2020 bio:

L​exie grew up in Madison, Mississippi, before settling down in the Tri-State area. Now, a resident of Louisville, she is a recent graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a Bachelor’s in accounting and a double minor in business administration and mathematics.

While her full-time job is at Beam Suntory, most known for Jim Beam Bourbon, her blog Lexie Smiles is a creative outlet that allows her to remain passionate about fashion, travel, beauty, and so much more. She has quickly amassed nearly 11,000 followers on Instagram, where she shares photos of her outfits as well as details on where she purchased them. Also, her Instagram features photos of her travels, including a trip to Greece she took last April.

In addition to her blog, Lexie also launched a program that was created to provide youth with the tools they need to grow into young adults called “Coffee Break with Lexie” which offers advice on professionalism, finances, college life, and general inspiration to encourage high schoolers and college students to become the best adult version of themselves.
