Hello, ladies! Happy Monday. How was everyone’s weekend? Can you believe October is right around the corner? Since fall is seriously so close, I started creating my fall shopping list. I’m going to share what’s on my list here this week so be sure to check back!
My most recent purchase for fall include some black leather gucci loafers! I had my eye on gucci loafers for quite some time and am so excited to wear them this fall. Although I really wanted the ‘princetown’ slides with the fur, I figured the classic gucci ‘brixton’ loafer is more justifiable (plus, they are much more appropriate for work). You know what I mean?! Since I did my research, I thought I would share the wealth and showcase my favorite pairs that you might like yourself!! Enjoy!
This past week was a whirlwind. I moved out of my first and only apartment I’ve ever lived in here in New York. I moved uptown which only took from 9:30-6p last Thursday. My entire family came into town for my cousins bat mitzvah on Friday. I had my last day of work at my old job – more to come on this soon. I unpacked my life in my new apartment and had events every night this week! So needless to say, I’m so happy I had the majority of this week off from work to regroup.
My cousin’s bat mitzvah was at the Inn at Longshore in Westport, Connecticut. The venue was beautiful right on the water! Andorandack chairs, white linens, hydrangeas everywhere. I want to go back! Hope you guys had a great week and have some fun plans lined up for the weekend! Xo. Lauren

My mom and I stopped at the Ralph Lauren store on Greenwich Ave in Connecticut last Sunday. It’s always a favorite. How pretty is this table set up? #goals
I attended an event at Alexa Hampton‘s private residence on Wednesday night. Her home is seriously so cool. Over time her and her family bought three apartments in the building and connected them over time. I definitely got some inspiration when exploring each and every room!
When I came across Erin Fetherston’s light and airy west coast abode, I knew I had to share. Erin Fetherston was the first presentation I had ever attended at New York Fashion Week. Erin’s style is whimsical and sophisticated and her home is nothing short of fabulous. Flooded in light and layered in texture, this home tour has to be one of my favorites to-date. I’ve included a round up of product at the end so you can get the look! Enjoy!
Now that summer’s over and we’re all getting back into our groove, I’m ready to get back to blogging! In case you are just tuning in, last week I shared that I found an apartment on the Upper East Side. After three years in Murray Hill and limited space I am so excited for this new little adventure of mine. I officially moved last Thursday and today marks the first night I’ll actually sleep here. How exciting, right?!
Well there is so much I need to do including finish unpacking boxes and getting organized but I am diving straight first into Pinterest and design boards. It’s been a little challenging figuring out “the look” I want to go for in my new apartment. If you guys remember my bedroom in my last apartment, it was very nautical / east coast inspired. I have no doubt that this apartment will have the same elements, however, it will be interesting to see how I mix traditional elements into this new design scheme of mine.
Of course I have been browsing blogs, designer portfolios and Pinterest to see what my eye is going to these days. Utah design firm Studio McGee has provided a wealth of inspiration for me lately. I know I’ve blogged about some of Shae’s projects on here before but I love her sense of style. What I think Shae does exceptionally well is mixing metals and materials. And so far, that’s all I know I will be doing myself. I’ve noticed my eye has been going to a whole lot of natural wood pieces, marble, brass and so forth. I know good design takes time but hey, this girl has zero furniture at the moment and I’d like my place to be somewhat together by Christmas!! More to come later this week… Happy Wednesday, my friends! Xo. Lauren
