Fashion Inspiration: Disney Pixar’s “La Luna” February 27th, 2013
Quite possibly the cutest and most detailed short of recent Disney Pixar releases, La Luna became a fan favorite when it was first shown as a lead-in to the movie Brave. The story follows a young boy who is set to carry on the family line of work, but in typical Disney Pixar fashion, this family’s particular line of work is far from normal.
Watch a clip of the short film below!
Even the short clip reminds me of why La Luna one of my favorites from Disney Pixar! Featuring everything from utilitarian classics to star motifs, this short is actually a great source of fashion inspiration. Below, I’ve created two looks inspired by the short film La Luna. Scroll down to see them!
Part of the Job
So your day job may not involve rounding up falling stars, but you can steal the family’s rugged style with a few key pieces. First, grab a classic button-down shirt and a pair of khaki jeans. Next, slip on a pair of combat boots to get an edgy look, and wear a newsboy hat similar to the ones featured in the film. To complete the outfit, rock a cute star necklace that pays tribute to the star motifs!
Look like a total star in this pretty spring outfit! Start by pairing a star-print dress with some classic beige wedges. Grab a satchel bag and put in earrings featuring anchors for a fun bit of flair. Finish the look off with a bracelet featuring tiny mustaches, like the signature ones featured in the film!

Fashion Inspiration: Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center May 16th, 2012
After such a positive response to our post on fashion inspired by Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, we’re back this week, bringing you more ideas for your wardrobe inspired by Walt Disney World’s popular Epcot Center.
One of the larger Disney parks, Epcot is enjoyed by young and old alike with its exciting Future World section, featuring thrilling attractions like Soarin’ and Mission: Space, along with its World Showcase, where you can go “around the world” in just a day. Special events throughout the year like the Flower and Garden festival in the spring and the Food and Wine festival in the fall make this park even more delightful.
While you may not believe it at first, Epcot can be a great source of fashion inspiration, even if you’re not a dedicated Disney fan. Don’t believe me? Below, I’ve created a series of outfits inspired by the park. Scroll down to view them all!
Future World Outfits
Soarin’ is an attraction like no other. Based off the popular ride Soarin’ Over California, from Disney’s California Adventure park, the ride takes you up and above famed California sights – from the beach to orange groves – and plays with your senses along the way!
For an outfit inspired by the ride, wear a pretty sky blue strapless dress with a boho chic lace-back cardigan. A pair of embellished t-strap sandals and daisy stud earrings finish the look that will have you ready to head off into the clouds…or maybe just summer break!
Mission: Space is quite possibly Disney’s most thrilling ride, taking its passengers on an adventure into outer space. Although it’s just a simulation, it allows Disney-goers to experience what it’s like to be an astronaut heading off into the galaxy.
For a look that’s out of this world, pair a trendy crop top with a pair of confetti sequin tap shorts. Add a blazer with sequin detail, a pair of black wedge sandals, and a statement ring for extra flair.
One of the most popular rides in Future World, Test Track takes you on an exciting journey through a vehicle testing facility.
Whether or not you enjoy speeding through test courses, you can capture the fun aesthetic the attraction gives in this outfit! Wear a bright orange peplum top with cute jean shorts. Slip on a pair of strappy sandals and for accessories, wear a polka dot bow headband and flower stud earrings.
World Showcase Outfits
The France Pavilion provides guests with a sample of the sights and sounds of the country. Capture its romantic charm with a pretty peter pan collar blouse with a pink high-low skirt. Add bow ballet flats, pearl earrings and a cute headband to finish off the girly look.
In the United Kingdom Pavilion, you can explore the streets of London without leaving Florida. Steal the pavilion’s classic, buttoned-up appeal with a pretty bow blouse in a bold red color with a pair of white chino shorts. A linen blazer in a neutral color and a pair of oxfords complete the chic and preppy look!
Guests of all ages can enjoy the lively atmosphere of the Mexico Pavilion. From the marketplace full of art and gifts from the country to the fun boat ride, this pavilion is definitely one to check out! To create a look inspired by this section, try a bold floral print strapless top with a pair of white denim shorts. Wear with colored t-strap sandals and a bright scarf to complete the look.

Fashion Inspiration: Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom March 28th, 2012
The Happiest Place On Earth, otherwise known as Walt Disney World, has been one of the most popular US vacation spots for about forty years. And Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom may not be the original, but it certainly is a favorite among young and old folks alike. With its six themed lands, the park is filled with fun attractions and rides for everyone’s tastes. You may even spot a character or two along the way!

Step back in time while walking down Main Street USA in this charming look! Wear a soft cream-colored shirtdress with a pair of neutral-tone patent leather Mary Jane pumps. Add a bright red patent leather belt around your waist and grab a blue polka dot cross-body bag for added flair. Pearl and rhinestone stud earrings and a key charm necklace add the finishing touches for the perfect feminine, vintage-inspired look!
Get ready to go on an exciting escapade when you step out in this look inspired by the daring Adventureland area. Pair a loose-fitting v-neck tee with a pair of boyfriend shorts, both in earthy tones. For a simple twist, put on a loop scarf with a fun geometric print and layer with a bohemian-look feather necklace. A pair of wedge sandals and a faux leather backpack complete the outfit.
You don’t have to head out west to dress like a cowboy! Steal Frontierland’s western charm with a plaid button-up shirt and a pair of skinny jeans tucked into cowboy boots. Wear a braided leather belt and matching bracelet, and put on a pair of horseshoe earrings to finish off this wild west look!
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue! Show a bit of your patriotic side inspired by the colonial Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom. Wear a bright red tee with a pretty pleated khaki skirt and a pair of cute and comfy ballet flats in blue.
