Navy Mickey Mouse Dress with a Ruffle Trim

As I’ve mentioned in my last two posts, I absolutely adore the latest LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Mouse collection!

Honestly I was not sure how I would feel about this dress, but once I tried it on all of my doubts melted away. First, lets start off by talking about the fit. This dress has such a flattering fit!

The material is stiff enough to stand away from your body, but light enough to look nice and flowy. For a dressed up look, I paired this adorable dress with some vintage inspired nude Nine West pumps. (isn’t the side detail just darling!?)

My favorite part of the dress is… You guessed it: the details! The print is oh so adorable, and a perfect mix of Disney magic and subtlety. The little ruffles and buttons down the front are stunning, and add just the right girly flair!

This dress is perfect for a day of exploring in the happiest place on earth!

Fourth of July Festivities!

For this all American sweetheart, Independence Day is the one holiday that really screams summer! From all of the red, white, and blue, to barbeques, it’s such a fun day! The Fourth of July is also a day when we should all take a step back and remember the struggles this country has endured to gain its freedom.

I started off the day with a yummy strawberry and pineapple smoothie, since the U.S.A. is the pine{apple} of my eye! Lea and I came up with the idea of serving our smoothies in a hollowed out pineapple after our trip to Key West. We were tempted to buy some sugary drinks just because they were adorable, but decided we could do it just as well ourselves. I’m here to tell you, hollowing out a pineapple without a pineapple corer is no easy task! We added patriotic straws for a fun touch, and voila!

Of course no Fourth of July is complete with out a little pyro action, so we headed down to the lake to enjoy the beautiful fireworks display my community puts on every year. Then we had some real fun! I had seen other people write messages with sparklers and was dying to try it out, so I grabbed a candle, a few sparklers, my mom and her camera, and a couple of friends to try my hand at it. After a couple of test shots, we got a pretty adorable and patriotic result!

Although my normal color palate consists of pink, I always dress for holidays, and Saturday was no exception! I gave a little nod to Disney with this ensemble, as my skirt has fun little hidden Mickeys on it!

This item will definitely be a repeat offender! I added a tied up navy top, my jacks, some pearls and a monogrammed necklace, and was all set for the most important part of any outfit: testing its twirlability!
