Lauren Conrad: There are a few key pieces I’d recommend to give your work wardrobe an updated, summery feel. For a chic, office-appropriate outfit, opt for a swingy skirt or cropped trousers, paired with a peplum top and pointed pumps. And since layering is key when it comes to summer work attire, polish off your office look with a pretty cardigan or floral printed blazer, like this one from my LC Lauren Conrad collection.
LC: Fruit. It's refreshing, healthy and tastes amazing during the summer months.
LC: I don’t, but I like to think it has a nice flow.
LC: I always loved English, and I think that was one of the reasons I was so excited to become an author myself. I also loved my ASB classes. I was always a part of the student body and loved planning our schools events.
LC: All of the above. My school was smaller and not as cliquey. I was very involved in school activities and sports. I played soccer, tennis and softball.
LC: Deadlines, schedules and careful planning. When it’s your business, it’s all on your shoulders, but I am just so grateful to be able to do what I love and work on such an amazing line like Paper Crown.
LC: Know what you goals are ahead of time, make sure you're following your passion and don’t start unless you can give it 110 percent. It’s hard work, but it’s worth it in the end.
LC: I like to think I'm a pretty fun boss. I'm in a creative industry, so we like to have fun.
LC: Our offices are very girly — lots of candles, and lace and tufted furniture. Modern with a vintage feel.
LC: I continue to work on my line LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, designing for my own line Paper Crown, I just released my eighth book, Infamous, and I'm designing my line of sustainable bags called XO(eco) for Blue Avocado. I try to keep busy.
LC: When I'm in writing mode, sadly I don’t read as much as I would like. When you see words on a page all day while writing you tend to not want to see them during your free time.
I did just start an amazing novel that I can't put down. It's called The Never List.
LC: I believe in a work-life balance and especially like having fun with my friends after a busy work week.
Entertaining is also such a big part of my life. I try to host a dinner party or two each month to catch up with family and friends. We try all different types of cuisines and cocktails.
Lately, I’ve been mixing up some Malibu Island Spiced cocktails to add to the menu. My all-time favorite is definitely Malibu Spiced Lanai Bound. It makes me feel like I'm on a tropical island!
LC: I need to think about that one...
