I have a love-hate relationship when it comes to polka-dots. I love that they’re feminine but hate when they look too girly. I love their youthful vibe but hate when they come across as childish. See? It’s a fine line for me.

Lately, however, I’ve been changing my stance on the spots. (It might have started when I saw this photo. She made me see spots in a whole new way.) The print seems to be everywhere (here, herehere, and here) and I’m kind of loving it – so much so that I’ve managed to add more than a few polka-dot prints to my closet. Things like these sandals and this dress (under $100!) have added a playful element to my summer wardrobe. And I’m not stopping there. The polka-dot love is sticking around for fall. Below, 9 dotty favorites on my fall wish list.

  1. This Ulla Johnson sweater (also available in cream) is adorable. It looks super cozy, too.
  2. I’ve been eyeing this silk skirt for the last week. I love that it’s something I can pretty much wear year round.
  3. If it’s color you’re after, check out this and this.
  4. This top is such a good sale score. I love the statement sleeves.
  5. This dress reminds me of the outfit Julia Roberts wore to the polo field in Pretty Woman. It would make a great dress for the office.
  6. When it comes to a daily uniform, this button-down and this t-shirt are total winners – not to mention, perfect layering pieces underneath sweaters.
  7. This DVF dress is at the top of my most-wanted list. I love the wrap style. Plus: it’s something that can be dressed up (add heels) or down.
  8. I love the subtle spots on these go-with-everything pants.
  9. Under $100: this, this, and this
