As I wrote early in 2022, my style resolution for the year was to have a bit more fun with my closet and stop buying only neutrals.

Do you ever do a dress rehearsal?

The other day on Instagram I asked if anyone else gets seasonal amnesia–meaning you totally forget what to wear when the weather changes, even though surely it’s been 60 degrees at some other point in your life before this and you managed to get dressed then. I decided to try something new this season and tried on all my fall outfits at once, just as a refresher. Here’s what I came up with.

6 things I actually wear when it’s 100 degrees out

I have a really hard time figuring out what to wear when it’s 100 degrees out (or more). The truth is no clothing seems reasonable for extremely hot weather, and most sources of fashion inspo don’t account for these temperatures. So here are some outfits and closet essentials that I am actually wearing for high summer.
