This shirt hasn't appeared on the blog often but it's one I don't think I will ever get rid of.  The print is super fun and the can be worn a lot of ways. I do always wear the same tank top underneath but I can wear it with jeans, shorts, skirts, etc. I think the last time it appeared on the blog was way back in 2018 when I wore it to Animal Kingdom in Disney World. Funnily enough, the first time it was on the blog (in 2014) I wore it with the same necklace! 

Everyone kept thinking I was my sister's dog Teddy when I was walking around the house in these. Christian even thought we had a dog in OUR house when I walked downstairs, ha ha. I do feel weird walking around stores when I'm jingling so I do avoid wearing them to the grocery store but I still love these sandals, especially because the name of the sandal is my middle name (and my late Grandmother's too!)

A couple weekends ago, on a lovely 90° Sunday, I went to the CT Blogger Babes Bohemian Festival at Bear's Smokehouse in New Haven. The second Lydia and I went inside we made a beeline for the Rebel Hair Salon braid bar. I asked for a couple braids that went into a ponytail so my hair would be out of the way in the crazy heat.  After getting our boho hair we walked around to check out the various vendors. Local stores like Erin Deluca Jewelry, Vintanthromodern and Kiyomi Beauty brought a selection of products for us to shop. I'm in a spending freeze for the next couple months so I just browsed.

After shopping it was time for flower crowns which I declined to make because mine would have been horrible in comparison with everyone else's, haha. Following that it was time for some really good barbecue! The pulled pork was delicious and my favorite item was a bacon covered meatball. I made sure to take a BUNCH home in a to go box for Christian (I still ate more of them, ha ha.) I was a horrible blogger and barely took any pictures at the event. I'll add a link to photos if/when the CT Blogger Babes post them!

On to the outfit! I took the bohemian theme as an opportunity to wear my newly altered jumpsuit! After 2 years of not wearing this jumpsuit I finally had my mom remove the sleeves for me! SOOOO much better. I only wore it once, for a few hours, in Positano. I found it for $30 on clearance at Anthropologie and bought it with that Italy trip in mind. Sadly it just felt too over the top for me because of the sleeves so I never wore it again. Now it has a new life as a beautiful sleeveless jumpsuit!

I wore this top on two occasions. The first was for a morning in EPCOT before going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. The second time was on my last day in Florida. I went to Magic Kingdom to meet up with a friend who just moved to Florida and we tasted our way around the park before I had to head back to my hotel to get the bus to the airport.

We went to Be Our Guest for lunch where I had the Grilled Shrimp kid's meal and we shared a Master's Cupcake (she hadn't had the grey stuff before!) Then we sampled two treats that I had on my list of things I needed to try/take cute pictures of. I had the Mermaid Donut at Prince Eric's Village Market and my friend Betsy had the Maleficent Waffle Cone at Storybook Treats.  Betsy also got a Witch Minnie Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple for the ride home!

The donut is a yeast donut with purple icing and sprinkles topped with white chocolate treasures from Ariel's Grotto. It was a pretty tasty treat and while it came with a price tag of $4.99 it was totally worth it for how fun it was! (Besides, we have a specialty donut place around here that sells similarly extravagant donuts for about that price.

The waffle cone is lime ice cream in a black waffle cone with purple sprinkles and two striped chocolate horns for $5.25. I had one of the horns and it was really good dark chocolate. Betsy said the ice cream was extra tart but super tasty!

People always ask how I can go to Disney so many times and not get bored. The answer is - it's always changing! There are new festivals, new rides and in the case of this trip, whole new sections of the park! My friend and I were super excited about Toy Story Land being open! We had to go 2 separate days to be able to ride both new rides with Fast Passes so we wouldn't have to wait in lines.

(Helpful Note: You can't get a Fast Pass for more than 1 Toy Story ride in your first set of 3 and the Toy Story rides also fill up WAY in advance. Luckily we stayed at a hotel so we could book them 60 days in advance which really helped.)

Yes, I know I'm wearing a Star Wars tee, but to be fair Star Wars was our other major reason for going to Hollywood Studios. We always have to visit our friend BB-8, get The Dark Side Chicken and Waffles at Backlot Express. and ride Star Tours (plus I didn't have any Toy Story stuff yet....I did buy a super cute kid's sweatshirt on our second trip to Toy Story Land.) This also looks like it would be very hot but the fabric is very thin so it was very comfortable even though the temperatures were pushing 90.

P.S. If you go this month make sure to get the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Coffin Cake at the ABC Commissary. Soooooo delicious!

And here we go with a TON of Toy Story Land photos! We had beautiful cloudy days which really helped with the Toy Story vibe. Gotta love the nod to Andy's bedroom wallpaper. Skip this part if you're planning on visiting the park and don't want to be spoiled. (I tried to avoid all photos and videos before I went)

The only problem with Toy Story Land is there is NO shade and it gets SUPER hot. We couldn't stay in that section of the park for long when the sun was out because we were getting baked. Luckily it was much better at night. So if you're planning on visiting in the warmer months bring a wet towel for around your neck or get one of those portable fans. You'll need it.
