Who is your personal style icon? (name up to three)
There are so many! Pretty much anything Kate Moss wears, and I am constantly inspired by Isabel Marant's creations.
What one item in your wardrobe could you never live without, and why?
Rag & bone and J Brand jeans, Inhabit cashmere sweaters, and Theory and Vince leather jackets. These are my go-tos -- I can put any of them on, particularly together(!), and immediately feel chic without having to try too hard. As a mom, I don't have much time these days to think about what I want to wear, so to have those go-to pieces that feel right every time is of enormous value to me.
What's been your biggest investment piece thus far? What is one investment piece you hope to one day call your own?
My Helmut Lang and Theory leather pants. They can be dressed up or down, and go with everything. Oh, I have so many other investment pieces that I'm hoping to call my own. The two that I've been eyeing the longest are Chanel's classic flap bag and Celine's luggage and trapeze totes. Maybe someday!
What is your universal style tip (something every woman can benefit from)?
Wear what makes you happy. It's always good to take into account where you're going and who you'll be with, but ultimately you'll feel best if you dress to please yourself. Also, invest in pieces that you will have for years -- you can always update your wardrobe by buying a trendy piece or two, but quality classics make up for their cost over and over again.
Where can we find you on a Saturday afternoon?
Roaming the streets of NYC with my husband and two baby boys!
