but she won’t discover that it’s him…


…’til chapter three!

Beauty and the Beast has always been my FAVORITE Disney movie! I have watched it so many times that most of it is memorized, and I have even seen the Broadway play multiple times. Plus, the recent(ish) live action movie was surprisingly good!


I’m not sure why I always connected with her. Maybe because she was intelligent and spoke her mind? Maybe because she wasn’t born into royalty and thus more┬árelatable? Or it could simply be that she was the only Disney princess I knew with brown hair like me ­čÖé


This dress was a costume I sewed AGES ago – one of my firsts. I made it out of a bedsheet from Walmart and used iron-on hem tape since I didn’t know how to sew a proper hem. It doesn’t really fit great and the zipper is kind of a mess, but I was always proud of it and have worn it many times. Since I teach elementary school, it’s a good go-to costume for Halloween at work.

When a friend of mine was having a Disney costume party for her birthday in September, this again became the obvious choice. I no longer have the same locks as my favorite heroine, but I think I still can pull off the look ­čśë


I paired my dress/apron with simple flats as well as a Beauty and the Beast book purse and a rose pin from Disney.

Hope this inspires you for Halloween! (ps, this is not my costume for this year. I’ll share photos of my actual outfit soon!)

Nope, it’s not my cosplay post yet! ┬áMonday, my friends ­čÖé

I took these photos a few weeks ago, but wasn’t going to post them. ┬áDave and I went out to brunch in Boston and┬áhad some free time before meeting up with friends. ┬áSadly, it was SUPER cloudy (and not the “good cloudy,” ya know?), plus┬áI wasn’t feeling very photogenic – therefore the pictures didn’t come out great.
