Bindi Irwin is bringing khaki back for her late dad
If you don't live in Australia, here's a delightful bit of news: Nov. 15 is a national holiday there to honor the late Steve Irwin.
Irwin, who was famous for his Animal Planet show Crocodile Hunter, died 10 years ago after he was stung by a stingray. He left behind an important legacy for animal-lovers and conservationists, including his daughter, Bindi Irwin, who paid him a sweet tribute on Instagram to celebrate Steve Irwin Day.
Bindi posted a snap that showed her late dad dressed in his signature all-khaki uniform, holding her as a khaki-clad tot at the Australia Zoo.
"Celebrating Dad’s life and legacy with Steve Irwin Day this November 15th @australiazoo," she wrote alongside the pic. "Encouraging everyone to wear a touch of khaki on this amazing day to remember all that Dad did for our world, inspiring us all to love wildlife and wild places. Thank you."
She also shared a collection of photos of her and her father getting into adorable outdoor adventures on Twitter.
"Khaki and the happiest memories. #SteveIrwinDay," she wrote.
Bindi isn't the only star who's celebrated Steve's memory today. Her Dancing with the Stars pro partner, Derek Hough, also got in on the celebration, posting a photo of Bindi to Instagram along with a sweet message to her dad and his fans.
"Since it’s November 15th in Australia I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Steve Irwin day," Hough wrote. "I was always a fan of his passion and love for the world. His legacy lives on. It was such an honor and privilege to get to know and work with his beautiful daughter. Such a special soul. Choreographing and creating with her, helping to tell her story will always be a highlight in my career. This image was taken at the end of our final dance which was a tribute to her super hero. Her Dad. Steve Irwin."
