The Shopbop Black Friday Sale
0

This year I will be stocking up on cozy sweaters, coffee table books and jeans. What I love most about this sale is that you can shop designer brands you wouldn’t normally shop. I currently have my eye on Stuart Weitzman boots – I’ve been dying to get another pair (I currently have the 5050 boots and they pair perfectly with jeans or dresses!) I also want to try Levi’s jeans – I’ve heard rave reviews on their 721 skinny jeans! What’s on your shopping list this cyber week? Happy Shopping! Xo. Lauren

2017 Gift Guide Series | For The Jet Setter
0

You guys know how much I love to travel so putting together travel gift ideas for the jet setter on your list is always so fun for me! Over the past few years, I’ve learned a thing or two about my absolute “must haves” whenever I get on an airplane or train — many of which would make for great stocking stuffers or bigger gift ideas!

I personally like to travel with a carry-on suite case to avoid any delays that might come with checking a bag. Mark and Graham has come out with a new Terminal 1 Carry-On that is just as durable as it is chic. What I love most about giving this carry-on as a gift is that you can make it personal. Mark and Graham has a wide variety of monogram and color options to choose from! I would opt for a navy with white monogram, who’s with me?

I can’t travel without my back up external Mophie charger. Mophies come in a wide variety and colors. I personally like the XL version which provides up to two full charges for your iPhone – essential when you’re on a long flight! Make sure to get this version as I’ve noticed Amazon put several refurbished options on their website which can get confusing! In order to keep all of my chargers in place, I also like to travel with this leather wire roll up. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I have all of my chargers loose in my purse!

Whenever I travel, I like to be as comfortable as possible. This means cashmere pants (a new discovery for me!), APL sneakers (seriously obsessed with), and a comfortable cardigan because I’m always cold on planes and trains.

Other great travel gift ideas include this passport case, this worldwide travel adapter, these seersucker travel bags or this weekender which would make for a great gift for her, or him! Last but not least, I always like to take a peek at Shopbop’s travel accessories whenever I’m searching for travel gift ideas since they have a wide variety!

I’ve linked to all of my previous gift guides below. Happy Shopping! Xo. Lauren

2017 Gift Guide Series | For The Hostess
0

The number of holiday parties that take place over these next few months can be overwhelming! I always think it’s important to come prepared with a hostess gift whenever you’re attending a party at someone else’s house. A hostess gift doesn’t have to expensive and can certainly be personal! Today I’ve rounded up the best hostess gifts to shop this party season.

A small Diptyque candle is always a good idea – I prefer the roses scent! Williams-Sonoma has two great coaster options – these gold rimmed coasters and these white marble coasters which both are under $25 dollars! A hostess can never have too many wood salad severs. Last but not least, this Williams-Sonoma mulling spices gift set would make such a nice hostess gift if  your budget is around $100 dollars.

The Ralph Lauren Mansion | Holiday Windows & Decor
0

Processed with VSCO with e4 preset

Visiting the flagship Ralph Lauren Mansion located on 72nd and Madison is one of my favorite past time activities to do on the weekends. Seriously, if you’ve never visited either the flagship men’s or woman’s stores,  you must add it to your list the next time you visit New York!

Last weekend, Amy and I went to brunch at Flora Bar located in the Met Breuer Museum and then walked down to the mansions to take a peek at the holiday windows and decor. We first popped in the men’s mansion to take in all of the plaid trimmings.  I love the dark cherry wood that’s incorporated throughout the 5 floors in addition to all of the black and white polo photos.

After we walked all of the floors over at the men’s mansion, we crossed the street to take in he holiday windows over at the women’s mansion! They were gorgeous and full of flocked white garlands and silver trimmings. The mannequins displayed in the windows and throughout the women’s mansion were wearing polo bear heads to celebrate the Polo Bear this holiday season.

What was truly spectacular about this year’s holiday decor is that Ralph incorporated white flocked trees on each level of the mansion so if you look out the window from the women’s mansion, you can see the white flocked tree over at the men’s mansion!

The best part about visiting the Ralph Lauren Mansion is seeing how the RL team decorated the home floor located on the 4th level. One trend I will be incorporating in my own decor this year is mixing blue and white ginger jars with the classic tartan plaid blankets and table clothes. I also need to get my hands on some traditional gold hurricanes. I found these Arlington Hurricane‘s at Pottery Barn which are a great affordable option.
