August always feels like a transitional month to me. No matter how many years I’ve been out of school, by the end of summer, I’m ready to update my daily routines, create some new habits and traditions, and freshen up my wardrobe. Of course, with Baby B’s impending due date, plenty of things are about to change in our lives! Even in years when such a major event wasn’t on our horizon, though, I love making small changes in August to set myself up for a productive, positive, and memorable season ahead. Our August Collection is our first hint at fall for the year, and even though these dresses and jumpsuits work perfectly for these last days of summer, they’ll also carry you well into autumn.
Especially in Charleston, where it still feels like summer for at least another month, the first thing to change in my closet is always the color palette. From blush to burgundy and sage to evergreen, our August Collection highlights all of the dreamiest hues of late summer. You’ll also find a fabulous mix of autumn-inspired patterns in our new styles, from the fall floral of Tegan, to the soft plaid of Kelly, to the subtle jacquard of Cassandra. For those first few chilly mornings and evenings, simply slip our Tamara sweater, which comes in two rich colors, over your dress of choice. With such an effortlessly classic combination at your fingertips, you’ll be ready for any adventure the new season may bring.
To capture this Collection, our team headed to 620 Prince, an exquisitely restored bed and breakfast in historic Georgetown, South Carolina. Between its elegant, but cozy, rooms and beautiful property (which also served as a backdrop for many of our photos), it made the perfect home away from home for a few days. We also shot at the nearby Brookgreen Gardens, an expansive botanical garden. Less than a two-hour drive from Charleston, both locations absolutely belong on your future weekend getaway list if you live nearby!
As always, you can find our August Collection on our website, at our major retailers (Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Anthropologie, and more), and at over 100 boutiques across the country and around the world. We can’t wait to see the pieces you choose to welcome fall in on Instagram—use the #gmgonme and #gmgcollection hashtags when you share photos of your GMGC looks for a chance to appear on our feed or in our new customer round-up posts!
