KATU Afternoon Live: Breaking the Plus Size Fashion Rules

In today’s KATU Afternoon Live Companion post, Hailey shares her tips for breaking those pesky and antiquated plus size fashion rules. - #AfternoonLive #KATUAfternoonLive #BodyPositivity #BodyAcceptance #pdx #psblogger #plussize #plussizeblogger #psootd #styleblogger #outfit #style #plussizecasual #plussizefashionrules #Kiyonna #Torrid #LOFT #TargetStyle #Leith

This month on my latest Afternoon Live segment, I decided to start the new year talking about the "plus size fashion rules" and how to break them.  We've all heard these "rules" - that plus size women shouldn't wear color or prints or stripes, that we should never wear anything too tight, should never draw attention to ourselves, should never be in anything so big and shapeless, etc. etc.

Well, honey, these rules are made to be broken.

I want to encourage everyone to break these rules, and to break their own rules for fashion.  We can all get in a rut while listening to our own insecurities and our own ideas about what we can't and shouldn't wear.  Stop it.  Start the year off by being rebellious and courageous, stepping out of your comfort zone.  Get out of that tidy box that society, your family, or you have put yourself in.  Try everything on and find clothes that speak to your personality and make you feel amazing!

2018: Year in Review

2018 Year In Review - #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize

Some might say that I'm presenting my year in review a bit late, but I don't like to half-ass things.  I like to do things with my whole ass.  That takes time.  And while I strive for perfection, I know I am not perfect and that none of y'all expect me to be perfect.  In fact, I am proud to show you the glimpses of reality and imperfection that is me and my life.  While I don't always get to present all of that here on the blog, you can watch any of my Facebook Lives or follow me on Instagram, or view some of my InstaStories to know I am a real person with real flaws and feelings and issues.  I'm not going to pretend to be someone I'm not.  That would be doing you and I both a disservice.

But I digress.

My 2018 was overwhelming in very positive ways.  Sure, there was shit.  There was anxiety and stress and failures (real and imagined).  There was heartache and tears and anger.  But mostly, there was love and adventure and excitement and new experiences.  I learned about others, about myself, about what I wanted, about asking for those things.  I can't possibly share everything about 2018 with you because we'd be here forever, but I can show you some awesome highlights!

What I Wore: Plaid You Made It

In today’s post, Hailey’s reviewing the Plaid Peplum Challis Camp Shirt from Torrid. - #Torrid #TorridInsider #Avenue #MelissaMcCarthySeven7 #CityChic #Outlander #MetalMarvels #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #fallstyle

Slowly catching up over here with another outfit post!  This time I'm bringing you what I wore to Friendsgiving.  That weekend was so hectic!  I did a KATU segment in Portland and raced home to finish packing and head to Tacoma for an Outlander Craft Day.  On Saturday, I attended the all-day crafting fun, but had to leave a little early to head back home to change clothes, feed the dogs, and then head to Portland for Friendsgiving.  I made cookies in advance so I wasn't worrying about what to bring.  I was exhausted by the end of it all, but I did learn to arm knit at craft day!

All this and more in the post today!

Happy 2019!!

I'm back with a brand new outfit post!  I wanted to keep this post short and sweet to get back in the groove of things.  I still have a ton of stuff to share with you and hope to catch up on all of that one of these days.  Life still goes on, whether we have time for it or not.  I hope the new year finds you well and happy and ready for an exciting year!

I wore this outfit to the Mystery Science Theater 3000 live show back in November.  I was so excited to finally see the show live!  Sean and I missed out on the previous tour.  We also had tickets to the Meet and Greet to meet Joel and Jonah.  Joel did a Q & A prior to photos, which was also a lot of fun. More on than later!  For now, let's talk clothing.
