{outfit} Celebrating the Holidays at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

On the first day of our trip we cheated on Disney and went to Universal to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter all decked out for the holidays! This was the first year that both parks were decorated and there was even a light projection show on Hogwarts Castle. The show goes off about every 20 minutes after dusk, which is super convenient if you can't be there at a specific time. There's just something so much more magical about Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley when they're decked out for the holidays!

We made sure to ride Escape From Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express while we were there since my sister hasn't been to Universal since Diagon Alley opened. We also rode The Mummy (one of my other faves) and the Jimmy Fallon ride. I was hoping to ride Hulk, since it's another favorite, but it wasn't working when we wanted to ride and we had so much else going on.

I dressed on theme by wearing a green snakeskin sweater even though I'm not a Slytherin. This was the only day I wore sandals on the trip because it was so cold! I brought these jeans hoping to wear them with sandals because they don't look good with boots, but warmth is more important than fashion so I wore them with boots the rest of the trip.

Cardigan: Banana Republic, Sweater: T.Babaton (Aritzia), Jeans: M.i.h Jeans 'Farrah' Tomboy cropped jeans (Net-a-Porter), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea' (bought in Greece), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika'

  1. I bet it would look so amazing there all decked out for Christmas - and at least you got some great shots of those jeans paired with sandals before practicality won out and the boots came out.
