Team LC for Life

Some people quote lines from movies. I quote lines from Lauren Conrad. It’s not just that, either. I use them in normal conversation. I’m sure you probably know some of the quotes I’m talking about if you ever watched Laguna Beach or The Hills {pre-Kristin Cav days, of course} Did I mention I’m Team LC all the way?

Anyway, some days I’ll be in a certain situation or something will happen to me and immediately I think back to an episode of Laguna or The Hills regarding something Lauren had said. It’s kind of funny actually.

Here are some of my most-used quotes as of late:

The above is one of my favorite scenes, by the way. Who can tell me who she’s talking to? Ready, go.

Then, of course, whenever I think about forgiveness, I think about this one:

In all seriousness, Lauren has always been my “go-to” girl for so many things:

1. Amazing life lessons like some of the above ;)
2. Make-up. Let’s just say I learned the cat-eye from her years ago.
3. Style. Especially in college. I’m pretty sure we had some of the same outfits.
4. Hair. Again, throughout the years, I found myself trying so many of her hairstyles :)
5. Life. Lauren has never given up on her dreams and certainly never expected anyone to just hand anything to her. She worked hard {and sure, maybe MTV helped get her name out there} but I truly believe she has natural talent and a passion for what she’s good at.

Let me just clarify that she is so much more than a “fashion icon” to me. I don’t really have “fashion icons” because, as I’ve gotten older, I believe style should reflect who you are as an individual and be less about following trends. However, Lauren’s style is definitely still a great inspiration. SHE is an inspiration and one of the few women I’ve really looked up to for years. {Not to mention her awesome quotes, right?}

Her books have been a guilty pleasure of mine, I adore her line at Kohl’s, and have loved seeing all the new projects she is taking on in her career.

As someone who is the same age as me, I think she is a beautiful, wonderful example and role model.

I can’t wait to share more of my favorite “Laurenisms” with you :)

Oh, and would you believe me if I said I had a “Team LC” shirt? I can neither confirm nor deny it…

Team LC all the way :) Lauren has the best fashion and make-up styles!!! I love her. These little video clips cracked me up and made me seriously want to have a Laguna Beach/The Hills marathon... Ha!

Kate said...

Oh my gosh, love her. I used to take her picture to my stylist for hair inspiration. To be fair, however, I was always a Lo fan. When I lived in New York I ran into Whitney Port at a restaurant and after that insisted that we go there all the time cause I kept hoping to run into more of the cast or some other famous people.

Also, I regularly say "Lauren didn't go to Paris" to people. Or I would if they would know I was referring to The Hills and not look at me like I was crazy.

Lauren said...

This makes me miss The Hills and Laguna SO bad!!! I'm so glad I own every season of both haha! :) I read all her books and love her clothes! LC, Audrina and Whitney are my favorites! :)

Megan said...

Oh goodness, I love her! I completely understand when you say you relate your own life to her situations....like a couple weeks ago when I was trying to decide whether I should spend next semester in London or not, and my boyfriend was really the only thing keeping me from going, guess what I thought about?? Don't make Lauren's Paris mistake!
And she is definitely a wonderful role model in soooo many aspects :) Love love love her!

And I ended up choosing London ;)

Alexandria said...

Lauren Conrad is my idol, right below Audrey Hepburn.

And it's Jason. Duh ;)

Miss K said...

i've always thought lc was boring and never watched her shows. i just like how she dresses :D

lauren said...

she seems like such a beautiful person on the inside, and most definitely beautiful on the outside. a perfect role model for girls, in my opinion!

Britt said...

I think she is awesome and has done a great job making herself a brand.

Sidenote: My family have family friends who have lived in LB for 35+ years. The daughters went to HS with them and played Tennis together. Last time I was there {4 years ago}. Kristin's season was actual filmed in a home their family built and one of their daughters actually dated Steven. At the time I thought it was the coolest thing. haha

Lindsay said...

I've always loved her too... even back in the Laguna days!

She was talking to Jason, right??
