Weekend Notes

The @serenaandlily beach market this year..

Good morning! How was your 4th of July? Did you love having a short work week as much as I did? Although Wednesday felt like a Monday, I’m so happy today is Friday. Luckily we will be staying put in the city this weekend. On the agenda includes visiting the Met and having afternoon tea at The Plaza. Spending time at The Plaza is actually one of my all-time favorite activities to do here in New York. So if you’re planning a trip soon or over the holidays, I highly recommend adding The Plaza to your itinerary.

Anywho! Today I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite links from around the web this week. There are so many great sales happening right now. It really feels like everyone is having their end-of-summer sale already. Psst – You do not want to miss the Club Monaco sale right now. Have a great weekend, everyone. Xo. Lauren

A Charming Nantucket Abode


I was browsing Traditional Home the other day and came across this Nantucket home tour that I had to share with you guys! Although it’s not as nautical or as “blue and white” as I typically like homes on Nantucket, I love the traditional elements design firm Nancy Serafini incorporated throughout this spacious family abode.
