For the second day of my Disney Challenge week, I decided to make an outfit inspired by The Little Mermaid! Yes, I know that I don't look like a mermaid (She does have a fin and bright red hair), but I did incorporate lots of her details into today's outfit! For starters, I made a green, teal, and purple color combo to resemble the color of her fin, top, and the water around her.

I also wore the perfect tights for this challenge: fishents!! Get it? fish-nets!! jajaja, sorry for the lame joke, I couldn't help myself!

Back to the outfit, this little jacket actually has big flowy sleeves (sorry the pic doesn't show it very well) and it sorda reminds me of waves and a flowy ocean. So it was perfect for this aquatic inspired outfit! Here is a better pic of the sleeves:

The last detail I added were a couple of flower pins in my hair because Ariel often wears colorful flowers in her hair as well!

So there you have it, my version of Ariel from The Little Mermaid! jeje my favorite part of this outfit was the color combo, I'll have to try that again sometime!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this green dress:

  1. the Little Mermaid is probably one of my favorite Disney movies, next to Beauty and the Beast.

    As soon as I saw your look I started singing "Under the Sea" and now can't get it out of my head.
