Weather Vain: Seattle, Washington - 64 With a Chance of Rain

image

The weather in Seattle today is very…Seattle-y. Here’s how to dress for it. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Some freakin’ awesome Rachel Comey rain boots—so that the forecast doesn’t keep you from exploring Olympics Sculpture Park.

+ A Cook & Gates tote—in case you stumble upon something you can’t pass up at Totokaelo.

+ Skinny sweatpants from Rag & Bone that you should probably never travel without again.

+ An Apiece Apart sweater as minimalist and perfect as the decor at Bar Sajor.

+ What’ll put a smile on your face as fast as a scoop of melted chocolate ice cream from Molly Moon’s? This Bing Bang cuff.

+ A blue braided Aurelie Bidermann bracelet—to compensate if the sky’s gray all day long.

Whoa, so much more “Weather Vain” over here.

Next Level: Quilted Florals

image

Listen, just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to ditch the florals—but you probably knew that already. How to make them a little more cool-weather-approp? Add some quilting. Four thoughts on that below. —erica

LEVEL I: Ooof, this creamy goodness from Tibi. Maybe with a little black turtleneck tee?

LEVEL II: If you’re worried about making your other sneakers jealous, don’t get these Soisire Soiebleu shoes.

LEVEL III: Masscob makes a moto jacket just a leeettle girly—but not at all prissy.

LEVEL IV: Now, here’s a fashion sweatshirt, c/o Wood Wood.

Hey, we’ve got a lot more “Next Level” that you should check out.

Next Level: Contrast-Heel Boots

image

Are these some good-looking boots? Oh, heel yes. Four chances to add a little something extra along with that height. —erica

LEVEL I: Aaaand, suddenly the classic shape of these caramel guys from Loeffler Randall gets way more interesting.

LEVEL II: A clunky black heel keeps this Opening Ceremony style from looking too disco-era.

LEVEL III: Rupert Sanderson delivers a hit of metallic pink that would make any outfit.

LEVEL IV: Is the dusty mauve of this 3.1 Phillip Lim creation what dreams are made of? I think yes.

Get over here for more “Next Level.”

Go on and find me a more modern take on the ballet flat than this Reality Studio pair. —erica

Weather Vain: Varmouth, Maine - 66 and Partly Cloudy

image

You know what’s beautiful this time of year? I’ll bet you can guess. Here’s how to make the most of a fall-ish day in Vacationland. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Current/Elliott jacket that feels juuuust a little seafaring. 

+ Totally possible to shove this Eayrslee wallet in a pocket—so you don’t get weighed down on a hike.

+ The perfect silk top from Joseph. (Right?!)

+ Oh, this Aesa bracelet definitely wants to head to Gather for dinner—mussels in saffron broth!

+ Atelier Delphine pants—with a stretchy waistband so that you can definitely order two scoops from Maple’s Organics.

+ The perfect Proud Mary shoes for this transitionary weather.

If you want more travel ideas, we got ‘em.

In Character: Gina from Empire Records

image

image

image

When you were in high school, you probably knew girls like Gina. She was trouble—but the fun kind. She loved attention. She was witty (“Well, ‘Sinead O’Rebellion.’ Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior.”). She was a big ol’ pile of sass. And her whole 1995 look? So not shocking: It feels very right now. —erica

image

Little silk shorts from Equipment—because Rex Manning Day.

image

Rachel Comey clogs ready to take the stage for a "Save the Empire" performance.

An orange Unison apron—worn on its own, duh.

Weather Vain: Toronto, Canada - 72 and Clear

image

The Toronto International Film Festival is underway! Here’s what to wear if you’re exploring the town SLASH watching movies all day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A surprisingly comfy By Malene Birger skirt—because elastic waistbands make theater seats a whole lot better.

+ Garrett Leight shades, so you get mistaken for a celebrity.

+ The sort of bracelet, by Giantlion, that you should pack for every trip.

+ A tote from The Stowe with plenty of room for chocolate-y snacks c/o Soma.

+ Loose and breezy—this Organic by John Patrick shirt is totally cool with you gorging on Campagnolo's wild mushroom pappardelle.

+ Rachel Comey mules that can handle a little shopping on Ossington Ave.

More of this “Weather Vain” thing! Lots more!

Maybe I’d feel better about how often I’ve been wearing jeans and T-shirts if I had these Loeffler Randall shoes? A sturdy heel, even. —erica

Next Level: Beet

image

Cranberry sounds so…early aughts. And maroon has a certain team spirit vibe. But beet? Now that feels right for fall—maybe paired with outwear in a nice goat cheese or sherry vinegar. (I know–ha, ha.) —erica

LEVEL I: One of those perfect sweaters, c/o Isabel Marant, that can do apple-picking or office.

LEVEL II: A so-sleek Alexander Wang purse that would give even your grungiest jeans some polish.

LEVEL III: A dress from Carven that would look almost impossibly put-together with sheer black tights.

LEVEL IV: Opening Ceremony shoes that put a little stomp in your step.

More of this “Next Level” madness!
