I brought seven dresses for eight days. I was rather frivolous with the dress assortment, but everything else was utilitarian: a button-down shirt, a hoodie, two hats, two bags, and three pairs of comfy footwear. I always bring at least two pair of comfortable shoes on a trip. This time, it was a pair of sneakers and flat sandals. I love to fly in my cowboy boots, so they made the trip, too. The boots came in handy when it poured rain for an entire day.
Day One – Flight and Magic Kingdom
Hoodie, Disney. Dress, Eddie Bauer (thrifted). Belt, thrifted. Jeggings, Mossimo. Hat, Charlotte Russe. Brooch (on hat), thrifted. Bag, Nine West. Earrings, Monica D. Cuff, Epcot Canada. Sunglasses, Xhilaration.
Yes, people stared at my cowboy boots at the Magic Kingdom. They weren’t common. (I saw only one other person wearing western boots during our entire stay.) I love ‘em, though.
The chocolate-covered banana was one serving. The giant lolly: 19!
Day Two – Epcot
Hoodie, Disney. Dress, Jams World (thrifted). Hip bag, Happy Cow. Sneakers, Champion (thrifted). Hat, Target. Earrings, Monica D. Cuff, Epcot Canada. Sunglasses, Xhilaration.
Epcot is my favorite park. Predictably, I love the world showcase, but I also like the cheesier elements: Journey Into Imagination, Club Cool, Captain EO (I saw the original in Disney Land!), and, of course, Spaceship Earth aka The Giant Golf Ball. Beefy loves it too and took about a million pictures of it with our fisheye lens.
Day Three – Hollywood Studios
Dress, No Boundaries. Belt, thrifted. Hat, Charlote Russe. Brooch (on hat), thrifted. Earrings, Monica D. Sandals, Life Strides (thrifted). Bag, Nine West. Bracelet, Epcot Morocco.
Both pairs of my walking shoes were thrifted. I wore the little champion sneakers (pictured on Day Two) when I visited Disney World two years ago and they are still holding up. The flat sandals I wore on day three were comfortable and non-skid. They also happened to match the bracelet I bought at Epcot Morocco.
Day Four – Blogoversary
Dress, Frederick’s of Hollywood. Hat, Charlotte Russe. Brooch, thrifted. Sneakers, Champion (thrifted). Earrings, Monica D. Sunglasses, Xhilaration. Bracelet, Epcot Morocco.
When I wasn’t wearing my Blogoversary outfit, I was wearing this little sundress (and my new bracelet!)
Day Five – Animal Kingdom
Dress, Mossimo. Shirt, One Star (thrifted). Hip bag, Happy Cow. Hat, Target. Earrings Monica D. Cuff, Epcot Canada. Sandals (not pictured), Life Strides (thrifted).
I felt safari-worthy in this ensemble. My friend, the giraffe, agreed.
Day Six – We Built an Ark
It rained and rained and rained. Due to the wind and cold, I pretty much wore the same thing as Day One - with the addition of a super stylish poncho. We were too cranky to take pictures.
Day Seven – Epcot (again)
Poncho and hoodie, Disney. Dress, Roundy Bay (thrifted). Belt, thrifted. Sneakers, Champion. Hat, Target. Sunglasses, Xhilaration. Cuff, Epcot Canada.
The day started as miserably as Day Six ended, but improved from there. Beefy and I had saved all of our Disney Dining Plan snacks to “graze around the world” at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Thankfully, the rain tapered off so that we did not have to eat soggy snacks.
Day Eight – Magic Kingdom and Flight
Navy dress, Forever 21 (thrifted and overdyed). Splotchy dres, Mossimo. Belt, thrifted. Boots, Dan Post. Bag, Nine West. Hat, Target. Earrings, Monica D. Cuff, Epcot Canada.
By day eight, we were worn out, but I insisted we revisit the Magic Kingdom for my very favorite attraction: Tom Sawyer Island. Beefy sat in a rocking chair while I explored the cave, mine, bridges, fort, and secret passage.
I was pretty happy with the clothing I brought. If I had realized it was going to pour, not just sprinkle, I would have brought a rain jacket and an umbrella. The poncho worked in a pinch. It remains in my suitcase for the next time we visit.
