WHAT ABOUT ROUCHA RESONATES?
I'm a firm believer of buy less / buy better and Roucha makes pieces that are great on their own and made so well they pair perfectly with the designer pieces in my closet. The high quality fabrics, interesting cuts, the wearability! And of course the genius sizing system.
Ohlson denim blazer with Paj denim pants- I love a 'borrowed from the boys' look. The Pape pant has been in regular rotation, and the Tammy t-shirt is perfection- I'm serious when it comes to a good t-shirt!
Daily morning dog walk- after a cup of coffee but before I'm ready to deal with reality, I walk with my dog listening to music or podcasts depending on my mood. It's my way to get balanced, and even if some days I don't quite succeed, it always gets me closer.

BEST PODCAST LISTENED TO RECENTLY?
The Sunshine Place is a really good series if you like it culty, and, as a tennis fan, the Design Matters episode with guest Chris Evert was very cool - I think it actually improved my game! It's interesting how Debbie Millman interviews through the lens of design, even when interviewing someone outside of the design world.
