Today, I’m excited to introduce you to the most versatile dress in my closet right now: the Kate Dress from Gal Meets Glam Collection (here’s a more budget-friendly option in a similar style). It looks elegant, and it is, but the material has just the right amount of stretch, which makes it far more comfortable than you’d expect. I especially love this dress for traveling, because the crepe fabric is so comfortable, but it also has a thickness and quality to it that I know will hold up no matter how many long days of exploring I wear it for over the years. Plus, it has POCKETS. I normally carry a stylish backpack with me (something like this) to keep my hands free when I’m traveling, which doesn’t give me as much quick access to my belongings as a crossbody or handbag, so I love wearing something with pockets that I can slide my phone and essentials into when necessary.
I went with the “Retro Blue” shade because I knew it would be something that I could wear throughout every season. In August, I wore it when I was exploring New Bern, NC, and I just styled it again with a bit more of a pre-fall touch during a recent trip to Charleston, SC. I plan to keep styling it throughout fall with my faux suede drape jacket along and swapping my favorite block heeled sandals for an ankle bootie or loafer. As we turn towards the winter months, it’s also a dress I can style with tights and a knee-high or thigh-high boot (if I could ever find a pair that fit my muscular legs, haha).
The Kate fit and flare dress with pockets is available on the Gal Meets Glam Collection site in cream, rosetta pink, and retro blue; at Nordstrom in cream, at Neiman Marcus in rosetta, and Dillards in rosetta and blue. I sized down to a 2 since Gal Meets Glam dresses tend to run big on me, but I probably could have gone with either the 2 or the 4. This is a timeless staple that I promise you won’t regret adding to your closet!
