Happy Independence Day Y’；all!
I don’t know if you’ve been outside recently (you might be a hermit who has a deep-seated fear of ants， I can’t know that)， but it’s a toasty one!accent pillow case baby burlap boudoir
On the 4th of July this year， Miami is expected to hit 91 degrees， Dallas—101， and Phoenix 107. It’s making me hot just thinking about it.
For most of the U.S.， this is the hottest time of year. It’s also coincidentally the time of year our country asks us to sit outside in a plastic lawn chair for hours watching costumed civilians parade around in celebration of our country’s independence.
Although it seems that our founding fathers would have preferred we stay inside when it’s 107 degrees out there， Independence Day parades are a tradition. And more than thatpersonalized fathers day gifts， they’re fun!
To keep from burning off your britches this year (and to maybe even enjoy the parade for once) try these super cool parading comfort hacks.
You may be looking forward to spending the day in the bright， happy sun， but don’t forget that the sun is a benevolent beast that won’t hesitate to burn you to a crisp given the chance.
Cover your skin and your eyeballs. Sunscreen is great (for skin， not eyeballs)， but a quarter-sleeve t-shirt or light sweater works wonders for skin protection too. When it comes to your peepers， make sure you bring sunglasses and/or a hat with a nice brim. Your face will thank you for it later.
Don’t let a cloudy day fool you. It’s still important to protect yourself from those unseen UV rays that pierce through the clouds with zero forgiveness.
Like a mother who has just given birth， it’s easy to forget the pain that comes with Independence Day parades each year. Let me quickly remind you.
Children are running around like flies trapped inside a locked car， adults have completely given up already and leave their stuff strewn around the sidewalk like they own the place， the walk from the car to a nice semi-shaded spot down the parade trail is always about seven times longer than you expected it to be， and since you’re so good at sun protection， you now have at least five extra things to tote around that you forgot you needed to bring until you were walking out the door and already had the kids in the car.
Simplify this whole experience by putting everything on wheels. The cooler， the chairs， the sun protection， the blankets， the fireworks， everything. Pack it into suitcases or bring a wagon. You won’t regret it.
Not all fabrics are created equal. Take a peek at the tags on your clothes and keep these rules in mind.
1) Linen is designed for hot， sweaty people. It’s pure gold. 2) Cotton is the next best thing. 3) Rayon is great if you’re in a hot， dry place or don’t sweat much. It’s light， but also synthetic so it doesn’t wick away moisture. 4) Avoid polyester like it’s your mother-in-law or an Adele song on the radio.
The Independence Day parade is an action-packed event， that’s why we love it. But that also means your choice of clothing will greatly affect how much fun you have.
Just accept right now that you’ll probably get wet. White t-shirts and tight jean shorts should be out of the picture. You’ll also be doing lot’s of walking and sitting， so consider comfortable clothing and even more comfortable footwear.
With all that sitting， you want to make sure your booty is comfily cuddled while watching the show. Lawn chairs are better than blankets and a lawn chair with a？Purple？ Seat Cushion？is much better than lawn chairs in general. And since you’re rolling everything to your parade viewing spot anyways， it’ll be easy to bring a few ultra-comfy Purple？ Seat Cushions with you. See how it’s all coming together？
If you get particularly hot， don’t like the sun， or are a ginger， you might want to bring your own shade. You can usually find cheap canopies at your local Army Navy outlet and I guarantee this won’t be the only occasion a little portable shade will come in handy.
Shade will make you feel about 10 to 15 degrees cooler， and it’ll keep the sun from boiling you like a Christmas goose. It’s worth the investment.
In all sincerity， I hope you have a fantastic Independence Day. Eat some watermelon， blow some stuff up in a very responsible and controlled way， and get a？Purple？. It’s what our founding fathers would have wanted.
