Blame Minnie Mouse if you must, but polka dots will always remind us of playing dress up. While we do, in part, love them for making us think of our favorite Disney character, we don't really want other people thinking we still sleep on cartoon-character sheets.
Luckily, this season offers plenty of polka-dot pieces meant to inspire a moment of squee! without veering so precious that we feel like we're inadvertently lying about our ages. In these lovely finds, we'll accessorize with a work bag and a metro card, not our Gameboys, thankyouverymuch.
