Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! We were iced-in yesterday, but hoping things start to thaw out today… in time for a busy volleyball weekend! We drew the short straw and have the earrrrly start time, so you know it will be a leggings day for me!

Today I’ve got an all new Dressing Room Diaries for you, and it’s chock full of the cutest new arrivals! It’s a mix of retailers from a range of price points, and even a few new small shops I know you’ll love! My job is to find the cutest things, at the best prices, and I think you’ll love these! (I know I did!!)

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, with a slight pear shape. My usual size is XS/2. 

SALE ALERT! // Code ‘SUGARPLUM20’ to save 20%

Before we get in to the new arrivals… my go-to, must-have, closet-staple, boss-babe blazer is 20% off this weekend only!! This classic piece never discounts this deep!! It’s truly one of the longest-wearing items in my closet, and what I reach for anytime I need to feel pulled together, professional, or just classically stylish.

It’s a thick cotton knit, with lots of stretch and a cute contrasting lining I like to show by cuffing the sleeve. Wear it with jeans, trousers, skirts and over dresses.

Fit Tip: I prefer it as a shrunken fit and size down to an XXS, but it’s true to size.

Tops //

My favorite outfits for Spring always involve jeans and a statement top, and this one could not be cuter! I love the embroidered sleeves, bright colors, and cute ruffle neckline… plus, it buttons up the back for a cute style coming and going! The material is thick and textured, with a sturdiness to it.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but would size up if you’re busty.

Statement Sleeve Blouse (Code CASSIE10 to save 10%) | Slide Sandals (size up half) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: White Jeans (0) // Right: Cropped Raw Hem Jeans (2)

 

This gauzy tunic top comes in a few fun colors, but the pink totally caught my eye. It has a forgiving bell shape with puff sleeves, and elastic at the shoulders for a comfy fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but an XS would work, too.

Tiered Blouse (30% off!) | Slide Sandals (size up half) with:
Left: White Jeans (0) | Bangle Bracelets // Right: Cropped Raw Hem Jeans (2) | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Keeper alert! This little top is so simple, but so totally cute and easy. It’s made of a super-soft, gauzy material with operational buttons. I love the full sleeve and loose fit, and will pair it with jeans and cut-offs.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small

Flutter Sleeve Top (On sale!) | Slide Sandals (size up half) with:
Left: White Jeans (0) | Gold Hoop Earrings // Right: Cropped Raw Hem Jeans (2) | Bangle Bracelets

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.

Stripe-lovers rejoice! You’ll love this henley style top, made of a thick and stretchy cotton knit. It comes in several colors, the yellow is actually quite a bit brighter than my photo depicts.

Fit Tip: Im wearing an XS for a close fit, but would size up if you want it more relaxed.

Striped Tee | Chew Hem Jeans | Sneakers

 

Spring Sweaters & Pullovers //

Spring sweater season is fast-approaching, and these two will be in heavy rotation for me! Our popular GLxHSP Camden Sweater, with the feminine gathered shoulder and flattering v-neck, is back in these two new darling prints. Made of a super-soft, medium-weight knit, it’s extra stretchy and easily pairs with denim or trousers.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

with: Cropped Raw Hem Jeans (2) | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

I’m always here for the colorblock, and this cotton-blend sweater has the cutest combo of lilac and blue. I love this zippered neckline for wearing open or tall.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Colorblock Pullover (40% off!) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: White Jeans (0) | Similar Loafers // Right: Cropped Raw Hem Jeans (2) | Linen Slides (Also HERE)

 

Same style sweater, but in darling navy stripes… I love the preppy vibes of this one, and the cotton-blend is so soft and perfect for Spring.

Fit Tip: I’m in an XS, but would prefer a small for a more relaxed fit.

Striped Pullover (30% off!) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: White Jeans (0) | Similar Loafers // Right: Lightwash Step Hem Jeans | Sneakers

 

The cardigan you’ll wear from now until mid-Summer… this waffle weave is soft and plush, without being overly heavy. It comes in a range of colors, but the oatmeal is great for Spring and Fall.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Open Pocket Cardigan | Scoop Tank with:
Left: White Jeans (0) | Leopard Loafers (Also HERE) // Right: Chew Hem Jeans | Sneakers

 

If only it could be Friday Forever! This navy sweatshirt is soft and fitted, with raised graphic letters.

Skirts & Pants //

Skirts are my favorite jeans-alternative for Spring and Summer, and this one is a darling find! Made of soft, gauzy cotton, it has an easy pull-on elastic waist and tiered, a-line shape. Pair it with a fitted tee or tank, or even a statement top, it’s incredibly comfy and versatile.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS. The waist is extra-stretchy and the fit generous.

Tiered Midi Skirt (30% off!) | Slide Sandals (size up half) with:
Left: Flutter Sleeve Top | Bangle Bracelets // Right: Pocket Tee | Straw Tote Bag

 

Another fun skirt, this one in a flowy, rayon material and feminine floral print. It’s fully-lined, with a pull-on elastic waist and pockets. Keep it casual with a tee, or dress it up with a blouse and wedges.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Floral Midi Skirt (30% off!) | Ruffle Henley Shell (35% off!) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: Clear Strappy Heels (size up half) | Belt // Right: Slide Sandals (size up half) | Straw Tote Bag

 

Is there anything preppier (or cuter!) than kelly green and navy?! These pants are a fun Spring find, with lots of stretch and a straight leg. The tie belt is removable, and they easily dress up or down for work and weekend.

The henley top is a rayon material, and the stripes a sturdy cotton.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 pant, but they are a touch big in the waist. Both tops are XS.

Tie Waist Slim Pants (30% off!) with:
Left: Ruffle Henley Shell (35% off!) | Clear Strappy Heels (size up half) | Bangle Bracelets // Right: Striped Boatneck Tee (35% off!) | Leopard Loafers (Also HERE) | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Dresses //

Your vacation called, it said this dress wants to come along! The colors, the print, the flattering silhouette… I love everything about this dress! It’s a linen-blend, with tie shoulders and a fully-lined skirt.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but would size up if you’re busty.

Printed Maxi Dress (Code CASSIE15 to save 15%) | Slide Sandals (size up half) | Gold Hoop Earrings | Gold Bead Bracelets | Straw Hat | White Rattan Circle Bag

 

Showers, brunches, vacations… any fun event you have planned, this is your dress! It’s Darling with a capital D!! Made of a sturdy cotton poplin, the top is smocked with the cutest ruffle straps. I am completely smitten and this one went straight to my closet!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small

The requests for special occasion dresses are coming in hot, so I’m guessing many of you have full calendars this season! After all, we have two years worth of celebrations to make up for! This dress is the best budget find of the month… incredible style and fit, and you won’t believe the price! The lace is delicate, but stretchy, and the straps adjustable, so it’s incredibly flattering and comfy. It also comes in a bunch of classic and bold colors.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small

Lace Midi Dress (50% off!) | Ankle Strap Heels | Gold Hoop Earrings

 

I’m not usually one for body-con dresses, but this one makes an exception! Made of a stretchy knit, it’s thick enough to smooth lumps and bumps, and has flattering ruching along the sides to conceal the tummy. The waist is elastic, with a flattering elbow sleeve. I love it paired with both sandals or sneakers.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Elbow Sleeve Dress (Code SUGARPLUM10 to save 10%) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: Slide Sandals (size up half) // Right: Leather Sneakers | Jean Jacket

 

Green is definitely having a moment this Spring, and this floral is so fresh! It’s a faux-wrap with an easy flutter sleeve and flattering fit-and-flare shape. The material is a soft and flowy rayon blend, with great movement and swing.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Floral V-Neck Dress (30% off!) with:
Left: Clear Strappy Heels (size up half) // Right: Slide Sandals (size up half) | Straw Hat | Crossbody Bag

 

Is anything easier than a midi or maxi dress?! The answer is no… it’s the best one-and-done outfit, and this one is a keeper for sure. A button top with tiered skirt, it’s a soft gauzy cotton with a puff sleeve. I love the easy shape and versatility. The price is great, too!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but would prefer an XS

Puff Sleeve Maxi Dress (30% off!) | Gold Bead Bracelets with:
Left: Linen Slides (Also HERE) // Right: Slide Sandals (size up half) | Straw Hat | Straw Tote Bag

Loungewear //

If you follow my Instagram Stories, then you know I’m smitten with this set… I literally wore it three days straight last week! It’s the perfect throw-on set for working around the house, running errands, and driving carpool. It has a soft, relaxed fit that’s both comfy and chic.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS top and bottom.

Swimwear //

Our Spring Break is early this year, and I just realized it actually starts next Saturday! This leopard one-piece and tassel cover-up are definitely coming with me! Both are a classic fit, full coverage and chic, and come in this fun print and a range of solids.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small in the swimsuits, but the one-piece top runs small, so size up again!

Left: Plunge One Piece Swim Suit (Up to 60% off!) // Right: Ruffle Bikini Top | High Waist Bottoms (Up to 60% off on both!)
Pom Wrap Cover-Up (20% off!) | Slide Sandals (size up half) | Straw Hat | Gold Hoop Earrings

Accessories //

Y’all loved the black and red neoprene bag I shared for winter… so here’s a fun option for warmer months! Wear it closed for a slim tote, or open it up with the base for a wide carry-all. It’s super sturdy, and even comes with a zippered mini-bag.

Let’s talk shoes… did you notice these are pretty much the only three styles I wore for the entire post? They’re perfect for just about any outfit you’re styling this spring… and all super comfy and neutral.

The sneakers are lightweight with a great low-profile shape that aren’t clunky with jeans or dresses. The sandals are ultra-flattering and comfy with a padded footbed (totally Tkees lookalikes!). And the slides are Spring perfection with a linen look that pair with white or dark denim.

Fit Tip: The sneakers are whole sizes only and run big, so go down. I sized up half in the sandals, and the slides are true-to-size.

    Several posts in a row your jean jacket link is actually for a tassel bag charm. Would love the link for the actual jacket. Thanks.

    All outfits are so pretty!! I noticed that I’m the pictures of your hair pulled back that it looked darker. Have you added lowlights ? Can you tell us exactly how your stylist colors your hair? It’s gorgeous! And do you use a purple shampoo?
    Thank you!

    Thanks for the information! I’ll have to try that Olaplex purple shampoo. Could you do an updated hair video on your current waves? Do you use a curling iron or flat iron?
