Pinned #4: Anthro Knock Off Grass Court Dress

My Grass Cour Dress

My Pinterest Stats for Week 4: 
24 boards
993 pins
This weeks pin is actually from my "Spring has Sprung" board, a dress from my favorite shop, Antropologie.
"Tink" inspiration.

Last weeks "Pin" was my Tinkerbell Sweatband for my Tinkerbell Half Marathon. So I planned on going to Disneyland after the race and wanted to dress "Tink" inspired and this dress was a great way to do that. With the help of this pin from my "All Things Amanda" board. 

Okay, so I know this was going a little "Cinderella" by making my own dress.

No mice to help me, but I must have had some good "Cinderella" vibes because the zipper went in like a dream. I hate zippers.

*Insert: A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes 

Anyways, the fabric is green linen with embroidered flowers. It was difficult to find a really good green material that I liked. 
My photo that I told you about from the Race.
So after the race, even though I had a hard time moving around. Lance and I went to Disneyland. *Note: I wanted to take photos of my dress near the castle. 

He hadn't been to the park in years, he only remembers riding It's A Small World, Splash Mountain and a submarine ride which I assume is now the Finding Nemo ride. 

So I had to take him on my favorites which were Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain

So we go to ride Splash Mountain. This isn't a ride that I would normally go on...but he wants to go. I was lucky to be seated at the very front with four adults behind me...

This is evidence that I love him, right?

So much for getting some photos of my dress in front of the castle when I am dripping wet!
Let's just say this is why I don't ride Splash Mountain.

Afterwards, it took some time to dry out. However it left my dress in a wrinkled mess. Ah HELL!

But I can't complain because my dear husband took some great photos for me in front of the castle. He is so much better than *Ryan Gosling.
