OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Lazy summer days…lounging poolside reading a good book, bringing your famous potato salad to picnics in the park with friends, and oh yes…going to theme parks! From Universal Studios to Disneyland to Six Flags to even Dollywood, summer in America means forking out tons of money to spend an unforgettable day screaming your lungs out on roller coasters and chowing down on cotton candy and churros. The only thing that could really make the day sour (aside from super long lines) is walking around the theme park in uncomfortable clothing. Let’s be honest, if you’re not comfortable, you’re just not going to have a good time. Here at The Good Weekend, our Outfit of the Day (OOTD) is not only the perfect attire for walking back and forth across the park, but every item does something good for the world.
A-People Tree Stripe Heart Tee in Coral,$36: This cute and comfortable T-shirt is made of 100% organic Fairtrade certified cotton jersey. People Tree is committed to working with Fair Trade artisans and farmers around the world to offer a selection of ethical and eco-friendly clothing items.
B-Kuyichi Lil Skinny Cinch Lucky Vintage Jeans, $135: Jeans are perfect item to wear as you transition from the hot afternoons to the chilly nights at the park and are casual enough that when you spill your soda, ice cream, and pizza all over them, no one will give you a double take. These jeans are made with organic cotton (which reduces both carbon and polluted water footprint) and recycled materials from a factory in Turkey.
C-Ethletic Fair Trainer White Cap Lo Cut Collection in Nude, $74: Perhaps the most important component of any theme park outfit is the shoes. If you don’t have comfortable shoes, waiting two hours in line for Space Mountain is just not going to be worth it. These sneakers are made with 100% organic Fairtrade certified cotton and sourced from Fairtrade producers, meaning that the producers will receive fair prices and decent working conditions!
D-Hiptipico Crochet Tassel Backpack, $85: It’s essential to bring a backpack to a theme park to hold all of your, well…essentials. If you’re spending the whole day at the park, you can conveniently throw in your sunscreen, water bottle, hand sanitizer, camera, and map of the park so you can be hands-free. The Hiptipico brand is committed to working with local indigenous artists in Guatemala to provide them with a steady income.
E- ICU “Preppie Retro” Sunglasses, $21.95: Be prepared to block out the sun in these snazzy shades made with reclaimed materials.
