Giveaway: It by Alexa Chung

11/03/2014

We've always been huge fans of Alexa Chung. She's the ultimate cool girl, who never looks like she's trying to hard and always looks like she's having a ball. And she can do a cat eye like nobody's business. 

Her book It is equal parts style, scrapbook, and memoir and we devoured it over the course of one weekend. So we're excited to give away a paperback copy to one lucky reader. 

Let us know who inspires you in the comments to win a copy. Extra points for following @shortsweetblog on Instagram and posting about it.

See some of our favorite Alexa Chung looks, after the jump, and pop over here on Friday to see who the winner is.

Alexa definitely inspires me (I mean, girlfriend is just stunning), but Taylor Swift has been my ultimate fashion icon lately. She's just amazing, and I'm not ashamed to say it!

absolutely adore alexa! I'm really inspired by my boss right now. I work in a corporate environment and, if you know a corporate office, everything is very by the book and follows a certain trained culture. my boss, however, really doesn't apologize for who she is and is honest about what she believes in. she values who each person is individually and what they really cares about what they want first and foremost. it's refreshing and encouraging to feel like I can really express who I am in a culture that promotes uniformity.

My mom inspires me. She is the most beautiful person inside and out and my best friend. She is the strongest person I know and my go to for everything. From advice on fashion, love, work, school - she's always got the answer and helps me with everything. She is a hard worker, amazing cook, fashionista and smarty pants. If that's not inspiring...I don't know what is! :) So lucky to have such an amazing woman as my mom!
