It was such a treat to be in the Hamptons on a weekday.  There’s a completely different vibe that you get from being there on a Wednesday as compared to a Saturday.  It’s calmer, more casual, and less of a scene.  Talun and I headed to the ever popular Surf Lodge after a full day of shooting and enjoyed a bottle of rosé along with the breathtaking sunset.  I wore this easy, breezy blush maxi skirt from Banana Republic which I paired with this simple, silk top.  I had packed this little black jumpsuit to wear for the night, but decided to save it for a friend’s birthday dinner in the city.  It fits me like a glove (but I recommend sizing down.)  Banana Republic always has the best selection of updated classics – you can’t go wrong with this white off the shoulder dress (on major sale), this sexy lace silk slip dress, and these neutral sandals.  Shop my entire look below!

Special thanks to Banana Republic for sponsoring this post.

I’ve got 4th of July on my mind!  This little stripe bikini would look great with these denim cut offs.  Throw a white button down over it and you’ve got yourself a chic daytime beach/bbq look.  My dry brush is my best friend this week since I know I’ll be in a swimsuit in a few days!  If you’re not already dry brushing I highly recommend you start doing it.  You can read all about how to here (FYI it’s super easy.)  This is the ideal weekend bag (and it’s under $70.)  This shirtdress is perfect to travel in and I love the pattern on this dress.  I’ve also got my eye on this Missoni-esque bandeau bikini, this straw tote, these printed pants, and these suede lace up flats (splurge worthy!)

Helllloooooo summer!  It’s the perfect time of year to pack your bags and head out to The Hamptons.  I’ve had so much fun exploring different areas in The Hamptons over the years and wanted to share some of my favorite things to do.  PS if you’re heading to Paris or St. Barths anytime soon be sure to check out my “10 Things To Do in Paris” and “10 Things To Do in St. Barths” posts.  Enjoy your weekend!

1.  Have dinner at Crow’s Nest.
I put Crow’s Nest first for a reason!  I had one of the best meals of my entire life here.  The halibut is out of this world and so is the crab pappardelle.  

2. Bike ride to the Amagansett Farmer’s Market.
Head to Amagansett Square and pick up fresh fruit and veggies for the day.  Their homemade muffins are a perfect mid afternoon treat.

3. Watch the sunset at The Surf Lodge.
You can’t go to The Hamptons without visiting the iconic Surf Lodge.  The view is unbeatable!

4.  Go wine tasting at Wölffer Estate Vineyard.
Sip on rosé while taking in the stunning vineyard views.

5.  Enjoy cocktails by the fire pit at Gurney’s before dinner at Scarpetta.
Scarpetta is located inside Gurney’s so I love grabbing a pre dinner cocktail on their deck which boasts a cozy fire pit and oceanfront views.

6.  Have lunch at Navy Beach.
Sit directly on the beach and admire the water while you nosh on a fresh lobster roll.  The grilled artichoke is a must.

7. Go shopping in East Hampton and Southampton.
East Hampton boasts everything from Zimmerman, Eres and Ralph Lauren while Southampton has stores like Intermix, Aerin, and Calypso St. Barth.  Pop into antique and vintage stores along the way – there are so many hidden gems!

8.  Grab late night drinks at Ruschmeyer’s.
Ahhhh Ruschmeyer’s.  Brings back memories of my very first summer in the city.  Somehow it’s still just as fun as it was 5 years ago!

9. Pack a picnic and head to the beach.
I love Indian Wells beach in Amagansett or Cooper’s beach in Southampton.

10.  Stay at Gurney’s or The Montauk Beach House.
Gurney’s is a newly renovated hotel located right on the beach.  The Montauk Beach House is a charming, boutique hotel that has the cutest bikes (as seen here) for guests to use at their leisure.  I’ve stayed at both properties and had wonderful experiences.  For long term stays rent a house!
