Dressing up Kendra!
TGIF! Boy am I glad it’s Friday. I’m sure a lot of you are, Right!?
Tonight’s post, as the name suggests, is about Dressing up Kendra!
Kendra is a well-known travel expert. She has been featured on news channels and television shows such As Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus. She has approached me with the very daring yet pleasurable challenge, dressing her up for her Family Disney Epcot Theme Park visit.
Here’s a note from Kendra stating her challenge:
“This spring I am going to Orlando with my family. We’re going to have a lot of fun spending time together and making memories. We plan to visit Disney’s Epcot theme park during our visit. I’m sure we’ll take many snapshots to commemorate the event. I want to make sure I don’t embarrass my kids by wearing something unfashionable. I have reached out to some of my favorite bloggers to help me choose an outfit for my Adventures at Epcot. I contacted Rhaya, a reputable fashion blogger for some help insight. Her fashion blog is always updated with the best looks, tips and tricks. I’m sure she will do a fabulous job helping me find the right outfit. While vacationing in any city, you’ll notice that an area has its own specific style. Orlando’s style is laidback and comfortable. The hospitable people of Orlando graciously welcome millions of world travelers every year. The attractions here are more family friendly than those in any other city I’ve visited. I was able to book my trip though this wonderful travel website Gogobot. Gogobot gave me reviews on the best Disney world hotels. I know we will enjoy a wide variety of activities, from dining at unique restaurants to experiencing spectacular shows. I might even slip away with my husband to enjoy drinks at the hotel lounge in the evening. Whatever I do during my stay here, I’ll feel my best when I look my best. I can’t wait to what fashions Rhaya chooses for me to wear at Epcot.”
Good Choice Kendra – Won’t let you down.
As soon as I read the words “Laidback” and “Comfortable” I immediately thought of Stripes and Keds ha-ha ! Having recently made a trip to the states myself and actually visited Disneyland, it’s a little same, same but different. So Let’s Get started on her day time outfit.
Let’s start from the bottom up. First we’ll tackle Footwear! When visiting any theme park you will need to wear some really good walking shoes. As I mentioned earlier, Keds footwear not only looks great but feels great on your feet, especially if you are going to be out and about in them all day. They are available in all sorts of colors and styles, so you can go crazy! For bottoms, I have chosen a very comfortable yet fashion forward denim jean. I say fashion forward because it isn’t your regular daggy jean, but it is a nice skinny, cropped fit that will keep you looking fashionable yet functional at the same time. Now, I did see that Kendra was planning her trip during spring, so therefore I’ve added this loose-fit, wide striped, H&M, short sleeve tee. It won’t stick to you and make you feel uncomfortable whilst at the theme park. This is very important particularly if you are trying to juggle the children and all the theme park activities. You will also notice there is a little black anorak on the right. I’ve added this because Anorak’s are great, light weight, casual, cover-ups just in case the weather changes up.
This outfit is honestly one of the most stylishly effortless daytime ensembles that you will come across this spring. You can never go wrong with Stripes and denim.
I have two looks for Kendra; we have had a look at her day time look, now let’s take a glance at her night time look.
Kendra has great height and a gorgeous fit body. I would love to have her in a stunning embellished maxi. HOWEVER, seeming as we are at a theme Park on a family vacation, it is important not to look too OTT, but to look stylish. The season “spring” is often complemented by Beautiful Bright colors, so let’s add a splash of color with some blue or pink tones that will look amazing with Kendra’s Skin-tone and hair color.
Check out the board below.
I’ve chosen a beautiful, fitted body-con style dress. We want to avoid printed dresses, so by choosing something solid colored we can embellish the look with OTT jewellery instead. When I say “OTT jewellery” I don’t mean deck your arm to your elbow, I mean a few, statement, dazzling pieces that work well together to make your outfit shine.
I did want to avoid heels, but I thought “Oh my – Look at that Gorgeous Valentino” haha! The lengths of the heels aren’t too high so I guess that is a good sign.
I also wanted to steer clear from Black so that Kendra can have a bit of fun on her night-out.
I hope you like this bright, colorful spring inspired outfit Kendra.
Much Love, xoxo
