When: Thursday March 4, 2010

Red trench: Present from my brother living in Spain
Checkered scarf: Panama
Patterned tights: Marshall's
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Black booties: Payless Shoe Source
Black hat: Target

Where: Cleaned up my apartment and saw New Moon online! ejeje yeah I admit it, I like the Twilight series :)

For today's Disney Challenge, I chose one of my all time childhood favorites: Mary Poppins! When I was small, I used to watch this movie over, and over, and over again. I loved it! Today I was particularly inspired by the outfit she wore up on the roof singing chim chim cheree!
March 4 - Mary Poppins
The way I did it was adding the red trench to resemble her red long suit dress and then I added patterned black tights instead of all black tights just to give it a more modern edge. I of course couldn't forget about the most important details of Mary Poppins: her black hat with flowers and her umbrella!

In order to copy the flower hat look, I just pinned a white floral hair accessory to my cute black hat. I really like how it turned out, I will definitely have to try adding pins to my hats more often!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn these patterned tights:

  2. Oooh! It's clever of you to think of dressing as Mary Poppins! And you did a great job of it, too. You look very sophisticated without overdoing it. I really like your tights. :)

  3. How ingeniuous. You did a great job. Yes, this was one of your favorite movies and you did watch it dozens and dozens of times. dad

  4. This outfit is adorable. I have that same hat in purple. I haven't worn it lately but now I really want to.

  5. This has been my favorite so far this week! You did a great job with it.

  6. Marie, I just checked into your blog to see what was up, then I instantly fell in love with your series!! If you couldn't tell by the exclamation points, I'm a huge Disney fan at heart, and I love the idea behind your outfits and the Mary Poppin one is especially chic! I really do like how you gave it a modern edge with the tights, too.

    I think I may include some of your pictures in a future Disney-inspired post-- please tell me if that's ok or not!

  7. ooooooooo now this is my fav so far. I guess like mother like daughter. My all time fav movie is Mary Poppins and that is what I always put when someone asks me. Cant say how many times I have watched it and it made it even more special to watch it together all those many times. I love this red coat and black hat. Very sophisticated looking. Im sure this will get my vote at the end of the week but I will look forward to the other ones in the next few days. Mom

  8. very fun! I love this idea and how you've used it for inspiration.

  9. Beautiful! I think this is my favorite so far, mostly because of that fantastic hat!
