This weekend (despite being pretty sick with a summer plague of sorts) was just the thing. I forgot how much I love being out in the Hamptons. My friend Alex and I drove out on Friday morning. We had a yummy lunch at The Lobster Roll (famous from Showtime’s The Affair), laid in the sun a bit, and then went back to Montauk for dinner at The Crow’s Nest (my absolute favorite). On Saturday we spent the day at Hampton Racquet for her event with The Daily Front Row. Sun, rosé, and fun with friends… what’s better!? We drove home Saturday night to miss the traffic and I spent most of yesterday under a blanket reading this YA novel. So. Good. I’m so addicted that I went ahead and ordered the next two books from the trilogy. #nerd.
Anyway, clothes! I bought this dress over Memorial Day Weekend while out shopping with Kat. I was concerned that it would look a little bit too young. If you’ve been reading here for a long time then you know how much I love a good A-line dress… but I’ve been trying to go for pieces that are a bit more sophisticated. I’m in my thirties and I have a tendency to dress like a child. Still, I tried this on and just fell in love. To keep it from feeling too precious I paired it with an edgier bag + pair of heels. In the Fall, I’ll definitely be layering it under all my leather jackets.
