My annual birthday trip blog posts are here! In March. Lol.
For those of you who have been following along since last year, yes my birthday is in January. And yes. I am blogging late again. But see, the first two months of the year have been insane. There was Disney, there was my best friend coming home, and there was my students performing in their very first musical. It doesn’t sound like a lot. But it was. My eyebags will tell you so.
Anyway, like my Disney trip with mom, there isn’t much information I can give you that hasn’t already been covered here, so this will be more of a style blog than anything else. But if you have any questions about Tokyo, shoot me a message and I’ll gladly answer them as best as I can.
Planning the outfits and Disneybounds for this trip was quite a challenge. I’d never gone to Disney in the height of winter before, so I couldn’t exactly follow my skirt-and-off-shoulder formula this time.
For our first day in DisneySea, I knew we were heading to the park in the afternoon straight from our flight. So that meant that we had to be extra warm. We were coming in from Manila weather, and I could not afford to get sick, so I thought, what better Disneybound than characters who actually have fur?
Dogs. Our dog counterparts.
The girls and I have this thing where we always assign characters to each other in whatever we watch. If a character is extra Princessy, it’s me. If it’s extra mommy, it’s Anna. And if it’s extra hilarious, it’s Ayn. So when Disney did an Instagram post on Disney dogs, we found our perfect counterparts.
For me, it was Lady. With her long brown fur, her ridiculous eyelashes, and her slow motion head turning skills, she was a perfect fit for me. Lol. And what better place to photograph her than the Mediterranean Harbor in Disney Sea? The theming of this Little Italian Paradise is incredible.
So of course I had to put on my shearling vest and my camel coat for this look, as well as a turquoise scarf to represent her collar.

And I’m pretty proud of myself for these DIY ears. That little plate of spaghetti was so fun to make!
And speaking of spaghetti, I wouldn’t be Lady if I didn’t have a plate for my lovely Bella Notte.
For the mommy of our group, we chose Nana from Peter Pan. Nana takes care of all the Darling children just as Anna takes care of us.
Just look at her in her doily ears and cozy layers.
Also this clock we found in the American Waterfront was just perfect.

And for the tiniest member of our trio, we chose Copper from The Fox and The Hound.
These Western touches from Cape Cod served as the perfect backdrop.

Our first night in DisneySea was absolutely incredible. One of my favorite moments from this entire trip was standing in the middle of the Mediterranean Harbor after taking lots of pictures around the park and eating all the snacks we could. We just hung out there, talking, dancing, jumping, laughing, and hugging each other in the cold. It was such an incredible feeling that in the middle of laughing, I actually started crying. I was so overwhelmed with joy and love. Such happy tears, and such beautiful moments. And the trip had only begun.
