Magic of Mary Blair

My skirt is based on this print!!

Hey friends!! I recently wore the same outfit for two events because I loved it so much. The skirt has some really cool Disney/art history behind it so I thought I would share a bit about the magic that is Mary Blair!

Mary Blair was an animator, artist, and designer.  She did a lot of art and animaton for The Walt Disney Company including concept art for Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Cinderella. She also did all the concept art for Disneyland's It's A Small World. 

These are some of my favorite art pieces she's done!

I went to Universal Studios for the first time and I've been wanting to go for years and I even had a Hufflepuff outfit planned that hasn't been purchased yet but this trip was so last minute, I needed to come up with a cute Harry Potter themed outfit FAST. I bought this skirt for me and Daniel's anniversary because we were planning to go to a Mary Blair exhibit (which ended up being closed) so I decided to wear it! I had such an amazing time and I can't wait to go back.

It was me and Daniel's two year anniversary so we got fancy tea, since we did that on our very first date, and walked around Downtown Orange. We were planning to go to the Mary Blair exhibit but of course, it was closed. 

I hope you enjoyed this kind of post! I'm trying to re-wear outfits instead of buying new ones all the time but it's so hard.
