I've been sticking mostly with denim jeans and polonecks layered under a dark jacket or coat this winter.
I really was surprised to buyingin-& loving me - creams, tans, beiges, +pale yellow which is new to me- this summer. Loved these paired with bright whites especially- so doing a pale neutral column of color first time in my life and not feeling washed out- who have had guessed? And loving my bare face (just a little foundation and tan-but invisible lips/brows and eyelashes included!!!!) ???? Skyrocketing!
Hmm, I really had to think hard about this and even then didn't come up with much! ... it's been the same old, same old here. I didn't really buy anything for 'high summer' weather this year, and I'm feeling a little frumpy lately tbh ... probably need a few updated piece for next year.
Loving my new white non-skinny jeans though (I think they are called girlfriend jeans but not sure) and finally our heat wave has broken so I should get some time to enjoy them in the next couple weeks.
What about you NM? Any standouts?
In my neck of the woods, summer has been HOT. Most days have either been hot and humid, or rainy. My coolest clothes have served me best, and that includes the two dresses and one skirt outfit I keep reaching for.
White linen Kelsey skirt: Alex MIll
Blue gauze cropped Skylar tank: Carve Designs
Oatmeal linen Courtney sack dress: Sugar Candy Mountain
Navy seersucker field dress: W'menswear

Worn on repeat in spring: My new waistcoat in soft "baby" wool and in several cool colours (a playful patchwork look), crocheted by my dear Mum.
Worn on repeat this summer: Ankle length sleeveless dresses, breezy midi skirts, capris, tank tops, woven shirts worn as jackets, Birk style sandals.
Vivian - those pieces are SO great ! You find the coolest pieces .

Vivian, that dress in pic 3! I love that. I need it in some other color. I think I need to google it.
As summer began, I thought I’d be wearing quite the same as last summer, when I intentionally wore my “cute” tops -decorative or construction features and pretty prints-, matching shorts and sneakers or flowered Birks. I settled on a true outfit for each day, even though going nowhere except local walks. It was a strategy to keep my spirits up.
Janet, I stumbled onto that dress in a local boutique. It was on the sale rack and I grabbed it - and so glad I did! It's what I wear when it's too hot to think. The neckline and the tulip/bell-shaped skirt give it structure so it works for me.
Sugar Candy Mountain has a lot of great looking dresses, other pieces etc. Going to follow this brand for sure. Jenn, have you seen it? Looks like your type of thing too .
Slightly cropped sleeveless top paired with full midi skirt has been my go-to formula for non-gear days this summer, often with a boxy cardigan and/or anorak as we’ve had a cooler July/August punctuated by brief heat waves, plus *lots* of rain. I’m also really liking technical fiber high-rise joggers paired with either a merino tank or a long-line sports bra/crop top and sometimes a button front shirt thrown on top, either open or partially buttoned. Almost all of my sneakers and sandals go well with the midi skirts; I’m less satisfied with my shoe options when wearing joggers but haven’t quite nailed down why that is. Dresses and jumpsuits have received slightly less wear than last summer; again, not sure why but not too concerned by it.
@LaPed Yes re: shoe and jogger pairings!! They all seem awkward- I think it's cause the tapered legs.
