Weekend in the Hamptons: Activities
As I mentioned in my previous post about my Hamptons looks, my good friend Amy let me come stay with her in the Hamptons for the weekend. I took so many photos around town, but these were some of my favorites.
When I first arrived in the tiny town of Bridgehampton, Amy drove me down to the beach. We knew we wouldn’t have time to spend there that weekend, so I got my pictures and got out.
It was a beautiful beach and there was basically no one there, but I definitely didn’t bring beach shoes…
I also got a photo of Amy’s cute little car!
We got to her home there which is of course extremely beautiful and well kept. I was shown to my room and was delighted to see that the decor was fitting for a modern Marie Antoinette.
She also had this great Elizabethan painting that I couldn’t help but think would have looked great in these sunglasses
Amy had some things to do around the house that night, so I went to plan out the next day. I found some thrift stores I wanted to check out, but one of them turned out to be non-existent, and the other wasn’t that great. So when I happened across this sign, I couldn’t help myself…
I hurried down the street, praying the sign wasn’t left over from another day, but was happy to find the sale still in its prime.
I also found a very cool guy selling his screenprinted work. He makes glow in the dark reversible t-shirts. He sells them on the streets of Soho, so keep an eye out! And check out his work here.
After a bit of looking around, I ended up buying a pair of Anne Klein pointy-toe black heels, a bronze choker with small white crystals, and a pink eyelet vintage table cloth. (The pink jewelry box with gold detailing I bought from a TJ Maxx I found down the street that day).
During my research the night before, I saw that there was a little restaurant called “The Candy Kitchen” that claimed to have the best ice cream. They have some secret recipe that is so secret that they have only exchanged it by word of mouth, and have never written it down.
Being a huge ice cream connessiuere, I had to see what all the talk was about, so I ordered a small cone of the Chocolate-Chocolate-Brownie. (Anyone that knows me, knows that I only ever order chocolate desserts).
At first it just tasted like ice cream, but I will admit I was pretty distracted taking photos. So once I finally set down my camera and became more entranced in my ice cream eating, I decided that there was definitely something different, but I honestly cannot tell you what. But it was very good.
And here is me posing with my ice cream like an idiot as people stare at me like I’m an idiot. Please enjoy.
As Amy and I were leaving Bridgehampton, she drove us to her favorite little antique store. I saw a lot of things that I wanted, but they were a bit out of my price range, so I just took photos of them.
What I really wanted more than anything were these precious pink poodles! I would have loved to add them to my 18th century pastel home decor!
And here is Amy checking out some of the silver housewares! She was so busy this weekend, I didn’t get a chance to take a photo with her!
So that was basically my weekend! It was so much fun, and I am looking forward to my next trip to the Hamptons!
And now I’m going to leave you with these other photos that I took around town:
