lemon fashion


If you’re a reader of this blog (or you just have a set of working eyes), you know by my layout that I love lemons. The color scheme and graphics on my blog have consistently incorporated the sour fruit, and was part of the inspiration for the name, Life Unsweetened (lemons aren’t sweet, get it?) I also happen to absolutely love the taste and smell of lemons in real life. I’m the weird girl who after finishing her water at a restaurant will suck on the lemon wedge that was provided with my water. My boyfriend still thinks I’m crazy after all these years. In addition, yellow is my favorite color. While I have a few lemon-y items of my own (including a cute Target beach bag from last season), I’m always looking to add more to my wardrobe. Here are some of my favorite lemon clothes, accessories and products.

  1. Alice and Olivia has this awesome lemon skirt that I love but it’s just a tad too expensive for a skirt. It’s funny I always put lemon or lime in my water and coke, and suck on it as well. I also use lime or lemon my skin to clear out my dark spots. But that pillow you choose is my fave. So cute.

  2. So cute! I had a lemon dress in middle school and it was literally my favorite piece of clothing for as long as it fit!

  3. This is such a cute print! I’m the opposite of you…I can’t stand the taste/smell of lemons but I’d wear this print! Happy Friday!

  4. That pillow reminds me of a Dolce & Gabbana skirt I had years ago, in college! I loved it and wore it absolutely everywhere! Now I don’t even know where it is (although, it would probably be way too small for me now)!

  5. I LOVE this post! The very first photo of the girl in the retro looking dress is my face. And of course Blair Waldorf is one of my style inspirations so I love her outfit too. I also love that lemon print shopper! I love drinking warm lemon water in the morning but I never thought of how cute lemon prints can be!

  6. Yes to everything here! I love that short poofy lemon print skirt SO much. At restaurants, my water always becomes the lemon disposal location for everyone at the table who doesn’t want theirs. xo

  7. I totally eat lemon slices like they are apples all. the. time! My favorite item would have to be that lemon skirt with the pic of Leighton/Blair Waldorf as my inspo. Love.

  8. I’ve actually started drinking lemon water a lot to help keep me from drinking soda + to get the extra health benefits! This prints are all adorable! LOVE Leighton Meester’s skirt!

  9. I also think lemons are wonderful! The colour is just vibrant and happy and the fragrance is to die for! And I like the flavour, too. 🙂
    Beautiful selection of, well, everything lemony – the iphone case is so pretty.
