Polka Dots Forever

Those of you who have followed my blog for awhile now know that I am obsessed with polka dots. I love the pattern and I wear it all the time. I think it's so cute yet there is something timeless and classy about it.

Today, I'm over at one of my favorite blogs, A's Fashion Files, to try and convince Allison's readers to join the polka dot love train with me. I think I even tell them it's like wearing a neutral... head on over and show some love!

And now time for this week's Friday Love-It Notes!

1. April Fool's Day came and went. Each year I get a bit paranoid that my husband is going to play some crazy prank on me since he loves being a jokester. Luckily, he hardly ever knows what day it is let alone that it was April Fool's.

2. Finding Dory. The sequel to Finding Nemo has officially been announced! Ellen DeGeneres (love her) will reprise her role as Dory in the sequel coming out in 2015. Who else is excited!?

3. Bringing the deck furniture back out. Since it's spring, that means we can get our deck furniture out from storage. That means sitting outside on a warm night for dinner or on a weekend day soaking up the sun with a cold beverage. Ah, yes. So, if my husband is reading, I know what you're doing this weekend! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Natalia A said...

I want to sit outside, too!!! Not that I can't now, but I'll definitely turn blue and get covered with snow... :( Please send us some sunshine, if you can.
The polka dots are just adorable! I have a soft spot for them, too, although I am into a stripy mood today.

TheTinyHeart said...

Ashley @ embracing the everyday said...

You are SO CUTE! Seriously love both outfits! And Finding Dory...yes! But too bad we have to wait so long!

two birds said...

i cannot wait for patio parties! we're not there yet in minnesota, but i can feel it. have a great weekend!!

Sarah said...

With you on the polka dot love! And can't wait for the Dory movie! My kid loves Finding Nemo, I think i've watched it no less than 50 times...might have to be the first movie we take him to, that's if it comes out in theaters and not straight to DVD.

Georgina said...

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to join you in this girl because you always look so cute rocking the polka dots!

lisacng @ expandng.com said...

Convinced, polka forever :). And I saw a YouTube video of her annouccement and it was so wonderful! I can't wait for the sequel, though announcing it 2 yrs early is rather rare. I wish it were sooner so it could be J's first experience at the theatre. He loves the Nemo movie.

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I saw a video on youtube yesterday about finding Dory. I'm stoked. I can't wait for it to come out.

Margarita said...

You look super cute in polka dots, no wonder you like them so much!


Ricademus said...

Polka dots remind me of the sparkle of the universe--a star filled sky on a clear night. Full disclosure: I did just each Star Trek, that may have influenced me. I'm not a fan of Aptil Fool's day....some pranks are funny, but too many end up being mean. I like the funny ones!

Hope you two have great weather this weekend.

PS - In my youth, I thought they were "poka dots".

Ricademus said...

"watch" Star Trek...autocorrect mis-read my mind.

Kelly said...

SO EXCITED for Finding Dory!! And I, too, love polkadots. I don't have nearly enough in my life!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

Love the polka dots! That's great that spring has come your way. Have a wonderful weekend!

Polka dots suit to you so much. It's ok to have lots of clothes with same print)

Yuli Conversations said...

Oh yeah baby! Polka dot IS forever!! :D

kimmie said...

Finding Dory? What? I loved Nemo, and sad that he won't be the main character anymore, but seeing as the voice actor is like, a teenager on Weeds now, I don't know how that'd work out.

John Marine said...

Trying to spread the polka dot love, are you? I totally agree with the first "Love-It" note. April Fool's Day should be banned- especially if there's something you fall for and believe. You're not fooling around with your looks here. Every fashion blogger has some sort of trademark or signature style. Yours is with polka dots. Whether casual or classy, you deliver on all fronts. Great style, Yi-Chia.
