Spring

spring party prep.

Hello, spring! After two weeks of unseasonably freezing temps, it’s beginning to warm up again. The weather has us in the mood to entertain, so we’re sharing our spring party essentials today. Because who’s not in the mood to throw a little party at home?

sparkling glassware and blue and white plates

We like to serve wine in short old-fashioned glasses, like these and these. Colorful plates (mine are Blue Italian Spode Dinnerware) perfectly complement spring’s colorful blooms.

Ice down beer and wine in a blue and white planter. Mine is on loan (permanently? eek) from my mother-in-law, but this one is super similar.

colorful cocktail napkins // well-loved tray

Display glassware and cocktail napkins (these and these from H&M are adorable and stupid cheap) on a pewter tray. I received this one as a wedding gift almost twelve years ago – it’s still available on Wayfair! – and we also like this simple one. A reptile tray would add sophisticated texture to a lacquered table, and this cute little pineapple tray is perfect for a cheeseball and crackers.

I’ve been using a basic acrylic ice bucket forever. This one by Kate Spade would be a nice upgrade! I’d also love this gold corkscrew (Mother’s Day is coming up…right?).

these monogrammed drink stirrers by entertaining maven Emily McCarthy were a gift from Jennifer

St Patrick's Day Outfit

Speaking of tonight, Jennifer, Jay and baby James are on their way to Statesboro as we speak. We’re all excited for the Schenkel Invitational Golf Tournament this weekend, which is happening right next door. We’ll be taking pics (hopefully less grainy than the above – the photo struggle is real!), so follow us on Insta to get in on the fun. Happy Friday, and try not to get pinched!

easter weekend style.

It finally feels like SPRING! Whether you’re headed to a golf tournament (J), hosting an egg hunt (L) or just relaxing with family, this beautiful weather calls for fresh spring threads. These are our top five looks for the next 48 hours.

1. Sophisticated Simplicty. Church and brunch with the family calls for a simple shape in a pretty pastel. Add a metallic clutch and sandals.

The Glitter Life Easter
this one sold out, but you can find tons of other options here.

2. Classic with a Twist. Repurpose your favorite white button-down by adding a pastel midi skirt and ladylike heels.

The Glitter Life Easter
buy a classic white button down here.

3. Just Add Flowers. Spring-ify your favorite dark skinnies with a lightweight floral kimono and bright heels. This look is perfect for meeting up with friends for lunch on Saturday. Check out more casual outfit ideas here.

4. Prints Charming. This playful look works beautifully for a fancy brunch or Easter celebration. Tone down the pattern with a kitten heel or even a cute flat. Bonus points: add a low bun and bright pink lip.

5. Hey, Shorty. We DIE for short sets. Love this patterned one, or you can keep it simple in all-white. Perfect for an afternoon shopping or walking the golf course. Shorts call for a great tan – fake one with our helpful hints!

The Glitter Life Easter

Whatever your plans, we hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

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.

The Glitter Life Michael Kors Wedge
could these get any more perfect? yes. they’re on sale.

Stay tuned for pics from our recent trip to NYC!

We recently spent a cold, winter day immersed in spring styles at Atlanta Market. Read on for our behind-the-scenes look at S/S 15!

Jenny + Emily + Laura
mamie ruth never disappoints. designer Emily Bargeron (pictured) always stays true to her boho roots and creates unique pieces that our Dish customers love. we can’t wait for Emily to visit us on March 11 for a Mamie trunk show!
Twi Piece Set
two-piece sets are going to be EVERYWHERE this spring. we picked up a few for Social.
HOBO Spring Bags
at HOBO, we stocked up on our favorite styles and picked up a few newbies we think are destined to be classics. we especially loved the ivory snake pattern and ordered it in a few styles (okay, every style).
BCBGeneration Spring
we chose pretty poppy as the accent color in our first spring BCBGeneration delivery.
Mamie Ruth Leather Bag
this genius Mamie Ruth recycled leather bag (made from leather fragments) is both green AND inexpensive. plus, each one is totally unique. we ordered a bunch for Dish.
