We’ve had quite a bit of rain this season, so when a sunny day hits we’ve got to be packed and ready to go for outdoor reveling.
Hats and sunnies are, of course, top of mind. Check out Coolibar sunhats (coolibar.com). All of them are guaranteed to have a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) of at least 50, which will never wash out or fade, even in salt and chlorinated water. They use a proprietary technology that embeds all their fabrics with sun protective sunscreen ingredients, and they’re the first company to receive The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for sun hats. As an added bonus, they’ll pair perfectly with the newly launched Soludos x Malhia Kent capsule collection shoes available at Tenet (91 Main Street, Southampton).
For a something a little less sports and a little more fashion-forward, clothing boutique Stitch (22 Nugent Street, Southampton), has launched a new millinery line. All hats are designed in-house specifically for Stitch. Prices start at $240.
It wouldn’t be an East End weekend without some wellness thrown into the mix. To that end, Juice Press has just launched four new bottled smoothies exclusively at both their Southampton and Bridgehampton locations. Among them is Trophy Wife, a fittingly low calorie (and totally delicious!) mix of coconut water, filtered water, blueberry, acai, kale, spinach, sprouted almond and l. bulgaricus (probiotic).
On the sunglasses front, Dick’s Cottons (dickscottons.com) is a rarity—the brand stocks shades that are both affordable and stylish, meaning you’ll have more bucks to put toward that steak you’re spending your Saturday night grilling.
Also on deck is Rumble Supershake (drinkrumble.com), which is being hailed as the cure-all after a few days of too much drinking and pizza. The shake not only provides ample amounts of protein, but a healthy dose of superfood ingredients like omega 3s, healthy fats, antioxidants, natural sweeteners and 20g of protein. It’s an easy way to start your day off on the right foot, and a perfect appetizer for your morning SoulCycle class. (Drink it ice cold, and it actually tastes almost like a milkshake).
When it comes to energy drinks, go for new East End favorite, Älsa (alsaenergy.com). The energy drink delivers a healthy, steady lift without a jolt or crash. Available in single-dose powder packets that can be tossed into a purse or pocket and dissolve instantly in 16 oz. of water. Try it in one of three flavors—dragon fruit, pomegranate blueberry and three citrus. It’s naturally sweetened with fructose and stevia extract and has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and just 30 calories.
You can, of course, always opt to play it safe with good old coffee and pops. But don’t go for the plain. Prepare to leave your guests in awe thanks to Zoku’s Iced Coffee and Pop Maker, two innovative contraptions that will make a cold Americano or an iced pop in a matter of minutes (Williams-Sonoma, Bridgehampton Commons)—and fancy-looking ones at that.
Cap things off by showing your tips a little love with Trust Fund Beauty’s newly launched Hamptons nail polish collection (trustfundbeauty.com). Not only do their shades, which retail for $15 each, have staying power, they come in a range of finishes and in a mix of classic and bold shades. The biggest draw however are their cheeky names, which include “Got Yacht?,” “I’m Kind Of A Big Deal,” and “Champagne Problems.”
On the event front, on July 19, from 1 to 3 p.m., meet Stacy Bass at a signing for her new book Gardens at First Light (Serena & Lily Beach Market, 332 Montauk Highway, Wainscott). Then, late night, head to the East End’s newest hip dining spot, Disco Fries (17 South Edison Street, Montauk). The take-out window is open midnight to 3 a.m. and their mouthwatering lineup includes the namesake Disco Fries ($12) topped with braised short ribs, cotija cheese, and brown gravy.
Accent your home with new décor from Unlimited Earth Care. Newly available showroom items include Glossy Dice ($375), a handmade item from the Netherlands that doubles as a stool and coffee table, and LED Monkey Lamps ($250–$300). These items are available at the Unlimited Earth Care Concept Store in Bridgehampton (2249 Scuttle Hole Road). For more info, visit unlimitedearthcare.com
