Greetings from the puddle I currently live in for the foreseeable future. As the numbers on the thermometer creep higher than my high school test scores, it’s time that we talk about how not to feel like you’re walking through soup on your way to work. Looser silhouettes and light fabrics (think linen and cotton) are basically the only way you’ll survive the stifling heat of global warming summer. I have some suggestions, but let me know how you deal with the slow, swamp-ass-filled march through the summer months.
