Weather Vain: Charleston, South Carolina - 81 and Partly Cloudy

image

The weather’s starting to turn in NYC, but in Charleston? Definitely still walking-down-King-Street-in-sandals temps. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A minimalist Miranda Bennett that’ll earn appreciative nods from the guys at the cool-dude shop Indigo & Cotton.

+ A pair of simple slides from The Palatines—for shuffling around Heirloom Bookshop, prettiest cookbook store imaginable.

+ To keep the sun out of your eyes on the roof of The Vedue: this Rag & Bone visor.

+ A 10 Crosby Derek Lam skirt that’s WAY ready for an oyster-fueled meal at The Ordinary.

+ Alynne Lavigne earrings the color of High Wire’s sorghum whiskey.

+ A slick, silver clutch by Baggu that’s ready for any ol’ thing.

Click, click, click for more “Weather Vain.”

This Richards skirt is like a prism through which I’d like to see jazz up the boring stuff in my wardrobe. —erica

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: Pleated Minis

image

Listen, no one’s suggesting you go full-blown Cher Horowitz (or early Britney). Here, four pleated skirts acceptable for grown-ass women. —erica

LEVEL I: MSGM makes herringbone neoprene shockingly classic.

LEVEL II: On this black Tibi sucker, the pleats are almost a secret.

LEVEL III: The fabric of this tweed number, c/o Alice & Olivia, feels all modern ‘n cool.

LEVEL IV: Yah, it’s plaid, this Sea guy. But it’s also wooly, not-too-flouncy, and killer with some black tights.

All the “Next Level” you want. Get in there.

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!

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.

Cannot stop thinking of Diane Lane when I see this Won Hundred skirt, with its below-the-knee hemline and its up-to-there slit. —erica

Deceptive: These Lemlem separates don’t actually have any colors in common. And that’s what makes ‘em work so good. —erica
