Bollare’s Summer Guide: Scout16

Justin Livingston of the newly branded, Scout 16 is the last guest blogger for Bollare’s Summer Guide! To round it out, check out Justin’s pick for taking in the last few days of Summer.

"Every Sunday, I go to Union Square to sit, read and soak up some sun. The area is quite bustling so I still feel like I’m in the City. Sitting on the benches with a good book and ice cream from one of the dozens of food trucks - I, honestly, couldn’t be happier. For the best ice cream, try Coolhaus and be ready for a taste explosion!”

BOLLARE’S SUMMER GUIDE: CrySkay

Crystal of CrySkay is this week’s guest blogger for Bollare’s Summer Guide!  Looking for a quick escape from LA? Crystal has a suggestion.

My pick would be the Coliseum pool at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, CA. It’s the perfect place to escape the madness of LA. Drive on over, rent a cabana and have a girls day in one of the most beautiful pools with Roman inspired décor and lush greenery that’ll melt away the chaos of the city.

BOLLARE’S SUMMER GUIDE: ANDY HEART

Ann Kim of Andy Heart is this week’s guest blogger for Bollare’s Summer Guide!  Looking for the best raw food spot in LA? Look no further.

"My go-to spot for the summer definitely has to be Cru in Silverlake. I think it’s one of the best tasting raw food restaurants in Los Angeles.The atmosphere of the restaurant itself is quaint and fuss-free with simple chairs and minimal décor. The food there absolutely speaks for itself. Everything served there is raw and vegan friendly. The dishes are served to portray their passion for fresh and healthy ingredients."

Bollare’s Summer Guide: Tobruck Ave

This week, Kiara Schwartz of Tobruck Ave shares her favorite for Orange County Summer spot.

"Currently my fav hang out is Huntington Beach, where I live. The US open of surfing is on and it is just so much fun to hang at the beach and watch the surfers do their thing. All the different people from all over the world that flock to the beach that is right in front of my house to watch this event. Its really insane how sporting events such as this and of course the olympics bring out a huge crowd all cheering for something they love. "

BOLLARE’S SUMMER GUIDE: Grease & Glamour

This week, Jinna Yang of Grease & Glamour shares her pick for NYC’s lower portion: Financial District at Battery Park.

I live right by Battery Park which is amazing because it’s not crowded yet it has a beautiful waterfront view. There’s a great jogging path, it’s quiet and far from away from the craziness that is often Manhattan. It’s like my own peaceful little nook in the city.”

Bollare’s Summer Guide: Style Wax Poetic

This week, Kristen Conahan of Style Wax Poetic shares her pick for a summer’s day in Los Feliz/Silver Lake. 

There is never a shortage of summer fun in Los Feliz/Silver Lake. Check out drive-in ‘walk-in’ movies at the Alcove, while you enjoy some of their delectable food and drinks on their garden patio. (Dogs are welcome too.) 

Stop at High Fidelity after, as you’ll most likely stumble upon a party and live DJ set inside their store.  If it’s a beautiful summer weekend day, which it always is on the East Side, grab some wine and snacks with friends, and enjoy the setting sun at Silver Lake Reservoir park. 

And of course, don’t forget the great shopping in the neighborhood. Check out Confederacy Boutique to find unique designers hand-picked by DJ Danny Masterson and Ilaria Urbinati, then pop in the Claire Vivier flagship store (just opened!), where you’ll find Vivier’s bags, French book covers by Leanne Shapton, and select pieces by Steven Alan.

BOLLARE’S SUMMER GUIDE: Amanda Mull of PURSEBLOG

This week, Amanda Mull of Purse Blog shares her pick for Tribeca brunching at Super Linda

So far, my favorite summer brunch spot is Super Linda in Tribeca. It doesn’t have an outdoor area, but ask to be seated in the airy front section and you’ll feel like you’re sitting outside but with the benefit of air conditioning. On top of that, the menu of Latin-flavored brunch dishes all include two hours of unlimited bellinis, mimosas or Bloody Marias for a cool 30 bucks - start with a bloody and move on to a bellini once your chilaquiles arrive.”

BOLLARE’S SUMMER GUIDE: Running in Wedges

This week, Nicole Sereda of Running in Wedges shares her pick for those Williamsburg Summer nights at La Superior NYC.  

"Favorite Mexican food spot ever. They make the best margaritas in all of Williamsburg (Yes, I can say that because I’m pretty sure I have tried close to all margs in the ‘burg) It’s small, but has a huge hype going right now. If it’s not for the margs, it’s for their $5 chips and guac. Delish!"

Bollare’s Summer Guide: Cheyenne Meets Chanel

Excited to launch the first of Bollare’s Summer Guide featuring our fashion blogger friends from coast to coast as they share their favorite Summer hotspots with us.

This week, Shea Marie from Cheyenne Meets Chanel dishes on one of her favorite West Hollywood haunts; the Chateau Marmont.

"My favorite summer spot in West Hollywood is having dinner outside on the patio at the Chateau Marmont. The air is warm, the candles and hanging lights strung across terraces makes the ambiance perfect. I love going there for a glass of wine and sharing appetizers with my girlfriends - and of course the hotel itself has a wonderful history and a perfect reminder of old Hollywood glamour."
