In Review: NYC & The Hamptons

Weekend in NYC Lenox Hill Hospital Designer Showhouse

Fourth of July in The Hamptons

Remember my trip to Cabo? One of the things I love the most about traveling is meeting new people from around the world. We certainly got lucky in Cabo and made fast friends that we instantly clicked with— only a stone’s throw away in NYC. When summer kicked off we decided it was high time to make the trek down (not once but twice) to spend quality time with our favorite New Yorkers. I was so happy to celebrate Fourth of July with them despite the tropical storm that decided to hit the beach all day Friday. We made up for it the rest of the weekend with lounging sessions by the pool, leisurely lunches, trampoline sessions, tennis matches, frisbee and football games, Fourth of July parties, golf cart rides and a little beach time.

All in all, I spent only 24 hours in NYC— just enough to go check out the Lenox Hill Hospital Designer Showhouse where I was blown away by Neal Beckstedt‘s rooms. I mostly stuck to tried and trusted places within my quick stop in NYC, but I was happy to discover Baker & Co in the West Village where I ordered an affogato worth writing home about. I preferred spending time outdoors to shopping, but I did manage to snag a few key summer items: my beloved metallic sandals, a seersucker skirt, scalloped leather shorts and a white silk and leather sleeveless shirt. Check out my favorite New York City and Hamptons addresses in the Directory. I’m going back to the Hamptons at the end of the month, so stay tuned for a full Hamptons guide!

Shop the Look: Mark D. Sikes’ Hollywood Hills Library

Mark D Sikes Library Veranda Magazine 2014

It’s no secret around here that blogger and virtual merchandiser Mark D. Sikes‘ Hollywood Hills home is a favorite of mine. So when I spotted it newly remodelled and decorated in the latest issue of Veranda, I just had to talk about it. My favorite upgrade? The library— and I swear it’s not just because Lilly the Frenchie looks so darn cute sitting on that comfortable daybed. The room just oozes a refined sense of ease and carefree comfort. The warm neutral tones and tented ceiling upholstered in a striped linen come together to envelop the room in a snug light-filled filter. I want to move right in!

Welcome July: Dog Days of Summer

Grey Barn Farm Martha's Vineyard, Architectural Digest, Hutker Architects, Summer Bucket List

As I write this, it’s about 150 degrees in my apartment and I won’t pretend I’m not working in my underwear while eating a fudgsicle (TMI?). Hi July—Summer’s here, and it’s a hot one! The media predicted above average heat this summer—I’m starting to think they were right. It’s a good thing I’m heading to the beach again in two days to cool off. In the meantime, I’m mentally beating the heat by preparing a short summer bucket list.

Part of the joys of summer is to simplify and slow down. I’ve already made the pact to enjoy summer to the fullest—I want to spend more time outside, less time working and spend more quality time with my family and friends. I want to try new things, push myself out of my comfort zone and unplug more often (says the girl who’s normally glued to her phone). I know a few people who will be happy about that last one! What’s on your summer bucket list? Here’s what’s on mine:

Take a two week vacation (aka work remotely from the beach)

Get this dress to stay cool on ridiculously hot days

Get really ridiculously good at tennis

Get at least a little better at golf

Attend NY NOW in August

Watch the sun rise

Read a book

Go sailing
