What I Wore: Kiyonna Gives - Look Good While Doing Good

 Hailey is wearing the Kiyonna Bohemian Crochet Bellini in Blushing Pink.  Through November 3rd, 2105, Kiyonna will donate 50% of retail sales of this item to Breast Cancer Angels. - #Kiyonna #Kiyonnagives #KiyonnaPlusYou #breastcancer #plussize #plussizefashion #psbloggers #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #pink

As you are probably aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  It is always important to encourage awareness of issues to look out for and to encourage women to take care of their bodies.  Do your regular breast exams and don't skip check-ups, as early detection is key. 

Kiyonna is once again encouraging us to "Look good while doing good" by offering the Bohemian Crochet Bellini in a pretty pale pink. Through November 3, Kiyonna will donate 50% of retail sales of this pink bellini to Breast Cancer Angels.  This non-profit organization in California provides groceries, gas, day-to-day items, legal service, and more, to help patients who are undergoing cancer treatments, as well as their families.

Read on for my review and to see how I styled my bellini.  For more breast cancer facts, visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Plus Size Lingerie: Where I Find It + Hips and Curves and Lane Bryant Review

Plus Size Lingerie: Where I Find It + Hips and Curves and Lane Bryant Review - #plussize #plussizelingerie #styleblogger #plussizeblogger #psblogger #hipsandcurves #lanebryant #torrid #curvygirllingerie

Let's talk about sexy stuff!
It's only in the last few years - as I have come to appreciate, respect, and love my body even more - that investing in cuter/sexier/better quality lingerie pieces has become a little obsession of mine.  The less hangups I have about my body, the more fun it is to dress up in lacy items that make me feel super sexy.  Even if you aren't totally at peace with your body, dressing it up in items that make you feel beautiful and sexy (as with every day clothing) can really feed your sense of confidence and help in changing your mindset from negative to positive! 

When I started looking to buy items from companies like Hips and Curves, I did a lot of looking online to try to find a review of items from someone my size.  I wanted to know how things really fit on a similar body.  Finding that review was nearly impossible, which is why I decided to buy a pair of thigh highs and write my own review.  Read on for reviews of a bra and panties from Hips and Curves and a very sexy pair of panties from Lane Bryant.  I have also included my current favorite picks from four of my go-to lingerie retailers, along with info on sizing and fit and current sale promotions.

This post has been a BIG labor of love and has taken me many, many, many hours to complete.  I hope it provides you with helpful information.  If you have any questions at all, please leave a comment on the post or contact me via email. :-)

What I Wore: BB Dakota Hogan Dress via Gwynnie Bee

I'm back!

My week off during vacation turned into two weeks because I had so much to catch up once I got back home.  Our road trip through Oregon and Northern California was so much fun!  We had amazing weather and saw so many beautiful sights!  I cannot wait to show all of you photos and talk about our experiences. (Side Note: I took 1,700 photos with my actual camera while on our trip, so it will take a bit of time to get them all blog-ready.)

In the meantime, I am starting back slowly with a simple outfit post.  I'm trying to juggle putting up more fall outfits as well as catching up to summer looks I haven't had time to post yet.  This one feels like a great transition outfit and makes me feel sexy like LuAnne, of Weesha's World, because she is fond of showcasing her amazing legs, something I do not often do.

What I Wore: The Captivating Crochet Wrap Dress by Kiyonna

 Hailey is wearing the Captivating Crochet Wrap Dress by Kiyonna. - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaPlusYou #plussize #psootd #styleblogger #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #wrapdress

In the last year or so, I have been trying to push my boundaries and try new things.  This not only applies to fashion, but life experiences, speaking up for myself, trying new food, listening to new music, etc.  One of the things that I have tried in the past year is the wrap dress.  It is such a great staple in a wardrobe for a quick and easy ensemble that can be simply accessorized.  I was very averse to them because I could never find one that looked good on me.  If you have followed the blog for a while then you know the Velvet Luxe Maxi changed the game for me.  (You can also check me out in the All Work and Play Wrap Dress here.)

When I saw this gorgeous wrap dress come up on Kiyonna's website, I was so drawn to the fluttery sleeves and pretty teal color.  Read on for my review....

What I Wore: Jete via Gwynnie Bee

Hailey is wearing the Jete Violet Tie Dye Tank Dress via Gwynnie Bee and Lane Bryant Anorak Jacket. - #Jete #GwynnieBee #ShareMeGB #psootd #plussize #LaneBryant #styleblogger #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #fallfashion

As you know, I have been a subscriber to Gwynnie Bee for quite a while.  I love it as a means to try new brands, test sizing and fit, and see garments close-up that I might not otherwise have the opportunity to try.  It also gives me more ways of styling looks to show all of you since I don't actually have to buy all the clothes.  (Although, sometimes I love a piece so much that I do buy it from Gwynnie Bee at a discounted price!)

What I Wore: Falling in Love with Catherines Denim

Catherines Denim Debut: Hailey is wearing the Right Fit Jean (Moderately Curvy) and Girlfriend Jean from @CatherinesPlus. – #catherines #ilovecatherines #denimdebut #plussize #plusfashion #fallfashion #denim #plussizefashion #styleblogger #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #psootd

Denim is always a wardrobe must-have any time of year.  A great pair of jeans is versatile and practical, but often times hard to come by.  Catherines has launched their new denim collection featuring fabulous and versatile styles in regular and petite lengths.  The Knit Jean offers the look of jeans with the comfort of leggings and comes in a variety of colors, including olive green and scarlet.  The True Stretch Jean is indeed stretchy and comfortable denim (I've previously worn mine on the blog here), available in dark and medium washes, trendy dark acid wash, and ombre!  The Right Fit Jean comes in Curvy and Moderately Curvy fits with a timeless straight leg silhouette.  The Curvy fit is for those of us with hips that are much larger in comparison to our waists, while the Moderately Curvy fit is best for those of us with only a slight curve from the waist to hips.

In today's post, I am sporting the Moderately Curvy Right Fit Jean and Girlfriend Jean for two comfortable, fun, and fall-ready ensembles.  Read on for my reviews!

What I Wore: Casual Geekery

Hailey is wearing the Torrid Star Wars Kiss Raglan Tee, Lane Bryant Genius Fit Bermuda Shorts, Reebok YourFlex Trainette 3.0, and Lane Bryant Wicking Active Socks. - #Torrid #TorridInsider #LaneBryant #fashionblogger #plussizeblogger #psootd #casualstyle #plussize

I typically dress in what I refer to as "dressier casual" because I like comfortable looks with special embellishments and a bit of structure.  But sometimes I am just hardcore casual.  There are certain locations, events, or frames of mind where I just need to be in laid-back, easy-to-wear pieces.  A couple weekends ago, Sean and I attended a company picnic at a local park, so I donned shorts and a tee for the occasion.  Read on for my review of these casual items and to see more photos....
