living to the max

no matter what time of year it is, i always love escaping the city to the hamptons. although my favorite time to journey out east is during the fall (hello pumpkin patches!), summer comes in a close second. summer is significantly more bearable for me in the hamptons simply because it is noticeably cooler than nyc: that alone is worth the 2-5 hour drive!

i think it's obvious by looking at my pale skin that i avoid beaches and the sun at all costs, but there is one exception to this: early morning strolls on the beach. there is nothing quite like an empty beach and feeling the sun before the rays become too strong. the hamptons is my happy place where i am able to truly enjoy the little things.
