Dapper Days~ What I'm Packing





Hooray!  I'm finally joining "Three Things Thursday", hosted by pal Heidi of Heidi's Head fame.  Since I am doing some unusual packing and preparation for my upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort, I thought I'd share...

It's been ages since I packed for a Disney Park and didn't start with running shoes, tutus and running bras.  There will be no racing this weekend!!  Instead there will be a focus on glam, nostalgia and Disney camaraderie, for I'm traveling to my very first Dapper Day.   Headed into it's third year, these twice-yearly events take place in Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and Disneyland Resort Paris.  As I set off for Orlando this weekend, this is what I'm packing:

1.   A DRESS  No, not a sundress or moo moo, a dressy dress.  With matching shoes.  And jewelry.  Oh, my!




2.   Curlers and super-sonic hairspray.  I'm not sure how my vintage styling will hold up in the Florida heat and humidity, but I'm giving it my best effort.





3.   NAIL POLISH.  Yes, I'll be a chipped mess by the time I return, but I'm going all-in.  Here's the link to my Pinterest Dapper Days Board; which design do you think I should choose??


Dandy!!

  1. Wow, you get to go to Disney again! What fun! You are going to look great! I like the red nails with the white Polk a dots! I also like the white dress you have shown, the red Minnie dress and also the black polka dots. Everything looks cute! Have you seen the red Minnie dress that they have at the parks? I saw it first at the GF gift shop last year and wanted to buy it. When I saw it again this year I contemplated and and thought "now where would I really wear this too"!

  3. I love your dress!! I think the nails with the one Mickey on each finger would be so cute with it. Understated but still completely Disney. I can't wait to see your pictures!!
