Hamptons Must Haves

by J. J. HUNSECKER · June 6, 2008

Another weekend of Hamptons fun is about to begin today and besides the sunblock and a great swimsuit, the two things I never leave home without are sandals and books.

This summer, I have the perfect summer read for you. Pick up a copy of "The Divorce Party" by Laura Dave. Dave tells the story of a young Brooklyn couple that head out to Montauk for a drama-filled party at their in-laws cliff side home. It's a great family story, quick read and perfect for anyone that heads out East in the summer. The landmarks will bring back personal summer memories, you will be immersed in the story and wishing for a sequel by the last page.

The other beach must and Giselle Bundchen fave, are Havaianas. This summer they are being made with a fabulous twist. Hot makeup artists, Trish McEvoy, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier have each created a pair of the lust-worthy and ever-so-comfortable flip-flops. As if their makeup wasn't enough, now you can wear an affordably chic pair of their sandals on Coopers Beach.

From June 8th to the 22nd, you can swing by Saks or Saks.com and pick up a pair of the swinging sandals AND help a good cause - all proceeds go to Charity: Water!
