Tweed Dress: Three ways!

Another styled three ways post for you. I love doing these because you can easily turn one piece of clothing into three totally different looks. Sometimes you would never think to style a dress or a top in a different way than you usually do – so I am here to help!

This tweed dress was gifted to my by Dress & Dwell – and for someone who doesn’t normally wear too many dresses, I was really excited for this one! It’s a square neck with small spaghetti straps, with a wrapped cross-over skirt with a frayed edge. So cute! While it’s adorable on it’s own, I wanted to spice it up from the regular throw on some heels and go! See below! It’s no longer on their site – but it is on Lulu’s and I linked some similar ones too!

My first look is more casual for everyday. This is perfect in the summer or winter, and can be worn with so many different booties. I’m wearing a simple white tee under this dress, and my favorite black pointed to booties. They’re a little higher ankle cut and super pointy so they make your legs look extra long! I also chose to wear my purse as a crossbody so it keeps the look more casual and everyday. I’m obsessed! Such a perfect date night look, brunch with the girls, or just everyday chic!


My second look is more for when it’s colder and you want a little pop of color! Insert these adorable red boots! Ankle cut to help elongate your legs, and the bright red makes this black and white look really stand out! This free people top is the best for this dress. It’s super tight in the body, but the sleeves have this amazing ballooning from the elbow down, so it’s perfect to wear under a dress! It’s adorable on its own with some skinny jeans as well! Kept my jewelry simple here with some studs and a pendant necklace, and rocked the same black crossbody! Love this look and so fun for an office party, a night out on the town, or a Christmas party with your friends!


The third look is my favorite – thanks to these booties! talk about office party chic right here! Throw on a cute black and white cardigan, or a blazer of your choice – and rock these black and white boots! They’re currently on sale for under $80 and are legit amazing. I love a good pair of shoes and these will be so fun all winter with jeans, tights, dresses, skirts – you name it they will jazz up any look! My sweater is from Zara and has the cutest black edge and big gold buttons.


You can shop all these looks below! Hope you enjoyed!

Stocking Stuffers: For Him and Her!

Happy Sunday Babes! Stockings are one of my favorite things to give to my family! There are so many fun items to put in a stocking that will brighten up anyone’s Christmas morning. I usually spend a little more on these items for my family – because it’s a great way to show them you care, and get them lots of little pampering items they most likely wouldn’t buy for themselves! The perfect gift!

I’ve teamed up with The Body Shop to help you pick the perfect pampering gifts for the girls in your life! Their products are vegan, safe, and they never test on animals. You can trust the ingredients are natural and safe for your skin and hair, and made with the best ingredients. They have TONS of scents, so you can find something for anyone! Right now their entire store is 40% off, so grab what you can at even better prices!

My favorite items are below! Click on the photos to shop! If you want a light and refreshing scent – I would recommend the Fuji Green Tea. It’s really light and cleansing without a strong scent. Also the Almond Milk & Honeyis amazing as well. There is tons of great stuff to choose from, but I’ve tried all the below and highly recommend! Such cute packaging for the Holidays and I love how they products make my skin feel!

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.


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!


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!


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.


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!


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!
