Wedding Cargos and Seinfeld Blazers
after school weekend edition
Hi friends! Welcome back to After School ✨weekend edition✨, an extra long and extra opinionated youth culture digest for paid subscribers.
I’m home in Brooklyn after nearly two weeks in the midwest. The NYC to Missouri drive is one of the best, especially when you can take your sweet time and make pit stops for fountain sodas and good night’s sleeps along the way. Brief stays in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Columbus were all really excellent, but the surprise favorite was Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Harrisburg Beach Club could pass for Saint Tropez if you squint, and it’s just three and a half hours from the city.
It’s a cement beach, which isn’t quite the same as gorgeous white sand, but you can skip the flight cancellations and lost luggage.
Today we’re talking about:
Cool girls are wearing Jurassic Park shorts
And bridal cargo pants
And cowboy boots. Still. (Or again.)
Malls are back?
The midwest is chic now??
Sephora-branded laudromats when???
A highly anticipated Japanese chain is coming to SoHo
TJ Maxx’s favorite makeup brand is coming to Williamsburg
Plus, everything I’m buying, reading, and loving.
