The Force Is Strong With This One

In order to get the full feeling of satisfaction from our still valid Disney tickets, Jason and I took a weekend away to celebrate our anniversary (three weeks beforehand) and go to Star Wars weekend. Obviously, the two things didn't match up, but we make do. We focused in on getting all the Star Wars special stuff we could - from a delicious chocolate cupcake with a chocolate Darth Vader to a fruit cocktail. Drinking around kids at noon is so totally normal. I jest.

I look like the happiest person with that Stormtrooper. It was only seconds before he got accosted by about 20 foreign teenage girls. This was one of the most relaxing and fun Disney trips - usually I never pair relaxing with Disney, but we took our time, managed to stand in line for very little, and only rode a scant few rides before retiring home for a shower. I'm super proud of the fact I don't look like a hot mess of sweat in these photos. The Star Wars top is totally a dress I'm wearing under the skirt and I also have workout shorts on.

I managed to get a vintage Artoo necklace off eBay. I'm pretty proud of this 10-something dollar purchase. It's the little things.

  19. Could there BE a more perfectly paired top and occasion? You are the queen of pairing events and clothing though. Love it. Congrats on your anniversary!

  20. Your R2-D2 necklace is wonderful. You do look so happy with the storm trooper. I wonder how hot they get in those costumes though! Poor guys.

  21. Oh man I love your Star Wars themed outfit! The dress works perfectly as a top. What a cool print. And your necklace was a fantastic find! So cool!

  22. I love it when you wear this dress! It really is perfect for tomorrowland :). I can't remember one time where Disneyland (or world) wasn't considered stressful. You were very lucky this time around!
