While you got a peek at my weekend in Sag Harbor over Memorial Day weekend earlier this week, I wanted to share additional snaps I took over my days spent in this charming seaside town. Everything had such character, such style and such delight in it and I could not have loved it more. Plus, I loved playing with the new Samsung SH100 camera that has wi-fi capabilities and let me post photos I took all weekend to Facebook, how cool is that? Twas part of their awesome Coast to Coast Photo Post program in which I participated! You’ll be able to see some of my shots in their Facebook app soon…

How cute does Sag Harbor seem just from these pics, right?!

(Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a $100 to spend on their site!)

Disclosure: In accordance to the FTC Guidelines and WOMMA Code of Ethics, I am disclosing that my time and efforts have been compensated by Samsung for my participation in the Coast to Coast Photo Post campaign, and I was also provided a Samsung SH100 camera. Although I have a material connection to Samsung, any publicly stated opinions of Samsung remain my own.

As previously mentioned, this past weekend was spent in the Hamptons with girlfriends for a much needed escape from the city and in celebration of Memorial Day. The days were spent by the pool, sipping Skinny Girl margaritas (they are so yummy!) and mimosas, soaking up the sunshine and plenty of storytelling. The nights were filled with yummy seafood, ice cream, cocktails, darts and dancing. Sag Harbor is a darling town where I wish I could spend all my summer weekends.

p.s. check out Blair’s look with this same Zara skirt. It’s one of my favorite’s of hers!

hope you all had fabulous long weekends! xoxo

w&w gift guide 2010: 06: Belle’s Picks

If you’re a WIT & Whimsy regular reader you know that I travel. A LOT. Outfit posts in the last month alone have recently shown my state-hopping in Illinois, New York and Texas. So when I asked the super stylish, oh-so-witty and truly wonderful Belle of Capitol Hill Style to select her picks for a gift guide all her own to be showcased here on WIT & Whimsy, I loved that it was travel related. But let’s be real, what don’t we love of Capitol Hill Style’s? Seriously, one of the best blogs ever.

So let’s get to it (and don’t forget to check out all the 2010 Gift Guides to finish out that wonderful shopping list of yours for all your loved ones!)

  1. Nordstrom ‘Eyelash’ Cashmere wrap, $95
  2. Rebecca Minkoff Passport Case, $98
  3. Louis Vuitton City Guides, $34
  4. Flip Video HD, $149.99

“Despite living in Washington, D.C. within close proximity to two international airports, I’ve never traveled out of the country.  In fact, I’ve never even been outside of the lower 48 states.  But next year, that’s all going to change.  I don’t know when, I don’t know how, but in 2011, I am going somewhere awesome.

And this gift guide is full of items that I’m going to need for my first overseas trip. If any of you experienced travelers have tips and tricks that you’d love to share with this Carmen San Diego gumshoe (hello, children of the 90s, I loved that game too!), feel free to leave them in the comments.  Happy Holidays and Godspeed.” – Belle
