Yep, it's Lauren Conrad back out and about and providing us with a pretty fantastic accessory moment. After the furor that surrounded her days on The Hills and then her more recent book publicity tours, she's been fairly quiet (though no less stylish). Absence certainly does seem to make the heart grow fonder, though, if the cheer we let out when seeing this snap was to be believed.
Her relatively simple outfit consisted of a denim shirt, black skinnies, and comfortable flats. That classic palette was the perfect backdrop for a pretty fantastic bag, though . . . all the better for us to covet it for ourselves! She carried the Cynnie sling backpack ($545) from Elizabeth and James, and it's (dangerously) available for shopping right now.
