I’ve been to New York City so many times, but this was my first time visiting the beach in New York! We stayed at The Surf Lodge in Montauk, which is way out on the eastern tip of the peninsula. I went with Maison Margiela in celebration of their pop up shop launch, so they had a lot of fun activities planned. One of my favorite activities was horse back riding on the beach (um, dreeeeam) which was inspired by one of their fragrances called “Beach Walk.”
a week at the beautiful beach!
The Surf Lodge was such a cute hotel, and it felt like a little glimpse of LA on the East Coast. Everything was beach house-inspired with white washed walls, bright colored art work and even free bike rentals. We celebrated my birthday there, hung out with friends and ate a ton of seafood. One our last day we went site seeing to a few difference places, including the gorgeous lighthouse. It was foggy that day, but still such a beautiful view!
I’m so glad to have experienced this unique part of New York which was so different from the city. If I ever buy a vacation home someday… this’ll be the place! (Dreaming….)
After Montauk, I spent a few more days in the city for meetings with some of my favorite brands and companies that I work with – AND I definitely did some exploring in the city as well! I’ve always loved New York but this time I went without such a hectic schedule and really got to enjoy walking around and trying new restaurants. I’m actually thinking about visiting again in a month or so – can’t wait!
