If you’ve been following the blog for awhile and seen pics of our cabin and Adirondack activities, you already know I’m a big fan of the great outdoors. In truth, I haven’t been camping since my early 20s. Like lots of lucky kids (especially city ones), I spent many happy weeks away at summer camp. And this coming Fall, I will be “glamping” with a group of girlfriends in airstream campers at Joshua Tree. But in the meantime, I’ve got the perfect getaway right in my Jersey City neighborhood!
I don’t know what the temps are doing where you live, but it’s sweltering here. So putting together a cute look that helps you stay cool is a priority. Let’s start with these shorts. I recently rediscovered “the new” Levi’s and could not resist adding these 501 Crazy Legs Shorts to my summer wardrobe. In a light white stonewash, their archival roots revive an iconic Summer of Love design — styled for now. And with a mid-rise waist, button fly and slightly loose fit, they epitomize relaxed sophistication. When ordering them, I also snapped up this cozy, slouchy polo-inspired sweatshirt. No need for it just yet, but it’s going to be in heavy rotation once we get some cooler weather.
This knit tank top keeps the vintage vibe going, and I’m already thinking about lots of other ways to wear it, including as a vest over a long-sleeved black or white shirt. My espadrilles, necklace and straw hat each add their own retro touch. Music festival anyone?
Last, but not least, this bracelet bag! Love, love, love it. And because you can wear it like a piece of jewelry, it’s party perfect — whether you’re hanging out by an airstream trailer or sipping bubbly at a wedding reception.
Speaking of airstream trailers, it’s so nice to have Camp Hamilton’s within a short walk from my apartment. And what comes with it! Delish food and bevies, great service, tented seating areas, picnic tables, and even a fire pit. Babies and dogs are always welcome, too. I’ll go glamping there any time!
