Has winter finally left? As we inch towards Memorial Day weekend, I am lining up my plans for the months to come. I had a crappy winter, so my resolution is to enjoy summer in my city in style.
I am looking forward to bunch of nights out with my girls. The first one is courtesy of Smirnoff Sorbet next week. I can’t imagine a better way to expose my toes in summer appropriate footwear than a pedicure and massage. New York City has become an expert at offering up combo spa/lounge/nightlife destinations for the woman who wants the full package and has no time… TenOverTen is the one I’ll be checking out next week. I’ll let you know how it measures up!
I plan on chic weekends by the beach. I have a few dates already set to head east to the end of Long Island. I start by shopping for pretty things along Main Street in East Hampton. Catherine Malandrino, Tory Burch and Calypso are my go-to shops for colorful style. My go-to lunch stops are Levain bakery and the Seafood shop in Wainscott. I end the day curling up with Hubby and a bottle of wine on a quite beach in Amagansett to watch the sunset.
In between weekends, there are of course the warm days in between. Luckily, New York keeps the staycation vibe going with tons of free concerts, movies and cultural events. Bryant Park is host to much of the fashion crowd with their film series on Monday nights. It has become one big gourmet picnic for my colleagues and me over the years.
If you need to chill, there are fashion related exhibits in the air conditioned buildings of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (check out Punk: Chaos to Couture) and the Museum at FIT (RetroSpective opens next Wednesday). Don’t forget museum parties… The MOMA opens late on Thursdays with live music starting July, The Met has a martini bar on their rooftop garden and the Rubin Museum turns into the K2 lounge with tapas, culture and cocktails on Friday nights.
