Polka Dots & A Touch Of Whimsy

Does the sight of polka dots not put a smile on your face? For me, these spotted darlings rank high right alongside carousels, cotton candy and balloons in terms of the happy happy, joy joy factor. Perhaps it’s their uniformed roundness, or the way they look as though they could bounce from corner to corner with adorable accuracy. Or the way they appear rotund and poofy and beyond cute. Whatever it is that elevates their appeal quotient, I love polka dots and would wear them ever so happily, day in day out.


I am obviously acting under the influence of polka dots. I cannot be held responsible for my goofiness.


No, I have no valid reason to justify my marching.


Nor the swinging of my arms.


I told you polka dots make me happy. Do they make you happy?

Love, Sheela

    Well done you, you can imagine that I love this with the dots and all. And yes, this is how I feel too when wearing something fun so I try it most of the time. Much love, Kirsten xx



    • You know what you said about 70s fashion? Well, that’s how I feel when it comes to prints and mixing prints. I’m often unsure and second guess myself, resulting in the entire look being cancelled even before the camera comes out to play. I think I should just run with it next time and take a look at the photos before deciding anything, huh 🙂 xoxo


    • Hahahaha!! I was exceedingly goofy during that shoot and it shows, huh 🙂 thank you so much for your lovely words. I’m typing with a ginormous smile on my face right now xoxo
