Just in case you thought Lauren Conrad was slowing down, we’re here to remind you that she’s not. Aside from causing googly-eyed teenage boys to go all jelly legs at the mere sight of her topless Glamour cover shoot (believe me, I witnessed it fo’ realsies at the local Duane Reade), she went on an African safari adventure, and popped out the Paper Crown fall lookbook all, seemingly, while we were eating cold tacos on our lunch hour. Does any of this surprise you? It shouldn’t, because Lauren Conrad is a business mogul, y’all, and she’s way past the whole ex-Hillsie thing. In fact, just to prove her point even further, she went ahead and wrote another novel, The Fame Game, probably half a second before I typed this. (I jest! But not. She probably penned some poetic prose while sewing a quilted kaftan minidress at the same time, too.) And you know something else? She’s still slaying it style-wise. I mean, check out this stellar maxi dress right here.
We’re going to go ahead and decree this Athena Maxi Dress by Heartloom the Perfect Spring Dress. The black and tan nature-inspired print is interesting and not over-the-top, and we like that LC feminized it by adding a thicker black ribbon around the waist improving upon the simple drawstring the dress comes with. Also, there’s major versatility with the shape. Toss a cropped black jacket and add some heeled booties to make this more cool weather friendly or add some killer black sandal heels, a messy updo and bright lipstick for a summer wedding or party. Heck, you can take this baby to prom! *sigh* You threw down the fash-gauntlet yet again, LC, and we can do nothing but offer our continued collective applause for both inspiring our springtime dress game and goal-oriented productivity.
