Following a busy stay in the Big Apple,  Lauren Conrad was spotted making a cheerful arrival back home in Los Angeles via LAX Airport on Friday afternoon (September 18).

Accompanied by her assistant, the former “Hills” hottie toted an iced green tea latte as she navigated her way through the airport madness and out to an awaiting car.

During her stay in NYC, Lauren took part in the Mercedes Benz fashion week happenings, hit up the MTV VMAs and finished up the trip with an appearance at the VH1 Divas show the previous night.

Meanwhile, Miss Conrad is also looking forward to the release of her budget fashion line for Kohl’s that will debut on October 1 nationwide.

Telling about her low-cost line, LC tells that the line is “a little more casual…trying to take that California style and make it accessible everywhere.”
