Perfect Polka Dots

In the past few seasons, we’ve been seeing a plethora of stripes incorporated in clothing. Although I continue to see stripes all over the store racks, another print seems to be popping up: polka dots!

To me, polka dots are such a happy, fun print and are perfect for daytime wear. Seeing them definitely has me in the mood for spring. I love when bright colors and patterns emerge in stores!

Today, I rounded up a collection of polka dot items…some are perfect to wear now, some are geared toward the warmer spring weather. Some for now, some for later! Do you have a favorite in the bunch?
