Outlet/light wiring question

Hello, I have 2 outlets followed by 3 small led step lights on one circuit. If I add a switch in between the outlets and the lights, would the switch turn off the outlets as well as the lights? I'd like to avoid that. Power source is going to the outlets first with standard hot/neutral/ground then goin to the lights. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

If the power goes to the receptacles first....... then a switch between them and the step lights will not affect the receptacles.
