Weather Vain: Dallas, Texas - 73 and Clear

image

This time last year, Claire and I were exploring Dallas, and we’re kind of itching to do it all over again—especially on a straight-up gorgeous day like this one. What we’d wanna wear! —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A denim moto jacket by Theyskens’ Theory—in case your shoulders get cold while eating tostadas de ceviche outside at La Calle Doce.

+ A T by Alexander Wang dress in a blush-y hue, inspired by Grange Hall's flower arrangements.

+ So slick, this Kelly Wearstler ring! It’ll fit right in at dinner at Tei-An.

+ A raffia bag, from Loeffler Randall, that’s totally ready for a happening summer.

+ The perfect Sicky shades for taking in the Nasher Sculpture Garden.

+ Shoes for showing off a Hiatus pedicure, c/o Opening Ceremony.

+ Collette Ishiyama earrings that would make all the fancy ladies shopping at Forty Five Ten swoon.

Got the travel bug? Us too.

It’s really too bad that Claire and I don’t have the same shoes size. Cause if we did we’d buy these Loeffler Randall guys and share them so that nobody missed out. —erica

Next Level: White Boots

image

Yah, these may not be as everyday-useful as those black chelsea boots you wear five days a week, but, hey, don’t you wanna switch things up sometimes? Four white-as-snow ways to do so. —erica

LEVEL I: These guys are so simple and yet so special, via Opening Ceremony.

LEVEL II: Well, zip-a-dee-doo-dah. Acne knows how to get things going.

LEVEL III: Loeffler Randall is well aware that black studs are cooler (and more wearable) than metal ones.

LEVEL IV: Can you tell these Alexander Wang boots are calf hair? I think the word you’re looking for is major.

More “Next Level!” Hey!

Maroon and hot pink: They’re like the couple that toootally doesn’t make sense until you see them together, as Loeffler Randall demonstrates. —erica

Doesn’t it feel like it’s time for a little European getaway? Here’s what to wear if you’re lucky enough to be spending a day in the Unvanquished City. —erica

+ A Hope shirt that makes a perfect backdrop for the scarf you’re bound to scoop up at A Vida Portuguesa.

+ Slim Seaworthy earrings that won’t weigh you down as you explore Foz. 

+ Y.R.U. shoes that mesh with the slick, beachy design of Praia Da Luz

Next Level: Pink & Red

Pink and red are not supposed to hang together—they kind of have a Capulet-Montague situation going. But, done right, man, can sparks fly. Four classy-cool ways to go. —erica

LEVEL I: How adorbs would these Loeffler Randall sandals be with rolled-up chinos?

LEVEL II: God, those blush-y hues. Reed Krakoff, you know what you’re doing.

LEVEL III: The cut-outs on this Mara Hoffman dress just contribute to the color-blocking masterfulness.

LEVEL IV: Subtle? Heck no. But this Venessa Arizaga necklace sure is fly.

Weather Vain: Miami, Florida - 84 With a Chance of Thunderstorms

image

Party in the city where the heat is on…or where it’s pouring down rain. EITHER WAY. Here’s what to wear in Mee-ah-mee on a day like today. (Keely! We miss you! Come back!) —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Loeffler Randall clutch, as fun as drinks at The Freehand.

+ The sort of so-easy Raquel Allegra dress that’s happy to live in a suitcase.

+ A Rag & Bone hat, protecting your hair from any T-storming—or, if the clouds part, the sun along the Wynwood Art Walk.

+ Rain sandals! Brought to you by Melissa.

+ Take this clunky-cool Jennifer Fisher bracelet to Joe’s Stone Crab or Yardbird, and don’t worry about getting messy. 

More of this goodness! Right here!

Forget black and nude. And metallics, too. Deck out your feet in colors straight out of the candy aisle. Here’s how to make it happen. —erica

LEVEL III: Loeffler Randall's purple and coral situation: a totally normal color combo (if you're a four-year-old girl). 

LEVEL IV: Whoa, K. Jacques. Get a load of this double-sided neon action.
