The Floral Dress You Need To Pack For Your Next Vacation

Gal Meets Glam Lauren Dress Hanalei Bay Hawaii

To kick off the first of many, many posts from our amazing Hawaii trip this past April, I am so excited to be featuring a dress by my favorite blogger and girl crush Julia Engel and her dreamy new dress line Gal Meets Glam

I owe a lot to Julia. She taught me just how much I had to learn about style (goodbye boring working girl wardrobe), inspired me to start a blog (hello Never Settle Travel), and continues to inspire me daily with her beautiful content. One thing we've always had in common though is our love for flowers and dresses and sunny days in beautiful new places.

When I received the Gal Meets Glam lookbook in my email, I just knew the Lauren dress, a beautiful floral midi dress, was meant to be worn in beautiful Hanalei on the island of Kauai. The dress line released literally just in time for our Hawaii trip... I basically picked this little number up on the way to the airport. My favorite part of the dress is the covered buttons down the front. I LOVE a covered button.

We stayed at the super fancy St Regis Princeville in Kauai, where I received so many compliments on this dress. I will post more about the St Regis in another post, but I can't recommend it enough on your first visit to Kauai or for any special occasion. The view of Hanalei Bay is just incredible.

Visit Gal Meets Glam and Nordstrom to shop more of Julia's beautiful dress collection, which releases new dresses every month. I looove the Annie and the Jane dresses from her May collection, and I wishhh I had somewhere to wear the gorgeous Rosemary in cherry blossom. I'm sure my invite to the Royal Wedding just got lost in the mail, right?? Let me know which Gal Meet Glam dress you end up getting so we can be twins!

Also, I can't mention Hanalei and the north shore of Kauai without letting you know that they experienced a tragic flooding event in mid-April, shortly before we arrived. The community has bounced back so quickly, it's inspiring, and you will have no problems visiting the area now. However, many people have a long road ahead of them before their homes and businesses will be properly restored. If you would like to donate to their cause, please visit Malama Kauai or the Red Cross Hawaii to help.
