When it comes party planning, in LC I trust. Brands have been dropping their new celebrity-heavy winter campaigns left and right, and Kohl’s and Lauren Conrad's holiday collection is jumping right on that horse-drawn, sleigh ride, bandwagon.
The LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s line has been around for a few years now but her new winter 2014 collection looks about as fresh as newly fallen snow. Sure, there are plenty of those poufy party dresses that the term "holiday collection" has become synonymous with and there’s enough tulle to satisfy even this princess-obsessed girl, but what makes Conrad’s line a standout are her chic separates. Tops full of feminine frills and bottoms with cool jacquard twists are a festive step away from the generic holiday dress. And any of those cozy, Graphic Lurex Sweaters just make me want to curl up in front of my nonexistent fireplace with some artisanal hot chocolate (I'm just assuming that's what LC drinks...).
The promo images of the collection feature a very merry Conrad doing all the typical gift-wrapping, eggnog drinking, and mistletoe hanging. But this is the effortlessly California chic Lauren Conrad we’re talking about, so of course she’s putting your Christmas tree decorating skills to shame. Feeling inspired, though? Here’s how you can have yourself a Very Merry LC Christmas.
1. Melt Any and All Snow You See
Because there is zero in this ad. It messes with our beachy California waves, duh.
2. While You Gift-Wrap, Wear Heels So High You Can See the North Pole From Where You Stand
Prove to the world that petite, little elves aren't the only ones who can ribbon curl.
3. Hang Mistletoe By Yourself In An Empty House
Because you're a strong independent woman who don't need no man (or furniture).
4. Bake Christmas Cookies and Make Eggnog Dressed in White
You're a brave soul, LC...
5. After All is Said and Done, Pile All Your Gifts
into the Engine of Your Car
I mean, why not...
