Americana Looks with Catherines

In today’s #sponsored post, Hailey reviews three Catherines looks inspired by the classic Americana of summertime, featuring the Embroidered Gauze Peasant Top, Suprema Cami with Lace, Printed Flat Front Capri, Good Soles Double-Strap Flip Flop Sandal, Tiered Maxi Dress with Embroidery, Cherry Blossom Duet Top, Clearwater Slider Bracelet, and Good Soles Perforated-Strap Wedge Sandal! - DivineMrsDiva.com #CatherinesStyle #Catherines #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #summer #summerstyle #americana
* This post is sponsored by Catherines.  It features gifted items that I selected.

I'm back with another Catherines collab, a trio of Americana looks inspired by summer barbecues, picnics, and days out in the sun!  It is the time of year when red, white, and blue become extremely prevalent in fashion.  As summer fast approaches, I find these colors of Americana immediately make me think of long mid-summer days and all the outdoor activities that go with them.

I put together three outfits featuring current styles from Catherines.  Let me know how you would wear them, and what your favorite pieces are!

In today's post, I am bringing you a fitting room try-on from LOFT!  I ventured out to my local LOFT store to get a feel for the size and fit of a vaeriety of styles.  The only store that carries plus sizes near me is the LOFT at Lloyd Center in Portland, Oregon.  I bought a few dresses from Loft previously during incredible sales, but it was nice to get in-store and try on so much more.  Check out the video below to get all the details on my try-on fun!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress

In today’s post, Hailey reviews the Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress from Kiyonna, this beautiful knit dress is perfect for any summer soiree but can definitely transition into fall. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #holiday #wrapdress #springstyle #summerstyle

It's less than a month until my big "Epic Adventure", as I am calling it.  Things are overwhelming, and I still have a ton of stuff to get done between now and then.  But it will be such an exciting trip once it gets started!!

In the meantime, I'm working on lots of blog posts, YouTube videos, and trip-planning like the anxious over-achiever that I am.  And also, I'm finding excuses to enjoy the newly sunny weather.  It still isn't too hot, which makes me happy and way less cranky.

I had the privilege of enjoying the weather over the weekend when I wore this beautiful Kiyonna dress out and about!  The Tuscan Tie Wrap Dress is an incredibly soft knit, true wrap dress that comes in two gorgeous prints.  Read on for my review and notes on fit and the like.  You know how we do here!  (Also, I really like the way these photos turned out and how the dress looks with my hair, so I didn't narrow the photos down too hardcore.)

High School Reunion: Saying Goodbye

In today’s post, it is Hailey’s last day of her reunion trip.  She shares her outfit-of-the-day and looks back on the fond memories she made during this important journey. – DivineMrsDiva.com #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #augusta #northaugusta #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussize #psootd #Torrid #TorridInsider #summerstyle #plussizecasual #plussizefashion #plussizeclothing

We have finally made it to the last day of my reunion trip home to South Carolina.  If you need to get caught up, you can read about my visit with my sister in Savannah, fun at Homecoming, the Meat N Greet Picnic, the Reunion Party, Picture Day on Sunday, and cheering on my friend Brandon at his gig!  WHEW!

Today's post is a pretty chill look at our last day in town before heading back to my sister's in Savannah and on back home.  I took some outfit photos at the Riverwalk (where I had plenty of childhood memories to look back on), had lunch with Brandon, and played Putt-Putt with Sean before our two hour drive to Savannah.  It was a bittersweet day of reflection, goodbyes, and a full heart happy with love and reconnection.

At Home Fitting Room: Waterproof Jackets, Hiking Clothes, & Hiking Shoes

In today’s At Home Fitting Room post, Hailey is trying on lots of outdoor apparel for an upcoming vacation!  Waterproof jackets, outdoor/hiking clothing bottoms, and waterproof hiking shoes are featured. – DivineMrsDiva.com #Columbia #KEEN #Teva #UllaPopken #NewBalance #hiking #outdoor #fatgirlshiking #plussizetravel #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing #outfit #plussizecasual #fittingroom

It has been a while since we've had an At Home Fitting Room post!  I've had plenty to show you, but very little time to actually get everything shot and written about and posted.  And it seems like the turnaround for these items is usually so short that once I get them and have time to show you, nothing is available anymore.  Let me know if you still want to see items tried on even if they are no longer available.  I can remember this going forward.

Plus, I have tried to be a lot more picky and particular about what I am buying these days.  We have been trying to save up for our big trip, so I've mainly been purchasing items specific to the trip. Some of that is clothes though, which brings us to this post.

In prepping for our big trip to Iceland, Liverpool, and Scotland, I knew I needed a good waterproof jacket.  I tried on SO MANY looking for something that fit halfway decent.  It was such a chore that I knew I needed to document it and review everything for y'all.  In the process, I also tried on some other outdoor plus size bottoms and hiking shoes as well.

I'm sticking to my goal of catching y'all up to things before mid-June!  This post continues the second-to-last day of my reunion trip home to South Carolina.  That Sunday morning was full of taking pictures in the hot sun with my friends and driving around town reminiscing, with a stop to visit my dad's grave.
