So I know I said that I wouldn't post very many Disneyland related things, but this post could really translate to many site seeing vacations. Plus, I just couldn't help it! I am so excited! (17 days, by the way). I am extremely picky about what I wear to Disneyland, and I often start planning my outfits weeks before the trip. (I am actually currently wearing the outfit I plan on wearing the first day, just to make sure it is comfortable). While I don't own anything that is actually on this post, these are similar to the types of things I wear.
1. Light-weight tank tops and tee shirts. This may seem obvious, but the dark, heavy tee shirts (of which I own way too many) are not great for walking around in the sun all day. I try to wear shirts that are pretty loose and flow-y so that if they get wet, then they dry quickly and don't get too uncomfortable.
2. Knee-shorts or capris. I am personally not a fan of things that go very far above my knees. This prevents my sweaty legs from sticking to anything and I also don't have to worry about how I look. The white shorts on this post are probably not the best idea for Disneyland, but how cute do they look with that top?
3. Dresses and skirts. These are actually probably my favorite thing to wear in the parks. I often pair them with leggings just so I don't have to worry about any accidental indecency while getting on and off rides. They not only look cute but definitely keep you cooler than short or pants.
4. Flip Flops. I know that many people discourage flip flops in the parks since there is so much walking around. But if my feet are shoved in tennis shoes for the whole day, then I tend to be more cranky due to hot feet than I would if I got a slight blister from flip flops. Plus, I never go without a pedicure, so I need to show off those nails!
5. A big bag. This is probably the thing I spend the most time preparing. I have used many different bags for Disneyland yet have never been satisfied. It needs to be big enough to hold a water bottle, camera, and light jacket comfortably, but not so big that it is awkward to carry. I need to be able to grab things out of it easily, but I don't want anything stolen. It needs to be cute, but still neutral. This year I decided just to make my own, so we will see how that goes.
6. Accessories. I actually don't wear hats or sunglasses ever, even at the park. But I probably should. Most people do. I usually either throw on a headband or tie up my hair and call it good.
Anyway, those are the basics that I always make sure to pack. When the time gets a little closer, I will share with you what I put in my daily bag. What do you always pack when you go on a trip? Any suggestions for me?
