Weather Vain: Baton Rouge, Louisiana - 76 With Thunderstorms

image

Like Garth Brooks, I’ve gotta send my love down to Baton Rouge. Here’s an outfit made for a day like today. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Ready for dancing at Teddy’s Juke Joint? Cause this cotton Ulla Johnson dress is.

+ To protect that head of yours in case of a downpour: a white leather Etudes cap.

+ A K/LLER necklace fit for deviled eggs and crayfish at IPO.

+  A slick Louise Goods clutch, the color of a pint of Abita Purple Haze.

+ Dream Collective earrings—to hold you over until the April showers bring May flowers?

+ The most grown-up take on a jelly sandal ever, c/o Madison Harding.

Whoa, when it rains, it pours: Check out all of our “Weather Vain” posts.

Maybe if you wore this Grace Lee charm around your neck, you’d remember to put your clothes away? Wishful thinking, I know. —erica

Couple Up: Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston

image

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston have been a couple in two movies, The Object of My Affection and Wanderlust. But, turns they did stint together in real life, too, waaay back in 1998—and I’m pretty into the idea of them as a twosome. Maybe they broke up because of the soul patch he had for part of their relationship? —erica

Paul Rudd: A Pierrepont Hicks tie, a brown Everlane shirt, and a corduroy jacket from Billy Reid.

Jennifer Aniston: A Carven shrug (yes, shrug), a strapless column dress from Cedric Charlier, and a sparkly necklace by Tom Binns.

Get all the “Couple Up” you can handle if you head this way.

In Character: Harriet the Spy

image

image

image

Before Veronica Mars, there was Harriet M. Welsch, mystery-solving girl wonder. Here’s how to celebrate her look (and her 50th anniversary!), with the help of a very young Michelle Trachtenberg and a 1996 movie. Oh, and PSA: If you’re looking for a deeper read re: Harriet, dive into this goodness. —erica

image

A double-breasted jacket from Tibi—worn at least two sizes too big for her 11-year-old frame.

image

A Monserat de Luca binocular necklace, so she can always be sleuthing. STAY AWAY, Spy-Catcher Club.

image

Mismatched Sleepy Jones PJs that her nanny Golly (Rosie O’Donnell!) absolutely approves of.

Track Star: Charlie Hilton of Blouse



The Vibe: On their sophomore album Imperium, Portland’s Blouse has moved away from the synth-pop of their debut (which was straight-up wonderful) toward something rawer, incorporating some fuzzy guitar and a cello here and there. Charlie Hilton, the band’s vocalist, dresses in a way that really sells this change of pace: Her look’s sweet, serene, and totally laid-back.

The One-Song Intro: “A Feeling Like This”

The Look, Recreated: This flowy Samantha Pleet dress, this chain necklace by Bones and Feathers Collective, and this dolman-sleeve sweatshirt from T by Alexander Wang. —maitri mehta

Head this way to get some more fresh material for your Spotify listening.

Couple Up: Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson

image

Adam Brody is a married man now, but long before he shacked up with Leighton Meester, he dated her near-twin, Rachel Bilson. IRL and on the teevee! Here’s what their Seventeen-worthy relationship looked like. —erica

Adam Brody: Super sunglasses fit for a music festival, a red-and-black tee from Saturdays, and navy Supergas.

Rachel Bilson: Rolled-up Denim Refinery jean shorts, a sleeveless Americana shirt from Chaser, and a leather-cord necklace by Vanessa Mooney.

More couples of yesteryear right over here.

In Character: Kathryn Merteuil

image

Confession: I saw Cruel Intentions for the first time just recently. I know, I know. In case you’re wondering, it doesn’t really hold up, but I can imagine just how scandalized I would have been had I watched it at a slumber party when it came out. And Kathryn Merteuil, evil stepsister and prep-school princess who makes Blair Waldorf look like a real sweetheart, is at the heart of that. (Side note: I did still appreciate this monologue about slut-shaming, in case you’re wondering.) —erica

image

A Eugenia Kim sun hat, for teaching her young apprentice rival how to kiss.

image

A Vanessa Mooney cross necklace ready for some real bad-girl behavior.

image

A crimson silk robe from Zinke—for seducing Sebastian, Ronald, or anyone, really. 

It’s “In Character” heaven around here.

Weather Vain: Las Vegas, Nevada - 83 and Partly Cloudy

image

We just spent the weekend in Vegas for a wedding—a scheduled wedding, so don’t be getting any ideas—and here’s what we’d want to be working if we’d stayed an extra day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A nice antidote to all of the bandage dresses floating around, c/o Tibi.

+ For those chilly desert nights: an Esther Bonte scarf.

+ A Lila Rice ring ready for a hang sesh at The Cosmopolitan.

+ Night out OR poolside lunch—this Eayrslee clutch can handle both.

+ A Fallon necklace that’s very Julia Roberts in Ocean’s 11.

+ Sandals from K.Jacques that you can wear far away from the poker tables—like when sipping an attempting-to-detox juice at Rachel’s Kitchen.
