1. Style Inspiration: The US Open

    The US Open has always provided a platform for tennis starts to make a fashion statement. Without the long list of rules like we have at Wimbledon, the tournament invites players (and fans) to dress to impress. Here are a few of our favorite looks and some statement-making styles from our collection to inspire your next match.

    1971: Chris Evert and Billie Jean King

    These rivals hit the court in almost matching white lace dresses at the 1971 US Open.

  2. Workout Fuel: 3 Nutritionist-Approved Smoothies

    What we eat before and after we hit the court is just as important as staying hydrated and taking the time to properly stretch. But what exactly should we be feeding our bodies? We asked nutritionist Amy Shapiro of Real Nutrition to share her favorite workout smoothie recipes. Get your blender ready.

    Green Energy Kick

    1 cup baby spinach

    1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 

    1/2 green apple

    1/2 banana

    1 tsp cinnamon

    1 TBSP chia seeds

    1 TBSP rolled oats

    Directions: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Recommend completing intake 30 minutes before exercising.

    From Amy: “This is a great smoothie to enjoy an hour before your workout as it is loaded with easily digestible carbohydrates to fuel your workout without weighing you down by too much fiber, fat or protein. The chia seeds will help to keep you hydrated during your workout, the oats will maintain energy levels, and the fruits contain important nutrients including electrolytes to keep your muscles firing. The fiber from the whole fruits and veggies will also provide sustained energy for a solid workout.”

    Post-Workout Refuel

    1 cup unsweetened almond milk

    1 cup frozen berries

    1/2 banana

    1 cup greens (we like spinach)

    1 TBSP chia seeds

    1 serving protein powder or two scoops collagen peptides


    Directions: Blend all ingredients until smooth. 

    From Amy: “This low calorie, high fiber, and nutrient rich smoothie will refuel your muscles with protein and electrolytes. When paired with fruit and heart healthy fats, your appetite will be satisfied as well. Refueling within an hour of exercise is important and smoothies are an easy way to meet your needs even when in a rush! Drink up!”

    Tropical Greens

    1 cup coconut water

    1/2 cup frozen spinach

    1 medium frozen banana

    3/4 cup frozen mango

    1 tsp spirulina

    1/4 avocado

    Fresh mint to taste

    Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender, mix until well combined.  

    From Amy: “This smoothie rehydrates, fights free radicals, and will provide refreshing energy post-workout. What tastes better after a long sweaty workout than fresh fruits and veggies? Filled with potassium, this will help you fight off muscle cramps too!”

  3. Our Guide to Summer Glamping

    It’s officially glamping season! Think of glamping as the perfect combination of traditional camping (tents and fire pits!) and a boutique hotel stay (a real bed!). It’s one of our favorite ways to spend a little time in nature. Here are the places we want to set up camp this summer:

    Terra Glamping, East Hampton

    Located 10 minutes from downtown East Hampton, Terra Glamping allows you to set up camp at Cedar Point County Park. With views of Sag Harbor and Shelter Island, these safari-style tents are designed with queen beds and front porches for taking in those water views. Your nightly s’mores are also included.

    Collective Retreats, Governors Island

    Just a ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan, Collective Retreats offers three different tent styles on Governors Island. Start your morning with breakfast at Three Peaks Restaurant and a yoga class, and spend the afternoon biking ride around the island. The perfect getaway is just minutes from the busy city.

    Firelight Camps, Ithaca

    With safari tents tucked into the woods, Firelight Camps in Ithaca is a true escape. While you’re there, go on a foraging hike, take an outdoor yoga class, or enjoy an in-tent massage. Locally-sourced continental breakfast is also served daily.

    Mendocino Grove, California

    At Mendocino Grove, you’ll feel like your back at summer camp. Spread across 37 acres, Mendocino offers both classic and family safari-style tents set amongst the forest. Guests can enjoy ocean views, hiking trails, bocce ball, and yoga on Saturday mornings.

    The Ranch at Rock Creek, Montana

    The Ranch at Rock Creek offers a luxury glamping experience like no other. Set amongst the wildflowers with mountain views, the canvas tents at Rock Creek feature gas stoves and decks with creek views. The Trapper Cabin includes a private cedar soaking tub, which is perfect for unwinding after a day full of fishing and hiking.
