I call myself hot-blooded. That’s the kind way of putting it. What I really mean, of course, is that I’m a sweater, one of those people whose body temperature is higher than everyone else’s, no matter what the weather. I can’t blame this one on The Menopause either. First off, I’m not there yet, and secondly, these are no hot flashes we’re talking about. This is just me, how I’ve been walking around in the world since I was a kid. I use anti-humidity spray in my hair, because my humidity comes from within. I even installed a fan above the bed in the middle of winter so that I can kick off the covers and cool off in the night while my husband freezes.
Summer is the worst. When the sun’s at its highest, I’m turning pink with heat. I’m wearing my sunscreen, yes, but I’m always outside, whether it’s walking the dog or window shopping or sipping Sangria on a patio, and inevitably, I feel those insidious pools wetting me in inconspicuous places, like under my arms or boobs, and I need shade, even if I don’t want it. Mortifying, to say the least.
That’s why I was so thrilled to discover that Columbia Sportswear has a really cute tank top that’s sweat-proof! It keeps me cool and cute, all at the same time. Instead of sweating inside my shirt, I can feel protected from the sun and nice and AC-cool.
WHY WE LOVE THE ANYTIME CASUAL TANK BY COLUMBIA

I’ll be wearing it for all seasons, even under sweaters and jackets in the winter.
