I'm on vacation!!


Well folks, the time as finally come!! ✈️⠀
⠀
I'm leaving on a jet plane, and I WILL be back again.  Until then, I just wanted to give a head's up that there won't be any new blog posts or videos while I'm gone.  Life is way too busy for me to have planned stuff out like that.  I do have some Insta posts scheduled out throughout my trip, but I will also be posting during when I get a chance and have WiFi.
⠀
This is a HUGE, EPIC ADVENTURE for Sean and I.  I'm excited to share it with you.  I'll try to keep up on Instagram, InstaStories, and maybe even a short post now and then here, so you can travel along with me.   😃

What I Wore: Birthday Princess

 In today’s post, Hailey reviews the gorgeous Torrid Green Floral Challis Maxi Dress she bought for her birthday this year. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #summer #springstyle #summerstyle #naturalizer #ebayfinds #maxidress

Hi!!  I am running around like a mad person trying to get everything rounded up and finalized for my BIG EPIC JOURNEY, as I am calling it.  Obviously, I never got around to finishing up ALL the post series' I wanted to, but life always gets so busy.

I have a few outfit and fashion posts to get up before my trip, but then I will be off for about a month while I'm gone.  I really, really need this break.

Today's post is a look at my birthday dress!  I bought this dress at the new Torrid outlet in Troutdale when it opened in April.  I went shopping with my mother-in-law that day, and we had a very wonderful and productive day finding items we needed at the outlet mall.  I was happy to finally have a chance to wear it to my birthday dinner!

What I Wore: A Whole New World

In today’s post, Hailey reviews the Her Universe Disney Jasmine Purple Maxi Dress from Torrid’s Aladdin Collection. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #summer #springstyle #summerstyle #comfortiva #lanebryant #maxidress #aladdin #disney #charmingcharlie

Sometimes I'll just see something online and know I HAVE to have it!  That's how I felt about the Her Universe Disney Jasmine Purple Maxi Dress from Torrid's Aladdin collection.  Torrid posted it on their Instagram before it was even on the website.  It was so gorgeous, and I knew I needed it.

I stalked the website day and night for almost a week before the dress was finally added to online stock.  I snatched it up immediately!  It is very beautiful in person, so I am happy I finally get to share it with you!

Americana Looks with Catherines

In today’s #sponsored post, Hailey reviews three Catherines looks inspired by the classic Americana of summertime, featuring the Embroidered Gauze Peasant Top, Suprema Cami with Lace, Printed Flat Front Capri, Good Soles Double-Strap Flip Flop Sandal, Tiered Maxi Dress with Embroidery, Cherry Blossom Duet Top, Clearwater Slider Bracelet, and Good Soles Perforated-Strap Wedge Sandal! - DivineMrsDiva.com #CatherinesStyle #Catherines #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #summer #summerstyle #americana
* This post is sponsored by Catherines.  It features gifted items that I selected.

I'm back with another Catherines collab, a trio of Americana looks inspired by summer barbecues, picnics, and days out in the sun!  It is the time of year when red, white, and blue become extremely prevalent in fashion.  As summer fast approaches, I find these colors of Americana immediately make me think of long mid-summer days and all the outdoor activities that go with them.

I put together three outfits featuring current styles from Catherines.  Let me know how you would wear them, and what your favorite pieces are!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress

In today’s post, Hailey reviews the Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress from Kiyonna, this beautiful knit dress is perfect for any summer soiree but can definitely transition into fall. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #holiday #wrapdress #springstyle #summerstyle

It's less than a month until my big "Epic Adventure", as I am calling it.  Things are overwhelming, and I still have a ton of stuff to get done between now and then.  But it will be such an exciting trip once it gets started!!

In the meantime, I'm working on lots of blog posts, YouTube videos, and trip-planning like the anxious over-achiever that I am.  And also, I'm finding excuses to enjoy the newly sunny weather.  It still isn't too hot, which makes me happy and way less cranky.

I had the privilege of enjoying the weather over the weekend when I wore this beautiful Kiyonna dress out and about!  The Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress is an incredibly soft knit, true wrap dress that comes in two gorgeous prints.  Read on for my review and notes on fit and the like.  You know how we do here!  (Also, I really like the way these photos turned out and how the dress looks with my hair, so I didn't narrow the photos down too hardcore.)

High School Reunion: Saying Goodbye

In today’s post, it is Hailey’s last day of her reunion trip.  She shares her outfit-of-the-day and looks back on the fond memories she made during this important journey. – DivineMrsDiva.com #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #augusta #northaugusta #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussize #psootd #Torrid #TorridInsider #summerstyle #plussizecasual #plussizefashion #plussizeclothing

We have finally made it to the last day of my reunion trip home to South Carolina.  If you need to get caught up, you can read about my visit with my sister in Savannah, fun at Homecoming, the Meat N Greet Picnic, the Reunion Party, Picture Day on Sunday, and cheering on my friend Brandon at his gig!  WHEW!

Today's post is a pretty chill look at our last day in town before heading back to my sister's in Savannah and on back home.  I took some outfit photos at the Riverwalk (where I had plenty of childhood memories to look back on), had lunch with Brandon, and played Putt-Putt with Sean before our two hour drive to Savannah.  It was a bittersweet day of reflection, goodbyes, and a full heart happy with love and reconnection.
