How to Style Polka Dots this Spring

Polka dots are fast becoming a fashion statement. They add fun and playfulness to our outfits. As influencers and celebrities show up more in their polka dot ensembles, it’s only natural to expect more polka dot outfits this spring. So how will you style polka dots this spring?

It seems like the fashion conscious have caught a wind of how versatile polka dots outfits can be. Whether you wear them at formal occasions, to work or causal outings, polka dots have proven to be a must-have item in your wardrobe.

Since we’re anticipating more polka dots this season, here are ways to style them.

Pair polka dots with a solid coloured piece

This is an age-old unfailing rule when it comes to styling polka dot clothing items. Pair your polka dot top with solid coloured pattern-less bottoms, like a skirt or trousers and you can never go wrong.

The fashion favourite is the monochrome – black and white polka dots layered on solid black or solid white. Red polka dots are also a fashion favourite and if you stick to this rule you’ll have yourself a well-put together outfit.

 

Pair polka dots with other patterns

This may seem counter-intuitive with the first tip, but I have observed how 2018 fashion is tilting towards a bold and adventurous theme. And that includes styling with polka dots. Although it breaks the ancient rule of matching polka dots with solid colours, this combination adds a lot of creativity to your outfit.

Play around with pairing polka dots with other patterns like stripes or checks to add some adventure and edginess to your outfit.

 

Style with bright and cold colours

Polka dots do really well not only with the famous black and while. They work great with bright colours like yellow and orange which perfectly depicts the spring time.

Don’t be afraid to go bold and venture into more yellows, oranges, bright blues and pinks. Pair them with your polka dots pieces to add a lot of fun and playfulness with the bright and bold background. It works perfectly either way whether it is a bright top or bottom.

 

Embrace polka dot one-piece clothing

Spring has an easy laid back vibe which people express in their choice of clothing. A good example is easy to slip on clothing like maxi dresses and jumpsuits.

This is an ensemble not many women are comfortable pulling off because of the overwhelming number of polka dots. However, you can always break the pattern with a fashionable solid coloured hat, a pair of boots or heels, a waist belt or a clutch purse.

 

Compliment your outfit with polka dot accessories

Polka dots are not only fashionable with clothing items, they look amazing as accessories. Polka dots are always eye-catching so even a touch of polka dots can make your outfit stand out.

For low neck top, layer a polka dot scarf. If you’re wearing solid colours all through, compliment them with a polka dot handbag or clutch purse. Those are enough to inject fun into your outfits.

 

Layer over jeans

Another classic is complimenting a polka dot top with a pair of jeans. This combination never grows old. It’s relaxed and casual; just perfect for the springtime. You can also add more denim like a denim jacket over a polka dot top to nail that playful yet relaxed look.

Christmas Online Games

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the decorations and very chilly weather. I am seriously looking forward to Christmas. I am done with my Christmas gift shopping and I have already started wrapping them up! We have started listening to Christmas Carols, which the kids are seriously enjoying. I loved Christmas even as a child. There is just something relaxing and magical about the season. It is difficult not to like. We will be spending Christmas Day indoors with family and I have already started thinking of various activities to keep everyone engaged. If you are looking for lots of online games, slots and more? Try printable festive dice and card games, you and your family can enjoy.

With all the Christmas chaos going on, it is easy to forget the reason for the season, and what Christmas is really about. Family time is what Christmas is about and quality time together as a family is where the real festive fun is. I am going to remember that this year.

There are various Christmas online games available to play, with many being free and great for the whole family. I am looking forward to taking a break from work, and being gadget free this holiday, so I can soak it all in. That is what makes the season so special.

I remember being in Dubai last Christmas, and taking some days off to enjoy the sunshine and festivities. I thought my work and blog would suffer, but it didn’t. Everything was great, and I got back to busy as usual in January, and it felt good to be back after the break. I am looking forward to doing that again this year without no guilt or remorse. Work can wait! And a Digital Detox is always needed every now and again.

Product Review: Neutrogena & Joules Hand Creams

In the midst of the Christmas rush and chaos, I managed to squeeze in some time to review these products – Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream and Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream. I have been using both hand creams this winter, and I have found them both very handy in this cold season.

I always like to have hand creams in my handbag and around me. I get really dry hands, so hand creams are essentials in my life, I can’t do without them.

I got this Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream from my local Boots store some weeks ago, and I have used it every day.

Here is the product description:

Immediate and lasting relief for even the most dry hands.

Just a dab of this glycerin-enriched formula instantly relieves and protects seriously or chapped hands.

Even under the harshest conditions, it leaves hands noticeably soft and smoother.

Concentrated for over 200 applications.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It moisturises my hands perfectly, leaving it softer and smoother.
  2. It is so concentrated, I only have to use a tiny amount.
  3. I love the compact packaging.
  4. It is very affordable at £3.85 for a 50ml tube.
  5. It is readily available in most stores.

CONS

None.

This product ticks all the boxes for me. If there was anything at all I would like to be included in this product, would be a sweet smelling fragrance. This hand cream is scented but very mild.

 

I also had the opportunity to use this Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream and I have fallen in love with it.

I believe this product is no out of stock so I will just go straight to my thoughts on it:

 

PROS

  1. I love the name of the product, so creative.
  2. I adore the pretty bright packaging. I think it is so Joules.
  3. I love this hand cream. It smells amazing and leaves my hands feeling and look moisturised.
  4. I love the texture.

 

CONS

None. I love everything about this Joules hand cream.

 

I would recommend both hand creams, I think they are both great and worth every penny. If I had to pick one, I would go for the Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream because it has an amazing fragrance, a very pretty packaging and it does the job perfectly.

 

Have you used any of these hand creams before? Which do you swear by?
