These days, Kristin Cavallari is a put-together mother of two with a successful shoe line, but as is the case for many adults, she’s a far cry from her high school self (we’ll never forget you, black choker). Today, K-Cav tweeted a throwback pic of her very first magazine photo shoot (RIP Teen People), and her fresh-faced smile instantly reminded us of the 17-year-old we once knew and loved (to hate). Check out some of our favorite old school shots of the California-turned-Chicago girl, and tell us if you miss the “Laguna Beach“-era Kristin.
