Summer has officially started! And last Thursday my friend Laurie and I got a jump start on summer and we headed out to the Hamptons. We had Laurie’s two dogs with us and everywhere we went people stopped to pet or admire Odie and Merlin. The Hamptons is an uber dog friendly place and it is also quite welcoming. Everyone was so nice and in a good mood. I can see why this is such an in-demand getaway for cranky Manhattanites.

The day started out warm and sunny so I reached for this lighter then air lace capped sleeve top from Shein. My regular followers have probably seen the one shoulder ruffle top and the palm leaf maxi dress looks I wore in this post and this post. Both of which are also from Shein.

It was nice to be out and about after spending so much time in doors in front of a computer. I did not get to Florida this year so it was much needed, truly…

I paired it with these wedgie straight cut jeans from Levis. I got these in Soho when I took my French nephew shopping who was visiting from Paris. I heard about them on Meghan Elby’s You Tube channel and I knew I had to have them. The Gucci inspired belt is from Free People and much less expensive.

The bag which goes perfectly with the top is from Rebecca Minkoff and the Pineapple denim mules which I picked up last summer are from Zara. The sunnies I believe are H&M.

We had great time out east and I did not return home until after ten in the evening. It was nice to be out and about after spending so much time in doors in front of a computer. I did not get to Florida this year so it was much needed. Hamptons season officially started on Friday so it was nice to beat the crowds. What is your go to getaway in the sizzling months of summer?

    What a gorgeous top! The ultra feminine lace detail and soft pink color contrast so well with your jeans. Yes it is so good to be out now that the weather is nice. At times it felt like winter was never going to end.

    It’s so good to see an outfit post from you, Allie and the top looks lovely! That belt is gorgeous and while I like the Gucci belt, I am not a fan of the price so this would be perfect for me.

    Love the pineapple embellished pumps. I also adore your belt from Zara. This is a fabulous Hamptons look. I’m so glad you got here before the deluge of rain. I agree about the overall good mood of the Hamptons but sometimes the cranky Manhattanites just come to the Hamptons and stay cranky !
    Great styling and beautiful graphics.

    The lace top is so gorgeous! Actually the whole outfit is so chic and effortlessly stylish! Love the pineapple sequined detail on your sandals, it’s just too cute!
    Hope you are having a fantastic start to this week! 🙂

    I am definitely a fan of that top- the sleeves are the perfect amount of lace!

    The top is really pretty, but your shoes are stealing the show! I should have bought those pumps as well when I had the chance. Have a lovely day. xx

    Your pink Floral Lace Cap Sleeve Blouse from SheIn looks very pretty, and complements the blue colour of your Levis wedgie straight jeans beautifully.
    There are a lot of lovely spots near the water on the East End of Long Island, and now that “the season” is here almost all everything is open. Enjoy those Hamptons getaways!

    Shein has so many beautiful pieces and always on the trend! Love so much 🙂
