Stay Cool in Style - Lovely Folding Fans

One of the best habits I picked up during our time in Japan was carrying a sensu - or folding fan - during hot summer days. We're in the midst of a blazing heat wave here in Toronto, and this being our first summer in years without AC, I'm so thankful to have a few fans to choose from!

In places like Japan and southern Spain, fans are considered a summer essential, not just a pretty souvenir or wedding favour. Here are some lovely ones I found on Etsy, should you be looking for a way to cool yourself in style this summer:
