Polka dots versus gingham – it’s a match up for the ages! Admittedly, I’ve had polka dots on the brain lately (see my most recent all polka post as well as a throwback image in No. 8 0f my Notepad series), so at the moment they are looking like the heavy favorite. But, don’t sleep on gingham, who has seen her fair share of victories over the years. Lately, I have been so excited to see old favorites updated in gingham patterns as well as seeing it reinterpreted in fresh new ways. Dots on the other hand have stayed quite classic this season – the pops of red being my personal favorites. Which pattern has your heart? Or like me, do you not take sides?
