Weather Vain: Miami, Florida - 79 and Partly Cloudy

image

We are, unfortunately, too old for spring break (or is it spraaaang break?). But if we got to escape to FL right now, we’d want to be chilling in Miami on this lovely day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ As crisply chic as, well, everything about The Raleigh Hotel—that’s what this Apiece Apart top is.

+ Thierry Lasry sunglasses, in colors that mesh with all the neon lights.

+ In case an outing to Hyde Beach is in the cards: this Sophie Hulme sucker.

+ The print of this neoprene skirt by Emma Cook? Totally goes with the wallpaper at The Broken Shaker—and that’s a compliment.

Etten Eller earrings with appropriately Deco vibez.

+ Robert Clergerie shoes that match the sand.

+ A happy-making Alison Lou ring, straight from The Webster.

How to dress for this weather?! Lots more ideas coming at you.

Weather Vain: Santa Barbara, California - 71 and Partly Cloudy

image

Now’s the time of year when we’re especially desperado to live in California—to have dependable weather that almost always qualifies as lovely. Here’s looking at you, Santa Barbara. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ An Ace & Jig top that you could totally throw on over a swimsuit when things heat up.

+ Perfect tortoise sunglasses—c/o The Row—to have on-hand at all times.

+ Boy by Band of Outsiders chinos—cuffed and ready to stroll throw the AVA Santa Barbara vineyards. 

+ A ring by A Peace Treaty that, with its triangle motif, pays tribute to the pizza slices (prosciutto and burrata, white anchovy and ricotta!) at Blue Tavern.

+ Walking shoes by Marais USA, down to hit Mission Historical Park.

+ An Acne jacket for when there’s a (sigh, perfect) chill in the air at night.

On the hunt for better weather? Start here.

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.

Couple Up: Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton

image

THESE TWO. There were the vials of blood they wore around their necks—ok, fact-checking says lockets with a drop of blood, but still—and all that public, er, heavy petting. A look back to Billy Bob’s marriage #5… —erica

Angelina Jolie: A thick Kule cuff, J Brand leather pants, and a Current/Elliott crewneck tee.

Billy Bob Thornton: A loud Robert Graham shirt, tan leather Built for Man pants, and Garrett Leight wire-rim shades.

It’s “Couple Up” central over here!

image

The Vibe: Though they’re not twins or even sisters, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the vocalists for the effervescent band Lucius, are all about the double-trouble. Their matchy mod look is almost spooky, but they pull it off in a big way.

The One-Song Intro: “Turn it Around”

The Look, Recreated: This 3.1 Phillip Lim black-and-white dress, these wedge mary janes by Jeffrey Campbell, and these nutso sunglasses from Linda Farrow. —maitri mehta

Weather Vain: Buenos Aires, Argentina - 80 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Most of us north of the equator are probably itching to go south right now, and where better than B.A.? Here’s what we’d be working if we were jetting to the Argentine capital right now. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ An Alexa Sofia scarf nearly as sweet as Nucha's baked goods.

+ A Black Crane top, as chilled-out as the lofts at Home Hotel

Pants—from Base Range—baggy enough for a healthy portion of grass-fed beef at La Brigada.

+ An Elizabeth Knight necklace game for some Palermo Soho shoppin’ time.

+ Shades, by Warby Parker, for strolling Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays.

+ The sort of Rag & Bone vest you should always toss in a carry-on.

+ A made-in-Argentina bag from the talented ladies of Hare+Hart.

Loeffler Randall shoes that can handle a really, really late night.

Whoa, there’s more “Weather Vain!” Have at it.

In Character: Brandon Walsh

image

image

image

Dylan may have been the 90210er who induced the most heart palpitations, but there’s something so reliably appealing about Brandon—his vaguely James Dean style, the way he dealt with Brenda’s antics, and, yah, that hair. —erica

image

A Save Khaki henley—for late nights working with Andrea on the West Beverly Blaze.

image

A Scotch & Soda jacket that can be tossed on over a Peach Pit uniform.

image

Octagonal House of Harlow sunglasses for checking out convertible-driving CA girls.

Whoa, get a load of all of these “In Character” posts.

+ A linen shirt from Organic by John Patrick that’s as understated-yet-perfect as a cup of coffee from Philz.  

+ The West Is Dead chinos the color of some Donkey & Goat syrah. 

+ Anniel flats—because there’s something confusing about sandals in January.

+ A Baggu tote fit for some serious produce hauls. 

+ Kathleen Whitaker earrings that feel like new classics, Chez Panisse style.

+ This Anndra Neen necklace + a tequila flight at Comal = a pretty fantastic night out.
