Behind the Style



Hi, I’m  Alex, the girl behind the keyboard of Adding Style Blog. Communications professional by day. Mom, wife and blogger by night. When I’m not spending time with my beautiful daughter and husband, I love writing about my favorite fashion finds, home décor, and life in general! I am currently living in Houston, Texas. I grew up outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, and lived there until I was 16 years old. Then, my dad got transferred to Houston (Oil & Gas Industry) and the rest was history. I attended The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) where I majored in Public Relations with a minor in Computer Science. For my day job, I work in communications for a private school.

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Andrew since 2017. We got married in Houston the day Hurricane Harvey made landfall, but I’ll touch more on that later. Together, we have an adorable daughter. She is such a joy and full of sass and spunk.  Being her mom is my favorite job title out there.

I have always loved fashion and LOVED colors in my closet. I would try to tone it down when I was younger because it wasn’t always cool to wear a bright green top to school. As I have become more comfortable with myself, I have learned to push my insecurities aside. I am always trying to find a great deal on my favorite brands as well. I love finding designer items at stores like TJ Maxx. It’s like winning the lottery!

I am a HUGE sports fan. I know more about college football than most people do. Nothing beats waking up on a Saturday morning in the fall and watching College GameDay on ESPN with a cup of coffee and some Chick-fil-A breakfast (it’s a tradition in our house). I am lucky enough to have two teams to follow now, my Alabama Crimson Tide, and Andrew’s Baylor Bears.

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to get to know me. It means a lot to have you here, and I would love to hear from y’all!
