Good news: summer is here. Better news? We still have many more months before the chilly fall arrives. And while I’m excited about everything cozy, the colder months there’s nothing better than organizing my summer wardrobe. We’ve said goodbye to long-sleeve and layered tops and welcomed open-arms skirts and shorts. Really, changing up my summer wardrobe is one of my favorite things about changing seasons.
I’ve always firmly believed that what you wear can play an important role in your overall mood and confidence, and each season is a new opportunity to show the best version of you.

How to build a sustainable summer wardrobe
I recall the days in New York living in a small apartment. I will pack my winter clothes to make room for new options that will fill my closet every summer. However, as I got older, had children, and started paying more attention to my carbon footprint, it became clear to me that this revenue ratio is completely unsustainable and very hard to afford!
For the past few years, I’ve been working on my summer wardrobe collection. It’s made up of timeless pieces that work for me and my body year after year. Taking this approach helps me keep buying new clothes to keep up with trends. Sure, I love following them here and there, but as a stylist before 11 years, I have a pretty good idea of staples that will never go out of style. Trust me: These are the items that will anchor your summer wardrobe.
