It has been really hot. Sticky and humid. The walk outside and instantly start sweating kind of weather. I’ve been rotating through a few key pieces that are keeping me cool. Sitting in the kiddie pool helps too. Here’s my favorite wardrobe staples for really hot weather.

Hot Weather Wardrobe Essentials

Sezane Conrad Organic Cotton T-Shirt

I have this tee in several colors but white is my favorite. It’s thick but still light and breezy. I’ve spilled on this tee a bajillion times and always managed to get the stains out no problem, not to mention it’s held up to a ton of washing. I have this tee in size small and medium, small is a little loose and medium is oversized.

Mate the Label Midi Dress

I LIVED in this dress last summer when I was pregnant and it’s still one of my favorites for everyday. It’s super soft and comfortable, washes well, and fits really nicely. It’s form fitting without being skin tight. I have a small which is a little loose but still has shape. I have it in the charcoal color. Also I went home and puked for the rest of the day after we took those photos (above). I do not miss being pregnant.

Cultiver Linen Tank and Shorts

I discovered this brand when I was working on updating my summer capsule. This linen tank (in S/M Natural) and these shorts (in Medium Natural) have been on constant rotation as a set and separates. I also ordered the shorts in small in Navy and I decided to keep both but I like the slightly looser fit of the Medium a little better. A few ways I’ve been wearing them: linen tank with my AGOLDE Dee shorts, linen shorts with my Sezane cotton tee, linen shorts with Rails button down.

Midform Tevas in Metallic Champagne

I love my Tevas and I don’t care who knows it. Craig’s reaction to my Tevas was something along the lines of “you’ve given up.” Well I beg to differ Craig. If I’m being honest though, I remember when they came back a few years ago and there was a big influencer campaign and I thought, no I’m not on board for this. Well fast forward a few years, an aching back, and a baby and I AM ON BOARD. I lived in Tevas as a kid and I was very pleased to find this metallic champagne pair in the midform style (got a size 7 and I think they fit tts). They may be polarizing, but I’m team Teva. By the way I’ve been mispronouncing the word my entire life. It’s pronounced TEH-VAH (soft e) and it means nature in Hebrew.
