Island Vibes: Packing For The Bahamas


Source: Stephanie Sterjovski

So…exciting news you guys!! I’m headed to the Bahamas TOMORROW. This is a pretty last minute trip with friends (aren’t those the best?) so it’s crunch time for packing. If you live in New York, you understand my pain of having to switch out wardrobes. Winter is currently in full swing so I have to find/dig out all of my favorite summer pieces from the coat closet. Not that I’m complaining or anything… BUT this trip makes me want to… you guessed it – SHOP. Can you blame a girl? Here are a few pretty things I have on my list.

Although this is a major wish-list item, I’m seriously obsessed with this top. I recently picked up this vibrant clutch (and here’s another great option). A girl can never have too many straw hats insert option A or option B. Loefler Randall can do no wrong in my book – how cute are these flats? A pom pom tote because, duh. And a Mara Hoffman suit for the win.


We’re staying at the Atlantis in Nassau. Have you been? Taking any and ALL recommendations!!! Be sure to follow my island vibes all weekend long on Instagram (@_laurennelson_) and on Snapchat (laurennelsonny). Xo. Lauren

Me and my girlfriends have been talking a lot about hand bags as of late and for no reason, really. From Chanel to Celine to Chloe, which brand would you invest in? The Chloe Drew Bag was quite easily style blogger’s “it” bag last year, however, I’m still obsessing over this bag. I love the shape, gold hardware and sleek cross-body design. For me, I rather invest in a handbag that I know will last season after season. So today I’m rounding up the prettiest of Chloe Drew bags for your viewing pleasure. Shop my favorites below! Xx.

Instagram Stories, Stylish People & Places: Lucy Laucht







Today I’m pretty excited to launch what I hope to be a new weekly feature I’m calling “Instagram Stories: Stylish People & Places.” A.k.a Who to follow on Instagram.

A few weeks ago you may remember I posted about my top 10 favorite interior design pinners to follow on Pinterest. Don’t worry, you can read it right here if you missed it. Anywho, you guys seemed to have liked it and I thought it would be fun to do an Instagram edition. You know.. because you know our worlds revolve around Instagram and because who doesn’t need more inspiration on a daily basis? I’m hoping to feature some of my personal favorite stylish people you may not be following or who are more under-the-radar Instagrammers at the moment.

So what better way to kick things off than with the one and only Lucy Laucht. If you don’t follow her already, get ready for some serious wanderlust. From the beaches of Australia to the best floors around the world (I also have a thing with floors), Lucy Laucht’s insta game is strong. When Lucy isn’t sharing her serious aesthetic with the world, you can find her doing social for @Jcrew or blogging over at theseforeignlands.com. Be sure to follow along with Lucy’s Instagram adventures right here.

So what do you think? Yay or nay for this new weekly feature? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!! Xo. Lauren
