The Polka Dot Trend that’s Everywhere


Polka dots—yes, the ones you used to wear as a child—are having a huge comeback this season! And even though it snowed this past weekend I still felt like going spotty! But if you associate polka dots with Minnie Mouse, it’s time to rethink the surprisingly versatile print. Labels like SILKNY are putting a new spin on polka dots – my georgette dot print blouse comes with a fabulous tie neckline and soutache trim sleeves. How chic is that?!

This past weekend was crazy. It snowed quite a bit—making it almost impossible to shoot and when it finally stopped and we’re ready to venture out…guess what?! Our memory card wasn’t in the camera and we weren’t able to shoot. We were at this location, I’m posing all ready to go and NOPE! Nothing. Luckily my husband saved the day and was able to get a memory card at Walgreens (of all places!) which was right next to our photo location. A much better option than having to drive all the way back home.  But let’s get back to fashion…

Have your heard of the brand SILKNY?! Established in 2013, SILKNY has the most luxurious designs, without sacrificing comfort and most importantly, one that won’t break you wallet. I’m wearing their polka dot blouse and pants which not only fit comfortably but they also feel amazing! Silk simply feels like a second skin, wouldn’t you agree?!


I’m utterly obsessed over my blouse, though… The soutache trim sleeves make such a dainty but lovely statement. You can easily wear this look at the office, to a casual afternoon stroll and/or even to dinner. It’s so versatile! To learn more about SILKNY click HERE.

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a lovely start to your week!

    It’s true that polka dots are everywhere, but I confess I don’t like it much in the black and white version. Just as your blouse is perfect !!
    Love the pics.

    I am so happy about this trend…it’s so whimsical and fun! You look absolutely stunning as always, Vanessa!

    Your top is easily one of the cutest polkadot I’ve seen this season! I love how you paired it with super edgy pants and sweet and chic heels!
