Girl of the Week: Alexis Booth and Jayme Elliott

This week we bring you another lovely Girl of the Week duo – Alexis Booth and Jayme Elliott. Alexis grew up in Torrance, California and is a recent graduate from Sonoma State University with a degree in English Literature. She is an avid reader, shopper and lover of a good lipstick. Jayme was born and raised in Los Angeles and studied English at the College of the Holy Cross in Boston. She recently got engaged to her boyfriend of 6 years (congratulations!) and loves her girlfriends, good books, and her Maltese/Shih Tzu puppy, Sophie. Meet Alexis and Jayme.

Alexis: Silk Anthropology dress and blush Steve Madden T-Strap platforms.
Jayme: Forever 21 navy blue and cream lace dress, Franco Sarto strappy heels, and a thin braided brown belt – an H&M steal.

My personal style is…
A: Comfortable with a bit of an edge. I like taking basic pieces and mixing in a great skirt or jacket, always adding tons of accessories.
J: A blend of East Coast prep and So Cal beach girl — mostly classic with the occasional trendy accent.

First memorable fashion purchase…
A: A yellow leather Juicy Couture bag when I was 17. I still have it and love it.
J: A trip to Fred Segal at the age of 14 for an amazing pair of jeans from their denim bar — thanks Dad!

Beauty must-haves…
A: MAC’s Russian Red and OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark. I wear them year round!
J: Bronzer! A light pink nail polish and a dark vampy one, those three things will get me through any occasion.

Style secret…
A: Be comfortable and love what you have on.
J: I hunt things out or even make them myself — sometimes the pieces I crave just don’t fit my budget so I’ll spend the time to find a duplicate or a pattern or tutorial to recreate the look for less.

Go-to outfit…
A: Dark skinny jeans, black flats and a chunky cardigan. Complete with a red lip and layered necklaces.
J: LBD but casual, very summer-y with turquoise accessories and the heels I’m wearing in the photo are my trusty Jessica Simpson peep toe wedges.

Favourite accessory…
A: A Tiffany’s diamond by the yard my Mother got me for a birthday. Classic, timeless and goes with everything.
J: My chunky rose gold Michael Kors watch that I bought to be a statement watch/bracelet accessory, but has become an everyday staple. I just don’t feel dressed without it.

On the weekends you can find me…
A: Shopping, out with friends, or enjoying time at home with family.
J: Somewhere, literally anywhere, in the sunshine. Shopping, eating, chitchatting or walking the dog, East Coast or West — I’m practically solar-powered.

Guilty pleasure…
A: Target — they have everything you need!
J: I’ve been known to excessively frequent In n Out Burger.

Top 3 favourite songs on your iPod…
A: Fearless by Taylor Swift, The Scientist by Coldplay, and everything by Snow Patrol (I couldn’t pick just one!)
J: Ours by Taylor Swift, One Love by Hootie and the Blowfish, and We are Young by Fun.

Drink of choice…
A: Margarita on the rocks. Best served with a best friend and gossip.
J: Margaritas on the rocks with salt or champagne.

Currently saving up for…
A: A timeless gold watch I can layer and wear with my everyday pieces.
J: A big brown leather bag, I haven’t found the one yet – it’s been eluding me for months!

Astrological sign…
A: Cancer — to a T!
J: Taurus — and I’m pretty true to my bull sign.
