Big White Houses


I love a big white house, especially with a hydrangea garden surrounding it! My mom is going to kill me if I don’t mention this but this is exactly the type of house I grew up in so yes, I’m turning in to you mom!

Anyways, if you don’t follow me on Pinterest yet – you can do so here! I’ve been pinning big white houses as of late and the pretty exteriors have me so excited for spring. The Hamptons, Newport, Rhode Island and Nantucket are a few of my favorite destinations where you more than likely can find big white houses with perfectly manicured yards and gardens. More often than not when I travel to these towns, I find myself taking photos of peoples homes (creepy, I know) but can you blame me?! They make for perfect Instagram content! Today I’ve rounded up a few big white houses you can drool over. You’re welcs. Xo. Lauren

There’s something about wicker bags that just scream spring! Pair a wicker bag with white pants and a top, you will be looking as chic as ever!

As we gear up for warmer weather and build up our spring wardrobes, a girl must add a wicker or straw bag to her collection. Whether you prefer bamboo, straw, or woven totes, J.Mclaughlin has a few of my absolute favorites this season including the Ava wicker handbag, the Bernice leather hand wicker tote, the Jill tote, and last but not least, the Victoria circular wicker bag.

Trip Planning: Ocean House, Rhode Island


So it’s freezing in New York…Legit, freezing!! I don’t know about you guys but this weather has me planning all sorts of trips for spring and summer! Two years ago I visited Ocean House Rhode Island with my family and I instantly fell in love with the hotel and the surrounding property! I don’t think I ever shared photos from that trip so since I’m looking to plan a trip back there this spring, I thought now would be a perfect time!

I think I instantly fell in love with Ocean House because of the location and history. Situated on top of the bluffs of Watch Hill, Ocean House has been an iconic New England seaside destination since 1868. Isn’t that crazy? Both the hotel, restaurant and spa have 5 stars making Ocean House one of only 11 resorts with a triple 5-star rating according to Forbes! Take a peek below at some of my favorite photos from the trip and the hotel website right here!

Are you planning any fun weekend trips this spring? Would love to hear where you’re going! Xo. Lauren

My Favorite Items From Horchow


I have been shopping on Horchow for what seems like – forever! They carry some of my favorite brands including Jonathan Adler, John Robshaw, Ralph Lauren and so on. I have picked up numerous items from Horchow to-date from dinnerware to bath accessories to my couch! One of my favorite things about Horchow is they constantly do flash sales! So if you have your eye on a specific product, you could catch it on a surprise flash sale.

A few of my favorite items from Horchow!

I have been obsessed with this Jonathan Adler shower curtain for quite some time – need to pull the trigger!

My mom taught me you can never have too many white throw blankets. I like to use these on my white couch to make sure I don’t spill anything. #clutz

Ever since I moved to the Upper East side, I’ve been investing in mixed blue and white plates. Who said everything needs to match all the time?

Horchow has the best Ralph Lauren bar ware. How cute are these cocktail picks? Need them for my bar cart asap.

My next purchase from Horchow is most certainly going to be a John Robshaw quilt – I really want one of these to include in my bedroom reveal!

This white marble coffee table has been featured in Studio-McGee home tours and is definitely on my radar.
