Princess Unicorn Birthday OOTD

Some of you might have read on my previous posts or seen on my insta-stories that we celebrated K's milestone 5th birthday 2 weeks ago. I've been mentally planning her birthday for months but really it all came together the last couple of weeks before the big day. I had every intention of getting everything ready sooner but I'm still working on the whole "balance" thing, I'll get there lol. It also didn't help that I got sick the week of her birthday, I was doing so well this winter too, it had to be that week of course. Thankfully I had a village of volunteers and some were voluntold but they all love K so they were happy to help. I'll be doing a full reveal of her party later on but in the meantime will share different parts of her party.

K knew that we were throwing her a party this year (we only have parties on milestone birthdays to keep them special) and since she doesn't remember her 1st one, her 5th was going to be a BIG surprise. She has been obsessed with unicorns this past year, her pretend character she calls herself is Princess Unicorn so I knew the party theme needed to be just that. For those that know me, know that I'm not very girly or over-the-top, I like simple and classic. And a Princess Unicorn theme was anything but simple and definitely girly and over-the-top, I really flexed my creative skills with this one. In the end, my inner secret girly girl had a lot of fun and really enjoyed having an excuse to buy all things sparkly! 

For K's birthday outfit I wanted it to be fun but practical. I got her things that she could wear all together for her birthday and then separately too when she's not in party mode. I found the dress at H&M over the holidays and it became the inspiration for the rest of the outfit. The dress had a lot of sparkle so I got her the fuzzy cream bomber to balance it out and to keep her warm. Added a little unicorn pin on it which made me think of the unicorn flying through fluffy clouds. My good friend Ming (Puzzle Creations) had offered to do K's hair as a gift for her birthday so I thought a big sparkly clip would go with her curls. To finish off her outfit I got her bunny tights (the only thing she loves more than unicorns is bunnies). And there you have it, my Princess Unicorn outfit.
