Another day in beautiful USA

Went to Colleen and Rodney's fantastic yogic colourful house for coffee to talk about our partnership. She showed me these cute velvet hot pants in loads of different jewel colours that are made in Brooklyn. All the yoga teachers love them.
Headed to Montauk via Easthampton for J Crew. So love their colours and how they add an edge to the classics. Crew cut, their line for kids, is the BEST. Bought some brown desert boots for our son, with bright orange laces that they'd styled themselves.
Montauk is where it is happening right now for the younger hip crowd. It's where the surf is. Went to Ditch Plains beach, grabbing a sandwich from Ditch-witch caravan. Surf contest happening but waves small.
By the way, everywhere you go, everyone looks AMAZING. All the women work out/do yoga/do pilates/surf like crazy. In the mornings every single woman is wearing sports kit. All the mums look like Elle McPherson in tiny string bikinis and cowboy hats, and all the "kids" look like cool roxy models in mismatched bikinis and tattoos. They work so hard at their bodies.
We had sundowners at the Surf Lodge - live band, people really dressed up. Hip and happening. Visited yet another great store where I bought some beautiful beachwear (again great brands, including Lisa Maria Fernandez swimwear.)
Then to Crows Nest for dinner. Big lawn going down to a little beach with braziers everywhere and marshmallows to roast. Amazing sunset. Fabulous food. Bumped into a couple of our gorgeous yoga ambassadors there. Great day.
