A friend is a gift you give yourself.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

While we can’t choose our families, (and I’m not going to spoil the mood by bringing mine into the picture), thankfully we can choose our friends!

And we think we’ve chosen rather well! Case and point, have a look here at a few of my favorite pals—the smiles are brought to you thanks to my super chic friend, Carmindy, who had us all to her beach house for a glorious weekend romp, seaside in Montauk. Wine, summer cookouts, lounging around—the simple things that make for a beautiful August getaway.

I trust our WIJW friends are out there enjoying some of these remaining Halcyon days of summer together as well!

There’s a diverse group in Montauk—surfers, hedge fund guys, artists, etc. and so I assembled a look that has a sort of preppie-hippie vibe—let’s call it South Hampton Boheme.

I’m sporting a royal blue cotton satin jacket by Gucci, Baumans Men’s store provided me with this pale blue linen shirt with contrast white collar and french cuffs and the white linen and pale blue pocket square, Seaman Schepps pearl cuff links with pale blue sapphires, cotton madras plaid shorts from Club Monaco, red alligator belt with silver buckle from Ralph Lauren, bone suede loafers by Tom Ford and my cologne Creed Bois de Cedrat.
