When Life Gives You Lemons | Lemon Dress and Straw Bag
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
I wrote about how much I wanted this dress on a Coffee Chat post in the past. You guys are the biggest enablers of my shopping habit! I'm so glad I got it though (and on sale!) The lemon print is so different from the ones I've seen. This dress was technically called a "lemon orchard" print and I quite like it.
Lemon has been the print of this summer and I am here for it! I like the subtlety of the print on this dress though. The lemon is more muted and a golden ochre color than a bright yellow. Yellow is kind of hard for me to wear due to the undertones of my skin. I like how this dress uses the lemons and flowers sparingly so as not to overwhelm. I also really like how the sleeves puff out and have little ribbons you can tie - it's classic and dainty and I'm all about it! When I read the review of this dress, there was one negative that stated that this dress is quite short. I am on the petite side (I'm 5'3") so instead of ordering the dress in the petite size like I normally would, I got it in the regular size. It's a perfect length but I can see how it would have felt too short if I got it in my usual petite size. If you're taller than me, it's just something to keep in mind if you would also like this dress.

I got my winking eye straw tote in the middle of summer when my friends and I made plans for a beach/tubing trip. Since then, this bag has been super handy. It's not one of those trendy small round crossbody bags but I do love me a roomy tote because of how much it can fit. It's perfect for taking with me poolside, it's great for a day around town, and they match all mu summer dresses, like this lemon dress! They don't sell the exact one at H&M anymore but I'm listing a few similar options.
