So a couple of blogs I read did posts this past week about how polka dots are all the rage. So I thought I would focus on trying to bring polka dots into my wardrobe this week – because they are so fun!
First up, this yellow top that has mini swiss dots in gray all over it (hard to see with this photo that used the flash – it was way late and dark before I remembered about taking a pic). The top was given to me by a friend who thought it “looked like me” – and it’s so cute. I love hand-me-down clothes! The pants I found at the thrift store and they are SO comfy. I wore this ensemble to the baby shower since it’s a little on the dressy side.
I wanted a more casual top with polka dots and found this in my closet – I sewed it a few years ago. It has a polka dot trim. I have never loved it, but I do like it better with a cardigan over it. So for now I’ll keep it.
And here’s what I wore Saturday, around the house, running errands, to my son’s flag football game, etc. If you’re wondering where the polka dots are on this day, here ya go – these super cute earring from The Diary of Dave’s Wife:
And then Sunday I wore this polka dot skirt. It was from the thrift store and way too big, but for $2, I got it anyways and just took in the sides. I think I might need to take them in a little more. I got the white ruffled shirt from Sew Dang Cute on a daily fashion deal and love the texture it adds to the outfit. The salmon wedges were thrifted this summer on vacation, and I got the salmon cardigan thing a couple of years ago from a garage sale.
I am thinking that those tie-in-the-front cardigans are probably out of style, but it was the right color so I wore it anyways. Do you think it’s a keeper, or too dated?
And the big question – – how do you feel about Polka Dots?? Are you going to embrace that sort of fun? I think the next thing to join my wardrobe will be those polka dot jeans from Target that everyone is talking about – like I need to go buy some tonight!
