How to Stay Cool This Summer
20 June 2016
Happy First Day of Summer! Summer weather usually starts very early here in South Florida and this year was no exception. It's been consistently steamy out since mid-May, and there will be no letting up until mid-October. Over the years of living in South Florida we have become more and more adept to dressing for the sun and heat. Basically, we know a thing or two about how to dress for the hot summer sun. Here are a few tips on how to stay cool this summer.
Depending on where you live, some mornings and evenings can still get pretty cool. Make sure you bring along an easy layer. A denim jacket
or waterfall cardigan are perfect for chilly summer nights. For us here in Florida we carry a cardigan or light jacket whenever we walk into a store or restaurant. The air conditioning in most places is cold enough to warrant a layer or two!
High Ponytails Topknots, or Braids:
We're always throwing our hair into a high ponytail, topknot, or braid during the summer to keep us nice and cool. If you have short hair don't attempt to grow it out just yet. You'll be much cooler with it kept short for the summer. Trust us. Need some summer hairstyle ideas? We have a board
UPF 50+ Fabric: If you've never worn our UPF 50+ fabric you are missing out. It's cool to the touch and wicks any sweat away as it happens. Did we mention it protects you from the sun as well? It also has just the right amount of stretch, it's perfect for packing too - no wrinkles! It's pretty much magic fabric.
Sandals: Now that the booties are officially put away for summer, it's time to break out the sandals! Wearing open toe shoes will keep you cool all summer long! Make sure you get a fun pedi before showing off your toes though!
Opt for White: If you're not wearing our UPF 50+ fabric make sure to opt for white and other light colored fabrics. Lighter fabrics don't absorb as much heat as darker colors do making it much more comfortable and whole lot cooler for you! How do you stay cool during the summer? Any and all tips are welcome!
