What I Wore On The Disney Cruise – Volume 3

what i wore on my disney cruise 3

Over spring break this year, we went on our fifth Disney Cruise. Yes, fifth. Yes, we love them. Obviously. πŸ™‚ We went on the Fantasy again and sailed to the Western Caribbean making stops at Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, and Castaway Cay (Disney’s private island). The Fantasy and Dream are sister ships that set sail a few years ago. They are bigger than the Magic and Wonder and are just wonderful. My favorite part – the adult restaurant, Remy. I’ve been fortunate to eat at fantastic places in my life, and Remy is the #1 restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. This was also the Star Wars Day at Sea cruise, and this Star Wars family loved every minute of it!

But, this isn’t a travel blog…it’s a fashion blog. Another reason I love cruises is getting to dress up for dinner. Do you have to? No. But, it’s me. C’mon, do you think I’d really NOT dress up for dinner?! πŸ™‚ Here’s what I wore this year.

I love Lilly Pulitzer, and this Sloane maxiΒ (some other fun patterns here) was perfect for getting on the ship. So comfortable! Even though I’m just shy of 5’8″, I did have to get it hemmed a little so I didn’t have to wear wedges with it.

I got this on super sale last year. I knew that the cruise would be the perfect place to wear it – and I was right. (Here’s a similar style this year.) And these Schutz cage wedges I got last year in NYC have continued to be a favorite. Here’s a different version.

This Ted Baker dress I picked up two years ago for $90. This was the perfect dress for formal night! And these Michael Antonio silver shoes I got off Amazon for $23! I didn’t want to spend a fortune on silver shoes I know I wouldn’t wear very much at all! Amazon has everything πŸ™‚ The girl is wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress I wore on a cruise four years ago. My baby is growing up 😦

This night, we ate in Remy. When you eat in Remy, you are expected to dress appropriately. So yay for me to get to dress up again! This Halston Heritage dress had been sitting in my closet (another huge sale item) and was waiting for me to wear it. And I’ve had these DVF shoes forever…who doesn’t love a good leopard print?!

I posted about this great dress a few weeks ago. It’s on sale!

Most days were spent in a swimsuit, but this day we went out to walk around the Falmouth, Jamaica port. I got this $19 Lilly Pulitzer Rilo tube top last year. So glad I did since they didn’t come out with this style this year. The shorts were anΒ Old Navy special! And you’ve seen these Kendra Scott pink Danielle earrings a few times this trip…they went with this top perfectly! Jack Rogers Lauren sandals are still a fav from last year.

When I saw this dress on Instagram, and it was on sale, I immediately sent the link to my hubby for Christmas. I was so happy he got it for me! This Parker dress is one of my favorites now! So simple but so beautiful. It also goes perfect with my Louboutin nude heels.

My hubby got me this Ted Baker dress last year for Mother’s Day, and I knew I wanted to wear it again on the cruise. If you are a RHOATL fan, you will recognize that Porscha wore this dress in her interviews, but I think I wore it better. LOL

I posted the Lilly Pulitzer Clara dress last year…and then I picked up this one on super sale. I just love how flowy these dresses are. Means you can eat a lot and not even notice! πŸ™‚ Here are a few great patterns left from last year here and here. (This runs so big, you want to size down.) Oh and look, again with the Kendra Scott earrings and Schutz wedges!

You can check out my other cruise wear posts here and here. Really, anything goes on a cruise, but this is my chance to dress up and have fun with fashion!

We just got back from spring break – and we went on another Disney cruise. As always, it was fantastic. Of course I loved dressing up every night too! I’m sure you are all shocked. πŸ˜‰

When I spotted this off-the-shoulder dress at Banana, I fell in love. It stays in place, which is key with an off-the-shoulder. It didn’t rise up once and I didn’t have to mess with it at all. With the hidden inside zipper, it does a great job of accentuating the waist line. Overall, it is such a fun dress! Like always, Banana had it on sale, so I got it for 50% off – score!

And here’s my not-so-little princess with the real princess, Cinderella. We had fun taking our pictures with all of the characters!

Dress – Banana Republic; Clutch – Lilly Pulitzer (similar); Shoes – Seychelles Diligent; Bracelets – Henri Bendel (old) and Stella & Dot

On the girl – Lilly Pulitzer (last season on super sale)

What To Wear on a Disney Cruise

On my old blog, I had done posts on what I wore on the Disney cruises I had been on. In 2012, we went on a 7-day to the Eastern Caribbean, and in 2013, we went on the 7-day to the Western Caribbean (both on the Disney Fantasy). My coworker is headed on her first Disney cruise next month, and as I was sitting down with her giving her cruise pointers, we talked about what to wear for dinners. It fascinates me all of the different types of fashion you see while cruising. On formal night you see everything from full length sequin dresses to jeans. It’s so fun to people watch.

So if you are planning a cruise for your upcoming spring break or even this summer, here’s what I wore on my last two cruises.

Now, I love to dress up, hence all of the dresses. If I have the chance to put on something pretty and feel fancy, for sure I’m going to do it. To each her own when it comes to cruise attire, but this is what I wore on the last two.

Putting these together really makes me feel the urge to get a spray tan… πŸ™‚

Happy cruising!!
