what we’ve been wearing.

GOODNESS, you guys. I know I begin every post this way…but we have had a LOT going on. It’s hard for a girl to find the time to post! On top of our usual work and family commitments, Jennifer and I spent last weekend in Atlanta, buying fall inventory for Sole and Dish, taste-testing tacos and perfecting our frose recipe. Here’s a look at the styles and products we’ve been loving lately…

The Glitter Life Rainy Day Look
my go-to summer rainy day outfit

It feels like it has been raining for weeks, and there is no end in sight. Humid temperatures mean I’m pairing my trusty Hunter boots with my favorite Free People cut-offs and this $13 striped tank (which I also bought in solid white and olive because the fit is just so perfect).

The Glitter ife Tassel Earrings
so fun!

Looking to add a pop of color to your outfit? Jennifer’s SUGARFIX by BaubleBar beaded tassel earrings are only $12 and come in tons of colors.

The Glitter Life Cheetah Gladiators
my new favorite sandals

These gladiator sandals are one of my favorite finds this summer. They’re so comfy and the print is adorable. Plus they’re on sale right now for under $30!

The Glitter Life Jennifer Laura
reunited and on our way to dinner in the A

Last Friday, Jennifer and I celebrated National Rose Eve (that’s a thing, I promise) by going to Superica in some of our favorite items. No, we did not dress alike on purpose. Our tops are sold out, but you can still shop our denim and our totes. On Jennifer: Blank NYC white denim (these run small, so size up!) // Louis Vuitton tote. On me: Spanx black denim // Tory Burch tote.

The Glitter Life Rose Tote

Next morning we headed to AmericasMart to buy some fall pretties for my boutiques Sole and Dish. In honor of National Rose Day (I told you, it’s a real thing), I schlepped all my stuff in this Old Navy tote. Oh, and now it’s on sale for $8. You’ll spend more on your bottle of rose!

The Glitter Life Sleep Shorts
comfy and cozy in my home away from home

Great minds think alike…we both bought these fun sleep shorts and wore them Saturday night. UNPLANNED. I went preppy with pink with green leopards, and Jennifer stuck with her siganture palm print. Both prints are still available in all sizes.

The Glitter Life Business Casual
powering through the week in one of my favorite looks

I’ve been crazy busy playing catch-up, and I always seem to work better when I’m dressed for battle. This combo is my go-to: BCBGeneration blazer (also comes in white, paired with that Old Navy tank from up top, in white) // Blank NYC skinnies // suede heels (these are similar, and these are the dream version of mine). My clutch is sold out, but this BP one at Nordstrom is super similar, under $50 and ships free!

Follow along and share your outfits with us on Instagram @glitter_blog_xo. Happy hump day, everyone!

outfit roundup 6.5.17

Happy MONDAY – welcome to a five-day week. Yay? I’m teaching Vacation Bible School all this week, so you may not see me much…but Jennifer is ready with lots of cute Insta posts! In the meantime, here’s a look back at our week…

Family Swimsuit Look The Glitter Life
jennifer’s swim top + bottom + sunnies // james’ swim trunks + rash guard

Jennifer and Jay celebrated Baby James’ first birthday last weekend. Jennifer has promised to share party details soon, but in the meantime you can check out her swim look: one-shoulder top // bottom // sunnies // similar sunnies.

Comfy Shorts Look The Glitter Life
striped tee // pull-on shorts // vegan suede baseball hat

Tuesday and Wednesday were a bit of a struggle. Vacations are nice, but there’s so much to do when you return to the real world! Also, RAIN. My Wednesday look says it all: comfy basics (my fave striped tee and these cute pull-on Madewell shorts) + coffee + trusty ball cap. My hat is from Dish comes in tons of colors – this one from Kohl’s is similar.

Striped Maxi The Glitter Life
the cutest maxi

Target always has a great selection of summer maxis, and this year is no different. Our picks: this striped one and this floral one. Both are under $30!

Brunch Table Setting The Glitter Life
stemless champs flutes // water carafe // cake stand // serving bowl // placemat // gold flatware // 16-piece place setting

Brunch is the most important meal of the day, so when Jennifer’s al fresco Sunday brunch was rained out yesterday, she just moved it inside. Honestly, I would have eaten outside in the rain if it meant using this amazing table setting! Palm print and gold flatware and beaded plates, oh my.

Swimsuit Cover Look The Glitter Life
strapless swim top // swim bottom // tassel earrings // sunnies

So, something exciting happened last week – my boys and I were on the cover of Moments Magazine! We had a blast shooting the cover, even though it was a challenge to get both boys to look in the same direction at the same time – witness my death-grip on Ed. I was flattered to be featured, and Joe and I are grateful for the opportunity to share our family’s story. You can read the article via ISSU here.

Moments Cover The Glitter Life

I’m wearing my favorite bandeau swim top from Target (shop both pieces here), tassel earrings (see more of our fave tassel earrings here) and Toms Memphis sunglasses. The boys’ matching red Prodoh shorts are from local Statesboro store Bellies, Babies and Ballerinas.

Hope everyone has an amazing week – catch us on Insta! xo

Have you guys recovered from the long weekend? Ours was glorious…but Tuesday hit us like a ton of Monday-sized bricks. After struggling yesterday, we’re back in the game today. We put a few items to the test last week – read on for the deets.

Striped Button Down The Glitter Life
vegas-bound

Jennifer and Jay traveled to Vegas last week, and as you probably know that East Coast-to-almost-West Coast flight is BRUTAL. A cocktail and this H&M comfy striped button-down (paired with Blank NYC white denim – of course) made the flight a little more bearable. The top comes in a few more colors/prints!

Pool Look The Glitter Life
bikini top // bottom // cover-up // sandals

Poolside, Jennifer mixed high (classic Jack Rogers sandals – there’s also a wedge version) with a sweet little scalloped bikini top and bottom from Target and a palm print over-up from Old Navy. That’s our style – mixing cute, inexpensive pieces with our fave classic stand-bys.

Cold Shoulder Top The Glitter Life
cold-shoulder top // black denim leggings // tassel ankle-wrap wedges

Back in Georgia, baby Joe graduated from kindergarten! Yes, I’m still going to refer to him “Baby Joe”. And yes, I wore my comfiest basics because sitting on gymnasium bleachers for an hour is no joke. This BCBGeneration cold-shoulder top (re-stocked in all sizes!!), Spanx black denim leggings (also seen here, and virtually once a week), and Coconuts by Matisse ankle-wrap wedges have been on repeat since spring.

Striped Swim Look The Glitter Life
bikini top // bottom // sunblock

The Joes and I didn’t go ANYWHERE for Memorial Day weekend, and it was magical. Sometimes relaxing at home is the best way to recharge. We did have a few friends over for a pool party Saturday night, and this striped bikini top and bottom from Target got a lot of compliments. As I’m writing this post, all sizes are still available! I love how the top feels so secure, and it’s true to size. The bottoms are not as cheeky as most styles right now – I probably could have sized down, but with two kids…better safe than sorry. Also, have you guys tried this SPF 30 Brush On Block yet? It’s a truly genius product – you just twist the brush and a translucent SPF powder materializes on the brush. No greasy sunscreen lotion getting in your eyes, no kids coughing exaggeratedly “ughhhhh it’s in my mouth!!!!” as you spray them. Wait, are mine are the only ones that do that? Seriously, try it.

Flamingo Float
the best $39 you will spend this summer

This flamingo pool float is EVERYTHING. I *hate* floats that don’t keep you above water – if I wanted to get wet, I would SWIM. -_- This giant pink beauty keeps me suspended above the water and provides plenty of room to relax. I do recommend using an air compressor or similar-ish thingy (idk what they’re called, I’m not a scientist) to inflate it. Don’t ask me how I know.

Off Shoulder Striped Top
happy memorial day!

On Memorial Day, Jennifer sipped a few margs in this adorable striped off-shoulder top. It comes in petite AND tall and – unbelievably! – it’s under $20. You’ll have plenty of money left over for queso.

We’ve got tons of cute stuff planned for the next few weeks. Follow along on Instagram and tag us in your own pics!

outfit round-up {5.22}

So apparently the first official day of summer is June 21…Georgia weather definitely didn’t get the memo. Thanks to warm temps, last week’s looks included lots of pretty prints and the PERFECT summer jumpsuit. Take a look…

smiling because i’m wearing my new favorite top and slides, both under $25!

We can’t stop wearing off-shoulder tops, and this one is less than $25! Scoop it before it sells out. My faux-suede slides are under $20. My vintage denim shorts are available at Dish and under $50 – the high-waist fit is so great.

Palm Print Romper
this adorbs romper is available at sole // click here to shop five more under $50!

Palm print is EVERYTHING – we can’t get enough. I’ve been wearing this romper from Sole nonstop, and there are so many other cute palm print styles available right now. Click here to shop five of our favorites, all under $50.

Striped Jumpsuit The Glitter Life
100% in love with this jumpsuit

Another day, another jumpsuit. You can read all about my love for denim jumpsuits here – it’s safe to say I’m obsessed with them. I’m in love with this new arrival at Sole (pictured above) – yes, there’s a cut-out…but the high-waisted pants are so flattering, and the lining means you don’t have to wear a bra. And look at those shoulder ties – that’s a lot of style for only $50! I also love this strapless one with cropped legs, and this one has side slits similiar to mine.

Waffle House The Glitter Life
pullover // leggings // sneakers // bag

Baby James nailed his first trip to Waffle House on Saturday. Apparently they made an exception to the No Shoes, No Service policy for him?! Jennifer’s bopping around in her favorite Zella leggings – they also come in black – and Nike Pro Warm pullover. Because it’s COLD in there, you guys! These Nike sneakers (we talk about them a lot because we both have them/love them) and this LV bag are weekend staples.

We’ve got some great stuff planned for the next few days – Jennifer and Jay are in Vegas, so be sure to watch our Insta story to get behind-the-scenes pics. Hope your week is magical!

PS – This little gem popped up in my Facebook memories on Saturday. It’s us, nine years ago. Check out that sweet iPod dock! We spent all of 2008 wearing True Religion denim and black tops…and you can’t see Jennifer’s shoes, but she has on the same ones I do. Twinning from the beginning. Fun fact – we still like to sit in garages and drink wine.

outfit roundup | 5.15

It’s MONDAY, and there’s so much to smile about! We had a restful Mother’s Day weekend, the I-85 bridge has been re-opened and Jennier’s precious baby James turns ONE. We’ll have deets on his birthday party soon…but in the meantime, let’s prolong going back to the real world by doing a little summer shopping. Click each photo to shop some of our favorite things!

Denim Shorts Look The Glitter Life
jennifer’s fave denim shorts + fringe sandals

Jennifer posted these H&M scallop denim shorts and Steve Madden sandals, and y’all went nuts. In fact, both are now sold out (congrats to those of you who moved fast!), but check out these super-similar fringe sandals from Sole Society. They’re available in three colors and are under $80!

Scallop Bikini Top The Glitter Life
the most flattering bikini top ever

When it comes to swimwear, Target just gets us. They always have adorable styles at great prices. Jennifer loves this pull-over scalloped triangle top. We love that there are two different bottom options: hipster and cheeky.

Summer Look The Glitter Life
our go-to summer look

We posted this look on Friday, and you guys loved it! I can’t get enough striped tees, and this one by Madewell is my new favorite. These high-waist denim shorts (available at Nordstrom) and faux-suede espadrilles (less than $20 you guys!) have been on repeat lately.

Guac Tank The Glitter Life
my weekend uniform

I’ve been wearing this BCBGeneration graphic tank and Spanx camo leggings pretty much every weekend. Both are available at Sole in Statesboro (tank and leggings // take 10% off your order using promo code GLITTER, plus shipping is free!), or you can click the photo to shop.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
the bag that changed my life

I posted about the Tory Burch York Buckle Tote a few days ago, and if you guys missed it you can check out the post here. This bag is genius and has truly changed my life – I highly recommend it for busy, multi-tasking ladies. Details for the rest of the outfit: Spanx denim leggings (seriously the BEST) // After Market babydoll top // Toms mules.

We’ve got a busy week ahead – follow along on Instagram!

brunch, please.

Is it the weekend yet?

Brunch Look The Glitter Life
no time to stand still for a photo – gotta get to brunch!

In my quest to spend some quality time with both of my boys, I’ve been taking them (separately, because I’m not a crazy person) to brunch on Saturdays. Mama time for them and a mimosa for me – everybody wins! My no-fail brunch look includes this adorable ruffle top (also comes in black!), my trusty Spanx denim leggings (which always fit no matter how many crepes I eat!) and my favorite Madewell denim jacket, because the temps have been varying wildly down here…and what’s the point of brunch if you can’t sit outside? We also like to do a little walking around downtown afterwards, so I always wear wedges. These Toms watercolor wedges are my current favorite.

Brunch Look The Glitter Life
top // leggings // jacket 

Spanx leggings and Toms wedges are super comfy – ideal for chasing two rambunctious little ones. I love the fit of this denim jacket, but if you’re looking for something more oversized, this Topshop denim jacket offers a LOT of style at a great price.

outfit inspo: golf tournament attire

Happy Friday! Today we’ve got golf tournament attire on the brain. Next week is Masters Week, and we’re always excited for this storied tournament in our shared home town of Augusta. Of course, the big question is always…WHAT ARE WE WEARING? It’s important to be respectful of golf tradition, but – of course – we also want to be comfy and cute. We love a skort or skinnies paired with a simple polo or shell. And unless you plan to sit in the clubhouse all day (come on, don’t do that!), comfy kicks, oversized sunnies and a cross-body bag are key. Here are our two favorite looks.

Golf Tournament Outfit The Glitte Life
tory burch polo (use code REAL to take an extra 20% off!) // TOMS sunglasses // bcbgeneration skort (one of our favorites – and now it’s on MAJOR sale) // nike sneakers // HOBO crossbody
