You guessed it, today is National Polka Dot Day! Polka dots are one of my absolute favorite prints, so of course I had to wear a head to toe polka dot outfit to celebrate this momentous day. What makes this outfit even more special is that it features pieces from Cath Kidston’s latest collaboration with Disney, which launched in November. My style has always been super colorful and fun, so nothing makes me happier than dressing like a modern-day Minnie Mouse. I’m loving all the Mickey Mouse pieces from Cath Kidston, one of my latest obsessions. Based in the UK, Cath Kidston is a dream come true for the girl who loves all things cheery and whimsical, with a touch of vintage. They have everything from clothing, to accessories, to home decor.
For my head to toe polka dot outfit, I went with the Mickey and Friends Button Spot. This is such a cute little red dress – I love the mix of the polka print with the Disney characters. I happened to have the perfect red polka dot shoes to go with the dress. The two pieces together look like they were made for each other! To contrast against the red shoes and dress, I chose a light blue Mickey and Friends Shoulder Tote that also features Mickey and Cath Kidston’s button spot print. I really like the size of this bag as it fits my 13 inch Macbook, so it’s both functional and cute. Since this is a head to toe polka dot outfit, I completed the look with a dotted beret.
I decided to shoot this outfit in front of the Dumbo rainbow wall. I wanted this post to be happy and exuberant, as that’s how I feel when I’m wearing polka dots. The rainbow wall is pretty awesome. It’s a long wall with different colors throughout, so you’re only seeing a part of it in these photos. If you’re looking for a cool shoot location, check it out next time you’re in Brooklyn!
