Spring/Summer Looks

Gal Meet Glam ‘Lauren’ Dress

When Julia announced she was launching a dress collection, I knew I had to snag one for myself. She was one of the first big bloggers I followed and I will never tire of her feminine and classic style. There are so many gorgeous options [I also love this and this in addition to the one I’m wearing here] and she really nailed this collection. I know I will be able to wear this dress for many occasions, from everything to spring weddings to baby showers to summer barbecues. I actually wore this exact look to a birthday party at a brewery and I love how it all came together. Even though the dress is a tad more on the formal side, it dressed down beautifully with flats and a jean jacket. I also plan to wear it with heels and a clutch. That’s how I justified the spend on this dress; I know the versatility allows for the styling options to be endless. Let me know if you’d like me to share how I plan to dress this up. All in all, I am so pleased with this dress. I wanted to let you all know that I did order my normal size and it is a bit snug in the rib cage. I wasn’t able to fit a padded bra underneath but a bralette worked just fine and it was a super flattering fit on me. If in doubt with this particular dress I’d size up. But my size fits well and I actually hope to lose 5-10 more pounds in the next 6 months, so I think it will be absolutely perfect then. Let me know if you’ve ordered anything from the collection in the comments!
