Fashion Meets Farm Girl

Hi there, I’m Lauren Moran, the founder of Rustic Honey, a country lifestyle blog & boutique. I’m a wife, mother, and proud farmer’s daughter living in southwest Missouri. I chose to leave my comfortable design career in the city to pursue both of my loves, fashion and country living!

When I’m not busy running my business or writing this blog, you can find me chasing my adventurous son, Ren, or doing chores around the farm with my husband, Dan.

This blog gives me an opportunity to share a little bit of life from the farm through home-cooked recipes, handmade home decor, styling ideas, photography and more! I am in no way an expert in any of these areas but I have a true love for cooking, sewing and crafting and have been practicing the country way of life nearly my entire existence. I hope you’ll stick around and find some inspiration for your home no matter where you live!

“For me, nothing beats a star filled sky out in the country! I feel most at home on an old dirt road, riding shotgun in an old farm truck that smells of oil and dust.” – Lauren

The Boutique:

Rustic Honey was first a college business plan I wrote back in 2010. I studied Fashion Marketing & Management at Stephens College and wrote this plan for a small boutique near my hometown. After college, I pursued a career as a buyer/designer for a corporate company instead of going it alone with a small boutique.

After a few years of commuting, and driving back and forth to our farm on the weekends, my husband and I decided to move back home and settle down in our small farmhouse. This transition spurred the creation of Rustic Honey as an online boutique and it gave me a way to work from this “middle-of-nowhere” we call home.
