Guys. I’m in trouble.

Like, big, big trouble.

My friend, Andrea just opened the cutest ( like honestly, the cutest ) store ever.

…down the street from my house.

( Insert Emoji throwing its head back, crying here ).

FML.

I’m screwed—! Her stuff is so, so amazing. She carries all the best brands ( Stone Cold Fox, Child of Wild, Flynn Skye, & For Love and Lemons ) & her style is so rad ( not to mention she’s beautiful & sweet too ).

Anyway hope no still has a Halloween hangover ( cough, cough )…ok, regardless I’m sure you’ll really enjoy Andrea’s interview! Check it:

+ Introduce yourself.

Andrea Van De Vort: Hi! I’m Andrea Van De Vort. I recently moved from Los Angeles to sunny San Diego to live with my surfer hubby & mini-australian puppy, Wally. I’m obsessed with fashion and have been working in the industry for six plus years.

+ Tell us about your amazing store you just opened!

AVDV: Yes! So after learning the ropes in the fashion district downtown Los Angeles, I’ve finally opened my dream store in the newly updated Flower Hill Promenade in Del Mar called Van De Vort. My husband grew up here, so we thought it would be a perfect spot to settle down and set up shop. Not to mention, there was a HUGE void of brand representation down here ( << AGREED!! ). The focus of my boutique is to bring all of those cool & unique LA-based brands down South. Some key designers to mention are Stone Cold Fox, Flynn Skye, Novella Royale, etc. So far the response has been amazing & I’m having SO much fun dressing the ladies of San Diego!!

+ Weekly workout schedule?

AVDV: Where to start- I’m obsessed with Pilates on the reformer, I do that three to four times per week. I love the focus on the core, the bootie, & all of the stretching throughout the class. I also take a couple spin classes each week for cardio, and just started working out with a trainer once a week for interval and weight training. My husband & I also throw in a couple of half marathons in each year for the heck of it, it’s more of a mind challenge than anything ; ).

+ Quick skinny tip?

AVDV: Exercise & clean eating—duh??! I also think a happy & positive attitude helps the overall health in general, so I try to keep that up as much as possible ; )!

+ Favorite snack?

AVDV: I’m not a huge snacker. Especially now that I am in my boutique everyday, I hate having a mouthful when shoppers come in. So my new favorite go-to is a Suja Elements ( the Blutrients flavor ). It’s not only totally yummy, but so easy to get my nutrients in that I don’t have to worry about having food in my teeth.

+ WTF is your purse:

AVDV: Not much, I can’t stand a heavy bag that leaves me sore. So you’ll find just the basics: my Cleobella ‘Mexicana’ wallet ( so cute! ), Burts Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine ( addicted ), a mini tube of Bliss Body Butter, floss, business cards, & my Raen Optics oversized sunnies.

+ Cocktail of choice?

AVDV: Anything spicy! Particularly skinny jalapeño margies. Or a buttery chardonnay usually does the trick too.

+ Must-have beauty products?

AVDV: I’m obsessed with Eminence organic skin products, especially the Blueberry Soy Exfoliating cleanser ( yum! ). I’m also a mascara addict; Lancome Hypnose is number one right now.

+ Five fall pieces you’re loving (with links)? And how to wear them?

1.} Printed Bell Bottoms with a cropped top or oversized shirt.

2.} Sweater kimonos over a tank and cut offs.

3.} Midi-skirts with a chunky sweater.

4.} Boyfriend jeans with boots and a white blazer.

5.} Pant Jumpsuits with extra high wedges.

+ Skinny, easy recipe:

AVDV: I love pesto!! I love it on spaghetti squash, I love it on kale salads, I love it in my eggwhites! I found this awesome raw hazelnut pesto in NYC last fall and am addicted. You’d never know it’s vegan!

Raw Hazelnut Pesto:

1 1/2 cups tightly packed basil
1/2 cup parsley
3 tablespoons hazelnuts
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon
2 cloves garlic
Sea salt to taste
2 tablespoons coconut oil, olive oil, or water

    Oh my gosh, she is so cute! I love her outfits and that she moved to where her hubby is from. I wish I lived closer or had plans to visit Cali so I could check out her new store. Does she has a website I could do some online shopping at?

    I love Eminence as well! I have the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant and Probiotic Acne Prone Cleanser. I like to mix the too together because the dermafoliant is a odd texture.
