MONDAY MORNING: 8:42AM. Your alarm goes off for the bajillion-ith time but it’s Monday so like, grrr. You finally wake from your fever dream and you realize you’ve sweat the bed. Disgusted, you check your smart phone’s weather app and the three digit blasphemy is staring back at you: 103 degrees.
For most of us in Southern California, we’re just trying to get our Fall and eat it too (PSL is NOT just a midwest fantasy, hunties). If you’re like me, shorts and berkies are not the tea, so how can we survive indian summers and still get our autumnal fashion kicks in too?
Check out my survival guide on how autumnal heat waves:
STEP 1: Use this meme:
Put it on ALL your socials. Who knows, your co-worker who’s late might see it before they head into the office and rethink their denim fantasy and go for more of a chiffon moment.
STEP 2: Use this gif:
Because it is. Weather THIS hot is only deserving if we’re actually sitting on a Hellmouth.
STEP 3: PLAID COMES IN CHIFFON
Still want to get that Luke’s Diner look in without having to break a sweat? Well there’s plenty of brands making plaid chiffon tops that will still put the lumber in your jack. Click here on where to get yours.
STEP 4: ICED PSL
I know, I know. It SUCKS. Trust and believe. I too, want to go apple picking, don a scarf, wear my witchypoo boots. But the cosmic gods are frowning upon us and this current election so you might as well jump on board and grab a pumpkin spice latte. Iced, of course! (DUH!)
STEP 5: MICRO-CLIMATE
You could also say, “fuck you, weather” and just go for it. High-waisted skinny jeans, your fav pendleton jacket, a beanie, and your pilgrim strap boots. Grab a hot ass coffee and own the shit out of your look. Do it. People will stare, but who cares? You’re fashion!
