I bought this dress after having it on my watch list for 6 months. It was only $7 but I was trying to behave and not buy it, in the end I decided if I couldn't stop thinking about it I should just get it. I found it because I have a camisole version that is one of my Summer staples (so I was looking for it for an outfit post.)

When I first bought the top version I didn't think I would wear it often because of the deep v on both sides. I'm not the biggest fan of showing off my chest but I thought it was pretty.  Now it's one of my favorite things to wear in the warmer months. And I can even wear it in Fall with jackets. Time to add the dress into the rotation!

 I wore it with another Summer staple for its first outing - my Lanvin studded suede sandals!

I hope all my readers in the US had a nice long weekend! I spent my Monday (and today) watching Layla for my cousins. You all may remember I used to live with her (and my cousins) up until they decided to move to a different town last September. I've missed her quite a bit so it was fun to have a little sleepover with her in our house!

We've had a couple cooler days this past week but this was worn on another scorcher. I realized I haven't worn this romper on the blog all Summer! Poor thing not getting blog love this year. I think I've worn it a couple other times but wasn't in the mood for photos on those days.

I've had this dress for almost 8 years and it remains a favorite. The obvious reason is because it's purple, but I also love the "dancing lights" pattern. It's is just so much fun.  It also matches perfectly with my Marc Jacobs bag and Sseko sandals! I couldn't redo the same sandal tie I did in the original outfit (you can tie these any way you want with different color fabric strips!) so I had the photographer/fiance try his hand at it. I think he did a pretty darn good job!

The original:
We've still had a few chilly days here and there so I've been able to wear some of my lighter, non-full sleeve sweaters. I wasn't in the mood to wear all of my rings on this day so I wore one that was passed down from my paternal Grandmother. It's a really intricate ring with 4 opals and a tiny ruby in the middle. I don't wear it too often because a) it doesn't go with the rest of my rings since it's gold and b) I'm afraid to lose or chip it.

Day 3 was our big day! We got to Magic Kingdom at 9am and stayed until midnight. The park closed at 6pm for the general public and from 7-12 we enjoyed Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party with less crowds! Our first stop of the day was The Little Mermaid ride followed by breakfast at Be Our Guest. I was able to snag reservations for us there the day before thanks to people cancelling reservations. I had been checking almost every day to see if any popped up.

After breakfast we went from ride to ride until it was time for Mickey's Christmas Party. Before the party we had a much coveted reservation for dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. I'll share more about that below! Then during the party we watched a couple shows, part of the parade and the Christmas fireworks show! We also made sure to go and get all the free cookies, hot chocolate and pretzels at different locations throughout the park! There were also character photograph spots throughout the park but we decided to focus more on enjoying tasty snacks.

And now on to my favorite part of the day! Dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. As I mentioned last week, reservations are really hard to come by so it was a Christmas miracle! Here's how it works:
  • Show up at your reservation time and check in
  • Head into a room in the castle to get a photo taken with Cinderella
  • Sit down and enjoy your surroundings until your name is called
  • Head upstairs to the beautiful dining room and take your seat
  • Order your dinner - you get a drink, first course, entree and dessert with your meal. I had the Castle Salad, Pan-Seared All Natural Chicken and "The Clock Strikes Twelve"
  • Take photos with various princesses - we had Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine and Ariel
  • Get your magic wand (or sword) and make a wish during the Wish Ceremony
