At least not over here. Not today anyway.
But, I do have polka dots!
I have been a lover of the polka dot since they were popular in the 90s.
Rocked them then and, possibly against better judgment (you know what they say about wearing trends you were around for the first time), I am rocking them now.
They are just so much fun.
And, as long as you don’t pair them with blue eye shadow, hot pink lipstick, fingerless gloves, or anything made out of tulle (which I will take a written vow to never again rock in seriousness, only in jest) you should be good even if you are
old mature like me.
This classic cut, polka dot shirt is from the Foxcroft Collection. And, the fun red jacket with it’s polka dotted lining, is from one of my favorite places on earth: Marshall’s (I snagged it for $13!).
I love that the shirt is so versatile; I can wear it casual like this, or as part of a more professional look with slacks or a skirt and a blazer. And, I love the added color pop the jacket gives to whatever I decide to wear it with (even if I roll down the sleeves to prevent a polka-dot onslaught).
What don’t I love? That I can’t ever do anything alone in this house, including
take a pee snap a photo, without the kid or the dog photobombing me.
The positive to this situation is that I’m sure their presence distracts your eye from my tummy area, like a fun color or a ruched top would.
Finally their interdependence on me comes in handy for something!
Back to polka dots.

And yes, as sweaty and squeaky as they may sound, leather shorts are in. I don’t have any yet myself, but I am seriously considering going on that fashion adventure with a faux pair (real is too much of an investment for the number of times I plan to wear them).
