Inspiration: Vintage Disneyland

I adore vintage photographs. I have a huge collection of them on my computer. It's not the Hollywood starlets that I like to look at but the ordinary people going about their daily lives. It shows me how real people dressed and styled themselves, not just those with stylists and millions of pounds to hand.

This week I have been inspired by vintage photos of Disneyland (and Disney World but I suppose the two are pretty much interchangable). I visited Walt Disney World for the first time in July and it was the happiest I have ever been in my whole 23 years. Seriously. I actually teared up once because I wanted to go back there so badly. True story. And I don't even like Disney!

The colours are magical. Everything is pastel and pretty. It really feels like you have been transported to another world. Combine this with the pastel shades favoured for fashion in 1950s and 1960s America plus the hyper-real colours that vintage cameras gave and you have the perfect colour palette for a nostalgic, spring look.

These photos are all from and I think it's fairly obvious which are which!

My challenge this week is to come up with an outfit which draws on these photos for inspiration. I think I have an idea already!
