Comfy Shoes "You'll often find me in Converse sneakers — they're my everyday shoes — or Danskos, which I wear for work. If I want a little bit of height but still want to be comfortable, I'll put on heeled booties."

Skin Softener "I moisturize with coconut oil every night — it really works wonders. I'm devoted to Pevonia products, too; they're gentle and leave my skin feeling pampered."

Fragrance Fave "A little-known fact about me is that I love perfume. Right now I'm obsessing over Carolina Herrera's Good Girl fragrance. The shape of the bottle may have something to do with it."

Travel Tote "Tumi and Diane von Furstenberg are my go-to brands for suitcases and travel bags. I always pack my carry-on with a change of clothes (in case my bag doesn't reach the destination), the latest book I'm reading, lots of magazines, a toothbrush and a shawl or wrap to keep me warm on the plane."

Makeup Must-Haves "I don't wear much makeup, but one of my favorite products is MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick, a bold red that stays on all day."

Dependable Denim "My favorite brand of jeans is 7 for All Mankind — they're always flattering. I typically wear their skinny style with the hem rolled up a bit."

Smooth Strands "I have naturally thick hair that tends to get frizzy, so I use Aveda's Smooth Infusion shampoo. I love that the brand's philosophy is based on Indian Ayurvedic principles."
