Île du Prince Édouard || Day Two

...and on the second day, we explored.

My sister has decided to visit all of the lighthouses on Prince Edward Island (...I think that sums up to 63?) before the end of the summer. So, on Saturday we joined her on the trip to numbers 9 and 10 on the eastern point of the Island. The hour drive was filled with gorgeous scenery and lots of loud singing coming from both me and my sister.

Before we headed to the first destination, only minutes down the road, we went to the most amazing little restaurant. At first glance it looks like any other house, but the food was incredible. If you are in PEI, visit 21 Breakwater...it won't disappoint!

I am absolutely terrified of heights, so climbing up flights of winding stairs was not my idea of fun. Although, the views I got from the top were well worth it.

By the time we arrived back in Charlottetown, we were exhausted and extremely hungry. Thankfully, my sister had invited a few friends over and one was bringing lobster!

Being born and raised in the Maritimes means I should definitely have tried lobster before the age of twenty-two, right? Wrong. I usually stick to clams and scallops. So, this was a definite day of firsts. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan and the fishy taste was far too much for me, but cracking open the lobster and searching for meat was entertaining to say the least!

It was another exciting day on the island and one I won't forget anytime soon.

Île du Prince Édouard || Day One

It just sounds so much better in French, does it not?

This past weekend, my parents and I decided to take a vacation on the Island and visit my sister. It's been a few years since I crossed the long Confederation Bridge and the above first glimpse of PEI made me so excited.

Driving towards Charlottetown meant that we not only passed hundreds of farming fields, but some of the most beautiful homes as well. (Just like this one!)

Sadly, after living on the Island for almost a year, this is the first time I had stepped inside my sister's home. It is absolutely beautiful. The windows were my favourite part, especially when the sunset streamed in through the glass.

On our first night, my sister took us for a stroll along the boardwalk as the sun lowered. Five minutes from her door lies the most incredible scenery. No wonder she loves her home.

We had only been on the island for a few hours and I was already relaxed and excited for what the next two days would bring.

Dress Obsessed

Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady. - Edith Head 

Every single summer, I seem to convince myself that I don't have enough dresses...but really, can you ever have enough dresses? I think not. 

So, on that note, I decided to do a haul and show you all the newest dresses in my collection. I am a fan of dresses in all shapes, colours and lengths, as long as they fit my short frame. Also, I decided to sneak a few statement necklaces in, because (as all my readers probably know) they are my favourite!

...and if you didn't know, I have a YouTube channel!
You can find it on my "Follow Me" page, or on YouTube at KateLatelyTV.

I am absolutely in love with these purchases and plan on wearing them over and over again this summer. Let me know, what's your favourite summer purchase?
