flutter + flutter.

Out for a Sunday stroll among the beautiful old buildings in Jekyll Island’s historic district. A ten-mile bike ride followed…not the wisest of moves.

top and shorts: bcbgeneration at social statesboro // belt: dish statesboro // sandals: gomax // clutch: kate spade // cuff: tory burch // sunglasses: rayban

Normally we go for juxtaposition of shape in our outfits: flowy top with skinny jeans, fitted tank with breezy wide leg pants, etc. But we think this BCBGeneration flutter top paired with BCBGeneration flutter shorts kinda WORKS. Of course, defining your waist with a belt (L’s FAVORITE, also shown here) is key. Photos taken on Jekyll Island, Georgia.

amika love.

One of the highlights of our trip to MAGIC was our stop at the Amika Braid Bar at BCBGeneration. We just couldn’t resist the offer to get new hair after a long plane ride. And seriously, what’s better than someone playing with your hair? NOTHING.

Super-talented hair and makeup artists Erica Preus and Mireille Bertrand gave us each a new braid. L got a double braid into a fishtail, and J got a sweet little braid and a few curls.

new hair, new us.

We love the Amika products – especially the nourishing mask – and we highly recommend them. You might have received a sample in your Birchbox! If you didn’t (or even if you did!), comment on this post and you could win a few Amika samples! Good luck!

friday five: fall trends

GAH, we are ready for fall weather. We saw so many cute fall pieces in Vegas – can’t wait for the temperatures to drop a little so we can start wearing them! Our top five fall trends:

1. Burgundy – Every season has an “it” color, and this fall it’s burgundy. This pretty shade looks great with black, brown, camel and gray. It also works well with other jewel tones like cobalt.

BCBGeneration Burgundy Dress
an LBD, yes…a little BURGUNDY dress.
The Glitter Life Burgundy Clutches
these bcbgeneration clutches will arrive in a few weeks!

2. Moto Boots – Moto boots are replacing equestrian styles (which we still LOVE, don’t get us wrong) as the preferred footwear for fall. We fell in love with these two boots at Rocket Dog. BTW, we’re going to be seeing a lot this olive/taupe color (middle) this season.

tall? short? either way!

3. Leather – It feels weird to call leather a trend, because classic leather bombers and pencil skirts ALWAYS feel right to us. What’s new this season is leather on unexpected pieces, like on this cream t-shirt and fisherman’s sweater.

The Glitter Life Leather Accents
this sweater and knit top are on the way to Social as we speak!
The Glitter Life Leather Shorts
leather will continue to be huge for spring. these shorts will arrive in january!

4. Sweatshirts – This casual, comfy  piece was EVERYWHERE at the show. We saw everything from basic grey numbers to sweatshirts emblazoned with novelty graphics, lace and sequins. You can wear these pieces just about anywhere, but be sure to keep the rest of your outfit polished. Skinny jeans, short boots and a sleek ponytail work perfectly.

we have a serious crush on anything wildfox.

5.Midi Lengths – Okay, this trend will take a little getting used to…but we’re kinda loving it. Midi length – somewhere between knee length and maxi length – feels really fresh right now. Still not sure? Check out this midi tutu at BCBGeneration. Eeeek!

YAY for the weekend!

recap: MAGIC.

Our pics are finally uploaded…and we’re ready to share our favorite images from our MAGIC trip. Overall, the trip was a success (though neither one of us felt 100%). We stuck to our trends list (more on that Friday!), only got on the wrong bus ONCE, and even squeezed in a little R & R before we hopped on the red-eye back to Atlanta.

Get excited for some nail polish inspiration tomorrow, followed by our Top Five Fall Trends on Friday. Happy Hump Day!

friday five: packing for a quick trip.

Has everyone’s week been as crazy as ours? We have been positively manic preparing to be away from our offices next week. Now that the work day is over, we’re focusing on packing for our trip to Las Vegas on Monday. We are big fans of minimal packing, so we choose our items carefully. Here’s what we’re packing for our short trip.

The Glitter Life Quick Trip Packing List
this will totally fit in a carry on.

1. BCBGeneration Faux Leather Skirt. Of course we’re going to Vegas for work…but we do plan to get in a drink or two when we’re done. This skirt is a travel dream – it’s lightweight, will never wrinkle, and absolutely does not show dirt.

2. BCBGeneration Asymmetrical Knit Skirt. Long days at the apparel show make comfort a necessity. This simple knit skirt works with the ankle boots or the flats, and looks great with the slouchy tee (untucked) or the basic tank (tucked in and paired with the wide belt).

3. Rocket Dog Ankle Boots. We will be walking a LOT next week (in fact, we’re going to use the iPhone app Moves to track our steps! Stay tuned.), so comfy shoes are key. These Rocket Dog “Sayla” ankle boots are perfect for the trip; they look cute with skinny jeans, shorts and skirts alike. Pair them with the leather skirt and you can go anywhere in Vegas. [This also gets us out of packing heels! SO BULKY.]

4. BCBGeneration Flowy Top. We love the look of a flowy top and sleek skinny jeans. This top works for day or night, and the pretty lime color adds a nice pop to all these neutrals.

5. Rampage Studded Loafers. Flats are a must – a cinch to pack and easy to walk in. These Rampage “Ludo” gray studded loafers work with the skirt (add the white tank) and the jeans (add the flowy top or the slouchy tee).

Outfit Ideas

  • skinnies + slouchy tee + loafers = plane ride there / day 1 of the show
  • knit skirt + tank + wide belt + ankle boots = day 2 of the show
  • leather skirt + tank + ankle boots = cocktails at the chandelier bar
  • skinnies + flowy top + ankle boots = plane ride home

These five pieces work together in multiple ways. All you need to add is a few basics: tank(s), v-neck, skinny jeans and a belt. Throw in our swimsuits and coverups, and we’re good to go! All items are available at Social Statesboro and Dish Statesboro.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram @glitter_blog_xo this weekend as we prepare for the trip!

We couldn’t decide which way we liked this top best: tucked in or out. Normally we’re tucking in, but we really like the flowy lines created when left untucked. Which look do you like best?
