I’m just surfacing after a long weekend in Euro Disney.
I realise that some people love the place. Indeed some adults enter so far into the “magic of Disney” that they can be witnessed unashamedly pushing kids out of the way to have their photos taken with Dumbo (yes, this happened) I am not a fan of queueing (that’ll be the Italian blood), shouting (oh, children having fun are noisy), freezing (-3) or starving (the food is truly appalling even in the big chains) I had to have some Time Out to deal with my irritation at not being able to get an even vaguely decent cup of coffee in France. Eventually I treated my caffine addiction shakes with mulled wine. Having said all that, we had fun. I don’t have any snaps of me with Goofy to prove it sadly but I did enjoy seeing my little one so excited.
My new Ugg Australia Gershwins were the stars of my Disney wardrobe. My partner raised an eyebrow and pointed out that they’re just like my Belstaff Chads. They’re not actually. Most importantly they are sheepskin lined. They come higher up the leg too – they are a mid calf rather than ankle boot. They are also bulkier and less chic. They offer the comfort of a regular Ugg but are waterproof and sturdier. I didn’t take any other footwear.
I think I actually prefer these shearling lined Ash biker boots. Somehow I managed to miss them in my furry boot search.
Day 1 I wore grey Dorothy Perkins jeggings, a Uniqlo heat tech (I wear one every day in winter), a Cos angora dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs wool scarf, Ugg Gershwins, See by Chloe bag, Ugg black sheepskin ear muffs and Celtic Sheepskin gloves.
Day 2 was an outfit regular readers have seen before. Olive Zara waxed jeans, olive Baukjen Gemma. The jumper has actually bobbled a bit which isn’t great. I had a heat tech top and long johns and a Zara roll neck underneath. And was still chilly.
Day 3 I really gave in to the cold. Zara skinnies with Falke opaques and heat tech leggings underneath, obligatory heat tech top, Uniqlo cashmere roll neck, All Saints cashmere cowl neck. I don’t have any photos of me without a coat on.
Day 4 I was fed up with bulky clothes so tried (& failed) to slim down the layers in Falke opaques under Topshop tie dye leggings with a heat tech top under a Uniqlo cashmere roll neck under a Cos roll neck dress.
My Barbour Arctic Parka did well. I bought it last winter and after another baby it is a tad snug but it really does keep the cold at bay. I was also exceedingly grateful for a Cos cashmere scarf. Sub zero temperatures are not the most fun to breastfeed in. I’m pleased with the Ugg Australia ear muffs too. They come in a nice box and would be a good Christmas gift.
