Tips for Elevating a Casual Ensemble + KATU Afternoon Live Show

As a companion to her KATU Afternoon Live segment, Hailey offers up an expansive addition to her tips for elevating a casual ensemble. – #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle #plussizecasual

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being a guest on my local news station's afternoon show, KATU Afternoon Live.  I've been prepping for about a month, narrowing down topics and trying to find just the right pieces to present in my segment.

I chose to talk about elevating a basic jeans/tee/sneakers look because so many of us are just casual folks.  I am a very practical girl that likes to be comfortable.  Casual fits my lifestyle.  But I also love adding color, sparkle, fun and personality, feminine details like ruffles and lace, and other interesting embellishments to my ensembles.  I always have people ask me how they can be more fashionable and look cute, while still being comfortable.

I hope you enjoy the video and find my tips for elevating your look helpful!

What I Wore: Sparkles, Please!

Today Hailey talks about her favorite features to look for in clothing that elevate a casual ensemble.  She also reviews her favorite style of Avenue top! - #Avenue #AvePlus #ShareTheLove  #MelissaMcCarthy #MelissaMcCarthySeven7 #Rockport #CobbHillShoes #CobbHill #TargetStyle #SugarFixByBaubleBar #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

Today's post features a couple of new pieces to both myself and the blog.  I'm happy to announce that I will be on a local news program next week talking about how to elevate a casual look.  I'm really excited to talk about what I love, and terrified to be on television and do something so new to me. (But also really excited about that too!!)  I'll keep you posted via social media and here on the blog for all the details and video.

If you have been reading the blog for a while, you know how much I love being casual and comfortable. You also know how much I love color, sparkle, and pulling together looks that make me feel super cute.  So today's post is a prime example of how I like to elevate a jeans/top/sneakers ensemble, while keeping true to my personality and need for comfort.

What I Wore: The Oversized Cardigan

As an example of practicing what she preaches, today Hailey is trying out the oversized cardigan, a look she was very wary of prior to trying it on.  Just try it on!! - #AmazonFashion #AmazonFashionFinds #Torrid #TorridInsider #TheseCurves #LaneBryant #LaneStyle #Comfortiva #JuicyCouture #Kohls #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

I've had a cold for a week now, but finally started feeling more like myself today.  I am seldom sick, so when I am it is so frustrating.  I hate not feeling productive, but Sean made me rest and be still.

It is still sweater weather in my neck of the woods, so today I'm talking about trying out the oversized cardigan trend.  I first saw this particular sweater on Amanda of Fashion, Love, and Martinis.  We wear similar sizes even though our bodies are shaped different, so I figured I would give it a try.  I'm not a huge fan of oversized pieces.  As you know though, I am always pushing you to try everything on and keep an open mind.  I practice what I preach.  So read on for my review of the various elements of this look and my feelings on the oversized cardigan.

Reviewing Kiyonna's Weekend Wrap Dress

In today’s post, Hailey is channeling spring with a review of the Weekend Wrap Dress from Kiyonna. - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaCurves #Comfortiva #CharmingCharlie #CCStyle #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle #wrapdress

After almost a week in Seattle for Emerald City Comic Con (which thoroughly exhausted me), I'm back with another Kiyonna review!  I chose the Weekend Wrap Dress for this month's review because I love the colorful print and kimono-style look of the dress.  Kiyonna is always offering the classic wrap style in a variety of colors and prints, with lovely added details.  This dress is no exception. Read on for my review of this spring must-have!
