what we wore

Have you guys recovered from the long weekend? Ours was glorious…but Tuesday hit us like a ton of Monday-sized bricks. After struggling yesterday, we’re back in the game today. We put a few items to the test last week – read on for the deets.

Striped Button Down The Glitter Life
vegas-bound

Jennifer and Jay traveled to Vegas last week, and as you probably know that East Coast-to-almost-West Coast flight is BRUTAL. A cocktail and this H&M comfy striped button-down (paired with Blank NYC white denim – of course) made the flight a little more bearable. The top comes in a few more colors/prints!

Pool Look The Glitter Life

Poolside, Jennifer mixed high (classic Jack Rogers sandals – there’s also a wedge version) with a sweet little scalloped bikini top and bottom from Target and a palm print over-up from Old Navy. That’s our style – mixing cute, inexpensive pieces with our fave classic stand-bys.

Cold Shoulder Top The Glitter Life

Back in Georgia, baby Joe graduated from kindergarten! Yes, I’m still going to refer to him “Baby Joe”. And yes, I wore my comfiest basics because sitting on gymnasium bleachers for an hour is no joke. This BCBGeneration cold-shoulder top (re-stocked in all sizes!!), Spanx black denim leggings (also seen here, and virtually once a week), and Coconuts by Matisse ankle-wrap wedges have been on repeat since spring.

Striped Swim Look The Glitter Life

The Joes and I didn’t go ANYWHERE for Memorial Day weekend, and it was magical. Sometimes relaxing at home is the best way to recharge. We did have a few friends over for a pool party Saturday night, and this striped bikini top and bottom from Target got a lot of compliments. As I’m writing this post, all sizes are still available! I love how the top feels so secure, and it’s true to size. The bottoms are not as cheeky as most styles right now – I probably could have sized down, but with two kids…better safe than sorry. Also, have you guys tried this SPF 30 Brush On Block yet? It’s a truly genius product – you just twist the brush and a translucent SPF powder materializes on the brush. No greasy sunscreen lotion getting in your eyes, no kids coughing exaggeratedly “ughhhhh it’s in my mouth!!!!” as you spray them. Wait, are mine are the only ones that do that? Seriously, try it.

Flamingo Float
the best $39 you will spend this summer

This flamingo pool float is EVERYTHING. I *hate* floats that don’t keep you above water – if I wanted to get wet, I would SWIM. -_- This giant pink beauty keeps me suspended above the water and provides plenty of room to relax. I do recommend using an air compressor or similar-ish thingy (idk what they’re called, I’m not a scientist) to inflate it. Don’t ask me how I know.

Off Shoulder Striped Top
happy memorial day!

On Memorial Day, Jennifer sipped a few margs in this adorable striped off-shoulder top. It comes in petite AND tall and – unbelievably! – it’s under $20. You’ll have plenty of money left over for queso.

We’ve got tons of cute stuff planned for the next few weeks. Follow along on Instagram and tag us in your own pics!

What We’re Wearing

Joe and Jay were traveling this weekend, so Jennifer and I were both home alone with our nuggets. The one-on-one time was nice, but we’re dragging today. Can we get a do-over on the weekend?

In case you missed us on Instagram, here’s a look at what we’ve been wearing (apparently we had a blue-and-white theme going). There are some STEALS here, you guys!

Gingham Off Shoulder Top
this gingham off-the-shoulder top is adorbs…and also comes in petite and tall sizes. we’ve linked all three to the photo!

wore this knit dress (now on sale for $60!) to dinner to celebrate joe’s birthday – it’s my idea of the perfect date night look. my favorite tasseled sandals are under $30 – crazy! my Kate Spade clutch is sold out, but this one is super similar.
Striped One-Shoulder Top
you guys loved this $35 one-shoulder top from Nordstrom. it’s been restocked in all sizes!
White Bandeau Bikini
the swimsuit struggle is real, but this Target bandeau top *actually fits*…comes in four colors…and each piece is under $20! can’t beat that.

Speaking of swimsuits, Target has tonsss of cute ones right now. Click here to see our favorites under $30. Psssst you get free shipping on orders over $25!

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

{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 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!
