friday five | loves.

YAY for the weekend. It’s actually sunny today – we’re crossing our fingers this lasts for a few days. Here’s what we’re loving right now!

1. Nude Lip. After a winter of bright red lips, we’re really feeling this pared down nude lip. Now, if we can just get a tan…

2. Homemade Pizza. L and Joe made this delicious Spinach Artichoke Pizza (sans artichokes – forgot them at the store!) this week, and it’s probably making a reappearance on Sunday night. It’s super easy, and we love the combination of flavors. Even Baby Joe gobbled it up.

3. Mimosa caddy. Making mimosa caddies is tops on our spring to-do list because we love champagne, we love pink, and we love DIY. And just because.

4. ASOS Floral Midi Skirt. J’s wearing this adorable floral midi to brunch in NYC during her bach party. Stay tuned for details!

5. Good read. We love this article about finding your style when you hit 30.

Date Night 1

friday five: date night outfits.

Well, hello Friday! We’ve been waiting for you…

J is in Greensboro doing a tasting for her upcoming wedding, and L is on the road to Atlanta for Apparel Market. Be sure to check out our IG (@glitter_blog_xo and @shopsocialdish) tomorrow for spring fashion sneak peeks! In the meantime (and in the spirit of Friday) we’re highlighting five date night outfits we’re really feeling right now.

Date Night 1
easy, breezy – ripped skinnies (try these from dish) + slouchy tee + cardigan.
Date Night 2
we love a dark floral this time of year. add a moto jacket (like this one from dish) and tights and you’re good to go.
Date Night 3
flirty crop top + ladylike midi = romance.
Date Night 4
file this away for spring. sequined shorts + boyfriend shirt + clutch.
Date Night 5
love this oversized shirt and leopard clutch…but we’d swap the black skinnies for faux leather leggings (like these). perfect hair doesn’t hurt, either.

View more outfit ideas on our Date Night Pinterest Board. Have a great weekend!

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!
