During these hot sultry days of summer it is often very difficult to keep ourselves cool and yet be able to dress both fashionably and stylishly. We’ve all experienced that moment when we get ourselves put together in the morning to head out the door-perfect outfit, makeup and hair just right. Then you step outside and the excessive humidity hits you. All of a sudden you are transformed into a dripping wet mess.
So how can you stay cool and comfortable and still look great? One suggestion is to keep your clothes loose. The less fabric you have actually touching your body, the cooler you will be. This allows more airflow on your skin which will help cool you down.
I posed this question to the members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team. Here are their suggestions along with stylish clothes and accessories to help you look your best during the dog days of summer.
I am never without a glass of water when it’s hot in the summer. I have a 20 ounce travel mug that I fill with ice and then water and it gets filled again every hour. I stay very well hydrated and I do my photography before noon or after three. It’s been close to 100 for the past few days and even being outside and not moving around a lot brings on the sweat. The water is a necessity.
We live in Florida, so the heat and humidity is awful this time of year. My best advice to beat the heat, is don’t do anything, lol. Just kidding, to keep cool we spend a lot of time at our local springs where the water is very cold and refreshing. It is 70 degrees all year, or 72, the springs water temp.

Summer here in Washington state is never as hot as some states but when we do have those lazy days of summer I love to take a nap in the shade and drift off listening to the sounds of the day, the breeze, birds and the sound of children playing in the sprinkler of pool
