Saturday City: A Perfect Hamptons Weekend

We first noticed Amy Stone on Instagram. Photos of everything from surfboards to beautiful country cottages to packed suitcases and interesting objects gave a glimpse into a sense of style and a life lived well. And while we’re used to other people’s Instagrams giving us FOMO, Amy’s did something else: they actually kind of relaxed us. As if we were on a journey with her.

So it was no surprise to learn that Amy is inspired by places and times that embody leisure time spent wisely: West Coast surf culture, 1960s Palm Beach, and East Coast preppy iconography have influenced what catches her eye. In going down the Amy Stone Insta-wormhole we realized two things: One, that Amy didn’t just know how to party, but also how to relax and enjoy, and two, that we wanted to go wherever she goes. So we asked Amy, a creative director who’s worked with many of our faves (think Veuve Clicquot and Rag & Bone) and who now oversees digital and social media for The Gap, to give us the goods: her perfect Saturday in one of her favorite places, the Hamptons.
