A few weekends ago, Kat and I headed up to Montauk for a one-night getaway from the city in the beautifully renovated Gurney's Montauk Resort (... and Seawater Spa, which neither of us took advantage of, but will be on the immediate to-do list upon our return later this summer). Of all places in the Hamptons, Montauk is my favorite: it's the furthest point East on Long Island, which gives it a sort of remote and perfectly desolate feel despite being a popular place for native NYers to escape to over summer weekends. Gurney's is a boutique hotel, so it lacks the lavish lobbies and grand pools corporate resorts would boast -- exactly what you don't want for a weekend getaway. Instead, you arrive into a cozy lobby with a quaint, integrated little café; the most delicious restaurant-apart-of-a-hotel that I'd give 5 stars to in a heartbeat; gorgeous room patios with oceanfront views; and boardwalk steps away from a beautiful beach.
If you’re heading up to Montauk anytime this summer, stay at Gurney’s — you’ll love it. Be sure to get a room in the newly renovated part with a patio overlooking the beach (you may have gotten an early preview on Instagram here and here); have a late lunch at the The Beach Club (fish tacos, of course), grab a pre-dinner rosé by the bonfire, chow down at Scarpetta Beach (appetizer, pasta, entree, dessert… and don’t skip a course!), then finish off your night at the famed Surf Lodge — a cozy bed will be waiting for your return.

One Last White Outfit Before Labor Day
By Freddy Rodriguez
In the states we all use Labor Day as a date for many things (back to school, end of summer, extended last weekend to party in Hamptons), but in fashion it’s declaring the last day to wear white jeans or in my case shorts.
