DOT DOT DOT

They say the best way to test out a trend is to try it in small dozes. I must say that I agree to this. First time I tried to steer away from basic colors, I started buying colored bags before buying everything else in bright hues. Now, polkadot is not something I usually wear but seeing that they're making a comeback for fall, I thought I'd try out these mini polkadot shorts. I swapped them instead of my too-beaten-up 7 for all Mankind cut-off shorts. Turns out dots aren't as minnie mouse-ish as I thought it would look...

pssst... if you haven't notice, I tweaked alot of my blog layout.. it's still in-the-making.. so pardon any bad appearances there are ! if you have inputs at the moments, save them later when the layout is totally finished :)

Trying trends in small doses at first is the best way to figure out do they work for you or not :) And polka dots most definitely work for you :) These shorts are lovely!

Polk-a-dots are so not Minnie Mouse-ish. Unless you add the ears and black nose that is, ha ha. Anyway I am glad you switched out jean shorts to these little sweet ones. It completes the look beautifully.
Cheers,
