really well on a leash!)

What I Wore: Hyped for Stripes and Flirty Florals

Hailey is wearing the Striped Floral Skater Dress from Torrid. -  #Torrid #TorridInsider #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #plussizecasual

I've been so overwhelmed by all the pretties over at Torrid lately.  Plus, they have had great sales.  It is becoming increasingly more difficult to keep my wallet in my purse.  About a month ago, right after I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I ended up ordering a tee with the movie characters on it.  During this time, Torrid was having a crazy sale that led me to also buying this dress in that same order.  And I'm so glad I did!  Read on for my review...

What I Wore: Sparkly Curves

 Hailey is wearing the Kiyonna Boucle Pencil Skirt for a shimmery and sexy date night look. - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ValentinesStyle #DateNight

Oh my!  What is that strange ball of light in the sky?? hahaha  That is how long it has been since I have seen the sun.  It has rained and rained and rained for at least a month now.  So with the day of sun, I got all dolled up and took some outfit photos.

First up is this gorgeous pencil skirt from Kiyonna!  I put together a snazzy date night outfit to inspire those of you who like something not red or pink for Valentine's Day, or just want to strut your sparkly curves for any occasion.  Read on for my review....

Road Trip Makeup: My Everyday Look & The Products I Took (w/ a video tutorial!)

  Road Trip Makeup: My Everyday Look & The Products I Took (w/ video tutorial) - #makeuptutorial #travelmakeup #psbloggers #plussizeblogger #beautyblogger #makeupessentials #Colourpop #LoracUnzipped #UrbanDecayNakedPalette #ItCosmetics

Back in September, Sean and I took a road trip down to Northern California.  We spent some time among the Redwoods and breathed in the salty ocean air along the coast.  It was amazing!!  I'm still looking forward to sharing that adventure with you once I get my pictures edited. (I know, I know.  It has been months!  But we have been go, go, go and crazy busy since then.)

For now, I'm going to show you the makeup I took with me on the trip, along with a video tutorial on how I created my everyday look on vacation.  I think you know by now that I am a total makeup junkie.  I own A LOT of makeup and like to have it all at my fingertips for options.  I am also high-maintenance and an over-packer.  Considering these truths about me, it was very hard to pick a select few makeup items to pack for our week long trip.  I decided to challenge myself to greatly limit my usual amount and to wear less makeup than I normally would.  I don't know that I necessarily wore less on a regular basis, but it felt like less.  And in choosing a pared down, basic look (for me), it made getting ready a lot faster and easier. 

Read on for my list of must-have products and check out my tutorial....

What I Wore: Colorful Pixelated Floral Tunic via Gwynnie Bee

 Hailey is wearing the Jete Geo-Floral Hi-Lo Tunic from Gwynnie Bee, Lane Bryant Genius Fit Skinny Jeans. - #GwynnieBee #ShareMeGB #Jete #psootd #plussize #plussizefashion #styleblogger #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #psblogger

Winter means rain, rain, and more rain here in the Pacific Northwest.   While the rain means it is also green and super pretty out in nature, it also means it is very difficult for me to take decent outfit photos.  I try to do them away from home when I can, but the weather has not been letting up enough.  I have a few new outfits to photograph on Saturday that I am looking forward to sharing with you all.  Today, I bring you another Gwynnie Bee look from the comfort of my dressing room.
