she's picked some great spots to check out if you find yourself out that way. don't skip the lobster roll, yum!
i couldn't return home to new york this summer without taking a quick trip out east to one of the best spots on long island -- main street, westhampton. in many respects, the laid back and relaxed - yet glamorous - vibe that westhampton gives off reminds me a lot of malibu. whether it's for the day or the weekend, a trip to the beach is just what the doctor ordered.
i'll start my morning with a coffee and a pastry from the ever-busy beach bakery (and trust me it is well worth the wait) before heading to my all-time favorite clothing boutique, blue 1, where owners crystal and jarret carry such an incredible collection of east-coast-meets-west-coast attire it makes me feel right at home! main street is lined with amazing boutiques; it is hard not to stop at all of them. i recommend popping into mint, chic, farenheit 451, and gloria jewel. for lunch, i'll stop at the post stop cafe for a quick bite to eat (the turkey burger with cranberries is delicious). after lunch, i'll do some more browsing and find myself getting lost in katherine tess beach boutique -- a cool combination of foreign designers and unique accessories. before i know it, i'm at the end of the street where a hidden treasure, good westhampton sits. it has become a new favorite stop and featires an eclectic mix of just about everything from candles to candy and anything in between; this "modern general store" is just that. before heading home, i'll take a drive down dune road to grab a lobster roll at john scott's just in time for a beautiful sunset. if it's a monday night, you can't miss star blogg's lobster bake for the freshest seafood you could possible imagine. the thought of it alone makes my mouth water....until next summer!
