My Favorite Things || Kirby and Alexa from the Short and Sweet of it

April 18, 2013

I'm thrilled to have the amazing duo behind The Short and Sweet of It- Kirby and Alexa.  What a great team they make bringing such fabulous inspirations for us everyday- from beautiful hotels, to the cutest shoes you ever did see.  Today, they will be sharing their favorite things with us. Yeay!  So, here we go!

1 || Favorite store. Anthropologie is both of our weakness. Kirby’s fiancé surprised her with this colorful Anthro dress the day of their engagement photos.

2  ||  Favorite people. Big and small.

 3  ||  Favorite travel spot. Italy is where Matt proposed to Alexa and where Kirby is taking her upcoming honeymoon.

4  ||  Favorite jewelry. Kirby and Alexa both like to display their current favorites. Lately, Alexa’s been drawn to bits of gold that she stores in a delicate dish.

5 ||  Favorite way to unwind. Wine. Need we say more?

Thanks Kirby and Alexa for sharing with us your faves.  Venice has a special place in my heart as well because we went there on our honeymoon.  You need to go to the small island of Torcello which has an amazing Bizantine church and have lunch at Locanda Cipriani (same family as Harry's bar!).  You will Love it!
