Reader Request: Family Vacation Style

dressing for family vacation

Reader Ursula posted this question to Facebook:

Have you written about how to dress for family vacations (Disney specifically) and not look like you are trying too hard (or too little as the case may be)? Struggling with function and body image on this one.

I’ll admit to never having entered a Disney theme park and I don’t have kids myself, but I’ve been to loads of amusement parks for day trips and taken plenty of vacations – with family and alone – that require similar amounts of walking and standing in line. (Think art museums in Florence in June. LINES, people, oh the lines.) So although I can’t speak from direct Epcot-based experiences, I will make my suggestions and ask those of you who have done Disney or similar family trips to lend a hand in the comments! read more

Still not loving the wedge sneakers from last season and don’t quite get some of the Adidas-dress pairings I’ve seen in streetstyle photos, but I’ve definitely come around to the look of a sleek, classic, clearly-not-meant-for-actual-gym activity sneaker. Naturally, my leopard Chucks are the current fave. But here are some other pairs that I’ve been ogling.

Keen Maderas Lace – $41.99

These have been on my wishlist all summer, and I will probably bite the bullet soon since they’re on sale. I haven’t bought Keens in nearly a decade, but still have my super-comfy green high-tops in storage. The white sole makes these seem a bit seasonal, but they could certainly work in spring and possibly fall, too. And seriously, love that gray. Rare in fashion sneaks for some reason. read more
