Happy January! I hope your new year is going amazingly! Okay, so I know, I know. It has been MORE than a hot minute since my last post. I took a GIANT little hiatus from blog world during the holidays, but I am BACK! I have several upcoming posts planned for the blog…beauty reviews, fashion faves, home decor, recipes and fitness stuff, this and that, AND an intro to a new super cute online boutique that my bestie owns! I can’t wait to give you the details!
I wanted to write a quick post about some of my current favorites. They’re all under $100, SO many are on sale, and most of these are great transition pieces into Spring! Yep, already talking Spring! South Carolina gave us a tease last weekend with temps in the 70s so it really got me thinking about transition necessities and season staple pieces. You can shop any of these pieces below by clicking the highlighted word for the product in my description OR clicking the pictures below that!
Both of the striped sweaters on the left corner are from H&M and under $20! They’re a lightweight knit and bold stripes are so WOKE right now (hahahaha alert alert-old lady using the teen lingo…did I even use it correctly? Who knows…anyway)… the black and white striped sweater comes in 14 colors and I’d definitely consider it a great winter to spring transition piece. The pink and orange striped one is another one of the color options. Such a deal!
The BP color splice sweater in the right corner is another adorable addition to your winter wardrobe and would be perfect on those lingering cold days coming up in February. I love the unique design of the colors and stripes! Under $60
Now, let’s move on to the Sole Society Floral Embroidered Velvet Kimono. This is suchhhh a pretty piece (under $60 also) and I would style it with a solid white tee underneath, jeans (distressed ones if you’re feeling edgy), and flats or booties. Here’s how I’d style it with a few pieces from this collage collection:
I just recently purchased the short sleeve dress (Hailey Crepe Dress) that’s featured and it has been hard to resist not getting it in every color offered. It will be THE perfect spring and summer dress to wear with sandals for a casual look or heels/wedges to dress it up for night. It’s a great piece to go ahead and get because you can layer it with a cardigan now and wear it with booties. It’s under $50.
The cowl neck sweater dress is so super cute and slouchy…it’s basically one of those throw-on-and-go type dresses that make getting ready effortless. Also under $50!
When was the last time you shopped at Abercrombie? For me it was probably a solid 15 years ago. UNTIL a month ago. A fellow blogger was raving about Abercrombie’s denim, so I took a chance and ordered just to see if they were worth the hype…since then, I’ve ordered two more. They are stretchy, comfy, hide my momma pudge (you know what I’m saying), and are the best jean I’ve ever had. Hands down. The High Rise Super Skinnies are my new best friend…I have them in black distressed, grey wash, and dark. Right now, they’re buy one get one 50% off, so it’s a good time to stock up!
Loving this BP faux leather circle clutch …not really sure it could get any cuter with that wooden circle handle. Plus, at only $25, it is a no brainer for a spring closet staple. Speaking of staples…the Sole Society Roman Slouchy Tote comes in black and brown and is such a cute shape to throw anything and everything you need on a daily basis. It also has a zippered pouch on the inside to secure all that money you’re rolling with.
Now, my person favorite… the jewels! Kendra Scott’s spring line is BOMB and these gorgeous Emmet Drop Earrings are to DIE FOR! They are a little pricier BUT some colors are under $100. My fringe obsession continues from last season with Baublebar’s Martina deco fringe earrings! They come in cobalt blue and hot pink…I can’t even with these y’all. Under $40 and a must-have fo sho. Also, this gorgeous Gorjana crescent necklace is a perfect layering piece for everyday. It’s unique and dainty and giving me all the heart eyes. Under $80!
Last but NOT least, shoes. I have been on the hunt for some neutral flats that weren’t boring AF and I finallyyyy found them with the Sienna Flat from BP at Nordstrom. I absolutely love the all over studded detail and they come in grey, blue, and black. Under $50! I am also obsessed with the Sole Society double zipper bootie. It’s a classic, yet edgy silhouette and the zipper detail and low ankle design are perfect for jeans and dresses. They come in this blue (my fave) and two other colors!
SHOP any and all of these pieces below!
Have a great hump day and I’ll be back later this week with some home faves for your bedroom! Stay styled, sugarplum!
Hey y’all! Happy weekend! I can’t believe Tuesday is Halloween and Wednesday is NOVEMBER! Ahhh where did October go? Cooler temperatures finally made their way to South Carolina last week and I am so thankful! This welcomed temperature drop totally got me in the mood for a fall fashion collage. I actually posted this picture to Instagram a few weeks ago, but I wanted to post it here too because I am loving these staples and fall color palette! Everything has a unique twist to it and I love the details. I linked everything below the picture!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Halloween!

I hope you have an awesome week! I’m working on a blog post for later this week that includes two items that are total game changers for me! Can’t wait to share them with you! Also, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still in full swing! Items are getting restocked daily, so make sure to check out my *NSALE* Menu up at the main menu with all my top favorites! Stay styled, sugarplum!
Hey y’all! Today, I’m really excited to introduce you to a company that I know you’ll fall in love with like I did. There’s nothing better than a company with a mission, so without further adieu, meet Jimani Collections. Jimani Collections strives to achieve a sustainable solution for poverty in Kenya through employment and female empowerment. Jimani Collections has partnered with women in these impoverished areas who needed an outlet for their talents, but lacked a safe workplace and the business tools to make that happen. They offer ongoing education and training, so that these talented artisans can showcase their work through beautifully well-made, handcrafted pieces. Not only are they skilled in making jewelry, but in accessories and small home decor goods as well. Jimani Collections gives them the opportunity they wouldn’t have otherwise. I love the attention to detail in everything… it shows the passion and love they share for this company and its purpose. You can read their entire backstory here.
I’m wearing the beautiful Asha Zahara Beaded Seed Bracelet. I love the multiple beaded strands and the gold/grey colors together. It’s a delicate piece that can be worn alone or stacked with others. Because of the neutral colors, this is a bracelet that transition easily and can be worn from season to season. All of the components for this bracelet were sourced from the markets in Nairobi. I also fell in love with their home decor section (especially the basekets!) Below, I listed some of my favorites from both collections.
Make sure to check out their website and browse these special pieces first hand! It’s so very inspiring! Check it out here.
I’m slowly receiving a few things that I purchased from the Nordstrom Sale, so I’ll share those after I receive everything! I hope you have a great rest of the week and stay styled, sugarplum!
This is it y’all! The BIGGEST sale of the year is here! *Strike up the band! Sound the alarm! Alert the media! Okay you get it… SO, if you aren’t familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Nsale for short), let me give you a quick rundown. During the Nsale, Nordstrom releases all of their brand new, most popoular fall merchandise and offers everything at reduced sale pricing. When the event ends, all the remaining items will be sold at full price! How awesome is it that you can shop all of Fall’s hottest looks, trends, and designers at a huge discount!?!? Nordstrom’s got your back yo! Also, it’s free shipping and free returns…so if something doesn’t work, just stick it in the box it came in and send it on it’s way back! FO FREE!
Right now, they are offering early access for Nordstrom cardholders. There are two types of Nordstrom cards, a debit card and a credit card option. I have the debit option and you still receive the Nordstrom Notes (special $20 rewards that you can earn from purchasing with your card) and purchases are conveniently debited directly from your bank account. Early access starts TODAY (July 13) and runs through July 20. The sale is officially open to the public starting on July 21st and runs through August 6th. I highly recommend going ahead and applying for a card to gain access to the sale now, because items and sizes sell out SUPER fast! Below, you’ll find my wish list along with my faves (most under $100) in each fashion and beauty category! ALSO-most everything you see is available in multiple colors/prints so if you like the style… click it and check it out because odds are, it’s available in other colors! Happy shopping!
