Hi all! Here’s this week’s Disneybounds for the March Challenge! There were some actual challenges and a lot of extra planning put in this week, as we had a snow storm (so I stayed at my mom’s one night!) and there was an unfamiliar theme. (I am hopeless on A Wrinkle In Time, I read the book in college and it made no impression on me, and I didn’t see the movie yet.)
This one was a bit of a cheat, as I had it already, from Dapper Day this November. But, I did make it a little more day to day appropriate. I’m not wearing pearls, or the bow, or saddle shoes, or the crinoline. It’s still dressier than I would normally get for work, but since I was in a crummy mood (due to snow storm and having to go to work, even just for the morning as I did.) it gave me a little lift to look nice. The outfit is a houndstooth dress, a purple belt and a purple cardigan. I’m wearing tights and flats with it for work (and because it was kinda cold!)
Theme: Disney Heroines
Character: Mary Poppins
I’m so so so excited for Mary Poppins Returns, that I decided that I’d channel her practical perfection for the day. The same white blouse as my Wendy bound from last week, but this time with a royal blue pencil skirt, and a red belt! *Snap!* I think it gets the new Returns look across while also paying tribute to a few of the classic costumes!
Theme: A Wrinkle In Time
Character: Mrs. Who
I haven’t had a chance to see this movie yet. (I saw Call Me By Your Name this weekend because I was hanging out with Crystan and she is my most grown up friend who wouldn’t be interested in my kiddie magical space movie!) Anyway, I went for a take on Mrs. Who, played by Mindy Kaling. I’m wearing a black maxi skirt, a grey tee shirt and wrapped in a blue shawl/scarf. Kind of ethereal and witchy, but also very playful.
Theme: 101 Dalmations
Character: Horace And Jasper
I had initially planned on channeling Cruella, but then I realized her dumb henchmen would be easier and a little more fun! Jeans, a brown teeshirt and my oversized brown blazer did the trick. (The picture is a little dark. I found a new angle for my mirror selfies so this won’t be a thing anymore!)
Theme: Underrated Disney Characters
Once again, I was trying to come up with something that fit into my “yoga pants and comfy shirt” weekend vibe, and I remembered this magenta tunic and immediately thought of one of my favorite “forgotten princesses” Broadway’s Aida. (I’m sort of obsessed with Aida. Not as much as my sister though.) Hell, she’s even underrated in the show that bears her name, as mostly people talk about Amneris. (Also my facebook went bonkers for this one, because I know too many theater geeks.)
Theme: Disney Princess
I had initially planned on Cinderella (duh!) Until I remembered that I had this gold sweater that’s the exact color of Tiana’s diner waitress uniform. So, that made this one easy. I’m also wearing my favorite black stretchy work pants. (If you cared about which generic black bottom I’m wearing!)
Theme: Aladdin Characters
Took me a minute to get this one together, but I figured it out. For Aladdin day, I went with Abu, in elephant mode. I’m wearing a black skirt (I own so much black, y’all it’s absurd!) and a grey shirt, and a maroon sweater to be his vest. TA DA!
So that’s this week! It’s snowing (again) (oof!) I’m definitely ready for spring, but we’ll see when it hits!
