1. My office is open again a few days a week—any cute business casual outfit ideas? We can’t wear jeans. 🙁

I’d go for a pair of wide-leg cropped pants (also love these) with a white top, a jean jacket, and heeled mules.

2. What to pack for a beach vacation/late spring break trip?

My shortlist is 2-3 beach/pool looks, 2-3 dinner looks, 2-3 casual looks, and toiletries (makeup + skincare). Here’s everything I packed for the Turks & Caicos, as an example.

3. How do you keep your hair healthy when you heat style?

I wash my hair daily but usually let it air dry. This is the shampoo, conditioner, detangler, and oil I’ve been using for years. I get a Brazilian Blowout every 6-12 months, which also helps with heat damage.

4. Current skincare routine?

In the morning, cleanse, tone, vitamin C, eye cream, growth factor serum, hydrator, then sunscreen.

In the evening, cleanse, tone, eye cream, growth factor serum, hydrator, then retinol.

I exfoliate with this 3x/week.

5. Where are the lanterns from above your kitchen island?

They are the large Darlana lantern by Visual Comfort Co.

6. White sneaker options?

LOVE these, these, and these. Luxury options: these, these, and these.
