Light, White & Simple

Friday, May 3, 2013

Hello there, dah-lings!

Remember waaaay back to when I lived in Florida?  Yeah... like a suuuper long time ago... as in like, a little over a week and a half ago!  Hahaaa.  Well, I had a few outfit posts from my last days living there that I want to share with you still.  For those of you living in humid climates like Florida, you know how freakin' vital it is to wear light clothing when the temp starts arisin' this time of year.  Wearing fabrics such as cotton in the summer are so important to help you breathe.

I wore this outfit to a day at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park (which has a gorgeous spring-fed water park that you should visit if you ever find yourself in the area), and it was hot outside that day.  Keeping my outfit simple was of utmost importance in order to keep sane and not totally greasy [Sorry, that was gross. TMI?].

How do you guys keep cool during these types of sticky days?  Do you depend on light colored clothes?  Breezy tops?  Or do you just give up, put on a bathing suit, and hit the pool for the day?


Xoxo,
-Allie
