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?

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.

skin matters.

Sunday Riley

When I was pregnant, my skin was absolutely terrible. There was nothing I could do to control it. Hormones running wild = bad skin for Jennifer.

After James was born, things started to get back to normal and I was ready to rehab my skin with new products. I started reading up on my skincare options and saw SO many recommendations for Sunday Riley! I scooped this sample pack and decided to give them a whirl.

You guys. Blown away. From the first time I used each product, I saw instant results. My skin was clearer and smoother. With continued use, I can honestly say I have had minimal breakouts which is a vast change from before.

My skin is on the drier side and I felt like I needed a little something extra, so I scooped the Juno face oil and needless to say, it did not disappoint. I use it every morning. FULL DISCLOSURE: It smells like olive oil. But it works, so what do you do.

See below to shop the products above! Next on my Sunday Riley shopping list… the C.E.O protect and repair moisturizer!
