She empowers young women to feel comfortable in their skin regardless of shape or size. And as a recent college grad, she is keenly aware of real life budget limits. Get to know Alyssa. She’s one Divine girl.

Describe your style.
I experiment with so many styles, but the best way to describe my style would be a blend of bohemian, rocker, and feminine.
What's your favorite thing about blogging?
At Sincerely, Truly Scrumptious, I love being able to help girls feel comfortable in their own skin. It's also nice to have a platform for sharing style, opinions, and tips.
What could you not live without?
My friends and family.
Describe your happy place.
My happy place involves the beach, a cold drink, a good book, and my fiance.
What's inside your handbag?
Currently—and only because my bag is clean—my wallet, lipstick, sunnies, pens, business cards, gum, keys, and my camera lens. I always misplace it!
We hear you're engaged. What's in store for the big day?
I am beyond excited. We tie the knot in October at a gorgeous winery in Arizona. I want the feel of our wedding to be bohemian and romantic, yet glamorous. The colors are blush, gold, and Tiffany blue. My bridesmaids are wearing different long, flowy dresses. The guys will be suited up in classic black tuxes. Classic and romantic!
Who is your style icon?
I don't have one style icon, but I'm always finding inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest. My favorite of the moment is Modern Suburbanites, because she knows how to rock my fave look: boho. Her Insta handle is @rhiannon_lorenzo.
What's your everyday look?
Black jeans, a graphic tee or tank, either a blazer (more dressy) or cardi, booties, and lots of jewelry. I also have a thing for headbands.
What is something that people don't know about you?
I am strangely obsessed with Alpacas. They are so darn cute.
What's your biggest accomplishment?
Graduating from college and starting my blog. I promised myself that the day I become uninterested in blogging, I am stopping. I never want to do something with which I am not completely happy.
If you like it, wear it. Style is an expression of yourself. If you feel good, you'll look good!
Coffee or Tea?
Coffee in the morning. Tea in the afternoon. I love both!
Hmmm. This is a hard one. There are so many brands I enjoy, but currently I am obsessing over Kate Spade.
