The title of this blog post is somewhat misleading because I am completely the opposite of being under the sea. Right now, I’m up in the air on my way to Hawaii! Or maybe I’ve already landed. I don’t know. Hawaii is 3 hours ahead of my usual time, and I suck at even the most basic of math problems so trying to figure out where exactly I am at this very moment is giving me a headache. Anyhow, I’m really excited since I haven’t been to Hawaii since I was 15. My cousin is getting married this weekend on Oahu, but I’ll be staying there for a whole week. Weeee!!!
Tropical locations aren’t completely my thing (yes, I know I’m weird), but we’re staying at Aulani! Disney magic all day, every day!!! Y’know what I’m sayin’? I am going to be eating ALL THE DOLE WHIP.
Since today is Thursday, I decided to post a little throwback outfit to something I wore to Disney’s California Adventure last month. My dress has silhouettes of Ariel all over it and I just added my crinoline to give it some extra oomph. Now that I think about it, it probably would’ve been better if I wore a lavender cardigan and my orange-y/yellow flower clip to emulate Ariel’s color palette more. But oh well! I like the way this ensemble turned out, and I think it’s pretty clear that it’s an Ariel Disneybound outfit, right?
I also packed this outfit for Hawaii sans the crinoline — I heard that it’s kinda rainy and hot (uuggghh) so I think I would be insanely uncomfortable if I walked around wearing it. Don’t be surprised if you see it on the blog again!
I’m bringing my laptop with me since I still have to work on things for Wear Your Voice Mag, but I’m not sure if I’ll be updating the blog throughout the week. I’mma be on vacation afterall! You can count on me to upload tons of pictures on Instagram though. If you don’t follow me on there yet, you can find me via @lefancygeek. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Love that dress! And yay for Aulani! It’s so much fun staying there. I still get excited when I see characters (says the lady in her 30s).The humidity has been super killer this summer. Staying in the A/C helps. Oh and there’s a self serve Dole Whip machine at The Lava Shack near the pool. ?
I love Hawaii! I’m so jealous! I hope you have a great time!
You look adorable, and that carousel is amazing! I’ve never been to Hawaii but everyone I know says it’s incredible. Have a wonderful time!
Have so much fun!
I really have to get my hands on some crinoline to make some of my dresses and skirts really pop. I love the way you style yours!
Mermaids! ❤ Have fun in Hawaii 🙂
Eeee! That dress is so lovely. I didn’t even notice the Ariel print until you pointed it out. I thought it was just a sensational jacquard print, but no, it’s even more awesome than that!
Oh one day I will get to stay there and the dress is too cute!! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures.
