Well, this week my family is on vacation at Disneyworld, so I thought it was the perfect time to share with you my suggestions!
Here are my top 5 things not to do:
1. Wear new shoes
2. Wear high heels (think of Gloria from Modern Family)
3. Wear a bikini top as a shirt (I’ve seen this on hot days).
4. Wear a fanny pack (See picture below for further proof)
5. Dress your entire family in matching outfits
Now that I’ve gone over the “dont’s” let’s talk about some “do’s”!
In my opinion, the 2 most important “do’s” are: 1) comfort, 2) layering.
The weather in Florida can change quickly- so you want to be prepared for anything! Also, you will be walking ALOT so you definitely need shoes that are ultra comfy.
Let’s look at the photos above. As you can see from my picture on the right I am wearing a colorful t shirt, cropped jeans and my comfy tennis shoes. Problem is, I look like a total dork!
On the left I have on much cuter cropped jeans (ankle length is much more flattering than mid calf), a striped tank and a bright zipped hoodie. During the day when it’s warm, I can take off the hoodie and the tank is cute enough to stand on it’s own. In the evening, I’ll throw the sweatshirt back on.
As for my feet- I have replaced the clunky (and dorky) tennis shoes with my Puma’s. These are as comfy as tennis shoes, but much sleeker and stylish.
The last item I would recommend is either a cute backpack (especially if you have small children who can’t carry their own stuff) or a large cross body purse. I’ve opted for the purse option. My kids are old enough now (9 & 11) that they can carry their own drawstring bags with sweatshirt, sunglasses, water bottle, hat, snack). That leaves me to carry wallet, camera, guide book, scarf and a bottle of water.
My aim isn’t to be the most fashionable person in Disneyworld- but I at least want to look somewhat cute- espcecially since we will be looking at the photos from this trip for years to come…
