How I Start My Day: Bergdorf Goodman’s Claire Stern
Welcome to How I Start My Day, a recurring column that spotlights the morning rituals of our favorite writers, editors, and tastemakers.
Name: Claire Stern
Title: Editor at Bergdorf Goodman
My alarm is set for… Roughly 30 minutes before I head out the door. I’m not a morning person.
First thing I do when I wake up… Hit snooze.
My breakfast consists of… La Colombe coffee and a sometimes a banana.
I take my coffee… Strong and bold with a generous pour of almond or oat milk, depending on which one isn’t experiencing a shortage that week.
I can’t start my day without… Coffee. This is not a drill.
Getting dressed… Requires thought. I usually lay out my outfit for the following day the night before because I’m not in the right headspace to make sartorial decisions in the morning.
Favorite morning workout… Once in a blue moon, I’ll wake up early and go to Peloton—but only for Cody’s class. I prefer to go after work and on weekends.
I can’t leave home without… My AirPods.
How I get to work… The subway, unfortunately.
