After seeing Free People’s latest collection, it was hard to decide which we loved more– the gorgeous intimates or Alyssa Miller’s stunning photography. Electric Love is a series of romantic and whimsical shifts, bodysuits, and vintage bra and panty sets sure to satisfy the most discerning bohemian girl, just in time for Valentine’s day. We’re over the moon over the Breaking Hearts bodysuit seen on Alyssa below, with metallic detailing and lace panelling that can be dressed up or down. Our new fave lounging outfit is sure to be the Gigi Robe thrown over their Frame Up soft bra and some Flirty Shorts for the perfect cute & comfy ensemble. Alyssa used self-portraiture to capture all of the collection’s photos, relying only on her own perspective. You can get an in-depth look at her self-portrait process, her artistic story, and how she approaches self-love in an interview with Joanna Rentz for Free People’s blog (BLDG 25), here.  Keep scrolling to see how Alyssa wears and photographs Free People!

You might know Alyssa Miller as the girl who rose to supermodel fame through modeling for Guess, Victoria’s Secret, and SI Swimsuit Edition, but at heart, she is a laid-back country girl who loves to ride horses. Boho fashion powerhouse For Love and Lemons recently teamed up with Alyssa to get an inside look at her life in Texas, where she works on writing music and taking life at a new, slower pace.  In addition to modeling, Alyssa did all the styling and photography in the shots below. We’ll be watching closely to see where her creativity takes her, and as she records her first album we expect it will be amazing new places! Keep scrolling to experience a day in the life of Alyssa Miller.

Days Off with: Alyssa Miller

If you’re like us, you’re welcoming Fall with open arms. And what better way to kick off the season than by exploring Austin, Texas with model, musician and animal lover Alyssa Miller. An Austin resident for just over a year, Alyssa gives us a glimpse into her surreal new life, away from LA and NY, the bustling cities she used to call home.

Read her full story to learn about her evolving career and to get a glimpse into a perfect Fall day in Austin. And let us just say – if the cooler autumn weather doesn’t give you the chills, Alyssa’s “Days Off With” story, complete with wide open ranch spaces and impromptu swims in her neighboring lake, will. 

All photos were taken by Alyssa herself.

linebreakWhat does a typical day in the life of Alyssa Miller look like?  

I usually wake pretty early to feed the chickens and the dogs, make my self a cup of tea, crawl back into bed and read the news/catch up on emails. I’ll play a bit of guitar, I love singing and writing songs everyday, it feeds my soul. I’m working on recording my first EP at the moment.  I try to get in a work out everyday I have off, I’ll do a spin class or Pilates. I love going for a little swim at Barton Springs after for a cool down.  I usually try to get some writing done for my Web Series I am working on with my partner Amy Bracco, called Models Wrote This. A comedic take on the everyday lives of models, stay tuned. Ultimately my perfect days off consist of a little rest and relaxation, a little productivity and creativity on some of my projects and a little activity. Perfect balance.

 We see you’re an animal lover from all your furry friends you’ve featured on IG -Can you give us the name of your pets and one word to describe their personality? 

My dogs:

Charlie my Boston Terrier – Gregarious

Tennessee my Mixed Breed – Lover

My chickens:

Loretta – Loud

Dolly – Sweet

Tammy – Rebellious

linebreakHow long have you lived in Texas? What made you first move to Austin and what has kept you there? 

I’ve lived in Austin just over a year. I was burnt out on NY, I was pushing myself too hard with work and travel. A few friends had just bought a place in Texas so I started coming down for the weekends and just completely fell in love. I haven’t really fallen out of love either, it’s still the honeymoon phase for me. I love the people here, I love being able to just jump in the river for a quick swim anytime I want, seeing amazing live music on a whim, having chickens roam free in my yard, it’s just a higher quality of life.

We hear that you just moved into a new place – can you tell us a little bit about your new home, the aesthetic, your favorite part of the house?

It’s a bit more modern than I imagined a house of mine being, but it just had the best energy. It’s very special, so many amazing details. The space is very open and airy as well, which I love.

What are you looking for (furniture pieces, design inspiration, other decor) to decorate your new space?

I have such a love of furniture, typically Mid Century Modern, and interior design. I have collected so many amazing pieces over the years. I LOVE chairs, collect them like a mad woman. So I haven’t had to do much, but as a collector I always have my eye out for special pieces.linebreak

linebreakHow has living in Austin effected your career as a model?

To be honest, I’ve taken a major step back. But by choice, I was burnt out after years of flying non-stop and not really taking a break. Now I’m lucky enough to choose the jobs I want to take and do my own projects on the side. I’ve changed my whole approach, and my life is more about what makes me happy and keeps me healthy. Now when I am on the road, I am so happy to be there and can be fully present in the moment.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I like to think of my self as a story teller, whether that’s through modeling or through music, through my photography or through my show. Telling a story is what I love to do.linebreak

linebreakCan you give us a glimpse into what Fall is like in Austin?

Fall in Austin is amazing, it stays quite warm year round so it’s almost as if we get Fall twice, instead of Winter. The leaves turn and I get to cozy up in all my favorite sweaters, drink tea, and write, it’s my personal heaven.

On my day off, I’d wear: 

An easy dress, or Jeans and a tee.

My favorite styling piece(s) for Fall are: 

A good square toe ankle boot, obsessing on this shape at the moment.linebreak

linebreakOne part of your routine you couldn’t do without is: 

I couldn’t do with out singing for a day, my living room has these amazing high ceilings and it makes for some nice acoustics, I just walk around singing all day long.

The song/album I’m playing on repeat this season: 

Kevin Morby – Singing Sawlinebreak

linebreakWhat are some of your favorite hangouts in Austin?

Josephine House for brunch and bloody Mary’s.

Perla’s for lobster rolls.

Barton Springs for a dip and the best people watching.

The white horse for a dance, a drink, and tacos from the truck out back.

Continental club for the best live music.

In your next life you will be…?

An elephant ️<3

linebreakThe best piece of advice you have ever received and from who?

When I decided to move to Texas, I was really nervous to tell my agent, and she was so lovely and understanding. She said, “Babe, you only live once. Live it all the way up.” So simple, but it struck me because here I was after doing the same thing for so many years, afraid to take a chance and try something new. It was just the encouragement I needed, and I’ve never been happier.
