Thanks to everyone who voted in the last Kohl’s Style Challenge where Jeanette and Anna showed off their best takes on day to night style using pieces from my LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s. Today’s challenge is a big one. And the stakes are high. The winner of this final challenge will be crowned the official LaurenConrad.com Guest Blogger and will win the Grand Prize!
Without further ado, let me tell you about the final fashion face-off…
This last challenge in the Kohl’s Blogger Contest puts both ladies’ blogging skills to the test. First, we asked Jeanette and Anna write a few paragraphs about themselves and their sense of style. We also asked them how the LC Lauren Conrad collection fits into this sense of style and had them put together an outfit that embodies their personal style… Here’s what they turned in:
Anna of Fash Boulevard says…
Girly, colorful, and fun, not only describes my personal style, but also my outlook on life. I have fallen in love with the flirty and versatile LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s. With an array of on-trend designs like the Platform Dress Sandals and gorgeous Filigree Cuff Bracelet, the collection not only blends seamlessly with my wardrobe, but also offers accessible, affordable designs that can add a little Cali chic style to every girl’s life. Growing up on the east coast, I often found myself feeling restricted by the small town style that surrounded me. During high school, I remember watching “The Hills” wide eyed, imagining a life I never thought was possible for myself. When college rolled around, I decided to major in fashion and turn what seemed like an impossible dream into the adventure of a lifetime.
After school, I was lucky enough to land an internship in LA which led to a dream job. Unfortunately, the week before Christmas they let our entire team of girls go and I was suddenly stranded. Determined to not give up on my dream of becoming an author and accessory designer, I launched Fash Boulevard as a way to document my journey. This is only the very beginning of my adventure and every day I wake up excited for the opportunities that each day may hold. I’ve always seen Fash Boulevard as a platform to share my story, while illustrating seasonal trends and providing affordable pieces to help recreate popular celebrity ensembles. My goal is to help my readers find their unique style and achieve a truly fabulous wardrobe that will give them the confidence to chase their dreams. The fact that I’m on a website ran by the girl who inspired me so many years ago, only further proves that dreams really do come true.
Jeanette of J’s Everyday Fashion says…
I’m J and my blog, J’s Everyday Fashion, is all about making fashion accessible, realistic and something all of us feel welcome to enjoy! As a little girl, I was completely enamored with magazines and in college I majored in journalism. I started J’s Everyday Fashion because I’m passionate about bringing more realistic resources to fashion media, and I wanted a place where women could get free help with their style questions. I lost my corporate marketing job due to the economy about a year ago, and I’ve been doing J’s full-time (plus freelance writing and fashion gigs) ever since. There is nothing I love more than empowering women to try something new, and to look and feel their best!
When it comes to my personal style, I love color and I love experimenting with trends! The LC Lauren Conrad Collection is my go-to when I want a girlie, ballet-inspired or boho look. My favorite pieces are the ruffled tops and flowy skirts, and I like pairing them with structured pieces from my closet. Living in Florida, I’m always in skirts, platform heels, and a blazer or long sleeve top to balance out short hemlines, so you will see me rocking an outfit like this one often. The LC Lauren Conrad Platform Dress Sandals are ideal for this outfit because they are comfortable, and the neutral color balances out the bright tones. They feel like “me” and are the perfect addition to my closet!
