"I don't burn at all. My south Indian skin loves sunshine. I could do without the extreme heat however.

I start feeling chilly around 55 if sunny and 65 if cloudy, so that's usually when a hoodie comes in handy.

I can handle temperatures around freezing wearing a T shirt for short periods of time, though its a bit painful."

For some reason, heat on the whole feels different here from the northeast. It was 90 F today here and my skin felt kind of prickly with a burning sensation around mid afternoon. This is also the first time I have encountered dry heat.

Maxi dresses for the most part!

Or a maxi skirt w/cute top

rarely shorts but occasionally capris

never jeans when the temps hit 70+ degrees

I love white jeans and thin cotton short sleeve t-shirts or summery blouse. Yesterday I bought a pair of ankle-length pencil leg khaki's at Gap yesterday and a white-t-shirt (can we ever have enough white t-shirts??)....sandals, maybe a gauzy scarf if I'm going out - nice straw bag....stacks of pretty bracelets...these are the types of things I wear every day. Shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops are too young of a look and too casual for much of my lifestyle (except around home).

I also love short cotton dresses with sandals - if it is really hot, there is nothing cooler than a short cotton dress - no binding around the waist, good air circulation - shows off your tanned and toned legs...a little string of pearls and a swipe of lipstick and I am good to go for any hot summer day.

Our weather in KY has been great - everything is emerald green and lush - we have had enough rain to not need to water anything, just enough heat and humidity to wear summer clothing, keep our southern complexions looking good but not too hot to be outside and work in the yard, go for walks, shop, boat, bike or hike...other than fall, this is my favorite time of year - just before the extreme heat and humidity hit.....but even in summer we have days with normal humidity and under 85...usually several each month. I'll take the heat and humidity over the cold any day - and this from a native Californian! Love the south!

Arrived back east after my short trip to Sacramento. A bit nippy tonight in CNJ with lows in the mid 40s. Wearing a ribbed heather gray sleeveless tee with blue sweats. Rubbed a bit of sandalwood powder to my underarms and got rid of the stale flight smell. Got a gorgeous tan from Californian sunshine. Oh eve thanks for telling me to go outdoors, the valley was wonderful . Odd that summer retreated, cuz the high today was just 68 F here.

Today, I am going to buy a few swim trunks. I have joined a swim club from June-August. Tired of going to the gym every day, and want to do something different as an exercise.

OTOH, my body has a few fat rolls. Hopefully, people don't treat me differently because of it .
