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

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.

This denim one-piece is technically a romper, not a jumpsuit…but we couldn’t resist. We love the tie-waist detail.

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!

perfect summer look.

Jennifer and I have never been so glad to see Friday. We’ve both been swamped with work, travel and those end-of-the-school-year obligations that seem to snowball around this time. I’m  dreaming of a little beach escape this weekend – if I can actually pull it off, and here’s what I’ll be wearing.

Summer Look The Glitter Life
shop this look

Striped Tee // Madewell makes the best tees, and this striped one rings all my bells. It’s cropped but not TOO cropped, know what I’m sayin’?

Denim Cut-Offs // Levi’s Wedgie Denim Shorts have caused quite a stir this spring. I’m happy to report that they don’t give you an actual wedgie. The high-waisted fit goes perfectly with a cropped tee (see above).

Espadrilles // Jennifer and I can’t get enough slides right now. I picked up this faux-suede pair at Forever 21 in Atlanta last week, and I’ve been wearing them non-stop. They’re under $20, so no big if they get a little sandy at the beach.

Add your favorite sunnies, bikini (I love this classic one in white from Target) and this beach tote (it’s on sale for $29!), and you’re ready to de-stress from the week. Cheers to the weekend! xo

the bag that changed my life.

You guys…

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

I have struggled with a two-bag system for years. I have always carried a purse (for all the usual purse things) as well as a “work bag” for my laptop, notebook, folders, phone charger, etc. It wasn’t that I hadn’t tried to find a bag that could do it all…I just couldn’t find one. Sure, I’ve had gigantic purses that fit my laptop, but they were always unstructured bags without compartments. In other words, giant BLACK HOLES in which to lose all my stuff. I could frequently be found dumping the contents of my bag out onto the floor, searching for something random like a mini-stapler. Grrrrrrrr.

And there are certainly plenty of business-y satchels out there…but I have never found one that I didn’t think screamed LAPTOP BAG. I wanted something big enough for my laptop that still looked like a handbag. I wanted it all.

And then I FOUND IT.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
so happyyyyyyyyy

The Tory Burch York Buckle Tote. Full disclosure, Jennifer also has this tote. She had it first! I am totally copying her. I was having the hardest time finding a bag that checked all my boxes, and she suggested this one. What took me so long to buy it? No idea. But I’m so glad I did.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
everything i need to work in a hotel lobby – and I’m currently doing just that – is in this bag.

This York Buckle Tote comes in red, black and navy (shown).

Tory Burch York Buckle Bag The Glitter Life
inside zipper pocket holds my laptop, full-size notebook and various folders

The best part about this bag is the pockets. There are FOUR interior slip pockets (for phone, keys, sunglasses and pens. I have a lot of pens.). In addition, there’s a side zipper compartment where I keep random stuff (hairbrush, etc). The crowning achivement is the interior zipper pocket that divides the bag into two sections. This interior zipper pocket is large enough to hold my laptop, my favorite Sugar Paper Notebook (I use one every two-three months instead of a planner) and various folders. People make fun of my folders, but when you work on-the-go a lot (and I do!), you need access to all your papers like school forms, invoices, etc. My Tory Burch make-up bag (Jennifer gave me this little baby years ago and it has served me so well – what we can say, we’re brand-loyal!) and HOBO wallet (this one is super similar) fit neatly on one side, and I keep my phone and laptop chargers on the other.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
sunglasses, eyeglasses, wallet, make-up bag, keys

If I seem weirdly excited about this bag, it’s because I’ve spent years digging through two bags in frustration, struggling to find my stuff. I highly recommend this tote for anyone who frequently works out of town (me), in coffee shops (me, again) or in any random place (me, me, me). Happy Thursday!

outfit roundup.

This post is a little late, because MONDAY. The struggle is real, you guys! Here’s a look back at our week…

Masters Outfits The Glitter Life
jennifer, jay and baby james last weekend on Masters Sunday

On Masters Sunday, Jennifer bucked the green polo trend and wore this adorable Endless Rose off-shoulder top and her usual Blank NYC white skinnies (the fit is incredible!). And how cute are James’ elephantito driving shoes?? Gotta get Ed a pair!

Brunch Outfit The Glitter Life
me: top // jacket // denim leggings // wedges joe: polo // shorts // sneakers

Same day, a few hours south…Joe and I were at brunch (read the post here). Joe’s AFTCO shorts are from my friend Whitney’s boutique Wrens. He has these in several colors – they hold up great and I love the length. You can call Wrens at 478-268-4728 to order, or click here to order directly from AFTCO. Joe has been wearing classic New Balance sneakers since he could walk – they are the best sneakers you’ll ever buy. I have saved every pair for Ed. As hard as Joe plays, he always outgrows his before they wear out. They come in infant sizes as well. Solid purchase!

 

Fast forward to Easter weekend…(because apparently we wore nothing interesting during the week!)…

Easter The Glitter Life
there are those driving shoes again!

Jennifer and Jay spent James’ first Easter at Reynolds Plantation. Jennifer’s white dress is sold out, but this one is super similar.

James loved the bunny! How adorable is he? His hand-smocked gingham shorttall from Etsy is pretty cute, too.

Easter Egg Hunt The Glitter Life
you can’t see them very well here, but my suede lace-up shorts from Dish are the CUTEST – i love the high-waisted fit. they’re only $29, and they also come in olive (on sale for $20!) and a really pretty dusty rose color.

My husband and I (along with some MAJOR help from my in-laws and some very good friends!) hosted our annual egg hunt on Saturday. We started when Joe Jr. was just 6 months old, and it’s hard to believe that this was our seventh one!  It seems to get bigger every year – this year we had 70 adults and 60 kids. That’s a lot of mimosas and pimiento cheese sandwhiches, yall. You can shop Ed’s Minnetonka moccasins at Sole, or you can shop them on Zappos here.

Easter The Glitter Life
it was EARLY in the morning – we needed an Instagram filter so bad.

An Easter miracle happened in the Lanier family on Sunday morning. We actually got out of the house – fully clothed, with no yelling and no tears – and made it to church in time to take a photo. I got tons of compliments on my drop-waist dress, and little Joe was looking especially dapper in his bow tie from my friend Ryan’s store Bellies, Babies and Ballerinas (you can follow them on Instagram and comment to purchase!).

Have a great week!

PS – Jennifer just had to share these adorable Hinge “Cora” block heels. They’re super comfy and come in TONS of colors…and they’re on sale at Nordstrom right now!
