Summertime in the Hamptons doesn’t have to be all about polo shirts and cable knit sweaters (although it can be if you like). Our family has been lucky to spend the summer here for seasonal work and we’ve had a blast exploring all of the towns and villages. I love the aesthetic of the Hamptons- country, beach and modern industrial all blended so tastefully. Straw hats, caftans in neutral tones and gladiator sandals tend to be the go-to outfits for the mamas. Montauk has a little more of a colorful boho vibe, but still maintains that quintessential Hamptons’ vibe- relaxed but chic. As far as kids’ fashion in the Hamptons, it’s all about comfort! Popular brands on the East End include Pink Chicken and Ralph Lauren. In this fashion story, my daughter, Elise, and I spent the morning with Babiekins Magazine’s digital editor and photographer, Elizabeth Pettey. Elizabeth got some killer shots of Elise’s favorite summer outfits at some cool spots in East Hampton/Amagansett/Montauk. The outfits are a mix of textiles and colors and are light and comfortable for the summer.
When it comes to dressing my daughter, I love clothes with spunk and personality. With something a little funny (golden ants!), a little cheeky (bears repeating “Hey. Why?”), and a little off the beaten path (a detachable plush!), WUNWAY fits the bill perfectly. And everything is so comfy and soft, making a WUNWAY wardrobe ideal for all those snow days and vacation days coming up soon.
WUNWAY EDITOR’S PICKS // 01. Smiley Hearts/Cutie Heart Top | 02. Leonie Dress (Comes with a detachable plush bunny!) | 03. Bear Print Eggy Fleece 2-Piece Set (The text on the top reads, “Hey. Why?” I mean, is that not every little kid’s endless refrain?!) | 04. Lila Tights in Grey + Black Argyle | 05. Black Golden Ant Leggings (I love these adorable not-so-creepy crawlies!)
Back to School is officially here and we are ready and geared up for the season. Use this inspiration to pull some casually chic pieces together for those early mornings. Mix and match, get creative and stay comfortable this school year.
