If there's one thing I love more than going to Disney, its going to Disney Springs and shopping for some new closet must-haves for my frequent Disney Park Days and beyond. I'm always looking for new subtle Disney Style inspiration and my go-to stores at the Springs never disappoint!
Disney recently invited me to an event where we got to check out a new Disney Style store coming SOON to the Disney Springs area as well as giving us the opportunity to shop and check out some of their newest retail locations! The Disney Style store that will be opening aims to immerse the shopper into the feeling of walking into a park for the first time! I was able to learn all about what went into planning this store, what their inspiration was, and how they are planning to incorporate magic moments that guests can take advantage of right on the spot! Think perfect photo moments that will be great for taking pics with your friends and sharing on Instagram and beyond! It's sure to inspire guests when picking out their park day outfits!
I was in complete awe learning and hearing all about what goes into making a store like this come to life! It's so much more than clothing racks! Disney plans everything down to the finest detail and I think y'all are really going to love what they are bringing to the table!
As for the merchandise Disney will be offering in this new location, you can expect some NEW items to be sold there! Over the past year or so, Disney has really stepped up their game and is really starting to get an understanding of what people are wanting when showing off their Disney Style. They are of course still keeping comfort in mind when it comes to the styles they are offering as well as the larger audience of Disney goers and families. There were several pieces that I'm excited to style myself and put my own spin on and I can't wait to see how you all get creative with the styles too!
If you watched my stories, you'll have already caught a glimpse to some of the items that will be sold there! My personal favorites were a bedazzled "I live in Fantasyland" tee as well as a sweet little number from The Dress Shop that features a cardigan with carousel horses on it!
I just can't help but be inspired by this whole process. It is my dream to one day be working on this creative team and bringing some of my own style and design ideas to life. (I'm telling you this because I strongly believe in speaking your dreams into existence.)
After the morning of inspiration, I spent the rest of the afternoon hitting up some of my favorite stores with friends and treating myself to some new pieces courtesy of Disney!
I really wanted to showcase the amazing retailers at the Springs, so I tried to include as many pieces available there for my outfit as possible! Zara is always one of my go-to stops for Disney Style inspiration! They often carry Disney pieces (like the Mickey shorts and pants everyone obsessed over) and there's never a shortage of staple pieces that will perfectly mix with your Disney tees and accessories! Another thing I can always count on Zara for is finding lots of polka dot options that are perfect for any Minnie Style!
For my outfit, I really wanted to look chic and polished with some pops of fun color! This definitely wasn't a Disney-centric outfit per se, but it wasn't lacking in Disney nods or inspiration! It was still very me and fits in perfectly with the Disney aesthetic.
What I loved most about these pants is that they are so versatile and fit me so well. They're perfect for dressing up a Disney tee or pairing with a polkadot blouse! You can bet I'll be doing both with these!
The graphic tee has "More Amore" on it with sunflowers and gemstones and totally had me singing "That's Amore" from Lady and the Tramp when I saw it!
My purse from Harvey's isn't a Disney design, BUT if you check out one of my fave stores, Ever After Jewelry Co. (located in Disney Springs next to Anthropologie), you'll find several of their Disney inspired designs available for purchase! They carry an array of magical accessories ranging from handbags, ears, and jewelry! It's a not-to-be-missed stop if you're looking for a little pixie dust to add to your outfit.
My mules were my subtle nod to the iconic yellow shoes dawned by Mickey and Minnie! These make the sweetest, colorful statement and make me feel so well put together! Talk about bringing a little Disney inspiration in even the smallest way!
My hat has been a current staple for me and goes with so so much in my wardrobe and it went perfectly with this ensemble in place of my usual ears!
The yellow daisy sunnies were the perfect finishing touch for the sunny day we had while shopping and always give any outfit that cute factor that I love!
If you're looking to shop my other favorite stores, I've compiled a quick list of my usual stops!

Thanks so much again to Disney and Disney Springs for having me here for this event! As a frequent goer to Disney Springs, it was a true honor to see what goes into making our experience there so magical!
Be on the look out for a recap of my Late Night Disney Springs Outing!
