Flirty and Thriving

I was kind of thinking that my pink phase was just that: a phase. With every passing season though, it seems to be here to stay! When I got a peek at the lookbook for Gal Meet Glam’s latest collection, I was immediately drawn to this darling dress.

I used to shy away from the palette thinking it was too similar to my fair skin. Maybe it’s just feeling more comfortable with how I am or maybe, well I don’t know what, but I’m not so afraid of wearing the color anymore.

The dress has smocking on the waist, neckline, and wrists creating a whimsical and flowy silhouette that hugs at all the right places. It’s simply pretty. I wore this last week in the city for an afternoon tea and felt extra feminine and a touch flirty.

I bought these flats from J. Crew Factory a few weeks ago. I absolutely love the style. They are relatively comfortable, though I wanted to highlight that they definitely took a little breaking in. I wore them for about two hours and everything felt fine and then got a couple of blisters on my heel. I think over time they should loosen up a little bit and in the meantime, a clear bandaid helps ease in the breaking in period.

I also want to note that they’re definitely a knock off of the Tabitha Simmons flats and I like the style so much that I’m tempted to splurge on the tan color to wear throughout the fall.

I am obsessed with the GMG fall collection, and I keep coming back to this gorgeous dress! Everything about it is perfect for the season now! I have also been eyeing some GMG sweater dresses! Julia did an amazing job with this collection 🙂 Happy Sunday, Carly!

The dress is definitely very pretty and so fitting for high tea! I’ve had the same experience with pink- I stayed away from it for it’s ultra-feminine reputation, but the past couple years I’ve found it to be pretty versatile. Maybe it’s the millennial pink trend and the various shades that are now available?
