Here is a link to the original thread with the challenge "guidelines".

Starting off - polka dots/spots which have become quite well represented in my wardrobe with two dresses, three tops and one scarf. Apparently a "polka dot " is one of a number of round dots repeated to form a regular pattern on fabric.

So some of mine are polka dots and I think some are just plain old spots.

Why do I like them? I think they are fun and playful, and an easy pattern to wear. They are relatively classic - I don't think they are particularly on trend right now.

I am going to wear polka dots for a few days in different ways and post a picture to this thread of the outfits. I would love some company - either current WIW or past WIW featuring spots. If you are shy then you can just photograph the shirt or dress, or even add a photo of a polka dot or spotted outfit that you like.

Today is Wednesday for me, so on Monday I will start a similar thread but for the perennial favourite - stripes. Other patterns to follow - I don't have a lot of winter floral or botanicals but I know others do!! There is a chance for plaid lovers and the last one will include any other pattern - a wildcard.

Anyway today I am wearing a wine coloured dress with cream polka dots. This has been shown before as have the boots, necklace and coat. I do have a new bag however, in a toffee leather. I am loving it so far.

Please share your dotty looks!!

PS Off for a hair cut/colour tomorrow and hopefully a smile makeover too...
