Feeling Dotty

From Minnie Mouse to Twiggy, polka dots have had their hand in pop culture and fashion for almost a century now.

As fashion has evolved, so has the polka dot. Originally deemed a young or cutesy pattern, it now can be described as quirky or flirty or even sexy. Ooh la la.

I always love it when a print can be used in multiple ways and am so happy as the classic polka dot has revamped itself.

How do y’all wear your dots?

I’m so happy that the weather is finally getting warmer here in Oregon! The fact that I can wear these polka dot shorts now makes me giddy. I love the flowiness the pleats give as most high waisted shorts tend to get a bit too tight in the thigh area.

Also, I’d love to do more outfit posts. Shooting for it with my friend in front of the new science complex on campus was definitely a-lot of fun. Plus, I do like the way the photos turned out 😉

Y’all have a wonderful Friday–I’m off to see the Dali Lama speak!
