outfit roundup 6.5.17

Happy MONDAY – welcome to a five-day week. Yay? I’m teaching Vacation Bible School all this week, so you may not see me much…but Jennifer is ready with lots of cute Insta posts! In the meantime, here’s a look back at our week…

Family Swimsuit Look The Glitter Life
jennifer’s swim top + bottom + sunnies // james’ swim trunks + rash guard

Jennifer and Jay celebrated Baby James’ first birthday last weekend. Jennifer has promised to share party details soon, but in the meantime you can check out her swim look: one-shoulder top // bottom // sunnies // similar sunnies.

Comfy Shorts Look The Glitter Life
striped tee // pull-on shorts // vegan suede baseball hat

Tuesday and Wednesday were a bit of a struggle. Vacations are nice, but there’s so much to do when you return to the real world! Also, RAIN. My Wednesday look says it all: comfy basics (my fave striped tee and these cute pull-on Madewell shorts) + coffee + trusty ball cap. My hat is from Dish comes in tons of colors – this one from Kohl’s is similar.

Striped Maxi The Glitter Life
the cutest maxi

Target always has a great selection of summer maxis, and this year is no different. Our picks: this striped one and this floral one. Both are under $30!

Brunch Table Setting The Glitter Life
stemless champs flutes // water carafe // cake stand // serving bowl // placemat // gold flatware // 16-piece place setting

Brunch is the most important meal of the day, so when Jennifer’s al fresco Sunday brunch was rained out yesterday, she just moved it inside. Honestly, I would have eaten outside in the rain if it meant using this amazing table setting! Palm print and gold flatware and beaded plates, oh my.

Swimsuit Cover Look The Glitter Life
strapless swim top // swim bottom // tassel earrings // sunnies

So, something exciting happened last week – my boys and I were on the cover of Moments Magazine! We had a blast shooting the cover, even though it was a challenge to get both boys to look in the same direction at the same time – witness my death-grip on Ed. I was flattered to be featured, and Joe and I are grateful for the opportunity to share our family’s story. You can read the article via ISSU here.

I’m wearing my favorite bandeau swim top from Target (shop both pieces here), tassel earrings (see more of our fave tassel earrings here) and Toms Memphis sunglasses. The boys’ matching red Prodoh shorts are from local Statesboro store Bellies, Babies and Ballerinas.

Hope everyone has an amazing week – catch us on Insta! xo

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.

perfect summer look.

Jennifer and I have never been so glad to see Friday. We’ve both been swamped with work, travel and those end-of-the-school-year obligations that seem to snowball around this time. I’m  dreaming of a little beach escape this weekend – if I can actually pull it off, and here’s what I’ll be wearing.

Summer Look The Glitter Life
shop this look

Striped Tee // Madewell makes the best tees, and this striped one rings all my bells. It’s cropped but not TOO cropped, know what I’m sayin’?

Denim Cut-Offs // Levi’s Wedgie Denim Shorts have caused quite a stir this spring. I’m happy to report that they don’t give you an actual wedgie. The high-waisted fit goes perfectly with a cropped tee (see above).

Espadrilles // Jennifer and I can’t get enough slides right now. I picked up this faux-suede pair at Forever 21 in Atlanta last week, and I’ve been wearing them non-stop. They’re under $20, so no big if they get a little sandy at the beach.

Add your favorite sunnies, bikini (I love this classic one in white from Target) and this beach tote (it’s on sale for $29!), and you’re ready to de-stress from the week. Cheers to the weekend! xo

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!).

Striped One-Shoulder Top
you guys loved this $35 one-shoulder top from Nordstrom. it’s been restocked in all sizes!

eight sixty dress + heels + hat + necklace: social (call 912.681.7008 to order) // bag (available here) + cuff (no longer available): tory burch. photos by chelsey navin.

Our take on Kentucky Derby style: a preppy striped dress paired with a pastel statement necklace (although pearls are perfectly appropriate, too), a simple (but huge) hat, and a bright bag (to hold our binoculars and a pair of flats).
