I can’t even tell you how happy I am to say, “HAPPY MAY!”  Feels good, right?  One step closer to summer.  I had a pretty lazy weekend, but did get a bit of shopping done.  Luckily I found this lilac colored wrap dress, which gave me major heart eyes.  Whenever I find something that I can see wearing on dozens of occasions, I must buy it.  This is one of those things.  For reference, I’m wearing a size small.

A few other updates:

1) I finished ’13 Reasons Why’.  I really have no words, other than tragic, heartbreaking, and eye-opening.  If you haven’t seen it, watch it.

2) Adam and I watched the new comedy “Why Him?”.  If you like movies similar to Stepbrothers and The Hangover, you should go ahead and rent this one.

3) I’m in full vacation planning mode!  It’s definitely time for another international trip, and I think I’ve narrowed it down to my top three.  BUT… I want to hear where you guys recommend first before I tell you what I’m thinking…

My must-haves are a beach, adventure, and somewhere in the Caribbean or Central America.  Thoughts?!

    This dress is so cute, Katie. It’s like the perfect dress because you could literally wear it for anything.

    I also finished watching 13 Reasons Why…it’s so intense, eh! I thought it was great, especially for high school student…they all need to watch this show!

    Vacation planning is fun – if you’re looking for inspiration, western Canada is absolutely beautiful (British Columbia OR Alberta) I’m going to Banff in a couple week – google Lake Louis, Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake. You will die. Also going to New Zealand in September.

    Looking forward to hearing where you’re going 🙂

      Thanks so much Caitlin! Yes, that show is definitely intense. It’s extremely raw and real and I think everyone should watch it and educate themselves!

      Western Canada is definitely on my bucket list! I’ve seen some pictures of Moraine Lake that make me swoon! And New Zealand! THAT IS AMAZING!

    What an adorable dress! I love the shade. And I love that you wore heels to the garden center – I’m so guilty of doing that too.

    Just finished, ’13 Reasons Why’ last night, what a season, agree–heartbreaking and emotional.

    I was totally going to suggest Italy but then you said Central American or Caribbean 😛
