Nothing says weekend like this vegetable-dyed raffia hat ($42), knit by Abby Heijnen in Olivebridge, New York. No matter how many times you cram it in a bag, it keeps its shape.
Accessory-cum-pillow? These fluffy Dookie bracelets ($10 each) made by Brooklyn’s Nakimuli come in an array of graphic prints; their softness encourages impromptu naps on the train.
When things get too hot and schweaty, slip into a cotton kaleidoscopic-print tank dress ($44). The micro length and large keyhole back will help you stay cool — even at the West Fourth Street station.
You never know when you’re going to finish that novel, so it’s important to carry around a spare. We understand. Luckily you can stash your whole life in this roomy gray tote ($50) by NYC-based Navoh.
When the impulse to dash through a lawn sprinkler strikes, these F-Troupe jelly shoes ($40) are the footwear choice. The waterproof oxfords come in turquoise, hot pink, white, and black.
