Before: Darya wearing my shawl as a skirt

On our first day at Disneyland, Darya insisted that the needed to be dressed in blue from head to toe "like the ocean, Mommy." The only problem? She had blue tights, but no blue skirt. Sensing that this was meltdown material, I quickly wrapped my blue shawl around her and we headed into the park.

How long do you think we were there before I bought her the sparkly princess skirt pictured here?

        Stellar use of a pashmina, by the way! Those things are good for EVERYTHING.

        Love the sparkly skirt! Did you even make it into the park before you bought it- or was it Downtown Disney?

        What a lovely photo, the top one :)

        @Sonia That pashmina goes with me on every trip. It's a blanket on the plane, a nursing coverup, a head cover in a mosque, a shield from rain, and now a skirt ;)

        Everyone should travel with one!

        @Kristy we took the monorail in from the Disneyland Hotel, so we didn't go through Downtown Disney - we bought it in a little shop near the Disneyland castle.

        i want both a gorgeous pashmina AND a fairy skirt!

        Am sure she had you buy the skirt about 10 minutes from entering the place! Hahaah... Oh she looks so happy! Totally worth the trip!

        I bet it didn't take her long to persuade you of the skirt's essentialness! Gorgeous photos, your daughter looks so happy.
