Weather Vain: Lockhart, Texas - 98 and Partly Cloudy

image

Summer means barbecue, and barbecue means Lockhart, Texas. Here’s what to wear today in pit country. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The airiest linen dress you can find, from T by Alexander Wang.

+ A necklace by K/LLER that would look equally at-home in Austin, 30 minutes away.

+ A Komono watch—an homage to the Southwest Museum of Clocks and Watches.

+ A cuff from Dannijo that’s nearly as satisfying as a scoop of Century Sundae ice cream by Blue Bell.

+ A Kara bag with room for a score or two from Sol & Luna Antiques & Art.

+ Kelsi Dagger sandals that will still be comfortable after you gorge on salty, fatty brisket at Smitty’s Market.

Wanna mess with Texas? Head this way.

Weather Vain: Birmingham, Alabama - 94 and Clear

image

If you’re in Birmingham today, maybe carry around a personal A/C unit? How to survive a Heart of Dixie sweat fest. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Suno dress that’s juuuust a little Fried Green Tomatoes.

+ Sandals, from Charlotte Stone, ready for some dancing at Zydeco.

+ This Otaat/Myers Collective wristlet—nearly as enticing as a piece of Johnny Ray’s pie.

+ Collette Ishiyama earrings that would fit right in with the finds at Table Matters.

+ A Sensi straw hat that’s your best shot at staying cool—at least until it’s time to head to The J. Clyde for beers.

This cotton gauze Surf Bazaar dress is trying just hard enough to make you feel like you got ready. Do you know what I mean? Or is that just something I deal with? —erica

Everything about this Novis dress is just WHOA. I want to wear it with this Kathryn Bentley necklace and feel like the fanciest girl in town. —erica

Kaelen's resort 2015 collection is inspired by Joan Didion's Play It As It Lays. I mean, as if I wasn’t into it enough already. —erica

Via this Two dress, I discovered that I’m pretty into a grosgrain neckline. —erica

Weather Vain: Durham, North Carolina - 92 With a Chance of Thunderstorms

image

Ooof, guys, it’s a steamy one in Duke (and Clay Aiken!) country. Here’s how to at least attempt to tackle it. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ This Suno dress + Vietnamese coffee ice cream from The Parlour = a GD dream.

+ A ring, from Macha, that wouldn’t look crazy out-of-place at the Durham Bulls’ ballpark.

+ A Collina Strada pouch that would look just right amidst the tapas at Mateo.

+ The sort of umbrella by Orla Kiely that makes any precipitation feel a whole lot less gloomy.

+ Melissa flats that can handle a downpour.

A whole lot more “Weather Vain” to be had here!
