Sugarplum Style Vol. 6

Holla for Friday! Is it me, or is this last stretch of 2014 really picking up steam?? I love this time of year, but I wish I could freeze time, or at least slow it down a bit. I'm determined to find a way to really soak in the holidays...I think the key to that is for me to simplify. Not really a term I'm familiar with, but I'm going to try!

I'm off to a pretty good start with simplifying my wardrobe, since every outfit appears to be a combination of jeans + scarf + boots, with a vest thrown in for good measure. Oh yeah, I wrote a post about just that formula! And a head's up, if you have an objection to puffer vests, you likely won't enjoy this installment of Sugarplum Style.

Does a zebra scarf and a leopard belt count as mixing animal prints? I think mixing cognac with black is what made this outfit interesting.



You can't beat the quality and style of this puffer vest for the price, and as you'll see, the red pairs well with a lot.



You can see this outfit come to life in this post.



This shirt makes accessorizing easy, and I love mixing the fanciness of it with a rustic vest.

Some of you have asked what kind of socks to wear with short booties...I wear ankle socks so you can't see them poking out of the boot. Unless of course you're looking down at me like this. In which case...dude, you're in my dance space! #nobodyputsbabyinacorner



I love the look and idea of leggings, but prefer the structure and back pockets of jeggings. That way I don't have to worry about having tops long enough to cover all the lady bits. I went up a size on this pair and they are super comfy.

I'm too mad for plaid to save it for the weekend, so this is how I dress it up for work. 



Hey there, red puffer. Again.



And you probably remember the kitten-cardi outfit from this post. I won't tell you how many times I've worn it...if it's not documented, there's no proof!





What's been your go-to formula this Fall? Are you a fan of the puffer vest? Clearly I am...along with plaid. How about a {5 Ways} post on wearing plaid...yay or nay?

Fall's Tables

So who has Look-for-Less Hunter Wellies on the way?! #me! I'm thrilled you guys loved the idea, and thanks for the tip about finding real Hunter boots at Costco! Fingers crossed for a wet Winter!

This year we're spending Thanksgiving with some of my family in California (I shared about that forgiveness and blossoming relationship here), so we had Mr. SP's parents over last weekend to celebrate early. My mother-in-law and I have a great arrangement...she does all the cooking, and I set the table. (Me and bird carcases are not a good mix.) I was feeling industrious, so I even threw in dessert.

I went with a colorful, yet glam vibe this year, using items I picked up from my Nate Berkus challenge. #namedropper Aren't these lion place card holders so fun? Nate said they'll be his go-to host gift this year. #firstnamebasisnow #toobadhedoesntknow

I found these mini-cake pedestals at Home Goods, and they had me at mini. And gold. They are perfect for, what else...mini pumpkin bundt cakes. The kids loved seeing dessert as part of the table when they sat down.

I forgot to tell them cake wasn't the first course. Oh well, who can blame them?!

In case you're working on your table for next week, here are a few of our past set-ups that may inspire you.





I went for simple this year, and store-bought the mini-bundts, but these are two of my favorite pumpkin recipes.





And finally, if you're looking for a simple craft to do with the kids, this is a fun one that lets them help with creating the table.


And this was a good tip I picked up to help kids remember how to set the table. Are you gearing up for family and the holiday? Are you a table-setter, or the cook?
