BCBG

our favorites: 9.19.17

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!

viva las vegas.

It’s no secret that we love a good getaway to Vegas {you can see our past trips here and here.}

Our travels out west include work and play while shopping for L’s boutiques Sole + Dish. With such a packed schedule on short trips, we’ve become experts in transitioning our outfits from day to night. Needless to say when Juliana from Vegas.com challenged us to create the #UltimateVegasOutfit, we accepted. Let’s set the scene for a day in Vegas:

Bonjour: Well, good morning! Time to fuel up for the day at one of the best breakfast | brunch spots on the strip, Mon Ami Gabi. From there, hit the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian for a little retail therapy and maybe a gondola ride! Need a pick me up after shopping? (and that means a cocktail) Skip over to Sugar Factory for a “grown-up drink“.

Vegas.com Challenge
Bonjour: romper | fedora | flats | cross-body bag | aviators      Bonne Nuit: romper | belt | heels | clutch | earrings

Bonne Nuit: Let’s take on the night. After a quick change at our home away from home, Hard Rock Hotel, we waste no time and head to dinner downstairs at our favorite, Pink Taco. Keep in mind happy hour is from 3-7PM! Post-dinner drinks at The Chandelier Bar in The Cosmopolitan are a must then maybe a little blackjack in the casino. #winning

There it is, y’all. The crisp, chill in the air has arrived and we couldn’t be more excited… Excited to update our closets with cool weather essentials! Keep it simple, Sally. All you need are these fall essentials:

Solid long-sleeve tops for layers under blazers and vests:

Faux leather leggings are an absolute must. Pair with heels and a top for a night out or boots for running errands.

While we’re on leather… we ALL need a solid leather jacket. They’re so versatile. Like literally go with everything.

friday five: pick-me-ups.

We can’t lie. It’s been a long week. L has been sick, J’s been swamped at work, and the weather down south has been super depressing. So, in true Glitter Girl style, we’re planning a fun and productive weekend to shake these rainy day WEEK blues. Here’s our plan:

1. Decorate. A little Target-ing always lifts our mood.  A few pics of some recent Target finds..

Coral Pillow
this coral pillow adds life to L’s leather couch.
Nate Berkus Gold Bowl
L scooped this Nate Berkus for Target gold bowl during the holidays.

Have you seen the new and improved Threshold for Target collection? This iron wire table is a MUST have.

Threshold for Target
at $69, why not?

2. Make. Inspired by J’s recent purchase of a green guacamole bowl (from Target! we can’t stop.), we’re going to whip up this fresh Edamame Guacamole on Saturday afternoon and cross our fingers for patio weather. Just add pita chips and a cocktail.

3. Makeover. Our closets, that is. L’s closet is jammed with hangers, and J’s bedroom is a maze of laundry piles. Inspired by this article on Lauren Conrad and this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere, we’re going to at least START spring cleaning our closets.

Messy Closet
before: yikes.
Organized Closet
this is the “after” we’re going for. image: cupcakes and cashmere.

4. Shop. Now that we have some room in our closets, we’re going to reward our superior organization skills with a few spring wardrobe purchases. What? We deserve it! Our picks:

Floral Button Down
L: i’m obsessed with button down shirts, and this pretty floral will energize my trusty navy blazer and white denim. gap.com.
BCBG Madria Sandal
J: I’m reeeally feeling this BCBG Madria Sandal. Pair with white jeans or shorts… done.

5. Nails. What would our Friday Five be without a new nail color? J’s picking up Essie’s Bikini So Teeny at lunch today.

Essie Bikini So Teeny
at least our nails will be springy in this sparkly, cornflower blue.

weekend wrap-up: bulldog 100 + spring mani

Happy Monday, glitter girls!

WOW, what a great weekend. Shop Social Dish was honored at the Bulldog 100 event as one of the top ten fastest growing businesses started by a University of Georgia graduate. L and Joe (and L’s parents) spent a fantastic night at the awards dinner in Atlanta. J had family obligations but was there in spirit. L participated in a Strategy Cafe roundtable with the other honorees – what an awesome networking opportunity.

Thank you to all of our fantastic friends and customers (and those of you who are BOTH) who have made Social and Dish boutiques a success. We have big plans for 2013, and we can’t wait to share them with you on The Glitter Life.

Wine + Cheese
