Today, I'm excited to be a part of an amazing post series called The Woman Project! Each blogger participating chooses a woman we identify with and pay tribute to her on our blog by explaining why they inspire us and channel their style into an outfit. I'm all about role models so I think this series is so empowering and fun!
The woman I am inspired by the most, both by her style and accomplishments, is LAUREN CONRAD. I've been a fan of Lauren since she first appeared on the Reality TV show, Laguna Beach. She was a cute, girl next door who was down to earth and had big dreams. She was the underdog--the girl who was in love with a boy she would never end up with. We were able to follow a big chunk of her life via MTV as she moved from Laguna Beach to The Hills. She experienced heartbreaks, job drama, and backstabbing friends. She was so relatable!
It's amazing to see how far Lauren has come since her Reality TV days. She's written novels, founded The Little Market, runs a blog, traveled the world, gotten engaged, and of course created her own line of apparel. It's so inspiring to be able to see a small town girl like her, accomplish so much in her life at such a young age. I love how despite her fame and fortune, she still holds that girl next door persona that made America fall in love with her in the first place.
Now let's talk about Lauren's style. Seriously, this girl is my fashion guru. You guys have no idea how many of my outfits have been inspired by her. I don't think I've ever seen her wear an outfit that wasn't amazingly perfect! I decided to recreate a super cute spring outfit of hers that is one of my favorites.
Above is a side-by-side comparison of our outfits--What do you guys think? I'm the one on the right if you guys couldn't tell us apart (I mean we're basically twins haha I wish) ;)
