Daily Disguise x Target :: Spring Trend Polka Dot

Polka dots are one of the happiest prints ever, which makes them the print of choice for spring. My spring polka dot must have is this Target polka dot dress. When the weather gets warm, there's no room for pants or shorts. It's all about cute dresses that will stretch farther than you ever imagined and this polka dot number doesn't disappoint. Wear it as a dress, a skirt, or even a romper for a night out! Trust me when I say it's a spring closet staple for every girl!


One of my favorite things to do when the weather warms up is to explore my town. I love to try new brunch places, go to outdoor concerts, and occasionally pack a picnic! What I don't like to do is spend all my time indoors, planning my outfit for my outdoor adventures. I want to spend as much of my time outdoors as possible! That's why this dress is a warm weather must have for me! It makes those casual outings with friends so much easier. It's comfortable, cute, and can be dressed up or down in no time!

I always try to layer so that I can easily adapt to the fluctuating temperatures of spring days and nights. A denim jacket instantly brings down the girl factor of the polka dot dress making it that much more casual for a weekend with friends. A colorful scarf gives you one more warmth option in case a denim jacket is too much, but just wearing the sleeveless dress leaves you slightly chilly in the shade. Top off the look with bright accessories and grab a straw fedora to keep the sun out of your eyes!

Yes, flatforms are in no matter how much you hate them, you'll grow to love them, trust and I wouldn't choose any other shoe for a casual polka dot look. Flatforms give you the height you crave while still allowing you the freedom to explore the entire town sans achy feet. Plus they're just so different and so casual, girly chic. Love them. 


People always ask me if I have a never ending closet, in fact, I just got that question last week. My answer: I really don't. It's all about stretching your closet to its limits and creating the illusion that you've got an endless wardrobe. I say that this polka dot dress is a spring must have because it takes on many endless undiscovered forms that will have people guessing how big your closet really is. This dress transforms beautifully as a skirt for work with just a simple blouse and belt. 

Pull a plain, cream colored blouse over the dress and it will instantly give it new meaning. I chose a cream blouse with black accents to keep the look a little more interesting and a little more feminine with the exaggerated collar. A sparkly belt and bright accessories will break up all the black and white, turning this look into a spring office hit! 

Who knew polka dots could be so perfect for work?!


Polka dot dress's last disguise is in the form of a mini dress or a romper lookalike for a night out. 

To transform your daytime casual polka dot dress into a mini dress for your night owl tendencies, simply take the dress tie and pull it around the front to tie this makes things a whole lot easier. Once you've got the tying started, start pulling the dress up over the tie. Keep pulling until you've achieved your desired length on the bottom and then fold the excess fabric up and over the tie. Don't worry, you won't be able to see this 5 minute tailoring once the belt goes on!

To make the new dress a bit edgier for a night time look, add a faux leather vest, lots of spiky arm candy, a thick black belt, and of course a neon clutch for fun! Your friends will never guess that this is the same polka dot dress you wore over the weekend and then again to work!

Now do you believe that this polka dot dress is an absolute Spring must have?
