    Yea, we're stoked about trench-coat weather and Central Park transforming into a veritable pink-and-orange Monet painting come October. But, there’s no denying that our hearts are already aching for summer now that we've said goodbye to our beloved R29 Beach House, where we've spent the last few weekends chilling with some pretty great people. One of those people: Amirah Kassem, owner of the NYC sweet-treat stop, Flour Shop. She joined us, along with our partners at Secret, for our last weekend in Montauk and a fond farewell to the season.

    Some highlights from our 48 hours with New York's most badass baker? Witnessing the creation of a human ice-cream cone, doing a bit of DIY dyeing, and lazily floating on a gigantic pastry (what?). But, lest we spoil it for you, we've rounded up a collection of delicious snaps you can ogle yourself in the slides ahead. Fall may have officially arrived, but a few more epic adventures of summer are just a short click away.

    It's safe to say sunflowers are in season. Amirah pairs her tank with distressed shorts for a relaxed weekend ensemble.

    The whole gang is here! Artist Hisham Bharoocha, prop stylist Anthony D’Argenzio, psychiatric social worker Kate Thompson, R29 executive creative director Piera Gelardi, and, of course, Amirah, are all sporting their DIY tie-dyed shirts. The guys' tees were a little too snug, so Amirah decided to cut them into tank tops and used the scraps as a headband.

    A bit of edible glitter makes melting ice cream that much sweeter.

    A (very windy) trip to the beach.
