Cruise Wear Ideas

There is nothing I hate more than packing. Except maybe unpacking. Of course, being the mom means I have to pack and unpack for everyone including the dog (but luckily not including the husband). One good thing about traveling to a warm place when it’s cold here is that I can start when I feel like starting because I’m not wearing my warmer weather clothing right now! I love these cruise outfit and packing ideas that I found on pinterest – sources are noted under each picture.

Another good thing about traveling in the winter to a warmer place is that summer clothing has been on clearance for a bit! Here are some of the things I am planning to bring.

The grey Mickey shirt, sunglasses, and sandals were all on big sales. The tote bag was on sale at Land’s End and even though it’s actually navy and not black, I thought it would be perfect! The white and coral shirts were also on sale at Target. The white Mickey Mouse shirt was on sale at Old Navy, and I actually bought it long before I knew about the cruise!

For Pirate Night, I thought I’d dress as Mr. Smee, using this shirt:

I used bronzing face lotion my entire cruise so that I didn't have to wear anything but concealer when out and about. If I was going to be in the water, but wanted to take photos before I used clear gel mascara (Covergirl I think) so I didn't look crazy. Other than that, I just took really basic since we had a formal night one evening and I knew I wanted eyeshadow/real mascara for that. I swear by Loreal bronzing lotions for the face and body. They are super reasonable at walmart and provide color in minutes. I also like that they don't turn my paleness into oompa loompa style.

LOVE all of it!!!!

I can't wait to hear about your cruise! We've been thinking about doing a Disney one with the kids.

That is a perfect Mr. Smee shirt! I love everything you bought. Does the Disney cruise have formal nights. Tommy and I took a cruise I think it was on Norwegian cruise line and they didn't have formal nights which we loved since we like casual clothes.

I think there is one that is supposed to be fancier than the others but I'm not sure! I know most nights are called cruise casual and just bathing suits aren't allowed.

Can I come? I cannot wait to hear all about it because it sounds like so much fun!

Dara said...

Dara said...

I wish you could come, that would be great!
