On my love of polka dots

friday - shopping & lunch date


39/365


Fridays

going to the theatre


Yes, I do have an immense love for polka dots. I always knew it, but it came even more obvious to me when my friend was telling me she was describing me to someone who might have known me and she said 'You know, Helen, wears lots of polka dots and red'. Yes, that is how people identify me, through my love of polka dots and the colour red. I can't explain why, but I am enamoured by polka dots. I just can't get enough of them. Below is a mini-wishlist of polka dot items I would rather like to own.

1. Cardigan from Dorothy Perkins
2. Playsuit from Miss Selfridge
3. Dress from Dorothy Perkins
4. Cupcake cases from Squires Kitchen
5. Shorts from Topshop
6. Brooch from Miss Selfridge
7. Dress from French Connection
8. Teacup from Dotcomgiftshop
9. Cullotes from Dorothy Perkins

Do you have a love for a certain pattern? I love florals and stripes too, but I don't think my love for them quite matches my love for polka dots.

  4. Oh I love that last item on your wishlist, but was slightly disappointed that it was shorts. I feel a little silly in those culotte (is that the word?!) type shorts. And I did (try) to make gluten free cookies but they were the worst thing in the world. Sort of like sand..urgh! Binned. Thanks for your message anyway! xx

  5. I love Polka Dots sooooo much! I have this wonderful black dress and I love the polka dots they are very noticeable but not overwhelming hahaha! I love the dress and when I have a special occasion I love wearing it hahaha! and my mum tells me “you look like a photograph always wearing that polka dot dress!” oh well I love it!!
    I love your red lips I wear red lips every single day of the year hahaha!

    Love Dye♥

  6. Great outfits! I especially like the first one and last one.

    I too love polka dots and stripes. I'm not as big on florals because I feel like I look too lady-like and stuffy when I wear them. But I'll take cute and fun polka dots any day!

  8. I'm pretty sure I have the exact same skirt as you're wearing in the 2nd picture. I do love polka dots, but I don't think I really have a favourite pattern :/

  13. Polka dots look so cute on you. i don't think i have any favorite pattern, but i have quite a number of florals :)

  14. Florals are my favourites! Although I do have a soft spot for stripes, too. Funny you should post about polka dots today - I found a pair of black and white polka dot peep toes! They're so pretty.

    I adore the red and white teacup. So cute!

  17. I love polka dots! And I have at least a couple of the items in your outfit pictures. I never used to wear red but it's worked its way into my wardrobe, now it's my favourite colour!

    I love, love, love that teacup. And I don't even drink tea!

  18. Such cute outfits! The last one is particularly sweet. :)

  19. Florals are hard to pull off. If not done correctly it can age a woman.

    I love polka dots, too. It's such a classic pattern, never fails.

  28. Your outfits are so cute! I am also a bit of a fan of the humble dot.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your polka dot themed outfits all look nice! I love the color of your tights. You look so sweet in all the photos. I also love the polka dotted items. Cute finds!

    Since it's summer here in my part of the world, I'm thinking of buying myself some cute polka dot swimwear ala pin-up girl style. Ahehehe.

  30. My friends chose to describe me by saying "Katie, the girl with the bags and lots of purple." Its somewhat amusing but ever since I found this out I've found myself easing up on the purple tops. Although my love for the color has now spread to all me school supplies its hardly ever seen on me - florals on the other hand...

  31. If I may do a little psychoanalysis, I must conclude that your love of polka dots stems from the fact that the are THE BEST PATTERN EVER. I'm slowly amassing a small collection of polka dot clothing. SAll of your outfits are great, super sweet.

  42. You definitely have a very distinctive style. I love patterns, but I don't think I favor any one over another. I love stripes and florals and polka dots all together.

    ReplyDelete
  43. you can never go wrong with polka dots! i love your dress in the last image and your fox tee. where are they from???!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your polkadot dress is absolutely fantastic, in fact, I love the whole outfit! I love that playsuit on your wishlist too!

    I think for me, my most loved and worn pattern is tartan/plaid, I just can't get enough of it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I do love polka dots too! As for other patterns, I'm a big fan of florals right now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love all of the combinations here, but that last dress steals my heart away! :D

  50. I like this a lot! Have you heard of Yayoi Kusama because if your love for polka dots is as intense as hers you'd have a beautiful friendship.


    hmmm...pattern? ah... anything juxtaposed like a kaleidoscope really!
