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!

    I absolutely love the colour of your dress! It’s beautiful! As for your trip, I’d say Central America. You can find some really cheap packages right now.

      Thank you Allison! It’s such a nice fit – a new staple for my closet! And thank you, we figured when it’s cold and rainy outside, a greenhouse is the way to go! 🙂

      Thanks Kelly, you’re so sweet! And that’s amazing! I was in Cayman a few years ago and it is STUNNING! The beaches there are the prettiest I’ve ever seen. You’ll have a great time!

    Hey there!! Just found your blog today–I love that you shot this in a garden centre, so gorgeous!!

    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 😛

    Wow Katie, that dress is stunning, it compliments your figure so well. You’re beautiful 🙂

    This is such a pretty post! Absolutely love your dress and these photos. And a trip somewhere tropical sounds heavenly. I enjoyed going to Hawaii in February, but I’m already dreaming of visiting Tahiti or Bali! 🙂
