What whatttt, we’re halfway to Friday! Let’s take a break from the work week with some retail therapy. A few minutes glancing back at some of our favorites can’t hurt, can it?
We hope the rest of your week is great! xoContinue Reading
Happy MONDAY – welcome to a five-day week. Yay? I’m teaching Vacation Bible School all this week, so you may not see me much…but Jennifer is ready with lots of cute Insta posts! In the meantime, here’s a look back at our week…
Jennifer and Jay celebrated Baby James’ first birthday last weekend. Jennifer has promised to share party details soon, but in the meantime you can check out her swim look: one-shoulder top // bottom // sunnies // similar sunnies.
Tuesday and Wednesday were a bit of a struggle. Vacations are nice, but there’s so much to do when you return to the real world! Also, RAIN. My Wednesday look says it all: comfy basics (my fave striped tee and these cute pull-on Madewell shorts) + coffee + trusty ball cap. My hat is from Dish comes in tons of colors – this one from Kohl’s is similar.
Brunch is the most important meal of the day, so when Jennifer’s al fresco Sunday brunch was rained out yesterday, she just moved it inside. Honestly, I would have eaten outside in the rain if it meant using this amazing table setting! Palm print and gold flatware and beaded plates, oh my.
So, something exciting happened last week – my boys and I were on the cover of Moments Magazine! We had a blast shooting the cover, even though it was a challenge to get both boys to look in the same direction at the same time – witness my death-grip on Ed. I was flattered to be featured, and Joe and I are grateful for the opportunity to share our family’s story. You can read the article via ISSU here.
I’m wearing my favorite bandeau swim top from Target (shop both pieces here), tassel earrings (see more of our fave tassel earrings here) and Toms Memphis sunglasses. The boys’ matching red Prodoh shorts are from local Statesboro store Bellies, Babies and Ballerinas.
Hope everyone has an amazing week – catch us on Insta! xo

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!Continue Reading
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.
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.Continue Reading
We love the fun feel of tassel earrings, and they’re EVERYWHERE right now. Here are our favorites, all under $50!
My tassel earrings from Sole Statesboro are only $16. They also come in pink and white. You can’t buy them online (boo!), but you can call 912-764-7463 to order. Mention secret code GLITTER and get 10% off!
These Larissa earrings are super similar to mine. They also come in blue.
I love the dressier feel of these “Mia” earrings. They also come in white!
These Love’s Affect earrings come in tons of colors, including beige, grey, blue/green, pink, and coral. I’m ordering the coral as soon as I hit “publish” on this post!
This simple pair by Madewell also comes in dreamy peach and recycled blue.
These Vanessa Mooney “The Astrid” tassels come in tons of colors. They’re a little pricier…but so much impact!
Are you wearing tassels this spring? Tag us in your pics on Instagram – we’d love to see! xo
Is it the weekend yet?
In my quest to spend some quality time with both of my boys, I’ve been taking them (separately, because I’m not a crazy person) to brunch on Saturdays. Mama time for them and a mimosa for me – everybody wins! My no-fail brunch look includes this adorable ruffle top (also comes in black!), my trusty Spanx denim leggings (which always fit no matter how many crepes I eat!) and my favorite Madewell denim jacket, because the temps have been varying wildly down here…and what’s the point of brunch if you can’t sit outside? We also like to do a little walking around downtown afterwards, so I always wear wedges. These Toms watercolor wedges are my current favorite.
Spanx leggings and Toms wedges are super comfy – ideal for chasing two rambunctious little ones. I love the fit of this denim jacket, but if you’re looking for something more oversized, this Topshop denim jacket offers a LOT of style at a great price.

My March Birchbox arrived last week, and I must say it was one of my favorites to date. I was beyond excited to try every product. Let’s get down to it, shall we?
1. Macadamia Natural Oil™ Deep Repair Masque: This product is *perfect* for thick, long hair like mine. Smells great and left my hair feeling silky smooth after one use. Recommend.
2. Macadamia Natural Oil™ Healing Oil Treatment: Want to cut your drying time and have soft, shiny hair? This product is for you! Mix with the Repair masque for ever more amazing results.
3. Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board: It is well-documented that L and I are pretty obsessed with doing our nails, so you can image how psyched I was to see this super cute emery board in my box! Every girl needs a “purse file.”
4. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow: Y’all. I’ve sampled several BB creams since they became a trend, and I can honestly say this is the best. Goes on weightless and smooth, and leaves you with flawless skin. Just try it.
5. Stella Cadente Miss Me Discrete? Eau de Toilette: This fresh-out-of-the-shower scent is really nice, but I wish it lasted longer.
6. Supergoop!® Endless Summer SPF 30+ Everyday UV Lotion: I had heard *great* things about Supergoop!, so I was uber-excited when it showed up in my Birchbox. The non-greasy formula has a high degree of photo-stability, which means that it can withstand strong solar rays. This is what I NEED for long days on the lake.
So tell us…what was in your Birchbox this month!? Tweet or Instagram us at @glitter_blog_xo.
