A Guide to the hamptons

July 29, 2016 - 148 Comments

I’m currently in Bali, but I was just in The Hamptons with Revolve and I couldn’t wait to share the photos with you! It was my second time there, so I thought this time I would make a weekend survival guide for when you  So without further ado, here is what to pack, where to chill, and where to eat in The Hamptons! Wearing a pretty Tularosa romper to relax by the pool.jetset_aimeeWhat To Pack:
I just made a YouTube video about what I packed and you can see it here! I packed 8 outfits, 6 pairs of shoes, and (probably too many) beauty products all in one carry-on bag! The trick is to roll your clothes so they all fit, but watch the video to see specifics! Since the flight from LA to NYC is long, but not too long, I dressed comfortably, but not too comfortably. I wore GRLFRND Jeans, an Anja Rubik for IRO t-shirt, Gucci espadrille flats, and a Jamé jacket in case it got chilly on the plane.

I mostly packed pretty flowy dresses and tops, rompers, and sandals since I had been to the Hamptons before and I knew it would be hot. Like, really hot. I also thought the floral patterns would look pretty against all the backdrops, which is something I talk about a little more in this sneak peek of my book!

Where To Chill:
Cooper’s Beach – Make sure you bring your own umbrella and some snacks! It gets pretty crowded on the weekends, but it’s nice and peaceful during the week.

Shelter Island – Not to be confused with Shutter Island (I promise no one is performing lobotomies here). Shelter Island is about 30 minutes from Southampton and you have to take a ferry to get there, but that was super exciting for me because I’d never been on one before! Once you’re there, find Sunset Beach, which is the prettiest place! It reminds me so much of when I went to Cinque Terre last year and they even have similar beach umbrellas.Aimee_song_of_style_hamptons_sunset_beach_cinque_terre_polaroids copyThe Pool – If the beach isn’t your thing, swimming pools are not hard to come by in The Hamptons. Since it’s SO hot and humid during the summer, you definitely want to be near a body of water.aimee_song_of_style_hamptons_ny_privacy_please_dressAimee_song_of_style_hamptons_privacy_please_dress_bikeI really love to ride my bike, but I never have time to do it when I’m in LA (and the roads are a little scary to ride on). So as soon as I saw that the house had some bikes outside, I decided that would be my primary mode of transportation for the weekend. Wearing a Privacy Please dress that laces up in the back. aimee_song_of_style_house_of_harlow_revolve_wrap_dressRiding around and sightseeing with Jacopo, wearing a House of Harlow x Revolve Wrap DressBack on the bike! This time to the beach, wearing Tularosa high-waisted denim shorts, a Kini bikini top, and Raye Slides.

Where To Eat:
Sunset Beach – Eat here when you go to Shelter Island! It’s a Hotel/Restaurant right next to the beach, with a european style decor that makes for some great photos. Oh, the food isn’t too bad either. Get the branzino, but be warned, it comes with the head attached! I promise it’s more yummy than scary though. If you just can’t, the chicken paillard looked like the next best thing.

Arbor Montauk – Super cute decor and delicious French/Italian style food. Definitely get french fries with whatever you order, and maybe one of each of the desserts because having to choose will just make you sad.
Icecream… anywhere.aimee_song_of_Style_hamptons_sunset_beachAimee_song_of_style_hamptons_tularosa_romperI might be allergic to dairy, but ice cream is good for me I promise. Gotta stay cool somehow, right? Wearing a Lovers + Friends detailed romper, Cornetti Sandals, and Ahlem sunnies. Aimee_song_of_style_hamptons_privacy_please_maxi_dressAt Arbor Montauk for our last dinner in this Privacy Please kimono maxi dress and Tibi block heel sandals (similar here)
