Happy Monday! I am beyond excited to be home this week and return to a somewhat normal routine. This past weekend in Chicago was, in a word, perfect. On Friday, we out for dinner and a movie and saw Oceans 8. Loved the cast, enjoyed the story line, but, overall, it missed the mark for me – oh well! On Saturday, we worked on things around the house, went out to lunch, and then met up with friends in Old Town to enjoy drinks and dinner on their rooftop. They have the perfect view of the skyline, and the weather couldn’t have been better! Sunday morning included a fun brunch event hosted by Chase Sapphire at The Hampton Social (one of my favorite Chicago spots), where we were able to chat and catch up with John, Maura, Dan, and Katrina. We had a blast, and the food was amazing as always. Afterwards, we took a few photos for the blog, including this gorgeous Gal Meets Glam Collection Gemma Dress.
As I shared in April, I am a huge fan of the new Gal Meets Glam Collection. Julia, Thomas, and their team have done an incredible job of launching a line of dresses that work for so many occasions, especially for the office and everyday life. When they reached out to partner again (this time for the June collection), I was beyond thrilled. After scanning the most recent lookbook, the Gal Meets Glam Collection Gemma dress was the first one to grab my attention. It’s so lovely in person. The fabric is incredible soft and wrinkle-resistant, and the short sleeves make it easy to wear to the office, even on a cool day. Moreover, I love the 1940’s-inspired cut of the dress. I found it to be fairly true to size, but if you are kind of in-between, I recommend sizing up rather than down. I’m also loving this red and white floral dress, this bateau-neck option, this jacquard fit and flare dress, and this pink floral sundress. See the full collection here and here!
