Hamptons season has officially begun! After spending hours creating “natural” caramel balayage hair, shield your locks with milliner Helen Kaminski’s Classic 5, a 30th anniversary special-edition Carinya raffia beach hat. Pick it up at Complements en route to Main Beach, but be sure to also make a pit stop in Southampton at Aerin Lauder’s just opened namesake boutique. With dinner at a friend’s cottage just hours away and visions of maximizing beach time, pick up a gift for your host immédiatement, toss it into your new Hermès tote, and off you go. Having bought this signature satchel months ago while longing for summer, wait no more. Just like that, it’s here.

Chef Sam Talbot
Those missing the quintessential Hamptons dishes whipped up by chef Sam Talbot, who left The Surf Lodge in 2011, now have a new Montauk venue to get their fill. The cookbook author and Top Chef fan favorite is partnering with Zach Lynd of Turf. Talbot and Lynd began working closely in late 2012 while collaborating on a food truck that served meals to those displaced by Hurricane Sandy in Rockaway. This summer expect Turf’s 1967 Airstream to serve breakfast items such as cold-pressed juices—think green juice or a surfer-inspired pineapple–coconut water–chia seed blend—and yogurt with seasonal vegetables in addition to the famous lobster rolls and salads. “People on the beach have been really asking for breakfast and fresh juices,” says Lynd. “It’s amazing that I get to do that with somebody like Sam, who has an understanding of food that’s really fresh and healthy.” Near Ditch Plains Beach, Montauk

But there’s good news for Hamptons homeowners in the seller’s arena: The Corcoran Group SVP and associate real estate broker Michael Schultz says that this year’s sales numbers are swiftly approaching figures similar to 2007, a milestone year that peaked Hamptons real estate market trends. “I now see a lot of things have sold, particularly within 2012,” Schultz says. “Inventory is at the lowest level that it’s been since the crash in 2008.”>>Read More
