Kristin Cavallari has come a long way since Laguna Beach. Nowadays, she’s designing shoes for Chinese Laundry, providing lifestyle and new parent tips on her namesake app and working on her upcoming book, Blancing In Heels, set to hit stores next March. And those are just some of her career highlights! She’s married to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and they have two sons with a daughter one the way. Oh, and did we mention she’s only 28-years-old?
We recently had the change to catch up with Kristin after an event for her latest Chinese Laundry collection. She dished on her fall must-haves, how she wears heels while pregnant and more!
SHEfinds: Tell us about your new collection for Chinese Laundry.
Kristin Cavallari: Fall is my favorite time for shoes because it’s all about boots and booties! Every collection I do is on-trend and classic, and this collection is no exception. I have thigh-high boots, a fringe bootie, pointed-toe flats, and a wedge bootie, plus many more styles.
SF: What’s the first thing you buy for fall?
KC: I’m such a hat girl, so I typically buy a new one once the weather starts changing. I think a simple outfit with a great pair of booties and a hat is incredibly chic and easy to put together.
SF: What shoe style does every girl absolutely need in her closet this fall?
KC: Thigh-high boots! They are trendy, flattering on every body type, and super sexy.
SF: What’s the most comfortable pair of shoes you own?
KC: My Birkenstocks! I boycotted them for so long but finally caved and got a pair this past summer. My feet loved me. They were so comfortable; I would wear them all day around the house.
SF: How often do you wear heels while pregnant?
KC: It depends. I would say on average about once or twice a week–not much. When I’m home in Chicago, I’m usually in workout clothes and gym shoes, with the exception of date night or lunch with girlfriends. I wear heels when I travel to LA or NYC for work and I know I’m going to be photographed.
SF: What’s next for Kristen Cavallari x Chinese Laundry?!
KC: I’m currently working on fall 2016 already. I just started pulling inspiration together for that collection and I’m waiting to see samples for spring 2016. Just moving right along and having a blast doing it!
