In Character: Catherine Boyd

image

So get this: Not only was Albert Einstein a groundbreaking theoretical physicist, but he was also a matchmaker (equally impressive, no?). At least that’s what the 1994 movie I.Q. would have you believe. And you know what? I’m sold. Not just because his niece (played by Meg Ryan) looks freaking adorable—and smart!—in every scene, either. —ericaimage

A Mansur Gavriel bag, for carrying around her own mathematics research.

A dress from Lela Rose, for watching Boyd’s comet from a convertible.

Marais USA shoes that are sensible but chic—Nathan Liebknecht, Boris Podolsky, and Kurt Godel would love them.

Weather Vain: Berkeley, California - 72 and Clear

image

THIS WEATHER! Berkeley, you sure know how to make an East Coaster jealous. Here’s how to take advantage of all that Alameda County’s serving up. —erica

+ Shades, by Thierry Lasry, ready to take in the Tilden Park views.

+ 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.

Come on and check out the “Weather Vain” archives.

Next Level: Perforated

image

Holes: such a thing right now. Below, four takes on the perforated motif that are totally perf. —erica

LEVEL I: Throw this Rag & Bone sweater on with a tank, and walk out the door. Well, maybe put some pants on, too, but you get the idea.

LEVEL II: The grape-y, Laffy Taffy-esque hue of this Rachel Comey tote really makes those hole-punches pop.

LEVEL III: Check out these super-slick 3.1 Phillip Lim flats! Those diamond-shaped cut-outs would let any crazy sock choices shine through.

LEVEL IV: What’s this? Oh, just the nuttiest ring you’ve ever seen, from Kelly Wearstler.

+ House of Harlow leather studs that pay tribute to the desert sun. 

+ Karen Walker shades as freaking classic as tamales at El Modelo.

+ The type of shoes you can basically wear year-round in this climate, from Rebecca Minkoff.

Weather Vain: Detroit, Michigan - 72 and Partly Cloudy

image

There’s some coolness happening in Detroit right now, and a downright lovely day like this one is the perfect time to explore it. Here’s what to wear to get down with The D. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ An M.Patmos silk tee cool enough for Corktown.

+ A warm-hued Annie Costello Brown cuff that will look appropriate next to a scotch Crimson Dynamo cocktail at Sugar House.

+ The sort of jumbo Steven Alan tote ready for a camera and some time at the Motown Museum.

+ Elizabeth and James flats—kick ‘em off and tuck into bed at the way-cool inn Honor & Folly.

+ Tiny studded Tom Binns hoops that feel very Rock City.

+ A Haute Hippie blazer that dresses things right up for dinner at John D.

+ White MiH jeans—because the weather’s totally asking for ‘em.

Weather Vain: Park City, Utah - 37 and Partly Cloudy

If you’re in Park City today…well, LUCKY YOU. Embrace the fact that it’s not nearly as cold as it could be—and tell JGL I say, “Heeeeeeeeeeeey.” —erica

image

Clockwise from top left:

+ A silky Equipment shirt that adds polish to pretty much anything.

+ Collina Strada's solution to keeping your room key—and chapstick—close-at-hand.

+ A crazy-cozy, chill-preventing layer from Maiami.
