Disney World Fashionista in January

Hi there, long time, no see! Well let's get right back into it with Zealous Blonde's How to Be Fashionable at Disney World in January!

The weather really fluctuated during our 5 day stay, from freezing to mildly warm. The key was planning ahead and dressing in layers.

above: Animal Kingdom: Our first day: temps in the 60s with occasional downpours.

• J Crew Tippi sweater
• 7 for all Mankind Josefina skinny boyfriend jeans
• Repetto flats
• Gucci cotton scarf
• Rebecca Minkoff fringe suede crossbody purse

Since we knew we were getting a lot of rain that day, we stuffed my rainboots in the bottom of the stroller. Boy I really needed them!

above: Magic Kingdom: Our second day: temps in the 40s with a harsh cool wind. In addition to freezing, I was getting very sick this day and feeling awful.

• hat: purchased spontaneously at Magic Kingdom
• LOFT dress
• Hue leggings (on top of silk long underwear)
• Converse
• Burberry short trench coat

I was unprepared for how cold this day was. Being sick really made it worse.

above: Hollywood Studios: Our fourth day: temps near 70 with lots of sun!

• Rodarte t-shirt
• J. Jill white sweater
• Calvin Klein Jeans denim jacket
• J Brand flares
• platform Converse
• Gucci cotton scarf
• Ray-Ban aviators

Finally the kind of day you hope for!  Still chilly in the morning but I was shedding layers in the afternoon sun.

Keys to being Disney World Fashionista in January:

• jeans and dresses with leggings or tights - even if it hits 80 degrees, you will be comfortable in jeans and ready for the cooler temps in the morning and evening.

• a small crossbody bag. In January, you don't need all the baggage you might want in July: giant sunglasses, sunscreen, etc. Find someone in your party already bringing a backpack or stroller and ask them to carry an item or two for you.
