Sartorial Saturday–Disney Chic

The best souvenirs of a trip are the ones you can wear, and I picked up a whole outfit’s worth before and during our trip to Walt Disney World!

Just as I did with my Kyber Crystal necklace, I decided to order this beautiful Disney World 50th Anniversary dress before we left for our trip. I didn’t know for sure if I would actually bring it with (spoilers…I did!), but I knew I wanted to have it as a wearable memory. Lucky for me, the Disney Dress Shop dresses tend to have a retro feel, and this shirtwaist dress definitely fits my personal style!

The print is beautiful, featuring the castle and fireworks in the anniversary color scheme, as well as embroidered 50s scattered throughout.

While we were at the Magic Kingdom, I picked up a Loungefly mini backpack that matches the Minnie Mouse ears I found at the same shop (the Emporium). It has the same castles, fireworks, and 50s as the dress, plus the major Disney characters (Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, and Chip and Dale). A helpful store employee even found me what she called the “perfect bag,” (they’re all a little different) with a 50 right in the middle of the front pocket!

The dress also has a pretty yellow belt. I’m also wearing a silver belt underneath, because I can never tie a belt tight enough. And did I mention the pockets?!?

I’ve got a whole Disney World 50th Anniversary look!

Besides the Minnie ears, I accessorized with my Cinderella key necklace, a single gold glitter bangle, and a pair of Minnie Mouse hoop earrings that are another souvenir of the trip:

I mentioned that I brought the dress on the trip…here’s a look at my outfit right outside the castle!

I’m really glad I found these special pieces that not only commemorate our trip, but also the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World!

Sartorial Saturday–Spaceship Earth

I’ve never really considered myself to be a Disney person. But when I saw this dress by Disney, inspired by what might be the most famous geodesic dome, Spaceship Earth, I feel in love. Luckily for me, Ryan happened to notice, and bought me this beautiful dress for my birthday last month!

The print and simple colors of grey and white really appealed to me. And while the skirt isn’t as full as lot of the skirts I wear, it does have a nice flare:

I especially love the accessorizing options, because this dress goes with everything! Here I’m wearing purple and silver (with just a splash of blue on my brooch), but I’m looking forward to pairing it with yellow, pink, and darker shades of grey (and probably other colors, too!).

Did I mention that St. Louis is also home to a fairly notable geodesic dome at the Missouri Botanical Garden? I think this dress will also be a great option for the next time we visit the Climatron!
