rule the pool.

EXCITING NEWS! We’re off to Atlanta Market to scoop the best fall/winter trends for Sole and Dish. Don’t tell anyone, but afterwards we’re sneaking off to Lake Oconee for a quick girls’ getaway. No agenda except…pool time. Read on for our pool-side must-haves.

 

The Glitter Life Pool Essentials

1 // Kitschy pool float? Check. Love this flamingo float by Urban Outfitters.

2 // Mirrored Sunglasses

3 // Ditch your usual flip-flops for glam gold gladiators.

4 // We’re big fans of wearing kimonos as cover-ups. This black one by BCBGeneration goes with everything.

5 // Go for a graphic bikini like this one that features bust-flattering underwire and tan-enhancing neon.

6 // We cannot resist this adorable Kate Spade pineapple pool tote.

7 // We stock these Bliss lipglosses by the dozen.

friday five: links we love.

Can we just say we are READY for the weekend? Rumor has it the weather’s going to be beautiful. J is headed to Lake Oconee; L is ready for some one-on-one time (and a few decorating projects) with Baby Joe. Here are five links we’re loving today!

Link Love
five things to try/buy this weekend.

1. Best Nail Polish Colors for Spring 2015. Weekends are for painting your nails, and this “best of” list will give you plenty of inspiration. In case you’re wondering (and we know you are), at the moment J’s nails are Essie Lilacism and L’s nails are Essie Tart Deco, an old fave that feels fresh right now.

2. Swim Sale. Shop our fave swimwear brands at Dish Boutique this weekend and take 20% off your order using the secret code SWIM15. We’re dying for the printed L*Space Chloe Wrap Top.

3. Barefoot Workout. If the mention of swimsuit shopping just gave you a panic attack, check out this genius barefoot workout. Sure, you can do it on the beach (maybe awkward)…but also in your backyard, in your living room, etc. We’re both going to do this a few times this weekend.

4. Styling Tricks for Your Home. L and Baby Joe are planning to do some sprucing up around the house this weekend. We loved this list of 11 tricks from Domaine that will make your home look (more) like a magazine.

5. Smores Bites. Our weekends are not complete without a sweet treat. J made these S’mores Bites by the First Year last night to take to the lake. Full disclosure: they did not turn out EXACTLY like the pic…but they sure were tasty. Practice makes perfect, right?

our favorite wedges.

Recently our sweet friend Corinna was inquiring about our favorite spring/summer wedges. We compiled this list for her (ranging from boho to classic to dressy) and wanted to share it with you, too!

NOTE: The original title of this post was Wedges Wednesday. Did anyone else’s Wednesday spiral out of control?

 

1. Shop Social Dish “Wisdom” Wedges. Wear these platform boho beauties with bell bottoms and maxi dresses. And they’re only $39. Hellow!

Shop Social Dish Wisdom Wedge
feelin’ groovy.

2. Halogen “Clarette” Wedge Sandal. This super-versatile sandal (skews classic, not boho) can be paired with pretty much anything in your closet. Corinna actually ended up choosing these!

The Glitter Life Halogen Clarette Wedge Sandal
neutral suede + stacked heel = perfection.

3. Shop Social Dish “Daff” Wedge. L would call this a “shootie” wedge. We’d pair these taller, chunkier wedges with dark or distressed skinnies and a linen blazer for a dressier look.

Shop Social Dish Daff Wedge
L’s go-to.

4. Jack Rogers Marbella Mid Wedge. Every Southern girl needs a pair of Jack Rogers, and these metallic not-too-high wedges go beautifully with tailored shorts and summer dresses. SPECIAL OFFER for you guys: Order these from Sole Statesboro and get 20% off!

The Glitter Life Marbella Mid Wedge
available at Sole Statesboro. call 912-871-3989 to order.

5. MICHAEL Michael Kors “Josephine” Wedges. If we had to pick ONE wedge to wear all spring/summer, with everrrrrrrything, it might be these MICHAEL Michael Kors wedges. We love the strap (buckle, not velcro), the versatile light tan color and the wooden platform.

could these get any more perfect? yes. they’re on sale.

Stay tuned for pics from our recent trip to NYC!

sneak peek: pb weddings photo shoot.

It was just a normal Tuesday…and then our friend Christy, the super talented owner of Colonial House of Flowers, asked Dish to join in on her collaboration with Pottery Barn Weddings. Also in on the fun were our friends (and former Shop Social Dish girls!) Kristin and Anna of Alva & Austrie. What could be more fun? We had to say yes!

We rounded up our favorite model Maggie and headed over to a beautiful home in Statesboro for the shoot. We were amazed at what the girls at Colonial House and A+A had achieved – a welcoming, spring-y bridal shower in the middle of January (complete with hand-lettered banners, flower crowns, and more fresh flowers than we’ve ever seen this time of year). There was a REAL photographer, of course (the adorable and amazing Izzy Hudgins) and we can’t wait to show you those pictures. But until the official post is up, check our behind-the-scenes pics.

Welcome one, welcome all

Basket of Flowers
wine + a basket of flowers in the middle of winter? don’t mind if we do!
Instagram Photos

We can’t wait to show you the professional pics – stay tuned!
