What To Do

  • When in The Hamptons I almost always rent a SUV as there is so much to see and do even if you ‘stay local’ – I love Cooper’s beach in Southampton, Sagg Main in Bridgehampton, and Flying Point beach in Watermill, especially at sunset…
  • Stroll around the local villages exploring boutiques like Blue One or Maison 24
  • Go wine (and cheese!) tasting at one of the local wineries such as Channing Daughters, Wolffer Estate or Duck Walk
  • Enjoy fresh, locally grown produce from any of the neighborhood farms or farm stands like Halsey or Round Swamp farms, and for a less healthy option Tate’s Bake Shop is a must do when passing through Southampton!
  • On cooler days I like to visit the local galleries and museums like the Parish Art Museum and the White Room Gallery
  • Experience unforgettable American holiday traditions of apple picking, pumpkin patches or even completing a corn maze – Milk Pail and Farview Farm are great fun for these activities!

Where To Eat

  • The breakfast included with your stay at White Fences Inn is a little slice of hearty heaven, and loaded with great local produce which will get you thinking ‘how much can we take back to the city’?
  • I first experienced Tutto Il Giorgno in The Hamptons many years ago and love it – both Southampton and Sag Harbor have amazing Italian food, cool ambience and great service for a date night, group or even just to relax at the bar
  • Pierre’s in Bridgehampton is perfect to enjoy a classic French-American brunch with a really fun scene
  • Sant Ambroesus in Southampton for a magnificent leisurely lunch in the coutyard, especially this fall as the weather has been warmer than usual
  • Almond in Briedgehampton is great casual dining and has a fun bar scene especially on Friday nights!
  • Boa Thai – having grown up in Australia and traveled to Thailand many times, I have been very spolit with Thai food, and this low key restaurant does not disappoint!  Don’t miss out on their lunch special either!

What To Pack

  • Visiting The Hamptons in the fall calls for lots of layers – don’t forget your knitwear and coats so you can fully enjoy the magical sunsets and cooler evenings under the stars!
  • Like the summer months, I still opt for a lot of red, white and blue options as well as nautical stripes and polka dot prints
  • I often have a lot of past season, classic items in my wardrobe that I love to bring out especially for stays in The Hamptons, however you can fill in any gaps with T By Alexander Wang tees, polos by Ralph Lauren, button up shirts from Madewell and classic jeans from J Brand
  • From my early retail days at General Pants Co. I have always been a sneaker girl, and if you have read any of my previous blogs then you will know I am currently crushing over Golden Goose so don’t forget your sneakers!
  • As it can get quite cool in the fall you must bring accessories that don’t just spice up your look but also keep you warm so I love to pack scarves, throws and cute hats always…

Where To Stay

  • I really enjoy exploring different areas of The Hamptons and this fall I was lucky enough to stay at White Fences Inn – Liz & Eric are such gorgeous hosts and this historic bed and breakfast has been beautifully refurbished wih stylish decor and finishes including your own personal wall mounted fire place and a bed that will make you never want to leave! However, the yummy breakfast will get you going and the location is great for exploring the local villages and attractions.
  • Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton is pure luxury, has lovely food and a fun bar scene – this hotel is great for a romantic weeknd getaway and ‘staying in’…
  • If you are lucky enough to rent a mansion or yacht you should!
