I think it’s pretty safe to say I’m smitten with the polka dot trend. I think I like it because, just like stripes, it’s so easy to incorporate into my wardrobe and mix with other patterns.
I’ve seen so many cute pairs of polka dot shorts lately, but with the recent influx of polka dot items in my closet (pants, top, shoes) I’ve held back on buying any. Then I came across this adorable DIY from Say Yes to Hoboken.
With a pencil eraser and some acrylic paint, I could spruce up a pair of shorts I already own! I immediately grabbed this dark denim pair lurking at the back of my shorts drawer and set to dotting them with pale pink paint (leftover from this shower project). Now I have a “new” pair of whimsical polka dot shorts, and I didn’t spend a dime. If only everything were that easy.
Here's how I styled them:
T-shirt: Gap Outlet (similar); shorts: DIYed by me; belt: Old Navy; sandals: Steve Madden via 6pm.com
