Barry's Bootcamp

Summer has a habit of arriving before our bodies are beach-ready, but the new Barry's Bootcamp in Wainscott will whip you into shape in no time. The gym's beachy interior brings us back to lazy days at summer camp and almost makes you forget about that buff trainer shouting at you to do three more reps.

Blue & Cream

On-trend pieces from the hottest brands around fill the racks at celeb fave Blue & Cream, which lists Kate Mara, Kristen Bell, and (believe it or not) Sir Paul McCartney on its roster of A-list shoppers. Stop in the just re-opened spread for that must-have silky sleeveless blouse from Equipment or a cozy rag & bone knit to keep you warm after the sun goes down.

Alice + Olivia

You can guarantee that Alice + Olivia's new 1,350-square-foot East Hampton store will be upping the style ante at all of this summer's dinner parties — their girly, sophisticated garb in punchy colors is always on point for turning heads. If the clothing alone isn't enough to convince you to swing by, the interior is just as eye-catching, so don't be afraid to do a little browsing.

Whole Foods Farm Stand

Whole Foods hits the Hamptons with its pop-up farm stand market, much to the pleasure of WF addicts. Local produce is the pride of the store, as signs listing neighborhood farms and providers are prominent. We think our summers just got a whole lot more flavorful; Who wants to bet the line is not gonna be short?

Maison24

Bridgehampton boutique Maison24 has all of the perfect summer gear for the man in your life, doling out fashion-forward casual gear from Parke & Ronen and Warby Parker. Whimsical, tongue-in-chic home goods (bejeweled computer mouse, anyone?) are also among the shop's offerings. Needless to say, Maison24's unique (read: wildly fun) aesthetic renders it worthy of a stop on those inevitable rainy day shopping trips.

C. Wonder

As if C.Wonder's vibrant colors and must-have accessories, home goods, and costume jewelry weren't enough, their new Southampton location is tempting us with weekly scheduled events. Think ice cream socials, dance parties, free candy, temporary tattoos, and monogramming. Who needs the beach?!

Zum Schneider

Zum Schneider calls itself a "Baravian Indoor Biergarten," a.k.a. a whole lot of laid-back fun. Throw back a cold one after a long day at the beach and chow down on some braten or wurst for a culinary experience that's sure to transport you to the Baltic Sea. What's on tap for this summer? Well over a dozen different beers, a pig roast to celebrate the biergarten's grand opening, and screenings of every UEFA Football game. Prost!
