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!
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.
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…
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.
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!
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 :)
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!
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 bomb.com. Period the end. I pretty much wear them three times a week…or maybe more.
Not gonna lie, I was sweating like CRAZY when we were taking these photos. Whoooof it was a hot morning – it wasn’t even the heat of the day yet! I think it was only like 10 AM, which is pretty sad and scary at the same time. I don’t think I’m ready for the Texas heat and it’s only going to get hotter…and stickier. Eeek!
But speaking of rising temps, the best part about this dress is how light it is. To be honest, I thought it would maybe be see through when I first picked it up. But after trying it on, I was surprised to see that it’s not see through at all (but I did have on nude under stuff). It’s a perfect throw on for running errands and could easily be transitioned for dinner – might also be cute with a denim jacket! And of course, it would be cute as a swim coverup too :)
The fun and bright colors of this scarf is what got my attention and the tassels is what sold me. How fun is it? As someone who’s an avid wearer and fan of scarves (I think I have like 7 different colors and especially love wearing linen ones in the summer), I decided that I needed to add this one to my collection. I also sore it last weekend as a swimsuit coverup by tying it around my waist. (and it’s also cute tied in your hair!)
Aside from your basic day dress, maxi dresses have got to be the easiest thing on earth to wear; they literally require zero thought :) Just throw it on and GO. Done and done and easy as pie. The trick, I think, is finding the right color print. I usually prefer maxis that either have an empire waist or are a little more fitted than this one, but I loved the bohemian-esque vibe going on with this print. And I actually liked how there wasn’t much structure to it either – it’s super flowy and free.
There’s just something about this laid-back combo that I can’t get enough of. I love the juxtaposition of the distressed denim shorts paired with the fancy-ish patent leather pump. It looks (and feels!) effortlessly chic. And for the record, these are the same denim shorts I wore and talked about in this post last week. They’ve actually become one of my go-to’s lately because they’re so comfortable (since they fit so loosely).
