This & That

Happy Labor Day, friends, and cheers to the extended weekend! I hope you’re able to enjoy an extra day off, and you’re doing anything but laboring! I’m currently eyeball-deep in boxes, but having so much fun turning this new house into a home, that it doesn’t feel like work at all!

I’ve got more scoop on the move, plus a farewell to our beloved home coming soon. (If you missed the announcement, you can find it HERE.)

Today I’ve got a hodgepodge of new finds and latest happenings to share, and of course it wouldn’t be a holiday weekend without incredible sales! So let’s get to it, shall we!?

College Bound //

It was an absolute blast having this guy around more this Summer, and although it won’t compare to the shock of the first time he left (read a little about that HERE), it always stings to see him go. This time we simply loaded his car, and he drove off by himself!

You know they’re growing up when you take them to Walmart and offer up pretty much anything they want… and all they get is a toaster, coffee maker, and plates!

(Lady) Gaga Over This Outfit //

I surprised Little Miss to Lady Gaga tickets last week, and we had a ball! She’s an incredible entertainer, so if you get the chance to see her, I’d definitely go! This was our first big concert together, and I can’t wait for more!

Scoop Bodysuit | Initial Necklace | Gold Hoop Earrings | Removable Strap

There was definitely some seriously good people watching at the show! I kept my outfit simple with a bodysuit and jeans, and of course my new clear crossbody bag. It’s the perfect size and shape for concerts and sporting events.

Scoop Bodysuit | Initial Necklace | Gold Hoop EarringsClear Crossbody Bag (Black Large) | Removable Strap

Here’s a peek at the back of the bodysuit… I’m so smitten with it! It doesn’t have a lot of coverage, so probably more for the small-boobs crew. I wore it with my favorite nippies found HERE.

Scoop Bodysuit | Patterned Midi Skirt


All The Accessories //

Speaking of bags, if you’re a fan of the neoprene totes, this one is a must! The pattern is absolutely darling (and surprisingly neutral!), and the price can’t be beat! There are so many fun prints to choose from, and the quality is spot-on!

Spotty Tote Bag (Color: Meteor Shower)
Racerback Tank (Color: Khaki [No Coffee]) | White Jeans (code SUGARPLUM10 to save 10%) | Chain Mules


Between the bags and booties, I definitely hit the accessory jackpot in my last Amazon Haul (found HERE)! The booties are a faux-suede of manmade materials, but a really cute style and great price! I love that the ankle is more fitted for a more flattering look with skirts and dresses, and also fitting under the hem of straight leg jeans.

Fit Tip: I find the booties true-to-size.

Currently Reading //

I read American Royals so fast, I immediately followed up with the sequel Majesty, and now I’m halfway through Rivals! The author Katharine McGee is a Texas gal! It’s lighthearted and easy-reading chic-lit.


Back in Stock //

These oversized sunnies were one of my favorite finds of the entire Summer, and y’all agreed because they never stay in stock for long! They’re designer-inspired for sure (I’m looking at you, Chanel) and great quality. They’re back in stock as of hitting publish on this post, but no promises of how long that will last!


Crushing on Colorblock //

I’ve found several darling styles at Walmart recently, including this throw-back rugby shirt and cute popover. Y’all know how I feel about a good pullover!! (Spoiler: I can’t get enough!)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small in everything, but would prefer an XS in the rugby.

Half-Zip Popover | Rugby Shirt

Loungewear Love //

I shared this set in a recent Monday Mail Day (seen HERE), and I don’t remember the last time something sparked so many messages!! It’s truly the softest thing you’ll wear, plus a cute and flattering fit. I wore it three times the week it arrived! Now let’s just hope Target makes it in more colors!

Fit Tip: I’m in a Small in both pieces.

Lounge Sweatshirt | Lounge Shorts


Oh My Stars //

SUGARPLUM FAVE FIND! Designer style sneaks without the designer price tag! These sneaks are obviously inspired by the trendy Golden Goose pairs, but I actually love these more because they don’t have that ‘dirty’ look to them.

Super lightweight & comfy… and oh, did I mention only $69 (or $49 with code HSN2022 for first time shoppers!) They come with these black laces & a neutral tan set to change things up. They run big though, so def size down.

Sugarplum Fit Class //

Our Sugarplum Fit Classes are still going strong on Zoom! My former college roommate is a trainer, and leads us on fun, new workouts every Tuesday and Friday. Our fun chit-chats make the time go so fast! They’re open to anyone, so click HERE to join us!

This Set Is Necessary //

I discovered the Nécessaire line of body washes and lotions last year, and was hooked after the first use. It’s like skincare for your body, and truly makes such a big difference! This new Body Treatment set is a great combo if you’re fighting dry, scaly summer skin!

It’s a $70 value for just $49 with code CASSIE10, plus a free $35 sunscreen! Code CASSIE10 also works for 10% off site-wide. (I’m obsessed with the Eucalyptus Body Wash!)

Our Place Sale! //

The Our Place Goodbye Summer Sale is ending soon, with 25% off almost everything! It’s a great time to update your kitchen ware, or grab early holiday gifts! I just got the new Mini Pot and Pan, and love the smaller size, with same great non-stick finish! Shop the full sale HERE.

There’s no maximum on the number of BOGO… or rather, BOGTwo, so make your holiday and birthday gift lists for mom, sisters, teachers, girlfriends, and stock up now!

Game Set Match //

I haven’t stepped foot on the tennis court since I shot these photos, but I’ve worn the new Vuori Court Collection non-stop! The skirt has replaced athletic shorts for both workouts and running around town. I love the built-in shorts and bra of this set. It’s both cute and comfy… even if I’m just running to Starbucks!

Mudra Plyo Tank | Volley Skirt | Adidas Sneakers | Aviators


Best Hand Soap of Your Life //

That’s a bold, and slightly dramatic statement, I know… but I fully stand behind it. If you love the Le Labo or Santal scents, you will be blown away by this SIX DOLLAR hand soap. Plus, the chic matte black bottle looks great next to your kitchen or bathroom sink.

    I clearly remember the posts you made about your son’s drop off. And now here I am in the same spot. Eldest son dropped this weekend and I am a basket case. Helpful to know others feel it too.

    Hi Cassie!
    I was wondering what do you recommend to wear under a white tee that is kind of sheer? I ordered the Amazon basics white tee that you had shared on your site but I wasn’t sure what to wear underneath. I was also wondering do you have a favourite workout tee?
    Thank you so much!
