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!

 

 

 

Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well! I wanted to focus this week’s Fab Five on the HUGE Shopbop sale that’s happening right now! All of my picks are under $100, including the Fab Five this week. This is a fantastic time to pick up some designer duds on the DL. Down low PRICE, that is. Shopbop only has these sales a few times a year, and this one only lasts for three days. You can use the code *ENJOY17* to receive 20% off purchases under $500 and 25% off all purchases over $500! This offer ends April 14 at midnight AND the best part is that it includes sale items! WHAT WHAT…so get your shop on! Behold five of my favorites…gonna be honest, it was hard to narrow it down to just five. (And also…I may or may not be hoarding items in my online shopping cart.) Also, below my Fab Five picks,, you’ll find my complete Shopbop Sale SHOP! Say THAT five times fast!

First, HOW CUTE is this adorable Lioness Del Rio romper ?!? I love the off-the-shoulder neckline and the fun bell sleeves. This is definitely an effortless piece that you can wear with sandals OR dressed up with heels. It is an absolute steal for only $60 with the discount!

Next, I love this darling Moon River cold-shoulder dress. The lace details take this little white dress to the next level, and I love the cold shoulder and drop waist design. It is lined, which to me is a total WIN. The last thing you want is for everyone to see your goodies! Keepin it real! This dress is only $64 with the discount!

I’m obsessed with these Geo Metal Statement Earrings from Madewell. They are the perfect solid gold statement earring, and at 2.5″ long, they’re the perfect size, too. They’re also only $25.60 with the discount!

Next up, is the most AHHH-DORABLE sandal of all time. Really, though. The Dolce Vita Pedra Sandals have the absolute cutest details with the zig-zag design mixed with cheetah print. Add the lace-up detail around your ankle, and there you have it ladies and gentleman. The cutest sandal of all time. These are the priciest item on the list. They are right at $100 with the discount, BUT so worth it. Your feet deserve a little party every now and then! Treat yo’ feet!

Last but not least, are the Blank Denim Coated Skinny Jeans. The rosy color is right on trend with the blush crush, and the distressed knees only add to the style factor. I love that they cut right above the ankle because these would be perfect to show off a really cute sandal or heel. It’s also a stretch fabric, so I’m sure they’re super comfortable. They come in right at $70 with the discount and sizes are selling quickly!

That’s a wrap for the Fab Five this week, but below is my complete Shopbop Sale Shop. I hope you find some goodies! I certainly have found TOO many! Here’s a tip: If you find something you like, go ahead and put it in your shopping cart. Shopbop will reserve it for 30 minutes while you shop and decide. This sale is BIG and sizes/styles are selling out like crazy! Good luck and may the shopping odds be ever in your favor! Stay styled, sugarplum!

Hey y’all! I hope you’re having a great week and HAPPY APRIL!!! This week for my Fab Five, I’m featuring an outfit that would be a versatile day to night look! Click the highlighted links or the pictures below each caption to shop!

Let’s start with the Crop Culotte Jumpsuit from Hollister. The sweetheart neckline and fitted bodice create a sleek sillouette against the wide leg cropped culottes. The straps are also adjustable, and the smocked stretchy backing makes an easy and comfortable piece. It’s a perfect option for the office with a cardigan or blazer and pumps, and then for night, amp up your accessories and ditch the layers! BOOM- happy hour ready! It’s right under $50, and also comes in a really cute denim light blue and white stripe!

Next, let’s talk about the Garbriela Fringe Drops from Baublebar. If you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for statement earrings. I have acquired quite a selection over time, and I just ordered these in yellow. I styled this look with the turquoise ones, and absolutely LOVE the fun layers of fringe. They are also available in coral, hot pink, and red. They’re $38 and add a whimsy, bold pop of color to an ensemble.

Up next is this fabulous floral stud crossbody bag from Topshop. Embroidery has been an ongoing trend since last summer, and it is here to stay. This bag is so pretty with the turquoise, red, and blush flower pattern, and yet has a bit of an edge with the studded detail. It also comes in this beautiful white floral pattern that absolutely screams spring! (I linked both below!) They’re both $48 each.

The Baublebar Stud Cuff is next up and I love the girly minimalist simplicity of this cuff. It’s a strong piece, and yet the pearls soften the look. This is a statement piece that you could throw on with just about anything and would even be cute with a casual tee, jean cutoffs, and espadrilles. It retails for $32.

Lastly, are the Isabel Wraparound Sandals from Steve Madden. These are the ultimate comfy heels for summer. The block heel is supportive, and the lace-ups create visual detail at your feet. A lace-up shoe is perfect for this look because the beautiful wrap-around straps can be fully showcased with the crop culotte hem. I also linked a taller heel AND an espadrille version (MY FAVE) all under $50!

Hope you enjoyed this edition of Fab Five under $50, and I’ll be back later this week with details on a few of my favorite hair and skin products. Also, I just received my first FabFitFun box, and will give my FULL REVIEW on that *hopefully* next week! Have a great week!
