Designers & Inspirers :: Lauren Scruggs

Stylist, magazine editor, and entrepreneur Lauren Scruggs has never let hardship define her. After recovering from a fluke helicopter accident in 201_, she pushed forward to start Lolo Mag, an online lifestyle magazine (one of our fave place to find style inspiration!) and is about to launch an all-natural, vegan dry shampoo called Stranded (launching this Fall!). Lauren is an inspiration to persevere through tragedy because the passions within you should not be compressed. Keeping her love for all things feminine and neutral, she has designed a necklace to add an effortless touch to any outfit.

What is the inspiration behind your piece? I am all about anything neutral and feminine, so I kept that in mind while designing this piece. Not to mention, the fact that the women who are making this necklace are rising above poverty through the art of creativity is so inspiring! That is the best part of it all!

How will you rock it? I am going to wear this with light-washed denim overalls, a basic tank, and some pretty sandals or a platform sneaker (my go to right now!).

Fave Fall activity? Sitting by fires, cozy beach weekends, carving pumpkins, long dinners, lots of family time, and hot matcha lattes!
