It's not something I'd want to do in a business suit or uniform, but as long as I'm dressed comfortably it isn't that bad at all. Worst case scenario is sweaty clothes.

Sweaty clothes is a pretty bad scenario to me lol. I usually wear jeans even in 90 degrees. If I shaved my legs then I'd wear shorts but I only do that a few times a year usually in summer.

And you're from Florida? Half the time I don't even realize my clothes are wet until I get home and start taking them off.

LOL people are so different.

I shave my legs every single day, winter or summer or any day in between! And I just don't sweat that much - unless I'm in New Orleans and then I sweat like crazy for some reason. But I call it "glowing." That's what southern women do -we "glow."

What's important in hot weather is natural fibers like 100 percent cotton. Or linen, though I don't care for the wrinkles so I seldom wear it unless it's the wrinkle resistant sort. I remember being in New Orleans one time in the summer and by 9 am I was wondering "What the heck? I'm sweating like a pig!" and I realized my shirt was a poly/cotton blend. I ducked into a shop, bought a 100 percent cotton shirt, and changed. VOILA! Felt great. I mean, it's still hot, but like I've said, that doesn't bother me unless it's crazy hot like over 95 or so.

But I wouldn't trade the humidity for dry air any day. That's one thing I always liked about living on the east coast as well as here - the humidity. As long as there's a breeze (which there always is on any coast and usually is here) I'm good to go!

Yesterday here was funk. High was about 39 and it was wet and gray and cold. UGH UGH UGH. Today should be sunny and 56 degrees for a high and a low of 30. Nice!

Yea and it doesn't take much for me to sweat. I don't know why. Probably more genetic than adaptive.

Snow always puts me in a good mood. Just so relaxing to walk out in it!

Yea, summer isn't nice clothes season in TX. Lots of folks around here have a closet full of athleisure for that very reason.
