One of my favorite things to do on those rather rare, slow mornings is to enjoy a great cup of coffee and catch up with happenings in the world the old fashion way. I like to get up early to avoid traffic and crowds and to have the city just for myself. There is something revitalizing about those kinds of mornings. The air is fresh and crisp and you tend to notice and appreciate the little things that you otherwise walk past by every day.

I’ve received the question “Do you really wear heels on a casual off-duty day?” a few times and the answer is yes. I only wear flats when I know that my day is going to be a busy one with lots of running around involved. I don’t quite feel fully dressed without heels involved. However, I always keep a pair of flats in my car for anything spontaneous or unexpected. I live in heels, but the comfort and health of my feet do come first.

Even if it’s just a coffee run, I like to look polished without putting too much effort into getting ready. Comfortable pants and big sunglasses are a must (so I can skip the make up part). I’ve been living in my A Ruby pants ever since I came across that brand. A Ruby is all about looking chic without feeling uncomfortable. If you missed my interview with the founder, Avra you can catch up with her vision and the story behind the A Ruby brand HERE.
