When Life Gives You Lemons...

I own a lot of lemon print items of clothing so, chances are, I have probably used the title of today's post before! Well, I love lemons and lemon print and the saying "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" could not be more perfect for the situation we are all going through, so why not use the title again? Recently, I purchased this fun lemon print dress online at H&M. While I have a couple other lemon print dresses, I was drawn to this particular one because I love the oversized print and the playful, puffy sleeves. It is most definitely the perfect summer dress!

As I mentioned, the saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" is what we are all living by or at least trying to live by in these difficult times. Personally, I am taking this saying both literally and figuratively. In the literal sense, we have a lemon tree in our back yard so we have been making a lot of delicious, refreshing lemonade lately! In the figurative sense, I am getting time to do a lot of things I didn't have the ability to do beforesimple things like watching a movie late at night, learning how to cook a dish I've never made before and, yes, making lemonade! I am definitely enjoying the simple things in life more than I use to and learning to be more resourceful and less wasteful, which might be the sweet silver lining to a sour situation.

  1. That is such a fun dress and I really like the matching of the green bag with it! :) It's nice you have a lemon tree too! We have a mango tree and I always love when we can have our first mango of summer! :)

    Hope that you have had a good weekend! We had a picnic on Saturday taking advantage of the relaxed restrictions, and then had a lovely Mother's Day :)

  2. Katie, what a fabulous dress and perfect for making lemonade out of this lemony situation we are all in! I adore lemon prints but don’t wear them because yellow is not good on me. But if I could find a lime print dress, I might be a very happy girl! Thanks for linking up with me.


  3. Such a gorgeous dress! I love fruity prints! Thanks for linking up!
