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!

{New House} Watergate

Oh man, I was so excited for this week's Kitchen Renovation update! I had hoped to share the new drawer fronts in place, with the shiny new hardware. Not to mention, a gorgeous new faucet, a mounted dishwasher, and perfectly aligned pendant lights. But alas, we had another hiccup that dashed those dreams.

Well actually, last week's problem was a hiccup...this new speed bump was full blown projectile vomiting. Keep in mind we've only been in the house two weeks and are just now digging out of boxes. Here's a peek from the Kitchen, looking towards the front door.

Things are starting to pull together, right?! Gorgeous new floors, updated wall color, photobombing pup...it looks like real people actually live here. But look a bit closer, and you'll see the bubble that popped up in the floor last week.

Hi Sugarplum | Reno Update: Watergate

Let me back up a bit in this story...lay some very important and relevant groundwork. The main family room in this house has a great corner cabinet, with pull-out shelf for the TV, and doors that hide it, as well as all the components. 'Perfect!' I declared. 'No way!' insisted the boys (Mr. SP and the teen).
