Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the holiday weekend! Not only is it Valentine’s Day and a school break for President’s Day…but we’re expecting up to 6-inches of snow!! That is a serious event for Texans, so expect your social media feeds to be filled with weather updates, ha!

Today I’m excited to share an all new Dressing Room Diaries, my first of the new year! It’s a mix of retailers from Nordstrom to Target… but I don’t want you to judge the shirt by its label, so they’re all mixed in! My job is to find the cutest things, at the best prices, and I think you’ll love these!

You know the drill with Dressing Room Diaries… the shots aren’t good, the lighting is bad, and I’m in desperate need of a hairbrush. But it’s real life, real girl, real clothes… and hopefully helpful for you to see them this way, instead of perfectly styled on a model. So let’s get started!

Fit Note: I’m 5’4″-ish, 125 pounds-ish (give or take #covid), with a slight pear shape. My usual size is XS/0.


Jeans //

Let’s start with denim because I found two incredible styles, both so perfect for Spring. But let me ask you…when is the last time you put on a pair of jeans and actually felt comfortable?! If you’re like me, it’s been awhile!

Well that all changes with these jeans! Made of the softest denim, they’re thick enough to feel secure, but full of stretch for a flexible, comfortable fit. The rise is just below the belly-button, and there’s no gaping in the back. You can wear them long or cuffed, but I think I’ll have them hemmed at a cropped length. And the ankle opening is perfect for sneakers, flats and sandals.

Fit Tip: They’re true to size, but stretch out a little. I’m wearing a 2, but would size down if in-between.

The second winner in the jeans department are these with a raw hem and cropped length. They’re more of a mid-rise, with a dark rinse and no distressing. I love the extra room in the leg, and comfortable stretch. The pocket placement is so flattering on the back, too!

The sweatshirt is a cute find, but a little boxy and slim through the shoulders.

Fit Tip: Jeans are true to size, I’m wearing a 26/2. Sweatshirt is small and fitted, I’m wearing a small

Spring Tops //

Several of you spotted this blouse in my last Sugarplum Style post and wanted details! It’s a thick crepe material, with the prettiest ruffle collar and sleeve. Wear it open or buttoned, it has a flowy tunic fit that’s easily dressed up or down.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Doesn’t this pretty top make you ready for sunny spring days?! It’s a lightweight woven material, fully-lined through the body, with feminine details at the neck and a flutter sleeve. It’s a great work-from-home top since it looks so pretty on Zoom!

Layer it under jackets for an easy transitional look, too. And code SUGARPLUM20 saves you 20%!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

I never met a stripe I didn’t love…make them pink it’s it’s mine! This tunic is a crisp cotton poplin, with ruffle neck and wide smocked elastic at the wrists. Wear the sleeves long or pushed up, and the neck open or tied.

Fit Tip: Oversized fit, I’m wearing XS

Striped Tunic Top (on sale!) | White Jeans | Classic LoafersBeaded Bracelet Set


This little number is as soft and comfy as it is flirty and cute. The body is made of a soft cotton knit, with crisp poplin flutter sleeves. The scoop neck is a flattering silhouette for wearing out or dressed up with skirts and pants.

Fit Tip: I sized up to a small for a little more room through the body.

Flutter Sleeve Tee | White JeansLeopard Flat | Beaded Bracelet Set


Clearly feminine details are having a moment this spring! This chiffon top is fully-lined through the body, with a smocked elastic neckline and flutter sleeves. It would be darling with a floral skirt, but just as cute with white jeans. Great for layering under blazers, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Tees & Pullovers //

A girl can never have too many striped tees, and this one is the perfect oversized fit. A classic long sleeve style, it’s perfect for jeans, shorts, and even prepping up your favorite joggers.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Graphic tee season is almost here, and J.Crew always makes some of my faves. They’re simple and chic, and made of the softest cottons.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small in both

‘WEEKEND’ Ringer Tee (on sale!) | ‘LOVE’ Tee | High-Waist Girlfriend Jeans (darker rinse HERE) | Beaded Bracelet Set


The sweetest sweater that’s perfect transitional weight, this cashmere feels amazing on! The multi-colored hearts make it fun well beyond February, too!

Fit Tip: I’m in an XS

Cashmere Sweater | White Jeans | Classic Loafers | Beaded Bracelet Set


If you’re a hoodie girl, you’ll love this one! A lightweight and crazy-soft material, the torso and hood are lined in the coziest sherpa! I love that the sleeves aren’t lined, for a lighter fit and less bulk.

Dresses & Bodysuits //

The requests for spring dresses are coming in hot, and I’m here for it! This pretty new arrival caught my eye, and I absolutely adore it. The ruffle details and shape are so feminine, yet it’s not overly sweet. I love the swiss dot pattern, and the sheer overlay makes the length flattering. It’s also 20% with code SUGARPLUM20

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Pin Dot Romantic Dress | Beaded Bracelet Set | Pumps


I shared this bodysuit in this week’s Sweet and Sassy post, and I stand behind it being a closet staple! There’s something so empowering about it…flattering fit, comfortable, and classic.

These jeans are a great straight fit in a thick, sturdy denim. They start out stiff (there’s no stretch!), but relax and form to your shape after just a few wears.

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, but I sized up one to a small because I have a long torso, and don’t love wedgies, ha!

V-Neck Bodysuit | Straight Leg LevisBeaded Bracelet Set | Pumps


If you prefer a higher neck, this bodysuit is all kinds of chic! Made of a textured, stretchy material, it has puff sleeves and a broad shoulder. But it’s the back that’s the showstopper! (See it here)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Lounge & Workout Wear //

Loungewear continues to be part of my everyday, and I’m not mad about it! Especially when it comes in the form of my favorite fleece! My friends at Gibson took our favorite joggers, and made the cutest henley tank jumpsuit! Wear it around the house with your favorite cozy cardigan, or layer on a jean jacket and sneakers for running around town.

The oatmeal is made of the classic Gibson fleece, and the black is a silky softy and thick modal knit. And they’re both 20% off with code SUGARPLUM20

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in both.

This duster cardigan made of the same cozy fleece is a fun layer for the jumpsuit, or any of your loungewear!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS

This fleecey lounge set is pajama cozy, but cute with sneakers, too. The top has a wide neck, but still bra-friendly, and the joggers are pull-on elastic with a super-high waist. It comes in this gray and black, and a pink combo, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small in both pieces.

Knit Top | High-Waist Jogger Pant | Sneakers (also HERE) | Beaded Bracelet Set


As for workout wear, Zella always brings it with incredible quality pieces! This pullover is a really well-made sweatshirt material, and lined in the softest fuzzy fleece. I love the longer back and side slit for pairing with leggings.

These are my go-to Amazon leggings, now in this fun new pattern.

Fit Tip: I sized down in the pullover (Zella tops run large), but would prefer my usual size for a longer fit. The leggings run a little big for me, I wear an XXS

Side Split Pullover | Naked Feel Leggings | Beaded Bracelet Set | Sneakers


I love the fit and style of this muscle tank!! It’s a brushed material that’s thick and soft, with lots of stretch and cute twist front. It’s a little cropped, so pairs perfectly with high-waist leggings.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS

Pajamas //

I hit the pajama jackpot this round, and I think you’ll be thrilled with what I found! First up, this brushed knit set I shared in Tuesday’s Sweet and Sassy post…I’ve worn it all week and it’s crazy soft and comfortable! I love the shorter sleeve and pant length, too…I don’t feel like I’m drowning in fabric!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Brushed Knit Pajama Set (50% off!) | Slippers


For all the fans of the Nordstrom Moonlight pajamas (I’m looking at you, Mama SP!)…you’ll love this set! Made of the signature silky-soft jersey, these are the cutest leopard print with a blush pink trim.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS

Once the weather warms up, I love lightweight cotton pajama sets, and this new (to me) brand has the cutest prints! They’re a crisp cotton, with contrasting trim and pull-on elastic waist. They’re super lightweight, but not sheer!

Fit Tip: I sized up one, I’m wearing a small

Cotton Print Pajama Set


This set has me anxious for a tropical getaway! Crisp cotton with the sweetest ruffle trim, and the cutest pattern!!! Lightweight, but not sheer, I’m saving these for summer nights.

Fit Tip: I sized up one to a small

Cami & Cropped Pant Pajama Set


So many fun finds this month, right? I honestly love everything I shared (I only share the good stuff!), but if I had to narrow it down, these would be my Top 5:

  1. High-Waist Girlfriend Jeans
  2. V-Neck Bodysuit
  3. Pin Dot Romantic Dress
  4. Raw Hem Cropped Jeans
  5. Cami & Cropped Pant Pajama Set

And of course, the Leopard Flat I’m wearing with every other outfit! And you can’t really see them in my pics, but I’ve been wearing these hoop earrings pretty much non-stop. I love the texture and they’re so lightweight!

Okay, that’s it for today, I hope you found some new goodies and enjoyed the post as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you missed our last installment of Dressing Room Diaries, check it out HERE! And if you’re looking for Amazon finds, check out my January Fashion Faves HERE.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve been in high rise jeans so long that mid rise feel like they are constantly falling off! I don’t know if I’m able to go back, LOL! 😋

      We’re all built differently and carry weight in different spots, so that can certainly impact sizing. Or maybe I just wear my clothes too tight? 😉
