What to Wear to a Theme Park When It’s Sweltering Hot Outside

Theme park season is officially upon us. Choosing what to wear can be somewhat of a challenge when I’m trying to simultaneously pack light while also putting together outfits that work from 6AM all the way through midnight. Being a theme park veteran, I put together 5 no-fail outfits that always get me through long summer days at theme parks from morning until night.

Pin this post—it’ll be a lifesaver when you’re packing last-minute for your own trip.
