I have such big news and it is so exciting.
I AM A DISNEYWORLD ANNUAL PASSHOLDER.
But this right here is like a level up. I was a pass holder for Universal but literally the second I became one, I got pregnant so that was all over. This is the first time I feel like an elite member of a theme park and I am so absolutely excited to take advantage of it. The moment Luna was born I knew I wanted her to be a Disney kid. I grew up on Disney and I can honestly say that it molded me and taught me a lot of great things. The most important: to dream. I love Disney’s message and although I can have my gripes here and there, I am a huge supporter of the Mouse. So the love was reborn when she came into the picture.
And here we are.
Look forward to a lot of fun Disney style posts in the year to come, and a whole lot of magic.
I’m not going to lie. The past few weeks have been real difficult over on the Melificent side of the world. Lets not even touch on all the current events unfolding that have both simultaneously broken my heart and angered me down to my very core. Of course, when I put my situation next to all that, I am eternally grateful to be alive, healthy and surrounded by love. But guys. Sometimes momming ain’t easy. And it takes a village. And, well. Some of us don’t have that village. So it’s been lots of hustling on the job side, while balancing all our to-do’s and being there for little Luna. This mom is exhausted.
I had been complaining that I wasn’t looking very cute lately, as I have been leaning towards more of the mom uniform and less of the fashion blogger. But, this past weekend I decided to blend them both. And what do you know? You really can find comfort and style while running after a toddler. Who knew?
Our latest Geek Girl Brunch Miami theme was Star Trek, and I was having a moment. I had the perfect cosplay – a science officer dress that I wore for Halloween a few years back. I happily tried it on and….it no longer fit. My post-baby body just wasn’t having that bodycon fit for anything in the world, so I had to improvise. I’m actually really glad I had to because I would have never stumbled on this amazing neon space themed crop tee.
It was the perfect homage to “the final frontier,” while still keeping me comfortable enough to drink one too many mimosas, socialize with our brunchettes and have an impromptu dance party. Yeah, you heard me. That’s how Miami does brunch: with DJ’s.
Can we also have a moment of silence (or squee-ing?) for Studio DIY’s Can’t Clutch This subscription? My pop tart clutch is TOO.MUCH. It literally gives me so much joy every month, and who doesn’t need a little bit of that in their life?
Date nights are far and few between these days, so when babysitting was offered at the last minute last week, we took it and ran! Although we didn’t end up making the right decision (not impressed with CityPlace Doral), we had a great time with each other catching up. In fact, I don’t think we talked about baby stuff once! Adult conversations: success.
At first, I have to admit that LulaRoe seemed silly to me. I thought it was clothes that housewives wore in the Midwest (no offense to housewives that may read my blog in the Midwest), so I didn’t even look into it. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised – I really dig their dresses, and especially skirts. They are SO comfortable. I still don’t like 80% of their patterns, but I find myself scouring through different consultant’s inventory to find the right ones. This Cassie skirt in mustard yellow is pure perfection. I feel sexy, while still comfy. I pumped up the comfort level by pairing it with an oversized crop tee + sneakers.
This outfit, my fresh new ‘do (bangs are back!) + plenty of vodka tonics were more than enough to keep this mama happy.
I was very excited to take control of the Disney Princess brunch for Geek Girl Brunch Miami. My life has been encompassed by Disney since having a child, and I have no shame when I say that Luna is a Disney kid. She is obsessed with Mickey Mouse and Elena of Avalor. Although Belle is definitely not my favorite princess (I know, gasp), I had to honor the new film by snagging this adorable replica of Belle’s famous gold dress for Lulu. I also LOVED the movie. Anyone else?
It was also the first time I wore a petticoat (ouch, itchy), and I loved feeling so flouncy and feminine. It was also sweet to see so many little girls looking at me like I truly came out of one of their fairytales. I can’t recommend Bonne Chance Collections enough for your kawaii clothing needs. I am beyond obsessed after making this purchase, and am pretty sure I’m just going to fill my closet with a bunch of their creations. As if you needed it, there is currently a flash sale going on – everything is $29.99! Thank me (or hate me) later.
