Even nearly a decade into blogging, sharing my favorite things with readers has never lost its thrill. I’m constantly keeping an eye out for new items and styles that resonate with me, and have always been dedicated to only sharing the pieces I love most. Seeing readers share my excitement over products like an effortless dress, the most versatile spring/summer shoes, and even a handy stroller fan is one of the reasons I’m so passionate about Gal Meets Glam. As we dive into 2020, I rounded up the most popular products from each month of 2019, along with an extra list of runner-up reader favorites. Let me know if you picked up any of these items for yourself, and if you love them as much as I do!

Dyson Airwrap

Thomas surprised me with a Dyson Airwrap for Christmas 2018, and by January, I was officially a convert. It’s the best tool I’ve ever used for creating maximum volume and achieving a professional-level blowout from home. If you prefer a more straightforward hairdryer, the Dyson Supersonic is a great option as well.


Castaner Joyce T Wedge Espadrilles

I loved this elegant, pointed-toe version of my go-to espadrilles so much, I picked them up in multiple colors. I wear them constantly throughout the spring and summer!


Gal Meets Glam Collection Shirtdress

There is something so effortlessly chic about a classic shirtdress that can go from day to night. Our March bestseller was a Gal Meets Glam Collection shirtdress with a similar silhouette to this one, which is still available. Style it with flats for the office or espadrilles for date night.


Gal Meets Glam Collection Courtney Dress

Once again, the Courtney dress was a Gal Meets Glam Collection customer favorite for the entire year! It’s such a timeless, easy-to-wear maxi that I constantly gravitate toward. Find similar styles here and here.

Packable Sunhat

We spent lots of time at the beach during the warmer months, so I was rarely without a sunhat on hand. This packable one, complete with a sweet bow, was one of my summer wardrobe staples.


Cotton T-Shirt Midi Dress

In the height of Charleston’s hot summer, all I wanted to wear were effortless cotton dresses like this one. I usually paired my similar Madewell dress with sandals for work or white tennis sneakers like these for running errands.


Floral Printed Laundry Basket

While doing some pre-baby nesting and organizing at home, we found these adorable cloth bins from Target. They’ve proved a practical, but still aesthetically pleasing, way to keep our closets and storage areas in order.


Stroller Fan

Long morning walks have been one of our favorite activities to do with Clementine since the week she was born. When it was still hot outside, we relied on this handy stroller fan to keep her cool and comfortable for miles.

Knee-High Boots

We used these boots at our fall Gal Meets Glam Collection shoot and loved the way they complemented so many of our dresses! They come in a variety of colors that will pair just as perfectly with winter outfits.


Smartcuts: The Breakthrough Power of Lateral Thinking

This book is one of our all-time favorite business books, so we were excited to see so many people pick it up after Thomas shared his list of recommendations. We hope the takeaways have been as impactful for you as they have been for us.


Fleece Half-Zip Hoodie

It doesn’t get much cozier than this Outdoor Voices fleece half-zip hoodie. It’s perfect for cooler days paired with comfortable jeans or with joggers for a more athletic look.


Barbour Quilted Jacket

Barbour has always been one of my favorite jacket brands since their pieces are so versatile and high-quality. This quilted style looks great paired with everything from jeans to dresses, and can even be monogrammed!
