Lampin’ in the Hamptons! I’ve mentioned it in previous posts, but the Lampton Hoody is an exclusive staple at New York and East Hampton store, Blue&Cream. The sweatshirt was created by the owner, Jeff, and his wife, Sam. In Sam’s words:
“Lamptons” was a word all of our friends used growing up in NYC. Instead of The Hamptons we all would just say “We’re going to The Lamptons, or The Lamps” meaning we were going to chill out, relax or “lamp” in The Hamptons. Jay Z even says “Lampin in The Hamptons” in the lyrics for his song “Jigga that Nigga”. We decided to put the phrase on a sweatshirt for fun about 5 years ago and it just took off. It is our #1 best selling item. Many of our clients collect all the different colors and each season we come out with different colors and designs.
The Lamptons hoody has been spotted on numerous celebrities like television star and author Lauren Conrad and ex housewife and author Kelly Bensimon.
The unisex sweatshirt comes in a bunch of fun summer colors like yellow, purple, turquoise, and peach. It’s the perfect comfy piece to throw in your suitcase for when it’s cooler out or it’s a chic, but comfortable look to travel in.
It looks super cute with cutoff shorts, or over a slim fitted denim. The Lamptons Hoody is a summer essential, so make sure to snatch one up on Memorial Day Weekend, xo!
