My Summer Vacation

Every summer we rent a home in Amagansett for a couple of weeks. My kids bring their best friends and we spend our summer with traditions that we started 23 years ago, when my husband and I first met out in the Hamptons!

We start our days at Amber Waves Farms for coffee and muffins… this farm stand has had many owners but the vibe is always home grown, super chic and very yummy.

Our days are mostly spent at the beach in Amagansett, Atlantic Ave beach


But sometimes we go to our favorite, The CLAM BAR for lobster rolls


And sometimes we just eat on the beach.

We shop around all the different towns but I especially love the sophisticated rustic vibe of Amagansett and Sag Harbor. I find such inspiration for my shop from shops that I love and respect, Henry Lehr, Jacks Coffee, Rube, Love Adorned, Communitie Marfa and Gansett Lane.

My kids are growing up so quickly. My son Will is going off to college this August and so this vacation was very bitter sweat.

My baseball hat, always on someones head- we call it the communal hat! As seen on Ali, until Will came and swiped it off her head and ran into the ocean with it just to annoy her!

She ran after him and I pinched myself that this is a moment in time that I don’t ever want to end.
