Texas Heat

Living in the summer Texas heat you find you do whatever you can to stay cool!  Hair is always up off your neck and even accessories such as belts start to be avoided as an unnecessary added layer in this heat!
 That being said here are a few styles and ideas that work well in this kind of heat.

1. Airy Cotton Dresses
(Not jersey, and ones with a thin slip layer are best to hide the sweat! Yes I said it...sweat! It is unavoidable in this heat! It is almost unbearable to wear any kind of jeans! Light airy dresses are the best!)

2. Cut Outs/Open Backs
 (Keeping it classy and not hoochy is key...but anything to help feel the breeze is a plus!)


3. Printed Fabrics
(You might be asking why printed? Well not all fabric hides the fact that you are sweating bullets, and I find printed fabrics are a huge help!)

4. Swimsuits 
(I have to admit when at home I am usually working in my yard, or lounging about in a sundress or swimsuit!)

 5. Hats/Updos
(Keep the sun off your face unless you want to look like death in your later years! And keep your hair off your neck or you will die from heat!)

 These tips might seem silly to some, but if you live in Texas you understand! We are just far enough from the coast to not get much of a breeze, and far enough south to be get heat stroke!
