Making Lemonade Out of Lemon-Print Dresses

One of the TWELVE dresses I ordered from my Sale Dresses I’m Eyeing + Buying post yesterday showed up today + I love it SO much we snapped a few quick picks. Alternate title: Depressed & Well-Dressed. {Why else would someone order SO many dresses at once? That’s bananas, right? See what I did there?}. Anywho, let’s focus on making lemon-print dresses out of lemons, shall we?

Quite frankly, I’m not sure what’s the cause of my slump in mood.

But I do know that my attempt to turn my frown upside down via shopping does actually work (sometimes).

I think there is a whole theory about depression (or at least boredom) and novelty.

Meaning doing new things (or in my case, getting new things) can increase happiness.

Don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying buy a dress and all your problems/chemical imbalances go away, but there is definitely something to retail therapy, don’t you think? Not deep lasting joy, but a temporary jolt of happiness.

And I’m all for a jolt!

I mean, just look: At the beginning of this photo shoot, I was slumped. And by the end, I was reaching for the sun. Hmmm…perhaps actual sunlight + Vitamin D helped too. Whatever works, right?

How have you been feeling lately? 

p.s. I’m on a HUGE yellow kick lately — so sunny, bright and uplifting, so expect to see more pretty yellow finds soon. Speaking of, I LOVE these Lisi Lerch yellow tassel earrings!
