Sugarplum Style, Vol. 24

Cheers to Friday! And not just any Friday, but for us it's the start of Spring Break! WooHoo! We're packing all our layers and coats, and headed north. After the puny Winter we had here in Texas, we're actually looking forward to a week of snow and cold weather. If you're interested to see where we land and what we're up to, you can follow along on Instagram and Facebook, but make sure to come back here next week...I've got lots of great posts lined up!

Today it's time for another Sugarplum Style...snapshots of my everyday outfits, created by mixing-and-matching items in my closet. And thanks to our sporadic weather, it's a mixed bag of layers.

If I had to choose one item in my closet that makes the biggest impact on my everyday outfits, I'd say it's a striped tee. Peeking out from under sleeves and hems, or layered under a jacket, it gives such a fun extra punch of pattern for every season. I have several favorites, including this one and this one.

Cozy Layers of Plaid & Stripes // Am I the only one who was excited for the return of cold weather this week?!? I'm just not ready to pack up my sweaters & scarves! πŸ’™πŸ’š #sugarplumstyle //

Vests are great for transitioning to new seasons, when it's still a little chilly, but not cold enough for a full coat.

Layered up for these crazy cold mornings & warm afternoons. #texaswinter #sugarplumstyle //

Remember this combo from our recent {Date Night Style}? Pink + Red forever!

I think my cost-per-wear on this tunic is now down to pennies. #maggiephotobomb

No team colors for me today, but bring on the chips & dips! 🏈🍻 Sidenote: I lost my old cognac crossbody bag & since I carried it so often, I went ahead & ordered another one.😭 The upside is I love this one even more! 😍#silver

Packing used to be my nemesis, but now I actually enjoy it! My tip? Lay everything out you think you want to take, and create several outfits using as few pieces as possible. This helps eliminate items that only work for one outfit (especially shoes!). And then snap a pic of each....that makes it easier to get dressed while on your trip. See more of my packing tips here.

Cold & Rainy...I'm ready for ya! ☔️❄️πŸ’— #sugarplumstyle //

You say addiction, I say collection. #gimmeallthegingham

It doesn't get much easier than a pullover sweater and scarf, but the leopard makes it anything but basic.

Kept my Monday pink-streak alive today! πŸ’— #sugarplumstyle //

This outfit is the epitome of 'Transitioning to Spring' for me. You can see my other transition outfits and tips here, and stay tuned for a new post with more ideas soon!

Back to 70-degrees & fewer layers today. ☀️😍 #winterintexas #sugarplumstyle #maggiesugarplum //

This was another outfit creation while packing...I wanted to make sure I had enough options to justify bringing the extra pair of boots. But they're rainboots with dogs...of course I was going to justify bringing them!

Late night packing session. Destination: C.O.L.D.❄️✈️ (Why oh why do I always wait until the last second??) #sugarplumstyle //

And thank goodness I don't see me complaining about the rain in Central Park! (My New York {Trip Report} coming up soon!)

Let it rain! ☔️πŸ’• #sugarplumtravels #sugarplumstyle // #liketkit

I've also started creating fun outfits on Sunday nights...having something cute to wear has helped take the sting out of Mondays.

Classic Neutrals // Love the light weight & softness of this sweater...and it's hard to beat cashmere for less than $50! #sugarplumstyle //

I don't know what's gotten in to me, but I've had some Neutral Nellie in me this season! And I like it!

Neutral Layers // Camel & Gray was one of my fave combos this season.πŸͺπŸŒšπŸ˜‹ Unrelated Sidenote: I get asked about my bed a lot, so thought you might want to know that a) I love it & am very happy with the quality, & b)

My travel style is always about comfort first, then style. These jeans feel and move like leggings, and the dark rinse makes them a little dressier. They're also higher on the waist, so there's no crack incidents when bending over for your bag! (Sidenote: Word on the street is they're being discontinued, so grab them now if you're interested!) (Sidenote to my Sidenote: Mom, you'd really like them, and they're true-to-size!!)

And away we gooooooooo!✈️ I'd say 'follow along & see where we're going on my snapchat' but I'm not on snapchat. πŸ˜‹ #aintnobodygottimeforthat  #sugarplumtravels #sugarplumstyle //

Nothing jazzes a button-up more than a pearl cluster!

Today's outfit inspired by Spring-like temps & Valentine school parties. Cheers to Friday & raiding the kids candy haul! πŸŽ‰πŸ­πŸ¬πŸ’— #sugarplumstyle //

Date Night scheming with my favorite new heels! See them in action here.

Date Night Scheming πŸ’‹ A movie is on the agenda...what's good??? We've seen Revenant, Brooklyn & Kung Fu Panda. πŸ»πŸ—½πŸΌπŸ’― #sugarplumstyle // #mysolesociety @solesociety

A Texan in New York City....leave no skin uncovered! (I took the gloves off to snap a pic, and pulled the scarf away from my face so the store didn't think I was robbing them!)

It's never too soon to start thinking about swimsuits...especially when they're this cute, and buy one get one half off!!! And my favorite straw fedora is back...and only $16! Which is great since I replace mine every year.

Who's ready for summer?! 😎🌴⛱ This cute suit & tons of others are all BOGO half-off! And my fave straw fedora is back & only $16! Details & my top picks found here πŸ‘‰ // #sugarplumstyle

I hope these posts inspire you to create 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. Except this tunic and these jeans, you need those. #trustme #enabler

  1. Soooooooooooooooo many cute outfits today!!!!! Love that pink sweater on you, and really love the tip about the striped tee peaking out under sleeves! Love it!

  2. Happy start of Spring Break! Those dog rain boots are just perfect, and I love all the gingham. Have a great trip!


  3. I just saw gingham shirts in different colors at JC Penneys ! Going to get every color. Love your style! Come to Minnesota you could wear all your sweaters at once!

  4. Looking forward to your NYC trip post. I love Gotham more than a girl should!

  5. I love gingham shirts but tend to struggle with statement necklaces not showing enough (and therefore I feel like Cowgirl Sally). Do you have a trick? Have you ever used a necklace extender so you can wear them outside the collar?

  6. Yesterday a recent post inspired me into my hot pink sweater, skinny dark wash jeans, and indigo print scarf. And hot pink coat. Pumped some color into my wardrobe...

  7. Enough already! When are you coming down to Houston to take me shopping and revamp my entire closet?? Until then, I'll be waiting here in my momiform, drooling over all of your outfits.

  8. Ok. i gotta ask. What kind of bra do you where with the cute hot pink top (in the date night outfit picture)?


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
