seeing spots

As summer starts to wind down, I’ve got my eye on the upcoming fall trends. One of my favorites is back again – the classic, ever-present polka dot is staying firmly planted in your closet. Stella McCartney had a huge hit in her gauzy, breezy polka dot dress last year and recreated it for F/W 2012. I also love this classic Valentino dress, worn as a wedding gown!

Olivia Palermo is a spot lover, too. Here she is in an ad campaign (I can’t trace the original source, it’s looking almost like Kate Spade?) and later appearing at an event in a polka dotted gown.

If you’ve got a few spotty staples sitting in storage since summer, pull them out! If not, I rounded up a few favorites to take you into fall with style.

    Love it, playful and fun. I don’t have any clothes with spots on, but maybe now I won’t be so “afraid” of that pattern, knowing it’s actually possible to pull it off :)

    Thanks Sofia! Definitely grab a piece or two, you won’t regret it.
