{5 Ways} to Wear a Maxi Dress

Oh happy Friday! Another week down, and a busy weekend ahead. I'm living it up in Big D for the next few days at a blogging conference. Basically a reason to hang out with some of the amazing friends I've met through blogging. Yes Mom, I met them on the internets. No, they aren't ax murderers. ;)

I've had a lot of requests for a {5 Ways} Maxi Dresses post, and since I'm living in my maxi skirts and dresses lately, it was an easy request for today's Fashion Friday.

Hi Sugarplum | {5 Ways} to Wear a Maxi Dress

There are tons of maxi dress options right now...from budget finds like this cutie, to higher-end ones like this. I went with this one, priced in the middle, mostly for the petite length (no alterations, yay!), and flattering cut. I have this one, as well, and adore it (I did have to have it hemmed.)

So let's style this basic maxi dress {5 Ways}!

{One Room Challenge} Week 4

Welcome back to Week 4 of the {One Room Challenge}. We are officially on the backside of this thing, and my palms are seriously sweaty. Lots of things arrived this week, but not a lot actually got done. So basically the UPS man did all the work.

Let's recap for those just popping in, or had a memory lapse....we recently moved, so I had a whole house of rooms from which to choose for the ORC, but Mr. SP and I decided to put ourselves first this time (as opposed to last, like our previous home)...so I'm tackling our Master Bedroom!

Week One I showed the Before shots and room dimensions...and Week Two was all about the Design and Floor Plan. Last week I revealed our crossover to the dark side, and I was thrilled to hear ya'll are swooning over the dark walls with me!

Okay, now that we're all on the same page...let's get after Week Four! Starting with the biggest change...the new Linden Black Duvet & Shams from Crane & Canopy. I know it's popular with bloggers, but it's just that good! I wanted the bedding to feel clean, yet dramatic, and also serve as a canvas for the rest of the fabrics. #doneanddone

Hi Sugarplum | One Room Challenge Week 4

If you recall from the original mood board, my plan included two white-washed nightstands. Then they sold out, with a backorder date of May 15. Normally that would be okay, but this isn't normal. This is One Week Challenge! #6weeksbaby

Hi Sugarplum | One Room Challenge Week 4

I'll admit I got a little panicky, and my voice may have bordered on shrill when I realized I needed a Plan B. But Mr. SP said, 'How about some wood to mix up all the padded stuff you have going?' 

That's guy speak for, 'Warm wood tones would be a nice balance to all the upholstered pieces in the room.'

And just like his idea for the Kitchen backsplash tile, the man was right. The wood looks amazing next to the dark walls, and adds warmth and texture.

Tip: Don't limit yourself to just nightstands beside the bed. These beauties from Wayfair are actually consoles. Had we needed more storage, I would have opted for chests with a full bank of drawers.
