Y’ALL! IT’S LIVE! It’s FINALLY LIVE!
My friend Cassie’s line, the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort Collection, is now available at Nordstrom!!! Let that sink in. I can’t even believe it. And it’s her 2nd full collection with Gibson. AND NORDSTROM.
She’s worked so hard on this for so many months, making sure that everything would be perfect. And you know what? IT IS! I’m SO PROUD of her and SO EXCITED about all of the cute new pieces in my closet!
Here’s what you need to know…
There are 13 pieces, and everything is DARLING. And not just kind of darling. SERIOUSLY DARLING. We’re talking gorgeous and happy colors, fun prints, and oh so pretty feminine details.
I’m only highlighting a handful of pieces today, but Cassie is in every single piece ON THE NORDSTROM SITE, so you can head to the landing page to check all of the pieces out and see what every single one of the pieces look like on her. And the entire collection comes in plus size too! AWESOME!
I love the entire collection, but there are 2 pieces in particular that I freaked out over, even when they were just in the beginning stages of design. And when they were finished? I died. I was dead. They are tops that I will wear ALL THE TIME. I know myself, and I have no doubt that I will grab them again and again. AND AGAIN. And I feel like I know y’all pretty well too. And TRUST. Y’all are going to be grabbing for them as well.
I got all 4 colors in both of these pieces because I wanted to be able to show them all. Plus, I JUST WANTED THEM ALL. I think these are going to be two of the most popular pieces in the entire collection, and I want y’all to see all of them before they start selling out. Because these babies will sell out.
I’m flat out obsessed.
I cannot stress enough how in love I am with this tee.
It’s the embroidered floral design that I flip over, but it’s in a reallllllllllly soft cotton instead of the stiff cotton that you usually see with these types of shirts. I’m telling you, it’s incredibly soft. And I love how it’s a super relaxed fit. The soft pleats under the embroidery work are so pretty, and they add femininity without adding any unnecessary bulk.
The classic black and white design will be a staple in my closet.
For size reference, I think this top is true to size. I tried on all of Cassie’s x-small pieces, and based upon the fit, I thought I was going to need a medium in this top. The medium is good on me (you’ll see it on me later in the post), but I feel confident that my regular size small would have been just fine in this tee.
In addition to the top, we need to talk about the sandals and the bag, because you are going to be seeing them throughout today’s post. These yellow slide sandals come in 6 colors, are very comfy, and true to size. I was drawn to this fun yellow, and I found that they added a great extra punch of color to so many of today’s outfits. AND Y’ALL! THIS BAG! It’s only $34.99 and it’s too cute for words. It’s a thickly woven rattan and such a cute size. The tassel is removable, and there’s a neutral colored drawstring closure on the inside to make sure all your things stay inside.
LOOK! HOW! DARLING!
This vibrant blue is gorgeous! I’m showing it here with a great pair of frayed denim shorts, but it will look so awesome with a pair of crisp white jeans.
And I’ve got another amazing bag! This one has a cross body option and is quite a bit bigger than the one above. The handles and the tassels are both SO MUCH FUN. It is well constructed, has an interior liner that you can cinch up, and it also comes in an all blue option.
The slide sandals are from Amazon, and I love the light neutral color of them. They come in 6 additional colors, including a gorgeous red and a striking gold and silver. I got my regular size, but if you are between sizes, I would suggest sizing up a 1/2 size.
My stacking bracelets are from a couple of years ago, and I still reach for them, They come in a rainbow of colors, I have them all, and I just mix and match them based on the outfit (as you will see in today’s post). They aren’t cheap at $20 each, but they are GORGEOUS and totally worth it. I love them. They are made of marbled agate druzy beads and each one has a gold disc and a tassel.
And a light blush with a coral/red embroidery? YES, PLEASE! This color combo is so pretty and feminine. Blush is one of my favorite colors, and I especially love it when paired with red, so I was thrilled when they added this combination to the line.
The frayed hem denim shorts have great reviews, but popular sizes are already selling out. They are true to size for me.
I decided to keep the color palette simple with this outfit, and the earrings and clutch complimented the tee perfectly!
And if you are going to design a top like this, you of course have to do a bright white with multicolor embroidery. This top screams SUMMER and BEACH VACATION!
You might recognize these cognac slides, because I had the same pair in a vibrant orange last year. They are very comfy, true to size, and awesome.
These non distressed denim shorts are stretchy, comfy, and from the same maker of our distressed denim shorts last year. In fact, I would say they are actually more stretchy, so you might want to consider sizing down if between sizes.
And, ladies! This round rattan cross body bag is just UNDER $30! This one has a cute floral lining, but if you click HERE and scroll down just a bit, you can see tons of great options with different linings.
And here it is on me!!!
LADIES, PAY ATTENTION WHEN I SAY THIS. I feel like this might be one of my favorite tees I’ve ever owned. YES, IT’S THAT GOOD. I love all 4 colors for different reasons, and I cannot pick a favorite. If you love it as much as I do, maybe you even consider buying 2. If you can only buy one thing in the collection, I would buy this tee.
It gives great coverage of your upper arm (I know lots of you want that!), and the relaxed fit is flattering and comfortable.
I’m showing all 4 colors on instastories today, but I wanted to make sure you got to see one on me in the post to see the fit. Again, I’m wearing a medium, but I feel confident that my regular size small would have been just fine in this tee. Still, I don’t mind the way the medium fits, so I’m keeping it!
And yes, the bag is to die for.

And here’s my 2nd favorite piece! It’s bright, fun, and FLIRTY! I love all 4 colors of this one too, but I think this pink and red combination is my favorite.
The material is gauzy and oh so soft.
For size reference, I sized up to a medium in this top and definitely needed the medium for room in the chest. If you don’t need extra room up there, you should be okay in your regular size. I do not agree with the website instructions that suggest sizing down.
These earrings are UNDER $10 and come in 5 additional colors.
Many items in the collection you can wear your regular bra with, but if the item requires a strapless, THIS IS THE ONE YOU NEED TO BUY. Trust me. You’ll love it. This is a strapless bra that I sometimes wear even when a strapless is not required. Because it’s just that good.
And HOW STINKING CUTE is this colorful clutch paired with this vibrant blue?!?
The clutch is ONLY $13!!!! WHAT THE HECK? It’s well made and will go with so many different colors and outfits. It also comes with a delicate silver chain should you want to carry it over your shoulder.
The yellow slide sandals are making yet another appearance, and I thought the turquoise earrings did a great job of tying in the clutch. They are just under $9, a great size (not too big and not too small), and they come in 14 color choices!
I’d seen these lilac jeans online from one of my favorite brands, and I immediately thought that I might need them. When I got this top in, I KNEW I needed them. The bright white of the top with the yellow, lavender, and navy rickrack is precious. This top will of course be great with white jeans and regular denim, but I thought pairing it with these lilac jeans made it extra special. For size reference, I went with a petite in these so they would be ankle length on my 5’4″ frame. I stuck with my typical 4s because they are quite stretchy. The 4P is perfect for me.
My must have wedges are back this year and come in 3 additional colors. THESE WEDGES ARE INCREDIBLE. They are very comfy, true to size, and can easily be dressed up or down.
These raffia earrings are big, but very lightweight! They also come in a sunshine yellow and a hot pink.
This black top is another favorite and perfect for a night out on the town. I have it paired here with my favorite white jeans from last year and my must have wedges . Sadly, my white jeans aren’t currently available, and I don’t love the new Articles of Society white jeans at Nordstrom. They are too high waisted and I’m not a fan of the fit. However, there are a couple of pairs to choose from at Nordstrom Rack that look like great options, and they are just under $40!
Here it is on! Again, I sized up to a medium and definitely needed the room in this one.
It’s a crinkly gauze, so it will keep you cool on hot summer days. The top stays off the shoulder, but the elastic is soft, so it’s still very comfortable. I’m so excited to have this sassy little number in my closet and can’t wait to pull it out for girl’s nights out and date night! If you’re going on a beach vacation, this one is a must.
My earrings are super lightweight and a great vibrant pink. And y’all, THIS BAG and THESE SHOES! And I’m of course wearing this strapless bra.

The collection has several dresses in it, but this striped number with the darling ruffled little sleeves grabbed me immediately. Head to the site to see how cute the back is!
This dress is just like the embroidered tee, incredibly soft and comfortable.
I think this is my 4th year with my rainbow wood tassel necklace, and it’s still going strong. It has always been my most worn accessory during the spring and summer months. It just makes everything cuter! (Great news! They are bringing it back again because I begged them to! You can order it now, it just has a 2.5 week ship time.)
And here I am wearing it! I love it here with my must have denim jacket and must have wedges, but it would even be cute thrown over a swimsuit as a cover up! I’m wearing my regular size small here, but I’m actually going to order the medium petite to compare the fit on that. I wouldn’t mind it being a little looser on me. Later in the week I’ll be showing it dressed up with wedges, but I’ll also be wearing this really casually with my beloved shoreline converse.

As I mentioned before, this a collection of 13 pieces, and all of them are wonderful! Check out all of the pieces below, and CLICK HERE to SHOP ALL OF THEM and see them in one spot! And don’t forget the entire collection comes in plus size as well! Most pieces have at least 2 colorways, and some have as many as 5, so you really need to check everything out on the site.
I would be buying and wearing all of the pieces in the entire collection even if a dear friend wasn’t responsible for them, but the fact that she is just makes my heart swell with pride. I can’t wait till I get the first compliment when I’m out and about around town. You can better believe I’ll be like “RIGHT???? MY FRIEND!!!!! SHE DID THIS!”
If you don’t have a vacation soon, you probably need to book one. But even if you have nowhere to go, you can just be adorable at home. That’s my plan, anyway!
Congratulations, Cassie! The entire line is absolutely beautiful. Now, sit back, relax, and marvel at how darling everybody is in YOUR clothing line!
