Disney Style – Minnie Mouse Vibes

IMG_5391

I’m so in love with this Minnie Mouse inspired ensemble!

If you know me well, you know that I am in LOVE with polka dots. Polka dots remind me of 2 of my favorite things – Minnie Mouse and I Love Lucy. I am drawn to red with white polka dots, black with white polka dots, and navy with white polka dots. Oh, and I usually only like polka dot designs when they are perfectly spaced apart. I know, it’s one of my weird quirks… Haha!

  1. Double Hooded Sweater – $54.99 from Mindy Mae’s Market
    • A friend tagged me in a Facebook shop boutique last week. My jaw dropped when I saw it. I’ve always loved the look of double hooded sweaters, but I don’t own any since I don’t get to wear hoodies often. I had to make an exception for this beauty.
  2. Disney Mouse Ears – $4.99 (YES, you read that right!) from Ulous on Etsy
    • I originally got a cute Minnie Mouse bow headband that were from Tokyo Disney. The only place I could find them was on eBay. Unfortunately they are uncomfortable on my big head. I was so happy when I found my new ears on Etsy. I also got black pair with white polka dots.
  3. “Be Quick” Clutch – $22 from Ju-Ju-Be
    • Yes, a “baby bag!” I have 2 other “Be Quicks” by Ju-Ju-Be. They are roomier than they look and they are machine washable. The included strap can make the bag a handbag or a wristlet. It doesn’t come with a crossbody strap, but I added one to it and love it even more. I hope by the time Sean and I have kids, Disney & Ju-Ju-Be will have an official collaboration!
  4. New Balance Minnie Mouse Shoes – $99.95 from Shop Disney or Zappos
    • I loved the New Balance x Disney collaboration from the get go! These shoes are so comfortable. I picked this design out of the collection because I loved that this pair is all black and minimalistic.

If you find any cute Minnie Mouse inspired looks, please send them my way! 🙂

Easy ways to add a Disney touch in your everyday style

Disney Touch

I don’t know about you, but I would wear my Minnie Mouse hoody to work everyday if I could! I unfortunately can’t in my profession. Even though I can’t wear my awesome LulaRoe Disney prints during the workweek, I am able to share my “Disney Side” in other ways.

Accessorize

PANDORA and Alex & Ani make amazing Disney inspired pieces. You’re bound to find something you’ll love from their collections and they’re always coming out with new designs. My favorite Alex & Ani bangle is Snow White inspired and says, “Whistle While You Work.” It’s definitely a nice reminder to look at, especially during a rough work day.

Another way to add a Disney touch to your style is by using a Disney purse, wallet, or wristlet. So many designers have launched Disney collections – Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke, LeSportsac, Coach, and Loungefly are just a few examples.

Disney Style

  1. Snow White “Whistle While You Work” bangle by Alex & Ani, $44.95 on ShopDisney.
  2. Red Hair Bow. I love big bows! Find them on Etsy or even on eBay.
  3. Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs 80th Anniversary Charm by PANDORA, $80 on ShopDisney.
  4. Disney Coach Wristlet. They are no longer available at the Coach Outlet, unfortunately. I have seen them on eBay.

DisneyBounding

Another way to add a Disney touch to your style is by “DisneyBounding.” You wear an outfit that is influenced by a Disney character, but it’s not necessarily a “costume.” An easy way to Disneybound is to wear colors and use accessories that your chosen character wears. For example, I absolutely adore Snow White. Snow White’s color palette consists of yellow, blue, and red. This is what I came up with at Disneyland:

Disney Bound - Snow White
Snow White herself even noticed me during Main Street Electrical Parade! It was such a sweet and magical moment.

Old Navy is a great place to find basic shirts and cardigans in an array of colors. I found both the yellow shirt and cardigan during the same shopping trip.

Here’s another example of DisneyBounding. I wanted to partake in Star Wars Day this year (May the Fourth be With You!), but since it fell on a work day I couldn’t wear any of my Star Wars branded shirts. I wore R2D2 colors that day – white, gray, and blue.

A great way to find character or color palette ideas is to look up #DisneyBound or #DisneyBounding on Instagram.

What are some ways you add Disney to your style? I’d love to hear your ideas!
