Look for Less

I can't even express my gratitude and joy for all your amazing comments, emails, texts, and posts regarding the Redbook cover. Your genuine joy knocked me over, and I've been choked-up and teary-eyed for the last few days. I realize how lucky I am to be given these opportunities, and also how completely obnoxious they can be to hear thank you for your enthusiasm and support!

It's been awhile since I rounded-up some of my favorite Looks for Less, so I thought I'd share a few with you today. Fall will be here before we know it, so soon it'll be all about the transition pieces (see my formula for transitioning to Fall here). I trolled the internet looking for deals on great, classic pieces...I love finding lower-priced items that give the same impact as their higher-priced counterparts! Remember, to be fair, I don't list sale prices.

If you've been following my blog for more than a minute, or ever seen a Sugarplum Style post, you know I'm addicted to my utility and jean jackets. I challenge you to find an outfit that doesn't benefit from one of them! I have, and adore, the Low version shown below of both. Do we need a {5 Ways} post on each, just to demonstrate my point!?

Hi Sugarplum | Look for Less
Classic Trench:  High  \  Low
Utility Jacket:  High  \  Low
Jean Jacket:  High  \  Low

Nude wedges are both comfortable and flattering, and I have a sudden urge for the peep-toe bootie! I've had a similar pearl cluster necklace for years, and love it paired with both dressy and casual outfits...remember this one?

Hi Sugarplum | Look for Less
Nude Wedge Sandal:  High  \  Low
Nude Peep-Toe Bootie:  High  \  Low
Pearl Cluster Necklace:  High  \  Low

Two more Low version tops I own and love...the cami (available in 14 gorgeous colors and worn here), and gingham shirt.

Cami Blouse:  High  \  Low
Geo-Embroidered Tote Bag:  High (on sale for $64 right now!)  \  Low
Gingham Shirt:  High  \  Low

What's your favorite Look for Less this go-round? Have you spotted any good ones lately? Send them my way so I can share with the class.

See more posts in this series here.


  1. I love the look of the nude sandals (and on sale!) and the Toms peep toe booties. Peep toe booties are on my show wish list. Might have to give those a try! Old Navy also has a cute gingham (pull over). I don't have it but have been eyeing it.

    I went with then linen blend field jacket from Old Navy. I tried both and ultimately decided I liked the linen blend for the tad bit of stretch across the back. Fits my season of life better with little ones. (For anyone trying to decide!)

    I can only imagine the excitement seeing yourself on the cover of a magazine in the airport! So exciting!

  2. I have the gingham shirt and love the contrasting cuffs! I just need it to not be 100 degrees! :)

  3. love this series! off to check out that trench coat :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. Here's my favorite recent High/Low---the high version is one that you own and it inspired me to find a low version!
    XO, Jaclyn

  5. Love the pearl cluster necklace! This one just might have to find it's way to my newly organized jewelry box!

  6. The trench coat is a given, and if not a trench, I will always buy a coat that has double breasted buttons


Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
