what to wear when it's 100 degrees outside

what to wear when it's 100 degrees outside

...a.k.a. clothing that barely touches your body. Even though it seems to have passed, we here in St. Louis experienced a couple of weeks of 100+ temperatures. Here are a few of my favorite things to wear when it's blazing hot outside: loose dresses, boxy tops, and breezy culottes.

Underneath, I like to wear something comfy like this (no underwires and sticky silky fabrics, please!) and this and these are great for a bit of chub rub (you know what I'm talking about).

We are in what is hopefully the last hot stretch of the summer. All I want to wear for work is this outfit which is breezy and cool. I'll admit, most of the time I wear it with more comfortable shoes, but for a recent mom's night out, I went fancy. ;)

I'm wearing an Eileen Fisher top, Madewell culottes (sold out but similar), Madewell sandals (sold out but similar), and old Forever 21 necklace (similar). Lots of Madewell these days. Keep your eye out for an event at the Plaza Frontenac store with yours truly and some extra discounts!

When it's 97 degrees and 80% humidity, wardrobe options are limited. The only thing I felt like wearing on a recent night out was the lightest-weight dress I own.


This dress was a long caftan-type thing that I thrifted. I liked the pattern, so I bought it and chopped about three feet off of the hem. The sandals and leather backpack are also thrifted - my whole outfit is thrifted, yay! I made my necklace in a metalsmithing class I took at Craft Alliance, which was really fun.

A few other items of note:
