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. - DivineMrsDiva.com #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

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. – DivineMrsDiva.com #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. - DivineMrsDiva.com #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....

In The Fitting Room: Catherines (Fall 2015)

 In The Dressing Room: Catherines - #Catherines #fallfashion #plussize #fittingroom #fashionblogger

I'm back with another look in the dressing room featuring some of Catherines (0X to 5X) new fall arrivals.  The colors of the new fall line-up are so gorgeous.  I stopped in a couple weeks ago and was struck by so many pretty autumnal hues of warm reds, oranges, browns, and greens, along with great jeweled toned offerings!  I'm loving the plaid and animal prints and three-quarter sleeves.  Seriously y'all, when is the weather going to be cool enough for me to wear fall clothing???

Getting all of these photos in order took a lot longer than I had anticipated, hence this post going up so late in the week.  This weekend marks Labor Day Weekend, with lots of sales going on.  Catherines has $15 off of jeans and pants both in store and online, as well as online only sales that include 70% off of clearance, $50 off $100 and $100 off $200, and Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Jewelry! (Use code LABORDAYCA)
