RIGHT NOW: WHERE ARE YOU, WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON, AND WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ITEM YOU’RE WEARING?
On a train back into the city from a weekend at home in CT, about to start a new book (The Girls by Emma Cline), wearing an oversized sweater and leggings.
SUM UP YOUR STYLE IN ONE SENTENCE.
Comfortable classic with a little quirky thrown in.
HOW DO YOU LIVE ‘MINDFULLY?’
I check in with my body throughout the day, and always make the time to do the things that make it feel better. I also try and think about how my actions influence the planet in the short and long term.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
Chug some water.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO GET READY IN THE MORNING?
I value my sleep way too much so I sleep in as late as I possibly can and am usually rushed in the mornings. No longer than 20 minutes!
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO WORKOUT?
Either an early-morning HIIT workout or a nighttime run around Prospect Park.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO KEEP YOUR LIFE (AND CLOSET!) A LEAN, MEAN, CLUTTER-FREE MACHINE?
I’m a neat freak so every few weeks I’ll set aside an afternoon to sift through everything and get rid of anything that no longer serves me (including clothes!).
YOU’RE A BUSY BABE. HOW DO YOU BALANCE WORK, HEALTH, AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?
I think learning to forgive yourself and realize that nobody’s perfect is the most important part. Once you take that pressure off yourself, it’s so much easier to stay busy while also staying sane.
WHAT PODCASTS OR BLOGS DO YOU KEEP UP WITH?
Cup of jo, that’s so retrograde, and well/ aware are all great!
WHO DO YOU ADMIRE?
FAVORITE SPOTS FOR A HEALTHY MEAL?
The salad bar at Foragers is a definite go-to.
WHITE HOT LIGHTENING ROUND– GO!
HEELS OR FLATS? Flats
BUSINESS OR CASUAL? Casual
EARLY MORNINGS OR LATE NIGHTS? Late nights
NEW YORK OR LA? New York
COFFEE, TEA, OR MATCHA? Coffee coffee coffee
