Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! It’s Prom Night here, and we’re hosting a big group of Sloan’s girlfriends and their parents for photos and snacks! I ordered a fun balloon backdrop to make things extra festive, and I’m so excited to see these beautiful girls all dolled up! We’re expecting major storms this afternoon and evening, but fingers crossed it’s not as bad as they say!

Thanks for the love this week on our Vuori Love for Mom… it’s always a treat to have Mama Sugarplum on the blog! And I’m thrilled you loved the home updates and sale I shared HERE, and the Luxe for Less Mother’s Day gifts HERE! And if you missed it, we recently shared 10 Fabulous Spring Tops HERE and a big Amazon Fashion Haul HERE.

Today I’ve got an all new Dressing Room Diaries for you, and it’s chock full of the cutest new arrivals! This month I added a slew of new retailers, and fair warning…these finds are dangerously good (as evidenced by how many things I’m keeping for myself!)!

It’s a range of price points from a mix of retailers, and even some of my favorite 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!!)

Fit Note: I’m 5’4″-ish, 125 pounds-ish, with a slight pear shape. My usual size is XS/2.

 

Dresses //

The dresses were all kinds of fabulous this month, so let’s kick things off with this feminine and flirty number! I’m crazy for the mix of pink, orange, and lilac, and the ruffled details are absolutely darling! Plus, the fit-and-flare shape and tiered skirt make it uber flattering. It’s lightweight and super soft, too.

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

Clear Strappy Sandals (Size up half) | Straw Clutch | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Cotton gauze is one of my favorite fabrics to wear in Texas summers, and this month brought lots of options. Starting with this cotton dress, which feels like a cloud! Smocking at the top and adjustable tie straps give it a comfy fit, and the fully lined skirt is floaty and light. Of course I adore the bold pink, but other colors are available, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Y’all… when is the last time you shopped at Dillard’s? It used to be my and Mama Sugarplum’s go-to store, but somehow fell off my radar in recent years. Well let me tell you… Dillard’s is back, baby, and bringing all the fabulous styles! Starting with this super soft cotton dress in a gorgeous print. I love the button front and contrasting prints and ribbon belt, plus the lightweight princess sleeve. It’s on the pricier side, but I deem this one of those closest staples you’ll grab for everything from church to parties to lunches with friends.

And the wedges?! My absolute favorites for the season! I’ve owned this flattering style for years and was thrilled they released this new, nude shade to go with absolutely everything!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 0 dress, it’s a generous fit.

Espadrille Wedges | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet

 

One of my all-time favorite GLxHSP styles is BACK, and in all-new colors! The sleeveless Decked Out Day Dress is the perfect wear-anywhere style, with an easy, flattering fit. I love the ruffle detail at the neck and bra-friendly style. It easily transitions between sneakers, sandals, and wedges, and is fully lined.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Leather Slide Sandals | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Bead Bracelets | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Just take all my money, Target, because I want every dress from this brand! Super soft cotton, with adjustable straps and the cutest mix of block prints! It looks so high-end, but at amazing Target prices!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress… it runs a touch big.

Tiered Maxi Dress
Leather Slide Sandals | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Jean Jacket (code CASSIE15)

 

Graduations and showers are calling, and these dresses would be great options. A dressier woven material, both are fully lined with feminine, ruffled details. The coral one has a comfy, wide elastic waist, and the floral a flattering wrap style (with snap closure).

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS in both dresses.

Smocked Waist Maxi Dress | Tie-Waist Maxi Dress (code SUGARPLUM10 for both)

Marea is a new brand that’s absolutely nailing the block prints, and this dress is no exception. It’s a thick cotton with a relaxed fit and full skirt. The colors and pattern are so pretty, and this dress is so easy and forgiving.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Balloon Sleeve Dress (code SUGARPLUM10)
Leather Slide Sandals | Leather Woven Tote Bag | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Cotton gauze for the win! This fit-and-flare dress is crazy soft, with flutter sleeves and an elastic waist… plus pockets!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Gauzy Tie Dress (code SUGARPLUM10)
Leather Slide Sandals | Woven Headband | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Tube Bangle Bracelets | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Bring on the lightweight cotton… this dress is a soft cotton with fuller sleeves and tassel ties. I’m crazy for the mix of prints, and it’s a great length for busy moms and teachers!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

Statement Dresses //

I couldn’t add this dress to cart fast enough! I love a statement sleeve, and this one delivers! I love the mix of colors and the open back, and the taffeta-style material definitely dresses it up for all sorts of events.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 dress, and it’s a teeny bit tight across the hips, but the 4 was too big across the shoulders. 

Puff Sleeve Statement Dress
Strappy Heels (size up half) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Another stunner, I’m crazy for the print and colors of this bold halter dress! The plunging back gives it extra sass and the cotton sateen feels very elevated. I’d wear it to everything from weddings to vacation… it’s so versatile!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 dress, and it’s a teeny bit tight through the waistband, but I have a wide rib cage for my frame.

Abstract Halter Dress
Clear Strappy Sandals (Size up half) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

The statement dresses are on fire this month, am I right?! This gorgeous maxi has a fun abstract print of unexpected colors, with a sassy cut-out on the front, and plunging back. The pleats are beautifully made, and the skirt a longer length for tall girls (but an easy hem for shorter gals).

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress, but could use my usual XS, so don’t size up.

Pleated Maxi Dress (code CASSIE15)
Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Could this dress be any chicer!? A sturdy cotton poplin, the crisp fit and bold print look so high-end… you’d never guess it’s under $100! It has a straight fit with flared hem, and cute drop shoulder sleeve. I love the contrasting stripes on the belt and hem, too!

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

Tie Waist Midi Dress
Clear Strappy Sandals (Size up half) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Channeling my inner Princess Kate with this one (doesn’t it remind you of her style?)! Shades of navy and blue, it’s made of a sturdy lace and lined to the knee. I love the shape of the sleeves with a longer skirt for a flattering, elongating look. And bonus… it’s bra-friendly! I shared this one before, but so excited to find it fully re-stocked!

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

Tops //

I love absolutely everything about this statement top!! From the puffed sleeves and peplum hem, to the gathered chest and fun open-back style! It comes in a couple of amazing color combos, and is the perfect top for all your fun spring and summer get-togethers!

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

Peplum Puff Sleeve Top
Flare Cropped White Jeans (size 27) | Clear Strappy Sandals (Size up half) | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet

 

Made of the softest, lightweight cotton, this top has cute tassel ties and an easy fit. And the price? Even better! It comes in several great prints, these being two of my faves.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Flutter Sleeve Top
Flare Cropped White Jeans (size 27) | Leather Slide Sandals | Woven Headband | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

I love this preppy combo of kelly green and navy, plus pleated shoulder details! It’s a crisp cotton, perfect for tucking in skirts and pants, or wearing loose with your favorite denim.

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

Ruffle Sleeve Blouse (code CASSIE15)
Flare Cropped White Jeans (size 27) | Leather Slide Sandals | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet

 

Cotton gauze at its best! This was one of my favorite casual tops last Summer, and I’m thrilled it’s back and in new colors! Crazy soft with flutter sleeves, you’ll wear it with everything from denim to skirts.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS in the top and shorts.

Friday night called and it wants you to book a date night STAT! This darling cotton top is ready for fun nights out, in a crisp cotton with long sleeves and the cutest print.

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

Off Shoulder Blouse (code CASSIE15)
Flare Cropped White Jeans (size 27) | Espadrille Wedges | Straw Clutch | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Small Hoop Earrings

 

I’m always a sucker for an embroidered top, and this one could not be cuter! Flutter sleeves, ruffled neckline, and a lightweight cotton, it’s so soft and easy-to-wear! But good luck choosing between the two colors!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top, but would prefer a size Small for a little more length and shoulder room.

I love a crisp poplin top, but some days you want to be soft and cozy… and it doesn’t get much better than cotton gauze! This soft cotton top has loose flutter sleeves, square neckline, and fuller a-line shape. It comes in a ton of colors and stripe options, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top, it’s an oversized fit.

Pants & Skirts //

Someone book me a trip to St. Tropez!! Doesn’t this outfit look straight out of the French Riviera?! If only I was that chic! I’m cuckoo for the print on these wide leg linen pants! They aren’t lined, so they’re lightweight, but not sheer, with a side zip and flat front. They’re nice and long for the tall gals… I’m wearing them with a wedge, so would have to hem for flats.

The cropped shirt has a fun camp style with flap pockets and twist front. The cotton is very sturdy, giving it more of a jacket weight than shirt.

Fit Tip: I’m exactly between a size 2 and 4 on these pants, so if you’re fuller though the bottom, I’d size up one. The shirt is true to size, I’m in a size XS.

Pull-on skirts are my jam… they’re easy and cute, and feel more pulled together than shorts. Not to mention, uber flattering! This darling embroidered skirt has an elastic waist and drawstring, with cute tassel ties. It’s on the shorter side, so I’ll stick to flat sandals rather than wedges for this one.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small skirt and XS tank.

I shared this lightweight cotton top in last week’s 10 Darling Spring Tops post HERE, and couldn’t wait to pair it with the matching skirt! Made of the same lightweight cotton, with the prettiest hand-printed block pattern, it’s darling paired as a set, or keep it simple with a basic tee or tank.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS blouse, but the cuffs are a touch tight. Size XS skirt, but would consider sizing up for more room in the waist and a longer length.

Want to take a break from denim this season? Wide leg pants are where it’s at!! These linen-blend pants have an elastic waistband in the back for an easy and comfy fit, and a flattering wide leg. The bold purple is so on-trend and surprisingly versatile, but they also come in a range of other colors and neutrals.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS in both tops and the pants, but would prefer a Small in the floral tank for a flowier fit.

Shorts //

Pull-on shorts that feel like a skirt… sign me up! I love shorts with a flowy material and wider leg so there’s not pulling across the thighs, bum, or through the stride. These are so soft, fully lined, and easily dress up or down.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing size Small shorts, XS tank, and Small top.

Target wins again! This textured cotton set is darling worn together, or as separates… and so comfy you’ll want it in every color and stripe!

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

Striped Linen Shorts
Striped Button Down | Leather Slide Sandals | Chain Coin Necklace (code SUGARPLUM10) | Stretch Chain Bracelet | Straw Hat

 

I might just live in sets this season!! Just like dresses, they take the work out of styling an outfit… but give you so many options as separates, too! This gauzy cotton set is super soft, with an elastic pull-on short with loose legs.

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

Swim Cover-Up //

This darling cover-up is so popular the stock keeps going in and out! I love the romper style with relaxed fit and cute collar… so much in fact, that I have it in both black and white!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small cover-up.

Pajamas //

Attention all hot sleepers! This pajama set is FOR YOU! Jersey knit that silky soft, but somehow cool to the touch! In fact, I’m cooler wearing it than not!! It comes in tons of neutral colors and launders beautifully.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS set.

Pajama Set
Heart Necklace | Small Hoop Earrings

 

Cutest pajama award goes to this darling plaid set! Made of a lightweight cotton, it’s super soft and perfect for Summer.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS set, but need a Small for looser shorts.

Plaid Shorts Set

See what I mean about all this month’s finds?! Dangerously good!! I won’t even tell you how many styles I’m keeping… you know, in case Mr. Sugarplum happens to read! But safe to say you’ll be seeing many of them on repeat this season!

 

As for your favorites, these were the most popular from last month’s Dressing Room Diaries HERE.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 pant and they’re a touch snug, so I’d suggest sizing up (which might require a hem, given they’re already full-length).

    Love the jean jacket from Avara with the little puckered shoulders! What size did you get in that? You and I are similar sized and thought I’d ask if you sized up, like many of the site recommendations say. Thank you!
