I’ve lived in south-east Queensland all my life yet it still shocks me EVERY SUMMER just how hot and humid it can get.
This week has been no exception.
I’m often asked why I don’t wear more clothes that are fitted and the answer is a simple one … flowy tops or dresses equal personal/portable air-conditioning.
As long as the fabric is breathable then I’m good to go.
I’ll still raise an unattractive sweat but it feels a whole lot more comfortable than if my clothes were tightly fitted.
I also get asked about slips and whether layering them underneath makes it hotter to wear the dress.
Once again, as long as the fabric of the slip is breathable then, no.
In fact it can actually help you to feel cooler as the fabric can draw and absorb your sweat, leaving your outer layers fresh as the day.
SY #everydaystyle (the one you liked the most)
Not everyone who’s joining in with #everydaystyle has a style blog – or any blog – but each week, I’d like to introduce you to a couple who do. You may be able to identify your style with them. You may connect with their lifestyle, their age, their shape or where they live.
Each woman may inspire you to stretch outside your style comfort zone a little. If that’s the case, subscribe to their blogs, follow them on Facebook or Instagram and show them the love. They’re worth it.
With One Glance: Davina is a professional Brisbane mum of three who has well and truly caught my eye with her 31 Days of Summer in Metalicus personal challenge. As you know, I’m a huge fan of the label and truly back its versatility. My collection doesn’t match Davina’s but she inspires with how she styles hers.
Middle Aged Mama: You might know Janet as Redland City Living but just this week she’s re-branded to become Middle Aged Mama. Janet has always blogged about fashion and has a knack for hunting down bargains. Now her blog will also include topics relevant to being a 47-year-old mum to kids who have almost moved out of home.
