Yoo-Hoo, Minnie!

My love for Disney only intensifies as I get older and I always try to find ways to sneak elements of it into my everyday life, whether it be through household items (my Disney mug collection is getting out of control), beddings (stuffed animals count as pillows, right?), clothes, or accessories. What can I say? I’m a Disnerd for life!

LeSportsac released another line of Minnie Mouse bags and accessories last fall called “Minnie’s Floral Park.” I’m absolutely bonkers for anything with a floral print, so I’m utterly head over heels for this specific collection! LeSportsac makes their purses out of heavy duty, lightweight nylon, which is perfect because who likes throwing a bulky purse over their shoulder that’s already heavy without putting anything in it beforehand? Not this girl. This is why I love using LeSportsac bags for everyday use, and they’re particularly great for a long day at Disneyland!

I put together a Minnie Mouse “Disneybound” with the LeSportsac Minnie bag and my navy blue and beige polkadot dress, hot pink belt, and hot pink Blowfish flats. Usually when I see people Disneybound any character, I notice that they’re faithful to the original color palette that’s associated with the designated character whose style they’re trying to convey. I try to do the same, but other times I like to breakout and just draw inspiration with little details. For example, my friend Brianna made this cute little daisy ring for me (pictured below) and I thought it fit the vibe of my Minnie inspired outfit since she was originally drawn with a hat that had a daisy on top of it. I’m super anal-retentive when it comes to details. Some of you may have noticed from past outfit posts. Hehe. 🙂


Are you a Disnerd for life too? Do you Disneybound? Let’s geek out about it in the comments section!

Minnie Mouse x LeSportsac Review

Once the last collection of LeSportsac and Disney’s  It’s A Small World collaboration debuted last year, I was hoping they’d be teaming up for more collections featuring other characters or attractions from the wonderful world of Disney — the Haunted Mansion (Dooney & Bourke did that already though, but I don’t see why they couldn’t do it too), dogs and cats of Disney (OMG, can you just picture a pattern with Lady & the Tramp and 101 Dalmatians and the Aristocats and every other awesome dog and cat character all over it?!), Disney Princesses (Snow White bags with sparkly apple charms PLEASE!), Mary Poppins (I will pass out of excitement if that ever happens), etc. So when they announced a line of Minnie Mouse bags and accessories last Fall, I was more than happy! And they’ve also gone on with a Tinkerbell collection featuring art by Disney Legend Marc Davis, and most recently just released a Monsters Inc. line with Pixar production designer Harley Jessup’s artwork. Hooray!

While I was down in SoCal for RunDisney’s 5k Family Fun Run, I got to go to the Happiest Place on Earth! I packed a little outfit inspired by Minnie which wouldn’t have been complete without LeSportsac’s  Ziptop Rollup tote! The tote is perfect for a day of park hopping at the Disneyland Resort because it’s roomy enough for all the essentials: wallet, water bottle, little snacks, and compact bag full of even more essentials (chapstick, bandaids, Aleve, lipstick, tiny spray on sunblock, etc), my bulky camera, and my Mary Poppins Funko Pop! toy with room to spare. I love using this tote for everyday use as well, and sometimes it’s perfect to take as an extra bag while shopping because it can easily be rolled up and it’s super lightweight.

The print truly captures Minnie Mouse’s essence with the bold polkadots which mirror the ones on her iconic dress and bow. Plus each dot features Minnie’s fashions throughout her 90+ years in showbiz, clearly showing off just how much of a fashion icon she truly is.

LeSportsac was kind enough to send along a little Kasey bag for me to giveaway to one of my readers as well, so be sure to look out for a giveaway post tomorrow to find out how you can win it!

Cheers,
Nina
