At Home Fitting Room: Tops

In today's post Hailey reviews tops from brands Torrid, Lane Bryant, JCPenney, Maurices, and Old Navy. - DivineMrsDiva.com #LaneBryant #Torrid #TorridInsider #JCPenney #Xersion #SelfEsteem #oldnavy #oldnavyplus #maurices #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.  Today, I am showing you various tops I have collected over the winter to present.  Some items are no longer available, but I still think seeing sizes and info helps.

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: ThredUp Finds & Universal Standard Review

In today’s post, Hailey reviews a few thrifted ThredUp purchases as well as the Seine Jean from Universal Standard. - DivineMrsDiva.com #UniversalStandard #USintheWild #ThredUp #Secondhandfirst  #Torrid #TorridInsider #TheseCurves #Crocs #Coach #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

I'm terrible at coming up with titles for my posts.  It is my least favorite part about writing on the blog.  Today's title is all practical and no frills.  I put together a slightly layered spring look for one of our first sunny days this season.  It was finally warm enough to wear this short sleeve Torrid top that I found on ThredUp but, because of the wind, cool enough I needed to wear jeans.  So I'm also reviewing these Universal Standard jeans as well.

Friday Feels: Reunited

On working through my issues, talking of personal stories and lessons, and giving you more insight into who I am.  This Friday Feels I talk about what put me in survival mode and how I realized I need break out of surviving and work on thriving. – DivineMrsDiva.com #fridayfeels #personalessay #survivalmode #personalissues

Time for the second ever Friday Feels post.  I've been contemplating, working through, and trying to sort my thoughts for this post.  It comes way later than intended for those reasons.

It won't happen every week, but when I am feeling so inclined to work though issues or share more personal stories or feelings, it will be on a Friday.  I feel like I'm taking a huge leap because I don't often share these types of feelings with anyone other than my husband Sean.  It may be messy.  It won't always have a tidy ending or any resolution, but I think I'm ready.

So without further ado....

What I Wore: Springing Into Television

In today’s post, Hailey puts her formula for a casual ensemble to work, donning a colorful spring outfit for her first Afternoon Live appearance. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #Slink #SlinkJeans  #CobbHill #RoseGold #InPink #LaneBryant #OldNavy #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #spring #springstyle

For my first Afternoon Live appearance, I talked about elevating a casual look.  My tips were all about the little things I do to change up a "jeans and a tee" outfit to make it something cute and fashionable, but still comfortable and casual.  This formula is one I use when I get myself dressed, so I wanted to wear a springy ensemble that really utilized every one of my tips.

In today's post, I'm showing you a closer look at that outfit, along with reviews of the new-to-us items.

Photo Journal: Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival- Woodburn, OR

Today, Hailey offers a photo journal of a lovely evening out at Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon! – DivineMrsDiva.com  #portland #pdx #woodenshoetulips #tulips #tulipfestival #woodenshoetulipfestival #tulipfarm #woodburnor

A little over a week ago, Sean and I decided to go on a little adventure to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon.  I really needed to be rehearsing for my news segment, but I also really wanted to get out of the house.  The weather was surprisingly beautiful, so we packed up Finn and Dobby and headed out.

Today's post is a photo-heavy journal with pictures from our little evening out.  I'm definitely happy we were able to stay until sunset to enjoy the last drops of sunlight dancing among the tulips.
