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
this adorbs romper is available at sole // click here to shop five more under $50!

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.

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

2. Sweet Treat. You’ve got fifteen minutes, right? Whip up this easy (you can even make it ahead of time) “Cupid’s Cloud” raspberry and cream dessert from the fabulous blog A Pretty Life. It’s romantic enough for the two of you, but it’ll also please a crowd. Winning!

Raspberry Cream
step up your game and present this in wine glasses. you have some, right?

3. Cards. L’s friend Lauren went Pinteresting and made adorable valentines for her daughter’s class (a riff on the one below). You could also go old-school with retro kiddie valentines from the Dollar Store.

Sucker Valentine
freakin cute. image: the coterie blog.
Baby Joe

4. The perfect gift. Guys are under a LOT of pressure on Valentine’s Day. Come on, get him something too. Think out of the box (zing!) and put together a cute a grab-bag of his favorite things.

these are a few of his favorite things.

when we hit it big, we’ll set up an office with matching snakeskin sawhorse desks (two’s company).
