You wake up, pull out your iPhone, check for messages, in addition to brewing the coffee, and getting ready for work. Due to the tight time constraints, who has time to mull over what to wear? Nobody has the time. And, to save even more precious time, I regularly screenshot great outfit ideas on my phone to pull inspiration. What happens when you leave the office sticky and sweaty? The weather is going through more changes than a mood ring. So what’s a fashionista to do? It’s currently 86 degrees in NYC. No, this blog isn’t to announce the Fashion Hunter’s new vocation as a weather girl. Although how fun would that be! Instead, I have spent a good, oh, 20 minutes sorting through my wardrobe trying to find something to wear. I know you can all relate. It’s fickle September. And Indian summer.

How to dress for Indian summer

The shops, meanwhile, are committed to their autumn/winter collections, with racks of scarves and heat-tech long johns on full display. But the problem with dressing for this September sunshine is that some people dress depending on what the morning sky outside their bedroom window looks like and some are committed to the weather report, shivering their way to the office in T-shirts and skirts, waiting for the sunshine. The key ingredient here is to layer. I pulled together this look because the subway is cold, fashion show venues are freezing, and I can’t adapt.
