Hi Friends! If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (laurennelsonny), you might have seen that I shared that The Everygirl featured my home tour! You can see the entire interview right here. I became friends with Danielle and Alaina (co-founders of TE) right when I first started blogging back in Chicago around 2011 – um, what?! So long ago now!!! But seriously, it’s been so fun seeing them grow the Everygirl in to what it is today. I mentioned this on my personal Facebook took, but I have probably seen / read every home tour feature on the Everygirl. I’m thrilled to be included on the site with the numerous other talented women! Be sure to pop on over to theeverygirl.com to see my home tour and a fun little interview. I answered a ton of questions about my career, why I moved from Chicago to New York, and more about my style. Happy Thursday!! Xo. Lauren
Can you believe Mother’s Day is right around the corner?! It’s that time of year again to celebrate the superheroes in our world – aka MOM. There are so many gifts that perfectly say “thank you.” My mom and I basically have the same taste – we both love stripes, gingham, handbags, anything monogrammed, navy, etc. The only major difference is that I love gold and my mom is a silver fan when it comes to jewelry, but other than that it’s pretty easy to find her a gift she will love! A few years ago, I bought my mom the Kate Spade “Mom Said So” Idiom bangle and still think it’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Other gifts on my radar this year include: this “I need a vacation” tote bag, these white stud earrings (perfect for summer and only $38 dollars), I also love these pink studs. My mom is also a huge David Yurman jewelry fan. I think David Yurman is the perfect gift to go in on with your siblings or Dad as well – Insert this silver link bracelet, this double x crossover ring, or your classic cable bracelet with gold.
I came across this colorful Nantucket beach house on House Beautiful today and I can’t get enough! You know when you’re browsing online, looking at photos and not really worried about reading the text? Well that’s exactly what I was doing today when I came across this feature and by the time I got halfway, I thought to myself “boy, this really looks like a Gary McBournie design”… and sure enough, him and his beau were pictured at the end! I’m sure that’s the ultimate goal as a designer is to have people recognize your work without your name being directly tied to it.
Anyhow, this Nantucket beach house is a dream. Perfectly manicured hedges, bold color throughout each and every room, a vintage bar cart and monogrammed towels too boot. Sign me up. Let’s add a Nantucket beach house to life goals, shall we? I think I mentioned this to you guys already but I’m headed to Nantucket for the first time this Junewith my family! I’m sure I’ll have several posts lined up around Nantucket content but taking any and all recommendations in the mean time! Happy almost Friday, my friends!! Xo. Lauren
