The first brand of designer jeans that I ever bought, back in high school, was made by 7 for all Mankind. I remember the way they looked, felt, and the way they made me feel. Like I owned every room. Like a million bucks. Today, there are so many fabulous designer denim brands that I love but I’ll always have a special place in my heart for 7FAM.
When they reached out to me to do a post together, my inner 16 year old (and current 28 year old) had to pinch herself. Sometimes this whole blogging thing isn’t so bad after all. The hours spent writing posts, styling, and shooting outfits often suck up my weekends and work nights but then an exciting partnership like this comes along and it’s all worth it.
I digress. Let’s get to the point, shall we? This post is supposed to be all about my favorite summer activities. It’s a toughie because I love them all! We go away almost every weekend between June and September so we try to make our days in the city extra special. My husband and I love to eat out but we’re really bad about trying new spots. Our favorite neighborhood date night restaurant is East End Kitchen which is only a few blocks from where we live.
In the summer, we get a drink at the bar next to the open doors, eat our dinner, and then walk along the East River as the sun is setting. New York can be hectic in the summer but our little corner of the Upper East Side is pretty chill and I so appreciate that.
My actual list of favorite summertime activities include:
– Eating lobster rolls on 2nd beach in Newport
– Family BBQs in Martha’s Vineyard
– Impromptu weeknight dinners al fresco with girlfriends
– Watermelon (eating, not drankin’)
– Gin and tonics on my dad’s porch
– My birthday!
– Sipping on rosé with Anel and talking for hours about our future
– Playing outside with my 3 year old brother
– Running on the Cliff Walk in Newport
– Lounging with a good book in Central Park
– Watching the sunset
– Being tan
– Rooftop anything. . .
– Smiling constantly. Because it’s summer!

Oh and before you ask, a tutorial for my wavy hair is: Wash it, twirl it between your fingers when it’s still wet, sleep on it, wake up, go!
