7 AM. I begin my day with stretching, breathing, journaling, spraying my plants, and then I get straight to work.
Favorite breakfast picks:
Tea! I also try to start my day off with positive energy and sometimes I say affirmations out loud.
Quickly describe your style and what you wear on a typical day:
Eclectic. It literally depends on what I have going on that day- sometimes I stay home and work in my home office all day, sometimes I go work at a coffee shop, sometimes I have meetings or events to attend. Literally every day varies.
Tell us why you chose to wear the MMW Core Collection today:
I wanted something cut, comfortable and easy to layer since the weather was a little nippy.
What you love about your MMW garment:
I love this rustic orange color and literally how comfortable the material is against my skin. It's such a perfect piece you can dress up or dress down and that versatility is something that's important for my capsule wardrobe.
Tell us how you accessorized the skirt: I chose to accessorize it with a complimentary, rustic golden color palette.Out the door, what do you always bring with you:
A book, my physical planner (I don't use digital) and a reusable water bottle.
Give us a peek into your typical day:In my line of work, no two days are the same and I love it.Share your easy, go-to lunch:
Mid-day pick me up, how do avoid the afternoon slump:
After work plans: After a productive work day, I usually go home or chill in my backyard if whether permits.How did you feel wearing MMW for the day:
Definitely getting outside and getting some air and maybe doing some journaling and/or dancing and singing (karaoke style)
Comfortably regal. I felt like I can have a productive day while still looking cute and feeling comfortable.
How do you wind down for the night:
With a cup of tea!
