Spring Trend We Love: ROMPERS!

Like most of you, we here at The Nomad Truck, are beyond ready for Spring to be in full force. Spring means sunshine which means more cruisin’, and more time to rock one of our favorite trends this spring, the ever trusty, romper.

Who doesn’t love walking out the door after just throwing on one beautiful piece of clothing? What a piece of cake! We have two adorable rompers on our newly launched e-commerce site – so easy to shop you don’t even need to leave your home!

First, our Field of Dreams Jumpsuit: a black, pants jumpsuit with all over sunflower print, sexy criss-cross back and subtle v-neckine. At $58, this fun onesie is a must have for spring. Pair with gladiator sandals, a floppy straw hat, and a crossbody bag. Easy like Sunday mornin’!


If you’re looking for a romper for those even warmer days, you must check out our Spring Forward Romper. This charcoal romper with an all over floral print has an adorable ruffle trim along the shorts with a beautiful v-neckline and open slit back. Also coming in at $58, this romper is perfect for a date night or music festival. We especially love it with the Festival Fringe Vest tossed on top.



Last, this new cutie just landed from our recent LA buying trip. At $46 (on the truck now), this lil’ guy is a steal and is the perfect number for any super hot summer day. Wear it now with a tee under and denim jacket on top!


Come see us on the truck and make sure to check out our website, keep rompin’ beauties!

California Dreaming

Whew! What a crazy past few weeks of travel we’ve had! After our long trek home from Wilmington, NC (the finale of our road trip – more on this coming soon!), we switched gears and hopped on a plane to California to do some buying for Spring.

Ah, California. Land of sunshine, palm trees, and that coveted easy breezy lifestyle New Yorkers like us always secretly crave but can never commit to.  Now back and bundled at our frigid Brooklyn headquarters, a quick ode to The Mama’s and The Papas who said it right: “I’d be safe and warm if I was in LA”.

Anyway, while temperatures continue to dip and yet another snowstorm is brewing for the weekend, we’ve got sunny springtime in NYC on our minds. And while California sure possesses an appetizing flair, springtime in New York just can’t be beat.

So what are we forecasting once the weather forecast gets warmer? Florals, fringe, and flare that’s what. We picked up tons of floral shift dresses, fringe kimonos, and 70’s inspired flared tops and bottoms. Take a peek at our preview below, and be sure to stay tuned for truck stops in the next few weeks!

Headlights on: Fitzgerald Forbes

The newest addition to the Nomad designer lineup has arrived just in time for the holidays and is already flying off the shelves. Meet the husband and wife design team of Fitzgerald Forbes. Based in Santa Barbara, California, the lovely handmade baubles created by this duo are classic yet unique, natural yet modern. Read more to find out about what inspires these two, and visit the truck and pop up shop to snag the lovelies of their Cast Natural: Grain Collection.

When did you begin creating jewelry?
While I was studying Architecture at RISD, I had the desire to translate my design concepts into different mediums.  Jewelry and Metalsmithing offered an introductory studio that I registered for during my junior year.  It was a great experience that allowed me to create wearable, volumetric objects.  My work has evolved into a casting process, but is still directly influenced by my architecture background.

Where does your inspiration come from?
Architecture and Apparel Design have been the main sources of inspiration.  Between the two disciplines, there is a correlation with the act of construction and the focus on lines that inspires me and keep me moving in and out at different scales.  Traveling has also become an important point of inspiration.  Our Travel Inspiration Collection is an on-going series of the photographs that I take while we travel.  After looking at the photographs, it will be evident that I am drawn to three-dimensional patterns, shadows and abandoned landscapes to name a few.  In addition to the Travel Inspiration Collection, my tumblr also serves as a collection of found inspiration that I regularly add to.


Stack Rings in Bronze & Brass – $15

How has your process or style evolved over the years?
Process has always been something that I have approached with a meticulous, labor intensive mentality, often incorporating writing along with material investigation.  Through the years, my style has become more minimal and simplistic in form, but still carries a strong emphasis within the details.  The details add a complexity to the minimal forms that in turn adds a richness to the pieces.

Has any one single person been an influence on your brand? If so, who?
Our brand was developed as an outlet for us to express ourselves as designers.  Our designs are informed by materials and driven by process.  However, one of the most influential components to our work and our process has been traveling.  We spend a lot of time experiencing new places and meeting new people.  Traveling has helped us reflect on our goals and the message that we want to relay through our designs.

Is there anything else you want to include?
As a brand, we are intrigued by every aspect of living; where people live, what they surround themselves with and how they express themselves.  We are currently exploring other materials and processes at different scales.  This has been an exciting beginning and we are eager to continue moving forward.

December’s Obsession: VELVET

Tis the season to be bundlin’ up and lookin’ festive, and what better way than wearing the ever beautiful wintery staple, velvet. We are kind of dying over all the velvet we’ve got in this season. And you better come on board or to our pop-up quick before WE take all of our beautiful pieces off the racks to wear ourselves.

We’ve got a beautiful maroon colored skater-skirt, pictured below with our fabulous fringe kimono, at the amazing price of $45. Or, try our black Sugar Lips dress, with delicate lace details down the scoop back and deep-V in the front. This one is sexy and festive, and at $74, it could be THE dress of this Holiday season. We’ve got an adorable pair of black shorts, that will look amazing with a pair of detailed knit tights. They come with a pop of gold on the button detail on the waist, for just a hint of sparkle.  And lastly (not pictured) we have an amazing pair of black slacks at $82 that will keep you feeling cozy for sure, but looking ever sophisticated and fancy for work or a night out on the town.

This holiday season, velvet is where it’s at. And the Nomad Truck is the spot to grab some really yummy velvet goods.

Summer is on her way out (thought it’s been a good one, thanks girl!!) and we, here on the Nomad Truck are trading in crop tops for beautiful tribal print sweaters and cutoffs for pairs of fresh new skinny jeans. 

It’s always bittersweet to put away the white post labor day and have the feeling of SCHOOL STARTING AGAIN, but how about this year, we celebrate? We embrace fall! We get ready to bundle up in some beautiful knits and we welcome the changing leaves and chillier weather!

The amount of new sweaters that we are daily, putting out into the truck are gearing me up for the months ahead in a biiiig way. Ranging from all sorts of designs and colors, I can guarantee ya that they are all perfectly loungey, warm and cozy, just the way we like ‘em, am I right? This fall, I’m excited to get back into my standard military green jacket that I wear every fall, and figuring out new ways to make it interesting. One of the newest pieces on the truck, a simple straight forward army jacket from the front, has a sweet sweet surprise on the back! When you turn around you see an amazing knit back, with beautiful complimentary colors to the army green and sharp tribal geometric angles and shapes. It’s a brand new spin on the ever trusty military jacket and it is inspiring me to see how I can twist my everyday look upside down and add an element of surprise.

This fall, I am also on the hunt for the just most perfect scarf, my dream scarf: I’m looking for thick beautiful material with lots of length and width that you can wrap around yourself so many times you almost get lost in it. I think what I’m basically looking for is the dreamiest blanketscarf I can find, and I’m determined to find it. We do have an outrageous selection of scarves we are starting to put out on the Nomad Truck everyday (and to tell you the truth, I think my dream scarf is in the selection!! I’m just trying to not take the goods away before we can share ‘em with you guys!), so you must come check ‘em out and find your dream scarf for fall.


Two new cozy knits! (Left, $42, Right, $40)

No matter what you’re wearing or what you’re dreaming of wearing  this fall I hope you stay nice and warm and looking cozy, chic and beautiful. I hope you fall in love and fall into some new adventures, and hold onto the railing when you’re walking onto the Nomad Truck so you don’t fall down the stairs! Hope to see you on the truck, come and get cozy with us.
