Last weekend bow ties, petticoats, hats, and pearls were commonplace at Disneyland, as it was Dapper Day, the twice annual event where you’re encouraged to get gussied up and visit Walt Disney’s original Magic Kingdom. Things have been a bit hectic lately, as we’ve had some construction at our home (that brown accordion wall is finally gone!), and I hadn’t taken the time to plan an outfit, but then I remembered a recent purchase from Hippie Shake, and paired it with staple accessories, including two brooches from Match Accessories.
We had a pretty lackadaisy morning of roaming, riding the Mark Twain, and eating breakfast, before heading to the Dapper Day Expo (where all I bought were yet more brooches from Match!) and a lovely evening with friends, both new and old. One of the things I really love about Dapper Day is meeting new people, including you fine readers! Which happened this year, and seriously, it always brightens my day when I bump into y’all, so please, never hesitate to stop me to say “Hi!”
In the meantime Patrick and I have been hard at work doing a slew of home improvement projects (with yet more slated after New Year’s Eve) and prepping for his mother’s arrival next week, including decorating for Christmas! So, if I’m honest, I’m not sure how much blogging will be going on between now and then!
