Dose of Disney: Violet Minnie

Monday, March 27, 2017

Purple is my all time favorite color! So, when I learned there was a violet lemonade at the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot I was excited to say the least. This look is all purple and floral inspired. My Minnie floral baseball tee is from the wonderful Pretty Little Monograms. I got a ton of stuff from her before my trip and I love everything, especially this tee! 

This tee matched the Flower and Garden merch perfectly! I picked up these Minnie ears at the park and they coordinated perfectly with this tee. Having a baseball tee was perfect because it was a bit chilly. We expected the weather to be much warmer then it was, but I changed in and out of a pair of chino shorts to yoga pants as the weather changed throughout the day. Sadly I was in yoga pants most of the day, but it still ended up being a cute look. 

Again, I also layered my denim jacket over this look when it was colder. I accessorized the jacket with fun pins and buttons for an extra dose of Disney! My shoes are the same Toy Story Vans I rocked a lot of the days while at the parks. 

How cute is this wall! It's known as the bumble gum wall because of it's awesome colors. This wall is right near the Spaceship Earth ride right near the entrance of Epcot. My adorable "Treat your self" button is from Parkbound buttons. 

One of my bigger purchases of the trip was this Flower and Garden exclusive Dooney and Bourke crossbody. I'm obsessed with this print! I knew I wanted to pick it up after seeing it all over Instagram. Opting for the smaller size lets me use it at the parks, in addition to my backpack, and also for everyday use. I searched for a print on the bag that showcased Minnie the most. I'm not the biggest fan of Figment, who was a featured character, so I found one where he wasn't as prevalent! When purchasing one of the bags be sure to check the patterns because they all look a little different. 

While at Epcot I met the adorable Raven behind The Disney Dorm on Instagram. She is so so so adorable! She was at the parks handing out free patches she makes and I knew I had to go say hi. Before my trip I picked up her tea cup patch for an upcoming DIY project I'm planning. She's the sweetest girl and I loved the chance to meet her. Be sure to check out her shop Disney Dorm and her adorable products! 

This trip I found a ton of cute new photo spots perfect for snapping the perfect Instagram! I'll be doing a whole post on the best Instagram photo spots soon!

Dose of Disney: You've Got a Friend in Me

Friday, March 24, 2017

You've got a friend in me, you've got a friend in me. 
Toy Story is one of my favorites! Disney's Hollywood Studios is kind of the home of Pixar and with the upcoming Toy Story land I was feeling major Pixar vibes! So, for my outfit for Hollywood Studios I rocked a head to toe Toy Story inspired look. 

These super cute ears were made by my best friend's sister! She has her own Etsy shop and makes adorable ears. I had to have these Toy Story ears for this look. Be sure to check out her shop Enchanted Ears by KT.

For this look I wore the most adorable Pizza Planet pocket tee from Box Lunch. Box Lunch is a super cool store that has a bunch of pop culture merchandise, including Disney! The best part, they donate meals to kids in need with every purchase. So awesome! The pocket tee features the adorable aliens from Toy Story reaching out of the pocket tee with the claw. Also, it says Pizza Planet. 

These Van's Toy Story sneakers are so darn cute! Somehow I managed to snag them at Nordstrom rack for under $40. Such a steal. They were also super comfortable for walking around all day in the parks. In addition, they are subtle enough that I can wear them outside of Disney World. Not to mention, the adorable Andy detail on the bottom of the shoe is to die for! 

Pizza Planet was my family's favorite restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios. So, when we heard they were getting rid of it we were devastated! These shirts pay tribute to our favorite spot in a small way. We all wore matching t-shirts so we looked like typical dorky tourists, but in a stylish way. 

Where it's from: 
Shirt: Box Lunch 
Shorts: Nordstrom 
Shoes: Vans Toy Story collection 
Ears: KT Enchanted Ears on Etsy 
Magicband wrap: Magical Monograms on Etsy 
Necklace: Baublebar 
Bracelets: Alex and Ani

Dose of Disney: Minnie meets Lilly

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

For my first day at Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot I wanted a fun outfit to take pictures in front of all of the beautiful topiaries. So, I opted for a Lilly meets Disney look. I paired a pair of Sail Bow Lilly Minnie ears with a matching Lilly dress. This print is one of my all time favorites, so I loved this look! 

With this dress I wore my Minnie Mouse Keds. Keds are my go-to sneaker to wear at Disney. They are comfortable but also cute! This pair is great because they are neutral, but still have a hint of subtle Disney style. 

This day was odd weather, Sometimes it was super warm and other times it was cold. So, I carried around a denim jacket to throw on when it got chilly. I wore this jacket on repeat all week. My new obsession is for sure a jean jacket with some flair like buttons or pins. This day I wore some buttons from Box Lunch (also my new obsession) and some pins from Disney World. 

Can we talk about this topiary? So cute! There will be a post all about the different topiaries of the Flower and Garden Festival so be on the lookout! 

For accessories, I carried my new favorite Disney bag. This Danielle Nicole handbag is Seven Dwarf themed! Ahh! I'm obsessed. It features my favorite Disney boys and a moveable pick and hammer on the front. Also, it has a bunch of iridescent glitter. Danielle Nicole has so many cute Disney bags, but this is for sure my favorite. I got it the day I left for Disney so the timing was perfect. I picked it up for 20% off on Hot Topic's website. Surprisingly they have a ton of cute Disney stuff! 

Where it's from: 
Dress: Lilly Pulitzer 
Ears: Sail Bows 
Jacket: American Eagle 
Necklace: Kendra Scott 
Bracelets: Alex and Ani 
Magic Band Wrap: Magical Monograms 
Bag: Danielle Nicole Handbags

Dose of Disney: Why I love Disney as a young adult

Monday, March 20, 2017

So many people tease me about loving Disney as a 21-year-old adult. But, I don't care. Disney is something I have loved and cherished all of my life. Whether that be the movies, the parks, or the characters. My entire life Disney has been there. From watching the movies with my brother and Papa, to going to the parks with my family, to going on Disney cruises and making amazing friends Disney is something that is important to me. 

If you don't like Disney that is totally okay. But, why diss on people who do? As a "young adult" who loves Disney, I'm someone who loves being a kid. 

Disney World brings me to a place of happiness. Disney cruises gives me an opportunity to escape the real world and just have fun. Disney movies gives me a chance to have fun and be a kid. That is why I love Disney. Because it gives me the chance to forget all of my problems and just have fun. It reminds me of the little girl who loved playing dress up in Disney princess dresses and carried around a 101 Dalmatians purse. Disney reminds me of simpler times.

With the world we live in I think everyone could use a little magic and happiness, and Disney does that for me. So, the next time you diss on someone who is going on vacation to Disney world or says they are way to excited for the Beauty and the Beast movie release (because let's be honest we are all excited) remember what Disney means to people like us.

Dose of Disney: Make it Pink

Friday, March 17, 2017

For day 1 of our Disney Spring Break Trip we headed to Magic Kingdom for a half day. We arrived at our hotel around noon then headed to Magic Kingdom for a lunch reservation and some fast passes for later in the evening. 

For a short day at the park, and one of the warmest days of the week, I sported this adorable Sleeping Beauty inspired 2319Threads tank top! Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorites and I love pink so this tank was perfect! I paired the tank with a seersucker Lilly skort. 

How cute are my mom's Lilly shorts? This is my favorite Lilly print of all time. 

This Disney trip I wanted to dress cute but comfortable. Wearing comfy tees with cute bottoms has been a good balance. This way I'm comfortable but still have cute outfits for all of the photo opportunities! 

For accessories I had some super fun pieces! First things first, are these adorable Toy Story vans. Under very lucky circumstances I found these on sale at a Nordstrom Rack near school. For about $30 these were such a steal, and perfect for the parks. Then, I had these gorgeous Aloha Ear Design 3D printed ears. They are so so cute! I got dozens of compliments on them. They are gold castles with a Mickey head in the center. Plus some glitter to make them sparkle. 

Where it's from: 
Make it Pink tank: 2319Threads 
Skort: Lilly Pulitzer
Shoes: Vans Toy Story collection 
Ears: Aloha Ear Design 
Earrings and Necklace: Kendra Scott 
Bracelets: Alex and Ani, Disney leather bracelet 
Magicband decal: Magical Monograms

OOTD: Striped Bow Blouse

Monday, March 13, 2017

Spring is such a fun time. It's full of new clothes, blooming flowers, and brighter colors. I'm so over the boring dullness of winter. Spring Break has been making me even more excited for warm weather!

In Lawrence it was 70 degrees when I was there a while back so I took advantage of the warm weather. This striped top is going to become my new go-to spring top. I love the color, sleeves, and the adorable bow back detail. It's great for going out, shopping, or just a casual day. 

Where it's from: 
Shirt: Local boutique- Fortuity 
Jeans: Paige 
Shoes: Nordstrom 
Earrings: Kendra Scott 
Bracelets: Alex and Ani, Kendra Scott

OOTD: Lilly Floral

Now that I'm in Florida it makes me so excited for spring and summer in the Midwest. We've gotten a slight taste of spring so far this season. This look is going to be my go-to spring look! A fun blouse plus a pair of chino pants from J Crew make the perfect look to go from class to work. 

I picked up this casual tunic style top at the most recent Lilly sale. I love the print! It has a little bit of every color. From orange, navy, pink, and green this top has a little bit of everything which makes it super easy to pair with different bottoms. For this look I kept things simple with a pair of navy pants. But, you could also pair it with bright pink shorts or a navy skirt. 

To accessorize the look I wore my go-to shoe of choice for the summer Jack Rogers. Then I added a pair of iridescent Kendra Scott earrings for a little bit of sparkle. 

What I wore: 
Blouse: Lilly Pulitzer 
Pants: J Crew 
Shoes: Jack Rogers 
Purse: Coccinelle 
Earrings: Kendra Scott
