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!

That’s a wrap, y’all! I hope you enjoyed my Anniversary Sale Roundup and don’t forget to snag your favorite items as soon as possible! This is a really popular sale and things will sell out very quickly! Have a rockin’ rest of the week and I’ll be back on Sunday with a very special post about a company that I can’t wait to share with y’all! Stay styled, sugarplum!

Hey y’all! I hope you had an awesome July 4th holiday! We were at the beach for 5 days and it was amazing! Family time, sun, sand, fireworks, good drinks and food, and unplugging from technology was just what the doctor ordered! It’s amazing what a little beach time can do for you! I’m back feeling so refreshed! So, today I wanted to write a quick post for you about a few accessories that are giving me all the heart eyes. If you follow me on social media, you know I’m 100% accessory obsessed. I’m a true blue believer in frosting yourself…movie reference anyone? Baublebar is always my go-to for fun, affordable jewelry and a while back, they introduced their collaboration with Target called SUGARFIX. I wrote a blog post introducing the line back when I heard the news.. you know, when the heavens parted and the angels sang!  Target for the win (always!) Well, they recently introduced a ton of new googly-eye inducing baubles to the line, so I wanted to showcase a few of the beautiful pieces they were kind enough to send me!

I couldn’t help but think to pair these two beauties with hot pink. In my opinion, you always make more of a statement with the spotlight on just one showstopper bauble and both the Mixed Media Squash Blossom earrings and the Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace will definitely achieve that look.   The main thing I love the most is that they look WAAAAAY more expensive than $15 and $25. Can you even believe that? They aren’t cheap feeling either…both are very well made and have substantial weight that definitely makes them feel more luxe. I love the mix of marble, gold/silver, turquoise, and diamonds in both pieces…it adds so much dimension and contrast. I linked similar styles below the pictures so you can take a look at a few more of their pieces!

Also big news on the accessory front, Gigi New York is having a HUGE summer sale right now! The hot pink clutch in my first picture is from Gigi and I purchased it at the end of last summer during the sale then! They just added a ton of colors and styles, so if you’re in the market for a new bag- you MUST check it out! It’s definitely one of my favorite clutches. The quality is on point and although they are a bit more expensive than what I’d normally spend on a bag, it’s well worth the investment (especially when they’re marked down to 50% off!) You can shop my hot pink clutch here and the entire summer sale here.

I hope you find lots of goodies by checking out the Gigi sale and settle your sweet tooth craving with Sugarfix! Don’t forget the absolute BIGGEST sale of the year starts next week (for cardholders) with the *drumroll please* NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE! I’ll definitely be writing a blog post about it because it’s the only time that you can score all of Fall’s hot, new merchandise at ridiculously discounted prices! After the sale ends on August 7, the prices go back to regular price for the rest of the season.  So, it’s basically an after-season sale before the season starts! Have a great weekend and stay styled, sugarplum!

Hey y’all! Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This post includes a few things I’m loving lately and obsessing over right now. Everything you’ll see is under $50 and almost all are available with free shipping! I also included a few pictures below my wish list of an adorable top and earrings I wore with my bestie for a girl’s date yesterday! If you follow me on Instagram, you already got a sneak peek! Behold my latest wish list:

So clothing first…I love the boho vibe from the gorgeous indigo tie dye maxi dress from One Nation. The cut is universally flattering and the pattern is absolutely gorgeous!  It’s such an easy breezy dress to throw on at the beach, to run errands, or just grab lunch with your girlfriends! Same with the baby blue off-the-shoulder shift dress …the ties on the sleeve are an adorable detail and this dress also comes in blush and ivory. I’m all about that simple summer dress life. I can’t forget about my love for rompers though! The featured Everly striped romper from Nordstrom also comes in the cutest mustard yellow print. I love the deep V neckline and tie detail on the hip. It’s a versatile piece that can easily take you from day to night. Wear with sandals during the day and to amp it up, add statement jewelry and espadrille wedges and heels for night. Lastly, this BP. eyelet off-the-shoulder top is definitely a must-have. I own this one and have received so many compliments when I wear it! Shop them by clicking the highlighted links or below.

Next, let’s talk bags. It’s no groundbreaking news that straw bags in the summer are a hot trend, but I absolutely L O V E this one because of the slouchy, hobo shape and the cute tassel/pom combo detail. Shop it here: BP. slouchy straw tote  I also love this rainbow studded clutch! It’s a new spin on the rainbow detail trend of summer. I’ve mostly seen this trend in a pom-lined clutch, but the studs give it an edgier feel! Shop it here: BP. studded clutch ! I included these and several other styles to shop below!

Slides are raging this season and I love the crisscross design of these. The leopard print is a staple in my wardrobe and I love adding that pop of pattern with my accessories. I also love the metallic gold ones, which can be worn practically all day, every day, with everything! Shop both below along with a few other available colors and styles:

Lastly, bring on the baubles. The Gabriela ombre drops from Baublebar are too cute for words and are also available in blue. It’s hard to choose a favorite…reminds me of Sleeping Beauty when the fairies are fighting over which color to make Aurora’s dress… *Make it pink! Make it blue!* I’m also loving the design and beautifully rich colors in the Nazaria drops. The different colors of turquoise, green, and blue are stunning! Plus, the stone shapes are so unique. The Coral Reef Collar is a perfect summer statement necklace. In addition to the blush color, it’s also available in coral and turquoise. Shop these and a few other jewelry favorites below:

Yesterday, a bestie of mine came in town to visit and I wore this look below to our lunch date! The Suki top from Francesca’s combined several of my favorite things and trends: pink tassels, one-shoulder tops, ruffles, and embroidery. Best part is that t’s only $38! I couldn’t believe it. I paired it with the Clementine pink tassel earrings (only $18) because it incorporated the pink tones from the gorgeous embroidery on the ruffle. To finish off the look, I wore simple white skinny jeans from Old Navy (under $50) and gold double strap sandals. OH I can’t forget my aviator sunnies! They’re only $12 and come in seven colors! Shop my look below the pics!

I hope you enjoyed a few of the things I’m currently crushing and I’ll see you later this week with some home goodies and office reveal I promised from last week…forgive me pleeeeeease!

Hey y’all! Hope you had a great week and I’m pumped because it’s FINALLY Friday!!! Do you have any holiday weekend plans? We are heading to our family’s condos at North Myrtle Beach and I can’t wait for some beach time!!!🙌 But first, shopping. No better way to kick off the weekend than a Nordstrom sale! There are some killer sales going on right now for Memorial Day (my favorite retailers and sales are listed at the very end of the post) BUT my ultimate number one favorite of all time retailer, Nordstrom, is having their *half-yearly sale* until June 4 and SO many styles are marked at amazing discounts up to 50% off!!! Best part about ordering from Nordstrom is that they make the return process so easy…they include a return label and shipping is always free! I’ve picked some of my favorites from the sale under $50 and divided them into categories for ya! I also included a link below each category for you to shop all the products directly from the Nordstrom site if you’d rather experience the awesomeness of this sale first hand! Happy shopping!

Hey y’all! I hope you have had a fantastic week so far! I thought I would do a little catch up sesh on my life lately, since it has been about 3 weeks since I’ve blogged. UGH I SUCK! Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram because I post on there almost everyday! My username on there is @styledsugarplum!  We have been super busy over here and this week especially, since I’ve been on a break from school. I’ve had some time to spend quality time with friends, family, and tie up some house projects. My hubby and I also had a MUCH needed date night. I feel like we take the time to go out to eat as a family quite often because we usually have a nice lunch out every Sunday after church, but we deff need to make more of an effort for dates on the reg. Here’s our ghetto car selfie from date night last Saturday because that was really the best we could do at the time …haha! We kinda suck at taking pictures together because I’m usually the one always behind the lens…regardless, isn’t he just the cutest?

We are coming up on our FIVE year wedding anniversary next month and I am so excited. We’re trying to figure out what to do!?! At first we were thinking NYC, then we thought maybe Universal Studios in Florida (the Harry Potter nerd in me NEEDS to visit The Wizarding World of HP), then we even thought “YOLO, lets go it Italy”… we just can’t make up our minds!?! Any fun destinations you’ve traveled that would be good for couples sans kids?

This week I’ve also been stepping up my fitness game. Since we moved, I have continued to workout, but not as regularly as I’d like. My knees are shotty, but this week I FINALLY feel back on track and I’ve been interval running and pumping out workout videos like it’s my job. I absolutely love walking/jogging outdoors. There is just something so magical about the fresh air and sun. It’s good for the soul! I also love working out to DVDs for sculpting and ab work along with cardio from running outside. Anyone use workout DVDs? What are some of your faves? I enjoy PiYo, the set from the 21 Day Fix, and Turbo Jam (that’s old school but I love it.) The Turbo Sculpt and Ab Jam from that set are my absolute favorites! If you have any suggestions on videos you enjoy, please send them my way! We have a smart TV, so if there are any available on YouTube or wherever- let me know! I’d love to hear your recommendations!

Now that I’ve caught you up on some life happenings, today I want to share a look with you that I am SO excited to rock in a few weeks when I go visit a few of my besties in Charleston in two weeks. I can’t wait to get back to that salt air and see two of my favorite friends in the world. I will be documenting that weekend and I’ll share with you because we are heading to a few new places that I have never been! Back to the look, it’ll be perfect for a day to night transition because all you need to do is switch your shoes to wedges or a block heel sandal! Such an effortless transition!

 

So first things first, I have been on the hunt FOREVER for the perfect raw hem white denim shorts. You’d think it would be easy….pshhh white shorts in the summer. BUT NOPE. After searching for about a month, I have finally zeroed in on some that meet all the criteria: stretchy denim, not too long/ not too short, and budget friendly. They’re the STS BLUE Raw Hem Denim shorts from Nordstrom. All hail Nordstrom. I wanted to share them with you because they also come in a few other shades of denim…so if you’re also on the hunt for a great pair of denim shorts of any color, I highly recommend this brand. I’m picky about my shorts because 1) I’m 32 and don’t need my ass hanging out, 2) they gotta be stretchy and move with me aka no muffin top, and 3) must be an affordable price point (these are $39 and it’s free shipping.) They also run true to size. Check them out below!

Okay, next is this AH-DORABLE floral ruffle one shoulder top. It’s called the Annka One Shoulder Ruffle Tank from Free People and it comes in an ivory and black also. The one I bought is the peach and I just love the bright colors on the floral ruffle. I saw this on a fashion blogger I follow on Insta and knew I had to have it. You ever just fall in love with a piece and know it’s meant to be?? (Oh myyyy, spoken like a true shopaholic.) For size reference, I purchased the small (so pretty TTS.) Shop below!

Now we have my next favorite item in this flatlay…the Mia Woven Raffia Clutch from Mar Y Sol . This one also comes in a few colors: aqua, natural, navy and pink (the one I have.) It’s a small clutch, so don’t expect to fit much more than your cards, phone and lipstick. It is SUPER cute though, under $50, and I really like the mini-bag size, which is totally on-trend. To give you an idea, it’s about the size of a standard greeting card. Shop below!

I’ve bundled the last few items together for my accessories. My sunnies are from Velvet Eyewear and they’re the Khloe style. I’m obsessed with the round lens trend, so I knew these would be a perfect neutral accessory to rock all summer. Check out their website for more goodies. My earrings are from Target and I couldn’t find the exact pair to link for you, but I’ve linked a few other mint pieces below. I chose the mint color for my earrings because I wanted to pull some of the green from the floral ruffle in my top, but also keep it light enough that they would show up in my sea of long hair. (Which is long overdue for a trim, but I’m gonna call it my “summer mermaid hair” although we know it best as lazy girl hair.) Anyway, my sandals are the perfect splash of metallic and I love the simple two strap style. They’re from Old Navy and right now if you use your Old Navy card and the code THANKYOU, you can receive an extra 40% off. Oh gosh, don’t hate me but I just discovered that the metallic gold ones like mine are sold out. This style is still available in a few other colors online though. The gold may be available in stores, so if you really want them, check your local Old Navy. I’ll be on the lookout for some similar styles- so if you’re interested, email me! Shop the rest of my accessories below!

I hope you enjoyed deets on my new favorite outfit. I’ll be back this weekend with another plant-based diet update. It’s been a while, so I want to bring you up to speed and share a salad recipe that has been in constant rotation! Have a great rest of your week!
