Sugarplum Style, Vol. 76 + Best of After-Christmas Sales

I hope you all had the most magical holiday, and are still enjoying time with family. We had a busy few days making the rounds, and hosting family, so today we are having a ball being couch potatoes, and playing with all the new goodies. All this family time has been good for my soul, and I’m excited to have the full Winter Break still ahead of us.

Turns out, Santa reads my blog, because this perfume and ring were under the tree, along with this kookie appliance that I couldn’t be more excited about! What’s your favorite gift you received this year?

If you got Christmas cash or gift cards, then you’re in luck because the sales are coming in hot today! The biggest being Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale, with tons of things 40% off or more, like Tory Burch leopard sandals, Ugg slippers & boots, and my fave wedge booties. Even the entire Gibson x Glam Collection is included, perfect for New Year’s Eve.

I’ve rounded up my fave sales at the end of this post, but 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.

Plaid and puffer vests are pretty much my go-to outfits this time of year, and this popover style shirt is super lightweight and 60% off! Boots are on sale, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS in both the shirt and vest.

Plaid Popover Top (60% off!) | Quilted Vest | Jeans | Boots (on sale!) | Earrings

This sweater is extra-soft and snuggly, and comes in tons of beautiful colors (and on sale under $40). The chic coat under $100.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS sweater and size 0 coat.

We had an early-morning flight to Palm Springs (more details coming soon!), so I reached for some of my comfiest pieces…this fleecey v-neck and denim jeggings.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS top and jeggings.

V-Neck Tunic | Jegging Jeans | Initial Necklace | Sneakers | Carry-On Suitcase | Leather Tote

For our last night in Palm Springs, I kept it simple with all black. This tunic has a fun layered effect you can wear in the front or back.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS top and 26 jeans.

Turtleneck Tunic | Black Jeans | Leopard Flats | Sunglasses

More plaid and puffers…this herringbone vest is thick with great texture!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS shirt, but size up one in the vest.

Herringbone Vest | Plaid Shirt | Jeans | Belt | Earrings | Sunglasses

Cozy joggers for the flight home. This is my most-worn travel style, it’s so comfy but the jean jacket keeps it stylish.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS joggers, petite available for shorter length.

Jean Jacket | Tee | Joggers | Sneakers | Carry-On Suitcase | Leather Tote

There’s the layered tunic again, this time with the wrap in the back. Paired with the stretchy jeggings, of course, because I can’t seem to stop wearing them! My sneakers are extremely lightweight and ridiculously comfy, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in both.

Turtleneck Tunic | Jegging Jean | Sneaker

How cute is this plaid puffer? Love the shades of pink, blue, and green.

Fit Tip: It’s oversized, I’d go down one.

Plaid Vest (also here) | Chambray Shirt | Black Jeans | Sunglasses

How have I never been to Palm Springs? 75-degrees in December!

V-Neck Pullover | Bralette | Shorts | Flip Flops | Sunglasses

Lace and leopard for a night out last week…love this new cape/poncho sweater. Wear it open or snap together for a tall collar.

Fit Tip: Lace top is XS.

Leopard Collar Cape | Lace Top | Black Jeans | Knee Boots | Belt

This dupe belt is one of the most-popular from my last Amazon Fashion Finds post, and I love how it chics-up basic outfits.

Super Soft Sweater | Jeans | Belt | Sunglasses | Earrings

I wore this combo for a holiday night out, and now it’s all 40% off!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS in both.

Velvet Halter | Satin Pants | Heels | Earrings | Sunglasses

And finally, we had a ball at the Dallas Symphony this year…and this $20 skirt and Little Miss’s coats were a huge hit on social! I’ve since ordered this skirt in two more colors for year-round wear.

Fit Tip: My top is XS & skirt is true to size (I’m wearing a 2, but would prefer a 0).

Sequin Top (40% off!) | Midi Skirt (only $20!) | Heels | Fur-Trim Coat (60% off!)

That’s it for today, I hope you found some new outfit inspiration, and fresh ideas for mixing things up in your closet! I’d love to hear what new combinations of patterns or colors you’re wearing.

    Wow. Great stylin’. Every single thing goes w/something else on the post. The red halter would look great w/a pair of dressy or casual/faded jeans.
    Finally, someone has spotted a real looking Santa!

    Thank you for sharing your best sales! Can we talk about how Nordstrom styled the puffer vest on their site? I mean, are they even trying to sell clothes? Do they just want it to look as unflattering as possible? Thank goodness Nordstrom works with a lot of influencers like you who can style their clothes much better than their website images!

    I tried the code for Colleen Rothschild and it doesn’t seem to be working. Is there another one to try?
