A rare Monday post treat!

If you are anything like me, you are gearing up for all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales this week.  While I'm holiday shopping for others this time of year, I also like to buy myself a few things as well.  Scoring awesome deals on items I love is always at the top of my list.  I love sharing these finds with all of you, so I am thrilled to share this exclusive early shopping event with you today!

As you know, I adore Kiyonna's clothing!  As a member of their Blogger Brigade, I have the opportunity to wear and review their clothing on a regular basis.  It is always extremely well-made and fits beautifully.  You can check out all of my Kiyonna review posts here.

Kiyonna is getting a jump start on Black Friday deals by offering a selection of dresses to all of you for only $40!!  Special pricing is valid on select styles only and quantities are limited, so snatch these styles up while you can.*  In today's post, I am reviewing one of the dresses up for grabs during this $40 Dress Extravaganza - the Luring Lace Dress. 

* No further discounts or coupons will be applied to these specially priced items. No coupon code necessary.

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.
