It's Still Hot and I Don't Know What To Wear: A Memoir

It's Still Hot and I Don't Know What To Wear: A Memoir

Ah September. The time of year when you start thinking about fall but realize you live in Texas, and cooler temps are something you only experience in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s. You want to start buying sweaters, drinking hot cocoa, sitting on patios, but you’ll die so you post memes about it instead.

When the weather remains consistent in its relentless temperatures it’s easy to lose inspiration and wear the same thing every day, or persuade yourself to buy a completely new wardrobe, which like, we’re here for, but it isn’t always necessary.

Sometimes it just takes a little bit of fresh perspective. Gather all of your clothes together and get a good look at them. Unless you are one of those organized gals who separates her clothes by season in plastic bins and stores them in the attic with the Christmas decorations. In that case, forget about it and buy a new wardrobe. Buuutttt if you’re like me and everything is separated into a portion hanging within eyesight, and the remainder in two piles on the floor below one pile on the chair in the corner, you’re good to go!

Now you just have to think in terms of color pallets and the temperature of where you’re headed. If you know you’ll be in a well air conditioned space all day, throw a cropped sweater over your midi dress and call it a day. If not, go for a thinner knit sweater, the almost sheer kind, over a bralette and shorts, and scrunch the sleeves up to your elbows. A thin white button-down left unbuttoned over a cropped tank, mom jeans, and a handful of gold rings slaps a layer of chic on an otherwise chill look. Booties in beiges and browns paired with an all white outfit keep the feeling light, but mix it up a little.

Oh and hats. A Lack of Color felt rancher in a sandy hue suits any look from sundresses to skinny jeans. Trust us.

We hope this added a little inspo to a potential creativity drought. Meanwhile, get your pumpkin spiced lattes iced and stay safe out there.
