Disney Style!

Posted on February 09, 2017 by Sandi McClain | 0 comments

Blogging about our most magical trip to Disney to celebrate our oldest son's 5th birthday! We left our 18 month old behind (**tear**) for a long weekend jam packed full of sweet, sweet memories. 
Here's my three outfits for three different park days, but we have SO much more in the store I could show you. Lots of great "ath-leisure-wear" that combines athletic wear + leisure and that means comfort and a mama's must have. Great for any theme park this Spring Break or Summer or just hanging out with the kids, your girlfriends, etc... 
First up, a little number for the Animal Kingdom! 
Ciao Milano Tess Jacket in Avocado // Sailor Stripe Shirt (sold out, similar here) // Spanx Look at Me Now Leggings (not available on our website, but available in store!) // Betsy Pittard Bracelets via Blossom Shoes & Such // Ugg Keile Calf Hair Leopard Slip On Sneakers
We hope to get more of this fun striped shirt soon (if you were one of the lucky ones to snag it back before Christmas, then you know just how good it is!) because its seriously the perfect length for leggings. Speaking of leggings, the new Spanx Look at Me Now Leggings we got in are AMAZING. Worth every bit of the $68. They just "hold everything in", are slimming and COMFY TOO. I can't handle a legging that isn't comfy (Helloo isn't that why we love leggings?) I would recommend these Spanx leggings again and again. Pick some up next time you're in the store!
Once the temps warmed up in the afternoon, the Tess Jacket was great to throw around my waist. It's also super lightweight and easy to pack! Didn't take up much room in our suitcase when coming home. Lastly, I was nervous about the the Ugg Sneakers being comfy enough to walk several miles through Animal Kingdom but the verdict is in...they WERE. I wore no show socks with them and they were comfy from 4am - 8pm that evening. 
Now onto Magic Kingdom. I needed something fun for my big boy's birthday, but yet 100% comfy to last from 7:30am - possibly 10pm that night. I picked up this soft tee from a cute husband & wife shop (which I love supporting small businesses) called Happily Ever Tees. 
Epic Park Tee // Minnie Ears // Karlie Bronx Bomber Jacket (now on sale!) // Betsy Pittard Bracelets // New Balance Womens 410 (now only $35!)
I ended up wearing the Texture Short in Black from Sugar (last Fall style, by JoyJoy) and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a large in the Epic Park Day tee and a size  6/8. I could have went to a medium actually, so I would definitely say they run true to size if not full and they are SO dang soft!
I layered a black and white striped sweater (older style from Sugar) over it for early chilly mornings. We made sure to pack one for Cade too! February weather in Orlando = layers and layers. 
Our third and final full park day was Hollywood Studios! My go-to outfit for comfort, layers and a pop of print? A Lilly pullover + Lilly tee + Lilly Callahan short. 
The Callahan is a 5 inch style (perfect length) and cotton, so they're comfy and dry quick as well.

Lilly Pulitzer Leona Zip Up (from years ago, that I had monogrammed) // Lilly Pulitzer Callahan Short in Sunken Treasure

and here's a few of my absolute favorite pics from the weekend! 
(all taken on an iPhone 7)
if you're heading back to the happiest place on Earth and wearing Sugar, please be sure to tag us so we can REPOST! Also, a huge thanks to everyone who commented tips & tricks for Disney on our Instagram pic last week. 
Until next time Disney! C ya real soon...

The Fashion We Crave: Top 10 Fall 2016 Trends

Posted on September 21, 2016 by Sandi McClain | 0 comments

 What's trending for Fall 2016?? We're making it easy and compiling a list of our Top Ten Favorites that we are craving here at Sugar this season!

You can also see Stylcaster's Top 12 Best Fall 2016 Fall Trends here.

10. CHAMBRAY

Ok, chambray button ups have been a crucial part of wardrobes for several seasons now. If you haven't snatched one up by now - let me grab your precious face with my hands and beg you to please. buy. one. now. This is the season. This is the time. We can assure you it's the best money you've ever spent as it will be one of the most versatile (if not THE most versatile) piece in your closet. If you've got black skinnies and tan boots? Boom. You've got an outfit a la Pinterest. Easy. Wear it with colored skinnies. Wear it with shorts. Tuck into a skirt. Wear over a tank. Layer under a sweater, cardigan, etc... You seriously need. NOW.

9. STATEMENT FURS

Ok, so last year you caved and purchased a fur vest. **clap clap** GOOD! This year, let's take that even further with "statement furs". That's right ladies, make a STATEMENT with those faux fur pieces. Here's a sampling of what's on order to arrive next month at Sugar. We LOVE animal print fur coats and there's so much more where this come from. Whether it's a printed fur or just a fun color, dare to take it to the next level and go bold!

8. CHOKERS

Yep. Can you believe it? They're BAAAAACK! We will have several "accessory" choker pieces in the store, but for those who are scared to re-live their 90s past with a true choker necklace...why not try the "choker trend" with a fun choker style dress like this one by Karlie? We will have more like this coming soon - dresses, tops, etc... it's an easy way to add just a touch of this trend! 

7. ANYTHING OLIVE or MERLOT

In our opinion, the top two colors of Fall because we couldn't choose just one. Olive is EVERYWHERE and oh-so-gorgeous. Suede dresses, skinny denim, fun silk blouses. You'll find this shade all throughout the store in so many versions. The same with merlot (same as marsala - 2015 Pantone Color of the Year) and it is definitely favored by our Carolina Gamecock fans!

6. RUFFLES

Who doesn't love ruffles? OMG. So feminine. So chic. It's a fun way to add a little "oooh-la-la" to drab Fall styles. We love this new off the shoulder suede dress with ruffle detail by Karlie (Roxanne Ruffle Dress). Talk about combining three trends in one? Triple threat!!!!!! 

5. JUMPSUITS

Ya betta jump on this trend asap. It's here to stay. Rompers were big for Spring/Summer and jumpsuits are big for Fall/Winter. We have so many options in the store right now. Whether it's our silk Taylor Jumpsuit by LaRoque (shown here) or our Karlie Jump Back in Time Culotte Jumpsuit, we've got options for every shape, every event and every budget.

4. FRINGE

Fringe is EVERYWHERE. We've had fun fringe cardigans and now a great pocket wrap with fringe detail that you NEED. 

and you're going to see fringe on a loooot of shoe options. you NEED a fringe shoe. Whether a bootie, a boot, there's so many options. Just make sure you have a little fringe near your toes. I snagged these from Blossom Shoes & Such this year and I'm obsessed.

3. SUEDE

Luscious. Yummy. Can't keep your hands off of it - suede. Whether it's a fun fringe suede cardigan (which we had by Jade and it FLEW out!) or a great shift dress. There's a lot of suede arriving at Sugar on a weekly basis this Fall. Its a super easy trend to try and buy!

Karlie Mandy Suede Shift

2. SNAKESKIN

Hot. Hot. Hot. You know we loooove a good animal print. Cheetah. Leopard. Zebra. Now, we introduce to you - snakeskin. It's been around for a while, of course, but this season it's an absolute must. We've got so many fun printed snakeskin tops and great dresses on the way too! Another super easy trend to incorporate into your closet this season!

Karlie Strike Back Tunic 

1. OFF THE SHOULDER

Tan shoulders or not, you're still going to want to continue showing those shoulders this season ladies. It's a sexy way to easily jazz up your wardrobe and is so flattering and just FABULOUS. Again, so many different options in store - whether dresses or tops, we've got you covered!

 Back in Black Dress

even more Fall trends we absolutely love, have in stock right this second and think they are also must haves for 2016:

Fall florals : such as dresses like this one

Leopard prints : I mean, this is a given for us. Try a great silk leopard dress like this one.

Plaid flannels: So yummy. Layer under vests. Wear as is with your favorite denim and boots. Check out the new ones from Lauren James.

Colored Denim: long gone are the days of just your basic denim blues. We like bold hues like this olive by Citizens of Humanity or a rich purple by Articles of Society.

Anorak Jackets: we DIE over these and think they are an absolute must on your Fall 16 Wish List. So much so that we should have added it as number 11 on this list. Our new Ciao Milano jackets are already flying off the racks, so you need to stop by and see what all the hype is about. Trust. us. 

Sheila Fajl hoops: a new line we are carrying at Sugar and AAALL the rage with the college gals this season. Have no fear, we're selling to high school gals all the way up to your grandmother's age. They are perfect for ALL AGES and 18k gold plated over nickel free brass handmade in Brazil. Can you say #1 Christmas present? We thought so.

Stop by and let us help you style new Fall 2016 trends with items you may already have in your closet. It't not about purchasing an entire new Fall 2016 wardrobe, yet incorporating new trends little by little to spice up what you've already got.

New Fall styles arriving daily. Look forward to seeing you soon!

southern tide: weekend chic

Posted on February 20, 2016 by Sandi McClain | 0 comments

Southern Tide is the epitome of casual, preppy chic. Whether it's an effortless cotton shift that can be dressed up for even the most elaborate Summer soiree' or just a simple, super soft cotton tee + chino shorts...it's always easy....and always chic.
Our weekend look is one for lunch dates at Howard's deli, t-ball games with the kids, bike rides by the lake, or cool mornings/nights at the beach. A classic blue oxford is essential to any Southern girl's wardrobe and we love the pop of green with the Caroline short. Top it all off with a seersucker Skipjack hat and pearls and you're ready for the day!
