The last of the Florida photos (sob)! I wore this outfit on our last night in Disney World, when we went to Epcot for hibachi and fireworks. This dress actually blends in pretty well with the surroundings of our hotel (we stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, though we actually didn't spend very much time there at all). I treasure this dress because it's an older ModCloth design that I completely missed out on, and I had tried to win it via an eBay option once before and lost out at the last second. I was really bummed about it, and intermittently checked eBay for a while afterwards to see if another would show up. Luckily, one did, and I didn't have to win an auction to buy it! It's a super-flattering dress, and I love that it has a layer of turquoise tulle underneath to give it some extra fluff. Plus, I love the off-the-shoulder detailing, and I think the print is such a unique floral! I nearly froze, even with my winter coat(!), but sacrifices must be made in the name of fashion! ;)
I saw this adorable take-out container purse when we were at Animal Kingdom, and I simply couldn't pass it up! It was $20 and not something I could find just anywhere, so I knew it needed to come home with me (though finding a spot in my suitcase did prove to be a bit of a challenge). We also lucked out and saw tons of animals on the safari ride while we were there:
I'm just glad that I was able to "reclaim" Disney World for myself, and that it's no longer colored by my previous relationship -- or at least, not so much so that it would keep me from going or enjoying myself. My trip with my mom was a whirlwind, and we both felt like we weren't able to just relax while there... but there's always next time! I'd also love to stay at the Boardwalk resort, since that was definitely my favorite of the ones we visited; it's so retro and has great restaurants, and it's within walking distance to Epcot, which would be great. I also feel like there wouldn't be as much pressure to see everything next time I go, but that's also because I hope there won't be as much time between visits! It's just soo expensive... I don't know how people can afford to go there so often!
Have a magical Monday!
