Get the Look: Lauren Conrad

Untitled #41
Lauren Conrad is my style icon and role model in life – I am inspired by everything she does, whether that’s starting her own clothing line or taking a beautiful Instagram photo. When it comes to fashion, she always looks chic and stylish. I recently saw this look in Darling Magazine and love how simple it is while also incorporating trendy elements, such as the asymmetrical skirt. It’s a great business casual outfit for summer. To get the look, start with a basic black tank top layered under a beige blazer. Pair with a white asymmetrical skirt or skort (yes, skorts are back!). I never would have thought about pairing the white and light beige hues, but it looks crisp and classy. Finish the look with some strappy black heels. When it comes to beauty, a berry-colored lip gloss will pop against the neutral tones of the ensemble. To complete the polished, yet casual look, pull hair back into a sleek ponytail.

Lobster Ravioli with Cream Sauce


Never go to Trader Joe’s hungry. I came home with so many meals that I would not have otherwise picked out, like this lobster ravioli. Even though I grew up in Seattle, I had never really tried seafood until my boyfriend, Rob, introduced me to it. I realized I had been missing out because now I love sushi, lobster and all kinds of seafood! I recently tried lobster mac and cheese from a food truck at Life is Beautiful, which was amazing, so I figured this pasta was worth a try. I wasn’t sure what sauce to pair it with, so I Googled some simple sauces and came across this recipe from Kitchen Illiterate, which was made with this ravioli in mind. It was perfect and I will use it with future pastas, too.


  • 1/2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • salt to taste


  1. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. When hot, add oil and butter. When butter is melted and bubbly, add garlic and stir for about 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  2. Whisk in the heavy cream and bring to a boil, whisking continually. Add a pinch of salt and continue to whisk until sauce has thickened to the consistency you prefer. Pour over pasta and toss until coated.
