Steal Her Style – The Best Lauren Conrad Outfit


Over the weekend, I stumbled upon some old episodes of The Hills and adored every minute of it. All that drama… Lauren and Brody, Heidi and Spencer, Audrina and Justin Bobby. Back in the day, I remember I watched it every week! So following this little blast from the past, my love of all things Lauren Conrad has been reinvigorated.

She’s well and truly cemented herself as a style icon. I adore that Lauren’s outfits are so easy to wear. One of the best Lauren Conrad outfits is this leopard and black look below – so perfect for fall! Here’s how to steal her style and recreate this gorgeous outfit yourself…

 

Steal Her Style – The Best Lauren Conrad Outfit:
2.  X-Ring (I also love these gold rings)
3.  J.Brand 915 Skinny Jeans – they have over 90 five-star reviews!  (find lots more black skinny jeans here)
5.  Prada Cats Eye Sunglasses (I have these, they’re stunning!)
6.  Moschino Flats (there are so many cute ballet flats here)

 

What do you think of Lauren’s style, is this a look you would wear? I’d also love to know, did you ever watch The Hills too?

One particular outfit and trend seemed to spark a lot of interest (and emails!), so I thought I’d share the look with you today… who loves plaid? I do! It’s a wardrobe must-have for fall and beyond.

Something I adore about having a perfect plaid shirt is the effortless style it can bring. Simply wear a tailored plaid shirt with fabulous jeans, chic sunglasses (these Prada sunglasses are my favorite, they seem to look fabulous on everyone!) and as always, this Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag works with everything (it is the best handbag you will ever own).

I’d love to know, are you mad for plaid too?

The Perfect Plaid Shirt…

Every girl needs a few key pieces in her wardrobe, timeless classics for easy-to-wear style – and the perfect plaid shirt is one of them! My other essentials include an amazing pair of jeans, classic black sunglasses (my go-to’s are the Prada Cats Eye sunglasses, they seem to look fabulous on everyone) and of course, my Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag (gals, if you’re going to invest in one handbag – this is it!).

Add a belt, black heels, gorgeous earrings and you’re good to go! Oh and I always recommend a vibrant lipstick to give your look a little something extra, this YSL Lipstick in #13 Le Orange is Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite – and it quickly became mine (I’m wearing it below).

Steal Her Style – Nicole Richie Outfit Favorite


I’m always inspired by what celebrities are wearing and Nicole Richie outfit’s are consistently on point. From a somewhat rocky start, she’s firmly cemented herself as a fashion icon. I believe that great style is truly timeless and this outfit below was worn by Nicole a few years ago – proving well chosen pieces never go out of style and are worth the investment.

Every girl should own a chic white blouse, fabulous blue jeans and classic heels. Here’s your ultimate styling inspiration to create an effortlessly polished outfit… I’d love to know, is this a look you’d wear? I definitely would – I adore it!

Style Sessions – How To Wear A Nautical Outfit


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m sharing inspiration on how to wear a nautical outfit… without looking like you’re off to a fancy dress party on the high seas.

Nothing says summer like navy and white stripes! So for a chic #ootd, pair a stripe top with a polished white blazer, your favorite blue jeans and add some personality with a little burst of color (this monogram clutch is my favorite). It’s all about effortless elegance… oh and a cute puppy never hurts! I love when my Ollie joins us here.
