Did you all survive the Disneyland photo onslaught?
That was only phase one, I suppose, because today I’ve got our Disneyland style and next week, a round up of all the tips I learned from traveling to The Happiest Place On Earth.
I assumed when planning an October Disney trip that we’d be packing for warm Fall weather. But, no. It was full on Summer-esque. Solid 80s all day long, only dipping into the high 60s at night. So in the days before we left I modified our bags and prepped for one last round of Summer style.
Day one was Cinderella Day according to Jemma. She had an adorable Cinderella inspired dress that we layered with leggings to make it ride appropriate. For footwear, she packed both Saltwaters and Nike tennis shoes, but ended up wearing her Saltwaters nonstop. She has narrow feet and they just fit her perfectly. Plus, after all summer and our Yellowstone adventure they are super broken in.
I took my Nike Frees and Birkenstocks so I could alternate foot support. I’m so glad I did! My feet definitely needed to switch it up with all the miles I logged around the park. Day one for me was a basic Liz Lange tank and regular ancient Old Navy shorts that apparently have a massive amount of stretch since they still button :) Plus, my every day accessory which is part of a big ol’ Nordstrom sale – the Hobo Goldie Embossed Leather Crossbody Bag. It was beyond perfect for the essentials I needed on me while we traversed Disneyland.
Day two was Ariel Day and Jemma’s 5th birthday! We spent most of the day at California Adventure and this summer I have definitely fallen in love with the coolness of short stretchy dresses. This one first made its debut at Yellowstone too. Both my dress and tee are actually non maternity and oldies but goodies that warranted being a part of my travel wardrobe. I added my favorite Madre Beads diffuser necklace and the greatest Minnie Ears of all from Cheers For Big Ears.
Jemma’s Ariel tee was a clearance find at the Disney Store. Seriously, stock up on outfits there before you travel to Disneyland, they’re always having great sales! Her Ariel inspired Minnie Ears were also purchased from Cheers For Big Ears.
Finally/sadly … Day Three. First of all, if you ever want to feel like a giant … find your way into Pixie Hollow and snap a photo with Tinker Bell. Jemma wanted our final day at the park to be Snow White Day. Her dress was made by her talented Mimi (my mama) and the red glitter headband was only $1 at JoAnns. It’s one of the ones from her Etsy shop which is currently not stocked, but totally email me if you need a fabulous/cool/comfortable/washable princess dress!
My GAP striped dress is a fave from summer sales. My sister and I actually both got one! Take note though, it was only $25 in stores. It’s also non maternity and fits great now and will be a staple down the road too. Woohoo!
