Hey, y'all!  Today I am bringing you an At Home Fitting Room post with a hodgepodge collection of clothing I have purchased since Black Friday.  A majority of it is still available online, so it seems like a great time to bring you a look and review of my shopping addiction.

Black Friday brings loads of deals, as you know.  I was looking for specific pieces for my upcoming vacation, but managed to snag some great deals on things I had on my Wish List and items from brands I haven't purchased from before.  This is always exciting for me because that means I get to share my new knowledge with you as well.  I actually went a little crazy shopping over the holidays, but I did get some amazing deals for my efforts.

Speaking of vacation, this will be my last post for a couple of weeks because I am heading off to Hawaii!  You can keep up with my adventures over on Instagram.  I'm writing this post with whiskey in hand and trying not to freak out about my mile-long To Do list.  Toiletries are packed, but clothing and shoes and accessories are not.  EEK!  So grab a cocktail and enjoy the latest edition of At Home Fitting Room!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Indie Flair Maxi Dress

In today's post Hailey reviews the Indie Flair Maxi Dress from Kiyonna, a versatile piece for every season!- #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #winter #spring #summer #fall #style #maxidress

I adore maxi dresses, but seldom remember to pull them out in the fall and winter.  I associate them so much with warm, breezy weather and forget to utilize their potential year round.  In today's post, I am rocking the maxi in winter and reviewing the Indie Flair Maxi Dress from Kiyonna.

We have had nothing but snow, wind, ice, and rain lately.  I hope all of you dealing with this wintery weather are staying safe and warm!  It has been annoyingly frustrating juggling our pre-vacation errands and prior scheduled engagements with all the snow and snow-related business closures.  We've stayed home and off the roads as much as possible.  And in this case, Amazon Prime is a friggin' must-have!  I've been able to purchase all of my last minute toiletries and travel items via Amazon without having to worry about braving the cold.  But I digress....

Crazy wind forced me to move inside for this shoot.  It was so cold out my bones were hurting and I started crying.  I have never done that before.  Still, we found a warm office building nearby so we didn't have to cancel our photo-taking plans.  Enjoy!

Snow Day!

Snow Day in PDX - #snow #snowday #nature #pdx #portland #portlandor

Hello, beautiful people!

It started snowing Tuesday night and left us with seven to ten inches of it.  Some places around here got up to fifteen inches!  This is definitely not common in this area and, considering places shut down with an inch or so of snow in the forecast, totally throws off normal life.  I didn't even know it was going to snow because I have been burying my head in all things vacation prep.  Good news is that the actual vacation activities are planned, which gives me a sense of peace.  I get really anxious when things aren't planned out.  I like knowing what is going to happen.  I am not a by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl.  I also spent extra time lately making jewelry and hair accessories for my trip as well.  Now that the Christmas decor is put away, I can start packing everything!

I ventured out into the snowy yard on Wednesday to take some photos and thought I would share.  This is also the first time I was able to take my new Crocs rain boots for a spin.  The snow was a bit deep out front so snow found its way into my boots, but other than that they did the job.  Enjoy!

What I Wore: Plaid About It

In today's post, Hailey reviews the Strappy Foxy Cami from Torrid and Plaid Boyfriend Shirt from Lane Bryant.- #Torrid #TorridInsider #LaneBryant #LaneStyle #plaid #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #winter #spring #fall #style

Welcome to 2017!

In today's post, I am reviewing the Strappy Foxy Cami from Torrid and the Plaid Boyfriend Shirt from Lane Bryant.  I bought these pieces in the fall and wore them together for Friendsgiving in November.  As you know, life has been pretty busy, so I was finally able to take photos when we were stuck at home during a snow storm.

Just to keep y'all informed, posts will be kind of sporadic through February.  I am working on a better work schedule for myself to ensure I can have time to blog and time for all the other projects I need  to work on.  Things have piled up on the back burner for so long, I have pretty much spent the past two weeks trying to whittle that list down. I am also juggling these back logged projects with trying to finalize our vacation plans and all that entails (packing, making sure Finn is taken care of, cleaning the house, etc etc).  In the meantime, I am working on getting organized so I can be a more efficient blogger.  I would like to do more posts than I have been doing, but I still can never get extra projects done with the current schedule.  It will take some time to work out the kinks, but I am hoping things can settle into a good routine and compromise between everything I want to do and what I actually have time to do.

My goal for 2017 is to not be so hard on myself.
