What I Wore: Wine About It

Last week I posted about the fun wine tour my friends and I went on recently.  Last year during our tour, the weather was pretty warm.  I was thrilled that it was much more mild this year, but it is still an event you want to dress comfy for.  Between being out for eight hours and hopping in and out of a van, I require pants and comfort for my wine tour outfit.  Today's post has pieces I have talked about previously, just worn together for the first time.

Our 2nd Annual Wine Tour in Oregon's Willamette Valley

Hailey and friends took their 2nd annual wine tour in Oregon's Willamette Valley.  See where they went in today's blog post. - DivineMrsDiva.com #backcountrywinetours #winetour #portland #portlandor #oregon #willamettevalley #stoller #argyle #maysara #brooks #winery

My friend Nigel and I have birthdays a couple weeks apart.  Last year, we decided to gather some friends together for a wine tour in celebration instead of having separate birthday parties.  It was something we talked about doing for a few years, so we were very happy to finally plan it all out.  I talked about our day trip tasting wines last year on the blog.  We had such a fantastic time that we immediately planned to do it all again this year.

What I Wore: Black and Blue

A couple weeks ago, Sean and I ventured out to a friend's award ceremony and celebratory dinner afterwards.  I am so proud of my friend Felis.  She received a prestigious racial justice award celebrating her accomplishments in teaching and advocating on many racial and social justice issues.  It was so wonderful to see her being honored and to see all the love and praise given to her and her accomplishments.

I knew I wanted to be a little more dressed up for the occasion, so I pulled out my other Apt. 9 Kohl's dress that I hadn't worn yet.  I know some of you bought your own after seeing my posts.  I am so happy that you all are loving this dress as much as I do.  Yes, I styled it pretty much the same way, but I thought I would share with y'all anyway.  When a dress can combine comfort, cuteness, and versatility, I want to tell you about it as much as possible.

In The Fitting Room: Kohl's

I've been on a fitting room roll lately.  Thank you all for inspiring me and motivating me to just go get to it!  After my positive and impromptu birthday trip to Kohl's (and your positive reactions to the dresses I bought), I decided to go back and try on as many things as I could.  Today's post is all about my fitting room adventure and first impressions of the things I tried.  Enjoy!

What I Wore: Southwest By Northwest

 Hailey combats the heat in this Embroidered Challis Sundress from Torrid. - DivineMrsDiva.com  #TorridInsider #Torrid #CrocsSandal #Crocs #YoursClothing #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #summer #style #plussizecasual

The weekend before last was over 100 degrees.  Of course, I had plans (and thus had to leave the house) on the hottest friggin' day.  Luckily, my scheduled activities were indoor ones, but the heat still makes me cranky.  I decided to bust out my newest sundress for staying cool and cute in the dastardly weather.  You may remember this dress from a recent fitting room post.  I now present it to you styled and functional. I stood out in the horrible heat to get these photos for you guys, so ah, you're welcome! hahaha :-P  I wouldn't do it for just anybody.

At Home Fitting Room: Pajamas, Activewear, Panties, Lingerie, Swimwear

In today's reader requested post, Hailey talks review and fit of pajamas, activewear, swimwear, lingerie, and panties from her own wardrobe. - DivineMrsDiva.com #LaneBryant #Torrid #TorridInsider #OldNavy #HipsandCurves #fittingroom #plussizefittingroom #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #activewear #pajamas #swimwear #lingerie #panties #plussizecasual

Today's post is another installment of At Home Fitting Room.  This is where I try on things I have bought and tell you all about them.  Some of these pieces are a little older (like Christmas clearance) and a lot are rather new.  In fact, most of these are still available on the various websites.  I still wanted to show you things that aren't available because the stores I buy from usually come out with various versions of a style throughout the year.  So even if something isn't available, I hope it still helps you with figuring out fit.

I have the items divided into categories: Pajamas, Activewear, Swimwear, Lingerie, and Panties.  You guys wanted to know about cute options, so I went for it.  I've sprinkled extra information throughout on additional styles I love and gravitate towards.  As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  Let's get to it!

What I Wore: Reviewing Kiyonna's Twirling In Tulle Skirt

Hailey celebrated her 8th wedding anniversary in COLOR and reviews the Kiyonna Twirling In Tulle Skirt in Melon Marvel on the blog! - DivineMrsDiva.com #KiyonnaStyle #Kiyonna #KiyonnaPlusYou #Torrid #TorridInsider #charmingcharlie #dressbarn #catherines #catherinesstyle #sofft #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #SpringStyle #weddingstyle #summerstyle #whattoweartoawedding #tulleskirt

Hello, everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I cannot believe it is June already!  Sean and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on May 31st.  As we love to do, we went back to the location of our nuptials, McMenamins Edgefield.  Edgefield is a fun place with a wonderful restaurant, pub, bars, winery, golf course, distillery, hotel, concert lawn, gardens, glass-blower and potter, spa and salon, etc.  There is always something to do.  It has become quite a popular destination for folks.

I wanted to wear something festive and special for the evening.  What says special more than a poofy tulle skirt?  Kiyonna sent me the Twirling In Tulle skirt in their latest color, Melon Marvel.  In today's post, I am reviewing this skirt and loading you up with photos of my colorful, celebratory outfit.  I loved this look and how the photos turned out, I just couldn't narrow it down any more.  Enjoy!

At Home Fitting Room: Lane Bryant, Torrid, Avenue, Old Navy

As promised, today's post is a fitting room post with a twist.  I haven't had a lot of time to shop in stores or do in-store fitting room posts.  However, I have bought some pieces here and there in the last few months.  I feel like I shop way ahead of the weather, so it usually takes some time before I wear the pieces in an outfit post on the blog.  Inevitably this means that most things are sold out by the time I post it.  I loathe when that happens because I hate disappointing you guys.  So if I see that I am doing a bit of shopping, I will continue to gather those things for a fitting room post at home.

I asked y'all on Facebook if you also wanted to see workout clothes, pajamas, and lingerie.  The answer was 'yes!', so those will be in an upcoming post.  For today, I offer you a look at pieces from Lane Bryant, Torrid, Avenue, and Old Navy. Enjoy!

What I Wore: Coral Comfort

 Reviewing this great summer dress from Kohl's!  Hailey is wearing the Apt. 9 Printed High-Low Hem Dress and Crocs Anna Ankle Strap Gladiator Sandal. - DivineMrsDiva.com  #highlow #Apt9 #Kohls #CrocsSandal #Crocs #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #summer #style #plussizecasual

A couple weeks ago I posted about my impromptu fitting room trips to Lane Bryant and Kohl's.  I bought a couple dresses at Kohl's in the same high-low style, just in two different patterns.  The following weekend, my wonderful mom-in-law took Sean and I out to dinner for an early anniversary celebration, so I donned the coral dotted dress.  These dresses are still on sale, so today's post is a review of my new dress and sandals with better photos of the style.  Enjoy!
