From beautiful Boston, Massachusetts

About

With strong ties to Campania and Sicily, I've been fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by my parents, siblings, grandparents, and cousins for almost every occasion. In our family, food and an unabashed excitement for life is at the epicenter of everything we do and feel; it is who we are at our very core. And so what I write and share here is forever inspired by the Mediterranean way of living I've become so anchored to and enamored by.  

The Italian culture so seamlessly marries fashion and food, and it is my hope to inspire you through both.

Welcome, friend! I'm Alyssa - Boston native, fashion lover, and founder of A With Love. Since 2017, I've worked to curate a space uniquely my own, weaving together my passions in a way that inspires you to amplify yours.

The kitchen is where I begin each morning with my coffee and cap off my evening with a glass of wine, a delicious meal, and good conversation. You could say it's my happy place here in our home.

At home, I am loyal to my Nespresso. When I'm out and about, my go-to order is either a triple shot of espresso with almond milk, extra ice at Starbucks or a piping hot cappuccino in the North End.

I've spent every summer since I was born at my grandparents' home in Dennisport, Mass. It's where I feel most at peace and relaxed. It's also where Matt proposed. It holds a very special place in my heart.
