Here a Dot, There a Dot, Everywear a Polka Dot

This month's Everybody, Everywear challenge is polka dots!!!!!!

Could I BE more excited?!?!?!
I don't think so!!

I love a good polka dot. I even love a bad polka dot. Not sure there is such a thing but I'm sure I'd love it anyway. Maybe a bad polka dot is an ambiguously shaped dot...kinda like what the doctors say you should look for when you check out your moles for possible weirdness.
That's right. I just turned a polka dot post into a mole-checking post. Awesome.

Ok, so back to the polka dot.

Because of my love of all things polka dotted, I feel inspired by the Everybody, Everywear Challenge to do a week-long posting on polka dots. I will include current and past photos of me wearing dots, as well as just some of my favorite finds around the web of dotted fashion and fun items.

Sounds like a splendid time, right?

First on the polka dot posting agenda, here are some outfits I've recently worn that incorporate lovely polka dots. You'll notice that most of the dotted articles came from Target.
Remember when you only used to buy underwear, cheap flip-flops, and workout clothes there?

Hat, Belt, Tank: Target
Blazer: GAP (courtesy of Em's garage sale)
Jeans: Gap

Cardigan: Target
Striped tee & jeans: GAP
Necklace: Old Navy

Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Polka dotted tee: Macy's
Denim skirt: Ann Taylor
Tights: DSW
Flats: Target
Necklace: Old Navy

same light gray striped blazer from Em

red polka dot tank: Target

dress pants: NY & Co.

snakeskin heels: Steve Madden from ideeli

necklace: Walmart

Head to toe shot. This looks trippy.

I wanted to make sure I included polka dots with prints, because I love how easily they pair with stripes or florals.

But now I realize that ALL the outfits I wore were dots and prints.

Like I said, it works.

How do YOU wear polka dots? As an accessory, article of clothing, paired with a crazy print, or classicly paired with a solid color?

psbtw...why does the spacing change in Blogger during my post? How do I keep single line spacing throughout??


  1. You ROCK those dots Girl! :) Greetings from a fellow polka girl from EBEW!


    P.S: I'm giving away a $500 FOLEY + CORINNA bag for my blog's Birthday! Would love to see you joining the fun! :D

  2. I love what you've done! So many different ways to wear polka dots. I'm in heaven.

  3. I love the polka dots and stripes! well, I love them all but especially that one.

  4. You are too cute. I like your writing style, my dear, but that's probably because I only speak with and understand sarcasm. Maybe a "bad" dot is like a naughty pair of undies with black dots? Just a thought. ; )

  5. i absolutely love these! wow! i love the hat, the red top, and the cardigan best. i think i should be allowed to borrow, yes? :)

  6. Look at all your dots! I like that grey cardigan with stripes underneath! Well, they are all great and I'd take anyone of them from you, but that's my favorite!

    Thanks for joining us at EBEW.

  7. You have polka dots everywhere! Looks great! I like the last one - the red. Different than the usual black and white!

  8. Oh my. Where do I even start? You work the poop out of a polka. I think they're ALL my favorite.

  9. You did a great job showing several looks featuring polka dots. Love the fedora!!

    ps. I usually check the spacing through preview until I get it right.
