A Hamptons Inspired Outfit

May 29, 2015

Like many women, I have this obsession with The Hamptons in New York.

If you’re unfamiliar with this magical place, The Hamptons are a group of villages and hamlets in the towns of Southampton and East Hampton, which form the South Fork of Long Island, New York. The Hamptons form a popular seaside resort, one of the historical summer colonies of the American Northeast. The area features some of the most expensive residential properties in the US; additionally, there is a very particular clothing style associated with The Hamptons — a very beachy, nautical type of look.

I’m not exactly sure what the draw is, but I’m hooked; I must go there.

And since I must go there, I’m dressing for the occasion! I feel like this outfit I’m sharing with you today would be a perfect for a casual day at The Hamptons. I love this blazer because it is so light and airy, but still such a statement. It really is the perfect summer blazer and will no doubt become one of my summer go-to pieces!

I played around with mixing neutrals when putting this outfit together, and while I loved the overall look, I thought it needed that extra something to really tie it all together. To achieve the complete look, I added my beach-scene clutch from Madewell. That clutch is a dream. I am infatuated with it.

Also, about my hair: I decided to try out a hairstyle that has become quite trendy recently. The half-up-half-down bun truly is my new favorite. It took me a few weeks to get used to but overall I like the convenience that it brings. It keeps my hair out of my face, which is perfect for the summer!
