Bow Back Jumpsuit - Gal Meets Glam

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Just in time for the holidays - the newest Gal Meets Glam collection is here to help you get holiday red-y! And it’s EVERYTHING! From dresses to jumpsuits, Julia Engle has designed joyful pieces with the woman who will be wearing them in mind! Festive colors, playful cuts, oversized bows and plenty of sparkle, each item is sure to inspire, delight, and infuse happiness into your holiday celebrations!

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!

5 Summer Trends You Should Know & Try

Top Knot Boutique: Your Best Friend For Summer

Summer trends go way beyond floral, although I must admit I love blending in with a wildflower garden.  

Allow me to introduce you to Top Knot Boutique, an affordable online boutique, currated by my friends and fellow busy mamas who are on a mission to help women balance life’s many roles with fashionable ease.

I’m so smitten!

Top Knot Boutique or TKB is all about the reinvention of good ol’ classics with effortless on-trend aesthetics. Each piece featured is hand-picked by Hannah and Anita. (Read more about theses two lovelies and the "behind the scenes" on their blog here!)

Top Knot hits that sweet spot when it comes to comfort and clothing for morning, noon, and night. Laid-back, cute and easy. They carry the softest everyday pieces that brilliantly transition from work to weekend. What I love about boutique style clothing is the attention to detail. They make it easy for you to find an item that has my three musts: affordable, exclusive, and compliment worthy.

Top Knot has a great selection of slouchy tops with artful touches, timeless dresses that are so very much of the times, and that unexpected tomboy-sexy that will elevate your outfit top-knot ballerina bun and all!

Scroll on to see my selection of the ones that I’m keeping on my list of “must buys” for summer/vacation holiday 2017 and let me know which trend is your favorite! 


Stripes


What is a summer trend forecast without beloved stripes?! This season the print comes in all forms, but my favorites are in contrasting blue and white hues!

This open-shoulder top with little bell sleeves is sure to make you belle of the BBQ! I’m already planning a vineyard picnic with this sweet fitting cutie in mind. So easy. I paired mine with cream and lace shorts, but any type of denim would work just as seamlessly.

Wearing TKB first look exclusive! (Keep an eye out for this is a soon-to-be new arrival!)


Ruffles

Shoulder baring tops have taken to the next-level with a few ultra femme and frilly touches.

The color of clementines, peaches, and tangerines, this darling top will make a summer glow sing. Doll it up with a skirt, or pair it down with dark-wash high waisted denim, this look is grown up and girlie.


Blush Pink

The new neutral.

These knotted mule sneaks are the ultimate summer companion. Way to combine super comfy, supportive and adorable, TKB!  All in a shade that leans towards the earthier end of the pink pallet - that hint of warmth makes them subtle enough to wear with all! (Only $25!)


Distressed

I’ve been seeing this trend everywhere and am so drawn to the disregarded edginess of it. I do find it a little tricky – the distressing has to be done just right  – or this look can come across disheveled. This one has a high-low vented hem with a tattered design. The soft pink color and oversize comfy distressing hit all the right places!

Look 2:

I had to style this distressed top two ways (I just like it so much) – above, with heels to show you guys how easy it can be to style something like this up, and one with my sneaks and the dreamiest TKB kimono. This kimono might be one of my favorite pieces in the shop. It can be worn as a swim cover up, or to add a light layer of interest. The sheer shades of pink, tassels and the teal accent trim are on point!

Graphic Statements/Slogans

Unless you’ve living under a rock, you should know by now that wordy tees  are absolutely everywhere. From subtle word stitching to instagram friendly “hashtags” this trend is hard not to mention.

I am in love with this tank. It has ALL the good vibes! The fit is so cool – it’s cut to flatter. Just right for that “little to no effort look.” I know that’s how I like to get dressed!

(TKB also carries cute slogan baseball caps and hats. They have some new arrivals I can’t wait to get my hands on!)

Rose Tinted

Jessica Wagner

Valentine's Day Casual

With Valentines Day three days away it’s the perfect time to pull together your girliest shades of pink for a head to toe pop of wow.

Whether you spend the day with a significant other, girlfriends, family, or yourself it’s a great excuse to wear something that makes you feel special and to spread the love.

This look flaunts a playful silhouette with graceful textures and hues that say, “made you blush!”

For an intimate yet relaxed look, take a lesson in layering with monochrome pale-rose and butter-soft knits, which always make a chic paring.

In this post here I talked about how monochromatic outfitting is an easy way to make a major style statement.

Today’s look is about a much softer color story in sheer tulle with whips of cream. (Trench last seen here, and bag last seen here.)

If you want to see life through rose -colored lenses, (last seen here) keeping a positive opinion of yourself is a crucial first step. Ever notice how a color can brighten your mood? An optimistic perception begins and ends with you. So you can start by dressing the part.

For me, that shade is usually something bright and fun.

The correlation between your outer presence and what’s on the inside are totally related. I know I feel my best when I look my best (that’s not to say I’m not at my best when dressed brooding, dark and moody.)

Try it. Set aside some time this week and dote on yourself (inside or out.) The other day I was feeling bored with life/myself and rather all-around uninspired, so I took 10 minutes to try out a new hair style. You would be amazed what a cute braid can do for your frame of mind (while exercise may be the best way to release those endorphins I find my spirit can be lifted by the simplest of pleasures!)

You ladies know what I am talking about! A fresh mani/pedi, new haircut, maybe even a new shade of lipstick. If you don’t have the cash to spend on the special treatment, do what I did and play around with your look at home. Put on a hat (princess crown) whatever makes you smile. For me, I say give me all the pink, and not just on Valentine’s Day. 

Positive thinking can be so easily influenced. If all else fails you can come borrow my pink shades, as I’m pretty sure rose-colored life is the best life.
