#CityDisneyStyle: 1 Sweater, So Minnie Outfits!

Disney Style, Style

DSC08609Happy Fall, one and all!  And hello!👋🏼 Sorry for my long absence.😅  No excuses, just haven’t been able to carve out time to create these #citydisneystyle posts for you all.  But I’m back💪🏼 and I have a few fun ideas I’d love to write about (both style and non-style related).  With a new season, are new beginnings, amirite?!😆

So with the start of sweater weather, I wanted to share how I styled this Zara Minnie sweater multiple ways!  And honestly by happenstance, each outfit is perfect for the different kinds of Fall weather — warm, mild, and chilly!

Outfit #1: Minnie Sweater + Embroidered Boyfriend Denim

Best for: mild Fall days

Since SF is currently experiencing mild Fall days, let’s start here! Pairing this Minnie sweater with a looser boyfriend denim is great for a crisp fall day! I loved wearing this sweater with my Siwy Minnie embroidered denim because it’s such a departure from my usual graphic tee paired with solid basics.  And sporting a bold graphic with a print has such a fun “mix & match” feel!DSC08567

To ensure this outfit looks loose rather an ill-fitting, I tucked the front of the sweater into my denim and cuffed the bottom of my pants.  Tip for shorties, it’s easy to look like you’re drowning in your clothes, so cuff your denim for a better length!DSC08630

And to dress it up a little, I added a small crossbody bag and a red lip. But for comfort, I wore my suede, beige Supergas. They were perfect for a long day of walking since they’re made of volcanized rubber, which doesn’t cave like other shoes!  I also love that it’s almost a perfect match for Minnie’s face color!😆DSC08625

Outfit #2: Minnie Sweater + Patterned denim skirt

Best for: warm Fall days

Since many of my friends live in SoCal, I had to include a warmer weather outfit option with this Minnie sweater!  Wearing a sweater with a patterned denim skirt, is a great way to “bundle up” when it’s still a little warm out.  And by “a little warm,” I’m talking high 60s AT BEST.  Similar to my previous outfit, you can easily wear a simple denim skirt for this look, but why pass up the chance to mix and match with a fun pattern or print!  Minnie obviously calls for fun dots!

I decided to wear chunky sneakers with this outfit to add a sporty contrast to my girlier denim skirt. And of course, to stay comfortable during a long day at the park.👍🏼  Instead of a usual crossbody, I went for a fun top handle Mickey bag that I bought Hong Kong! Because why not be a little extra with your Disney Style when you’re exploring an international Disney park.😆

Outfit #3: Minnie Sweater + Denim + Sleek Overcoat + Fun Sneakers

Best for: chilly Fall days

For a chilly fall day, layer, layer, LAYER! I love a timeless, sleek overcoat as it INSTANTLY makes anything you’re wearing underneath look more put together.  Honestly, try it this season, you will not regret it.

For this chilly fall day outfit, I kept it more simple with easy basics — clean cut skinny jeans, classic long coat, and comfy slip on sneakers. But of course, basic doesn’t have to mean boring! To add interest, I doubled down on that #DisneyStyle and wore my Mickey & Minnie checkered Vans, wore some fun small hoop earrings, a flashier pair of sunnies, and a red lip.  Adding small points of interest helps keep your outfit energetic and intriguing!

#CityDisneyStyle: NYFW

Snowy hair, don’t care.

For February’s #CityDisneyStyle post, I was originally planning to share how I style a Disney sweater multiple ways.  But when I found out I was able to get small peak of NYFW during my trip to New York, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to put together a Disney Style outfit that was a little more…extra than usual.😆  And speaking of extra, can we just take a minute to appreciate the hilarity of these “smoke” photos?!☁️🤣

So let’s jump right in and break down this outfit.  And we’ll start with the most obvious piece — this crazy H&MxMoschino gold sequin parka!  I’ve been meaning to break out this bad boy for the perfect occasion.  So when I was packing for New York, I knew it would be the item that I built my outfit around.  PLUS, it’s a padded parka that was perfect for the cold weather.

But what to wear that would simultaneously compliment, but not compete with the gloriousness of the jacket? 🤔  With Ilana‘s advice to wear a Mickey sweater, I knew this cropped Forever 21 sweater featuring a dazed Mickey would be perfect. I love that the graphic stands out from the jacket, but isn’t too busy to compete with it.  And the yellow stars were such a fun way to play up the shimmer of the jacket.

Not. Easy.

And as a BONUS, here’s one other way I wore this crazy sequin parka with some Disney Style flair!  After picking up this black and gold Mickey bag from the Shanghai Disney store, I knew it would look amazing with my gold parka and a sleek black outfit.  And for an extra touch of Mickey, I wore these gold Mickey stud earrings I picked up from the parks a year ago.  It was the perfect outfit for a late night dinner out in New York and SO easy to put together!

Since I didn’t get to share the original #citydisneystyle outfit I wanted to post for February, keep an eye out for it next month!  I’m going to share the different ways I like to style a Minnie sweater!🐭🎀 And since February is already over, I promise you won’t need to wait long.😉
