A Budget-Friendly Spring Dress

#targetdoesitagain. Someone tell Flora & Merryweather to stop bickering already because I found a dress that makes them both happy! I was going to forgo a new Easter dress this past weekend due to the recent closet-cleaning-out and the fact that Miss Stella needs her teeth cleaned (can someone figure out a less expensive way to clean a dog’s teeth, please), but then I stumbled across this $29 number at Target, on sale for $25.

Target’s Xhilaration line can be hit-or-miss quality-wise, but the fabric on this dress is so thick and the shape is well-cut too! It can be worn off the shoulder or pull it up onto the shoulder for a little more coverage. I already owned the Loungefly White Rabbit purse, a little nod to my Alice in Wonderland obsession. The “millenial pink” Minnie ears are almost a perfect match to the dress and are currently on sale at ShopDisney.com – half price! I’ve linked them at the end of this post.

Easter was the first time I had ever spent a major holiday at a Disney park, and I was surprised to see it wasn’t elbow to elbow crowds at the Magic Kingdom that day! The line for photos with Mr and Mrs Bunny (dressed in pastels, of course!) was a surprisingly reasonable wait too.

You can see behind me in the photos below how light the crowd was in the morning for the official park opening ceremony and show!

There were of course Easter-themed treats offered throughout the park, including pastel Easter egg krispy treats, egg shaped cake pops (with Mickey ears!) and carmel apples decorated as bunnies and baby chicks.

Another great Target find for the books. I’d love to know what other budget clothing resources you guys shop at! Let me know in the comments!
