Hey y'all - Lauren here!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Element of Fashion was created to be your hub of style inspiration; whether you need insight on dinner parties, travel musings, or just outfit ideas, you’ve come to the right place. 

I graduated from Baylor University with a BAFCS in Apparel Merchandising and Business. my passion area has always been fashion, as well as helping others. This blog is the perfect marriage of both. The blog’s name "Element of Fashion" pays homage to my original site Southern Elle Style, as well has my husband and my new initials "LM" for Lauren Mulenos. My husband Nick has been instrumental in the success and support of the brand, so it only seemed fitting! I originally thought of the name while going through a shelf at my parent's house and stumbling upon an old Strunk and White "Elements of Style" book.

I hopes you can view this site as a you would the periodic table of elements - a base for all your styling needs, which can be combined to create new and exciting things in your life.

I’m so glad you’re here!
