Good riddance to you, May

This post comes as we turn the page on a month I wasn't sorry to leave behind. From  cancelling Brad's 30th birthday celebration when he came down with the flu to our car repairs to many, many long hours at the office dealing with difficult files, resulting in skipped workouts and 10pm dinners, I'm hoping June has better things in store. Then Friday I learned of a terrible tragedy to befall a beautiful family. Please think a good thought for them. It had me rattled and it's times like these when your own problems are put in glaring perspective. I hugged B pretty tight that night and remembered how many things I DO have to be thankful for.

This outfit is from a couple of months ago; I wore it to a bachelorette. The photos are pixelated and the colours are off, but you can blame my brilliant idea to take photos in a dark, windowless restaurant bathroom. This dress been a favourite for going out and running errands ever since I bought it about 3 years ago. I love the lace detailing and it makes a fantastic layering piece.

  1. Sounds like you had a rough month. Finally time to turn the page and hope for better this month! I do love that dress, super flattering and the lace detail is really pretty!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you had such a rough month, Kat... it happens to the best of us, and I'm wishing you a much more pleasant June. {And thinking of all of the families who experienced tragedy in May, too.} This dress is absolutely lovely on you, the lace detail on the back is just darling.

  3. kat, you look totally gorgeous, like usual. the lace tights, the curls in your hair, the hints of lace in that lovely dress are all wonderful. so bring on a new month that's better than last month. however, it's getting too hot, and summer has just started. oh, and to answer your question, yes i do like red in the summer. it's very commonly worn on the 4th of july holiday. i just wear whatever colors i feel like year round.

  4. poooooooopy May. I am hoping that June is better for the both of us! :) And I think you look smashtacular in that dress! I love the details and the cut.
