New year, new outfits.

You guysssss…

We hope you had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year’s! We definitely did – not only did all of our boys have a large time (tools and 4-wheelers ruled this year), but my Georgia Bulldogs are GOING TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP! 2018 is going to be epic. I just have this feeling.

Here are a few of my favorite outfits from the last few weeks…

Bernardo Coat
i would have DIED this winter without this coat.

South Georgia has had an unseasonably cold winter – in fact, it’s actually SNOWING here today (more about that later). This hooded Bernardo puffer coat saved my life – it’s super lightweight and packable but also *somehow* manages to keep me very, very warm. This exact coat is sold out, but I’ve linked a ton of super-similar options by the same brand, as well as my black Spanx denim leggings and this cute J Crew Factory blanket scarf (psssttt…it’s now 60% off with promo code CHILLY).

Bow Tie Look
festive Christmas Eve outfits for the oldest and me.

I hestitate to refer to the bow-tie “trend’ because to me this is a classic style and not at all trendy…but Gucci did them this year so they’re on everyone’s radar now. Sole Statesboro has a great dupe for the Gucci version (which I wore Christmas Eve, above!), andhere are lots of similar styles available at lower price points. I paired my grosgrain bow-tie with this turtleneck sweater and skater skirt (both from Sole) and added the same Spanx tights and super-comfy Toms booties I’ve been wearing all winter. And yes, I dress my boys in knee socks, and NO they don’t complain…yet.

 

All Black + Touch of Silver
ready for NYE!

Now that the holidays are over, an all-black outfit kinda fits my mood. I especially love it with just a touch of silver, like this cute crossbody bag.  My BCBGeneration vegan leather skirt (seen here paired with the same turtleneck, tights and booties as above!) is not yet available online, but I linked a ton of similar options in a variety of lengths, sizes and prices.

 

 

Joe Snow Angel
yes, this really happened in Statesboro!

Meanwhile, we’re in the midst of a legit winter storm…check out our Insta stories for more pics! Stay safe and warm!

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!
