{Style} Holiday Weekend in the Hamptons

Have you ever spent the 4th of July in the Hamptons? If not, how would you envision your Hamptons-style holiday weekend? My travel experiences influence my creativity & help define who I am & what I love.

The bustling of NYC rests quietly as the 4th of July weekend quickly approaches. The city-dwellers eagerly grab their beachwear & cram onto trains, heading for the peacefulness of the Hamptons. This I know, because I’ve experienced it.

What do I love about the Hamptons? Luxury & simplicity go hand in hand. Ina Garten of Barefoot Contessa is a shining example of Hampton relaxation. A white tablecloth never looked so good. Décor is beautifully understated. Fresh, locally grown food takes center stage.

If you are staying put for the holiday weekend, then bring the Hamptons to you. Be inspired!
