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!

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!).

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.

style guide: dressing your baby bump.

Some of you may know that L is expecting again – another baby boy will join the TGL family in August! To say that we are excited is an understatement. Between J’s wedding and L’s new baby, 2015 is shaping up to be a big year for us.

Dressing around a baby bump can be challenging – especially if you want to at least reasonably maintain your not-pregnant style. While there’s nothing wrong with buying into “maternity fashion” – loud prints, belly bands, etc…there ARE other options. From L:

1. Size up in regular clothes. You are not required to buy “maternity” clothes. There are tonnnns of regular clothing styles that can work throughout your pregnancy – if you go one size up. Some of my favorites:

  • Mamie Ruth “Cabana” Empire-waist Maxi Dress (1)– Channel your inner 70s goddess in this beautifully-cut, bump-friendly dress.
  • Faux leather leggings (2) – These fit right over your bump. Bonus: it’s hard to feel frumpy when you’re wearing skinny “leather” pants. Pair with an oversized tee or a tank plus kimono. This style is a best-seller at Dish for all shapes, sizes and ages.
  • PPLA Pismo Beach Tee (3) – This loose-fitting striped tee (see below about stripes!) looks great with faux leather leggings or shorts.
  • Spanx skinny denim (4) – I have been wearing these non-stop. They’re super-stretchy and perfect with a loose top and wedges.
  • Piko Long Sleeve Dress (5) – All hail the Piko dress. This uber-popular style cropped up this fall and is just perfect for growing bumps. The arms are fitted but the body is loose, so you can wear this throughout your pregnancy.
  • Blank NYC Pull-On Belles (6) – These super-comfy flares embrace one trend (70’s bell bottoms) while ignoring another (high-rise). The result is a pair of jeans that look spot-on but sit comfortably underneath your baby bump. L sported these at dinner in NYC and got tons of compliments! Great news: they’re coming to Dish Statesboro in a few weeks.

2. Go for classic prints. Were you into multi-color swirly prints before you got pregnant? I wasn’t either. (BUT IT’S OKAY IF YOU ARE – that’s just not me.) I can’t bring myself to buy them just because I’m expecting. That said, prints can be a nice diversion from a growing bump. Hold out for classic stripes, ginghams and plaids in looser shapes. One of my favorite pieces right now is a navy gingham Tory Burch tunic handed down from my mom. It’s one size larger than I would normally wear (see above!), and it’s perfect with those white Spanx skinnies. Oversized black and white striped tunics (like this one by PPLA) and tees pair perfectly with black faux leather leggings and booties. In the fall, a plaid tunic looks great with dark leggings and tall brown boots.

3. Accessorize. Even if you get creative, chances are you will have a limited rotation of things to wear while pregnant. This is okay – relatively speaking, pregnancy is just a blip on your style radar. Don’t invest too much in clothes for this time period because it will be over before you know it! Instead, accessorize your pregnancy capsule to the fullest: pay attention to shoes, add a hat, switch up your jewelry, etc. One of my favorite looks right now is a pair of elastic-waist ivory lace shorts, and oversized black tank, and my knee-high Minnetonka lace-up boots paired with a leather tassle necklace and a Panama hat. It’s comfy, trendy…and feels like something I would wear nine months from now.

How do you feel about dressing for pregnancy?
