Thanks to Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs, I've developed a fondness for polka dot prints this fall, so when DailyBuzz Style asked me to participate in their November 9x9 polka dot print feature, I was delighted and ready to take on the challenge. (The 9x9 involves 9 bloggers shopping for, styling, and photographing their looks in a 9-hour time frame.)

Fresh from a short trip to San Francisco, I went straight to my reliable source for affordable apparel - good old H&M. Fortuitously on this particular Saturday morning, there were no Versace crowds at this location, nor was there a shortage of polka dot pieces to choose from.  These pleated shorts with their tiny dots instantly caught my eye on the racks, and since blue is my favorite color, I knew they'd fit seamlessly into my wardrobe.

As a fan of mixed prints and bright hues, I went for a playful mix by pairing the shorts with an elephant print top in a vibrant color palette.  Sometimes a mood-enhancing bright red jacket, colorful mixed prints, and trompe l'oeil tights are the perfect antidote to an increasingly cloudy and cool fall day.
