We’re settling back into a routine after a crazy few weeks that included two birthdays and one hurricane evacuation for me (thankfully, we did not have any damage at home!) and a bachelorette party for Jennifer. I’ve pretty much been living in casual basics these days (including these amazing flares from Dish) – take a look and shop my favorites below!
Now, let’s try to get through week with no major disasters! xo
It has rained literally EVERY DAY this summer – and every single day – it’s forced me to up my rainy-day outfit game. I love this embroidered baseball hat from Dish (I’m also feeling this satin one from Forever 21, which is super similar!), and this lightweight camo jacket has become my go-to layer. It’s under $40 and is stocked in all sizes! I’ve been wearing these TOMS Memphis sunnies for over two years. They fit my face perfectly (no bending or molding necessary), and they never slide off my ears. These come in a bunch of cool color combos; the tortoise ones like mine are on major sale right now!
The Joes and I spent a weekend in Atlanta, doing some tourist-y things, hanging out with Jennifer, Jay and James and attending the christening of our sweet friend Corinna’s daughter Quinn. Little Joe broke hearts in his pink shorts and blazer (his is from Janie & Jack, and I couldn’t find it online…this one from J Crew is similar). Click the photo for the other details, including a few options for his Vineyard Vines shirt.
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…
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!
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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Four straight days of rain drove us to do some serious online shopping this week – but it was mostly putting stuff in our carts and saving for later (hehe). Lucky for us, the Memorial Day Sale at Lulu & Georgia has come along just in time. We’re about to process all our faves and save 25%! Check out what we’re rolling with:
This Moroccan-ish rug is perfect in just about any room: nursery, master, or den.
Love the shagreen finish and brass legs on this end table.
This rose gold side chair is going at the desk in my bedroom.
I have been coveting these cognac velvet arm chairs for foreverrrrrr.
True confession: I am obsessed with palm print and already have a pair of these pillow on my living room couch (though I might move them to my pool area for the summer). You need them, too!
A family of four has a lot of STUFF to corral, so I am always buying baskets. I have at least one in every room! This one is so pretty and will go a long way towards making our TV den look less…brown. More about that room makeover later this summer!
And finally, this little bud vase will be so pretty on a bedside table.
Sale details: Spend $200 and take 15% off with code HEYSUMMER15. Spend $500 and take 20% off with code HEYSUMMER20. Spend $800 and take 25% off with code HEYSUMMER25. Happy shopping!
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…
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 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.
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.
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.
