Happy Monday, ladies! Today, I wanted to share with you five ways that I survive the intense heat of summer. For those who think I may not understand summer heat, well, you must not know that I am born and bred in Texas…and heat is our middle name.
The time I get most frustrated with it is around September when I am ready to change seasons and say goodbye to sweat. But, rarely do we have cool Septembers. I have friends who love the heat and spend time out in it…I am not really one of those.
#1 MORNING IS OUTSIDE TIME
Morning is go time for me. I very well may be at the grocery when some of you are just beginning your day. I get up early and get out to care for the plants, and run what errands I can before the temps begin to creep toward 100 degrees.
Today, I am wearing a Chico’s blouse, Christopher and Banks walking shorts and BZEES Sandals. (The sandals are in the slideshow) I am not really a pastels/summer colors girl. I own a little, but not much. I prefer the earth tones in neutrals for the summer…it part of Pamela-style!
#2 WEAR A HAT
A great hat like this Vince Camuto hat from Dillard’s really does make a difference in keeping the sun from my face and helping me to stay overall cooler. I am getting a lot of mileage out of this hat this summer.
I cannot say it enough…hydrate, hydrate, hydrate….good, fresh, water…throughout the day. Remember to drink more if you are outside for any reason. Learn to love water if you have not done that already…the benefits are many.
#KEEP THE AIR MOVING
I have become someone who must have air moving at all times. I am blessed to own a home with a ceiling fan in every room and I was thrilled when Soft Surroundings sent this cell phone fan! It has been a blessing when I am at a salon or in a situation where the air is stagnant.
I am also a huge proponent of beautiful, traditional fans for summer events. I find them to be quite elegant. Today, I am wearing a leopard cuff also sent from Soft Surroundings. Like the pop it adds to this outfit.
#5 EXCELLENT SUNSCREEN PRODUCTS
There is a company is San Antonio, where I live, that is doing so well due to a successful line of sunscreen products they created called SUPERGOOP! I have wanted to try them for a long time, and was so pleased recently when my youngest son walked into the house with a Sephora bag, just for his mama! His 27 year old skin looks amazing and he attributes it solely to good care with Supergoop. After a few days of using these products, I am sold…they are excellent and put a beautiful shine on your complexion.
You can tell by my super white skin that I need sunscreen. After a skin cancer scare a few years ago, I really take it seriously and have ceased trying to have skin color I was not born with. I have these products in the slideshow below.
Today’s look is a typical errand running style for me these days. I prefer the look of a walking short on me over a shorter one. However, I kept my kimonos and still love them in the summertime over sleeveless tanks. I know they are oversized but I often find them to be an elegant look as well. Thank you for being here…please share your top ways of staying cooler in the summer! It is possible to be in high heat and
JUST A NOTE:
There are several ways that I generate income through this blog in order to cover business expenses and give myself much needed income. Purchases through the slideshow links is one way, ads on the page is one way and a new way is through ordering or re-ordering the GOLI Apple Cider Vinegar gummies through me with my GOLI LINK HERE. Again, if you are not familiar with the benefits of apple cider vinegar, you should speak with your personal physician. My husband and I are sold on the benefits and I am proud to represent this product. I am going to leave this at the bottom of my posts so that when you, friends or family would like to order you can use my link. Thanks for the support. This is a great product; as well as, the ones below!
Mr. B and I love our meals from Sun Basket!
