Wooden Ships Knit!

This company reached out to me last month to collaborate, and after reading about what they do, it was a YES! Not only are their sweaters and clothing pieces just beautiful, they individually make each one to order! So no two sweaters in the same style are ever exactly the same. Consider yourself getting a custom piece each time! They also have almost a ZERO percent return rate – unreal! So you know what you’re getting is quality every time.

89536D0B-C1F0-4084-A9F6-8CD679AB6B29

Not only are their pieces quality and incredibly comfortable – they way they run their business is really impressive. From scarves, to knits, to sweaters… each item is made with environmentally friendly materials and methods. Their made to order, no-stock philosophy cuts back on waste and “incorrect” inventory issues. They created a new company in Bali that is fair and ethical, and go above and beyond fair and normal wages for their employees.

They also reduce their carbon footprint as much as they can with solar energy, recycling all their products, compost materials from the plant, and work towards being zero waste and paperless every day. They give back to tons of charities including wide life preservation and environmentally conscious programs.

My sweater is so beautiful and cozy! You can wear it casual or dressy, and the fit it amazing! use the link below to check out all their items, and use code SUGAR015 for 15% off your purchase!

Styled Three Ways: Stripe Dress

Another dress coming at ya styled three ways! This dress is so cute and has the best colors for fall! Purples, blues, and golds make it easy to pair with everything and style multiple ways! This dress is from Urban Outfitters and is only $59! Such a great price for the versatility it allows for styling. I’m wearing a Medium. It’s a body-con fit, so I went one size up to have a little more room!

This first look is just letting the dress shine on it’s own! I’ve paired it with my favorite OTK boots and a simple camel colored bag. These boots are great because they not only make your legs look longer, but they keep them warm too! Like a big sock! Great for when it’s colder out. They almost hit the bottom of the dress, so not a whole lot of your leg is exposed! Dress it up with some fun earrings and a necklace and you’re all set to go! These boots are amazing and I cannot stress enough that they are worth the money! They stay up, are slim, and really comfortable – and under $100 when Goodnight Macaroon runs a sale!

IMG_5175

For my second look, I actually tucked the dress into my favorite pair of dark jeans! This dress is slim enough to do this with, and just ends up looking like a top! Super fun and easy! I also played off the lighter beige stripes in the outfit and paired my beige booties and beige bag with this look! My bag is from Target and under $35. Trying not to get designer bags for the remainder of the year – we’ll see how long that lasts! However this one is a great size and can double as a cross body!

IMG_5126

My third look I wore my new pair of Lucky Brand ankle booties with a cozy oversized purple cardigan. These booties are really comfortable, and I love how pointy the toe is. They hit a little higher on your ankle, so that point makes your legs look long and lean! I got this cardigan last year, and they still have a ton of colors on Nordstrom rack! It’s only $26!!! I have an xsmall and the fit is awesome. So cozy and snugly and doesn’t shrink at all! I linked a grey one for you, but you can use that link to see all the other colors!

Affordable Coats Under $50!

It’s definitely cold here in Chicago – so time to start gearing up and making sure we have coats to keep us warm! I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favorite styles below – and most of them are under $50! Coats are a great way to accessorize – and we don’t think about the different styles we may need until we’re headed out the door and don’t have the coat or jacket we really want! I usually buy a puffer coat and call it a day – but for dressy occasions I love having a longer pea coat, to go out for the night with my girls I love having a little leather jacket or a jacket that can double as a blazer. Teddy coats are huge right now and super cozy, but you don’t need to spend your whole paycheck on a cute one! There are tons out there at great prices.

844096B3-8C57-4099-9ECA-A906FD49E9D2

Couple places I love to get different styles of coats are Shein, Old Navy, and Chicwish! They have a lot of different styles and they’re really affordable. Easy shipping and returns, and great price points.

I’ve linked my favorites under $50 here below! I’ve also linked a few that are more than $50 – but still worth the extra money and will last you a few seasons!

138BE6FB-94CF-4395-BC74-AD5294C48C7F

The rest of these are also great for winter. I usually default to a classic puffer coat in a grey or black so I can wear it daily, and stains don’t show as much. You still need to wash or dry clean your coats occasionally –  but picking a dark coat can help extend that. With sloppy snow and wet grounds, you’re bound to get a splash up or rub against a dirty car and get a nice big smear where you don’t want it! I have one little white puffer coat that I LOVE, but I feel like I wash it once a week!

Statement Earrings: How to accessorize your looks!

A7CF035B-3A72-4112-802C-B29B6C24977FEarrings are the most fun way to amp up your everyday outfits! We’re coming up on the Holiday Seasons… Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years! Plenty of occasions coming up to really make you look pop! Dinners, parties, company events, and time with family and friends are all excuses to wear a more bold earring and stand out in a crowd!

My favorite places to shop are Target – the Sugarfix line, Baublebar, Jcrew, Loft, and Zara! Most are already at great price points, and these retailers always have sales going!

What I love most about earrings is their ability to completely transform your everyday look. If you’re feeling a little plain or underdressed, add a bold pop of earring to elevate your look!

If you have an event and your dress is solid colored, or doesn’t have a pattern or detailing… the best way to add some sparkle is with a fun pair of earrings!

Sugarfix is the Target brand of Baublebar – and I love a lot of their styles!  Big bold earrings, bright colors, and usually all under $15 each!

How to get the WHITEST teeth with Smile Br!lliant!

I’m teaming up with Smile Br!lliant to give YOU the chance to win a free whitening kit!
Head here to enter the giveaway:

www.smilebrilliant.com/g/sugarcoatedandchic 

This teeth whitening journey I’ve been on lately has been really exciting for me! I was born with naturally yellower teeth – if that’s a word, and have tried multiple types of whitening toothpastes, white stripes, whitening tray programs from the dentist, etc. While I did notice a change right after the stripes were removed, it never seemed to hold, and I was forced to constantly repeat the whitening cycle over and over again.

DD72A0B1-F44D-418B-8435-94B4F1BA3945

Strips are also not cheap! Each time you buy them, it will cost you around $40-$80 and without lasting results, that can be disappointing. Being a coffee lover, I need a whitening program that works for me, fits into my budget, and gives noticeable results that last. Thankfully, I found Smile Brilliant! The #1 Dentist recommended teeth whitening system using custom fitted trays – for only $150!

81F16D62-EC16-4409-AEFB-DFE646193484

There are MULTIPLE reasons this whitening program was a game changer for me! First and most important… it worked! I finished my program about 3 weeks ago and my teeth are still brighter and look great! The reason Smile Brilliant works so well are their custom fit trays. When you purchase a kit – you are set a package to make an impression and exact mold of your teeth. You mail these back, and within a week you are sent your own custom trays that fit your mouth perfectly. This means that every nook and cranny of your teeth will be coated in the whitening gel every time you whiten. You also have these trays for life, and unless you decide to get braces or alter your bite – these will continue to be useful for you. This same type of mold could cost up to $500 from your dentist!

90611A80-DFDE-433C-904A-DEA1CC73C84E

The other thing I loved about this program is the options for kits. There are different levels of whitening you can choose from depending on how stained your teeth are and your sensitivity level! This makes for six options… heavy stains, average stains, light stains – for both non-sensitive and sensitive teeth! I choose the average stains for sensitive teeth.

263AB2F9-6EEF-41ED-B744-54A7DC7B1776

Speaking of sensitive – is it not the worst when you have to whiten daily, and you can barely drink anything hot or cold, bite into food, or chew without extreme sensitivity? Awful! This system not only comes with whitening gel, but includes a desensitizing gel as well! After you whiten, you rinse out your teeth trays and fill them with the desensitizing gel and leave it on for as long as you need. For me I would do this for about 20-30 min – and it was a game changer. I could whiten daily with no sensitivity, which allowed me to go through the process at rapid speed and see noticeable results.

DFDA8C4A-CFE1-441A-8C5F-94D49FB85601

I’m so excited about my results, and happy that this opportunity came my way! This program comes with a 100% guarantee – and the ability to consult with anyone at anytime if you have questions of concerns. The customer service was especially great and they were so helpful in guiding me to making adjustments to my routine if I felt more sensitivity than normal. You can also order more whitening gel and desensitizing gel down the road if you feel you need a touch-up – amazing!

Tooth Whitening Gel

Weekly Round-up!

Happy Monday Babes! Rounding up all my looks from last week with sizing and lots of other details for you! Read my reviews and then head to the gallery to shop!

First look was this adorable Color Block coat! It’s a teddy coat – which are trending right now, but it’s so different than all the other ones out there! The bold colors of pink, deep purple, and ivory make it a standout! It’s also under $80 which is amazing! It’s super warm and snuggly – and has such an easy fit. I’m obsessed! Wearing an xsmall.

3F3CCD04-5BDB-4776-8F57-AB69985EDEB8

I rounded up a TON of booties for you last week as well… with this blush pair being one of my favorites. They come in a few colors, and currently on sale! I love how flat they are, and the braiding detail adds such a great pop of detail! I chose the light pink color – which paired well with the jacket – but they go with white, black, grey’s browns… literally all of your basic colors! They’re super cute and run TTS.

858C1144-5794-4C39-8E60-96CBD07E5035

Check out my boot post for all my favorite booties for fall, at many different price points! Here’s a close up of the fun detail on the top of these little ankle boots! The heel is very low too, and they’re really comfortable!

97F1BC20-DE4C-44AC-B426-E444C5E219A3

My second look was this AHHHmazing poncho from Chicwish. This was gifted to me as part of a collaboration – and I’m OBSESSSSSSED! I mean I know I say that about everything I own – ha, but this is something I would not have picked for myself, so I’m so glad this was choosen for me! The deep rust/brown color is so perfect for fall and all the upcoming holidays! This would be perfect for Thanksgiving as you can hide all that turkey and stuffing under it! The sleeves are dollman – so everything just hangs so perfectly. Wearing and small!

64CFB851-3F48-425E-B5A5-D66465359391

These boots I snagged during the #nsale, and I’m finally rocking them! They’re such a deep brown color and have a nice suede finish. They have little studs around the edge of the boots by the ankle giving it a little more detail. These are Sole Society, so they’re comfortable and a great price point. Run TTS. Paired them with my favorite Madewell perforated tote in that same shade of deep brown.

Another amazing sweater from Chicwish is below! How cute are these pom hearts? This sweater comes in a few colors, and there’s also kids sizes too so if you have a daughter – you can have her match you! The ivory is such a bright crisp color, and the poms are in the shape of little hearts! The neckline is a soft V which makes it easy to wear off the shoulder like I did in the photo! It’s chunky and warm and just perfect to pair with your favorite jeans or skirt!

These last two pictures – uggghhh can we just savor the leaves for a moment? I do brighten up my photos a little bit – however these trees looked exactly the same in person as they do int he picture! I don’t want winter to come yet!

This first look – I was a little worried I had wayyy to much tan/camel tones going on – but you guys love it! Yay! These boots and sweater are two of my favorite purchases so far this season. It took me a while to get on the OTK boot trend, but I’m so glad I finally spend the money on these bad boys! I can never find a pair that is slim enough, but stays up on my legs and these are perfect! Run TTS.

AC1DE541-9766-4E12-B71B-1DF68619E8B5

This skirt is under $50 and I love that it’s corduroy! It’s really high wasited, but still covers your butt. Very important for me, ha! I’m too old to have things hanging out! Another reason I paired it with this long Madewell color block sweater! This sweater can be worn with anything, any color top under it, and casual or dressy. It’s a little expensive full price – I wait until they go on sale, but they’re definitely worth the money! They don’t shrink and the fit is amazing. Also, they’re very soft for a wool sweater! Wearing an xsmall!

And finally – this cute little sweater thermal! I love it! The sleeves are so pretty and the detail on them is unreal! Free people is one of my favorite brands for this reason. I went up one size in this to a small, and the fit is perfect. Tuck it in, wear it with a skirt, wear it out with some booties – it looks great with anything. Definitely a front runner for Thanksgiving week! Happy shopping babes! So much fun stuff coming up for the Holiday Season! Stay Tuned!

The Best Boots for Fall!

I think one of my favorite reasons for loving fall and winter weather is because it’s boot season! No need to keep your toes perfect and flawless with cute polish – let your shoes do the talking. I may be saving a little extra money in not-as-frequent pedicures, however I have a serious problem in spending all my funds on cute shoes… eek! My wallet is not happy, but my feet are dancing with excitement and that’s all that matters!

There are so many different styles out there lately, it can be hard to pick and choose – and also stay in your budget. No worries! I’ve got you covered on all my favorites, as well as the best brands to splurge on, as well as where to find quality shoes at affordable prices! This allows you to make your dollars work for you, and create multiple looks with lots of fun boots! YAY.

Couple of my favorite places to get bargain boots are Lulu’s and DSW! Without having to wait for a major sale and risk the retailer running out of your size, these outlets are my go to! Some of those favorites are below!

All my fav Lulu’s Boots are below!

Usually my go to stores are Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. They have all the best brands, and frequently go on sale. They also stay on top of trends and have a wide variety of types of boots. Casual, dressy, wear to work, date night looks, bedazzled and holiday boots... you can literally get everything at one store!

My favorite boots under $100!


My favorite boots under $50 are below!

Some others that are worth the splurge!
