Spring Dapper Day 2015 | Disneyland

We meet again, dearest Disneyland! As we explained in the Fall, Dapper Day is a bi-annual event at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, encouraging you to embrace your ability to dress up and step out in style!

Sam was unable to attend this year due to a new and exciting job change so Courtney and I attended same as last year, with Ally and Jackie as our Spring dapper dates!

Highlight: DisneyBound

What is DisneyBounding? I think the best definition comes from the creator of the style sensation herself, Leslie Kay:

“DisneyBounding is a way for teenagers and adults to show their love and appreciation for Disney and play dress up without actually wearing a costume so it takes trendy clothes and bases the outfits after Disney characters.” – Disney Geekery, Interview: Disneybound Explained By Leslie Kay

Essentially, where Disney and fashion collide. I recently took a trip down to Southern California to attend Spring Dapper Day 2015 and with a day in California Adventure before Dapper Day, the gang agreed that we should Disneybound as the Fab Five (four in our case): Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as Donald and Daisy Duck. With best friends partnered as the iconic duos, we rocked the park in our makeshift outfits!

The Fab Four!

What’s great about DisneyBounding is you take what you already have in your closet and translate it into a Disney character of your choice. Sometimes a little shopping excursion is helpful but otherwise take a look in your closet and see what you can come up with!

If you’re feeling inspired, you can check out some more outfits put together on DisneyBound’s tumblr!
