THIS DRESS. I feel like a princess in this dress, guys. It’s so free-flowing and soft and prettyyyyy and I could wear it every day if it was socially acceptable and whatnot. But I’m guessing it’s not, so I won’t. But seriously, the fact that it’s under $30 is pretty great, too. And it is a solid, great quality dress, which was surprising to me!
We headed to the rose garden last night, since the weather had finally cooled down (it had gotten to 100 during the day- ugh!) and we just meandered through the rows and rows of roses (say that ten times fast!) and Sam was in awe, it was adorable. He actually kept reaching for them, and after pulling most of the petals off of a few, we decided it was better that he just look and not touch. ;) Thankfully he was just as happy with that. I do so love that boy’s curiosity, though, and watching him experience new things each day reminds me to appreciate all of the little things in life.
I love lazy summer evenings like this, where we have no plans and just kind of slowly and happily enjoy the world around us. I’m noting that we need to do this more often. It’s kind of the best thing ever.
What’s your favorite no-plans activity?
That place looks absolutely gorgeous! My go-to for planless evenings is a walk on the canal outside of our apartment. It’s in the middle of downtown Indianapolis, but gives off the feeling of being so secluded. I love it!
That sounds so lovely! The perfect summer night, indeed.
Beautiful- you and the roses! :) It’s so fun watching your kids explore and discover new things. And slow easy summer nights are the best!
Aw you are so sweet! :) And I agree- slow easy summer nights > anything.

Love the top of that dress!
Isn’t it so gorgeous?! I love it too!
You are gorgeous! I’ve looked at that dress before, but wasn’t sure of the quality. I think you’ve sold me on that dress!
I was very surprised at the quality!! Definitely recommend! :)
Hi Katie! Remember me? It’s been a while since I have read your blog. I still think it’s the best! Sam is so cute and you are pretty as always. So fathers day was another hard sad day for me but I am glad it’s over. I was thinking of a career change and needed your advice hope you can help me. I will email you!
Laci!!! So good to hear from you again! :) Of course I remember you! I’m so sad to hear that father’s day was tough- I think it always will be. Those holidays (and birthdays…) will always remind us of those we’re missing dearly. <3
Hi Kate wanted to ask you if you have ever gotten clothes from romwe.com? There are many similarities with sheinside and just wanted to know if the quality was good?
I have never gotten anything from Romwe, but it seems like an identical shop. I would say, the items are definitely hit or miss- sometimes the quality is okay, sometimes better, sometimes just awful. But also, the prices are so cheap it’s almost worth it to try and hope for the best! Ha ;) But yeah, I’d say if you’re looking for good quality clothes, I wouldn’t have high hopes. With that being said, this dress in this post is surprisingly great quality! So like I said, it’s a toss-up!
EKK! SO much love for that dress! Gorgeous flowers! I wish we had something like that around here!
Aww thanks Kelly! I do feel pretty lucky to live so close to such a gorgeous rose garden! :) People get married there- and I totally see why!
Beautiful pictures. Love the roses.
That dress looks sooooo comfortable.
Aw thanks Catherine! It was such a pretty place to wander through!
I love that dress. Great place to take photos. I see your hubby likes the Red sox.
Thanks girly! :) And it totally looks like Red Sox, but it’s actually a Giants shirt- he is a BIG fan haha!
