The dress I wouldn’t shut up about has finally made it to the blog. Another amazing Gal Meets Glam Collection piece that I’m so happy I bought. I took to Instagram Stories to ask you all which dress you thought I should wear to my friends’ semi-formal wedding a couple weeks back. After tons of great feedback, many of you said this navy number was a no brainer. Then the bride to be left a very interesting comment on my Instagram post. The bridesmaids are also wearing NAVY! She gave me her blessing to also wear navy. So long as none of them were wearing navy midi dresses with bows, I was okay with it!

I decided to do all black accessories with it. I did end up swapping out the earrings for these gold ones though. After seeing these photos, I realized it was a LOT going on around the shoulder/ear area and decided to keep it simple. But having the black heels and bag were perfect. Wearing this dress was so comfy and easy. The pockets made it feel even more comfortable. How do pockets manage to do that?! And these shoes continue to amaze me for how comfortable they are. They’re super old from Express and have been my go to behind these nude ones.

PS see some of my other favorite Gal Meets Glam dresses here and this pretty lilac one I styled last week.
