15 Super Cute Wicker Bags for Spring


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.

20 Coffee Table Books That Will Totally Enhance Your Coffee Table Style


I’ve been an avid collector of coffee table books for a few years now! Whenever I visit stores like Ralph Lauren, Pottery Barn or Williams-Sonoma I always take note which coffee table books they have on display! I normally take pictures to remind myself to look them up so I can share them with you guys! The blog world is great but at times I feel like bloggers share the same books over and over again. I’m making it my mission to share coffee table books that aren’t majorly advertised but are still just as chic!

3 Different Gallery Wall Ideas For 2017


You know I love a good gallery wall! Above is the one I created in my last apartment and I’m currently trying to figure out if I will be incorporating a gallery wall in my new UES apartment. I know how hard it can be to create a cohesive gallery wall so today I thought I would put together three different gallery wall ideas you can incorporate into your home this year! Whenever I create a gallery wall, I like to stick to a theme so I focused on themes I personally love: the Beach (duh), Europe (Paris), and an Abstract theme utilizing prints and photographs from my ever-favorite Minted.

I particularly love shopping for prints on Minted because they make it so easy – you can choose the frame, size and matte. The price points are also easy on your bank account!! In case you need more help designing a gallery wall, check out my tips on how to create the ultimate gallery wall here! P.s. you can shop each gallery wall by clicking on the black and white plus sign next to each frame and I’ve also included the links / images below with the direct links. If you have an idea for a gallery wall that you’d like me to help you design, shoot me a note at lauren@lauren-nelson.com.

Happy New Year! Xo. Lauren
