How do Byrne’s childhood vacations stack up against her current summertime loves?
SWEET TREAT Then “An Australian ice cream called Hokey Pokey.”
Now “Salted-caramel gelato from Amorino in New York.”
SCENT Then “Growing up in Australia, the smell of jasmine, which blooms in summer,
and sunscreen.” Now “Sunscreen again and the smell of New York: the streets and metal getting hot.”
SWIMSUIT Then “When I was five, I had a frilly polka-dot halter-neck bathing suit.” Now “An Australian brand called Zimmermann does a really great one-piece.”
LOVE FEST Then “I had a very brief romance during my first year of high school. We would hang out on his front porch.” Now “Seeing Shakespeare in the Park is a really magical, romantic thing to do.”
SIPPER Then “7UP was a real treat for me.” Now “I like a nice cold Mexican beer or a margarita.” h
