Fashion Inspiration: Disney’s Old Key West Resort

Walt Disney World captures the fun of the Florida Keys in the form of Disney’s Old Key West Resort. Colorful buildings and palm trees line the resort in true Florida style with a magical twist. In the hustle and bustle of park-going and sightseeing, the Old Key West allows guests to relax thanks to its low-key feel.

Whether or not your summer plans include venturing to Disney World or the Keys, you can achieve a bright, but casual aesthetic in your summer outfits! Below, I created two looks inspired by Disney’s Old Key West Resort. Scroll down to see them both:

Island Time

Key West Resort Outfit 1
Top, Shorts, Shoes, Bag, Sunglasses, Earrings, Polish

Change your watch to island time when you wear this adorable beachy getup! Step out in a pastel green button-up paired with lighthouse printed shorts. Grab a “beach” printed tote, a pair of strappy sandals, and aviator sunglasses for a classic, yet summery vibe. Finish the look with starfish earrings and a swipe of tropical teal polish.

Key to the Kingdom

Key West Resort Outfit 2
Dress, Shoes, Bag, Necklace, Earrings, Sunglasses

For a look that’s a little dressier, the key (pardon the pun) is to pair a simple shift dress with brightly-colored wedges. Add some fun jewelry with a floral bib necklace and conch shell earrings. Complete the resort-ready ensemble with cat eye sunnies and printed tote bag.

What do you think?

    The second look is really nice. I like the simplicity and boldness mixed up with some kooky. Would totally wear on a holiday wherever!

    I really like the fairy tale atmosphere captured in the picture, the reflection of the resort is incredible…I would definitely take a long princess-like walk every morning wearing something similar to the “Key to the Kingdom” outfit… but similar to Cinderella, I can only dream about it for now.

    Love love love these outfits! They really capture the Florida aesthetic, without getting touristy. I would only wear them at night, though. Florida summers are way too hot and muggy for sleeves!

    Kay, thank you! I was aiming for a more versatile look. I’m a Floridian (born & raised) and long-sleeves actually keep you cooler than tank tops during Florida summers because they keep the sun off of you. Tank tops make you hotter believe it or not!
