Deodorant.

Loose clothing, not too tight because I hate clothes sticking to me. I like to wear airy fabrics.

BF's shirts have saved me. They're loose-fitting on me, so I'm nicely ventilated.

i live in SF valley in southern california...it gets unbearably hot here in july-october.
At that point it's mind over matter I find it easier to do in extreme heat than extreme cold.

I have been dying for the past week... I've been in DC and it is so hot. I felt better when I was at the beach this month.

Going back home isn't going to be any better.. back to Alabama.. woo-hoo

I hate summer weather.. and my knees got sunburned and then faded into a tan, so I have white legs and tan knees... it's awful

As summer is approaching I am resurrecting this thread.

What are your style plan for summer? I have bought some seperates I am still dreading those really hot days though.. I'm not very good with 'summer style'.

^I'm still looking into reverse hibernation. Summer instead of winter. Either that, or walking around the streets naked, swathed by a huge umbrella. It hasn't panned out yet, no one seems to approve. But I'm working on it.

^ I think a huge white parasol with Battenberg lace would be quite nice

So far I just have a silk halter dress that I'm layering over a little black SS sweater. It's very light & airy & I think should be good in the heat. I guess I'm waiting to be 'inspired' by the truly hot weather

Me too.

Since I hate exposing my legs I'm usually in trousers, flats, blouses and light weight tops nothing too heavy.

I picked up a gorgeous navy linen dress by Zara over the weekend, it reminds me of the stuff Marant used to make a couple years ago, very baggy and comfortable but so feminine. and also just spotted the perfect pair of tan sandals.

I keep saying I'll wear lighter colors in summer but I always end up going back to black/gray/blue, just noticed this past week as I had many ideas for summer but I moved to the south of the hemisphere, which is going through the late stages of summer, and coming straight from winter myself, it's been hard to embrace all the florals and bright colors that rapidly, it's probably not going to happen now that summer is (thankfully) nearly done.. adieu to Junya S/S 09 inspiration.

I keep wearing jeans until I start overheating, then I have to give up and wear shorts!
