Guest Post: Kate the (Almost) Great

Hello, folks, it's me again! You remember, Kate, from Kate the (Almost) Great? Teacher, author, blogger, coffee addict? Ah, that last part seems to ring a bell.
Now that it's July, summer is in full swing. If you're like me, it can be hard to handle the heat. I'm a New England girl, born and raised in Maine. But I'm familiar with the Tennessee heat from my Aprils, Mays, Augusts, and Septembers spent there during my time at Vanderbilt. And now that I'm moving to Nashville full time, I'm going to experience it fully. I handle the heat better now that I've spent so much time in the South, but I still can be a wimp. Here's what I need to handle the heat:
Light cotton maxi dress, like this one from Jack Wills. A complete outfit that will be easy on the body with the swelling accompanied by humidity.
Light cross-body bag, to hold only the essentials and make it easier on the muscles than a larger bag.
Some sort of water container to STAY HYDRATED! (That's wicked important.)
Cute sandals. Easy to wear, looks good, keeps cool.
Sunglasses - help your eyes (and prevent eye wrinkles if they're large enough) by wearing some!
How do you stay cool in this heat? Oh, and come on by my blog and stay in touch!

  1. I'm a New England girl too! I'm pretty jealous you're moving to Nashville though. I definitely agree with you on the cross-body bag and the sunglasses. Good luck with the move!

  2. Loving that maxi! Target has some great maxi skirts right now too :) And Jack Rogers will always always always be my favorite!

  3. I live in Houston so the humidity is killer! Definitely stay hydrated and wear lots of shorts and breezy dresses.
