Gingham, #ButMakeItDisney

It’s been a couple of weeks since I shared my first #ButMakeItDisney blog, and this new normal of ours has not gotten any easier. If anything, it’s only made me more restless.

So I am trying to keep my spirits high by distracting myself with bouts of productivity and creativity, which only means one thing for this Disney girl – more Disney DIYs.


If you missed my first entry, #ButMakeItDisney is a new blog series where I take a basic fashion element, and make it Disney by adding a DIY.

Since Spring is still in full swing, I decided to work on another staple for the season – Gingham. And for my Disney DIY – Mickey hair scrunchies.



For my blue outfit, I wore this tie-shoulder dress that reminds me so much of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. But we are talking Disney here, so this could be used for an Alice bound too if you like.

Since the dress is so playful and dainty, I put my hair up in a cheerleader ponytail, high enough for the mini Minnie (see what I did there? lol) mouse ears to peek through. Such a perfect look for the warmer months.



My favorite color in my favorite style – off the shoulder. I wanted to pair this light and feminine ruffled dress with a hairstyle to complement it, so I styled my hair in a loose braid. I even found pink gingham fabric for my Mickey scrunchy to match the dress. Will definitely wear this look on a picnic when this is all over.



Since I made this 2-piece set, I was able to incorporate all the things that I love. A bow in the back, that cropped off the shoulder style, a wide twirly circle skirt, and best of all – POCKETS!

This outfit also reminds me so much of Belle, that I couldn’t resist doing her signature half bun hairstyle with my yellow scrunchy. This makes for the perfect Spring Princess Disneybound.

AK+-+Rose+Gold+LineI know none of us can really celebrate this season under our beautiful blue sky right now, but I hope these posts can bring you a little bit of Spring air and sunshine wherever you are. Stay home, stay safe, and stay strong everyone.

*I haven’t quite gotten used to documenting my projects step by step yet since all of them are first attempts, but I will try my best to start doing that for you guys soon in case you’d like to give any of them a try. If you’re interested in anything I’ve done and don’t see the information you need, please don’t hesitate to comment below or send me a message on Instagram.

*Like I mentioned before, I can’t guarantee a post schedule for these blogs with everything going on. I do post on Instagram fairly often though, so you can find all my Disney content there.
