Hey friends, how was your weekend? Ours was a mixture of active and lazy, and chock-full of family time…so basically perfect! I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon purging our closets to donate for Hurricane Relief. It was a lot easier letting go of things we still love, but don’t really need, knowing they were going to such a great place.
A lot of you have reached out to inquire about our beloved Anna Maria Island, and from what I’ve heard, they escaped mostly unscathed! I think we may need to plan a return visit to see for ourselves! I emailed our friend who owns this stunning home in Vieques, Puerto Rico, and she too, said all was well (see our Vieques Trip Report here)! Sadly, another of our island favorites, St. John, was not so lucky. It’s almost impossible to comprehend the devastation, and I can only pray our donations and contributions are helping in some small way.
Today it’s time for another round of Sugarplum Style, snapshots of my everyday outfits I share on Instagram and Facebook, created by mixing and matching items in my closet. My hope is that they inspire you to stretch your wardrobe further by mixing up what you already have, and thoughtfully add new things.
And friends, the weather has been a mixed bag of Summer, and wanna-be Fall…so the outfits are all over the place, starting with this peplum tee and sandal combo (pretty much the same from last week’s Transitioning to Fall series!). The bright tassel necklace makes it more Summery, as do the sandals, but the long-sleeve tee was perfect for the cooler morning. I’ll have to retire the pineapple bag for the season soon, so I’m carrying it as much as possible until then!
I’m loving this Flashdance vibe and not even embarrassed about it! Should I be?! It’s so casual, but with a touch of sass. I love the banded waist for creating a drapey fit, and not just overly slouchy.
I really can not get enough of this dress…it’s been perfect for date night, work meetings, and even a school event. I’ve since added two more colors, so hopefully you’re not sick of seeing it yet!
Stripes are my favorite outfit base because they’re so fun paired with larger patterns like floral and leopard. This combo will be a Fall uniform, for sure. And that scarf is lightweight and gauzy (not at all bulky), and under $25!
A casual date night out in my fave denim skirt, and kicked up a notch with a one-shoulder ruffle and statement earrings. I’ll continue to wear both these pieces into the next season, but pair the top with jeans, and the skirt with a long-sleeve shirt or sweater.
This workwear style was a popular look from the Summer, but the skirt easily works for both Fall and Winter, and it’s on super sale!
Saying goodbye to Summer with this darling smocked top and red sunnies…these white cut-offs were my go-tos this Summer. I think I’ll hang on to them as long as possible, pairing them with sweatshirts!
I get asked about what to wear for casual gatherings and weekend sporting events…well, you’re looking at it! The Shoreline sneakers are my favorite casual shoe for sporty styles, and I love finding casual tops in team colors.
Fit Tip: I sized down half in my sneakers, and use this solution to keep them white. Can you believe this is the same pair I’ve had for two years?!
The easiest way to take an outfit from basic to next level…statement earrings! Plus, they’re serious compliment magnets!
This tassel necklace never gets old and makes most every top cuter! And these sandals were my fave purchase of the season…they go with absolutely everything!!
The best part of my day is when I come home and get to slip into this snuggly cardigan!! Even better will be when it cools off and I can wear it outside my air-conditioned house!
Transitioned my simple date night a more Fall appropriate look with the addition of peep-toe booties…and the earrings made it sassy and fun.
Oh look, here’s the crepe shirtdress again, but in navy! I wore this look to a meeting, then out to dinner and felt perfectly comfortable and pulled-together.
That’s it for today, I hope you found some new outfit inspiration, and fresh ideas for mixing things up in your closet!
