bits and pieces of Alexa

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

I’m excited to have the second half of the talented duo that is The Short and the Sweet of it here today sharing a few bits & pieces of her life with us. Alexa has been blessed with exceptional taste, an affinity for travel (a girl after my own heart) and potentially the cutest kid I’ve ever laid eyes on (I mean, did you SEE those curls?!) She’s approachable and kind and I have no doubt you’ll adore her as much as I do…

::A random fact::
 I look terrible in hats. All kinds: Baseball hats, fedoras, sunhats, berets, just ridiculous.

::Your go-to recipe::
Chicken Enchiladas. Seriously super easy.

::You can’t live without::
caffeinated beverages. Ever since having a baby, my cup of black tea in the morning is a necessity.

::Currently coveting::
This Ruby Tiger Cuff from Bauble Bar. It’s fierce!

::Your daily reads::
there are too many! Some of my current favorites are Delighted Momma, Chartreuse & a Twist, Brunch at Saks and of course Lark & Linen! I’m also a total politics nerd and religiously read The Economist, NPR and Politico.

::On your playlist::
Fun, The Lumineers, Silversun Pickups, Jay-Z, Bob Dylan. Totally random I know.

::Your favourite quote::
“Write drunk, edit sober. “ Ernest Hemmingway

::On your night stand::
 I remember Nothing by Nora Ephron. I also just finished I Feel Bad About my Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Women. Adore Nora!

::Your favourite designer::
For fashion my go-to spots are J. Crew, H&M and Anthropologie; for archeticture Frank Lloyd Wright; for interior design: anyone who hates white walls.

::In your wishing well::
Matt and I have done a lot of traveling, but Africa has eluded us so far. I’d love to step into that great wild just once in my life.

::Your dream home::
Lots of redwood, brick, windows and an open floor plan. While we’re at it: ocean view.

::Your happy place::
Paris in the rain
