A few months ago Julia teased this red jumpsuit (it also comes in pink!) and ever since I have been saving up to make this special purchase fit into my shopping budget for all of our holiday soirées! I ordered it the very second the collection launched and when It arrived, with fingers crossed, I tried it on hoping it would deliver romance and elegance. (It did!)

I can’t explain how, but this jumpsuit fits so perfectly - to the point where it feels like it was made for me! I attest this fact, to this concept - “made by a woman for a woman!” Julia just GETS IT you guys! Like perfectly. I wish I could purchase every piece from her collection!

I will admit, I am a feminine dress girl and look for pieces that are glam, romantic, and vintage feeling. Gal Meets Glam meets these goals! Plus adds a modern flair. I will buy anything with ribbons or bows. 

I think it can be tricky to find pieces that feel special and feel special sometimes! I can only imagine Julia being so precise about every detail that goes into her garments. The big red bow and the way it draps over the shoulder! The length of the wide leg jumpsuit and the way it flows with your every move!

I don’t know about you , but I am either mingling, sipping, or dancing when it comes time to hit up the holiday party scene! This is an outfit that will allow me to feel comfortable if I need to bend over, pick up my kids, kick up a leg on the dace floor, or just taking in the festive scenes around me. 

When something makes me feel beautiful and special, it’s worth the investment. Plus I love to be celebration-ready and appreciate when it’s made easy! I love that this is a one piece and elevated with the attention to detail so you don’t have to worry about adding anything extra. Julia already included all the statement-making you need

When Gal Meets Glam first launched in the spring, I purchased a pink one-shoulder dress that might still be my favorite dress ever! I will include a few photos below, as they also showcase the amount of work, thought, and attention to detail that goes into each item until it’s perfect! Julia - your passion and mission to create beautiful dresses for women to feel amazing in, is 100% coming true! 

If you are looking for something to elevate your holiday gatherings this season check out the full collection here, or just visit for some major holiday inspiration in all silhouettes, prints and sizes!

I’m wearing Carmen in the shade of ruby. Both my pieces have fit true to size, and sizes range from 00 Petite - 20, which is similar to (16W-18W.)

Right now Gal Meets Glam has 40% off select dresses and styles!

The Sweatshirt Edit

Winter Layers

You know when you come across something that just fits - not just in size, but in personality?

That's how it was when my sister discovered these comfy cotton-terry pullovers at our most beloved place to shop, Anthropologie.  

I absolutely LOVE all three of these sweatshirts.

Kelly bought the "CIAO" and I immediately wanted it. I almost bought the same one, until I saw the other styles. I followed suit with "LA FEMME." 

It took little convincing for my youngest sister to get the "JOIE DE VIVRE." We all share clothes, and I know these will be on rotation, given their ease and versatility.

While the humble sweatshirt might be something most throw on to run an errand or hit up the gym, it's also become a super-chic layering staple. I love a slouchy, relaxed look for that low-maintance, off-duty vibe.

Elevated weekend wear, all-the-time wear.

I got mine in a small, and probably could have gotten away with an XS, given the "oversize" nature of the look. (I like to have a little more room!) If you are on the fence about a clever graphic sweatshirt, go for it! Not only are they comfortable, but they are stylish and cute. Perfect for when you don't know what to wear, great paired with jeans and boots/flats. Lately I've been into the juxtaposition of a flouncy skirt with a casual top. I could see any of these paired with feminine tulle and sporty sneakers.

As you can see, over the holidays my besties/sisters were in town (que: we're the three best friends that anybody could have!) and we all cozied up in our graphic sweatshirts for a little fun in the snow.

I convinced Rob to hang the tree swing and wrap it in twinkle lights. I love how it turned out! When it's all lit up it reminds me of a little doll house accessory lol. It's been too cold to go outside and play again, but I can't wait to get some sure-to-be-entertaining pictures with the kids!

It was magical to have a white Christmas, but now that the temps are dipping even lower into the negatives, I would recommend buying and wearing all three of these at once!!

Do you think sweatshirts can be stylish? Which one would you pick? I'd love to know in the comments below!

Sweet As A Georgia Peach

Jessica Wagner

The Day Tripper One-Piece Swimsuit 

This weekend we are heading to the lake to celebrate the 4th of July. I can not wait!

I was sick (again) this past week. My energy and usually happy-go-lucky outlook at an all time low… whooooo gets a cold in the summer?! So I’ve been trying to reel it in, take it slow. BUT – I must say, I’m so ready for fireworks under the stars, family BBQs and laughs shared around the campfire (and maybe a trip to the local fruit farm to pick up more of these mouth-watering peaches! They would be divine sitting on the edge of a day-drink or two!)

Lake time also means beach time, which also means: SWIM TIME! I can’t be the only one who gets excited about playing in the water?! I am SO game for jumping off the boat, riding the jet ski (Laura Croft style,) kayaking in the morning mist, and flinging the kids from the swan float in one pounce! This means I get super excited when I find quite possibly THE most perfect swimsuit brand known to womankind.

Swimsuit shopping is probably one of my favorites… and least favorites. It’s hard to strip down and take a long look in the mirror and not critique – I actually avoid the “what my head in the mirror says” and go with what feels cute and comfortable.

Each summer I like to indulge in one new luxury piece of quality swimwear. I have a drawer full suits that are mostly for fun, and over all inexpensive. I like to keep a few around for weekends on the boat, and for when we hang out at my parents hot tub come winter. While expensive swimwear might not be in everyone’s budget, I say it’s ok the splurge when you find one that makes you feel fabulous (and let’s you bend over and to fill up the kids beach bucket for the 1,000th time.)

Have you heard of Albion Fit? Let me share.

I had my eye on this sweet suit since March and picked out as a Mother’s Day gift. It’s a bit more than I would usually shell out for a suit, but I will literally live in this all summer up at the lake (and in the backyard kiddie pool – lets be real.) It’s perfect for playing in the sand with the kids. Which makes me believe it must have been designed by a knowing mama. While I love regular swim bottoms for achieving maximum tan, I much prefer retro high waisted! They have that vintage flair and keep you feeling covered, while giving the illusion of long lean legs. What I especially adore about this suit is the higher neckline. Like I mentioned, it makes bending over, catching a wave, or chasing after a little one easy and carefree. Not to mention the darling print! Peach and white stripes with a clementine floral will make a summer glow sing. Add the double bow tie at the back and you’ve got that feminine feeling I love so much. Albion swimmer comes fully lined (with a built-in shelf bra) plus this one has a removable halter strap if you want to avoid tan lines. Cute and covered and just as every bit charming.

Albion has a beautiful selection of swimwear options that are flattering, uncomplicated, and fitness/leisure friendly. It’s practical! Which is not always my first choice! LOL, but I love when I find it in a garment that makes me feel gorgeous.

I can’t wait to ride out summer chasing those tropical sunsets in this chic and timeless one-piece.
