John 1:1 and what I learned

Posted on // Posted In Life and Faith // // 4 Comments

Some of you were asking about how I spend time with the Lord and what it ‘looks’ like (e.g., what I read, what I write, what I think about, how I pray, etc.) And in an effort to give you a little glimpse into this part of my life, I thought I would share this simple yet exciting experience that came from reading the first chapter of John.

My quiet time always looks different – sometimes it’s stale, sometimes it’s super short and then sometimes (responsibility permitting) it can last all day long. This particular experience, as you’ll see, was more of a learning/discovery journey for me.


pink cobalt scallops

Feeling super preppy over here in my hot pink and scallops, but then again I’m a big supporter of (mostly) all things prepster.

But let’s talk about this skirt y’all, I LOVE it and am so tempted (!) to buy it in the black. It’s rare that I find a skirt that I love a lot, but this one is great. The only thing is that it runs a little small; I’m wearing a US size 2 but I think it’s too tight (I would go up to US size 4 if I were to buy again…but I ordered online and was too lazy to exchange…ha)

Lavender Sundress

I feel like high-low dresses have already come and gone and had their time, so to say (like maybe circa 2012?). But whatever. Like with most ‘trends’, I don’t care.

I’m a fan and love everything high-low from skirts to dresses to tops too. I think it adds a little extra flair and feminine touch to any hemline (at least in the case of skirts and dresses).

Patriotic Stripes

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // Tagged With: // 10 Comments

I LOVE love love this dress. I love the colors and the stripes, but I REALLY love the cut and fit of it. I feel like it’s just a super flattering shape – and love the sleeves too (it adds a special little touch of conservatism to the look). And it’s perfect for any 4th festivities (off the water/pool of course) that you might have coming up!

I just got this lipstick color and am SO OBSESSED. It’s sold out everywhere in stores (I checked Neimans, Nordstrom AND Sephora and ended up having to order online). So unless you’re lucky enough to catch it when they’ve got a fresh shipment, you should just order it.  Apparently, this color (No. 52) is the top selling color this summer! So yeah, it’s a good one and definitely worth a shot!

Little Pink Dress

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // Tagged With: // 8 Comments

I love this dress so much I might have to get in both colors! I don’t know what it is, but it just fits SO well and has just the right amount of ‘flounce’ – if you know what I mean?! I love the detailing in the hem and how it’s a little asymmetrical too!

There are adjustable straps for if you’re taller or shorter (pretty sure I have them on the tightest option possible!) and it’s lined so you don’t need to worry about it being see-through either. All in all, it’s a GREAT dress :) I’m wearing size XS for reference.

Shop The Look:

Dress (under $50!) // Sunglasses // Earrings // Shoes // Watch


White Tunic Dress + Dry Shampoo

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // // 11 Comments

I’m always game for an easy tunic/shirt dress. And this one is pretty over-sized, which means lots of airflow to keep the summer sweat layer to a minimum (ha!). No but really, it’s comfy and is just the right kind of baggy/loose if you know what I mean?!

Not gonna lie, my hair was like 3 days old when I took these photos. On one hand, I’m like…wow you kind of can’t tell! And then on the other hand, I’m like OMG that’s kind of foul. Right? TMI? eeek. But yeah, I’m going to share my dry shampoo secrets since it’s basically a part of this outfit…

Shop The Look:

Tunic Dress // Earrings // Cross body Bag // Heels // Sunglasses // Bracelets


Embroidered Blue Swing Top

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // Tagged With: , // 11 Comments

This top kind of rocks my socks y’all. I mean, it’s cute for a number of reasons but mostly it’s a GREAT color, great price, and easy to wear. What else is there anyway? It’s super cute with skinny jeans too (#duh) but I should give you a heads up that it’s just a tad short-ish (so if you like longer shirts, I maybe wouldn’t advise this one…) But all in all, it’s pretty ‘clutch’/fetch/awesome.

Instagram Round Up (June Part 3)

Posted on // Posted In Instagram Round Ups // // 6 Comments

This past week has been a busy one! I spent most of the week in Charlotte visiting my friend Caitlin (you’ll see her in one of my photos below!). I was there for two full days, but I feel like we didn’t have enough time to hand out! Needless to say, I’m already planning my next trip (ha!).

Please let me know if I forgot to include any details from my instagram that you were hoping to get information on – I’m happy to answer any questions!

Striped Shirtdress

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // Tagged With: // 4 Comments

During the summer, I love wearing easy dresses. But lately, I’ve been partial to this whole button-up-collar-shirt-dress look. I think it’s SO cute and such a fun and flattering look.

I think it’s ‘technically’ a tunic; but since I’m only 5 foot 2, I was able to war it as a dress :) It would also be cute with white jeans if you’re tall enough to pull it off!

Recent Outfits Now on Sale

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // // 4 Comments

As I was scrolling through recent outfits (and checking whether they’re still in stock), I noticed that a good bit of the items I’ve worn recently are now on sale! I know it’s late, but I figured I’m better late than never when it comes to posting this round up today (it’s 6 PM – oops!). Anyway, here’s a round up of recent things now on sale!


Navy Shirt with Lace Inset

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // // 12 Comments

I love love love this shirt. It’s a fave for many reasons, but I think what sold me was the fun lace detail and the fact that it’s sleeveless (which is pretty much necessary for me during the summer)! I also love the fact that I could easily dress it up or down and navy is such an easy color to wear too.

I’m at the Charlotte airport now heading back to Dallas. I’ve been visiting my friend Caitlin this week in NC and am headed back to Dallas for one of my best friends weddings this weekend! I’m so excited :)

The Perfect Striped Swing Dress

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // Tagged With: , , // 12 Comments

Admit it, you think this dress is cute. And you kind of want it. It’s okay. I’d be willing to argue it’s a universally cute dress. But you know what’s going to sell you on it?

It’s $35.

Yeah, I know. You need it. You’re welcome ;)


White Eyelet-Trimmed

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // // 10 Comments

I feel like this top might be cuter with skinny jeans but I was trying to do something different – because I literally wear skinny jeans every single day. But hey, if it works…it works right?! Anyway, if you are looking for a good and affordable pair of boot it jeans, I do love these ones from GAP.

Ok back to this top, I’m obsessed. It’s super cute! And I also wore it as a coverup last weekend because it’s kind of tunic-ish! And it’s on sale!

I’m blogging from my phone right now because I’m in Charlotte, visiting my friend Caitlin and I was traveling all day yesterday so I didn’t get w chance to finish this post (oops!) Anyway, we’re on the way to the beach right now (don’t worry, I’m not driving!)

Follow on snapchat and Instagram as well – username brightonkeller! Oh and I just got a periscope account too, I’m having so much fun with it! I literally JUST heard about it so it might be new to you too, but it’s fun!

A Different Shade of Chambray

Posted on // Posted In Outfits // // 11 Comments

I already have a few denim/chambray button up shirts, but there was something about this one that was different. I really liked the wash and the texture/feel of the material. It’s super soft and yet not too thin. It’s also just the right length. I

think it would also look cute with black shorts, but I haven’t been able to find a pair that I like. For me, shorts are hard. I can never really find any that fit me – do any of y’all have that issue? But when it comes to white jeans, you’ve heard me say it a million times…these ones are the Period the end. I pretty much wear them three times a week…or maybe more.
