A Weekend in Montauk

Montauk has always been one of my favorite places to stay in the Hamptons (remember this trip?) and this past weekend was just as great as it used to be!

From my frequent trips when I used to live in New York and lots of exploration last weekend, I have so many favorite spots so I figured I’d share them all on the blog in case anyone is planning a trip there soon! (I also added Montauk to my Travel Guide for easy reference in the future!)

LBD: Little Blue Dress

I’ve always been more of a navy blue vs. black fan when it comes to clothing. Especially during the summer, there’s nothing more chic than a versatile LBD — little blue dress.

A little navy dress is just as versatile as a little black dress… the styling options are truly endless! I wore this dress a few weeks ago in NYC with a pair of espadrille wedges and my trusty denim jacket. And I dressed it up in Chicago for a fancier summer soiree with light blue accessories and a pair of lace-up pumps!

Parson’s Chicken in Chicago

I finally made my way to Parson’s Chicken and Fish a few weeks ago and couldn’t have loved it more! The outdoor patio is incredible, the food was amazing, and the red and white striped umbrellas covering the patio are an Instagrammer’s paradise. It was the perfect backdrop for an Americana-inspired red, white, and blue outfit!

We ordered a few things to share, but I’m already anticipating my next trip so I can try a few more things on the menu! Light and healthy, not so much. But sometimes you just can’t say no to southern food!

Red, White, & Blue

With Fourth of July weekend creeping up on us, I figured I’d share another dose of Americana outfit inspiration! I’m typically one to wear red, white, and blue outfits all summer long, but the color combination is specifically appropriate over the holiday weekend for cookouts with friends, family BBQs, and fireworks.

I styled this blue and white gingham skirt for a more work-approrpiate setting a few weeks ago, but it’s been on repeat for the weekends, too. Tying a little knot in my tee shirts has been one of my favorite ways to spice up an ordinary look instead of simply tucking my tee into my skirts, shorts, or pants. It’s so nice not to worry about constantly re-tucking, too!
