“I probably am pretty basic.” Lauren Conrad spoke these exact words in her interview for the October cover of Cosmopolitan (when is she not on the cover of Cosmo?), and now we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. LC, who has been a Betches idol since Laguna Beach in like eighth grade, has given us her official permission to be basic.
Obviously we were all pretty guilty of this before, but now that LC has said she’s okay with being basic, nicegirls officially can’t make fun of us for it anymore. Like, I love that you read science books, but Lauren Conrad told me it’s okay to be basic. So this Labor Day weekend, let your basic flag fly free.
