If you live on the same side of the world and hemisphere as me and a few other frilly individuals you will have gathered that we are definitely getting that Summer heat; and if you are frilly this could be quite a bad mix. Though it's been up and down temperature wise there have been days that I feel as though I can melt into the sidewalk (yesterday being one of those days), with all those frills it can be ridiculous. Even though there are so many layers within this fashion though there are ways to beat that heat. In this weeks topic for the Lolita Blog Carnival we discuss what ways we find in order to keep from turning into the wicked witch of the west, these are 5 ways that I do it.
<3 Hand Fans <3
These are a frilly persons best friend no matter what the coordinate. Not only are they cute and can match any of your co~ords, if you shop around enough, they are compact and easy to travel with. If you don't own one you should pick yourself up one, even if it doesn't match.
<3 Parasols <3
<3 Hats <3
As everyone probably knows by now, I am a hat person and think that antique and vintage hats go so well with Lolita fashion. It is another good way to keep the sun from beating down right on your head if you don't own a parasol.
<3 Boleros <3
Usually I would make some blouse suggestion with certain fabrics for this topic but there really isn't anything quite like a short sleeved bolero. there are a wide variety of styles and a lot of them are in light weight, breathable, fabrics that really make life easier.
<3 Stay Hydrated <3
So these are the top 5 ways I beat the heat in this fashion and think they would be useful habits to pick up. If you are curious to read on ways other frilly individuals do this too you can check them out in the links they've provided, below. Hope you've enjoyed this weeks topic, I'm about to head out with these things into the fray to go pick up fabric. Cheers! XOXO
