April Week 2

April week 2 @brightonkeller instagram round up

Have you noticed this new series? Every Monday you can count on an instagram round up including all my recent instgram posts with outfit details for each photo. I’ll also do my best to include recent markdowns and any sales updates I’ve noticed over the past week as well!

Recently on Instagram (@brightonkeller)

brighton the day wearing high-waisted distressed white mini skirt with a striped long-sleeved tee and cognac wedges

This past week, temps rose a little bit and it felt a little bit like summer for a hot second until it rained…and then temps dropped again mid week. It’s been crazy how all over the place the weather has been lately in Dallas. Anyway, last Monday was SUPER windy and this long-sleeved + mini skirt duo was the perfect little combo for running errands  around town. These wedges are VERY comfortable and not too high so they’re easy to walk in :) Also, these earrings are under $20 you guys!

Outfit Details: Striped Pocket Tee // White Distressed Denim Skirt // Halogen Wedges // Chloe Marcie bag // Gold Fringe Earrings (under $20!) // BP Mirrored Sunglasses (only $12!)

I told you guys ALL about why I loved this dress a few weeks ago (in this blog post), but I posted about it again on my instagram early last week just in case you missed the post! Anyway, the point is that I love it and it’s under $50 :) and super easy to dress up OR down!

Like I said, the rain just kept on coming this past week and it’s actually still pouring as I type this! Anyway, I posted this to let you all know that they’re ON SALE and I just checked and as of right now (Sunday night) they’re still marked down!

Tuesday night, I went to an event at Williams Sanoma hosted by The Everygirl and Kendall Jackson Wines where one of the recent Top Chef winners prepared a fabulous 5 course meal paired with KJ wines. It was SO MUCH fun and I loved getting to meet the ladies behind The Everygirl.

On Thursday, I had a brunch at one of my favorite spots in Dallas – Sissy’s Southern Kitchen on Henderson. They have the yummiest feel-good food – think mashed potatoes and fried chicken! And the atmosphere is super cute!

Threw this on after brunch to go and check out the new IVY PARK collection (Beyonce’s new workout line!) at Nordstrom later that afternoon (which was amazing by the way!). I ended up getting a sports bra (don’t think the one I got is online yet because I couldn’t find it?), an oversized tank and workout pants and an oversized short-sleeved sweatshirt (the one I put on snapchat).

Outfit Details: Sweater (40% OFF!) // jeans // wedges (old Dee keller – similar here) // Tory Burch York Tote

This weekend was mostly centered around celebrating one of my best friend’s getting married! And of course, it was a complete BLAST! The rehearsal dinner was at The Joule and it was so beautiful.

Although I posted this look on Saturday, it was actually a latergram from date night earlier in the week. This top is super easy and under $50 – great for summer coming up! And would also look cute with shorts!

This is what I wore to the wedding – I got so many compliments! :) And if you saw my snapchat, then you got to see how BEAUTIFUL the reception was! It was seriously SO amazing! It was at the Dallas Museum of Art and so different and special than any other Dallas wedding I’ve ever been to!
