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."
