The blogger behind Gal Meets Glam takes our fall watches for a style spin.


If you’re in search of romantic wardrobe inspiration, chic decorating ideas, or the most Instagram-worthy vacation spots, look no further than Gal Meets Glam, a style and travel site that serves up a curated roster of fashionable eye candy. Julia Engel, the San Francisco-based blogger behind the posts, has a passion for easy, feminine ensembles topped off with bold, colorful accessories.

Just in time for fall, we asked Engel to put together her favorite Michael Michael Kors looks her way, working with a watch as a centerpiece each time. See her take on laid-back afternoon dressing below and read on for all the stylish things that make her tick.

Q: What’s your favorite way to style a watch?
I love to let it be the statement piece. I usually keep my jewelry to a minimum, with only very delicate and dainty pieces. A watch adds a bit of masculinity and boldness.
Q: What are the 3 pieces in your closet that you really love?
I pretty much live in dresses 90% of the time. I love a beautiful coat that can be worn year round in San Francisco and a flowy midi skirt.
Q: You are running late and have only 5 minutes to pull together an outfit. What do you wear?
A shirtdress, flats and a cashmere cardigan.


Q: Where do you like to spend your downtime?
At home with my friends and family. We travel so often that being home feels like an extra-special treat now.
Q: What’s the best time of day to take photos for Gal Meets Glam?
I love shooting at either sunrise or sunset when the light is golden.
Q: Name the most stylish happy hour spots in San Francisco.
My girlfriends and I love West Coast Wine•Cheese on Union St. or Rose’s Cafe.”
