Fashionably early fans lined up on a beautiful and sunny afternoon at Blue Willow Bookshop, located in Houston, to catch a glimpse of their favorite California girl, Lauren Conrad. The beautiful blonde showed up in a print maxi and heels from her own line carried at Kohls.

This is Conrad's third time at the bookshop for her fifth book, "The Fame Game," which debuted No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Lauren was fascinated with the Houston weather since the first book signing she came to at Blue Willow Bookshop was incredibly cold - and it had snowed that year, delaying her flight - in which she referred to it as 'Snowmageddon.'

The second time signing at the shop, the weather was around 102 degrees.

Perfect day for a book signing today and the fans loved the weather, too.

It was an incredibly nice for the fans waiting outside in line, which wrapped around the front of the shopping center - as they waited for their books and magazines to be signed, some holding armfuls.

Fans at the book tour were anxious to know more about Conrad's line, Paper Crown, her new book 'Beauty' (which is being released this fall), even guys showed up in line to ask for her number and compliment her until shop keepers would call 'next' for the person behind them patiently waiting.

Some also showed with presents in hand to give Conrad a warm Texas welcome. One fan knew that she loved bows - showing up with a bow bracelet in hand, which Conrad thought was really sweet.

Another fan flew in all the way from Florida on her birthday, just to get five minutes with Conrad - not to mention all of her books signed with personal birthday wishes.

Conrad was featured on the Chelsea Lately show two days after her stop in Houston, discussing her new book and the book tour coming to a wrap. "The Fame Game" is in stores now and the book tour wraps up April 24 in Los Angeles at the Barnes and Noble located in the Grove.
