minnie mouse inspired fashion outfit flat lay from the high street

After doing the Disney tag yesterday, I wanted to continue the theme with an Minnie Mouse inspired look. I have tried not to overdo it with the red and white polka dots but in case you don't want to be referred to as a mouse, I have mentioned some alternatives. Be warned, this is very Minnie!

The blouse from Topshop is a boxy style with a red and white polka dot print, and a complimenting white peter pan collar. There is ruffles added to the front yoke and sleeves to create more detail. I didn't want to overdo it with the print, so I have styled it with a light blue washed denim pinafore dress from River Island. It's a straight fit with a circle skirt to create volume and flare. I think pinafores always create a cutesy look, probably because they are associated with young girls. If you aren't a fan of denim, you could wear a black pinafore, or just a plain skirt. The shoes from River Island are a white glitter flat with cut out detailing all around. I have customised a white shoulder bag with an oversized bow, just to keep with the theme. For an alternate look, maybe for something in the evening, you can pair the blouse with a black pencil skirt or high waisted trousers, oversized clutch bag and a pair of red heels.

For the nail paint, I have chosen the standard colours; Retro Red, Matte White and Red Glitter all from Barry M. I have also included a Barry M nail art pen in black. This is an easy way to draw dots, bows or other designs easily onto your nails. A simpler way to draw dots is to use a dotting tool. I find it easier using the nail paint brush to blob your chosen colour onto a piece of paper then dipping in the dotting tool and then onto your nails. This may take some practice to get the dots accurate. They're available as a single or in a pack with other nail art tools. You can also try using a toothpick or a bobby pin. You can buy nail art stickers too if you haven't got a steady hand to draw them on yourself. There are so many Disney inspired nail art online and it's so much fun to experiment and see what you can come up with.

I have unintentionally brought a collection of silver jewellery, with my favourite being the necklace. It's a 3D Minnie head with little crystals embedded in the head and bow. A simple design which creates a big impact and detail to a simple blouse. I got this ring to match the red crystals in the necklace. I'm not a huge fan of ear-rings but I love that Minnie was dangling from a bow, It's a delicate piece so it doesn't take over the ear. The bracelet is customised with charms I picked while at Disney. It's got charms that represent me like my birthstone and initial as well as things I like, like the handbag and the traditional Disney symbols; Mickey's hat and his face shape. I love that it holds meaning and memories. I like the watch because of it's simple face and complex strap being made up of Mickey heads alternating with crystals and solid; a great combination.

I have enjoyed the Disney theme this week, so if you have some ideas of other Disney related posts, let me know in the comments below.
