{Top Ten} February

Happy sleepy Monday! If you follow me on InstaGram, then you saw Texas got some real, legit Winter weather this past week! We spent the weekend inside with the heat cranked up high, and late nights glued to the new season of House of Cards. Who's dragging with me today from binge-watching?! We're only a few episodes in, so no spoilers please!

February went by in a flash...starting with our move to the new house, and ending with a Watergate scandal. Here are the Top Ten posts from last month.

Hi Sugarplum | Top Ten February

Lots of posts and projects last month, but most of the excitement centered around our Kitchen Renovation. The cabinets were painted and hardware installed, only to have to take it back off to fix a grain issue with the new drawer fronts. The gorgeous floors were laid just days before we moved in...and two weeks later we had to rip them, and the wall, up because of a water leak

Winter doesn't appear to be leaving any time soon, so I created {3 Ways} Chic Winter Neutrals.

I was commissioned by Parade's American Profile to produce six fun Valentine crafts...I shared those projects and Babygirl's cover model debut.

With hearts full of memories, we said good-bye to our old house. Bittersweet, indeed.

Dressing up is always fun, especially when it's for a wedding.

The Big Box Bathroom was revealed, with all the details and sources. That was a hard room to leave behind...fortunately I was able to bring some wallpaper remnants with me!

Cold nights require comfort food...git in mah belly Tortellini & Sausage with Cream Sauce.

Amongst all the move/renovation chaos, Mr. SP and I managed to sneak in a Valentine's Date Night

We completed the last project in our old Living Room just before moving out. Isn't that how it always seems to work? We shared the full reveal and sources here.

Finally, Volume 10 of Sugarplum Style revealed my obsession with denim and layers from the last month.


There's no question it was a busy month, and I've been anxious to get everything unpacked and settled in the new space. But I realized that's stressing me out, and not to mention, sucking all the joy out of creating this new home for my family...so I'm trying to slow down and just enjoy the long, painstakingly slow process. ;)

In the meantime, I'm excited to show you the remaining room reveals from our other house (starting with the Master Bedroom this week)...then I promise it's all about the new one!


If you're new around here, or playing catch-up, here are some good places to start:

Sugarplum Style, Vol. 10

I'm not a fan of the expression 'TGIF,' because really, isn't it just a given that we're all relieved to see the work-week end?! I mean, whoever says, 'Ugh, it's Friday'?? But this has been one of those weeks where the cliche truly fits, so I'll break my rule and say, 'Thank goodness it's Friday!'

And with it comes another round of Sugarplum Style. I can't believe this series is almost a year old already...I'm thrilled you like it (or at least I think you do), and love sharing ideas of how I mix it up in my closet. Judging from these outfits, February was the month of the jean! Between the move and crazy weather, I didn't realize just how often I reached for my favorite denim...for both work and weekends. 

I jazzed up black skinnies and gingham with pearls and pumps. And I'd like to set the record straight...I'm too obsessed with Mexican food for that kind of thigh gap! I promise you it's the angle of the camera!

Cozy in cable knit and camo.

When in doubt, pair it with black and white stripes.

I threw a little sass in our date night with some leopard heels and my favorite new bag.

Blouse | Flap Pocket Jeans | Leopard Pumps (similar)


There's no rule that says you must save the bling for dressy occasions...it's just as fun paired with casual outfits. 

Plaid Shirt (similar) | Herringbone Vest (this one isn't similar, but it sure is fun!)
Black Skinnies | Crystal Necklace (similar) | Booties


Oh hey, looks like I changed out of jeans at least once.

This was the first time I took my new bag out for a spin, and people literally stopped me on the street to ask about it. It's going to be a fun addition to outfits this Spring and Summer!

I think more clothes should have dog faces on them, don't you?!

Layers: the more the merrier. In this case, four times the merry.

Remember the shoot we did for BH&G at our old house? This was the outfit they chose for me to wear in the family shot...bright, and "not too season-specific" (since they don't know when the story will run).

Leopard Flats (similar but cuter) | Watch


And finally, I made my dark wash jeans more work-appropriate by adding a tailored jacket and crisp stripes. I also layered a white tank under to make the top appear longer. #nomuffintoppolicy

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. Are you just about over Winter's layers and fashion, or still can't get enough? What items are you reaching for day after day? If you're in jean-mode like me, here are a few affordable styles to consider.




And with Spring around the corner, now is a great time to scoop up great deals on Winter stuff for next year....Nordstrom just added a bunch of new sale items like this darling scarf for only $10, this cashmere sweater for under $40, and these suede boots 40% off. 

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!
