travel blog | asheville, north carolina.

Two weeks ago, I made a quick  jaunt to the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina for m’girl Maggie’s wedding. Needless to say, a good time was had by ALL. Let me break it down for you:

Friday-

I linked up with my BFF, Annie, and her husband, Alex, for dinner at The Nightbell. We basically tried one of everything and it was phenomenal.

not your typical deviled egg… corn sabayon, sunburst smoked trout gravlax, pimenton.
a meal out is not complete without steak. in our opinion.
i know. we’re all obsessed with annie’s bodysuit. unfortunately, for all of us, it isn’t online. HOWEVER, here is my jumpsuit and jacket.

Saturday-

Annie and I took in the sights of Asheville including the biggest general store we’ve ever encountered, Mast. A few sights along the way:

coffee on a bus. casual.
many fall sights.
while wearing this sweater we’re all obsessed with.

THEN THERE WAS THE MAIN EVENT #TALFOUNDTHEDUNN

THE BRIDE (similar wedding guest dresses here and here and here)
MY GIRLS
THERE WERE DONUTS.
AND CHAMPAGNE.

It’s like you were there right?

black + white 🖤

Over the past few years, a black, leather moto jacket has always been on my shopping list and I never pulled the trigger… until now!

This Blank NYC beauty is perfection (and under $100…) The gold hardware is probably what sold me. Why is that so hard to find? I digress.

The jacket goes with everything. Dress it up with a skirt and heels or down with distressed denim and sneaks. Scoop your very own before it sells out and scroll to the bottom to shop the whole look!

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.

Easter The Glitter Life
gingham shorttall

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!

outfit roundup.

We’ve got a Masters hangover (please tell us you guys watched – it was incredible!) and can’t really deal with Monday yet, so let’s review our looks from last week. You guys showed us a  lot of love on Insta – thanks so much!!

Cold Shoulder Striped Dress The Glitter Life
I wore this cold-shoulder knit French Connection dress (now on sale at Nordstrom!) and my favorite Jack Rogers sandals to a family Easter egg hunt last weekend. this look is going to get a lot more wear this spring. 
spring weddings are upon us, and this scalloped, one-shoulder number (under $100!) is your new go-to LBD.
Cold Shoulder Top The Glitter Life
love this striped cold shoulder top (now under $60 on sale!) paired with coral high-waist shorts (under $30). this nail color (Blue Away by Sally Hansen) is my spring-go to – you’ll love the super-thick brush. it covers way better than a lot of more expensive brands.
Bloomingdale's Sale The Glitter Life
jennifer hit the Bloomingdale’s sale on Thursday and had amazing luck. our favorite combo: this one-shoulder top paired with this asymmetrical striped skirt.
Rainy Day Look The Glitter Life
if i’m wearing a baseball hat you know things are serious. the threat of severe weather on wednesday meant I pulled out my favorite hunter boots (this adorable light blue pair is on sale, which legit never happens!) and trusty Blank NYC distressed skinnies. my J Crew striped tee is now on sale for under $30 – score!

My faux-suede baseball cap is from my boutique Dish and comes in tons of colors. You can order it here (psssst use discount code GLITTER at checkout and get 10% off your entire order!).

Tag us in your outfits on Instagram – we’d love to see what you’re wearing! Have a great week! xo
