The meteorologist shared a slew of pictures of herself wearing the same chic, waist-accentuating yellow dress, revealing she has owned the dress for fifteen years. The images saw her wearing the dress when she first bought it back in 2007, again in 2014, and once again in 2022.

She used the photos of her look to make a point about her commitment to low-impact shopping, favoring consignment stores and thrifting to create her closet.

She also announced that: "I am now taking the #NoNewClothes pledge. No buying NEW (we can consignment/vintage shop) for 90 days."
