mini trend: polka-dots

i've been obsessing over dots and stripes for the past few weeks. i'm not normally drawn to either look but something about this classic pair has intrigued me lately. more often than not i find myself drawn to tiny black and white dots, rather than a larger variation, but i thought it would be fun to flesh out a full mini trend on each. i'm starting with dots today because i'm in the process of having a black and white dotted cushion made for the bench in my kitchen. there's something delightfully fresh and preppy about dots so i hope you'll enjoy the mini-trend. there's certainly a lot of it in the market right now so you'll find something for every price point. enjoy!

I LOVE polka dots, and here is one of my favorite dotted pillows as well, mostly because of all the colored dots!
