Nolita Diaries: Suddenly Summertime

Planet Botkier April 27, 2011

Summertime seems to have suddenly arrived in Nolita and we don’t think there are enough words to describe how thrilled we are!

Finally, we can do without the layers, embrace the florals, put to use those sandals we just picked up last week hoping that we could have used them then (though the rain seemed to have had other plans!) and get back to wearing anything but BLACK!

A Summertime Must-Have that we love: the crossbody!

Without all the extra things one needs to stay warm and the fact that when it’s hot the last thing you really want to do is carry more than what you actually need, it’s the perfect bag.

The Lobos crossbody in Natural Sunburst is a keeper… more of a medium-sized bag than small, it’s literally the perfect bag for those of you who are just stepping out of the realm of “big bags only”.

We love the soft and supple leather, almost nude though it has a hint of “something else”. (Not your average neautral!) Oh and lets not forget the chain detailing which adds a touch of “downtown” to this everyday boho chic style!

With the perfect bag, you’ll be ready for the perfect day of strolling through Nolita!

Some of our favorite neighborhood spots to hit during the Summer:

The Prince Street Market – Between Mott and Mulberry Street – we love scouring the jewelry stalls here by local designers such as Astrid Schumacher!

The Little Cupcake Bakeshop – On the corner of Prince and Mott Street – They have the perfect iced-coffee to keep you going!

Coclico – On Mott Street between Prince and Houston – One of the best boutiques in the neighborhood – their assortment of summer dresses  is kind of crazy, which is why we love them!

Bit & Piece – On Mott Street between Prince and Houston – On a budget but still wanna dress to the nines? Stop by Bit and Piece for everything from your everyday basics to the perfect bikini!

Cafe Habana – On the corner of Elizabeth and Prince – One of the best Mexican restaurants in New York, which also happens to be right around the corner from us. We’re addicted to their corn and the fish sandwich, so good!  Dine any time though we recommend avoiding brunch hours during the weekend, unless you don’t mind a long wait.

There’s so much to discover in Nolita – we’ll be updating this list and sharing more of our favorite Summer Must-Haves soon.

Shop online or stop by our Nolita boutique today for your very own Lobos crossbody… and share with us what you love to do come Sunshine & Summertime!
