From Montauk Point

08 . 09 . 13

From Montaul Point I stand as on some mighty eagle’s beak,Eastward the sea absorbing, viewing,  (nothing but sea and sky,)The tossing waves, the foam, the ships in the distance,The wild unrest, the snowy, curling caps- that inbound urge and urge of waves,Seeking the shores forever. – Walt Whitman It’s been grey and rainy in New York […]

Across the street from Bloom is another great home store called MONC XIII. It opened last year to rave reviews but this was my first time visiting.  I especially loved the French linens and leather clad coolers.  The Hermes china wasn’t too shabby either.  Definitely check it out on your next visit to Sag Harbor.  […]

Bon Weekend

08 . 02 . 13

The best part of Sag Harbor is the car watching.  This cute Karmann Ghia was one of the best I saw and makes me want one immediately. Of course, that would mean this New Yorker would have to start driving again so maybe I should start practicing in preparation.  Bon weekend! Photos by Heather Clawson […]

While walking in Sag Harbor last Sunday, I ran into interior designer Kristen McGinnis, who told me that I had to stop into Bloom (no website).  I’ve been to Sag Harbor many times but have never been to Bloom which I realize now was a huge shame.  Not only does it have the chicest exterior […]

Fab Finds for Summer

07 . 30 . 13

When Fab asked me to choose some of my favorite things for summer, I knew this fun photo of Audrey Hepburn and her then husband Mel Ferrer would be my jumping off point.  I love how happy they look sitting outside enjoying a meal.  There is nothing that says summer like red checkered tablecloths and […]

I’m still recovering from my fun weekend in the Hamptons and have a lot of photos still to edit.  Until those are ready, I’m leaving you with this beautiful home in Bridgehampton, New York designed by Vicente Wolf. Nothing says the beach like blue and white but what I really love is the interesting art […]

Bon Weekend

07 . 26 . 13

You know you’re almost in the Hamptons when you pass the Stargazer sculpture above.  Depending on cell service, which is always spotty out East, I’ll be posting pics this weekend on Instagram at @habituallychic. Until then, here are some photos from a few of my recent trips to the Hamptons.   Bon weekend!

I’m packing my bag and getting ready for a weekend getaway in the Hamptons.  I always feel bad that the Hamptons gets such a bad rap. Granted the traffic is hideous and the party scene can be is a bit ridiculous but it’s the closest place we harried New Yorkers have to unwind.  No wonder […]

The absolutely pinch me moment on Friday was being invited to Aerin Lauder‘s house in the Hamptons for lunch and an afternoon of beauty treatments and other activities.  As long time readers will know, I’ve posted photos of the house before (you can see them here) so it was an absolute treat to be able to […]

There have been a lot of amazing opportunities that have come about because of my blog but Friday’s trip to Southampton to spend the day with Aerin Lauder takes the cake. A group of ten editors and bloggers left New York early and headed out east where our first stop was the AERIN Southampton store. […]

Hat Attack

05 . 26 . 13

The sun is finally out after what seemed like a week of rain.  That means you might want to pull out a hat except that the gale force winds would probably blow it off your head.  Maybe better to display your hats on the wall or in the entry.  Nothing says summer like a good […]

It’s been exciting to see the progress of Serena & Lily from when I was first introduced to them in 2010.  It was even more inspiring to hear founders Lily Kanter and Serena Dugan talk about the really early days when they just made crib bedding while standing in their first retail store in the […]

AERIN Southampton

05 . 22 . 13

The Hamptons are always chic but this summer they are definitely getting a little more chic.  Today I was out in Wainscott for a preview of the new Serena & Lily store, photos to come tomorrow, and here is a peek into Aerin Lauder’s new Southampton store.  Both are opening on Saturday, May 25th and […]

I remember speaking with someone last year about Aerin Lauder‘s line for Lee Jofa and today I saw the final amazing result.  It makes me wish I worked on more design projects because I could scheme them, along with her carpets and home accessories a million different ways from Sunday.  The fabric designs also grace […]

I had to go to multiple stores yesterday to find a copy of the Wall Street Journal with the December WSJ Magazine insert.  If you missed it yesterday, you can luckily read all the stories online.  You should definitely read All the Pretty Houses about designer Daniel Romualdez and his gorgeous homes seen here and […]

It was fun watching the photo shoot with Nacho Figueras for Lifestyle Mirror and even more fun seeing which shots made the final cut.  It also never occurred to me that photographer Candy Kennedy (that’s her photo above) would shoot him in black and white.  It was a grey day in the Hamptons so it […]

Two weeks ago, I was asked by Lifestyle Mirror magazine if I would like to come along on a cover shoot to the Hamptons.  The best part was that it was for polo player Nacho Figueras. The morning of the shoot, I boarded a van with the crew of eight for the drive out to […]
