One of the best things about summer in NYC is the sea of ice cream trucks popping up everywhere around the blocks, serving up the perfectly swirled soft served ice cream you’ll ever find. No need to sprint out the door at the sound of that joyful ice cream tune, only to stare at the truck cruising by and disappearing around the corner. In New York, these super adorable, eye-catching sweets homes will greet you at every turn. They’re so cute that sometimes you can’t help but wonder if you could just make one your own and take it wherever you go…wait, maybe you can do just that! How about an ice cream truck handbag? Sound sweet?
Cherry, sweet cream, mint chip, Americano…what’s your flavor of the month? When I first saw this adorable Kate Spade New York ice cream truck bag at the spring/summer 2016 NYFW, I knew I had to have it. The mint green exterior is lined with 14k light gold and crystal embellishments, sparking all the way and putting you right into that playful summer mood. Inside the spacious, pink lined pocket, you can stash your phone, cards, keys, lipsticks and all your other precious sweet treats. Wear it either as a crossbody shoulder bag or carry it as a clutch. Either way, it’s guaranteed to attract lots of attention. Got the scoop?
I cruised around town with my ice cream truck in a very simple-looking, white cotton swing dress and a white straw hat, paired with some woven wrapped wedge sandals. The subtle, intricate flower details and the swing silhouette really made it the perfect white summer dress.
I ended the night with my flavor of the month, cherry, before the ice cream guys drove the big truck away. I’ll miss you Mr. Mint…until tomorrow, when I’ll be back for a vanilla scoop. For now, I’m happy to take the little one home!
