Polka Dot the Playful

It has been fantastically warm outside as of late! (Valley Girl Voice) Seriously.
Look at my feet. No boots! I think Mama N. is rewarding us for those few
weeks of torturous weather. You just know you're a northerner when it's -5
and all your windows are open while you do some "spring" cleaning, you veer
towards shoes and not just boots, and you walk the kilometre to the museum
rather than taking the bus to enjoy the mild weather. I'll take it all! I know
winter will strike again and I am so enjoying this break while it lasts! 

Whenever I see polka dots I think of the song Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow
Polka Dot Bikini. And to think once upon a time people thought polka dots
resembled illnesses, such as the measles! Well, I'm glad popular thought has
changed and people don't think of themselves crazily scratching their entire
bodies because of chicken pox when they see me. I'm also a little late on this
whole polka dot trend: this is my very first item, gasp! And I say I'm a fashion

  4. You are never too late to jump on the polka dot train! WAHOO! Welcome aboard. I'm pretty sure I'm wearing some sort of polka dotted something every other day or so... whether it's socks or a dress, baahah. I would like to add that skirt to my collection, so if you see it missing from your closet, I didn't steal it. Reaaaally. ;)

    Ehehe, but I love it against the red. *___*

    -5 degrees? Windows open? I... I... gurl, you are fierce.

  5. These colors look wonderful and I want your sweater. I'm right there with you, the second the weather is slightly warm we're like SPRING WEATHER. And I didn't start loving polka dots instantly either.

  15. I love how this is red+polka dots but it doesn't seem cliche at all or overblown. Instead it just seems COOL.
