Royal PainsJill Flint models the latest styles in this pale hue that’s perfect for your summer gatherings.

What’s summer about? “Barbecues, beer and enjoying the warm weather,” says Royal Pains star Jill Flint, who knows what she’s talking about — her show is set in a swanky East Coast getaway spot: the Hamptons in New York. OK! asked Jill to model some of the season’s freshest looks and dish on her idea of a perfect summer.

What were summers like growing up?
My town had one stoplight and you don’t have to lock your doors. My kindergarten teacher was my dad’s, too. It borders [the Catskill Mountains], so there are hills and green everywhere. Summers were absolutely beautiful.

Have you vacationed in the Hamptons?
I have, but I’m usually at friends’ houses. I’m not much of a scenester, so I don’t really go out to the clubs.

Let’s talk barbecues: burgers or hot dogs?

With the bun? Or no white carbs?
You can’t have a burger without the bun. Once a week, I have a burger with mayo, lettuce, cheese and a bun. I work hard all week; on Sunday, I’m eating. I like to share it with friends. I like to provide the comfort of home, food, wine and conversation. That’s what I enjoy!
