We went down to Colorado Springs to Garden of the Gods Park, which is absolutely stunning and I highly recommend it for engagement photos or just to visit! Such a cool Colorado sight! But anyway, let’s focus on the task at…

What to Wear to Summer Weddings This Year

I kinda feel like “wedding season” is 9 months of the year these days – anyone else? Maybe it’s my age, but it seems like from early spring until the holidays, there’s a wedding pretty much every month – which I love! But it also means shopping for “wedding season” is basically a year-round sport. I’m working on doing something cool for y’all for weddings – maybe a huge guide…

Weekend Brunch Looks

The sun is shining and the temps are rising – we know what that means, ladies…Saturday and Sunday brunch, so find your favorite patio and order those mimosas! Ha! I love the emergence of spring in Texas because these are the few weeks we have that it’s not SCORCHING hot before summer hits. If you live anywhere other than Texas, you can probably wear the longer sleeved looks for while…

This week I put together looks specifically for a Spring date night outfit. For me, when it comes to putting together a cute outfit for a date, I want to feel all the things in just the right way: cute, sexy, put-together, effortless, and confident! I want to look like I tried, but not like I tried too hard if you know what I mean? I put together a few looks that I hope will inspire you for next date night this season! I’m looking forward to hearing which one you like best and what you think about the looks overall too! I love hearing from you and how I can help you get dressed and feel your best!

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 ;)

13 Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

WOAH. Thanksgiving is next week! I knew it was coming up but next week? Just woah. I’ll be honest, the weather in Dallas has NOT been cooperating with me, so my plans of shooting all these new Thanksgiving outfits went out the window. BUT, I realized I was going to basically recreate an outfit I’ve already shot (leather leggings, leopard shoes and a sweater), so in the effort of making…

Summer Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

With summer officially kicking off tomorrow (#YAY!), I’ve been feeling so refreshed when it comes to fashion. You can probably tell from my Instagram, but it’s HOT in Dallas and summer style is in full swing. But instead of going out and buying all the things this summer, I’m trying really hard to be more mindful when it comes to consuming. Maybe it’s just me going through a phase, but…

And honestly, it really depends on the type of wedding it is, but I do have some tips on summer wedding attire to share with y’all today. Then, we’ll get into what to wear to a summer wedding depending on the dress code, too. What to Wear to…

What to Wear to A Fall Wedding

I've gotten a lot of questions lately regarding the ins-and-outs of what to wear to a Fall wedding. And rather than answering them all individually, I figured it might be helpful to whip up a blog post channeling all that I have to say about fall wedding attire. Fall is quickly becoming (if not already) one of the most popular times to get married. And personally, it's one of my favorite times of year to attend weddings. The weather down here in Texas can get so stinkin' hot in the Summer - October & November temperatures are pretty perfect and are way more favorable.

What to Wear to a Black Tie Wedding

I'm getting fancy on y'all today! For real though, I had so much fun putting together this post. I've talked about what to wear to weddings and wedding-related events before on BTD, but I've never done anything quite this glamorous when it comes to wedding attire - and I loved it. Plus, I've never dedicated an entire blog post to talking strictly about what to wear to a BLACK TIE wedding. So I thought it was about time to add this topic to the mix.

Dallas Farmer’s Market

I’m not your typical farmer’s market kinda gal – I’ve of course heard and seen them before, but for some reason the thought of actually going never crossed my mind until recently. A friend of mine told me about a market right here in Dallas, and since I’m doing my best to be healthy Brighton, I thought it’d be a fun way to explore a new adventure and to pick…

What To Wear To A Graduation

Given that I just spent the weekend doing graduation-related festivities, I thought it would be only fitting to do a post on what to wear to a graduation (that's not your own). And although it's the end of the season with most graduation ceremony's behind us, it's still worth writing a blog post on just in case any of you needs help for next year :) Plus, I won't have another graduation ceremony to go to until my youngest sister graduates in a few years - so it was now or in 3 years.

What to Wear to a Baseball Game

With baseball season coming up, some of my friends have been throwing out dates to go to a game. Since I'm sure a lot of you are in the same boat (or are forced to go to games thanks to a dude in your life) I thought I'd share one of my favorite looks for a game - specifically baseball to stay seasonal! This "get up" is, in my humble opinion, is the perfect look for a game.

What To Wear To A Christmas Party

It's officially holiday party time, y'all! Are your calendars suddenly seeming suuuuper full? Raising my hand over here! It's such a fun time of year, but also pretty overwhelming, right? One of my favorite parts for the parties is getting dressed up. It's the one time of year where fabrics like velvet and sequins are appropriate and everything feels a little fancier - I love it for a couple months! Since there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to what to wear to a holiday party, I wanted to cover it all for you. And since having an idea of what you'll wear to parties in advance reduces the stress big time, I wanted to write this early into the season. Hopefully everything below will help you have a better idea of what to wear to all parties!

What to Wear When You Just can’t

There are mornings slash DAYS (slash weeks lol) where I have zero energy to put on something Instagram-worthy for the world to see. Either I had a late night, feeling meh, or I just get lazy, and I'll get in a funk where I just can't do it. I can't put something amazing together, do my hair, or even wear real pants. I promise being a blogger doesn't come with some 24/7 motivation to get fully ready and put together, even though it may seem like that.

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

It’s almost Thanksgiving, y’all! Food, football, family…and let’s be real, fashion! I love planning outfits for Thanksgiving, and it’s usually when fall starts to feel real around here – finally. I usually choose a few different outfits for the holiday. Between the prep hours and cooking, then actually eating, and other celebrations like Friendsgiving (and let’s be real, my indecisiveness), I need to have a few options. Plus, I find…
