Hamptons Style

It's labor day weekend! Feeling inspired by the prospect of a lazy and long weekend, I keep going back to look at these pictures from the Hamptons taken by The Sartorialist for Style.com. Click here to see the full slideshow.

Wouldn't it be fun to be a guest at wedding with this kind of laid-back elegance- sort of like a Gatsby-style event with croquet, melon balls, and lots of women wearing big, floppy hats (for Faye, she loves hats)? That is the kind of country club wedding I would actually want to go to...

Oh how I look forward to the day that Country Club Chic comes back... loving the offbeat brides... but aching for a good 'ole preppy wedding...

I love this board. The colors are wonderful and it is so casually chic.

Woohoo - I am so happy right now for the inspiration in this board you've put together! The Great Gatsby is my favourite book of all time, and I am having a country club wedding but have been lacking inspiration for a theme or decor that will all tie in together. You have just provided it. Absolutely perfect, thank you!!!

Hooray - that's the theme of my wedding and now I have the perfect word for it "Gatsby-esque". I had described it as "Nautical" meets "Hemmingway" before, but this is better. Thanks!
