My first socially distant dinner out called for my favorite summer Gal Meets Glam dress. My friend and I headed out to Boston’s North End and had Italian at Trattoria II Panino. It was a wonderful dinner, we sat outside and I felt perfectly safe in regards to COVID-19 precautions. Our waiter was so kind, and it was really nice to get out and support one of the many restaurants that have opened up in the area.
My dress is from one of last years Gal Meets Glam collections, but it’s available in select styles here. The brand’s founder, Julia Berolzheimer, announced a few weeks ago that her line is ending, so the dresses that are still available on the website and in select retailers will be the last! If you happen to come across one in your size I highly recommend purchasing the piece, the quality is exceptional for the price and the designs are feminine, classic, and timeless. I have three GMG dresses and know I’ll be wearing them for years to come.
Here are my favorite Gal Meets Glam dresses that you can wear if you chose to partake in outdoor dining this season.
Chiffon scarves are perfect to pair with your outdoor dining look for cooler summer nights. I often wear mine around my neck as so, but I love the look of styling it as a shawl as well.
I purchased my white flower earrings from T.J Maxx, but I found an almost exact look alike on Amazon here. My shoes are Toms from a few years ago. I never find myself loving Toms, but these heeled sandals are so comfortable and cute. Since they are a simple tan hue it is easy to style them with almost any piece in your summer wardrobe, day or night. I have a hard time finding shoes that are comfortable to walk and stand in for long periods of time, but these check all the boxes. Here are a pair of Toms wedges that I love.
