The Daddy Challenge

In honor of Father's Day...

I did a little reverse with this outfit. Who am I?

Drumroll please! bddddddddddd!

He's the daddy who loves his girl, and he will do anything to keep his daughter safe. He is King Triton. Please read his Wiki bio to see just how awesome he is! Click here.

The Character: King Triton

The Outfit: Now, I know the picture above does not show Triton's merman tail. As a quick reminder, it is mint-y color.
                   Mint-y top from TJ Max 2011
                   Khaki shorts from Tommy Hilfiger from 2008
                   Gold sandals from New York and Company 2011
                   I braided my bangs to represent a diadem :)
                   I wore pearl earrings again for the "Under the Sea" effect

The Disneybound Inspiration:

I am happy to say that I, like Ariel, have a Daddy who loves his girls and has always done what he can to keep us safe. He is the daddy who wears a Kermit watch, who stamps out disease and pestilence daily, who has a black belt in jujitsu, who can answer any kind of question about just about any sport (or he will look it up with his smartphone!), who talks about his Captain America shield made from a trash can lid when he was younger, and is an example to all!
Happy Father's Day, Daddy! Love you bunches and bunches, all the time, no matter what!

The Outfit I've Been Dying to Wear Since December Challenge

This was one of the first outfits I put together. I was sad that I couldn't wear it right away. It was 30 or 40 degrees outside and wearing shorts and REALLY bright colors would have
1. Probably resulted in frostbite
2. Been a fashion faux pas in January.

Drumroll please! bddddddddddd!

He is the faithful sidekick and friend. He is Flounder. Wiki has a great little bio on Ariel's special friend. Click here.  I have to say that real life flounders are incredible animals. How many creatures can say that their eyes start out on top of their flat body and with time each eye moves to its designated side? Well, flounders can't actually say it, but you know what I mean! :)

The Character: Flounder

The Outfit: Yellow shirt from American Eagle 2010
                   Turquoise shorts from Goodwill 2011
                   Silver belt from my mom 2012
                   Silver sandals from Target 2011
                   Pearl earrings from 2010--I feel like
                   they were appropriate for this "Under the
                   Sea" character.

The Disneybound Inspiration:

Have no fear fellas. There is a Flounder outfit for you too. 

Yeah...If someone wears this, I'll give him a big hug!

Of course I had to pose like Flounder...

Try it!

The Dreamy Challenge

This leading lady was the only blonde heroine I embraced this past month. I did 4 beautiful ladies with jet black tresses and a little doe with brown fur. I felt as if I needed to return to my roots...literally. :)

Drumroll please! bdddddddddd!

She is the beautiful Aurora. I believe Aurora is one of the prettiest of all the leading ladies. Her hair is the color of sunshine, and what do I love but sunshine. She wears pink, and I love pink. She's a princess. What more can Prince Philip ask for? He is one lucky guy. I will say that her movie is scary, but she makes it better by being glamorous.

The Character: Aurora*Sleeping Beauty

The Outfit: Pinky dress from Ross 2009
                  Owl necklace from my grandmother circa 1960s
                  Gold sandals from New York and Company 2011
                  Gold bracelet from New York and Company 2011
                  Gold headband from Kyleigh 2011---In this case, the
                  headband is a tiara.

The Disneybound Inspiration:

I hope this blog post didn't cause you to sleep. I do hope that the next time you close your eyes for a rest your dreams are sweet!

The Getting Down to Business Challenge

This character is spectacular. As always, the question is...who is she?

Drumroll please! bddddddddddddd!

She is the one and only Mulan. You may be wondering about the color scheme of this outfit. The gal behind Disneybound chose to design a Mulan outfit based on her cherry blossom side that attempts to make peace with the matchmaker. If you've seen the movie, you know that it doesn't turn out that great. The good news is that Mulan goes forward and SAVES all of China AND gets a man. It's a win/win situation. I do have to say that the matchmaker had it coming. She was kind of a pill.

The Character: Mulan

The Outfit: Purple Cardigan/shrug from Dress Barn 2011
                  Purple cami from New York and Company 2009
                  Cherry blossomy shirt from American Eagle 2010
                  Gray shorts from Target a gift in 2012
                  Silver sandals from Target 2011

The Disneybound Inspiration:

This is my "Let's get down to business" and save China face. I know that you are intimidated!

Take a listen to this SONG and conquer your day!
