|Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.|
Supercalifragilisticexbealidocious! Mary Poppins has always been one of my favorite Disney movies, mostly because I adore Julie Andrews (Side note: anyone watch NBC's the Sound of Music live feat. Carrie Underwood? If so, what did you think? Leave your comments below!) and because I loved the music in it. I originally put this costume together for Halloween, but seeing as it's already December & I still never posted about my Halloween ootd, I figured I'd post it up as I share about Disney's upcoming movie, Saving Mr. Banks. I can't wait to see it! Scroll down to the end to read the synopsis.
In the meantime, I wanted to show you how to put together a modernized, version of our favorite nanny, Ms. Poppins! My inspiration came from one of my favorite bloggers, Keiko Lynn & her adorable couples costume. I am also digging this chic Poppins look from Miss LC. I adore how she paired it with a Chanel & truly made the look her own. One of the best things about this outfit is that you can wear most of it on a regular basis, except for probably the hat & purse. I also enjoyed playing "scavenger hunt" to piece this all together!
