What I Wore: Workout Wear

I hope all my American homies had a wonderful Thanksgiving; and I hope everyone else in the world is having a great end of November.  I know it is hard to think of things in those terms considering everything going on in the world, but I have to stay positive or I would just be crying all the time.

Sean took all of last week off so we could work on house projects and the like, but right before his vacation started he came down with a cold.  We got a few things done around the house and hosted a small Thanksgiving dinner, but we were exhausted.  As luck would have it, I caught his cold.  As I type this, I am experiencing my most poopy day of the cold yet.  I am wrapped up in layers of clothing and still freezing, my muscles ache, and my head is super stuffed.  I can't breathe through my nose, which I always forget makes you feel so exhausted.  Sometimes I think not having a thyroid makes the times I get sick feel a little worse.  It also doesn't help that I was in a short-sleeved top and skirt in 40 degree weather yesterday doing outfit photos (it was the only non-raining day for at least a week or so).  I think that was the last straw.  I am hard-headed, but doing my best to rest.

In the meantime, I have a cozy workout outfit I wanted to share.  I've previously reviewed some of my workout gear in my At Home Dressing Room post (I will be doing another one with my Black Friday purchases in the next few weeks).  Today's post includes those previously discussed leggings, along with a new hoodie I acquired.

What I Wore: A Torrid Outlander Collection Review

In today's post, Hailey talks about her love for Outlander and reviews a few pieces from the Torrid Outlander Collection - the Tartan Wrap Bodice Swing Dress, Je Suis Prest Pullover, and Tartan Coat! - #torrid #torridinsider #torridxoutlander #torridoutlander #Outlanderfashion #torridfashion #outlander #tartan #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #winter #fall #style #plussizecasual

I became an Outlander fan quite by accident.  I vaguely knew it was a book from the early 90s, but that is about all I knew.  When the television show started, I saw a few friends post about it on Facebook, but we didn't have the Starz channel and I wasn't going to worry about it.  In between seasons one and two of the show, Sean and I subscribed to Starz to watch Patrick Stewart's show Blunt Talk.  It was at this time we decided to start watching Outlander.  Mid-way through the first episode, I was hooked.  It has a bit of everything: time travel, romance, historical fiction, adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, warfare, mystery, betrayal, kilts, hot sex, etc.!  The list goes on and on.

Despite my inner protests (because I felt silly for liking it so much, because I don't really have time for another obsession, because I thought maybe it made me too predictable in some way), I became more and more obsessed with the show and dove into it all pretty quickly.  All this to say, I am a newer fan of the series but have latched onto it wholeheartedly.  I just started the seventh book.  There are currently eight books of the main story to catch up on, along with extra books involving various characters.

When Torrid announced an Outlander collection, I was overjoyed!  In today's post, I am bringing you reviews of the pieces I chose - the Tartan dress, Tartan coat, and Je Suis Prest sweatshirt.  It was hard to find a compromise between "I WANT IT ALL" and being practical, but such is life. haha  Enjoy!

What I Wore: Getting Aquainted With Vests

In today's post, Hailey reviews the Drape Front Vest from Torrid and Girlfriend Jean from Catherines - two wardrobe basics with loads of potential! - #Torrid #TorridInsider #Catherines #CatherinesStyle #ILoveCatherines #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #winter #fall #summer #style #vest #plussizecasual #lanebryant #crocs

Hello again, y'all.  I am back and attempting to be lots more productive this week.  I am off to a good start.  I hope all of you are finding some kind of peace in this new week.  I know last week, and many months to come, was pretty rough for a lot of us.  I try not to discuss politics on the blog because that stuff tends to anger me (and others) pretty quickly.  I am a very passionate person and hold very strong beliefs on many subjects.  But this is supposed to be a happy place for the most part, so I refrain from discussing matters that could be too polarizing and get my pressure up.

That being said, it is important to me to state that if you are a person of color, LGBT+, Muslim, an immigrant, and/or a woman, you are safe with me.  If you need someone to vent to, if you need help, I will do what is in my power to be an ally to you.  None of you have ever made disparaging remarks about others here on the blog, so I don't really have to tell you that racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and misogyny will not be tolerated in my little space on the internet.  If you see something, say something.

Now on to happier subjects!  After many years of convincing myself that I could never wear vests, I have jumped that hurdle successfully.  In today's post, I review this black drape-front vest from Torrid and Girlfriend Jeans from Catherines.  Also included is a collection of some of the vested outfits I have worn since I started to test out this style of clothing. Enjoy!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Love Story Cardigan

In today's post, Hailey reviews the Love Story Cardigan from Kiyonna, a perfect lightweight layering piece for chilly days! - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #winter #fall #style #plussizecasual

I know it has been pretty hot in other parts of the country lately, so I am not going to assume you are all in the fall mood.  However, it has been chilly enough here to require longer sleeves and light layers, which I am thrilled about!  I love pulling out my fall wardrobe of jeans, boots, and cozy sweaters.

In today's post, I am celebrating fall vibes and reviewing this layering staple from Kiyonna (sizes 10-32)!  The Love Story Cardigan is my October review pick and is a perfect solution for lightweight layering on these somewhat chilly days.  If you love the bellinis (knit & lace), you will definitely approve of this latest cardigan style.

Savannah Trip: Family Time & Sightseeing (Thanksgiving 2015)

In today's post, Hailey reminsces on her trip to Savannah, Georgia to visit her sister, thinking on the quality time she spent with her family and talking about some of the sightseeing in the city they all did together. - #Savannah #SavannahGA #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #RiverStreet #EmmetPark #CityMarket #tangeroutlet

I've finally had a little bit of time to catch up on some photo editing and selecting photos to share on the blog.  I can't believe I am so far behind in sharing my travels with y'all.  Life has just been crazy busy.  I have already shared what I wore on my trip to Savannah during Thanksgiving last year.  Sean and I went down to Georgia to visit my sister and her family for the holiday.

My sister and I are really close, but 3,000 miles between us meant I hadn't seen her in about six years.  My niece was just a baby the last time I was able to travel to Georgia; So it was great fun to spend lots of time with them while we were visiting!  In today's post, I share photos from our family time fun, with a little bit of our Downtown Savannah excursion thrown in.

What I Wore: Mad For Plaid!

Today on the blog, Hailey celebrates the official arrival of fall weather and reviews this Plaid Casual Tunic from Lane Bryant. - #skinnyjeans #plussizeskinnyjeans #LaneBryant #LaneStyle #plaid #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #avaandviv #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #fall #style #plussizecasual

I cannot believe it is almost November already!  The weather has been rainy for a while, but finally started to get cold enough that I need a light jacket when I leave the house.  I adore the days it isn't raining, or isn't raining too much, which also afford me the chance to take outfit photos.

This look is from another early morning errand-running day.  Sean and I had to go get blood work done first thing, and then ran some errands and went to see a movie with the mom-in-law.  I always love plaid, but I especially love wearing plaid in the fall.  There is always a cozy, laid-back feeling to plaid for me, so I tend to gravitate towards plaid shirts with a more relaxed fit. In today's post, I review this tunic from Lane Bryant!
