Provincial Belle Running Costume


Provincial Belle runDisney Race CostumeProvincial Belle is a fun easy to put together running costume. Running in runDisney races has become a true passion, okay maybe an addiction, of mine. I was hooked after my first 5k and quickly upgraded to a 10k just the following fall! For my second race, I had to wear one of the fun costumes I saw on the race course at the 5k. I came up with the idea of doing Provincial Belle because I was running at the runDisney Wine & Dine 10k and that weekend has the Lumiere challenge, which made me think of Belle. The costume was super fun to put together and I even decided to make my own skirt and apron. You can easily buy these items if you don’t want to sew them like I did!

Provincial Belle Costume Basics

One of the reasons I picked Provincial Belle race costume was because it didn’t involve tons of pieces and I didn’t need to carry anything. I’m just not one of those people that can run holding things. Here is the basic list of what you’ll need for this costume. A link to the tutorial I used to make my skirt is below.

  • Blue Running Top – I already owned champion brand workout tank top from Target
  • Large Blue Ribbon – I used a wire ribbon I purchased from JoAnne’s
  • Blue Running Skirt – I made this, link to tutorial below
  • Apron – I also made this, tutorial below
  • Running Shorts – I wore black running shorts, also already owned and from Target

That’s it! You can find lots of blue running skirts and skorts online if you don’t want to make your own.

Belle’s Hair

For my hair, I parted my hair in the middle, then twisted a small section of hair back on either side of my head and secured with bobby pins. Then I put all my hair into a low ponytail and added the large bow. I used about a can of hairspray and tons of bobby pins to keep it in place.


Running Skirt

I will start with the fact that I am a basic sewer. I can make pillows, drapes, sew hems, basically, I can sew straight or straightish lines. If I can make this skirt and apron, so can you! Once I decided it would be much cheaper to make a skirt than buying one, I went online. I read about a million tutorials about making a running skirt and decided this one was the best by Moms RUN this Town.

The main difference between her skirt and mine is that mine is not a sparkle skirt. I used a sparkly spandex fabric instead. (It was pretty 80s and since the race, I’ve used the skirt for an 80s party!) Anyways, my fabric was slightly different and stretchy therefore after taking my measurements and cutting the skirt my skirt turned out HUGE! I had to resew it and I added a fun little ruffle in the back. It still turned out great, so if you mess up the first time and have to redo it, no worries! You can’t recut once you’ve cut, but you can undo the seams and improvise!

DIY Apron

The Apron was extremely simple to make. I took a piece of white cotton fabric that fit wrapped my body (with room to spare to tie it in a bow) and cut it into the shape of an apron. Basically, it’s a T with thin arms and a really really thick bottom. I hemmed the seams, but you could easily get away without doing this.

Provincial Belle runDisney Running SkirtRunning in runDisney races is so much and having a costume just adds to that fun! I love seeing what everyone else comes up with and even when you see someone dressed as the same character as you, it’s really fun to see what they did! I’m not running the Wine & Dine this year due to the fact I’m due with a baby the day after the race, BUT you better believe I will be running Disney again soon and I can’t wait to design my next outfit!

Peter Pan Nursery


From just about the moment we found out we were pregnant we wanted to do something special with our baby’s nursery. With my love of Disney, something using a Disney classic was likely in the cards, but we did want it to be something a little different. During my pregnancy, we went to see Finding Neverland and I came up with the idea that a Peter Pan Neverland nursery would be the cutest idea for a boy. We didn’t know what we were having at that point, but the minute we found I immediately knew we had to go through with that idea. We had so much fun putting together this room and I (more…)

ThredUP Clothing Resale Review


I’ve looked high and low for a good place to resell and donate clothes. I love donating clothing to a good cause, but I also love the idea of making some money on clothes that are in great condition and giving them a new life in someone else’s closet!

Disney’s World of Pandora


I got the chance on Sunday of opening weekend to visit the new world of Pandora inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. There has been a lot of news about Pandora and how amazing it is. There has also been news that it is crazy crowded and will have huge wait times. I went and I survived without really having to wait at all. In this post, I’ll give you my advice, tips, and reviews to visiting the amazing world of Pandora.

Oh baby!!! Pregnancy Announcement


I am beyond thrilled to announce that my husband and I have a bun in the oven! There was so much thought over when to announce and how. Is it too early? Can we keep it a secret longer? How should we tell people? Who do we tell first? I’m sure every first time mom goes through this and everyone makes their own decision on when the right time is.  (more…)
