Where are all the cool kids heading this Labor Day? To find out, we went straight to Williamsburg tastemakers Sarah Meyer and Ryan Thomann of Life:Curated, Brooklyn’s continually top-rated fashion and lifestyle boutique.
Not only did the super-hip duo let us in on their ideal destinations, but also filled us in on exactly what to pack for each spot.
If only summer could last forever…
Destination No. 1: Castle Hill Inn – Newport, Rhode Island
WHERE: “This 19th-century mansion was originally a summer home to famed biologist Alexander Agassiz, and now invites guests to clambakes, beach bonfires, movie nights, and more on its luxurious grounds. It’s the classic New England experience but suuuper classy.”
WEAR: “Keeping it casual but also a bit fancy is a fine line, but here’s what we’d put together: LnA’s striped classic crew tee takes care of the preppy stripes that are a must. Keep the denim skinny and clean with Courtshop’s high waisted skinny in the Saturday wash, which is nice and dark blue. When you’re not wearing your boat shoes, you can throw on Dolce Vita’s Heren boot with Hansel from Basel puff socks and top it off with Rose Pierre’s timeless wrap necklace and Liebeskind’s bubble leather clutch. Voila…you are ready for a lobster dinner!”
Destination No. 2: Quebec City, Canada
WHERE: “This is the crown jewel of French Canada. Chateau Frontenac, Old City ghost tours, hiking in the forest, hot dudes speaking French to you all day, yes please.”
WEAR: “We picked a guy’s outfit for Quebec, consisting of Creep’s polar fleece jacket and dobby plaid shirt, as it is most likely a tad chillier up north. A Herschel camo colorblock Settlement backpack will hold everything a tourist needs while exploring the city and beyond. The Honour leather high tops by J Shoes will be his new fave sneaks. Ashkahn’s Boring hat, Imm Living Fox cup, Two’s Co. bottle opener keychain and an Izola golden thyme candle seem like appropriate Canadian adventure accessories.”
Destination 3: Miami, Florida
WHERE: “For the last bit of summer fun, Miami’s got beaches, crazy club parties, as well as tons of art deco architecture.”
WEAR: “With this party getaway, sequins are a must for any outfit. Dolce Vita’s Wassily dress keeps it sparkly without going overboard in the wrong direction. As if a sequined dress needed more sparkle, we’re going to pile on the gold with DLC’s Stratus necklace and Elizabeth Knight’s Armor earrings and paint our nails in metallic copper by RGB. Heels are a must, so what could be better than DV by Dolce Vita’s Dollie pump? Black suede with a gold heel will kick everyone else to the curb. Don’t forget your Maria clutch from Liebeskind, your Urkel Sunglasses from Komono and your leopard covered phone from Rifle! Ok, now you are all set to party!”
