Amazon Fashion Finds | March

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! Sloan returns home from her mission trip today, and I can’t wait to see her face and hear all about it! She’s been living at a children’s home on the border of Mexico and Guatemala, and from the snippets I’ve seen, it was a powerful experience.

It will be a quick turnaround though as we leave for Spring Break tomorrow! It’s definitely a crazy season of travel for us, but this is just how the calendars landed, and I’m grateful we’re able to make it all happen!

We’re headed to St. John, USVI… a trip we had scheduled two years ago, but devastatingly lost her dear friend just days before leaving. The owners of the rental house were so kind and allowed us to hold on to the credit, but the deadline to use it is next month… so away we go!

Mr. Sugarplum and I visited the island years ago, so we’re excited to take the kids this time around. I’m sure so much has changed, so if you’ve got favorite spots, let me know!

Today I’ve got your favorite monthly series, my Amazon Fashion Finds! I had so much fun finding fresh, affordable styles for the season… in fact, I found so many I had to split the post, so stayed tuned for Part 2 next Friday!

Sizing info: I’m 5’4″ 125-ish pounds, and usually wear an XS and 26 jeans. My fit tips and sizing recommendations are included with each description.

Dresses //

This dress completely blew me away, with both the quality of the style and print! The top is fully smocked for a comfy, supportive fit, and the skirt is partially lined. The material is a little thicker than a traditional poly, giving it a dressier feel. It’s a total homerun!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

One-Shoulder Maxi Dress (Blue Beige Leaves & Pink Beige Leaves)
Left: Raffia Block Heels | Tennis Bracelet | Teardrop Earrings // Right: Raffia Sandals | Belt

Another happy surprise, this dress is a super-soft brushed poly with lots of stretch. The bra-friendly tank-style top is perfect for layering with jackets, and the high waist elongates for a flattering silhouette.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Graduations and parties on your calendar this season? This darling eyelet dress is perfect! Made of a sturdy cotton, with so many designer details, you can wear it open or belted. It comes with a slip, but I’m wearing it without and it doesn’t feel exposed or sheer.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Eyelet Puff Sleeve Dress (Orange 202310)
Raffia Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings

This little dress didn’t look like much when I pulled it out of the package, but the moment I slipped it on it became a favorite find of the month! The print is just so elevated, and the colors are universally flattering. Plus, it’s silky soft with a forgiving shape. Dress it up with wedges, or keep it casual with slides. You could even throw it on over your swimsuit for the chicest cover-up at the pool!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Puff Sleeve Dress (Green-floral)
Left: Braided Slide Sandals (TTS) | Square Handle Straw Bag | Headband // Right: Straw Hat | Chunky Hoop Earrings | Gold Bead Bracelets

With Easter around the corner, I’ve been looking for dresses that fit the occasion. Of course I’m partial to this one, but this one is a close second! Made of a soft and lightweight woven material, it’s fully lined to the knee with an elastic waist and wrap front (there’s a snap to keep it closed!). I’ll swap the slides for a wedge or heeled sandal for church.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Tie Waist Midi Dress (Dark Blue & Green_01)
Left: Headband | Braided Slide Sandals (TTS) | Chunky Hoop Earrings // Right: Straw Hat | Belt

This dress had me at poppy and lilac… such a fun color combo, don’t you think?! It’s a soft and stretchy jersey knit, with faux-wrap front and flattering fit & flare shape. Perfect for the office, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Faux Wrap Dress (Red floral)
Strappy Heels | Gold Bead Bracelets

I’m currently crushing on lilac, so this dress instantly caught my eye! It has a comfortable smocked top and adjustable ties, with a full, silky-soft skirt. It’s full-length, too, which is great for the taller gals.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Bottoms & Sets //

Jumpsuits are a tricky fit for me, so I was shocked at how easy and flattering this one fits! Made of a stretchy crepe-style material, with a smocked top and wide legs, it feels incredible on! It easily dresses up or down, and can be styled for so many occasions. Definitely a favorite find!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS jumpsuit.

Sleeveless Jumpsuit (Black & Rose)
Jean Jacket (code CASSIE15) (Available in White HERE) | Ankle Strap Sandals | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Tennis Bracelet | Teardrop Earrings

Another fun surprise… this gauzy style looks like a skirt, but is actually shorts! The wide leg and smocked waist is super comfy, and would be darling over a one-piece swimsuit, too! FYI… I also tried them in the lighter ‘beige’ color, and didn’t like the fit at all.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small shorts.

I wore this sporty set earlier this week, and the link requests came flooding in! Made of a stretchy, ribbed material, it’s as comfy as it is cute. I’ll pair it with an oversized jean jacket or sweatshirt for an extra layer.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small set.

Tops & Jackets //

Perfect closet staples for the season, this shirt buttons up the front with a fun puffed sleeve and feminine details along the neckline. Tuck it in to jeans, skirts and trousers, or thanks to the a-line shape, it’s darling worn out and loose, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small top, size 2 white jeans, and size 27 olive jeans.

Puff Sleeve Blouse (Black & White)
Left: Wide Leg White Jeans (code CASSIE15) | Raffia Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings // Right: Cropped Wide Leg Jeans | Raffia Sandals

This ribbed henley tee now has a permanent place in my closet… I love the stretchy fit and neckline!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small tee.

Left: White Jeans (size 2) (code CASSIE15) | Braided Slide Sandals (TTS) | Gold Bead Bracelets
Right: Raw Hem Flare Jeans (size 2) (code CASSIE15) (Also HERE) | NB Sneakers

If you’re still months away from warmer weather, you’ll love this spring jacket! The olive color is perfect for pairing with all shades of denim, and the lightweight nylon material gives just enough warmth without adding bulk.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small jacket (but would prefer a size down) and size XS tank.

Special Occasion //

Y’all must have a lot of fun invitations on the calendar, because the requests for special occasion dresses are coming in hot! These styles are my top picks and go-tos for all things special occasion!

This halter style has been my go-to for the last black-tie events, and I’m crazy for the new pink color! It’s made of a stretchy crepe material that hugs in the right spots, with a fun ruffled hemline. It also comes in a new knee-length option HERE, and seen on me HERE.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Halter Ruffle Evening Gown (Black & Magenta)
Ankle Strap Heels (size up half) | Chunky Hoop Earrings | Gold Bead Bracelets

This one is gorgeous as well, but would require some alterations for the petite crowd as the torso and length are longer (great for the tall gals!). I love the deep plunging neckline and mermaid hem. It is a solid material with good stretch, as well.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Fitted Plunging Neckline Dress
Strappy HeelsLayered Initial Necklace

Perfect for weddings and cocktail parties, this pleated satin halter dress is as flattering as it is fun! The elastic waist and neck make it comfy, and the asymmetrical hem will have you twirling all night!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress.

Athleisure & Workout Wear //

I don’t play tennis or pickle ball, but I’ll certainly be wearing this darling scallop dress for workouts and even errands around town! Made of an incredible smooth and stretchy fabric, it has a built-in shelf bra and cups for great shape and support, and includes shorts.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Scalloped Tennis Dress (#2 light-Blue)
Ultraboost Sneakers | Tennis Bracelet | Teardrop Earrings

You know I’m a die-hard fan of the Vuori Performance Joggers (there’s a reason they’ve made the Sugarplum Favorite Things list two years in a row!), but I’m always on the lookout for a more affordable option. These are the closest I’ve found… they aren’t as crazy soft as my beloved Vuori, but they are soft with an elevated style perfect for streetwear.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small joggers with 24″ inseam, but would consider sizing up if in-between.

Swim Coverups //

I love the look of an oversized shirt for cover-ups, and this one is silky soft and extra long.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small cover-up.

    Oh, wait! Who’s the (cute) college chick in the grey henley T and white jeans, ha,ha!
    Oh, my! St. John! Paradise! Being honest here-14 hours from door to door for us, but wow, what an island. Car, plane, change of planes, taxi, boat, rental car. Don’t let this scare you, haha! The roads and steep switchbacks are really intense, so we ditched the car. Took a taxi to Trunk Bay (Omg!), thru the forest to this pristine beach w/a snorkeling trail! Oh, the views from here. Also, when you get in via boat to the island, there is a sweet juice/smoothie hut (everyday!) and a sweet little lady comes w/her cart of home cooked Caribe food-lobster etc. So special. Honestly? Well…we had to close up our rental house and beg for a soundproof room at the Westin. Why? The tree frogs kept us up all night! Walked around like in a drunken stupor, ha,ha-sleepless on St. John, ha,ha. But the sheer beauty, awesome views, the music! (Mr. SP!). St. Thomas was fun for a 1/2 day of gallery looking. Always greet islanders in shops first, it’s their custom. Just enjoy and stay in the water, or should I say bathwater, it was that warm! So much sea life to see, right off the beach. Paradise! xoxoxoxo.

    St John is our favorite! If you are up for a hike, we love Reef Bay Trail and Rams Head. Hawksnest, Cinnamon and Maho are our favorite beaches. Be sure and rent Paddleboards at Maho and go visit the turtles. We love North Shore Deli for lunch. We rent boats from https://oceanrunnerusvi.com/ and go explore the north shore. Also fun to do a chartered day trips if you like to snorkle. Lovango for a day trip (or a stop on your boat charter) is fun, or Lime Out! Enjoy your time!

    Sorry for the overkill there. Excited for you, SPs!
    The most beautiful live jazz music I have ever heard came drifting up to our rental house from town below. Pure magic.
    Can you believe that island! xoxo.
