Sweet Picks: Polka Dots, Checks and Stripes

I realized that recently I haven't been wearing as many patterns as I used to.  I don't know if that is just coming with age, or if the simplicity of solids is just appealing to me in some way lately.  Looking at some of the bolder patterned items in my closet, I just really wasn't feeling it.  The patterns I am now drawn to are the classics-polka dots, checks and stripes!  Did anyone watch the Elephant Show when they were little? My little brother did in the early 90's, and I remember this video where they literally sang "Polka dots, checks and stripes, are the fashion!" over and over.   It has now been in my head for days, and luckily for you, I found it on youtube.  You need to hear it, so you can sing along with me.  Only thing is I don't recommend wearing these all together as they imply in the video!  Unless that is your thing, then I guess go for it!

  1. I love all of these! You should see some of the new pieces J Crew released today. There are some really cute striped pieces and a polka dot chambray inspired button down. I did not see it on the website yet unfortunately.

  3. I am a sucker for all three! My closet is heavy on the stripes (navy and white boat necks, in particular) and I added a lot of checks this past year as well. Love it!

  4. I love all these patterns, and would love to add more of them into my closet! Especially that polka dot peplum top and the striped tee--both would be worn all the time! And I remember the elephant show! (The song Skinamarinky Dinky Dink, Skinamarinky Do...! Now that will be in my head all day!)
