Jambo! I'm back at the DAK fashion once again, but this one is extra special! Not only was this my first trip to Animal Kingdom as a local, but I showed some casual Disney Style by wearing a pair of flowy shorts from my friend Katie's new boutique! Some of you may know Katie from her account @onceuponamickeybar ! Katie is the first ever small shop I purchased from, so it's amazing how life happens and made us friends! Her new business venture, Spring Garden Boutique, offers pieces perfect for being on trend, chic, but most importantly COMFORTABLE! The shorts I'm wearing in these photos are so soft and comfy and they have pockets(!!!!!)! I love the floral design on them so much and they just paired so well with the lush scenery of DAK. What I love about the pieces Spring Garden offers is that they are all things that can be dressed up or down and worn in the parks! I could've easily paired a Disney shirt with these shorts! Instead though I added my Disney elsewhere with my other accessories!
To add a bit of Disney magic to this outfit, I dawned my new Mickey Safari hat! Technically this hat is a youth hat but I had no issue with it fitting my head! I also paired some fun bangles (like always) to add that subtle Disney touch! The quote bangles I'm wearing are from Lillian & Co and I wear them daily! The others are Alex and Ani bracelets!

(Cute behind the scenes detail: the Alex and Ani penguin bangle I'm wearing was a surprise gift from Dylan! Penguins are our animal. From day one when we started dating, (over 7 years ago) we both found out that we LOVE penguins. So since then we would surprise each other with little penguin gifts, so getting this bangle was such a special treat and was too perfect not to wear with this Animal Kingdom inspired outfit!)
I am always so inspired by Animal Kingdom! I love dressing for this park so much because I feel it lets me show my style in a very organic way. DAK is unlike any of the other Disney parks. It doesn't scream Disney right on the nose, which is why I love being more creative and subtle with my outfits for this park!
I am working on a series of posts inspired by each park that I can't wait to share with you!
