I’ve enjoyed spending more time in the city this summer, reveling in the many fantastic spaces on offer in my own backyard. But beating the heat is no easy feat, especially when temperatures regularly soar upwards of 95°. Playing one of my favorite summertime games (How little fabric can I get away with before it becomes unsuitable to wear in public?), I busted out this floral slip dress for a trip to one of my favorite ice cream parlors on the lower east side.

Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, which opened in Summer 2014, has become serious Instagram bate for the trendy set. Their ever-changing menu offers dozens of hand crafted, artisanal flavors (think: Szechuan peppercorn chocolate, green tea pistachio, and black licorice) that satisfy the cravings of locals and tourists alike. The nostalgia-tinged interiors are sure to conjure up daydreams of what the area would have been like in the 1950s, as glorified in the films of Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese.

If only summer could truly be endless! It’s only the first week of September, but it seems as though everyone has already transitioned into an autumn state of mind. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to breaking out the oversized cable knits and going apple picking as much as anyone! Yet there is still a part of me that doesn’t want to let go of those last few morsels of summertime fun. Thankfully, I was able to head out East for one final hurrah with the #squad for Labor Day weekend.

One of the best things about living in New York City is being able to leave it. While I would never dream of permanently decamping from my hometown, it can feel a bit overwhelming at times. Especially for someone so easily affected by external energies. The Hamptons, beyond its glitzy public image, is the perfect respite to metropolis living. Only two hours away from midtown Manhattan by wheels or tracks, there is an endless supply of entertainment and relaxation options. We made the most of our final hours of summer by hitting some of my favorite spots on the South Fork.
