Get Her Look: Young Donna from "Mamma Mia: Here we go Again"
Mamma Mia has always been one of my most favorite movies, so, to no surprise, I was incredibly excited for the second one to release. It's crazy to think that this came out almost an entire decade later. I can't say enough great things about this sequel. I honestly have never seen a sequel that was as good or even maybe a little bit better than the first movie, and but Mamma Mia made it happen.
While I was watching, I found myself LOVING young Donna Sheridan's outfits and costumes. Lily James did an incredible job playing Donna, and might just be my new favorite actress. I've spent some time trying to find photos from the movie that display her outfits, as well as searching online through my favorite sites to find similar items so that you can get the look.
First, the infamous butterfly necklace. Donna rocked this necklace for basically the entire movie, and I love how it became her statement piece. I found a similar item at Nordstrom for only $75!
Next, I fell in love with her adorable off the shoulder tunic dress and have to admit it was a bit hard to find a similar item since this is so unique! I've linked an option that will give you a super similar vibe to this dress. I have also linked adorable booties and sunglasses that are like the ones she is wearing in this photo!

Next, I was inspired by the adorable ruffled flare jeans she wore during her performance with Donna and the Dynamos on the island. These are too cute and I found an almost identical replica handmade for sale on Etsy for $74!
