4 Brands I’m Loving Lately

Last week I shared a pretty laid-back post with y’all rounding up what I was buying for myself (like literally putting in my cart at the moment) from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I don’t usually do informal posts like that, but I really enjoyed putting that together so I figured I’d do something similar again this week. Who knows, maybe it will become a thing?

Today I want to share just a few things I’ve been loving lately; there’s no rhyme or reason and they’re in no particular order. You’ve probably seen me talk about a few of these on stories, but some of them might be new to you! Let me know what you think about this little round up in the comments – I’d love to hear from you!

1. Everlane Everything

I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to jump on the Everlane train, but consider me obsessed. I’ve heard people talking about their love for the company for YEARS, but I never tried it for myself. I’m not sure why because I was CLEARLY missing out. I love everything about the brand from their message to their branding, their transparency, social media and so much more. Recently, I’ve gotten so many things from them and have fallen in love with each and every piece. I talked about their bodysuit on stories, but I also got a few other things I wanted to share with y’all!

Everlane

Everyday Tote Bag

I’ve been debating between this bag and another similar one from another brand for months now, but finally pulled the trigger last week. And let me tell you, I am LOVING it. I love that it has such great structure to it – like, it doesn’t just fall over when I set it on the ground. Plus it easily fits my computer in it!

Lilac Tee Dress

Anything that I can throw on without having to think about putting together an outfit makes my life easier. This dress is literally PERFECT for Summer. The fit is just right and the color is so on-trend right now. I also love how lightweight it is! I got size XS and have already worn it twice in the past week!

Have you ever ordered anything from Everlane? If so, what’d you think? I have a sneaking suspicion you feel the same way as me because it’s sort of hard not to!

2. Amazon Clothes

Hello Amazon Fashion, where have you been all my life? oh wait, I know actually. IT has been there, but unfortunately, the site isn’t very user-friendly when it comes to fashion items. For some reason, it’s hard to find the good stuff. BUT when you find it, it’s like discovering a hidden treasure! I’ve found a few items lately – particularly in the workout department – that are too good not to share with y’all!

$29 Yoga Fitted Tank

Honestly, I was pretty excited yet also skeptical when I first saw this tank on Amazon for $29. I was like, how on earth?! This looks just like the lulu one! But after getting it in the mail and already wearing it 3x, I’m hooked! In fact, I’ve already purchased it in 2 other colors! It’s literally the same thing but for almost half the price! I love this lavender color! I got size XS.

$28 Cozy Pullover with Side Cutouts

I picked this up during the Prime Day sale and have been loving it! It’s so cozy and perfect for lounging around the house. I got a size XS, but maybe get a size up if you want it to fit a little more oversized. I love the length too!

3. Roberta Roller Rabbit Pajamas

I remember a friend telling me about how great this brand was for pajamas back in college but I never really did anything about it. Until I was doing a little shopping at a local boutique a few weeks ago and came across a pair in real life. And from that moment, I have since ordered 2 additional pairs because I am so hooked. These are the ones you’ve probably seen me wearing on repeat over the past 2 months because I can’t get enough. Oh, and heads up, if you get them, don’t put them in the dryer; mine shrunk a little bit! So I just hang them to dry after washing.

Printed Shorts Set Pajamas

I love these little shorts sets for so many reasons! I’ve purchased 3 so far this year and could probably convince myself I need a fourth set too, eventually. I love jersey material and how slimming the fit is. I wear size XS and they’re just right for me. I also love that the shorts are a little high-waisted and longer, so I don’t feel like I’m talking around in my underwear! I highly recommend this set in any print you like – there are a few fun ones to choose from!

4. Tula Skincare Products

If you’ve been following along on stories, then you’ve heard me talk about my love for Tula skincare. I’ve actually been using it for YEARS, but have just recently started using more of their products and consistently sticking to a nighttime routine. Until a few months ago, I had the simplest skincare regime – it was literally cleanser and moisturizer, period stop the end. I’m thinking I’ll write a more comprehensive blog post in a few weeks once I’ve got a few more weeks under my belt. But over the past few months, I’ve gradually added more products and have loved every additional one I’ve tried. These are my favorites as of late. Oh and heads up! Use discount code BRIGHTON at checkout! And if you spend over $50, you get free shipping!)

Tula Purifying Cleanser

This cleanser is great for all skin types! I’ve been using it for the past 6 months and I am obsessed with it! I used to use the Philosophy Purity cleanser but have slowly been transitioning my beauty products to be cleaner and after lots of research, I decided to give this one a try! I love how lightweight and gentle it is. And it smells nice too! It contains probiotics, which leave the skin looking (and feeling) nourished and balanced. Use code BRIGHTON for a discount at checkout!

Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream

I’ve been using this stuff for years – I absolutely LOVE it! It’s just thick enough to leave you feeling moisturized without feeling too heavy of a cream, you know? The smell is minimal (which I prefer – it just smells fresh). And it goes on super smooth. I put it on morning and night and always right before I apply primer and makeup too!

PS: I shared this top below on IG last night but forgot to share the deets on it. So here it is now :)

I love a good embroidered top – especially the colors in this one.
