It's hard to believe our Hills girl Lauren Conrad debuted her Paper Crown collection over a year ago already. Oh, how time flies! We'll never forget the first time we spotted her soft and simple floor-grazing gowns and fun shift dresses, but we have to say, she's come a long way since then. LC released the full fall 2012 lookbook yesterday, and we're actually quite delighted with some of the fresh looks from the budding designer. In one of her ensembles, she plays with a fresh silhouette—she pairs a flouncy floral Wimbledon skirt with a rust-colored bow-cuff blouse. We're digging the brown ankle socks with suede platforms for more of a fall feel. Next up is a super short dotted flirty frock that is begging to be taken out for a bike ride. She paired it with opaque brown tights to make it more winter-ready, but that smize only comes from serious practice. For a dressier nighttime look, Lauren created the Kensington Gown, which features a lace corset bodice and a streamlined pale pink skirt. The bow at the waist adds a touch of whimsy, and suddenly we're wondering why we don't wear barrettes on a daily basis.

In another outfit, she goes '60s chic in a collarless fitted jacket with a bow belt paired with a soft printed skirt. When you're feeling extra daring, opt for her burgundy cut-out shoulder maxi dress with a fitted waist and neck tie. We could totally see sporting this piece straight from summer into fall—I mean, how breezy does this frock look? If you want to opt for an edgier ensemble, LC has a leather pants outfit that'll be perfect for an adventurous night out. She paired super-skinny trousers with a muted green lace shirt with a sweetheart neckline. For added structure, she threw on a bold-shouldered blazer and sky-high platforms. The fall 2012 collection won't hit stores until August 2012, which gives you PLENTY of time to pick out your favorite pieces until then. Or, you know, you could always swipe some of her springy new Kohl's goodies in the meantime.
