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!

Dontcha think these suckers, from The Palatines, would make the ideal first-day-of-school shoes? —erica

Weather Vain: Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California - 87 and Partly Cloudy

image

We were in L.A. last week, and you know the one thing we don’t like about that place? Leaving. Wah. Here’s a getup that’s itching to head to all of our right-off-the-101 haunts. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Kieley Kimmel top ready to hit the boutiques around The Junction.

+ A piece of cool-girl fine jewelry from the L.A. sisters behind Gabriela Artigas.

Proud Mary loafers comfy enough to stand in line at Sqirl.

Damir Doma culottes that are ready to catch any breeze that comes their way.

+ A Job & Boss wallet-slash-clutch that won’t weigh you down at L&E Oyster Bar.

Head here for a whole lot more “Weather Vain.”

Weather Vain: Aspen, Colorado - 79 and Clear

image

If you’ve ever been to Colorado in the summer, you know that people who see this only as ski-bum country are totally missing out. And Aspen in August? Less fur, more fresh mountain air. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A silk top from Alexander Wang that would look totally right hanging in a suite at The Little Nell.

Blanca Monrós Gómez earrings that deliver a little “Aspenglow” (« John Denver shout-out!).

+ Slipping into these K.Jacques wedges and heading off to Peach’s for bfast = the ideal way to start the day.

+ This Suno skirt feels Frenchie enough for trout almondine at Brexi, right?

+ An Eayrslee wallet you can slip into a backpack when hiking Lost Man Loop.

+ A Tarin Thomas ring that would look pretty sweet flipping pages at Explore Booksellers—a local institution for sure.

Get away with us. All kinds of “Weather Vain” here and now.

Weather Vain: Malibu, California - 77 and Clear

image

Let’s be honest: There’s no such thing as a bad day in Malibu. But today—well, this Monday is especially lovely. How to take advantage. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Raquel Allegra dress that will disappear right into the furniture at the aptly named Sunset restaurant.

+ Earrings, from Ursa Major, that you don’t have to take off for beach yoga.

+ Totally appropriate for an afternoon at the Getty Villa, this Lizzie Fortunato bracelet.

+ A sweater from Theyskens’ Theory, that, along with a glass of something red c/o Malibu Wine, is ideal for combatting any chilliness come nightfall.

+ Slides by The Palatines that have the same earthy-polished vibe that you’ll get at Malibu Beach Inn

Whoa, there’s a lot more of this. See it all.

Next Level: Slide Sandals

image

The deeper we get into summer, the more the idea of straps and buckles and laces starts to grate. These four pairs of no-nonsense slide sandals will have you slipping out the door in a hot second. —erica

LEVEL I: These Palatines guys go with everything—cut-offs, silk maxis, etc.

LEVEL II: Minimalist! Silver! Criss-crossy! Looove, Jeffrey Campbell.

LEVEL III: Rachel Comey def knows how to make a black sandal stand out.

LEVEL IV: Jem would die for this Miista style—she really would.

More “Next Level!” Get it.

A black tank + skinny-but-worn-in jeans + these Chrissy Morris sandals = the easiest (and possibly best) summer outfit. —erica
