Today’s contributor to the Fab Woman Project is Lauren from the sunny San Diego, where she lives on top of a bridge with her boyfriend. Her blog, La Petite Winget grabbed my attention with its colourfulness – apparently Lauren loves pattern, which sparkles through her stylish outfits. You’ll find her blog elegantly vibrant, cheerfully creative and perfectly inspirational! It’s an absolute catalyst for great ideas and chic on the go.

- Describe yourself with 5 words
Intense (in the best way possible), passionate, creative, excitable, adventuresome.
- Where does the name of the blog come from?
Winget is my last name, and is normally pronounced win-git, which is totally unsophisticated and completely un-chic. I had a drama instructor once that, in an attempt to give me a little extra flair, started circulating that my name was actually pronounced whin-jay, immediately giving me a little drama and extra somthin’. And the La Petite part? Well, I’ve been described as being kinda little… so it all fits!
- According to you how is your blog special/different than the others out there?
My blog is definitely still growing, and I’m still trying to create a brand around myself. As of today, I would like to see La Petite Winget as a resource for those who love patterns, love prints, love the unexpected, and are willing to put up with my attempt at witty banter. Next year this time, who knows what I may be morphing into…
- Apart from blogging what do you do?
I love to explore and wander. One of my favorite days is when I find myself in a new place, surrounded by new people, just enjoying life, and discovering new sources of inspiration.
- In 5 years…
…I want to be established in San Diego, well on my path to working for myself and doing what I love. I cannot wait to see La Petite Winget reach new heights, and see all my blogging dreams become reality!
- What are you proud of?
I’m proud of taking the risk to start a blog, to put myself out in the blogosphere and work hard each and everyday to grow my brand and make La Petite Winget more amazing than I could have ever imagined.
- What are you the best at?
Secretly, I’m a fantastic scrapbooker…
- Who would you like to spend a day with?
My favorite blogger, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. I actually met her once at an airport… she is everything I ever aspire to be…
- When are you the happiest?
At the barn, enjoying my horse, Moe (we’ve been together 11 years).
- What is the best thing about blogging?
Creating a space that totally 100% yours and see people all over the world respond and react, to find inspiration and make new connections.
- What makes a real woman?
My mom is the perfect example of a real woman. She tackles each day like a lion, nothing is impossible for her to achieve. I want to be just like her when I grow up, just in designer shoes and a great blouse.
- Who would you like to co-work with?
In my dreams, I would wake up and report to Jenna Lyons of J.Crew. Imagine the inspiration to be found in her office! Imagine the pure fabulousness of her ascetics! She is a total revolutionary!
- What is your favourite place?
My kitchen, but only when my boyfriend is cooking something amazing.
