what to wear to an amusement park



[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f you read the post about my summer bucket list you’ll notice that I’m finally making a dent in that list! One of the things I wanted to do this summer was to go to a fair or amusement park. A community fair/ amusement park always has such vibrant energy. With the scent of cotton candy and BBQ in the air, colorful booths of fluffy prizes and families having fun on thrilling rides, all with the backdrop of the obligatory Ferris wheel; a fair is one of the best ways to capture the very essence of summertime! I went to a community fair recently and although I didn’t go on any rides, I had fun taking pictures (while strangers stared).

As always, I have some tips for you. If you are planning a day trip to an amusement park, here are some things to bear in mind when choosing the perfect outfit.

1. Comfort is King.

It is important to choose an outfit that you can move around easily in. Shorts and summer dresses are great options. Sneakers or sandals also make a great footwear choice. I prefer to wear a pair of shorts since I feel more comfortable in them, and it also eliminates the possibility of the wind blowing up your dress exposing what shouldn’t be exposed. You should also go with breathable fabric where possible to help you cool off easily throughout the day.

2. Accessorize with Sunglasses.

Since you are going to be active all day, this may not be the best time to layer on statement jewelry, belts, and watches. If you have to accessorize at all, I recommend a pair of sunglasses because you need to look cool in pictures; and it’ll also shade your eyes from the direct sunlight of course. A portable bag like the crossbody I have here is also great if you are like me and always have to go out three different lipglosses. It’s also great to help you keep the essentials like your bank cards, ID, and phone safe.

3. Choose a Flattering color.

Think of all the selfies to be taken for the ‘Gram. The sun is going to provide the perfect filter to give you a nice glow so why not choose a color that’ll highlight that glow and make your skin pop! For summertime, I LOVE warm yellows, sugary pinks (think bubblegum pink or cotton candy pink) and whites. As you wander through the park, don’t forget to take note of a backdrop that’ll flatter your outfit and strike a pose. Thank me later!
