Minnie Rocks the Dots

Today is National Polka Dot Day!!!  What better way to celebrate than to channel our favorite polka dot style icon: Minnie Mouse!  I've always loved polka dot patterns- probably because some part of my subconscious always associated them with Minnie.

Minnie has been a fashion icon for decades, and her polka dots are becoming a style movement of their own.  Minnie's style has an Instagram page for all things Minnie inspired.  The page has a collection of images from polka dot dresses, to teacups, mouse ears, finger nails, handbags and images of Minnie Mouse herself!  Users are encouraged to use #MinnieStyle in their own Instagram photos!

In addition to that, there is going to be a Minnie Mouse inspired art installation in Los Angeles.  Disney and Refinery29 have partnered up to bring a "Minnie Rocks the Dots" exhibit complete with her outfits around the world, a photo gallery, color-by-number art and a shop with limited edition Minnie merchandise.

Of course, you can always "rock the dots" when you're at the Disney parks.  There are numerous Minnie Mouse inspired items on sale at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  I've always been a huge fan of the Minnie items.  Some of my favorites are the scarves, jewelry, handbags, t-shirts and the Pandora bracelets!  I love being able to incorporate a little bit of Disney into my everyday wardrobe!

Finally, if a trip to the Disney parks isn't in your future, you can still rock some Minnie inspired style a little closer to home.  Kohl's and Lauren Conrad have released another Minnie Mouse inspired collection for Minnie Rocks the Dots.  This time, there are some designs for children along with the juniors sizes.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of the collection available at our local Kohl's store!  (Don't worry, I behaved... for now.)

Wherever you are today, don't be afraid to channel your inner Minnie and proudly wear your polka dots!  I'm off to see what I can come up with to rock the dots!  °o°
