Dressing For Disney: Alice in Wonderland

DressingforDisney_AliceInWonderland

For today’s Disney inspired outfits we are going to Wonderland with cute park-friendly looks I put together for both my daughter and I.

Since it is acceptable for kids to wear full costumes in the parks, my little Alice will be wearing an adorable costume dress and matching headband I found on Aliexpress.  It is a lightweight cotton and couldn’t be cuter with it’s frilly sleeves and apron.  A lot of the princess dresses tend to be long gowns, but the short length of this costume makes it perfect for riding the spinning teacups or hopping on the carousel.

Dressing for Disney: Up

DressingforDisney_Up Inspired

I absolutely LOVE the Disney/Pixar movie Up.  It makes me tear up every time, but it is one of the few movies I could actually watch over and over and never get sick of.  Plus, it has a bulldog in it so that ‘s always a good thing in my books!

I wasn’t planning to do an Up inspired look for our Disney World trip, but I fell down a rabbit hole on one of my Aliexpress searches and came across this colorful statement necklace and earring set that I was immediately drawn to.  My love for the necklace grew exponentially when I realized the colorful teardrop shaped beads were much like the enormous bouquet of colorful balloons in Up.

Dressing for Disney: Beauty and the Beast

Since starting to plan for our Walt Disney World vacation, I have become a little obsessed with Disney Bounding.  For those not aware, this is when you channel your favorite Disney character and dress in similar colors and styles inspired by their look.  It is not meant as a costume to look exactly like the character, but rather a more subdued nod or tribute to that character.

For my first set of looks, I was inspired by one of my all time favorite Disney movies: Beauty and the Beast.  It has been hugely popular over the past year with the release of the new live action film and I knew my daughter would be excited to wear the look with me.
