Summer Stripes in the City
It’s officially summer in the city! So I made up this outfit comprised of some of summer’s best: sandals, stripes and sun hats.
Everything I’m wearing today came from a single trip to one my favorite second-hand shops: Side Show in Hudson, New York. Ya gotta love one-stop shopping! (I got several other great things on this trip I can’t wait to wear.)
We can call these items one, two, three and four of my 100 items for summer.

I thought I’d eat an ice cream sandwich because it would look summery, but I think this one has been in our studio fridge since last summer. It was disgustingly freezer burned, but note I still took at least 3 bites before giving up. I’d love to say I was trying to stay true to my new no-quitting-in-the-middle, anti-perfectionism pledge. But in reality, I think the responsibility lies with my addiction to sugar.
Here’s what Side Show looks like from the outside, situated on Hudson’s packed-full-of-antique-goodness Warren Street.
And here’s Side Show’s inside, full of well priced yet super stylish second-hand clothes and shoes. Why yes, that is a ruffled, hot pink, one-piece jump suit. Thank you for asking!
