Moms know that kids love visiting amusement parks and resorts and the summer is the ideal time for most families to enjoy these excursions. One thing that many moms don’t think about is the amount of pictures and experiences that happen on these trips. Without proper planning, Mom can look and feel frumpy instead of fresh and fashionable. Here are the perfect choices for your encounters with large furry animals and roller coasters!
Rompers are the ideal choice for comfort and style. Try a utilitarian style in a durable fabric like denim. Moms should also look for a style that has pockets and a slightly loose fit so they don’t feel constricted during the day. One to try is this AG Adriano Goldschmied Chambray Romper ($139, shopbop.com).
If you love dresses, try a flowy, cotton sundress like this Fringed Ruffle Neck Trapeze Dress from Loft ($30, loft.com). For added comfort, try a pair of bike shorts underneath so you never need to worry about how you look getting off a ride!
Probably the most important part of walking and standing all day is comfortable shoes. Find a pair that provides comfort and cuteness at the same time. One pair to try is Skechers Go Play Sneakers ($48, skechers.com). These combine a lightweight design that you can wear without socks, so you can keep going and going and going…
Style and utility
Amusement parks are often an all day excursion, which means you need the right bag to keep everything that you and the family need. Try a practical yet fashion-forward backpack so you can be a chic mama. One to sport is this Coach Poppy Denim Print Backpack ($298, macys.com). Not only is it fashionable, but it has pockets on the outside for water bottles and inside it has multi-functional pockets for your cell phone and wallet.
Being in the sun all day means Mom needs the best sunglasses to protect her eyes. Look for glam oversized frames with polarized lenses to protect your peepers from the glare of the sun, like this pair from Prada ($275, sunglasshut.com).
Since the temperatures might drop in the evening, it is always smart to bring along a sweater or sweatshirt. Feel like a fashionista, not a freshman, with a hoodie like this Wildfox Couture Maui Babe Gypsy Hoodie in Malibu Pink ($118, shopbop.com). Just make sure your tween daughter doesn’t try to claim it as her own!
