Back in February, I had the opportunity to spend Valentine’s Day gallivanting around Santa Monica in some of the dreamiest pieces from Lauren Conrad’s latest spring 2017 collection for her clothing line, Paper Crown. I’m not going to lie, I was a little worried about shooting spring looks in the dead of winter, but we lucked out with beautiful weather and a beachside location that made for the perfect backdrop to showcase these warm weather looks. If you look closely, you might recognize some of Santa Monica’s iconic spots, like the Santa Monica pier, Georgian Hotel, Ocean Ave and the Ivy at the Shore. It was so fun getting to shoot around my neighborhood, and I still pinch myself over the fact that I get to call this coastal town home. I’ll take any excuse to play tourist in my own backyard when it means a sun-filled day complete with ferris wheel rides, cotton candy and arcade games.
I was smitten with the new spring collection after seeing it online, but trust me when I tell you that the pieces are even more beautiful in person. With summer around the corner and a busy wedding season ahead filled with with engagement parties, bridal showers and bachelorette weekends, I’d been feeling a bit panicked over what to wear, so it was such a relief to find a collection filled with so many beautiful options that work for a variety of occasions. Plus, all of the prints and colors in this collection pair beautifully together, so you can rework your favorite pieces into different looks by mixing and matching them.
It’s easy to see how much thought went into designing this collection, as each piece features unique details, but the Tucson Dress has to be my favorite. The feminine silhouette hugs all the right places and the coral poppy print against the soft powder blue is a match made in spring heaven. If you’re looking for something to wear as a guest to a spring or summer wedding, or in need of bridesmaids dresses for your own wedding, this would be perfect.
