The month of April has always been particularly busy for us, and it’s also a time when I do a lot of shopping. We have so many occasions to attend that I love to find pieces I can (and want) to wear again and again. This GMG Collection mint striped maxi dress is exactly that and I literally counted down the days leading up to its release so I could buy it.
If you haven’t heard of the Gal Meets Glam Collection brand, the cliffs notes are: it’s a dress line created by fashion blogger Julia Engel that launched a year ago, and every single dress is ultra feminine, swoon-worthy, and focused on the details. A new collection of dresses is released every month, and they often bring back some of the most popular styles in new prints or colors. In fact, my first GMG dress (from the first collection release) was re-released this April in my color (blue) as well as pink. They are definitely timeless pieces!
If you follow the GMG blog or Instagram account, they give peeks of each new collection leading up to its release, and as I said I couldn’t wait for this one to come out. I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be mine! Every single detail gives me all the heart eyes: the square neckline, the ruffled sleeves, the bow on the back…and don’t get me started on the way the tiered skirt caught the breeze and blew. It was a dream to wear!
I wore it for the first time to my birthday dinner with Blake’s family, and again a couple weeks later to my best friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner. I styled it with Castaner espadrille wedges for both occasions, which are probably the single best spring shoe you could buy. I have the white pair with a lace-up ankle seen here, as well as a yellow pair with an ankle strap. I’ve worn both with dresses, jeans, and shorts. They look good with absolutely everything!
