I love seeing trends develop in the blog world and noticing similar posts here and there. This weekend the constant I noticed was POLKA DOTS!

Update: image hosting service unfortunately no longer exists, use your imagination!

See by Chloe blouse, Volcom crossbody, ASOS bow ring, Current/Elliot jeans, Rag & Bone hat, House of Harlow bangle, Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals

I put in my two cents with a little accent on a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals and stud detailing on a lovely little Volcom handbag. There is one thing to be said for pretty printed dots, but sometimes an understated look can have just as strong of an effect.

A designer I "discovered" this weekend (discovered meaning I've heard her name but have never done much research!) is SONIA RYKIEL. She was born in one of my favorite cities, Paris, and was quickly recognized as a super-talented knitwear designer. However, it was her beautiful skirts that caught my eye...

A tad over budget at around $300 each, I may have to tap my favorite blogger seamstresses (Sarah and Kenzie, I'm looking at you!) to replicate these and send them my way. Until then, I will continue to shop for things I can't afford, for that is the way of the fashion blogger.
