With The Hamptons only a hop, skip, and a jump away, it’s no wonder why this East Coast paradise is New Yorkers’ most frequented weekend destination. From restaurants to shopping to beaches, here’s an insider’s guide of to-dos curated by Gwen and Lindsey!
WHAT TO PACK
The Hamptons is best done in casual, comfortable clothing – think long, flowing dresses, metallic sandals, raffia sunhats, and silk scarves. Not only is effortless dressing so of the moment, but it’ll take you from beach to lunch to shopping without calling for an outfit change! And don’t forget a reusable bag like The Laundress Shopper for runs to the farmer’s market or trips to the beach.
WHERE TO STAY
Gwen’s partial to Bridgehampton – she has a house in this village and it has all of The Hampton’s best within reach. The Bridgehampton Inn is super cute and has a great restaurant with the most delicious cocktails in town!
WHERE TO EAT
Dinner outside at Dockside in Sag Harbor is a MUST. It’s the best place to enjoy the sunset on the harbor. On Tuesday nights the community band plays outside!
WHERE TO SHOP
There is no shortage of shopping in The Hamptons! Lindsey’s friend recently opened Knockout Beauty Store in Bridgehampton that carries all of the beauty products that make insiders swoon including the Supracor Stimulite Honeycomb Bath Mitt. Other must see shops include The Styleliner by Joey Wolffer, Jenni Kayne Pop Up Shop, Aerin Lauder, and L’object. L’object is a client and friend of The Laundress so you can stock up on your favorite detergents and fabric care there!
WHAT TO DO
We’re all about lounging at Mecox Beach and visiting farmer’s markets (there’s a stand for every type of food you can think of). Gwen is a member of Quail Hill Farm – there’s nothing better than digging your own potatoes! Lindsey loves visiting Wolffer Winery for an evening of live music and wine.
