For my 2019 Spring Break, I decided to take on a little challenge: the Disney Bound Challenge, which occurs during the whole month of March. Disneybounders take on the task to go all out each day with outfits that correspond to a Disney movie given each day. For my mini-challenge, I chose 5 days out of my Spring Break to try Disneybounding out!

***Disclaimer: I decided to do this “challenge” AFTER I packed my bags, so I definitely had to borrow some of my sister’s and even mom’s clothes to make it work.***

You might be thinking, “What is Disneybounding?” Disneybounding is a challenge where you pick any Disney character and inspire your everyday outfits using them as an example.

There’s a whole Disneybounding community online that will show you how far they have gone. From casual outfits to full-out evening wear, this was a super fun challenge to take on.

From Mar. 17- 21, I played around with the characters and used A LOT of artistic freedom in these. Enjoy!

I paired my olive-green halter top with some ripped denim shorts to go walking around the old city in Cartagena. Not only did I need outfits that were cute and true to character, I also needed outfits that would fit my daily activities (which included a lot of walking this day specifically).

After watching many Youtube videos about “how to Disneybound,” I learned that there are no rules and that thrift stores are your best friends. I got these shorts for $3.95 at my local Goodwill, the one on Pensacola for my local FSU students, and I borrowed this Express tank top from my mom. I paired the outfit with some comfortable Croc wedged sandals (10/10 would recommend). I put half of my hair up in a fishtail braid and my outfit was complete.

This was extremely tricky since I was on a bus for a total of 8 hours to travel to and from Playa Crystal in Santa Marta. I was planning to lay out on the beach all day so I picked a character that matched my swimsuit. And considering how burnt I got, I lowkey started to incorporate his burgundy tie in my outfit (lol).

For this day I used a pastel Fashion Nova dress (thanks to my older sister) to incorporate a Spring color scheme. I paired it with some nice rose heels and I copied her signature flower braid.

My last day was also a beach day. Imitating her most popular outfit, because we all know homegirl was a fashion icon, I paired my olive-green shorts with a black tank. And with my puffy hair all over the place, it was a look. Simple yet practical.

Overall thoughts: As I stated before, I highly enjoyed this. I was thinking that if I could create all these outfits with the clothing items I had in one suitcase, with some exceptions, imagine what I could do with my entire closet! If you got to the end of this and want to find out more, check out a YouTube video by Disney Style that includes three Disney Bounders who bound in New York.
