Lauren Conrad Interview in NYC

Lauren Conrad Chats Fun Summer Plans and Having "Awesome" Friends

Lauren Conrad arrived at LAX.

Lauren Conrad arrived back home on the West Coast last night after a busy promotional day in NYC. We caught up with Lauren at the Downy pop-up laundromat, where she revealed her new partnership with the fabric softener brand. Lauren's busy with many different endeavors between designing for her clothing line and unveiling her first-ever bedding collection for Kohl's, but we got a chance to chat with her at a press day in the Big Apple yesterday. Lauren told us about her fun upcoming Summer plans, her advice for staying grounded after achieving fame at a young age, and more. Read on for highlights from our sit-down with LC:

  • On her fun Summer plans: "We're going to Nantucket for a week in July and you know it's really preppy there. I already had fun shopping for that trip. I have a bunch of dresses that I got, there's a lot of conversational pieces and fun colors."
  • On keeping her bedroom cozy with her pups: "Honestly, for me a bedroom is made by the bedding. I like a lot of pillows on the bed; I like it to be really cozy with soft fabrics and not too fussy. My old duvet cover was silk and it was dry clean only. It was a light color and I felt like I was always being really careful on the bed and once one of the pups jumped up, there would be little paw prints. So I kind of like no-fuss, really pretty, really romantic bedding."
  • Her advice for staying grounded after achieving fame early on: "I have awesome friends so that really made a difference for me. That is the difference I see with working in the industry and living in LA, it's really surrounding yourself with good people."
  • How she stays chic during the hot days of Summer: "In the Summer, I mostly live in a really easy A-line dress; I love just a pleated cotton dress. That is my Summer wardrobe."
