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.

My daily uniform… Currently, a J.Crew rollneck sweater, Levi’s Wedgie jeans, Gucci loafers, Jennifer Fisher huggie hoops, and a Staud bucket bag.

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.

First thing I do at the office… Check my email, scroll through and the 5th at 58th blog, and read WWD’s daily digest while I drink the aforementioned coffee.
