‘Swing’ Into Fall With This Must Have Dress; Perfect For Every Occasion!

Last week Lauren clued you all in on her super cute bibs (they really are adorbs!)  This week, it’s my turn to fill y’all in on one of my favorite fall pieces.  I’ve mentioned to you before how much I absolutely adore a good swing dress, BUT these are my favorite swing dresses of all time. This is the perfect combination.  I love the oxford dress shirt look, but the flattering fit of a swing dress!  This design is more fitted through the chest and then very forgiving in the waist and hips.  It also provides the perfect amount of twirl factor!  

These swing dresses are the perfect weight for nearly every season – you can wear them bare-legged or with tights.  There are so many ways to style them: just throw on a cute pair of slides or tennis shoes to dress them down or pair them with booties to dress them up.  As the weather gets colder, just add in a pair of opaque tights and you are good to go!

While the pattern above in unavailable right now, there are still several colors/patterns to choose from!  (Spoiler alert: I ordered them all this past weekend – I’m not even kidding.)  Check them out and let us know what your favorite one is!   And keep checking back as we continue into fall; last year they came out with a Holiday collection and it was the perfect amount of plaid.

Perfect Spring Dress Alert!!! BOAF Boutique Coupon Code Included!

It’s a beautiful winter we’ve been having this spring!  (*eye roll*)  Who’s ready for spring to actually show up and stick around?!? I know we at Glitter Jungle are! This weather has teased us with a couple of warm, breezy days and left us craving sundresses and sandals!  So naturally, we went looking for the perfect, casual spring dress!

We found them at our first stop: Birds of a Feather Boutique (BOAF)! It is a cute, cozy boutique located in Huntington, WV at Heritage Station. BOAF sells unique and trendy items at super affordable prices both in store and online.

This easy fitting, jersey swing dress has a cute lattice detail and comes in tons of spring colors! The best part is that it has POCKETS and is only $24!! It will take you from the ball field to dinner to church and can be paired with sandals, mules or heels. This dress comes in sizes small through extra large. It is SUPER roomy and depending on how you like to wear your dresses, a Medium could range anywhere from a size 6-12. Lauren is 5’8″ and the dress hits 2-3 inches above her knee. She is wearing a medium.  Jill is 5’2″ and you see that it hits below her knee. The dress is fitted through the chest and arms but extremely forgiving in the body.  If you are larger chested (like Jill) I would say that it runs true to size.  If you are smaller chested you could definitely size down for a more fitted look.

In addition to this dress, BOAF also has a sleeveless swing dress with pockets in a variety of colors for spring – that could be dressed up or down and will take you right into summer!  The sleeveless dress would be PERFECT for the office – just throw on a cute cardigan, slide on some mules and you’re all set!

Because we love BOAF and know that you will love these dresses and, well EVERYTHING else in the store, BOAF is giving 15% off your entire order (not just the dresses listed) from today through Wednesday with the promo code GLITTER! Be sure to grab your favorite dress because sizes are limited and these are going to go fast. Also for you locals, check back for an in-store sale later this week.

To give you some outfit inspo, we’ve styled our dresses several different ways below to show you just how versatile these dresses really are!  What’s your favorite style?  Let us know!  We’d love to hear.

 

We know you will love your BOAF order! Let us know what you got!

XOXO,

Jill & Lauren

The Magnificent Maxi Dress That Every Woman Should Own

It’s summer and beach vibes are all around us.  If you’re anything like me, style is very important but comfort is too.  My go-to ‘mom uniform’, in the summer, is any dress that’s cute but also keeps me cool; versatility is a must as well.  I feel like it’s my job in life to let you all know that I’ve officially found the PERFECT maxi dress.  It’s stylish, comfy, SUPER flattering and made out of material that doesn’t wrinkle or cling (hallelujah!)   And the best part is, this dress is less than $35.  I wore this dress for a date night at the beach, but I also plan to throw on a kelly green cardigan and wear it to the office as well.  Another positive feature is that this dress has adjustable straps for short people like me!  (Yay!)  I paired my dress with cute brown leather slides, but you could totally rock wedges with it as well.  If you’re on the market for a fun maxi dress, give this one a try.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  Dress fits true to size.

 

Sleeveless V-Neck Maxi Dress

Sidenote:  This pattern literally went unavailable today (hopefully they’ll restock), but there are still three other colors available that are all adorable.  The mustard yellow pattern is one of my favorites; I’ve tried it on in person and almost purchased it.

If you decide to purchase, make sure to share your photos with us!  We’d love to see you.

 

Happy shopping and much love,

Jill

Button And Bear Children’s Boutique: Summer Collection Reveal And Giveaway!

I’ll never forget the moment during my first gender-reveal appointment when the ultrasound tech pointed out those three little lines that told us we were having a baby girl. Images of sweet, frilly dresses and huge, pink bows flashed across my mind, and I couldn’t wait to jump off of that table and run to the mall to start shopping, much to my husband’s dismay.
But when I did start shopping (probably within hours of that ultrasound), I was so disappointed in the local selection. There were the normal chain stores, which carried some cute pieces – but cute pieces that everyone else had. And my baby girl? Well – she was going to be special.
(Moment of truth: Three and a half years later, she likes to dress herself and usually chooses not-matching, weirdly paired outfits, much to MY dismay.)
My Mom and I had generic discussions about opening our own boutique and offering cute, but also very affordable, fashion options for little girls. And one day in Spring 2016, with the encouragement from my Dad, we jumped right in.
Button & Bear (named after my nicknames for my kids, Charlotte & Jack, respectively), has been a fun little adventure, and we so enjoy choosing pieces we think you and your girls will love! Having a little girl, myself, I know the necessity of having pieces that work for everyday wear, as well as running to the mall or dinner with family, and we choose many of our collections with versatility in mind.
Equally as important to us, is offering products that won’t break your bank (or keep you from going through the Starbuck’s drive-through, because, coffee!). There are certainly occasions to whip out that credit card and splurge (or call Grandma!), but daily life isn’t one of them, and we have kept it our mission to offer boutique fashion at affordable prices.
After all the nitty gritty, though, my Mom and I just love what we do. We have so much fun choosing product, setting up shop at vendor events, and just showing y’all our sweet pieces. We hope you love them as much as we do!
Our current collection, The Garden Party Collection, is on pre-sale through the end of today, and you absolutely don’t want to miss it! It’s the sweetest group of flowery, summer-inspired prints and colors, and we know you and your girls will love them! Be sure to visit our website, because these items won’t be available to purchase after today!
 

 

And because we love Glitter Jungle so much, we are giving away a $10 store credit to one lucky reader! **To enter for a chance to win, like this post, tag a friend and share on Facebook, today only!** We will announce a winner tomorrow.
Can’t wait until the giveaway ends? Totally don’t blame you.
Use promo code GLITTER right now on our website to get 15% off your entire order. This includes our brand-new collection!
Happy Monday, y’all!
