STYLE CRUSH | Alexa

We all love a nice well rounded practical outfit. What we love more, is an Alex Chung inspired practical outfit! If you haven’t read her book IT, you’ve gotta get onto it now. She shares her little funny drawings of banana’s and where she finds her biggest inspiration. With all honesty, this girl is always stepping with her best foot forward.  She nails the effortlessly chic Parisian style with such ease and today you can too.
