Even though Hillsie Lauren Conrad writes a business column for Forbes, dishes out beauty tips on her website, and has an ever-growing clothing/shoe/jewelry line for Kohl's, she has made it pretty clear that Paper Crown is still, above all, her "passion project". The collection, which first debuted its fall 2011 line earlier this year, features tons of whimsical maxi dresses, cropped leather jackets, and holiday-ready ensembles. We were SO STOKED to find that her collection landed at Nordstrom so everyone can purchase her items with ease, but we already wanted to know WHAT'S NEXT?! Then BAM, her pre-spring 2012 lookbook lands in our inbox, and we're PUMPED. Her warm-weather pieces feature pale pink mesh ruched dresses, work-ready pleated skirts, and billowy floral maxis. Even peep the photo above for a taste of what's to come—nautical striped boatneck sweaters and shorts, floppy hats, and printed miniskirts. Funnnn! Check out the entire lookbook below for her entire pre-spring 2012 collection (we call dibs on the platform pumps!).
