lately.

It’s Tuesday – back to the GRIND. We’ll be sharing some super cute stuff with you on Insta later this week, but in the meantime, these outfits from the last few weeks deserve a second look!

One Shoulder Striped Ruffle Top
just before I dropped Joe off for a week in Athens // you can tell from our faces that both of us were a little apprehensive about being separated (but he had a GREAT time at camp!)

One-shoulder, ruffles, stripes…this sweet little top checked all my boxes. I’m wearing the black/white version, but it also comes in blue/white. It was sold out for a while, but now it’s been restocked in all sizes! I paired it with black Spanx denim leggings (yes, I’m still wearing them – they are super comfy, even in this insane heat!), my favorite tassel wedges and beaded tassel earrings, which come in tons of different colors. You can shop Joe’s little Sperry topsiders here.

Embroidered Hat
smiling because I really love this hat.

It has rained literally EVERY DAY this summer – and every single day – it’s forced me to up my rainy-day outfit game. I love this embroidered baseball hat from Dish (I’m also feeling this satin one from Forever 21, which is super similar!), and this lightweight camo jacket has become my go-to layer. It’s under $40 and is stocked in all sizes! I’ve been wearing these TOMS Memphis sunnies for over two years. They fit my face perfectly (no bending or molding necessary), and they never slide off my ears. These come in a bunch of cool color combos; the tortoise ones like mine are on major sale right now!

little joe
lady killer.

The Joes and I spent a weekend in Atlanta, doing some tourist-y things, hanging out with Jennifer, Jay and James and attending the christening of our sweet friend Corinna’s daughter Quinn. Little Joe broke hearts in his pink shorts and blazer (his is from Janie & Jack, and I couldn’t find it online…this one from J Crew is similar). Click the photo for the other details, including a few options for his Vineyard Vines shirt.

Off Shoulder Top
three cheers for the…

Just in time for the Fourth, Jennifer’s fave red and white striped off-shoulder top went on sale.

Speaking of the Fourth…this white BCBGeneration romper had just arrived at Sole, striking the perfect dressy/casual note. I added a simple blue envelope clutch and these red tassel earrings (get on my level! tassels are the best!), which come in black and dusty rose as well.

Rose Ttote
everything you need, stuffed into the cutest tote bag

Even though I didn’t travel for the Fourth, my favorite graphic tote got a workout. My holiday weekend essentials: navy lace-up tank, red stripe relaxed fit tankwhite bandeau bikini top, bikini bottom, brush-on sunscreen and striped straws. Because how else would I drink my wine?

Hope you all have a great week! xo

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
carrying this cute tote everywhere this summer

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!

currently craving: bows on our toes

We are SERIOUSLY feeling shoes featuring girly bows right now. No matter what your preferred silhouette – pump, sandal, or flat – there’s a bow for that. These cute styles are perfection!

closed-toe pumps

Closed-toe styles are so 50s-feminine. We love them paired with skinny pants for the office or a full midi-length skirt for evening.

mules

Slides and mules are BACK, and these bow styles are EVERYTHING. Depending on the heel height and width, these can skew casual or dressy.

flats & slides

high heel sandals

We came to party! These adorbs sandals will elevate the simplest dress to soiree-worthy.
