If you read my first blog post of 2019, you know that one of my blogging goals for the year was to branch out a bit. Well, guess what? I’m kicking that off with a new series: a theme park lookbook! I’ve wanted to incorporate fashion into my blog for a long time, so I’m really excited to share this first look with you. Let’s jump right in!
Universal Mardi Gras Outfit
February may have come and gone, but Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida has only just begun. I haven’t been to this event in years, so I knew that I wanted to create a fun look for my first time back. The traditional event colors are gold, green, and purple, so I decided to go all in with the purple. Here’s a look at my Universal Mardi Gras outfit:
The Florida summer seems to have arrived early yet again (thanks, climate change), so comfy-cute is my usual look of choice for a theme park day. My Universal Mardi Gras outfit definitely checks that box—especially the comfy part. This purple t-shirt from American Eagle is super soft and lightweight, and it pairs great with my white high-waisted shorts (also from AE!)
Confession: I never used to understand the obsession some people have with sneakers… that is, until I purchased a pair of Adidas Superstars. I’m so dedicated to these shoes that I literally clean them after every wear. They pay me back in style and comfort though, so I can live with it. Seriously, a good pair of cute sneakers is essential for a day at a theme park. They’re definitely my favorite part of my Universal Mardi Gras outfit—along with any other outfit I pair them with!
Another essential for every outfit: accessories! My Foster Grant heart sunglasses are probably my favorite pair I’ve ever owned. Everything just looks so much better when it’s tinted pinkish purple! They’re just unique enough to add some fun to any outfit without being too outlandish. The affordable price is a plus too!
Speaking of accessories, I’m hooked on the AE X MTV tote bag I paired with this outfit. Backpacks are usually my go-to bag for a theme park day, but this tote fits my camera, wallet, keys and all of my other essentials without an issue! I love how its vintage vibes and colors compliment my Adidas Superstars.
There you have it: the perfect comfy-cute Universal Mardi Gras outfit! Just be sure to throw on a dozen beaded necklaces to maximize the festiveness. And for the ultimate Mardi Gras look, be sure accessorize with plenty of beignets and King Cakes! (Thank you for the amazing photos and amazing day, Marley!)
