How to dress for the weather

Here's an idea...when planning to spend and entire day in a theme park, be sure to dress in comfortable clothing, preferably in layers in case it gets too cold or too warm.

Advice clearly NOT AT ALL taken judging (operative word) by how some of the people I saw at Epcot were dressed.

It was a very breezy 62 degrees in Orlando that day. The sun was shining, but all of us were dressed in jeans and light jackets and were comfortable. But on the way in I spied no fewer than 15 very inappropriately dressed teenage girls in short shorts (the kind where your cheeks fall out, or maybe that's just me) and toddler sized T-shirts.


Naturally I immediately texted Megan and informed her of the fashion tragedies all around me. Her response? "Their obvious hotness keeps them warm. duh".


But hey, just because it's Florida doesn't mean it's a beach day.

And who lets their daughter dress like that?? Apparently a lot of people because they were everywhere and they looked really cold.


Every day before heading out I stepped outside to see what the temperature was like so I would be fully prepared when one of the kids started whining about being too cold. It's not hard to do.

What if that's all they packed and there's just nothing else to wear, you ask?? stuff! That's what Disney is for, right? So you can spend your life's savings on sweatshirts with characters embroidered on the back.

I'm hoping their parents at least asked them to dress a little warmer and then refused to buy them overpriced clothing when they started to whine about it. Something tells me they gave in anyway.

I saw a few of the fashion disasters later in the day and they had their "I look super cute in this so I'm NOT wearing a sweatshirt" faces on. Way to stick it out, girls.

Next up...Obnoxious herding mentality. It's not just for wild animals.

  1. Well, they wear those outfits to SCHOOL, so why NOT to Disney?? Try driving through the pick-up line (no pun intended) after school at a high school, and get a load of the trashy fashion that is de rigueur these days. very nice.
