See what's in store this month on

Happy August everyone, and welcome to one of my favorite topics that we have here on As you’ve probably noticed over the years, my team and I tack themes along to each month, letting you know what to expect when it comes to content and conversation. One of my favorite ways to get to know new and existing readers on the blog is to answer Ask Lauren questions that I receive in my inbox. Sometimes these questions pertain to the fashion industry and big career moves, but sometimes they strike a more personal note, too. From friendships, to breakups, to knowing if you’re partner is the one, I love answering just about any question you guys throw at me. So in light of this month’s theme, you’ll be seeing a lot of fresh content that you have been asking for.

With summer in full swing, it’s impossible not to focus at least a little bit on refreshing treats that you can make in the comfort of your own kitchen. First up we have homemade lobster rolls followed by a few delicious fruit and chopped veggie salads to cool you off on a hot day. Plus what better way to chill out than with a peach margarita? In addition to seasonal foods, there will be plenty of seasonal fashion to go around as well. From mixing prints to styling pretty peasant tops, I’m sharing fashion advice that you may not have already seen here on

In true Ask Me Anything August fashion, I’ll be answering some of your most pressing questions here on the blog. So far I have three tips for staying in the moment, seven tricks to make your pedicure last three weeks, and how to maintain friendships with people at different stages in life. I don’t want to give too much away, so you’ll have to stay tuned!

Do you have any Ask Lauren questions that you’d like to see me answer on the blog this month?

Let me know what they are in the comments!

XO Lauren
