Welcome to the second installment of my friend feature series!! Today you all get to meet my friend Lauren. Lauren and I were in the same sorority, and we met freshman year. She’s so sweet, and has the brightest smile! Her outfits always look bomb, and she has more of a preppy style that she can totally pull off. During our shoot we did 3 separate looks that really showcase her style + bring out a little holiday spirit. 🙂
This first outfit that Lauren put together is super cute and definitely fits her preppy style! Lauren told me she’s been absolutely obsessed with turtlenecks right now, so we featured them in 2 of the outfits. She’s seriously such a natural in front of the camera, too. These are some of my absolute favorite shots we got!
This next outfit that we shot is super classic! Perfect for a holiday look.

This last look is my absolute favorite!! Lauren looks absolutely stunning in red. This outfit is super cute for holidays, too- it would be perfect for Christmas Eve!

Now for my favorite part: the interview!
Tell us a little about yourself!
Hello! My name is Lauren and I’m a girl from California who currently lives in Texas, and whose heart is in the Northeast! When I’m not studying, I love to sail, travel, shop, and reread my Harry Potter books 🙂
In 3 words, how would you describe your style?
I would say classic, preppy, and comfy. It’s always a win when I can combine all three!
Who are your favorite people to go to for style inspiration?
I get inspiration from everywhere, but my top inspirational ladies would have to be Kate Middleton because I adore how beautiful and put together she always is, Sarah Vickers for her classic preppy style, and Lauren Conrad for whenever I want to channel my inner California girl!
Where are your favorite go-to places to shop?
My go-to stores would have to be Vineyard Vines, Ralph Lauren, and J Crew for when I’m going for more of a northeastern prep kind of look, Kate Spade for jewelry and purses (and the occasional splurge on their cute coats!), and TJ Maxx for whenever I want to find cute shoes for a great price!
Any trends that you’re loving right now?
Lately I have seen a lot of outfits with a nod to the nineties, and my favorite comeback look would have to be wearing flannels around my waist! It’s perfect for those Fall days in Texas when it’s not very cold and not too hot, but you still want to look like you’re dressing for Fall!
What are 3 products you can’t live without?
My beauty must haves include Batiste Dry Shampoo, Urban Decay’s eyeshadow in the color “Sin”, and my Chanel Les Beiges powder!
Where can people find you?
Hope all of you have enjoyed getting to know Lauren + about her style! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the next one 🙂
