Actual hot weather finally arrived in Minneapolis this week, but most days you’ll still find me layered like this. Why? Air conditioning, people. I swear, everywhere I go I FREEZE. It feels amazing to come inside from a humid 93-degree day and breathe in the cool air, but after about 45 minutes I feel like a popsicle. Anyone else super-sensitive to A/C?

Husband Mike maintains this is my coolest jacket due to the angled pockets. Not sure I agree about the coolness, but do dig interesting pockets … on this jacket, and just generally.

    I am super sensitive to A/C, to the point that my arms or legs ache if I go from hot/humid to A/C. I can’t sit in the car with vents blowing on me. I avoid shopping malls. I carry a jacket everywhere in the summer. My husband was just in the hospital for 5 days (long story) and I had to take extra clothes so I could stay in the room with him. When I left at the end of the day, I felt conspicuous and overdressed compared to the shorts/tanks/flip flops everyone else was wearing.

    Oh yes – I can’t stand air conditioning when I can feel the wind blowing on me. I can see the need for it when it’s over 90 degrees, but don’t take it so far that people have to dress like it’s winter. What’s wrong with being warm? Isn’t that a pleasant feeling?

    We went to one of our favourite restaurants the other day and I’m SOOO glad that I remembered to carry a light cardigan! It is now pretty hot outside, but they always have their aircon on, blasting cold air. I agree with your husband Mike by the way!

    Agree on the AC. I freeze in most grocery stores, restaurants, theater venues, etc. etc. People are always saying to me, “omg aren’t you hot?” Me: “Nope, I’m actually freezing cold.” I know most people are more sensitive to heat than I am, and I also know that the workers in the restaurants are really hot (esp those on the cook line). I cannot stand a breeze on me so often my spouse and I have to trade places when I notice the breeze, and I often reject seats in restaurants if there’s an overhead fan.

    I’m in and out of A/C frequently and have found that a white sweater or jacket is most useful. Even if it’s chilly inside it’s still summer, so I stick with summer colors, but keep something easy to take on and off around. A sweater is really best because it’s easy to stuff into my tote when I’m outside.

    Yes! I carry a cardigan with me everywhere all summer. I dress for the season, and it annoys me that we seem to try to make inside feel like the opposite season. (I also feel hot in winter when everyplace I go is overheated.)
