Like a Disney Princess

 I took these pictures on a windy day. It was right before this big old storm hit South Carolina, and putting my tripod up seemed pretty treacherous. Most of the pictures turned out like this:
 At least it was warm! Unfortunately, I had a smudgey smudge on my lens the whole time I was photographing and I didn't notice it! But I did feel just lovely in this outfit. If I could wear this every day, I probably would.
 My friend Amanda told me this shirt reminded her of Kokoum. You know, from Pocahontas? With the little bear paw prints on his chest? Haha. I do really like that movie, despite the special edition DVD including the extra love song Mel Gibson sings (If you've heard it, I'm sorry). But it's not my favorite Disney movie. My favorite is Mulan! Closely followed by Hercules. I also like Aladdin and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the Princess and the Frog! I mean, I really love most of them. For all the grief Walt Disney gets for being a douchebag, he really is responsible for some of the most influential children's entertainment (and some amazing feats in the animation industry!) Which one is your favorite?

  1. Love this outfit! The floral crown + mermaid shirt is a very princess-y win! The knee socks are super cute too :) I'm totally with you on the Hercules love too, but I'd have to say my fave is Beauty & the Beast!

  2. I love this outfit, the floral crown and adorable mermaid shirt are perfect! And hooray for you illustration! When you said Kokooum I could TOTALLY see it, SO cute! I have so many favorite Disney movies I pretty much love them all!

  3. Everything about this is so pretty! The floral crown, the adorable shirt, the lace skirt, the shoes... all just lovely. Oh man, who doesn't love every single Disney movie? Mine was always The Little Mermaid when I was a kid because my friends told me I looked like Ariel because of my hair haha. Good luck in the storm!

  4. I loved sleeping beauty, but now my favorite is Tangled! I guess I identify with the girls with long blonde hair...haha go figure! You're adorable btw...a shell shirt is such an adorable idea and I love your flower crown!

  5. So pretty!! I love that skirt. I don't know if I can choose a favorite Disney princess... I guess the one most like me is Rapunzel though! And I liked Pocahontas and Ariel as a child.


  6. I actually like Mel Gibson's singing! It's perfect for John Smith.

    That shirt initially made me think of Ariel, but I can totally see Kokoum.

    Sleeping Beauty was my favorite as a kid (and Maleficent is still my favorite fictional character of all time), but I appreciate The Hunchback of Notre Dame with an adult's eye, and it's a damn good rendering of one of my favorite books.
