BTD Community’s Favorite Book List

I asked y’all to list your favorite book ever on this IG post and WOAH! Y’all left SO many options! I actually hadn’t planned on doing a post listing them out, but I know Instagram isn’t always the best place to source info from. I’m getting a post together on my favorite books of all time (and why I keep coming back to them) for next week, but in the…

What To Wear On a First Date

Hi friends! Remember weeks ago when I mentioned I was putting together a post on What to Wear on a First Date? Welp, 3 weeks later it’s finally here ;) Honestly, when I went to pick out an outfit for this post, I got kind of stuck. Which is fitting I guess because I know we’ve all been there trying to pick out the *perfect* first date outfit, texting our…

How to Style Over-the-Knee Boots Without Trying Too Hard

I have a love/hate relationship with the over-the-knee boot trend. Anyone else feel me?! On one hand, they can be super cute and sassy, and when styled right, I LOVE how they look. On the other, they can go from classy to trash really quick and sometimes I feel uncomfortable wearing them. It’s probably because I have more traditional, classic, everyday style to begin with, but y’all know I like…

The Best Places to Shop for Luncheon Attire

Last week one of my absolute best friends in the world got married and I was one of her bridesmaids. I’m not sure if people do this around the country (or if maybe it’s just a southern thing), but typically the Friday before the wedding weekend, the Bridesmaids host a luncheon to kick things off! The attire is usually “luncheon” attire which is always one that sort of trips me…

25 Winter Outfit Ideas + 5 Pieces I can’t Stop Wearing

Pretty sure we can all agree that winter is the worst month when it comes to getting dressed. Right?! Between it being freezing outside (yes, Dallas weather is cold to me!), darker nights, layering, and all the things, I’m kinda unmotivated this time of year. Just being honest!

When I get in one of those funks, I either try to switch up my style or I go through my older outfits. I literally forget how easy it is to pair certain things together, but I turn to younger Brighton to remind me ;)

Lessons I Learned in 2018

This year I learned a lot about how to deal with being overwhelmed and doing something when you feel like you can’t do anything. So many of my days in 2018 were spent taking one small step in a positive direction. I would get so STUCK. I’d think about ALL the things I had to do or what I wanted to happen or how I didn’t like how things were…

5 Ways to Style White Sneakers

Mom jeans and white sneakers have become one of my favorite combos lately and I actually can’t believe it took me so long to become obsessed. Especially with the whole sneaker trend – which you’ll find me pretty much every day of the week, even in the winter. Sneakers add an element of sporty-cute to any outfit and they’re just freaking comfy! Plus they’re a good switch from my regular…

An all white winter outfit is such a classic look and can…
