Disney Bound Merida | Thrift Style Thursday

September 17, 2015

Have you heard of Disney Bounding??  Basically, it is the practice of wearing an outfit inspired by a Disney character to one of the Disney theme parks.  As a huge Disney fan and current annual passholder, I have been dying to try this myself!

Luckily, I am the host of today’s Thrift Style Thursday, so for this week’s theme – Fanfare – I challenged my fellow thrifty fashionistas to come up with a look showing off their favorite, well, anything!  For my look, I decided to channel my inner bravery and create a modern Disney Bound Merida!

The details: green shirt (Savers) // green jeggings (Walmart) // brown leather boots (Target) // mint green tank top (Old Navy) // gold bangle (gift) // green bracelet (handmade) // pendant necklace (handmade)

To me, it isn’t just Merida’s bravery when riding her horse, Angus, or shooting her bow and arrow that counts, but her willingness to own up to her mistakes and embrace her flaws that makes her a truly inspiring character.  Plus, her Scottish accent and crazy family are a lot of fun, too!  ;)

    That’s a perfect outfit to walk around all day at Disneyland and still be comfortable.

      Totally! I think that’s the best part of Disney Bounding, you get to dress like one of your favorite characters without the discomfort of wearing a costume all day! ;)

    I adore your Disney Bounding ensemble Kristi! It’s also very Peter Pan to me! ;-)
    Seeing you in the earth tone colour reminds me one of my posts; also about wearing the earth tone:

      Thank you so much!! I had a lot of fun with this one, and I thought, too, that the all green could be a couple different characters! :)
