Tory Burch

what we’ve been wearing.

GOODNESS, you guys. I know I begin every post this way…but we have had a LOT going on. It’s hard for a girl to find the time to post! On top of our usual work and family commitments, Jennifer and I spent last weekend in Atlanta, buying fall inventory for Sole and Dish, taste-testing tacos and perfecting our frose recipe. Here’s a look at the styles and products we’ve been loving lately…

The Glitter Life Rainy Day Look
my go-to summer rainy day outfit

It feels like it has been raining for weeks, and there is no end in sight. Humid temperatures mean I’m pairing my trusty Hunter boots with my favorite Free People cut-offs and this $13 striped tank (which I also bought in solid white and olive because the fit is just so perfect).

The Glitter ife Tassel Earrings
so fun!

Looking to add a pop of color to your outfit? Jennifer’s SUGARFIX by BaubleBar beaded tassel earrings are only $12 and come in tons of colors.

The Glitter Life Cheetah Gladiators
my new favorite sandals

These gladiator sandals are one of my favorite finds this summer. They’re so comfy and the print is adorable. Plus they’re on sale right now for under $30!

The Glitter Life Jennifer Laura
reunited and on our way to dinner in the A

Last Friday, Jennifer and I celebrated National Rose Eve (that’s a thing, I promise) by going to Superica in some of our favorite items. No, we did not dress alike on purpose. Our tops are sold out, but you can still shop our denim and our totes. On Jennifer: Blank NYC white denim (these run small, so size up!) // Louis Vuitton tote. On me: Spanx black denim // Tory Burch tote.

The Glitter Life Rose Tote

Next morning we headed to AmericasMart to buy some fall pretties for my boutiques Sole and Dish. In honor of National Rose Day (I told you, it’s a real thing), I schlepped all my stuff in this Old Navy tote. Oh, and now it’s on sale for $8. You’ll spend more on your bottle of rose!

The Glitter Life Sleep Shorts
comfy and cozy in my home away from home

Great minds think alike…we both bought these fun sleep shorts and wore them Saturday night. UNPLANNED. I went preppy with pink with green leopards, and Jennifer stuck with her siganture palm print. Both prints are still available in all sizes.

The Glitter Life Business Casual
powering through the week in one of my favorite looks

I’ve been crazy busy playing catch-up, and I always seem to work better when I’m dressed for battle. This combo is my go-to: BCBGeneration blazer (also comes in white, paired with that Old Navy tank from up top, in white) // Blank NYC skinnies // suede heels (these are similar, and these are the dream version of mine). My clutch is sold out, but this BP one at Nordstrom is super similar, under $50 and ships free!

Follow along and share your outfits with us on Instagram @glitter_blog_xo. Happy hump day, everyone!

PS – If this crazy summer weather is wreaking havoc on your skin, you should try Jennifer’s favorite Kate Somerville products. Click thie photo to shop them all!

outfit roundup | 5.15

It’s MONDAY, and there’s so much to smile about! We had a restful Mother’s Day weekend, the I-85 bridge has been re-opened and Jennier’s precious baby James turns ONE. We’ll have deets on his birthday party soon…but in the meantime, let’s prolong going back to the real world by doing a little summer shopping. Click each photo to shop some of our favorite things!

Denim Shorts Look The Glitter Life
jennifer’s fave denim shorts + fringe sandals

Jennifer posted these H&M scallop denim shorts and Steve Madden sandals, and y’all went nuts. In fact, both are now sold out (congrats to those of you who moved fast!), but check out these super-similar fringe sandals from Sole Society. They’re available in three colors and are under $80!

Scallop Bikini Top The Glitter Life
the most flattering bikini top ever

When it comes to swimwear, Target just gets us. They always have adorable styles at great prices. Jennifer loves this pull-over scalloped triangle top. We love that there are two different bottom options: hipster and cheeky.

Summer Look The Glitter Life
our go-to summer look

We posted this look on Friday, and you guys loved it! I can’t get enough striped tees, and this one by Madewell is my new favorite. These high-waist denim shorts (available at Nordstrom) and faux-suede espadrilles (less than $20 you guys!) have been on repeat lately.

Guac Tank The Glitter Life
my weekend uniform

I’ve been wearing this BCBGeneration graphic tank and Spanx camo leggings pretty much every weekend. Both are available at Sole in Statesboro (tank and leggings // take 10% off your order using promo code GLITTER, plus shipping is free!), or you can click the photo to shop.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
the bag that changed my life

I posted about the Tory Burch York Buckle Tote a few days ago, and if you guys missed it you can check out the post here. This bag is genius and has truly changed my life – I highly recommend it for busy, multi-tasking ladies. Details for the rest of the outfit: Spanx denim leggings (seriously the BEST) // After Market babydoll top // Toms mules.

We’ve got a busy week ahead – follow along on Instagram!

the bag that changed my life.

You guys…

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
this is the bag that changed my life.

I have struggled with a two-bag system for years. I have always carried a purse (for all the usual purse things) as well as a “work bag” for my laptop, notebook, folders, phone charger, etc. It wasn’t that I hadn’t tried to find a bag that could do it all…I just couldn’t find one. Sure, I’ve had gigantic purses that fit my laptop, but they were always unstructured bags without compartments. In other words, giant BLACK HOLES in which to lose all my stuff. I could frequently be found dumping the contents of my bag out onto the floor, searching for something random like a mini-stapler. Grrrrrrrr.

And there are certainly plenty of business-y satchels out there…but I have never found one that I didn’t think screamed LAPTOP BAG. I wanted something big enough for my laptop that still looked like a handbag. I wanted it all.

And then I FOUND IT.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
so happyyyyyyyyy

The Tory Burch York Buckle Tote. Full disclosure, Jennifer also has this tote. She had it first! I am totally copying her. I was having the hardest time finding a bag that checked all my boxes, and she suggested this one. What took me so long to buy it? No idea. But I’m so glad I did.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
everything i need to work in a hotel lobby – and I’m currently doing just that – is in this bag.

This York Buckle Tote comes in red, black and navy (shown).

Tory Burch York Buckle Bag The Glitter Life
inside zipper pocket holds my laptop, full-size notebook and various folders

The best part about this bag is the pockets. There are FOUR interior slip pockets (for phone, keys, sunglasses and pens. I have a lot of pens.). In addition, there’s a side zipper compartment where I keep random stuff (hairbrush, etc). The crowning achivement is the interior zipper pocket that divides the bag into two sections. This interior zipper pocket is large enough to hold my laptop, my favorite Sugar Paper Notebook (I use one every two-three months instead of a planner) and various folders. People make fun of my folders, but when you work on-the-go a lot (and I do!), you need access to all your papers like school forms, invoices, etc. My Tory Burch make-up bag (Jennifer gave me this little baby years ago and it has served me so well – what we can say, we’re brand-loyal!) and HOBO wallet (this one is super similar) fit neatly on one side, and I keep my phone and laptop chargers on the other.

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
sunglasses, eyeglasses, wallet, make-up bag, keys

If I seem weirdly excited about this bag, it’s because I’ve spent years digging through two bags in frustration, struggling to find my stuff. I highly recommend this tote for anyone who frequently works out of town (me), in coffee shops (me, again) or in any random place (me, me, me). Happy Thursday!

outfit inspo: golf tournament attire

Happy Friday! Today we’ve got golf tournament attire on the brain. Next week is Masters Week, and we’re always excited for this storied tournament in our shared home town of Augusta. Of course, the big question is always…WHAT ARE WE WEARING? It’s important to be respectful of golf tradition, but – of course – we also want to be comfy and cute. We love a skort or skinnies paired with a simple polo or shell. And unless you plan to sit in the clubhouse all day (come on, don’t do that!), comfy kicks, oversized sunnies and a cross-body bag are key. Here are our two favorite looks.

Golf Tournament Outfit The Glitte Life

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.

party post: l’s baby shower.

L:

J and three sweet friends threw the most amazing baby shower for Baby Ed and me at Forest Heights Country Club in Statesboro. You may have seen a few pics on Instagram. These are a few more of our favorites! We’ll start from the beginning…

Our favorite girls at Colonial House of Flowers set the mood with this gorgeous centerpiece. See more of their work here and here.

Centerpiece
we love every single thing the girls at colonial house of flowers come up with.

I was so glad my mom was able to make the trip. We all missed my mother-in-law, who was (smartly) cruising in cooler temps.

Joe + Laura + Jan
big brother-to-be joe, my mom jan and me. our coordinating lilly pulitzer outfits were unplanned.

My favorite surprise of the day was…a FLOWER CROWN! I have never been so excited (or so glad that I didn’t do my hair in a top-knot). I had a really hard time taking it off at the end of the day brunch.

Laura + Jennifer + Kate
from left: jennifer, me, kate.

I was so excited and flattered that three of the hostesses were repping my stores! From left: Christa is wearing a skirt from Social Statesboro and Jack Rogers “Georgica” sandals from Sole Statesboro. J’s wearing an ASOS gypsy dress and fringe booties from Lulu’s (sold out, similar here). I’m wearing a vintage Lilly Pulitzer dress (a hand-me-down from my mom – I actually wore this five years ago to a baby shower for Joe!) and Tory Burch heels (incredibly old, also seen here). Kate’s wearing a Love Poppy leather tassel necklace from Sole Statesboro. Niki’s wearing Spanx cropped denim leggings (they’re also a favorite of mine), Jack Rogers “Lauren” sandals and a Sneak Peek top, all from Sole Statesboro.

Laura + Hostesses
photo op before the guests arrived…

Everyone who knows me knows I live for brunch. I was so happy to see quiche and mini-pancakes on the menu!

blah
i crushed two *big* pieces of quiche before the brunch was over.
blah
a little cheese, a little fruit…
Polka Dot Straws
i heart printed straws.

Jennifer brought cupcakes from the Atlanta outpost of Georgetown Cupcake. I am obsessed with peanut butter, so she set aside one of those just for me. #truefriend The “E” flags are from Etsy.

Georgetown Cupcakes
dry ice may or may not have been involved in the transport of these beauties from atlanta.

I had the cutest little helpers opening gifts: Joe and his BBFL Leo.

Laura + Joe + Leo
these two were so excited to open all the presents!
Opening Gifts
joe is going to be a great big brother.
Christa + Jennifer
oh hi, christa and jennifer!
Valerie + Shellie
my friend Val (left) is exactly two weeks ahead of me…she’s due any day now!
Joe Cupcake
this was joe’s SECOND red velvet cupcake of the morning.

Kate arranged these simple and cute rock candy favors. Joe was fascinated with these…and then he really flipped when he realized it was actual CANDY.

Rock Candy Favors
a little something sweet for guests to take home.
Hostess Gifts
gifts for the hostesses with the mostestes.

Each hostess received a small succulent in mercury glass from Colonial House.

Hostess Gifts
succulents are my jam. because i kill pretty much every other plant.

Post-shower, Joe and I hung out in Ed’s new nursery. He told me “Mom, that was a GREAT PARTY.”…and I totally agree. I was overwhelmed at how beautiful everything was, and how these four friends nailed all of my favorite things. Baby Ed and I are so lucky to have four such incredible women in our lives.

what we wore: wedding style.

YOU GUYS. It happened. J got married last weekend! Despite less-than-ideal weather, it was a beautiful, fun-filled weekend. We hope you shared in the journey via Instagram; if you didn’t, check out #JJB2015 for pics. We’ll be sharing some behind the scenes details with you soon! In the meantime…

Obviously THE DRESS is the biggest part of any bride’s wedding wardrobe style, but there are other opportunities to showcase your style during the wedding weekend. Because we kinda want to relive the last 72 hours, we thought we’d share our wedding style with you.

FRIDAY MORNING

{THE EVENT}: Lisa Baker and Sue Baker hosted a gorg champagne brunch on Friday morning at the Ritz Carlton Lodge for the bridal party. The vibe was casual and fun.

{THE BRIDE}: J chose a lace-back beauty from Urban Outfitters. So. Many. Compliments.

The Glitter Life What We Wore
dress: urban outfitters.

{THE MATRON OF HONOR}: L chose a 3/4 sleeve print silk mini dress by Juicy Couture paired with “Tanya” high- heel sandals by Tory Burch. This dress has been sold out for a while (years, actually!), but you can view similar in-stock dresses here.

FRIDAY EVENING

{THE EVENT}: Following the wedding rehearsal, everyone gathered at the President’s House at the Ritz Carlton for a casual BBQ dinner hosted by the Baker family. A cocktail reception for out of town guests kicked off at 8pm.

{THE BRIDE}: J chose a sweet midi-length number with an open back. She looked absolutely beautiful…but we did have a few bra issues. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed by some bandaids, Fashion Tape and manicure scissors, though!

The Glitter Life WWW
dress: lulus. find similar styles here.

{THE MATRON OF HONOR}: L chose this long-sleeve black BCBGeneration chiffon overlay dress, sans tights. It’s sold out on Shop Social Dish, but it’s in stock AND ON SALE here. This basic with-a-twist will become your go-to LBD – it works for all seasons!

The Glitter Life BCBGeneration Dress
dress: bcbgeneration.
