Sugarplum Style, Vol. 9

Hey, hey friends….happy Friday! I hope you all had a grand week. Today is the final day of the BHG photo shoot…and I finally got permission to share more of the details with you, so I hope to have a post with some of the behind-the-scenes scoop soon. It’s been an eye-opening experience, that’s for sure. And thank you for your excitement on the latest round of reno progress yesterday! Hard to believe we are moving in a week from today!!!

I’m taking a break from construction to talk fashion, with the next round of Sugarplum Style. I’ll layer a shirt under just about anything for a pop of color and pattern, including a striped hoodie.

We had some warm days this month, so I was able to pull out the lighter-weight scarves, but still paired them with my favorite cozy cardi. I’m forever a sucker for floral + stripes.

Oh hey there, same coral wrap that I can’t seem to stop wearing…this time buttoned, and layered over stripes. If you’re not a fan of the drape, you might want to consider this cardi, or this one with pockets.

Spots + Stripes + (faux) Snakeskin…this cheery combo brightened my day.

Typical Texas…as soon as we adjusted to warm temps, it turned frosty again. Fair isle over stripes to the rescue.

Distressed Jeans (similar) | Boot Socks | Rainboots

Lightweight scarves are my go-to for most every season…I love the pop of color, and they brighten your face.

Layered turtlenecks…you know it was cold that day. Not Winter Storm Juno cold, but Texas cold, anyway.

I found these plaid pants on clearance for $15 and just couldn’t resist. At that price, they were worth the risk.

Black Pumps | Watch | Tassel Bracelet

I’ve wanted rainboots for years, but always thought them impractical in our area. But I am shocked at just how many times I’ve been able to legitimately wear them this year. Now I look forward to rainy days!

And just like layering a lightweight floral over a long-sleeve top this time of year, I also pair a flannel plaid over tees, when the weather allows it. I’m crazy for this one, too.

I hope these posts
inspire 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. And if I haven’t convinced you of the merit of a striped top after this round, then I don’t think I ever will!

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! Happy weekend, lovebugs!
