Packing Prep: Montauk

Packing Prep: Montauk

New York's frigid winter chill has called it quits for this year and the promise of brighter, warmer days taken its place. Spring is cool and all, but I already find myself itching for summer. No, the city's July humidity and stench are not things one should look forward to, but getting out of the city for a beach weekend? That's the stuff.

Whether it's Montauk, the Rockaways, the Cape... here are the pieces we're swooning over:

  • A casual dress and button-down to throw over a slightly sexy suit
  • Retro shades and a light-weight hat
  • Easy-to-remove sandals
  • Portable home-mixed cocktails
  • A notebook + a book
  • A printed clutch to pair with that dress if you go out
  • And a big, straw bag to throw it all in

All a girl needs for some quality, salty air chill time. And maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to shake that permeating impatient-for-what's-coming-next mindset and just be. At least for a weekend.
