snack packs x fanny packs

Can I get some beckaroos anyone? The s’mores n’ chill, please? I’d really love them to go with my fanny pack, thanks…

In case you haven’t heard, snack packs & fanny packs are having a simultaneous yet related moment in food and fashion. Both kinds of packs are throwbacks to the 90s decade, when Dunkaroos were the favorite snack in every kid’s lunchbox and fanny packs were Tommy Hilfiger’s go-to sporty-chic item.

In the food scene, Becky’s Bites NYC is making snack-packs trendy all over again by offering a range of chip-and-dip pairings in both sweet and savory flavors. Their most well-known snack-pack is their take on dunkaroos called “beckaroos”. Buzzfeed just posted about these this week in their “31 Most Instagrammable Desserts in NYC” post. An image of the dank-a-roos is below.

Run by Rebecca and Richard Rosenthal (also my beloved siblings!), Becky’s Bites NYC is the place to go if you want a hangout spot with throwback vibe and a delicious and instagrammable dessert. Check them out here. When you’re craving some Beckaroos you can get them delivered right to you on Seamless! AMAZING, I know.

In the fashion scene, fanny packs are all the rave as well, except now in addition to being worn around the waist they are also being worn around the chest like a tightly hoisted messenger bag. Brands such as Supreme, Herschel, Gucci and others are selling their fanny pack stocks like crazy. Pics from fashion week are below and a link to buy if you want to go hands-free! I know I do.

There is something to be said about snack packs and fanny packs being sold at the same time. From a broader perspective, this means that the lifestyle trend happening right now is to literally throw people back into their childhoods. By enabling consumers to eat and dress in playful and colorful ways, they can reclaim their youth and let go a little from the responsibilities of the adult world.

I am imagining my outfit for my next adventure to Becky’s Bites – I think I’ll wear a sweat-suit and get myself a fanny pack to wear over it.

Now go splurge on some 90s treats, please!

Today, I’m feelin’ tumeric&spicy. I had a delicious healthful lunch from Bluestone Lane (pictured below) and imagined this outfit the moment I bit into my toast. The sweet potato hummus mixture topped with tumeric, pepper flakes, salt and olive oil created an explosion in my mouth and mind. The spicy flavors lingering on my tongue made me crave something fuzzy to touch. I instantly thought of this faux fur pomegranate jacket from Sézane I spotted recently online. I’m obsessed. To dress down the jacket for an everyday look, I’d pair the jacket with these throwback platform vans that I’ve had my eye on for weeks. The sneaks just cut through the greaseeee.
