August To-Do List

Rabbit Rabbit! I love August—it’s quite possibly my favorite month. Yes, it’s the last leg of summer, which is bittersweet, but there are also a lot of fun things to do. First up, Coldplay concert tonight with my younger daughter. Unfortunately, it’s not at Jones Beach, the all-time best concert venue, but it will be amazing nonetheless. Coming up are some serious beach days and I’m ready with a new swimsuit and the must-read After Andy: Adventures in Warhol Land by my ex Harper’s Bazaar colleague Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni. Then, tennis and riding—with the US Open and Hampton Classic both in my backyard, these are two events we never, ever miss. And last but not least, lots and lots of great food. Corn, tomatoes, blueberry pie, and lobster rolls just seem to taste better in August.

  • Woohoo! Have fun, it all sounds fantastic in particular the tennis and riding. Will check out your book recommendation. Nothing better than a good concert or a good swimsuit. I still miss my Zimmerman togs which I lost…. how does that happen?

  • Yep, me too! Lot’s of folks travel in August so our neck of the woods is quieter.

  • Preston, does the swimsuit run true to size? It seems to have good full coverage on the back. Any other comments on the quality, fit, etc.? Thanks! Irina

  • Irina, It is a suit for someone short-waisted. I went up a size and may have the straps shortened. Love the styling.
