Barbour Little Boys’ Beaufort in Green:It’s kind of like a suit of armor for any and all devout New Englanders (like myself). No day feels quite safe without it, especially when battling angry crowds at Milk’s (excuse me, Made’s) lobby space. I like the proportions of the kids’ version better than the adult’s.
Charles Anastase Shirtdress: Simultaneously structured and tenty, which are good qualities to look for when you need to somehow mask the fact that you haven’t slept, eaten, or gone to the restroom in 72 hours. Also anything Charles Anastase is just pixie perfect and fits in well with my ‘Ezra Academy after-school program’ look.
Bath Oil:After running around for 12+ hours It’s just kind of a necessity to take an amazingly scented hot bath.
Postalco reporters’ notebook and Papermate Flair Pens: My favorite combination! The notebook’s waxed cotton cover makes it champagne-spill-proof (a surprisingly important quality), and the pens are the best for impromptu interviews, somehow enabling you to write at scary-fast speeds.
Ferragamo Bow Flat: Anyone who knows me is all too well aware of my sickening affinity for this shoe, which I own in 5 colors. Yes it’s weird, but the heel is perfectly pitched to lengthen the leg, and they’re comfortable enough to weather a 5 mile walk (my first pair bears resemblance to worn out running shoes). Oh, also there’s a bow.
Hourglass Icon: The perfect shade of brooding berry red that’ll tone down the kinder nature of all my pink chiffon and bow-laden clothing. Added plus–it’s paraben free!
Matcha: I’ve found myself in many twitchy situations in seasons past so this time around I’m sticking to a one-cup-of-coffee-per-day rule. Matcha green tea is a great alternative–it’s detoxifying and provides that necessary jolt without all the involuntary body movements.
