Midyear. Can you believe we’re past the first half of 2018 already? Now before I get you into a pensive mood, let’s talk about happy things that this season brings. Like, midyear sales!!! 🛍😅 Because seriously, there’s nothing quite like seeing that jumpsuit that you’ve been obsessively monitoring in your wishlist (for heaven knows how long) slashed by 75 percent! Yay! Haha! Going through the sales though, there’s this particular trend that I saw a lot of that got me worried for a little bit, I’m talking about polka dots. ⚫⚪
While I couldn’t add to cart the above-mentioned jumpsuit fast enough(hello 75 off!), I had my doubts about my purchase when I saw more and more really good items in this polka dot print that’s being discounted (as though being quickly disposed of). At one point, I just couldn’t help but wonder – is polka dot going to die anytime soon? As far as I know, I haven’t read any style articles about it being replaced by any other print for the next season nor any signs of it dying from style influencers. So at this point, I really do think that my purchases are a good bargain. Also, this is the moment that I’m relying on my style instincts which has already proven me right many times already (i.e. favoring Gen Z yellow over lavender as seen here). And if ever it does go away anytime soon, now this is the time that I will rely on my honed styling skills on how to make the most out of these polka dot prints in the future. Let’s do this! Haha!
As of now, I’m loving these purchases and I still see fun, fun, fun in these circular patterns – be it big or small. Here’s how I am styling my purchases lately. 😀 So tell me, did you amass a lot of polka dot prints too? Hehe. 😜
