name: Alexa Evans
location: San Diego, California
occupation: Marketing Writer and Blogger at The Short and The Sweet Of It
wearing: Red coat from a factory outlet in New Zealand. Is it embarrassing that I don’t remember the name of the store? Black leggings: Target. Boots: Bass Outlet. Belt: Also Target! To be frank many things in my wardrobe come from Target, but I have no shame here. Scarf: Florence Outdoor Market. Clutch: Anthropologie. It was a Christmas gift from my sweet husband, who apparently has radical taste, or he just listened when I screeched: “I want that!!!”
favorite designers: Marc Jacobs because his dresses are always intriguing, plus he can do no wrong with his perfumes (I’m addicted to the gardenia scent). Kate Spade because I have a heart for all things fun and girly and when does Kate not deliver on that? I’m also a frequent shopper at Ann Taylor Loft when I want to pretend I’m a professional working woman. And at J. Crew whenever I want to wear something that makes my girlfriends screech: “I want that!”
What style means to Alexa: Style reflects personality. Whether its calmness, quirkiness, elegance or coziness, someone’s fashion style speaks volumes about how they are feeling on a particular day. I think mine has changed drastically since becoming a mom. These days I opt for something comfortable and not too fussy, but also something that speaks louder than workout pants and a tank top (admittedly I wear those a lot too).
This fall I’m loving stylish boots (without heels), trench coats, skinny jeans, leggings, and scarves representing every color under the rainbow.
