Not only is Lucy Hale a beloved actress (we miss you, Pretty Little Liars!) and an incredible singer, but if you've stopped by her Instagram account for even a second, you've probably also fallen in love with her style and always-incredible beauty looks. So with the launch of the POPSUGAR at Kohl's Collection, Lucy stopped by our New York City pop-up, where she revealed her favorite dress from the collection, what pieces her Pretty Little Liars character Aria would've rocked, and much more.

"I love the cherry print — with this [dress], I could throw on a jean jacket, or a leather jacket, or you could even put on little moto boots if you wanted to dress it up a little bit," Lucy said. As for queen-of-making-bold-fashion-choices Aria Montgomery? She thinks she would've gone straight for the patterns: "She loved her stripes, and she loved her bold patterns. So I feel like she would go for the stripes, but she would do something weird like put a striped cardigan over cherry print. She was all about mixing, and matching, and making her own rules."

How Lucy Hale Powers Her Happy

Guilty pleasure?
I have three huge candy drawers, so we'll say candy.
Favorite curse word?
F*ck. [laughter] It's my favorite.
Happy place?
My happy place is in my big, comfy bed with my dog, Elvis.
The one thing you can't leave home without?
One thing I can't leave home without? Ooh, my cell phone? [laughter] That's a bad answer but it's true. We need it.
Favorite junk food?
French fries with ranch dressing.
Favorite workout?
Ooh, SoulCycle.
Favorite splurge?
I bought a Gucci bag today. That was exciting.
Feel-good music?
I love show tunes. So lately it's been the Dear Evan Hanson soundtrack, which is just — I mean, that's a really sad play. But in general, I love show tunes. They make me happy.
Most prized possession?
Actually, not wearing it right now, but it's a ring from my grandmother. It was passed down from my great-grandmother to my grandmother to me.
First thing you do when you wake up?
First thing I do is — I know it's bad, but I check my phone. Check my phone, then wash my face.
Last thing you do before going to bed?
Check my phone? No, I'm just kidding. [laughter] I've been trying to be better about that, actually. Reading puts me to sleep, so read for a little bit.
Jumpsuit or dress?
Sweater or jean jacket?
Jean jacket. I own more jean jackets than anything else in my closet, like 25.
Who was your first celebrity crush?
Zac Hanson.
What are two things on your nightstand?
I have a rose quartz crystal. I mean, I have a bunch of stuff, but rose quartz crystal and Lucas Papaw cream. It's like chapstick. It's the best chapstick in the world.
What’s your favorite form of self-care?
What's one thing every woman should do in their 20s?
Go on a road trip alone. It sounds dangerous, but it was the best thing I ever did because you just have a lot of time to think, a lot of time. I drove from LA to Vancouver. I mean, obviously, be safe and have pepper spray, but it's cool. It was liberating.
What's one thing on your current bucket list?
I want to go on a safari.
