Loving Lemons Lately: A Ruffle Flounce Dress

Happy Thursday! With the Nordstrom sale still going strong, I keep forgetting it’s not fall yet…except when I walk outside. It’s over 100 degrees here, so that’s a quick reminder! Lately, I’m loving all things lemon (including/especially lemonade), so this is the perfect dress for me to wear now. You know the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?” This has been true for me. The hubby has been so busy studying for his boards, so I am trying to stay positive and look at the big picture (graduation). He takes boards today and he FINALLY won’t be as busy.
This lemon dress is perfect for summer and incorporates the ruffle flounce trend. It is one size (fits sizes 4-8), which worried me, but it worked since it’s not designed to be really fitted. I also want to tell you all about RoseGal, which is where I ordered this dress. This is not sponsored at all, but I decided I didn’t love one of my dresses, so I went to return it and the store said to just keep it and donate it instead. Now that’s customer service!

    Hi Courtney, 100 degrees will convince you its not fall alright! I am loving lemonade too, We make a lot of it having 4 kids. This dress has a very pretty print , and add the cut and ruffled flounce it is perfect. The price is hard to beat! That is so awesome of rosegal to let you donate the dress! I love the earrings and bag to complete the stylish look you have. I love your pretty pedicure too btw. I am so happy for you that yoi will get a lot more couple time with your husband. It cant be easy for either of you but there is light at the end of the tunnel! Have a wonderful weekend Dear, hugs, Terri xo.

    I’m currently in love with Lemon Dresses and have my eye on one from H&M. I’m holding off though, as I’m hoping it will eventually go into a sale once the autumn/winter clothes start appearing….but there’s still a possibility I cave in and get it before then! Especially after seeing how cute yours looks!
