Minnie Mouse Polka Dots | Thrift Style Thursday

July 23, 2015

If you follow me on social media at all, then it is probably no secret that I LOVE Disneyland.  I have been to the park nearly every week (if not twice a week) since I got my pass in January – no exaggerating, it is one of my favorite places on the planet.  (I have had actually had an annual pass on and off for the past TEN years!!)

So, when I heard that this week’s theme – chosen by Carissa of Carissa Knits – was “Seeing Spots,” I knew I wanted to wear my polka dot skirt to create a Minnie-inspired, Disneyland-going outfit!

The skirt is actually a previous refashion from a fabulous 80’s dress (see the original post here!), which was easily turned into a fun, flirty skirt.  The shirt was a birthday gift from Grandma because she knows how much I love Disneyland, and the backpack is one of my original purchases from my first Disneyland annual pass 10 years ago!!  And, of course, I had to wear my super comfy walking shoes, my Nike high tops.

The details: Mickey shirt (gift) // polka dot skirt (thrifted, refashion) // Nike high tops (DSW) // Minnie Mouse backpack (Disneyland) // Minnie Mouse bow earrings (gift)

I absolutely LOVE these earrings - they were a gift from Derek, after I had been searching for a pair for months, he found them for me!

I know Disneyland sometimes gets a bad rap – yes it can be hot, crowded and definitely expensive – but to me, it’s also a place of magic, wonderment and childhood dreams.  It’s beyond cheesy, I know, but Disneyland will forever be a place of happy memories and magical fun!

Phew, now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s check out the rest of the Thrift Style Thursday crew – and new member Alison of Nouveau North Westerners – to see their polka dot looks!




 

What’s your favorite way to wear polka dots?  Okay, tell me truly, are you a Disneyland fan??

As always, thanks for reading!

    This is SO cute! I love the skirt and you can’t go wrong with Mickey and Minnie! I don’t blame you for loving Disneyland, if I lived close I’m sure I’d go there too! I have been to Disney World a few times and I know there are some differences, but it is one of my favorite places in the world.

      Thank you!! I totally forgot the backpack was polka dot print as well haha! These shoes are actually one of my favorite pairs to wear to Disneyland because they’re SO comfortable for walking around all day/night and they’re stylish, too! ;)
