Style me for: Animal Kingdom

About a week ago, I got an email from someone who came across my blog, asking me what she should wear for her family’s upcoming trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (That is what my “Contact” page is for after all….:))
As a proud wife and mother of 3, she wants to look fashionable yet functional with a unique twist. She has her itinerary all set with venues to stay and play after reading reviews and choosing attractions.  She has a lot planned forsure- eating at some of the amazing restaurants in the area, watching aworld- class show, taking the kids to the amusement park or having drinks with her husband. This means there will be plenty of fun photo opportunities!

I don’t know her personally but I was more than happy to help because I know you can enjoy yourself more if you look and feel your best, especially when you travel. I have put together a look which includes a few of my favorite things.
Here’s what I think would be a chic ensemble to take her from day to night.

Rompers! I love them.

They’re playful, girly and easy to pack. Dresses are breezy and easy to wear too but with a place that involves animals, I feel like that’s a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. She can wear this romper, which has a similar effect, as she climbs aboard the Wildlife Express Train at Animal Kingdom but just as easily wear this to dinner afterwards with just a change in accessory or a jacket/sweater.

Beautiful blonde hair and fair skin would be complemented nicely by this persimmon color. It’s perfect for warm spring weather and will look nice in photos.

I personally would choose this one because I have darker hair and am drawn to earth tones.

Even if you’re not on vacation, you could wear this with a blazer and wear it on a date!

As for shoes.. even though I am into the whole slip-on sneaker trend, I would suggest these Tieks flats. Not only are they cute.. but they’re convenient. These flats, as shown below, fold up into a portable size. Perfect for when you want to switch into heels later on or vice versa. I picked the snakeskin for her because they go with everything (skin is basically a neutral), it adds a nice shine to her outfit and also because she is going to Animal Kingdom… so I thought it’d be cute to go with the theme.

Danielle Nicole Alexa Tote
There is something about this tote that is so classic yet modern at the same time. I love it. It seems that this bag always sells out even as the colors and fabrications vary by season. I picked this tote for her because it will fit all her essentials in a stylish way. Plus, this bag can easily transition into her work wardrobe. Oh and it won’t break the bank!

My final advice would be to add a nice pair of sunnies and simple jewelry  to enhance the outfit, but that I’ll leave up to her. (I would recommend gold jewelry to go with my picks)
So how did I do? Hope this was helpful! Comfortable but chic outfits are the best.
I hope she has a wonderful trip with her family when she visits- she deserves it! Even on vacation she’s working to make sure that its fun and it goes smoothly! One thing is for sure: whatever she wears, she will look fabulous and her kids will most definitely agree that she’s the coolest and most stylish mom in the jungle.
Thanks for asking for my opinion. I had a lot of fun doing this. 🙂
