holiday dressing.

As promised, here are a few of my favorite looks for the holiday season. You don’t need much: a fun little skirt and a few special accessories will get you through.

Plaid Skirt
merry little holiday skirt.

I wore this adorable plaid skirt for a family holiday event. It’s sold out for now (but keep looking – this brand has a habit of restocking popular items!), so I rounded up some other equally cute little plaid numbers for you guys.

Spanx Tights
best. tights. ever.

Here I am, wearing my trusty “Sidewalk Skirt” again. Also, I’m a big believer in tights. They really do make a huge difference as far as warmth! But all tights are not created equal. These Spanx Luxe Leg Tights are the only tights I will ever wear – they are 100% opaque, never lose their shape and do a LOT for you as far as holding everything in. They’re a big confidence booster! I’m wearing them in the first pic as well.

Calf-Hair Leopard Clutch
so much love for this clutch.

Continuing my love for all things leopard…this clutch is perfection. Mine is from Sole Statesboro, but this baby is EVERYWHERE this season. Click here to see some super-similar options in a range of price points.

Bow Earrings
festive bow earrings.

Jennifer scooped these cute black ribbon hoops, and I’m going to do the same. They’re the perfect finishing touch to any holiday outfit.

my fall/winter capsule, part 2.

Merry, merry everything! The holidays are in full swing, and since both of us have little ones our posting may become a little spacy as we (try to) focus on our boys during this special time of year. Here’s a look at some of my favorite outfits from the last couple of weeks. As I mentioned in this post, I tend to do “capsule dressing” AKA buying a few new pieces every season that work with 1) what I already have and 2) also work with each other. It makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! Click each photo to shop the look, or (if you’re looking at this on our website), click each piece in the product widget below the photo.

Sidewalk Skirt
The skirt I’ve been wearing all fall.

I’ve put this wool “Sidewalk Skirt” in heavy rotation this fall/winter (and it’s on MAJOR SALE right now – less than $20! – so scoop several colors!). The gathered/ruched/ruffled/ waistband is super-comfy, and the high-waisted fit is so flattering. It’s perfect with tights as well. I’m wearing it here with my all-time favorite sweater (I have it in several colors – can’t stop, won’t stop) and leopard-print heels.

And speaking of leopard…

Leopard Print Faux Fur Jacket
is leopard-print a neutral? 100%.

This faux-fur jacket makes me SO happy. I love the length and how cozy it feels – it’s honestly warmer than some of my “serious weather” coats. Leopard-print looks great with literally EVERYTHING (the only exception: something else leopard-print). I wear mine with everything from jeans and a button-down to an LBD. My exact coat sold out super fast, but I rounded up a ton of other options for you guys in a range of price points.

Corduroy Skort
skorts are so sporty!

This corduroy skort from Sole Statesboro is a super-versatile piece – it’s lightweight, so it looks great with bare legs and loafers…but it also works great with tights (these Spanx tights are the ONLY tights I will ever wear!) and booties. I’m wearing the skort here with the same wool sweater from above and and a ruffle coat from several years ago. If you love dressy coats like there, click here for my round-up of the best ruffle coats this year!

Teddie Wool Sweater
bright orange + COFFEE on a beautiful fall day.

Here’s my go-to sweater in bright orange. Orange is one of my favorite colors – it works so perfectly with olive, navy, etc. I’m wearing it here with Spanx denim leggings (which you should REALLY check out if you haven’t yet) and a statement necklace. I’m definitely in favor of wearing statement necklaces for everyday – they elevate basics and make them feel special.

Stay tuned for my favorite holiday dressing! Hope the rest of your week is wonderful – xo

my fall capsule, part 1.

Gah I LOVVVEEE this time of year – the last few weeks have been gloriously cool, and it really feels like the holidays are about to begin! Here’s a look at some of my favorite outfits from last week. I tend to do “capsule dressing”, buying a few new pieces every season that work with 1) what I already have and 2) also work with each other. It makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! Today I’m sharing a few of my new pieces, and I’ll share a few more next week. As you can see, I gravitate towards classic shapes and bright, clear colors. Click each photo to shop the look, or (if you’re looking at this on our website), click each piece in the product widget below the photo.

Gucci Belt Look
preppy style is LIFE – love this combo!

This look is pretty typical of my style – I love a great blazer paired with jeans. This belt was a definite splurge but I have worn it almost every day this fall. Every girl needs a navy blazer in her closet, and this one from J Crew Factory fits perfectly. My striped tee is another favorite J Crew purchase – there are a few sizes left. If those don’t work for you, this one is almost identical and also comes in a red stripe – cute!

Ruffle Button Down
polka dots AND ruffles? yes, please.

I’m always looking for a great button-down – but they are HARD to find! So many of them are bulky and bother me under sweaters…so I was super excited when I found this polka-dot one from J Crew Factory. It’s got a lot of stretch but it’s not clingy. It works great alone or under a sweater. I love it so much that I got it in two colors (see below). My favorite distressed skinnies are sold out everywhere, but I found some other options for you from 7 For All Mankind, Free People and New York & Co. And that’s my favorite bag in the background – you can read more about why I love it here.

Red Ruffle Button Down
love this pop of red

Okay, here’s the same ruffle button-down in red. So cute! I’ve added my favorite Frye boots – I love how they look more and more beat-up every year.

Hope the rest of your week is wonderful! xo

black + white 🖤

Over the past few years, a black, leather moto jacket has always been on my shopping list and I never pulled the trigger… until now!

This Blank NYC beauty is perfection (and under $100…) The gold hardware is probably what sold me. Why is that so hard to find? I digress.

The jacket goes with everything. Dress it up with a skirt and heels or down with distressed denim and sneaks. Scoop your very own before it sells out and scroll to the bottom to shop the whole look!

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 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.

Moments Cover The Glitter Life

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
