Dot... Dot... Dot...

These past few weeks have been so crazy busy here at the Gardner household. As a result, I missed out on something that I was SO looking forward to. Sad face:(  What did I miss u are asking? polka dot week with Suz and Viv! (click the link to see the fabulousness I missed out on). If you've been following along you know that I recently figured out my obsession for polka dots.Click here if you missed it! Its a little ridiculous actually, I didn't even realize I liked them so much until one day organizing my closet, I had about 394,051 tops with polka dots. (exaggeration of course) Needless to say, I was pumped to be joining in with these fashionistas and puttin my dots out there! I mean look at these looks!


So I figured I would just add my polka dot looks all in one place and count it as my own late addition. Sorry girls, I tried! Hope this works :)


This first look I put together right after I found out about Poka Dot Week. I just love how it came out! Its all black and white because thats the dress code where I work. And although I am getting very good at working with neutrals and black/white, it was nice to have a little inspiration/challenge to spice things up. (having to add spots to the mix!)


I love how this outfit turned out. The bubble pearls on the necklace, and the circular cut outs on the back of the top, really bring the whole look together. 

The following are past outfits of polkadots that I was going to revamp for the linky party but as I said earlier, I failed. So u get the old ones just to get an idea of my love for the dots.



I found this lovely shirt at the DI. Not quite polka dots, but still has the same look. I just love it. I have a lot of pearls too I just realized. 





AND... for those of you who didn't follow the link to my previous polka dot blog post
 (ahem...shame on u) heres a little sample. Its my absolute favorite shirt these days. 

And just to prove to you how much I love polka dots, here are some pictures of my dog Toulouse wearing polka dots because obviously she loves polka dots too. So I made her participate....:) But she LOVES wearing clothes. Its the best thing ever cause I have a whole mini wardrobe for her. 


Isn't she the sweetest. Love my Toulouse!

Like I said, sad I missed polka dot week but glad I got to show you all my love of polka dots! Go over to Suz and Viv and show them some love, and YOUR love of polka dots.
