I love the Coveteur (@thecoveteur)- and it is my daily fashion inspiration!

Your greatest achievement:

My greatest achievement is having my two little boys. Jackie Kennedy once said, “If you bungle raising your children, I don’t think whatever else you do matters very much.” And I agree! 

One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:

Success is hard work, luck, and never giving up. If you can remember that you will go far.

Skincare product you can’t live without:

I use the facial toner wipes from Dr. Ava Shamban a few times a day. They really cleanse and nourish my face. I also cannot travel without Dayle (@goddessofskin), my facialist’s, spray mist. It keeps me hydrated when I fly.

What do you love most about your work?

I love that it’s constantly changing creatively. Starting a fashion company requires you to wear a million hats, and I love the diversity of all that I do on a daily basis.

Cocktail of choice:

I am a red wine girl. My husband and I gave up drinking for a month and he was amazing. I still had 1 glass of red every night!

Your most regrettable style phase:

I went through a phase where I would wear super short skirts and tummy bearing tops together in my early 20s. When I look at those photos I want to throw clothes over that young girl.

Go-to workout song on your most recent playlist:

I am a country music lover. My playlist is filled with Zac Brown, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift.

Your longest lasting friendship?

I have 2 friends who are like my sisters. My friend Mathilde and I met at summer camp when we were 7 and have been friends ever since. My friend Benton and I met in college and I could not imagine how boring my life would be without either one!

If you weren’t the Founder of HANEY you’d be a...

I would have loved to be a country singer, but sadly I have the WORST voice.
