"My personal style is preppy with an urban vibe. I favor clean lines, great fit, and excellent quality. I love the color palette of black, navy, camel, white, and gray, with accessories to add pops of color. In the summer, I ditch the black and opt for fun Lily Pulitzer pieces that I can mix with navy or white.

I feel comfortable in many styles as long as the fit is excellent and flattering. In the fall and winter, I love pairing dark skinny jeans with a super-soft cashmere v-neck sweater, and ankle booties. For work, I think a blazer elevates any outfit. I also love a great dress paired with tall boots. On the weekend, I lounge in cozy leggings and an oversized Red Sox or Patriots hoodie.

I always wear my wedding ring and engagement rings, a little lip gloss, mascara, and a spritz of Jo Malone perfume. And you’ll always find me with a bag; even when I’m dressed casually, I carry a great bag.

Garden City is my favorite shopping destination in Rhode Island. I love everything about it! I also love online shopping at Everlane and ASOS.

There are so many things to love about Jamestown. I love Beavertail State Park – the gorgeous views and peaceful landscapes are like meditation. Dutch Harbor for Tallulah’s tacos (summer only) and beautiful sunsets. And Jamestown Outdoors for the seasonal sales. The people in the community are kind, supportive, engaged, and they all love our island. It’s such a special place that words (even for someone like me in publishing) can’t quite capture.

My husband and twins inspire me to love fiercely, live curiously, and work passionately. Reading a good book thrills me and going to NYC energizes me. My daily gratitude practice motivates me to always look for magic. When we pay attention to the details, there is always a gift to be grateful for in our lives."
