The famous polka dot!

It has been around FOREVER!  

Every time I think I could never love it more than I love it now, something new pops up that I love even more!  It's fun and flirty and a must-have for every girl out there.  

 Black and white polka dots lend itself to any accent color, but pink accents are my most favorite way!  Kate Spade was a genius when she came up with her polka dotted line of accessories.  They are sophisticated, clean and simple, yet perfectly playful for a night out!  

Kate is among many designers who have put their spin on the polka dot, and made it fabulous all over again!

I'm obsessed with it all, but high up on my wish list are these Kate Spade Polka Dot Keds!  I'll admit, at first I thought...why on earth would I want polka dot sneakers, especially being that I barely ever wear sneakers.  But the more I saw them, the more I thought I had to have them...and I will find time to wear sneakers! :)

$75 is not too bad for a pair of sneakers, but I have a feeling that a lot of DIYers would be able to recreate this look themselves with a blank pair of Keds, paint and a stencil!  Who's brave enough to try it?!

Still pondering if I want to give the DIY project a go, or just go buy the original!  
What's your take on it? Are you crafty and talented and know you could recreate this look no problem-o? Or are you like me, and a bit insecure with your crafty side and think this might just end up a big mess?!

  1. Definitely could use those sneaks!!


  2. That watch! Gorgeous!! It's funny, I used to hate polka dots growing up, I guess they seemed too juvenile to me. But now, I can't think of anything more classic and fun! Loving all these items :)


  3. Obsessed with polka dots! Adorable finds! Pink accents are also my fave way! I am wearing a white belt with black polka dots and pink loop today! I totally match your blog post ;) I love looking at those Kate Spade Keds, but I just don't know if I can wear them. I think you should try the DIY and blog about it! If they don't turn out, buy Kate Spades ;)

  5. I love this post! I have been wanting to add more dots to my wardrobe so I may just have to get something from this set! If you do go with the DIY good luck! I am one of those people who would create a hot mess!


  6. I especially love to rock the polka dots look on my fingernails!!
