Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! We’ve got lots of volleyball on the agenda, plus Mr. Sugarplum’s birthday, and maybe even a quick visit from Mr. College! So Fall decorating will have to wait another week!

Did you catch my cute Fall Decor Finds the other day? Check it out HERE if you missed it. I also shared new arrivals from Vuori HERE, and my Fall’s Essential Seven HERE. And if you’re looking for outfit inspo, I rounded up 30 transitional outfits HERE.

Today I’ve got an all new Dressing Room Diaries, chock full of the cutest new arrivals for early Fall! It’s a mix of retailers from Nordstrom and Loft to J.Crew Factory and Walmart… 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, with a slight pear shape. My usual size is XS/2.

Colleen Rothschild x Hi Sugarplum Teen Faves Bundle //

Actually, before we get started…. I had to let y’all know that our Teen Faves Bundle with Colleen Rothschild is almost gone! The first batch sold out in hours, but we’ve added more, woo hoo! It contains two full-sized products of my go-to gentle skincare products, plus a FREE mini detox mask. Retail value is over $110, but our special Sugarplum price is just $69!

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Tops & Tees //

A fave find in the bunch, this top was an instant ‘YES’ for me! It’s gauzy and light, in the most gorgeous, rich colors for Fall. The neck is stretchy, and the full sleeve gives it a great shape.

The jeans are a new shape, and surprisingly flattering and versatile! Made of a sturdy, traditional denim, they keep everything held in, but have enough stretch to be comfy. The lighter wash pairs well with Fall’s rich colors, and the wide hem is great for sneakers, loafers, slides, and booties.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS top, and 2-short in the jeans.

With the arrival of Fall, we’ll start transitioning from skirts and shorts to denim, and I love a fun fall top with statement details to dress up an otherwise basic combo. This woven top has feminine ruffle details, a pretty floral print, and is fully-lined through the body.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Gingham and plaid never go out of style, and J.Crew does it better than anyone! This shirt is a soft, brushed flannel that’s not heavy or bulky. It’s also cut for a woman, so has a more feminine fit than most.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

This silky top has a romantic feel to it, with both the print and trim details. It buttons down the front, with a smocked cuff and full sleeves.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

I shared this top last month (see it HERE), and was so smitten I had try another color. Made of a lightweight knit, it’s as soft and comfy as it is cute! I love the ruffle neckline and elbow sleeve. Pair it with denim or dress it up a bit with trousers, it’s super versatile.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Ruffle Mockneck Sweater (code SUGARPLUM10)

Another fun plaid option, this one is super lightweight and drape-y, with a longer, tunic length. I love these shades of plum and lavender, but there are lots of options.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Slim Ankle Jeans | Notch Booties (TTS) | Loafers

 

One-shoulder tops are always so pretty, and perfect for a night out. This one comes in a great fall color, with a feminine print and puff sleeve detail. The belted waist gives it an extra-flattering fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Asymmetrical Puff Sleeve Blouse (code SUGARPLUM10)
Slim Ankle Jeans | Strappy Heels (size up half)

 

This rugby takes me back to my high school years… does it for you, too? A classic style, made current with a soft cotton fabric and fun color combos. It has a petite collar for a more feminine fit than the rugbys of previous decades!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS, but I’d size up if you prefer it in a more relaxed fit.

You know I love a statement piece, and this top has a great bold print and gorgeous colors. It has an asymmetrical peplum hem, and is made of a sturdy cotton-blend, which gives it structure.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Asymmetrical Ikat Blouse
Step Hem Jeans | Strappy Heels (size up half)

 

Another top find this month, I love the puffed sleeves and graphic print of this pullover! It’s more of a sweatshirt material, but isn’t flimsy or sloppy.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

I wear henley tees on repeat year-round, with everything from jeans to skirts to joggers. This new ribbed find is really lightweight, with exposed seams and a snap front.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top, but would prefer a size up.

Sweaters & Cardigans //

You saw this sweater in this week’s Fall’s Essential Seven (found HERE)… I thought it was so cute I had to try another color. It’s a medium-weight, chunky knit, with a wide collar and a cropped fit. I’ve paired it with both denim and trousers.

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

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

You know how I feel about a winter white sweater… every closet needs one! This classic crewneck is super-soft, with a stretchy fit. It’s perfect for denim and skirts.

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

Pullovers & Jackets //

Can we talk about this pullover?! I don’t think they come any cuter! I’m crazy for the color blocking, and the unexpected mix and colors. It’s thick and warm, in a soft sherpa fleece.

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

Fleece Colorblock Pullover (code SUGARPLUM10)

Another fun pullover, this one is almost silky-soft, in a warm sherpa. The hem dips to cover the bum in the back, and it has a taller neckline.

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

Cozy Pocket Pullover (40% off!)
Step Hem Jeans | Veja Sneakers | Gold Hoop Earrings

 

A favorite pullover from last year, it’s now with a tunic fit. It’s a cozy, sweatshirt material, lined in the softest fleece. The hem is loose, with a side slit and longer back to fully cover the bum.

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

Speaking of tunics, this pullover is so fun for pairing with both jeans and leggings. It’s a cotton blend with a terrycloth lining. It comes in tons of great colors, and will be a weekend uniform, for sure!

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

If you don’t own a utility jacket, add this one to your closet! They are one of my favorite layers for everything from jeans to dresses to skirts. This one is a cotton twill, with an elastic waist for a more flattering fit.

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

If you’re a shacket girl, you’ll love this one! The colors of pink and orange are so fun together, and the plaid is perfect for Fall. It’s a great length, but not bulky. It is a wool blend, so I’d pair it with a long sleeve for a softer fit.

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

Can you tell how happy this puffer makes me?! I’m practically beaming, even though it’s 90 degrees! The colors are so fun, and I love the shorter length.

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

Pants & Skirts //

A girl can’t live in denim all Fall, but I might live in this corduroy skirt! Made of a soft cotton, it zips up the back with faux buttons in the front (which means it doesn’t gap!). It has a slight a-line shape, so it’s not pencil thin across the hips and bum.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 skirt.

Faux Button Skirt (Extra 20% off!)

Another keeper for me, this maxi skirt is so silky-soft, with a drape-y fit. It has an elastic pull-on waist, with button details and a side slit. The colors are perfect for fall, and easily transitions from work to weekend.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS skirt.

Floral Midi Skirt (25% off!)
Crewneck Sweater | Chambray Button-Down (40% off!) | Ankle Booties (TTS)

 

You saw these pants HERE, but I wanted to give you a closer look at them styled a few ways. They are quintessentially Fall, and the elastic waist makes them fit like a dream. I paired them with a gorgeous silky top that you could style with literally everything, and a chunky sweater. I love the versatility!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XXS pant, so size down if in-between. The blouse is true-to-size, I’m in an XS.

Plaid Trousers

First I fell for the dusty pink color of these pants, then the comfy fit! They have a pull-on style, with elastic back and flat front. They’re fully-lined and have a cropped length for flats and heels.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS pant.

Dresses //

I’m forever a fan of pink and red, and this swirly pattern is so fun! The smocked neck and waist is stretchy and comfy, with a flirty skirt and full, sheer sleeves. Style it with heels, booties, or knee boots, and add a jean jacket for a fun top layer.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

I love the gorgeous shades of teal and blue in this fun print! The midi dress has floaty layers that tier down the skirt, with loose sleeves. The belted waist gives it good shape, and the price is crazy-good!

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