How to stay (and look) cool this summer. It’s a challenge every year: how to keep your style train on the tracks when it gets sticky hot. In Florida, that stickiness starts in June, and lasts through October, so we need a lot of help down here.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
I like to wear cotton and linen in the heat. Lightweight knits are fine too, as long as they don’t grab me anywhere. Creative layering is not advised, and any piece that stands away from the body is going to be more wearable. So I fell hard for these checked cotton high-waist trousers, from the closet of the fabulous Melanie (Bag and a Beret).
The blouse is 100% linen, and not the scratchy kind. I found it at Poshmark for under $20. I don’t often wear pastels, but this sea blue color makes me feel cool. I’m looking for a few more linen tops, and I embrace the wrinkles.
