Dose of Disney: Hey Now Hey Now

Hey now hey now.... well you know the rest. 

I think we can all agree the Lizzie McGuire Movie is one of the best cinematic works of our generation. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it is a damn good movie people. This tee is no exception of perfection. When I saw Happily Ever Tees was doing a throwback tee I had to get it. Although this was a while back I finally had the opportunity to rock it at the parks during my trip in April. 

I wore this fun tee to the Happily Ever After firework show one night at Magic Kingdom. It was the first time I watched the show (and could see) and it did not disappoint! This tee and short combo was perfect for the occasion. I love these linen shorts from J. Crew. They have a flattering tie on the side and an elastic waistband which is optimal for eating lots of cake pops and popcorn.

Pairing the look with a neutral pair of denim ears from Shop House of Mouse tied everything together. Plus gave me major 90's early 00's vibes. Who didn't love an embellished denim jacket or pair of jeans back in the day? What a time to be alive. I think Lizzie would be proud of this look. Do you agree??

Dose of Disney: Edna Mode Fashion Week Event

I had such an amazing time at Dressed in Disney's Edna Mode Fashion Weekend event in Chicago this past weekend! There were so many fun small shops, Disney style, and even a purple wall. I wanted to share some fun snapshots from the event! Like I said there were a ton of great small shops, some even local to the Chicago area. 

First up was The MadHattear, which I have ordered her ears before. I love love her ears! They are super unique and are hand crocheted by her. So cute! I picked up another pair as I just couldn't resist. I opted for a gold and black pair which will be perfect for my trip to Christmas time. But, I was contemplating a super cute Incredibles themed pair because my Incredibles craze is going strong RN. 

Next was a new shop to me IX Man Club. He had the best Disney inspired bow ties and ties, plus lots of pocket squares! The question is could I convince my boyfriend to wear one.... to be continued. But, they were so awesome and great for Disney guys! He also had these awesome bowtie keychains which both my mom and I picked up one in a gorgeous Beauty and the Beast print. Also, can we talk about his display, loving all of the colors! 

Brand by You had an awesome set up as well! She was showing off her new t-shirt and backpack designs which were giving me major 90s vibes. 

Another new shop for me was Patch Princess Co.! I ended up with a super cute popcorn patch plus a polaroid pin. Popcorn is my favorite food, in and out of the parks, so I was so excited to see a popcorn theme patch! It even has little Mickey shaped popcorn kernels, I died. That patch is for sure getting added to my DIY denim patch jacket. 

One of the things I was most excited for was Main Street Press's exclusive designs for the event! Can we please talk about this Incredibles Chicago inspired tee? So awesome! They also had a fabulous Edna Mode design for the event. Naturally, I got both designs because I just couldn't resist. I also picked up a few more Main Street goodies for some discounted prices they had at the event. You know I can't turn down a good sale. 

I loved watching Leo do live screen printing! Back in high school I randomly took a screen printing class and loved the whole process. Obviously we did it on a much smaller scale, but none the less it was still cool. I got my three t-shirts printed right before my eyes, so fun! 

Main Street Press brought out all of the shirts for the event. So many fun old designs to pick up at the event. I loved all of the colors! 

We also did a little fashion show at the event! I made a brief appearance after they asked me if I wanted to hop in. Why not I said! I'm so glad everyone understood my Disneybound. I think my boyfriend and brother thought I was cray, but once I got in a room full of Disney fans that got it instantly! 

Be sure to check out the vendors at the event! 

And of course if you don't follow Dressed in Disney already be sure to check out her Instagram Mouse BabeBlog, and her Chicago boutique. A massive shout out to her and everyone involved for putting together this event!

OOTD: Edinburgh in Bloom

I don't think Edinburgh could have gotten more charming. This adorable little city took my heart while we visited for two days in May. From gorgeous blooms, historic streets, beautiful buildings, and of course amazing food. What's not to love? 

In today's post I'm sharing a fun look I wore for a day exploring the city of Edinburgh. Before I left for my trip I received my Gal Meets Glam dress in the main and immediately wanted to wear it! Naturally I found a way to wear it on this trip. 

The dress is actually extremely comfortable! It's a midi length (on me at least) and is a lightweight chambray fabric. This dress would be ideal for any summer getaway. Plus the length makes it easy to travel in because you know you've got coverage everywhere. 

The fabric has soft little polka dots which gives it a charming feel. Large buttons go down the center of the dress, but no worries they are just for decorative reasons. With a defined waistband it gives you a great shape as well! Unlike some midi dresses I feel like this dress really worked on my petite frame and height. So if you are on the shorter side I would recommend this dress!

It was a tad chilly during our day so I opted for my trusty dusty pink Barbour lightweight jacket. This jacket is my go-to lightweight jacket for spring and summer. Plus, the color is perfection. If you follow me on Instagram you know I'm going for the pink theme hard. Which this compliments perfectly. 


In the accessories department we kept things super classic and simple. Pearl studs and a fun pearl chocker complete the look. Plus my everyday Hermes bangle of course! 

To keep things casual, and most importantly comfortable, I wore my favorite Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. These things are so comfortable, one of the most comfortable sneakers I own. I wore them all through Disney then brought them over the U.K. as well. They are great for travel because they match basically anything! Plus I love pairing them with skirts and dresses. So cute! 

Where it's from: 
Dress: Gal Meets Glam 
Jacket: Barbour (it's on sale!!)
Necklace: KJP 
Shoes: Adidas 
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland

Dose of Disney: Once Upon a Dream

I know you I walked with you once upon a dream....... 

This look is the princess look of my dreams! Thanks to this adorable Jadelynn Brooke tee I picked up a while back. On the back it has a little saying about all of the princesses. Plus a fun little pocket on the front with a castle. Which makes it the perfect tee for a trip to Magic Kingdom. 

I paired this tee with my go-to pair of white chino shorts to keep things simple. These white chino shorts from J. Crew are a staple in my summer wardrobe. They literally go with anything and everything. Plus they are a good "grown-up" short. As a 22, almost 23 year old gal I feel like ripped short shorts are a little much for me. With these shorts you can keep it classy, but not to stuffy. 

During this trip I found the dreamiest little corner of Main Street that was practically empty! This little side street has some great spots for photos. It really transports you to another time and gives you all of the Main Street feels, minus the screaming children in strollers. 

Another hidden gem of Magic Kingdom is Cinderella's Castle mosaic wall. How is this not a bigger thing?! This wall is so gorgeous. It is worth dodging people to get a shot in front of it!

Now let's talk about these ears... these ears are what dreams are made of let me tell you. Aloha Ear Design did it again when they created this gorgeous pair of Sleeping Beauty ears. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney princess movie. Naturally, I had to pick these beauties up! I opted for the crown and ears combination, but you can always get an interchangeable bow to replace the crown if you'd like. The crown has so many amazing details that make it super unique. While the ears are pink, but glow in the dark blue. How fun! 

Castle pics or bust amiright? Be sure to walk all around the castle for amazing views! The front obviously has some great photo opportunities, but I always get the best pictures on this little ramp. You can enter from either the left or ride side of the castle. Plus you can dodge people passing by so much easier from this angle. 

Here is a view of the back of this fun tee! This tee isn't available on Jadelynn Brooke, but here is a similar option
