Dressing for Disneyland

At the start of this month, Gary and I spent a few days at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. We’ve visited Disney parks in Florida and Paris in the past, but this was our first trip to the one that started it all and we couldn’t be more excited!

As some of you will probably remember, I love to put together a Disney-inspired look for our theme park adventures, and dressing for Disneyland was no exception.

Outfit Details:

Bobble beret & Pinafore Dress | Lazy Oaf x Disney

Striped tee | Primark

Swinton Sunglasses | c/o IOLLA

Shoes | Vans

Tights | Next

Necklace | c/o Truffle Shuffle 

I fell head over heels for the Disney x Lazy Oaf collection at the end of last year and I’d been keeping this pinafore dress unworn especially for this occasion (I now have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of it in the future!).

This red, white and black ensemble is probably (and accidentally!) the most monochrome outfit I’ve worn in ages – but it was fun to try something outside of my comfort zone! It also helped make sure my accessories stood out (like this cute castle necklace!).

Twelve hours after walking through the park gates, this outfit was still going strong. As I’ve mentioned before, I think the key to picking out something to wear at Disney is making sure you’re still comfortable. We had an amazing visit and I’ll be sharing more details of the parks themselves, along with a few handy hints and tips very soon!

Have you ever found yourself dressing for Disneyland? What would it take to push you out of your fashion comfort zone? Would it be monochrome too, or something different?

My Month in Pictures: April 2017

I’m back, baby! This is my first blog post as Lynsay Loves and it feels GOOOOD, you guys. I thought I would start things off with a little visual round up of what my last month has looked like – I’m always snapping photos when I’m out and about, playing with my iPhone, Instagramming  (of course!) and trying improve my photography skills.

Some of these pictures are personal, some are just for fun and some are snippets from places I’ve been to lately. Enjoy!

Benefit Cosmetics opened their all-pink pop-up charity shop in Glasgow as part of their #raiseabrow campaign this month and so many people turned up to donate, buy and help empower women. Did you scoop any bargains?

I was featured on the Tatty Devine blog this month, hop on over and find me sharing some of my favourite pieces from my jewellery collection!

Pausing for a quick shoefie with Gary (with a floor like THAT, it’d be rude not to!)…

We stopped by the new Paesano restaurant launch on Great Western Road. The pizza was delicious but it was their dessert menu that stole my heart – simple, classic ice cream dishes with super cute branding!

I was beyond flattered that the uber-talented Folklorique recreated my Minnie Mouse look from last year’s Disney trip in one of her illustrations! I think she’s nailed it, don’t you?

Don’t let that grumpy face fool you – Bosley is a very affectionate little guy. We dropped him off at his brother’s yesterday where he’ll be staying for a few weeks. I miss him already!

Here’s looking at you, April 2017! I hope you’ve had an awesome month, and I really hope you like the blog makeover! Let me know what you think in the comments below or over on Twitter…

So Long, Miss West End Girl!

In just a few days, my shiny new website will be ready – in fact, the next time I write here, it will be under my new blog identity: Lynsay Loves. I just can’t wait to share it with you!

There will be new things: my name will be different of course, and there will be a few new pages to explore. My logo and branding will have had a makeover and, having had a sneak preview, I can honestly say that the overall LOOK of my blog is going to feel more ‘me’ than ever!

But, as I explained in this post, a lot of things will stay the same around here. My passion for writing isn’t going anywhere, and the types of things that I love to share with you will stay the same too.

While the rebrand work is underway for a couple of days you won’t be able to access my posts – but you can still find me over on Twitter and Instagram at @lynsayloves in the meantime! Sit tight kittens because I will be back here and raring to go before you know it!

It’s been a fun and exciting ride entering the blogging world as Miss West End Girl and seeing where the last seven years have taken me. From creative collaborations, to speaking gigs, being featured in a book (with pages and everything!), being on TV, writing for other websites and much more – I’m beyond grateful for it all.

And yet, this doesn’t feel like the end of something, it feels like I’m still at the beginning.

Thank you for sticking with me so far, and I’ll see you on the other side…

Love,
