Sugarplum Style, Vol. 13

YOU GUYS!!! I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate all your comments on our {One Room Challenge} Reveal! You totally made my week, and I’ve been walking around with a goofy grin on my face for days. Well, goofier than usual.

I’m thrilled you love the room…and it motivates me that much more get cranking on to the next room makeover…and to actually get it done in under a year. #bigtalker #dreamer I’ve got a few more posts planned before we move on, including a ‘Shop My Room,’ featuring exclusive discount codes from several of the retailers, and a tutorial on hanging drapes in a bay window.

For today’s {Fashion Friday}, I’m sharing Volume 13 of Sugarplum Style…snapshots of my everyday outfits, mixed-and-matched using items in my closet.

It’s been a rainy Spring, so I decided to make my own sunshine with these bright jeans. I’ll pair them with brighter colors later in the season, but chambray is always a good choice when you want to subdue your outfit a notch. Plus, by dressing it up with the necklace, I was actually able to wear this combo to work.

You’ve seen a variation of this outfit a few times already…I think my cost-per-wear on this jacket is about a nickel by now.

We need to pause a moment, and gaze upon my new bag. To say I’m smitten would be a gross understatement! Remember my striped bag from last year (seen 87 times here)? It got a preppy makeover with colorful stripes and a circle monogram!

It’s also a little smaller, with zip-top closure, and a ton of inside compartments, making it a perfect everyday bag. You can still customize your color and pattern…even the colorful stripes are your choice. I hope you like it, because I’ll be carrying it for the next 5 months. #asyouwere

Update: Use MAMA10 for 10% off site wide until Sunday!!!!!! #thatwasalotofexclamationpoints

It’s interesting to see a month’s worth of outfits in one spot…clearly I’m having a blue moment. But there’s just something so crisp about blue and white! And yep…my cognac zipper tote you guys always ask about…has been restocked!

You’ll notice I’ve been alternating between two pair of neutral sandals (these and these). These strappy ones are a little higher on my ankle, so I just fold a 1-inch cuff on my jeans until all of the sandal is exposed. #littlenuggetforyou

Who said party dresses are just for parties? I pulled this baby out for date night. I’ve got a Day to Night post with it coming up soon! Speaking of parties…this dress is just asking to dance!

You’ve seen the next few pics already, but I like to include them in these Sugarplum Style posts so you can have everyday style inspiration in one spot.

Oh hey there, same dress, different color. I told you…regardless of the situation…it never lets me down!
My exact aztec tassel clutch sold out, but I just found this one and I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it! This one is super cute too, at a little lower price point.

I’m beginning to think Stripes-and-Florals is my middle name. And I’m not complaining.

And finally, my go-to, no-brainer, always-cute, Spring casual uniform. These jeans are so soft and stretchy, but with enough structure to not show all the bumps and lumps. #aintnobodywanttoseemybumbsandlumps I recommend sizing up one to leave a little room for tacos. And lumps.

I hope these posts inspire you to create new combinations from your closet! The key isn’t to have more clothes, but to mix up what you do have in new and different ways. 
You can catch up with past installments of Sugarplum Style here, or follow my everyday-style outfits on InstaGram. Make sure you’re following my Facebook page, too…that’s where I post deals, steals, sales and goodies!
