The Most Dreamy For Love & Lemons Dress

September 08, 2016

When it comes to dresses, I find that you can never have too many. You always need a dress for special occasions and if you find one you love, you know it's not going to be a waste of money. We came across this For Love & Lemons dress when shopping in Montauk this past weekend and honestly, the pictures do not do it justice. Between the bell sleeves, lace cut outs, and floral embroidery.... this dress is truly a romantic, bohemian dream.

I have to say one of the great things about the "new" Montauk is that there are a lot of good stores now when there used to be absolutely nothing. When I was little and we would spend our Summers in Montauk, if you wanted to shop somewhere affordable, you had to drive all the way to Bridgehampton Commons! I came across Girltauk on Instagram and was swooning over their clothing. Before this weekend I had only been in there once but when I saw that they were having 50% off all of their Summer clothing, I rounded the troops bright and early so we could get in there before all of the good stuff was gone.

When we walked in we were greeted by Lisa, one of the two sisters who owns the store. She made our shopping experience so enjoyable and was everything a sales associate should be and more. She was polite, friendly, and not pushy when it came to selling the clothes (huge pet peeve of mine). She directed us right to the section of sale clothes and helped pick out pieces that she thought I would like and not just clothes from the expensive brands either. There wasn't really anyone besides us in the store so she was hanging out with my mom and my boyfriend's mom while I was trying everything on. She offered honest feedback if she didn't think something looked good on me but in a very kind way which is a talent in and of itself. I was torn between two FL&L dresses and finally decided on the white one. I also got a pair of awesome Lovers & Friends mom jeans and a t shirt bodysuit to go with it, all for 50% off.

If you're ever in Montauk, I highly recommend visiting Girltauk. They are located down by Gosman's and the sisters who own it are delightful. They have a great selection of clothing ranging from $20 to around $350 for the more expensive brands. They carry For Love & Lemons, Jetset Diaries, Lovers & Friends, Ronny Kobo (just to name a few) and they have an awesome selection of jewelry and even home stuff too! If you like Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters home then you would love this store.

Montauk has changed quite a bit since I was a little kid spending summers out there but bits and pieces of the real Montauk do exist if you know where to look for them.  I rode my bike down to the ocean around 6:30 am on Sunday morning and saw one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen (pictured below).  I was alone with the ocean and I can't remember the last time I experienced something so peaceful.  I could have sat there and watched/listened to the ocean for hours on end and been perfectly happy.
