5 Clear Signs You Need a Vacation

Y’all might have noticed that my recent trip to Florida was last-minute, which is very Brighton but it’s not how I usually travel. Whether work or personal, I usually have trips planned out at least a few months in advance, but this trip was different. It seems like it’s a natural thing – waves of motivation – and lately, I had been in somewhat of a slump. I don’t even…


The Makeup Routine I Rarely Leave the House Without

Even though we talk a lot about beauty on BTD and I’m a Southern girl who loves to get all dolled up on occasion, honestly, I’m pretty low maintenance with my routine. Rarely am I into something that takes more than 20 minutes or makes me look unnatural. I’m much more into easy, effortless beauty routines or products. Because as you probably know, I’m constantly running 20 minutes behind, ha!

Real-life inspiration on what to wear per season or occasion, or how to style an outfit based on what’s already in your closet.

Currently Loving: Sam Edelman Denim

I’ve been a longtime fan of Sam Edelman since as long as I can remember. Sam Edelman shoes are always so stylish and on-trend while also affordable and comfortable too. So I was super excited to learn about their new denim line and couldn’t wait to try on a pair for myself! And just like their shoes, the jeans did NOT disappoint.

How to Look Stylish on a Beach Day

Y’all have probably seen from social media that I’m in Florida on a much needed vacation (but more on that in a post coming up soon!), and I’m tagging along with my mama and some friends. And the one thing about traveling with my mama is that she ALWAYS brings her fashion A-game. She’s kinda one of those people who doesn’t have to try and just looks freaking cute at all times. Even when we go to the beach.


Straw Accessories for Spring and Summer

Have y’all been as obsessed with straw as I am lately?! More so than in years past, straw is everywhere this season, and it makes me really happy. I’ve pretty much retired my neutral leather bags for straw ones, most of my wedges are straw-based, and let’s not forget about straw hats for weekend days or vacations. OBSESSED. I’m actually in Florida right now and brought all the straw things…


White Dresses Under $100

With Summer just around the corner (WHAT?!), I wanted to do a fun little round up of some of the cutest white dresses I’ve seen while online shopping. I’ve picked up a few super cute ones for myself, and so I thought I’d share the love! Speaking of shopping roundups, do y’all like these posts? Do you and them helpful? Back to all things white dresses. I love how you…


How to Create a Pampering Mother’s Day Box

Even though I’m personally nowhere near kids in my own life, a lot of my good friends have started families in the last year or two. Which is so exciting because I love kids and someday want a lot of them of my own! So as Mother’s Day rolls around, it’s not only a day to celebrate my own mama, but those new mamas around me as well. My friends…


The BTD Guidelines to Buying Jewelry for Others

Mother’s Day is coming up, which is usually the time that I try to find my mom a piece of jewelry (or help my dad too), and always always struggle with whether she’ll like it. I mean, jewelry can be SO personal, but it’s also one of my favorite things in the world – so I can’t help but to try and gift it. This year, instead of kinda choosing…


Cute Picks For Your Cinco De Mayo

Cinci De Mayo is around the corner and I’ve rounded up some cute ideas for what to wear. I’m currently loving the embroidery trend and think its so perft for any and all Cinco De Mayo plans you may have!  Whether you are grabbing margs with friends or going to a backyard party, I’ve got your fiesta outfit necessities. I’m still figuring out what I’m doing that weekend, but there’s always…


Getting The Right Things Done: Important vs. Urgent

Prioritizing your to-do list (and life) is obviously a personal process, but that doesn’t mean you should start from scratch. There’s a lot to learn from smart people who did great things and got a lot of *ish* done. I basically stalk successful people. Just kidding, but what I mean is that I love learning how they think and how they get things done. It helps me to see the world differently, improve my own processes, and think outside the box.
