Have you guys recovered from the long weekend? Ours was glorious…but Tuesday hit us like a ton of Monday-sized bricks. After struggling yesterday, we’re back in the game today. We put a few items to the test last week – read on for the deets.

Striped Button Down The Glitter Life
vegas-bound

Jennifer and Jay traveled to Vegas last week, and as you probably know that East Coast-to-almost-West Coast flight is BRUTAL. A cocktail and this H&M comfy striped button-down (paired with Blank NYC white denim – of course) made the flight a little more bearable. The top comes in a few more colors/prints!

Pool Look The Glitter Life
bikini top // bottom // cover-up // sandals

Poolside, Jennifer mixed high (classic Jack Rogers sandals – there’s also a wedge version) with a sweet little scalloped bikini top and bottom from Target and a palm print over-up from Old Navy. That’s our style – mixing cute, inexpensive pieces with our fave classic stand-bys.

Cold Shoulder Top The Glitter Life
cold-shoulder top // black denim leggings // tassel ankle-wrap wedges

Back in Georgia, baby Joe graduated from kindergarten! Yes, I’m still going to refer to him “Baby Joe”. And yes, I wore my comfiest basics because sitting on gymnasium bleachers for an hour is no joke. This BCBGeneration cold-shoulder top (re-stocked in all sizes!!), Spanx black denim leggings (also seen here, and virtually once a week), and Coconuts by Matisse ankle-wrap wedges have been on repeat since spring.

Striped Swim Look The Glitter Life
bikini top // bottom // sunblock

The Joes and I didn’t go ANYWHERE for Memorial Day weekend, and it was magical. Sometimes relaxing at home is the best way to recharge. We did have a few friends over for a pool party Saturday night, and this striped bikini top and bottom from Target got a lot of compliments. As I’m writing this post, all sizes are still available! I love how the top feels so secure, and it’s true to size. The bottoms are not as cheeky as most styles right now – I probably could have sized down, but with two kids…better safe than sorry. Also, have you guys tried this SPF 30 Brush On Block yet? It’s a truly genius product – you just twist the brush and a translucent SPF powder materializes on the brush. No greasy sunscreen lotion getting in your eyes, no kids coughing exaggeratedly “ughhhhh it’s in my mouth!!!!” as you spray them. Wait, are mine are the only ones that do that? Seriously, try it.

Flamingo Float
the best $39 you will spend this summer

This flamingo pool float is EVERYTHING. I *hate* floats that don’t keep you above water – if I wanted to get wet, I would SWIM. -_- This giant pink beauty keeps me suspended above the water and provides plenty of room to relax. I do recommend using an air compressor or similar-ish thingy (idk what they’re called, I’m not a scientist) to inflate it. Don’t ask me how I know.

Off Shoulder Striped Top
happy memorial day!

On Memorial Day, Jennifer sipped a few margs in this adorable striped off-shoulder top. It comes in petite AND tall and – unbelievably! – it’s under $20. You’ll have plenty of money left over for queso.

We’ve got tons of cute stuff planned for the next few weeks. Follow along on Instagram and tag us in your own pics!

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.

brunch, please.

Is it the weekend yet?

Brunch Look The Glitter Life
no time to stand still for a photo – gotta get to brunch!

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.

Brunch Look The Glitter Life
top // leggings // jacket 

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.

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!).

and we’re back!

Um, hi? It’s been awhile…we’ve been BUSY (see: Baby Ed and Baby James). We’ve got a few things cooking right now, including a revamp of our website. In the meantime, we’re working on posting more regularly.

Sorel Boots The Glitter Life
don’t be fooled by this pic. the azaleas are blooming…but it’s 33 degrees. sorel boots // blank nyc skinnies // tory burch polo (old, but you can find a white one here) // utility jacket (similar) // toms shades

Supposedly it’s spring…but it’s f-f-freezing in Georgia this week! Not great for those of us wanting to bust out our new spring stuff. The upside is that we’re getting more wear out of our winter pieces, like these amazing Sorel “Cate the Great” boots (they have a hidden wedge heel – so comfy). View all the outfit details here. Or follow us on Insta and use the Emoticode app (what, you don’t have it already?) to view our outfit details in an easy-to-shop format.
