Best of 2022 | Style

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the first weekend of the New Year! We’re headed home in the morning, and feeling refreshed and excited for the year to come! So many great things are happening in 2023, from Little Miss starting her Senior year to releasing new Collections with Gibsonlook!

All this week I’ve been recapping the most popular posts of last year… and there were a lot of them (over 200!). But what made 2022 so unbelievably special was you… and the opportunities that came from your support, readership, comments, and genuine enthusiasm and encouragement.

So far I’ve shared Best of Beauty HERE, Travel and Decor HERE, along with your Top 20 bestsellers of the year HERE, and today we’re finishing up with the Best of Style! Hi Sugarplum has never been about just one topic, and I love that you indulge my love of all things style, decor, travel, fitness, wellness, and more! That’s the great thing about getting older, our interests and time evolve and grow, too.

Fashion remains your top category, as well, because style pieces continue to be the biggest sellers year after year. This year’s Top 20 Reader Faves are no surprise, as they’re all faves of mine, as well!

I took a little breather from Collections last year and released one large Summer Collection, along with single pieces throughout the year. But I missed creating more styles for you, so this year we’re back with more!! Look for our Resort/Spring Break Collection coming next month! P.S. I’m obsessed with it!!

Victoria Emerson x Hi Sugarplum  //

After being a long-time fan of the small, but mighty accessories company, I was thrilled when Victoria Emerson asked me to create a Hi Sugarplum Collection! Together we launched their first-ever box, and it sold out in days! We followed it up with a Holiday Gift Box of classic styles I’ll be wearing on repeat all year!

The (first) Victoria Emerson x Hi Sugarplum Collection is HERE!

Okay, so that was a bit of horn-tooting, but there’s no question the amazing opportunities that come my way are because of you, darling friends! I know without your support, enthusiasm, kindness, and interactions, there would be no Hi Sugarplum. I can’t thank you enough for popping in every day, week, month, or leap year… whenever it is, I’m thrilled you stopped by! Even the lurkers… I know you’re there!

I am beyond humbled by your friendship, support, and kind words. I can’t thank you enough for sharing in our joys, supporting me through the sorrows, and celebrating all the silly in-between. Your encouragement makes me excited to continue creating and sharing what I love so much. I pray 2023 is your best yet, lovebugs!

    You work very hard to create content for us. I enjoy your blog posts and style tips. I have tiptoed into color and pattern due to your influence. Looking back over your fashion posts, I’m surprised how much has wound up in my closet. And wear regularly!
    Thanks for nudging me out of my beige closet.
