Cheers to Friday, friends, and the weekend ahead! Our kids start school Monday, so we’re in major prep mode this weekend. And hopefully getting to bed earlier than usual, to make the first morning a little easier. I always intend to slowly move their schedule back in the weeks leading up to school…but it never quite happens. Oh well, they’ll be back in the swing soon enough!
Thanks for your love on this week’s recap of Top Posts & Links of July (including that fun video with Little Miss!), and Summer of Style featuring J.Crew’s new floral collection. The rest of August will be jam-packed with tons of home projects, back-to-school styles, and some travel recaps. We’re also just a few short weeks away from a huge voyage with our friends at Princess Cruises! I can’t wait to share where we’re headed this year! (See our past cruises here.)
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. I hope they inspire you to stretch your wardrobe further by mixing up what you already have, and thoughtfully add new things. These are all from our recent beach trip to Anna Maria, so be prepared for lots of summer inspiration!
It’s a quick flight from Dallas to Tampa, but I still opted for comfort with stretchy jeans and a soft tee. This oversized market tote was the perfect carry-on for my laptop, etc (see the contents of my carry-on bag here), and doubled as my beach bag upon arrival.
Fit Tip: The jeans are soft and stretchy with hidden pockets. Both jeans and tee are true to size, I’m wearing XS and 26.
I never met a striped tee I didn’t love, and this one took it next-level with a pink ringer collar!! It’s super soft and a little oversized. Also, be prepared for lots of #beachhair. I don’t pack a hairdryer or curling iron for these trips!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.
I shared a fun one-piece swimsuit in yesterday’s Summer of Style post…no one makes them better than J.Crew! This french-tie top is of my favorite two-pieces…it’s an adjustable fit with lots of support. I wear it when we’re extra-active on the beach and in the water. Plus, it’s just cute!
Fit Tip: I size up one in two-pieces, and am wearing smalls in both pieces.
I shared this knit romper in my first Amazon Haul post last month, and it made the perfect cover-up, as well as easy throw-on outfit with sandals. The inseam is a little longer for extra length.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, with the straps adjusted to make it smaller.
This jersey knit tank dress is equally cute and comfy. It feels like pajamas, but easily transitions from a swim cover-up to chic dress for dinner out. It has a racerback shape and longer length. It comes in 9 colors and now 40% off!
Fit Tip: I’m in an XS, but if you’re in-between, I’d size down.
Another top from my Amazon Haul…how is this darling embroidery under $20?! I paired it with some old pink shorts for a colorful, easy look.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small top and size 2 shorts.
Another day, another swimsuit! I love this ruffle top so much, I have it in both navy and white. It’s fully-lined with removable cups, which provide lots of coverage and support. It’s great for active days by the beach or pool, too. (No wardrobe malfunctions with this one!)
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small in both pieces.
This jean skirt is just as comfy and versatile as my favorite cut-off shorts, but taken up a notch. And this striped tee has been a go-to for several years now…I love it almost year-round (it’s super cute under a military jacket!).
Fit Tip: Both are true, I’m wearing XS and 26.
I rarely sleep in, even on vacations. Which means quiet mornings all to myself! This was my work view all week, and I loved starting my day here, in these soft pajamas. (I’ll share the link to this rental in my recap post soon!)
Fit Tip: Pajamas are true, I’m wearing XS.
Salut to the long summer days! Love the shrunken fit of this graphic tee…the olive is darling paired with white. (The tee comes in a fun red/white combo now!)
Fit Tip: The tee is fitted, I’m wearing XS
Remember this flattering-on-everyone swimsuit I shared last month? I have received countless selfies of ya’ll in the suit, and everyone agrees it’s a stunner. Which is even crazier give the price!!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, which is true to size for me with swimwear.
Pink and gingham forever. Seriously…my fave color and my fave pattern. This shirt is lightweight, but not sheer, and so cute worn untucked, tucked, and knotted.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS.
Is there anything better than a jersey knit swing dress on a hot summer day? I throw them on over my swimsuit, or with sandals for a casual day. This one is as soft as your favorite pajamas, but not sheer or overly thin (in black anyway).
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.
I’ve been wearing this racerback tank dress for years…my collection is up to three now. It’s just so chic and effortless, and so cute with sandals, flip-flips and sneakers. I wear it most over my swimsuit.
Fit Tip: I size up to a small for a less body-con fit.
I shared this full look yesterday, but had to include since it was a fave outfit from the trip. And the only time I made myself presentable. But really, you want these shorts!!!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 0 in the silk tank, and 26 shorts.
A rare shot of all four of us! Can we please go back to this family vacation bubble?!? I’ll share more snaps of the trip and family soon!
Just as casual for the flight home (but this pullover tucked in my bag for the chilly airport!). My racerback tank is from the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection, now on sale!
Fit Tip: All true to size, XS tank and 26 jeans.
That’s it for today, I hope you found some new outfit inspiration, and fresh ideas for mixing things up in your closet!
