Magic at Play Outfits From Kohl’s and Disney (Giveaway!)

Last weekend, I left Ohio behind for another trip – this time to Disneyland for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Yes, that’s two conferences in two Disney locations within two weeks! I’d like to say I’m on the Disney tour, but no one has invited me to a conference on a Disney cruise…yet. You’ll be hearing more about both trips and what I learned in the weeks ahead!

This recent trip, though, was without the kids and Aaron. I was gone for five days, and by the time I got home, both Cordy and Mira looked taller. Mira, in particular, was definitely taller. Since when did she have a gap between the bottom of the pants and the top of her shoes? Did I accidentally dry them on high?

The truth is, both girls have been growing steadily over the past few months, but it took me this long to really notice. Which means that new clothes are inevitable. Mira often inherits some of Cordy’s clothing, but this kid has her own sense of style and often begs me to buy her a few new pieces of her own. It has to be a bummer to wear mostly hand-me-downs, so I often give in and buy her some new pieces that fit her personal style.

Mira’s favorite shopping spot is Kohl’s. OK, it’s one of my favorites, too. I’ll often give her a spending limit, and with my coupons and the store sales she usually has quite the haul when she’s done. And when the Jumping Beans line is on sale, she’ll go wild picking out new tops and skorts! She used to love anything pink, but her tastes have changed and she now likes bold colors.

At the start of this month, Kohl’s and Disney launched the “Magic at Play” clothing line, featuring Mickey and Minnie on a series of mix and match outfits and dresses.

Mira loves Minnie, and immediately wanted the entire line when she saw the red, white and blue outfits.

Aren’t these adorable? They’re made by Jumping Beans, so we knew it was quality clothing we could trust for reliable sizing and durability. I’m especially thrilled at the ability to mix-and-match so many of the pieces.

Mira's Minnie outfits

Mira can wear the same shirt with a skirt or with pants, depending on the weather or her mood. And the dress we purchased is perfect for Memorial Day and Fourth of July celebrations!

The only downside? These adorable outfits only go up to size 7, which means Cordy can’t join in on all of the Minnie Mouse fun. But perhaps if this new line is successful, they’ll expand it to larger sizes as well? I’ll be honest…I’d like my own Minnie shirt, too.

Mira LOVES her new outfits and hopes the warmer weather sticks around this weekend so she can wear them. The fabric and stitching are sturdy, so I feel confident that these clothing pieces will stand up to the playground.
