Happy Monday, lovebugs! How was your weekend? Is it me, or is January buzzing by at a good little clip? Normally the month seems to drag on and on, but here we are, already in the last week or so. Hopefully that’s a sign that this new year will be a smooth one.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s also the season of love. Pink and red is forever one of my favorite color combos, no matter the time of year. Today I’ve got some darling styles perfect for the season (and beyond!), plus some sweet gift ideas.
Valentine Style //
Feels like a t-shirt, looks like a darling top! Kicking off the round-up with one of my top finds… this cotton tee is thick and soft, with the cutest gathered shoulders and full sleeves, and the cutest embroidered heart.
Let’s talk about these jeans for a second (you can see them in full length HERE). Y’all requested some more budget-friendly styles that look similar to my beloved Mother jeans, and these definitely fit the bill! A high rise and light rinse, they are a traditional denim, but with the right amount of stretch. They have a cute cropped length and a straight leg perfect for sneakers, flats, and booties. And bonus, they’re a great price! Find them HERE.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: The top is a relaxed fit, I’m in a size XS. The jeans are TTS out of the box, but do stretch throughout the day, so I’d recommend sizing down if you aren’t looking for a boyfriend fit.
Cozy and cute, this relaxed sweatshirt is a great medium weight and is lined in the softest fleece. The letters are a textured appliqué, while the cute little heart is made of sequins. Pair it with everything from jeans to pajama pants.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: I sized up to a Small, but it’s true-to-size.
It’s hard to beat a classic button-up, especially when it’s a crisp cotton and the cutest combo of pink and red stripes! Pair this one with skirts and trousers, keep it casual with denim, and layer it under sweaters and sweatshirts for a little peek of preppy (I styled something similar HERE).
Sugarplum Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS for a slim fit, it does have a bit of stretch for a comfortable fit through the shoulders.
Have you seen a cuter cardigan?! I think not! This ribbed sweater is crazy soft and cozy, but with a chic, preppy style. Pair it casually with denim or wear it open over a camisole, it’s a definite compliment-magnet!
Sugarplum Fit Tip: It’s true to size, I’m in a size XS.
Forever swooning over stripes! This darling tee is not only pink striped, but has the cutest embroidered heart detail. It’s a super-soft cotton, and great quality.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: I sized up for a relaxed fit, I’m in a size Small.
I never miss the chance to include my go-to blazer, especially when it comes in the most delicious shade of fuchsia! After falling in love with this blazer years ago, I asked my friends at Gibsonlook if they could make it in pink. Not only did they say yes, but they let me choose the shade!!
So obviously I couldn’t love it more!! The blazer is a thick knit that has such a flattering and comfy fit with a notch collar and nipped-in waist. We even lined it in little pink polka dots for an added pop if you wear it cuffed. And the best news? This blazer is 15% off TODAY ONLY with code SUGARPLUM15!
The tank is a long-time fave and the perfect layering piece… not to mention a great price.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: The blazer is true-to-size, but I prefer it in a shrunken fit, so I size down to an XXS. The tank is true, I’m in a size 2.
A darling tee for the season, this one has navy stripes and cute little embroidered hearts. It’s made of a thinner cotton with just a touch of stretch.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: It’s a little more fitted, I sized up to a Small.
A style that works in your closet year-round, this fully lined woven top has a ruffle neck and Swiss dot texture. It’s the perfect flattering shade of red, and is easily dressed up or down.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: I’m in a size XS.
A sweater I’ve been wearing on repeat this season, this crewneck is so soft and stretchy, with the best relaxed fit! It comes in several colors and stripes, and is a piece you’ll reach for often.
Sugarplum Fit Tip: It’s a relaxed fit, I’m in a size XS.
Another fun sweatshirt, this one is from one of my favorite small boutiques. It’s an oversized fit and lined in a soft terry. I love the soft blush color and fun appliqué letters. Plus, code CASSIE15 saves you 15%!
Sugarplum Fit Tip: It’s an oversized fit, I’m in a size Small.
