The Hamptons


Just wanted to get at you all with some fun snapshots from East Hampton this past Memorial Day weekend. Not even the verging on sucky weather could stop us from going around town and taking in the spectacularly lush and green landscapes, charming colonial style homes and ocean views. The shingle style houses with their rustic weather-beaten appearance looked so inviting. I wanted to take a peak into every window. Only in books have I seen such pretty fenced off acres of land! The sweet life really does exist!

So much open space, rolling hills, and hidden dirt paths that lead you in and out of mystical feeling forests that you just want to get lost in for days. You can always be sure to find vibrant pops of colors around the town, from a sweet beach cruiser sitting by a tree and an old school town car chilling on the side of the road to the door of a cottage house that looks like it holds tons of warm baked goodies inside. I could easily imagine what the town looked liked centuries ago when the first English colonists settled here in the mid-1600s. East Hamptons was actually the very first English settlement in all of New York. Even back then, the Hamptons was sort of a playground for the wealthy. Not that anything has changed today. haha. I have never seen so many chinos, boat shoes, cable knits, polo tees and pastels in one place before. Nautical to the max. But I definitely was digging it. My crew and I sort of stuck out like a sore thumb in our mismatching tie dye prints, leather jackets and tattoos. It was quite funny seeing the stares when we first arrived into town and ate at a cute little restaurant on the main street of town. But all in all, I felt like I fit in perfectly with the natural state of things that made up the foundation of the town. Give me sea and blue skies and you know I'm all set.
