Sugarplum Style, Vol. 33

Cheers to Friday! Thanks so much for your excitement about our news yesterday! Things have a way of getting sideways during these Challenges, so I know it will be your enthusiasm that keeps me going! I have to say, I’m crazy excited with the design and can’t wait to share it, and all the plans, with you next week!

Today it’s your monthly dose of Sugarplum Style…snapshots of my everyday outfits I post to Instagram and Facebook, created by mixing-and-matching items in my closet. It’s still pretty warm around here, but I had a chilly few days in New York, too, so there are teases of Fall mixed in the Summer bunch.

Knit dresses are one of my favorite transitional pieces…throw on boots and a jacket and you’re halfway to Fall, without sweating your face off. This jacket pretty much saved me in New York last week. Plus it’s dang cute! (Size down one in it.)

Thank goodness I checked the weather app the night before I left….rain, rain, and more rain! Can’t say I minded the opportunity to wear my rainboots!

This #littleblackdress has become my go-to for parties, night’s out, and festive events. It has such a flattering neckline, but not too short. Plus, it allows room for dessert, because #priorities. 

Do I go to the gym? No. Do I wear gym clothes more often than street clothes? Yes. But it’s still pretty cute, don’t you think? These pants are hands-down my favorite, and the sneakers are like walking on clouds. 

It may be too warm for most of my Fall clothes, but that doesn’t mean I can’t carry my favorite Fall bag! Don’t panic…it’s just printed canvas (not fur!!!)…but you’d never know unless you touched it. (Use code SUGARPLUM10 for 10% off!) And thank you for asking about #maggiesugarplum…she’s back to her perfectly adorable self! 

Laid-back travel style in stripes and sneakers.

I breathed new life into this old dress with a moto jacket and booties, and loved the juxtaposition of biker chic with the lace. (See the dress here.)

Clearly my {5 Ways} series on wearing white jeans after Labor Day inspired me, since I wore them more often than any other pants last month! And how excited are you for plaid season?!

Another knit dress + utility jacket combo…it just works!

Turns out my rainboots were the best thing I brought to NYC, and I stayed dry and warm for a full day of exploring.

This floral dress is great for a night out, but equally cute with a jacket and booties.

I wore this same top and jean combo this Summer, but adding boots and a darker tassel extends it into Fall. 

 Striped Peplum Top | White Jeans | Booties | Deer Print Bag
Tassel Necklace | Ring | Watch

We’re actually headed somewhere (hopefully) cool next week, so I’ve already started scheming outfits. These booties were one of my favorites last year, and I’m just itching to pull them out again! They are insanely comfortable, and the little tassel-tie gets me every time.

Oversized Sweater | Distressed Jeans | Tassel-Tie Booties | Deer Print Bag | Scarf

I’m actually starting to worry I’ll never be able to wear a scarf again in Texas?! #desperatelyseekingfall But when it does show up, I’ll be ready!

Blanket Scarf (similar smaller version) | Striped Tee | White Jeans
Similar Cognac Bag | Sunglasses

This post was actually a Dressing Room Diaries, but it got such a big response on social media, I thought you might want to see it, too. I’m pretty smitten with all the feminine touches like ruffles and peplum in the styles this season!

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. Except this jacket and this $25 scarf, you need those. #trustme #enabler

    I've purchased several items that you have suggested & you have been spot on with the sizing recommendations. Just received the military green utility jacket & I LOVE IT…the fit is great! I purchased the XS, and the arm length is perfect! Thank you!
