You Can’t Go Wrong With A Floral Print Dress

No matter the weather, the season, or the time of day, floral prints are always an effortless way to make a big statement with your outfit. I like floral print dresses especially because they are so comfortable, ultra-feminine and an entire outfit in one piece.

This past weekend I took an old floral print Lucky Brand dress out for a spin.

Favorite New Brand – Gal Meets Glam Collection

If you aren’t already obsessing over the Gal Meets Glam Collection, let me help with that! 

Launched in April 2018 by blogger and influencer Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, her vintage inspired, ultra-feminine line of dresses for everyday, smart-casual and formal dressing continue to wow each mid-month when the newest additions to the Collection are debuted. This month the line has expanded to include petite sizing, a new color in the silk scarf line, and skirt and jacket sets. 

As a more recent reader of two years, I have been drawn to Julia’s blog week after week by her impeccable style. Never afraid to put her own tasteful twist on the classics, she – and her style – is something I’ve been able to connect with and admire. Her brand, images, style and adventures are inspiring!

Today marks the launch of the September additions to GMG Collection and I wanted to share a few of my absolute favorites with you, plus some insights on fit and quality of materials.

What to Wear to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball

It’s now September and that means Marine Corps Birthday Ball season is fast approaching, with some happening as early as October! Dressing for the Ball seems simple enough. It’s a black tie event, which means non-service members should be either wearing a floor-length dress if they’re female, or suit and tie or tuxedo if you’re a male.
Those aren’t my rules, they’re straight from the MCCS website on proper ball etiquette but if you need further validation, ask the nearest General. Just kidding.

Lilac for Spring

I have been planning this post for a few weeks now and am so excited to finally get it all on the blog! It has to do with one of my favorite things…fashion! I don’t fancy myself an artistic or creative person per se, however clothes allow me to express what little artistic creativity I can muster and I love it! Since we are living on a military budget, I’m not quite able to satiate my inner desire for a fully stocked, coordinated and exciting wardrobe. So when something I’ve been hunting for months or – in this case – years pops up, I pounce! Which brings me to this lilac skirt.
