Rotating Wardrobe

“I’m a recent convert to the world of clothing rental—and I’m obsessed! I have two subscriptions to Le Tote, so I always have something new to wear. I signed up for Rent the Runway, too; it’s helpful when I have an event.” Classic plan, $59 per month;


“I don’t wear a ton of makeup, and when I do, I like it to look as natural as possible. I use Rituel de Fille’s luminizer on my brow bones as a highlighter, on my lids as eye shadow or on my cheekbones to give my skin a dewy glow.” Rare Light Luminizer, $29;

Beloved Bauble

“Maya Brenner makes beautiful state pendant necklaces, and I adore my Kentucky one.” Kentucky necklace, $130;

Cooking Essentials

“I can’t live without my cast-iron skillet and enameled Dutch oven from Lodge. I also inherited my grandmother’s avocado-green KitchenAid mixer, which I use nearly every day.” Six-Quart Dutch Oven, $115;

Books All Around

“I always keep a book in my purse, in our den, and on my nightstand—you’ll find my ‘smart’ books there. My current lineup includes Silent House by Orhan Pamuk, Certain Relevant Passagesby Joe Manning and Grocery by Michael Ruhlman.” Silent House, $16;

Style Extender

“I’ve tried so many fancy dry shampoos but nothing compares to Psssst!—it’s a drugstore classic. My hair tends to look flat when it’s clean, but this product adds volume and allows me to go an extra day or two between washings.” Psssst! Instant Dry Shampoo Spray, $7;

Splurge-Worthy Brush

“My hair has a natural wave that I often play up with a one-inch-barrel curling iron. I let the curls cool, then I brush them out with my Mason Pearson brush. It was a gift, and at the time I was shocked at the price tag. But 10 years later I swear by it!” Mason Pearson Handy Mixture Bristle Hairbrush, $150;
