Although I may have Israeli blood, and I’ve had 28 years on this earth, the heat still gets to me like any other human being. As I imagine most of you are like me, staying inside in the air conditioning is not an option when there is so much to do and people to see!
Today, let’s talk about ways to survive the heat. Because it doesn’t seem like the heat is going to break any time soon. Deal with it, or be miserable, right?
1.Invest in the best water bottle. One that keeps your water ice, and I mean ICE cold. It is called a hydroflask, and I have it in the mint green color. It is pricey, but worth every penny. I fill it with ice then top it off with water and it keeps my water refreshingly chilly for 24 hours. I tote it around all day and fill it when I see a water fountain. Ice water does wonders for keeping you cool and from panicking when you are starting to overheat.
I also recommend hydrating throughout the day. Drink as much water as you can before leaving the house, so that when you’re out and busy you don’t feel woozy.
2. Carry a large tote that will fit your water bottle and all other necessities. I love looking cute with a mini bag a much as the next chick, but when it is sticky and disgusting I’m not about to trade the comfort of having all my sh*t for the sake of having a cute little bag. Nope.
3.Think breezy fabrics, not clingy. Anything flowy and printed is good. That way you’re not sweating through that gray silk tank, which looks ridiculous and obvious that you are schvitzing your face off. A romper like this one works well and still looks polished. I also recommend flowy dresses or a lightweight coordinating set like in this post.
While it might seem counter-intuitive to wear more fabric, just trust me. Showing more skin, like a crop and spandex shorts, will actually make you feel hotter.
4.Walk on the shady side of the street. This might be obvious, but I will go out of my way to walk on the shady side of the street. At certain times of day, the buildings on my route cast shadows that make it much more comfortable to walk in. Walking a few more steps is good exercise anyway.
5. Remember your sunglasses. Squinting in the sun just makes me feel warm. Bring them in your big tote!
