Style blogger Alyssa Edwards of Sincerely, Truly Scrumptious is our Arizona representative for Sparkling Across America! We’re so happy we got to chat with her about her history in blogging, her style inspiration, and her summer style predictions out west and beyond. Read on for the whole scoop!
Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin blogging?
I actually started my blog when I graduated high school but it wasn’t until 2 years ago that I started writing almost every day. I had a passion for styling, beauty, DIY, and sharing my outfits; everything just clicked.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Where do you get your style inspiration?
I am inspired constantly from Instagram, Pinterest, and everything around me. I love recreating looks that I have seen with pieces in my closet.
What do you like best about living in Arizona?
I absolutely love everything about Arizona. From the restaurants to the landscape, there is something for everyone here.
Do you notice any regional trends that may not be as prevalent in other parts of the country?
Not so much anymore, but when I was in junior high and high school having absolutely huge, poufed hair was all the rage. I am so glad that trend has died off. Haha
How does Arizona’s climate affect your style?
During the summer, it is definitely a challenge. Wearing cut-offs, a tank, and sandals are a must in the 112+ degree heat.
What trend are you most excited about wearing this summer?
I am obsessed with Kimonos. I hope this style never ends. I love the flowy vibe, and I am a sucker for fringe.
What do you predict will be the hottest hue of the summer, and how do you plan to wear it?
I have been seeing a lot of neon colors lately in everything from Kendra Scott jewelry to bright Michael Kors bags. I will be rocking neon in statement pieces this summer
What is the one summer accessory you can’t live without?
Stacked bracelets. I love the look of layered bracelets, especially in the summer.
What is your favorite piece of jewelry you own and why?
Besides my wedding ring…. I love my gold name necklace that Jeff gave me for our two year anniversary. I wear it every single day.
What is your favorite piece from EvesAddiction.com right now?
My favorite piece is the gold white druzy ring.
