National Polka Dot Day 2022

Happy National Polka Dot Day!!!  Every January 22nd, Disney fashionistas celebrate our favorite polka dot loving style icon, Minnie Mouse!!!

January 22nd has pretty much become the day to celebrate Minnie Mouse.  Disney goes above and beyond for Mickey Mouse on his birthday.  But since he and Minnie both debuted in Steamboat Willie, they technically share a "birthday" on November 18th.  That doesn't help sell extra merchandise though, so in recent years, Disney has split their special days to November 18th for Mickey and January 22nd for Minnie.

The past few years, I haven't really gone anywhere on National Polka Dot Day so I haven't even bothered to dress up for it.  This year, I told myself I was going to dress up this weekend whether I had plans to go out or not!  Luckily for me, Jeremy is visiting Eliot and me this weekend since his birthday is tomorrow.  

The other day, I decided to break out a few of the polka dot cardigan tops that I bought last year.  They are called cardigans, but they're actually made out of t-shirt like, jersey knit material.  I thought they'd be perfect to wear over tank tops in the spring and summer.  I have them in four different color ways, but since I wanted to channel Minnie Mouse, I decided to pick from the black/white, white/black or red/white versions.

I really wanted to wear my new cinch belt (from Santa this past Christmas!) and my new Femme de Bloom Minnie Mouse polka dot earrings that literally came in the mail this morning.  I decided to go with the white/black polka dot version, with a red tank top and black leggings and I accessorized with the red belt and earrings!  This was an easy, cute and comfortable outfit to wear this weekend for National Polka Dot Day and to wear in honor of the polka dot fashionista herself, Minnie Mouse!

Finally, I thought that I'd share this cute video that Disney emailed me earlier today.  I thought it was a cute way to celebrate Minnie Mouse, her positivity and her affinity for bright and fun polka dots!  May we all have a little more Minnie in us! 

I hope you all have a fun filled weekend just like our favorite polka dotted mouse friend!

Rock thDots!!!  °o°
