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?

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

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?
