I love going to Disney, but even more so, I love wearing fancy outfits to Disney inspired by all of my favorite characters. But what I love most of all is going to Disney all dressed up during the holidays. The parks are decorated beautifully for the holidays. The Florida weather is usually pretty bearable, and sometimes, it actually feels cold. Christmas music is playing everywhere, and it just put me in such a festive, happy mood to celebrate my favorite holiday.
This year, I have been blessed to have gotten to know some wonderful ladies online who love dressing up and going to Disney just as much as I do (I’m so glad for more friends who have Disney passes). We wanted to have a Disney day before Christmas, and about two weeks ago, that’s just what we did. But rather than just do a basic character bound like we usually do, we decided to dress up as Christmas princesses.
I searched my closet trying to decide which princess I wanted to be, and more importantly what pieces in my closet would work for our ‘Christmas princesses’ group bound. I finally decided that I would dress up as one of the classics – Aurora, Sleeping Beauty, Briar Rose, etc.. whatever you would like to call her!
In the 1950’s classic, the fairies can’t decide on whether Aurora’s dress should be pink or blue, so they are constantly fighting about and changing the color of her dress with their wands. So, rather than just wear an all pink outfit to represent Aurora, I decided to create an outfit with both elements of pink and blue in it.
I found a blue cardigan in my closet and thought it would be perfect in case it ended up being a little cooler than anticipated at the parks. Luckily I have one one pink skirt that I was able to make work for this look – a light pink tulle skirt that has enough room to fit a petticoat underneath. I thought I needed to incorporate more blue into my outfit, so I added a pair of blue ballet flats and some baby blue vintage pearl gloves that belonged to my great grandmother. To really feel like a Christmas Disney princess, I tied the rest of my outfit together with a light beige vintage style purse that I found at Goodwill, a pink vintage hat and a white shawl (both of which also belonged to my great grandmother).
Here you see Snow White (Paola), Elena of Avalor (Valentina), and Ariel (Kirsten). Oh yeah, and there’s me again, too.
We also met Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, Elena, and Tinkerbell… Tinkerbell was our favorite.
Unfortunately since most of the pieces in my outfit were thrifted or vintage pieces, you probably won’t be able to find them anywhere. However, I am wearing a light pink petticoat with this outfit, and if you would like to know where you can get it, I have shared the Amazon link below:
Christmas is my favorite time of year, and even more than I love going to Disney at Christmas, I love celebrating the birth of Jesus and how He came to this earth as a baby 2,000 years ago.
“Behold, a virgin shall be child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Matthew 1:23
I hope you all have a joyous Christmas this weekend, and I hope you enjoyed this post featuring my friends’ and I’s ‘Christmas Princesses’ bound. We had a blast hanging out in the Kingdom and we can’t wait for more days filled with Disney magic and beautiful clothing in 2017.
