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: Bozeman, Montana - 90 and Clear

image

Not to get all Dixie Chicks on you or anything, but this time of year makes us yearn for wide-open spaces. Like, say, Montana, with all that National Park-ness…and lack of population density. Here’s how to embrace a day in Bozeman. —erica

+ A bangle from K/LLER that feels completely appropriate for a night at Plonk Wine Bar.

+ The ideal Ancient Greek sandals to slip on after hiking the M.

+ An Acne dress that’s plenty loose—in case you go hard at Granny’s Gourmet Donuts.

+ Cowboy poetry?! If you score some at Country Bookshelf, this AANDD bag has room.

+ Ahlem shades to take in all those Big Sky views.

More of this! Lots more! Here.

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

image

Just because schoooool’s out for the summer doesn’t mean today isn’t a stellar day to hang in one of the best college towns in the U.S. of A. Here’s what to wear—and do—in Oxford. —erica

+ Charlotte Stone sandals, comfortable (and cool) enough to stand around at City Grocery's upstairs bar.

+ An Ace & Jig dress ready to laze around on the wraparound porch at 512 once the sun goes down.

+ A smiley bracelet from Bing Bang that will make you almost as happy as caramel cake from Honey Bee Bakery.

+ Sunglasses from Dusen Dusen that are big and bad enough for the brightest summer days.

+ A Jerome Dreyfuss bag big enough for a copy of Light in August.

Summer means barbecue, and barbecue means Lockhart, Texas. Here’s what to wear today in pit country. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

It’s getting to be that time of year when it’s hot everywhere. Even lovely, lovely CA wine country. Do you think a bottle of pinot noir would help cool you down? Yah, wishful thinking. —erica

Sunglasses from Raen: also useful for keeping hair off your sweaty, sweaty face.

K. Jacques  sandals, for exploring Fitch Mountain when the temp drops.

+ Earrings chill enough for everyday—but also down for a celebratory dinner at Spoonbar—c/o t.kahres.
