Downtown Disney dinner date

Yup, you read that right.  Downtown Disney.  There's a whole shopping center type thing outside of disneyland that has restaurants, bars, clubs, and shops.  This was our first time venturing there, but we'll probably go back.  We had a great dinner at a nice restaurant, seated at the window and watching disney-goers heading home and downtown-disney-ers heading in.  It was fabulous people watching.  After dinner we got me an ice-cream cone, and stopped into a couple of stores.  It was a really nice evening.

My sister in law does a great job wearing white house black market bustiers, completely strapless, when she goes out at night.  She goes out a lot more than I do, given that she and her husband have tons of friends in the area and her kids are a few years older than ours.  I decided to give it a try, but with my own spin.  Fully strapless looked odd on me - and the bustier was sortof falling off - I bought it post-baby and I've lost at least 15 lbs and a couple bra sizes since then - but it worked great with the straps.  I adjusted the straps so they made an x in the back which pulled it up even higher - great for my short torso.  I also had fun with the accessories.

I ended up wearing almost this exact same outfit, but with my black cross-body bag and silver ballet flats, to my sister-in-law's place the following weekend with the whole family.  It worked perfectly for that too!  What a difference accessories make.  (And I have another post along those lines, with pictures, coming up. :))

  1. This looks great! Sorry, were you in Florida?

  2. Nope - home. We went to the Downtown Disney outside of Disney *land*. Disney *world* is in Florida. I think it has a "Downtown Disney" too - so I can understand the confusion.

  3. Yes, Disney World has a Downtown Disney, but I didn't know that Disney Land had one too!
