I can't help it, but these little round things just make me smile every time I look at them. Many of you would be intimately familiar with polka dots, and may have even grown up seeing or wearing them. Our once (for some =P) beloved Disney Minnie Mouse is almost always seen sporting them and she has certainly maintained a youthful and cheerful outlook for the future.
I love polka dots because they are just so cheerful and add such a whimsical tone to any outfit. I particularly love the way these dots are complimenting this skirt, just can't resist a full flare mini adorned with some fun dots =)
Ok, so for some of us, dressed in a full polka dot one piece may be a little intimidating. I find that if you like the pattern and want to wear it in a one piece (e.g., dress), it's best when the dots are smaller in size and more spaced apart (better still, scattered). Otherwise, choosing accessories in polka dot patterns is always a great option to inject some playfulness into the ensemble without going overboard. A scarf, a pair of shoes, or the frames of your sunnies are all subtle ways that you could work this cheerful pattern into your attire. Despite their appeal, try and limit yourself to one polka-dotted piece at a time. I hope when you next put on your polka dot piece, it will bring a smile to your face too!
