Lauren Conrad On So Mini Ways, Yahoo Life’s Parenting Series

The Hills captured a 20-something Lauren Conrad at a crossroads in terms of her career and personal relationships. More than a decade later, the former MTV star has found her footing as a married mom of two, fashion designer, author and all-around lifestyle influencer. And while Conrad has left the drama of reality TV behind, there’s no shortage of wild moments for the Laguna Beach vet, thanks to the sons she shares with husband William Tell.

“The biggest challenge of having two little boys is that things get wild in my house, which I’m learning to adjust to,” Conrad, mom to Liam, 5, and Charlie, 2 1/2, tells Yahoo Life’s So Mini Ways. “I already knew that I couldn’t really own nice things because everything gets destroyed in my home, but it’s fine; I was, like, ready for that. But yeah, things are getting really wild. It’s still fun and playful, but they’re doing laps around my house, they’re trying to ride bikes in there.”

Conrad has learned to roll with the punches. She credits motherhood — and the chaos that can come with it — for helping her be “a little more relaxed about things.”

“I think I’ve learned to kind of let go and — not go with the flow, because I’m not that chill — just be a little more laidback and understand you can’t plan everything,” she says. “Like, you kind of have to figure things out as you go.”

One thing Conrad doesn’t really sweat is meal time. The designer counts herself lucky that her boys enjoy fruits and vegetables and aren’t overly picky; “I never had to force them into eating vegetables,” she says. But it also helps to draw on a fellow mom’s advice that “as long as you can get one really solid, healthy meal into them during the day, you don’t have to stress about the other meals.” For Conrad, that’s meant making her sons breakfast smoothies that are loaded with vegetables. And because her household is dairy-free, she swaps out oat milk.

“I’ve always just used it as an alternative to regular milk,” says Conrad, who has contributed a series of recipes in partnership with Planet Oat Oatmilk and its Taste Exploration Summer Sampling Tour. “When I’m baking, I always use it. My kids drink it from the glass.”

While the former Teen Vogue intern’s latest pieces from her long-running LC Lauren Conrad womenswear collection for Kohl’s include smart citrus-print short suits and ruffled sundresses, she says a combination of mom life and working from home has made her own day-to-day style more “casual” lately. “I’m not wearing a lot of dry-clean-only pieces,” she says.

While she’s no longer sharing her life on the small screen, Conrad enjoys connecting with others on social media. She’s careful to find a balance when it comes to posting about her sons, but notes, “your kids become your life and that’s my life, so I do want to share tidbits of it.”

The only crying she does these days comes courtesy of her boys — in a good way. Conrad recalls tearing up after recently overhearing Liam console his younger brother.

“He was just being so sweet and that got me,” the proud mom says. “Their love is so special.”

As she savors the experience of raising her sons, Conrad leans on other mom friends for support and advice. She credits that network for helping her feel more confident as a parent and more forgiving of herself if things aren’t going smoothly.

“I feel like moms are really hard on themselves,” she says. “Just the fact that you’re worrying shows that you care. So I think like, just do your best.”


LC Lauren Conrad Collection July 2022

Hello July, or as I like to call it, my favorite month for quintessential summer styles. While I love an eye-catching print, my heart lies with a neutral piece that I can wear and re-wear as the seasons go by. I love a color palette of soft and muted colors, much like the location of my latest photoshoot for this month in Lake Arrowhead, which had the most gorgeous view of California mountains and endless scenic hikes. My new LC Lauren Conrad July collection is inspired by that same softer color palette and the beauty of California’s landscapes. In this collection, you’ll find calming and relaxed styles that are great for workwear, dinner parties, everyday outfits, and even weekend trips. I love multi-purposes pieces as much as you do, so if you’d like a look at my latest collection, keep scrolling…

Whew, this collection. While I love every collection I create, this one feels truly special.

My new LC Lauren Conrad collection is essentially your new coastal vacation wardrobe.

Lauren Conrad’s First Fragrance LOVED by Lauren Conrad

Exciting news, everyone. I can finally reveal my latest project with you all: I created my very first fragrance! After all this time, I’m thrilled to introduce LOVED by Lauren Conrad, available now on This Eau de Parfum was years in the making, and I’m looking forward to sharing LOVED by Lauren Conrad’s journey and how special it is to me.

I’m sure you’re wondering what the perfume smells like, right? Well, if you know me and my perfume journey, then you know I love florals. Florals evoke that same femininity and softness I wanted LOVED to embody, so it has top notes of sparkling grapefruit, white tea, peony petals, and magnolia; mid notes of pink rose, tuberose, and gardenia; and base notes of lily, jasmine sambac, and sheer musks. I said florals, didn’t I?

When I wear this scent, it brings me back to the first few dates I had with my husband. To me, it’s love in a bottle, and I’m so happy that I finally get to share a perfume that reminds me of my favorite memories. I usually layer it on with the corresponding LOVED Body Lotion too, so that the scent wafts and lasts all day.
