Everyone has a season, and mine is definitely summer. Tan lines, freckles, summer Fridays, ladies wearing open-toe shoes during the correct season, sunrises at the beach (YESSSS East Coast), dining a la fresco, beach reading (I’m talking to you, pile of New Yorkers and Atlantics), drinking cold Lambrusco outside on hot nights, all of it.
Part of the joy of summer is leaving the house and never knowing where the night will take you (a rooftop pool? Max Fish? Queens??). For the nights when that happens, here are a few supplies you need for the night of… and the morning after.
Summer, like camping, is truly all about the gear. So suit up and never never ever be caught without these essentials.
Kicking off summer is all about everyone looking their summer best, new adventures, old weekend houses, beach days you wish could last forever, and yes, possibly some very bad decisions.
The best part about being lucky enough to live in a place where we (still) have four seasons is the collective, forced nostalgia we all inherently experience when the seasons change — to remember what we were doing at this time last year, who we were with and who exactly we may have been. While in other geographically located cities that do not experience changes of season they break up the monotony with a slow-moving sidewalk to indulgent self-obsession (Yes, I’m talking to you L.A.). But just so you don’t feel left out, and so you know I love you, and not just like a red-headed stepchild, I have picked out some summer must-haves for you too:
For me, the best part of summer is, I think I mentioned, the beach, the beach and the beach. So go get out there and soak up the sun — there’s only one summer of 2019. Stop by New Stand for everything you’ll need to make your summer one of a kind.
