Happy May Day, friends, and cheers to the weekend! As of today, Texas is no longer shelter-in-place! According to officials, we can now dine in restaurants and shop our favorite stores (at 25% capacity)! It’s a day we’ve been waiting six weeks for, but now that it’s here, I’m not sure I’m ready to do those things!?
We’re going to take things slowly, and still practice social distancing and extreme hygiene, but my first order of business is to see friends and family! Although, I doubt any of us will feel comfortable enough to hug, ha!
But no more shelter-in-place means I finally have a reason to get dressed, and J.Crew Factory just released the cutest new arrivals for the whole family! Here are a few of my top picks, and all on major sale at up to an extra 50% off…
Every closet needs a classic striped tee, and this one has a slight boatneck, but is still bra-friendly. It’s soft cotton with a touch of stretch, and perfectly preppy. The shorts have a flattering yet appropriate inseam, and they come in a range of colors. The chambray is a great alternative to cut-off shorts.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS top and size 2 shorts

Zoom calls or lunch dates, this floral number is the perfect spring top. It has an elastic smock neck and ruffles at the shoulder, and can be worn out and loose or tucked. I paired it with high-rise white denim, a comfortable and stretchy fit with n0-show pockets. I love the button fly, too!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS top and size 26 jeans
Floral Top | High Rise Button Jeans | Bangle Set (code ‘BDGCSP25’ saves you 25%!) | Love Knot Hoop Earrings | Double Band Ring | Sunglasses
Hello cute pants! Chambray is one of my favorite fabrics for spring and summer… it’s lightweight and breathable, and the shade goes with absolutely everything. It’s like denim, but kicked up a notch in the style department.
These wide leg pants are a great weight in a pull-on style with elastic waist in the back. The bow is attached for a cute tie in the front, and the cropped length is great for sandals or wedges. I paired them with a fun eyelet top with slightly puffed sleeves. The body is fully-lined, and it’s a crisp, sturdy cotton.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing size 2 pant and XS top

This tie-front top is so easy with everything from skirts and shorts to jeans and pants. It’s lightweight and breathable, and comes in a range of colors.

This tee is fueling my wanderlust… such a fun graphic top with cute, bright colors.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but would size up if in-between or busty.

Gingham is a classic print that never goes out of style, and is so fun to pair with solids, stripes and florals. I love the bold pink color and lightweight, yet crisp material of this shirt. Wear it tied, tucked or out, the styling options are endless!
I paired it with white denim shorts in a great high-rise. I’ve been wearing these for years, and love the thick denim with extra stretch.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS top, but would size up one for broad shoulders. The shorts run a little big, but I stick with my usual 26 for a relaxed fit.

How fun is this eyelet sweatshirt?! In a lightweight spring cotton, it has a traditional sweatshirt feel, but with the cutest eyelet pattern on the back. It’s solid at the top though, so it’s still bra-friendly.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS shirt and size 2 shorts

A girl can never have too many basic tees, and I love the deep v-neck of J.Crew’s vintage fit. It’s lightweight, yet not sheer, and comes in a ton of colors. The jean skirt fits beautifully through the waist, with no gaping in the back, and a perfect length. The pocket placement on the back is super flattering, too.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS tee and size 2 skirt.

J.Crew Factory always has the cutest pajamas, so I couldn’t resist these fun, new short sets. This pair is a soft and stretchy jersey knit, and super comfortable. Not to mention, the rainbow stripes are so happy!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS. I usually size up one in pajamas for a looser, relaxed fit, but the smalls were too big at the waist
This darling gingham set is a crisp cotton and super lightweight… perfect for spring and summer.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small
And finally… it’s not a top or pajamas, but how could I resist this color blocked swimsuit?!?! I’m obsessed with the color combo, and it’s such a comfortable fit. It’s fully-lined, but has minimal support, so it’s more of a ‘drinks by the pool’ suit. Okay by me!
Fit Tip: I always size up one in swim, especially one-pieces because I’m long-torsoed… I’m wearing a small.

*This post created in collaboration with J.Crew Factory, but all product selections, styling, and spring fever is my own. Thank you for supporting Hi Sugarplum sponsors!*
Love your finds, as usual! Thanks for all you do in finding us such adorable clothes. Wanted to let you know that the link for the chambray wide leg pants is for a different pair of their chambray pants, not the wide leg cropped pair.
Ooops, sorry about that!! Here’s the correct link: https://shopstyle.it/l/bgMdx
BTW, I tried those other drawstring pants, too…and liked them, but loved these wide leg more! 😉
Thanks for that tid-bit! I like the look of the wider leg better and am hoping they will fit my “athletic” lower body because they are just adorable! It’s so hard to find things that fit my smaller waist and also my more muscular thighs. 🙁
Love a good wide leg pant for that exact reason!! xo, Cassie
So amazing/interesting about Texas. Hope everyone heads back to their favorite places to support them+20%+ on tips, people! We still have another month left on lock down and I’m feeling “tired of this!”
Your looks, such an inspiration! Pink gingham, screams Spring/Summer. Thanks!
It feels odd to be partially ‘open,’ although, we likely won’t rush to get out. Over half the states are starting to reopen today! We’ll continue to be safe and smart about it!
Lovely finds as usual. Here in Canada’s capital and Canada as a whole, we are still under shelter in place (we’re ending week 7). Most people respect that and we expect things will start to open up slowly in the next few weeks. I don’t want to judge too much but considering the US is one of the hardest hit countries in the world due to your government’s poor response to the virus, it’s surprising that some of your states are opening up before your curve has even started to get flattened (I don’t know the data from Texas though, maybe your state is doing well). I hope this new found freedom is not going to affect the health of your people too much.
I hope so, too! They are opening very slowly for this first phase, with limited capacity at some places. Most are still closed though. Texas shut down very early (over 7 weeks ago), and most people I know will continue to be very safe and cautious! Much love to you all!
Oh I love J Crew . I picked out a few items on a wish list for Mother’s Day. These are all so cute and make adorable outfits.. I’m glad you’re taking it slow with everything opening up. Our state of emergency has been extended for two more weeks so we shall see on that date. I don’t foresee much opening before June and I know like other provinces ( I’m in Canada) we are doing it in stages.. I’m ok with that! Slowly but surely. Have an awesome weekend. The picture of the lake on your Instagram looks so pretty and relaxing. Great spot😀
Hi Karen! Isn’t J.Crew the best?! And I’m smacking myself for not thinking of quarantining at the lake… the views alone, right?! xo, Cassie
Gorgeous lake but your backyard pool isn’t too shabby either! : ) Huge J.Crew fan here! I appreciate your comments on the shutdown, very compassionate yet practical. It does feel strange that different parts of the country are following different guidelines. I’m in Chicago and my daughter is in New York so it looks a lot different for us! Stay safe and healthy.
Thank you so much, Nancy! xo, Cassie
I like that you offer a “fit tip” on the clothing you are modeling, but it only helps if in addition to the sizes you list your height and weight.
Ooops, sorry about that Sharon! I typically indicate that at the beginning of posts, but overlooked it this time. I’m 5’4, 120-ish pounds and usually wear an XS/26. Hope that helps!
