Tell us about your personal style?
My personal style is really very simple—what is comfortable and what looks good! Yes, most comfy clothes don't look good and a lot of pretty things aren't very comfy! As a mommy and a magazine editor, I need to have style, function and comfort!
How do you usually put together your outfit for the day?
The weather and the occasion dictate it. Oh, and I should be able to breastfeed!
How do you make sure your look is not over-the top?
There is nothing wrong with being OTT!
Where do you usually shop?
Oh, wherever! Zara, Tango, SM Dept Store, Rustan's, eBay!
What are your closet staples?
Right now, my clothes have to make it easy for me to breastfeed. So I have tube dresses, button-down shirts, dresses that zip up in front, pussy bow blouses, V-neck tops and the like. I also love trousers and jumpsuits. They are so comfortable but I always look so put-together in them!
Are you more of a shoe or bag person?
I used to be a shoe person but now I wear flats all the time. I'm a bag person now—usually roomy bags from Gucci and Topshop!
What gift would you love to receive on Mother's Day?
A shopping spree!
Tell us about your outfit and where will you wear it?
I am wearing a Bench tank top, Kate Moss for Topshop wide-leg pants, Cole Vintage flats, a Sopia bib necklace and--for a pop of color—my Cambridge Satchel. I wore this for an errand day.
What do you like most about it?
I like it because it's very comfortable and I never need to think about it—put it on and forget about it! It's also very mommy friendly (except the bag! I have a separate diaper bag though) because black hides my mommy bulges, black can hide drool and spit well, and I can just lift up my shirt if I need to nurse my baby boy, Vito. Perfect outfit!
