With a family trip to EuroDisney on the horizon, my fashion thoughts have swung firmly in the direction of all things Mickey and Minnie. Having been to Disney World in Florida before and frankly been a little disappointed the apparel on offer, I’ve decided to shop-ahead and show up with a suitcase full (or maybe just a few choice pieces) of character clothing rather than rely on finding anything decent there. So, my research has commenced and given that a Mickey Mouse t-shirt can be for life, not just for a long-weekend in the Magic Kingdom, I thought I’d share some of my best finds here.
Boohoo Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt – Asos.comOkay, so just for avoidance of doubt, I shan’t be wearing the slutty ripped jean shorts and over-the-knee boots on holiday at Euro Disney – hashtag inappropriate (especially at the ripe age of 41!), but this grey marl sweatshirt from Asos will be just perfect for a Disney weekender that’s not taking place in the guaranteed sunny climes of Florida. This will see me sorted for chilly days or cool evenings on holiday and I love the Steamboat Willy style Mickey design. Plus, grey marl, literally it can do no wrong. Expect to see me living in this if the weather is less than warm – it’ll be thrown on with jeans for the perfect traipsing around a theme park look. Oh and did I mention, it’s only £22 – such a bargain!
Mickey Mouse Tees – H&MAnother bargain, this time from one of my favourites, H&M – this White/Mickey Mouse tee is incredibly good value at £8.99 and I love the classic Mickey design. Definitely wouldn’t find this in a Disney store at this sort of price, na-hah, and so cute thrown on with cropped jeans and some white low-top sneakers.Another find in HM& is this dark grey, vintage-style jersey Tee with Mickey motif (£8.99) that is just fab and as well as the worn with jeans and trainers look, it could also be brilliant tucked into the right midi skirt – particularly if that midi was pleather and pleated. A great look for a hot-dogs and milkshakes kind-of dinner evening out.
Mickey Mouse x Cath Kidston
Arrrrgh, it is NOT a good thing that I have stumbled across the Mickey Mouse x Cath Kidston collection, which was actually launched just before Christmas last year but had completely passed me by. Until now… oh my there are some cuties in there – particularly if you’re gearing up for all the photo-opportunities that a weekend at Euro Disney will present. I’m REALLY tempted by this dress, because it would be super-cute for the holiday, BUT it is £70 and quite frankly, when would I ever wear it again… most likely never.Also loving this ‘Mickey in London’ skirt from the collection (£50), which is a great length and has the all important side-seam pockets. Cute with a plain grey or white, or postbox red, tee and pumps or sandals. But I think £50 is probably still too much of an investment for me to make just for holiday cuteness sadly.VERY tempted to treat my girls to these adorable pyjamas though – lovely vintage styling and so sweet (£22):
Disney Mickey Mouse Embroidered Denim Jacket – Gap
Well this is rather cute for the die-hard Mickey Mouse fan, an embroidered denim jacket emblazoned with the face of Mickey himself from Gap. Pretty neat – although again, I think I’d probably not wear it enough generally to justify it for a weekend at Euro Disney, but it is rather appealing. £54.95 and there’s currently 25% off full price items online until midnight tonight (5th March) with the code DEALGAP so you could pick it up for around £41, which makes it pretty affordable… tempted:
Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt – ZaraOnce again Zara can be relied on for fab fast fashion and herewith, exhibit A – Zara x Disney – thumbs up for nailing classic Mickey on a white sweatshirt. What more could you want? Oh yes, you could want it at a good price – yep, nailed that too: £25.99. Such a cute outfit with this embroidered skirt too, I’d need to try it to decide whether or not it might be too mini for my legs, but good outfit inspo either way for a theme park look that doesn’t rely on ubiquitous denim.
Oscar Tiye Minnie Glittered Leather Sandals – Net-A-PorterI mean yes, if money was no object and ignoring the fact these are clearly impractical for a weekend away at a theme park where doing lots of walking is the order of the day BUT discounting all of that, I just had to share these… all £395 of them (eek!!) – Italian made, homage to Minnie, glittery high-heeled sandals. What more can I say?!
That’s all folks!
