Top Ten | September

Happy hump day from Los Angeles! Today is the big day for the Gibson x Glam Holiday Collection photoshoot, and it’s jam-packed with sequins, velvet, and lace. And of course a hefty dose of leopard!

I’ll recap the experience here, but you can follow it in real-time on my Instagram Story.

Today we’re taking a look back at September, and the top posts of the month. It’s nice to take a moment each month and look back at the projects and content I created, and take note of what you liked most. In case you took an internet hiatus, here’s a peek of what you might have missed on Hi Sugarplum last month…

This month was heavy on the travel content, starting with our trip through the British Isles (London, Ireland, Scotland and France). It was an amazing combination of bustling cities and rugged countryside. I split the travel diary up by Week One and Week Two.


Aren’t these lace dresses gorgeous? What if I told you they were about $100?! Yep! Marks & Spencer is wildly popular in the UK, and I’m so excited to have found them for myself now! Both of these head-to-toe looks are under $150! #bamwhat!


Have you ever had professional photos done while on family vacation? We decided to do them at the last minute while in Kauai for our 20th Wedding Anniversary trip, and it was the best decision!! Not only do we have the memories of that special trip, but I have the photos to keep forever!


A blouse too pretty for just Monday thru Friday or 9 to 5! I styled it 3 ways to prove it in this Work to Weekend!


I shared our Alaskan Travel Diary, including all the ports, activities, and what I wore…plus, packing tips!

The darling Mama Sugarplum shared her highly-requested morning and evening skincare routine!


I lived in fleece pullovers for most of our travels, and as soon as Texas cools down, I’ll be pulling them out again! It’s safe to say our entire family is Patagonia obsessed. (Pssst, there’s an exclusive discount code for HSP readers!)

I partnered with JCPenney to style some affordable transitional Fall looks…and yep, even through in a belt bag!

September also featured another round of my Amazon Haul, which has quickly become a reader-fave. I’m thrilled to hear ya’ll are Prime addicts, too!


Formal Night or Smart Casual?! What are those exactly? I shared looks for both to inspire your date nights or cruises!


We also had another round of Sugarplum Style, and everyone’s favorite, Dressing Room Diaries, featuring tons of new finds, and recent outfits. I also threw in a Faves Under $50, featuring fun new things I’ve got my eye on.
