Toy Story Style at the Fair
It’s fair time here in Southern California and thanks to Toy Story 4, any mention of a fair reminds me of the movie. I decided to take my Toy Story best to the OC Fair by bounding as the well loved duo: Woody and Buzz.
I am not going to lie though, I really wasn’t a fan of the movie. I meant to write a little review, but I will just put it on here. Toy Story 4 felt like a cash grab to me, and yes, I am a sucker who still saw the movie and bought all the merch. Sue me!
I wanted more of my childhood favorite Jessie and all the other characters I’ve come to love. Ducky and Bunny were HILARIOUS, oh and we can’t forget the iconic Duke Caboom, but despite the great characters Pixar added, I was still yearning for the old.
And can we talk about the ending? It felt too rushed! I did love when one of the last scenes panned over the entire gang, but their goodbye felt too quick. I love how at the end of Toy Story 3, the ending was really dragged out with Andy saying goodbye to each of the toys. This just didn’t hit me in the feels exactly the same.
I could go on and on about this movie and don’t get me wrong, it is a GREAT movie. It’s just not a good Toy Story movie! Maybe if it was marketed as a stand alone adventure rather than tacking on the number four to the end I would feel different, but it just seemed completely necessary to the franchise.
Anyway, let’s get on to what you came here for: Toy Story 4 in style!
Here we are again, with more Buzz fanny pack content. I just can’t get enough of this Danielle Nicole bag from Lulabites, so I had to style it yet again! I found this star jersey at my local thrift store for only $2, as well as the Buzz sweater and skirt. When going to the fair, I definitely recommend bringing along a jacket as the nights can get a bit chilly — just like at Disneyland!
I’m a huge fan of styling a classic pair of vans with a skirt or dress. It instantly dresses down the look, giving it a skate vibe while remaining comfy enough for a long day. If you’re worried about flashing anyone while getting on and off rides, then pop on a pair of shorts underneath the skirt, which I definitely forgot to do!
You may be wondering, haven’t you worn a similar look before? Yes, yes I have! I put together this outfit for opening night of Toy Story 4 at El Capitan, but didn’t get any photos of the front. I picked up these oh so comfy pants at Forever 21 on sale and paired it with this thrifted Cowboy style tee. When I was sifting through the racks at the thrift store, I initially passed up this shirt. I eventually went back, realizing it would be perfect for a Woody bound, plus it was only 80 cents! Why not?
I found this ADORABLE Woody jacket on Shop Disney and knew I needed to have it. It’s actually a kids jacket, so I popped by my local Disney Store to make sure it fit. Thankfully I was able to squeeze into the largest 9/10 size — score! I finished off the look with a Toy Story bandana I picked up in Japan and of courses added my favorite Woody bag from Harveys.
