What I Wore: The Best Anti-Valentine's Day Gift

In today’s post, Hailey reviews the Cold-Shoulder Sweatshirt from Lane Bryant and a pair of Melissa McCarthy Seven7 straight leg jean. - DivineMrsDiva.com #LaneBryant #LaneStyle #MelissaMcCarthy #MelissaMcCarthySeven7 #Crocs #rhinestonemiddlefinger #straightlegjean #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

The weather has been total poop lately.  We had decent weather (sunny but cold) until a couple weeks ago.  Since then it has been rainy and gross, snowy and icy, and back to rainy.  I try to schedule my photoshoot days for less wet weather days, but Mother Nature is not cooperating with me. And surprisingly, there aren't a whole lot of covered locations to shoot up here. #BloggerProblems

I say all this to preface my out-of-the-norm outfit photos from the comfort of my dressing room, instead of in some outdoor location.  I didn't want to wait to show you this outfit because this top is on clearance already. Plus, I wanted to show off one of my Valentine gifts from Sean.

At Home Fitting Room: Dresses & Jackets

In today's At Home Fitting Room post, Hailey reviews dresses and jackets from Torrid, City Chic, Target, and Melissa McCarthy Seven7. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #CityChic #citychiconline #CCworldofcurves #Target #TargetStyle #MelissaMcCarthy #MelissaMcCarthySeven7 #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing #fittingroom

It has been much easier for me to do these smaller groupings of At Home Fitting Room posts.  I still have tops and pants to shoot and show you, but for today's posting I have dresses and jackets!

The usual spiel: I shop too much and want to use my experience to help you navigate brands and sizing. Let's get to it!

What I Wore: Jersey Dress Dreams

In today’s post, Hailey enjoys a few rays of sunshine and reviews the Torrid Multi-Color Floral Print Jersey Knit Button Front Shirt Dress. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #Zerdocean #Amazon #YoursClothing #ThisIsYours #Converse #JCP #NagasakoDesigns #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

We had a short bout of sunshine a couple weeks ago, so I ventured out to take another round of outfit photos.  Snow is falling down incessantly as I write this, so to say I am looking forward to spring (or more likely the case here - summer) is an understatement.  Still, it is nice to have an excuse to stay home and work inside without feeling guilty about it.

Today I am bringing you some floral jersey goodness in the form of this button front dress from Torrid.  I saw it, had to have it, and couldn't wait to wear it - even if it was a bit cold out.

What I Wore on Vacation: Redwoods Road Trip

In her final Redwoods Road Trip post, Hailey shares her road-tripping wardrobe and talks about her go-to travel pieces. – DivineMrsDiva.com #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #roadtrip #california #northerncalifornia #redwoods #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual

This is officially the final post about my Redwoods Road Trip fun.  Truthfully, I'm kind of sad to see it go because it was such a fun and special trip for us.  It was a treat to relive it with all of you, however, and I hope to go back again soon.

I'm an over-packer on a grand scale.  I love to be prepared, but I am also a high maintenance lady who wants all her options.  This was one of the first trips where I felt I did a really good packing job, keeping things minimal and practical.  So take a look at what I brought and wore and why.

Also, Happy Valentine's Day!  Make sure you tell the people you love - be they a partner, a friend, a family member, YOURSELF - just how much you care.  💓

At Home Fitting Room: Lingerie, Sleepwear, Panties, Bras, & Activewear Leggings

In today's post Hailey reviews lingerie, sleepwear, panties, bras, and activewear leggings.  Brands include Hips and Curves, Torrid, Rainbeau Curves, Lane Bryant, and Old Navy. - DivineMrsDiva.com #LaneBryant #Torrid #TorridInsider #HipsandCurves #oldnavy #oldnavyplus #rainbeaucurves #befullyyou #Ilovemyhipsandcurves #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing #fittingroom

I love doing fitting room posts, but seldom have the time to get to an actual store.  I finally had a chance to shoot some pieces for today's At Home Fitting Room post!  I have a problem called "I love to shop", so I am breaking down my hauls into more manageable categories instead of by brand.  Then my problem can help you determine what pieces you like the most.  We have a beneficial friendship, yes?

As stated above, today's post includes lingerie, sleepwear, panties, a bra, and activewear leggings from the following brands: Hips and Curves, Torrid, Old Navy, Rainbeau Curves, and Lane Bryant.
Enjoy!

What I Wore: The Plaid Blazer + Trying Monochrome

In today’s post, Hailey steps out of her comfort zone and tries a monochrome look, and styles the Lane Bryant Blazer in Navy Plaid two ways. (Featuring Lane Bryant Bryant Blazer in Plaid, Super Stretch Skinny Jean in Wine; Catherines Sparkle Stripe Jean, and Torrid Pointelle Knit Peplum Sweater, Comfortiva Cascade Boot) - DivineMrsDiva.com #LaneBryant #LaneStyle #Torrid #TorridInsider #Catherines #CatherinesStyle #Comfortiva #Zulilyfind #ThredUp #secondhandfirst #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #plaid #monochrome

It is very rare that I find a blazer style that fits my body well.  Because of my smaller bust and large hips, I have a problem finding a blazer that fits both.  There is usually way too much fabric on the sides of the bust, or the jacket is just a rectangle, or the arms are too tight, or the sleeves are too long or short, or the jacket is too short and oddly long.  It can be a combination of any of these issues.

But on a recent trip to Lane Bryant to spend my Rewards check (for using my credit card), I decided to try on this cute plaid blazer.  Because why not?  I rarely get a chance to try on clothes in stores these days, so it is still important for me to try new styles and silhouettes when I get the chance.

I was shocked when the blazer fit and looked super cute.  It made me feel adorable, look pulled together, and was a great addition to my wardrobe as a jacket.  I just had to have it!  So today, I'm reviewing new pieces from Lane Bryant in this blazer and Super Stretch Skinny Jean, a Torrid top, and sparkly jeans from Catherines.  I show you a monochrome version of the look, and then change it up with blue jeans.  Enjoy!
