The Cool Girl Travel Guide: What to do in the Hamptons

There’s a taboo rule amongst NYC natives who plan on spending some time out east for the summer- befriend somebody that has a house out in the Hamptons. Luckily, I can cross that off of my list. A couple of my close friends and I headed out east for the weekend and spent quality time sipping local wine, eating great food, and relaxing. Since there is so much to do, I put together a quintessential itinerary for your next chic Hamptons/Montauk retreat.

WHERE TO STAY:

The Maidstone Hotel

Swanky, scandi-style boutique hotel right in the heart of the Hamptons.

207 Main St, East Hampton, New York

The Chequit

Offering a sun terrace and views of the sea, it’s no wonder this boutique Inn was rated among the top luxury hotels in New York according to U.S. News & World Report.

23 Grand Ave, Shelter Island Heights, New York

WHERE TO EAT:

Wölffer Kitchen Sag Harbor

I made sure I was able to get reservations here because it definitely lives up to the hype. The menu is contemporary American with a fresh and healthy “rosé-inspired” cuisine. Make sure to get the mushroom truffle flatbread and the lobster salad wrap- both to die for.

29 Main St, Sag Harbor, New York

Maison Vivienne

A new French restaurant created by Michelin Star Executive Chef Wolfgang Ban is about to be your new favorite date night. The modern black and white interior features cathetral ceilings and del fresco dining. Order the roasted heritage chicken for 2, carved table-side.

Wölffer Estate Vineyards

Gorgeous setting resembling a classic Italian style villa. Enjoy a great atmosphere and wine tasting on the patio that overlooks the vineyard. Make sure to order the “summer in a bottle” rosé.

139 Sagg Rd, Sagaponack, New York

Best Social Scene

The Surf Lodge

Best boozy brunch – need I say more?

183 Edgemere St, Montauk, New York

Gurney’s

Definitely the go-to summer spot if you’re looking for a sophisticated day party.

We definitely did not just come here for the insta pictures – or did we?

  • Congratulations svets🍾you really did find love in a hopeless place😏 @polinnaaa http://liketk.it/2Crih #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • I feel like brightening up my room for summer with these fun pillows from @shophesby 🌱
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s the cutest little boho boutique and they’re having a sale today! ⫸⫸ use code “EXTRA” for 20% off your order. I also linked on my blog some of my favorite mix-and-match throw pillows that are super trendy right now. Mudcloth and leather are the buzzwords this year and I’m not mad about it😋
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But on another note, can’t decide if I want to keep the color scheme crisp white or if I should add pops or color to my bedroom. HELP!
  • Sunshine on my mind🌞 these glasses are Karen Walker dupes and they were under $12🤭 I have the real ones in black and you can’t tell the difference- they’re a must-have! linked them here for you guys http://liketk.it/2C7tM #liketkit #ltkunder50 @liketoknow.it
  • .. I’m where I’m supposed to be, promise you’ll stay with me❤️ @noraenpure
  • How’s this for a statement piece? Convincing Pasquale to let me get an olive tree for the living room! 🤞🏼 @em_henderson
  • I can just picture it now, Sunday morning breakfast at this big beautiful table with our 7 kids running down the stairs🤣 Pasquale and I can’t wait to have a big family!

Is anyone else as obsessed with wood tones as I am?! It seriously never gets old

On another note, you’ll be seeing this chandelier again real soon because I just finished up @kristen_karalis apartment & it is to dieee for🌿🤩 This was my first (and probably favorite) interior project. Even though she resisted some ideas at first she trusted me with my vision and let me run with it & lets just say she’s officially the #hyggehome queen. I’ll be blogging the big reveal in early June!
  • Happy Mother’s day and Sunday friends. In case you need to be reminded, you are enough and you are appreciated! What a beautiful time to be a woman. Don’t underestimate yourself, ever. You are stronger, bolder, smarter and more capable than you may realize. Cheers to females uplifting and inspiring others, the world is a better place because of you.

Sooo I crossed off 2 major items on my list and it feels like a boulder has been lifted off of my shoulders. Office makeover complete✔️and wedding venue locked down✔️ (I am so over the moon to reveal the details on this >> It’s like the boho gods curated THE most perfect location I didn’t even know existed🧚🏼‍♀️) and what perfect timing too, I was about to throw in the towel out of frustration. It seems like every venue is an over-priced catering hall with the same factory style wedding. Can’t wait to share the planning with you guys!

OH and how fun is my office chair?! I wasn’t sure about it at first but I’m obsessssed. I’ll be sharing all of the details on my blog, I didn’t get a chance to post last night but it should be up by Monday🌛🌜
  • It’s OFFICE REVEAL day! I’m so happy I could cry. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the room, my zen little nook🌱
▫️
When designing this space it was important for me to have a creative corner where I can think/read/write sans distraction. I’ve been finding it hard lately to be alone in my own thoughts because of all the stimulation and instant gratification we have right at our fingertips. Gone are the days we’re forced to stare at a wall when we’re bored🤣
▫️
My goal is to implement more time to think completely unplugged and unfiltered with just a notebook and a pen - and maybe some hot lemon water. Just like the gym, client meetings and other non-negotiables, I’m challenging myself to block out 1 hour once a week to just think. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨
Anyone have any tips/advice for meditating?
