Polka Dot Fever

polka dot fever

[via polyvore]

I am totally in LOVE with the polka dot trend right now. Polka dots are everywhere and I couldn’t be happier.  It’s such a classic pattern that can be worn dressed up or down and is available on virtually any accessory.

Polka dots are just so much fun and make me smile. Lately, I’ve been spotted wearing polka dots almost every day.  I have polka dots on shirts, cardigans, dresses, scarves and even on my cell phone case. My pod mates at work also decided to decorate my desk for my birthday back in July with pink/white polka dot streamers (they know me so well).

It doesn’t matter if the dots are small or large; they still provide a nice sleek look to any outfit, as long as you have the right cut/tailoring in your clothes for your body shape. Truth be told, it doesn’t matter what the pattern is on a piece of clothing: if the clothing is too baggy or too tight, too long or too short, it won’t look good on you.  It’s a simple truth. 

So if you too love the polka dot trend, here’s an awesome little secret (ok, it’s not really a secret, but I’m making sure you know)…Old Navy has got their groove back and they are rocking some serious polka dot action in their current fall options. Plenty of other stores have polka dot options too, but I couldn’t believe my luck when I happened upon numerous polka dot options in Old Navy last week. Go check it out!

And just to illustrate my obsession with the trend, here’s me wearing some dots in this obligatory full length mirror/cell phone photo. (P.S. find me on instagram: @lindsaytolar)
