Her Favorite Things:

This gold piggy bank by Harry Allen for Areaware was an anniversary present from my husband. $200, estella-nyc.com

Tutu du Monde makes dresses that are like tiny works of art. I keep them on display in my daughter’s room when she’s not wearing them. Luminescent tutu dress, $159, tutudumonde.com

I stumbled on Maryanne Moodie’s work via Instagram, and have been coveting a weaving ever since. etsy.com

Whenever I’m in Brooklyn, I pick up these rings at Catbird to give as gifts. They are so sweet and delicate. Heart memory ring, $64, catbirdnyc.com

Former florist Ashley Woodson Bailey has moved on to photography. Her oversized floral images are dramatic and cool. The Dance, $260, ashleywoodsonbailey.com

This BABE white and gold foil hat comes in kiddo and adult sizes. White and gold is probably my favorite color combo. $20–$25, babekiddos.bigcartel.com

Cleobella’s Hendrix Bag in camel is cool and fringe-y. I can throw everything in there. And, it shares my name, so clearly it was meant to be. $398, shop.cleobella.com

My husband and I were married in Sayulita, Mexico, and we recently opened an events office there. I also just collaborated with Gunn and Swain on a rad blanket inspired by the destination. gunnandswain.com
