If you could be a color, what color would you be? 
Yellow! Always positive and bright.

Yikes, too many. As my husband says “You only have two feet, why do you need so many shoes?”

Warm pao de queijo [Brazilian cheese bread] out of the oven.

It has never, in all my life, occurred to me count my shoes.

Toothpaste.

Name a guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Whichever soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free flavor the store happens to carry. (Hey, I have food allergies, or I’d be going for the good stuff.) Preferably with coffee. Or french fries. French fries are good too.

What is the last item you purchased for yourself?
Technically, black coffee, but let’s chat about fun stuff! I rarely shop for myself, but when I do, I’m a believer in quality over quantity. I finally scraped enough pennies to score a Lauren Moffat top I’ve had my eye on all summer.

If you could be a color, what color would you be?
White. My bedroom is completely white and if I didn’t live with two other 23 year olds, I’d paint the entire place. I came across this brilliant interview with Karl Langerfeld in Harper’s Bazaar [April 2012]. He states, “Everything is white. I like white. In white you can hide nothing.” Amen, brother!

What inspires you?
The family I work for is currently in Tuscany. I’m living vicariously through their other nanny’s Instagram account…the toddlers chasing each other around barefoot surrounded by rolling green hills at sunset, their hair blissfully tangled and giggles pouring out of their souls. Heaven!

Name a guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up.
Yoga. You’d understand why I consider it a “guilty” pleasure if you saw the bill.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I’m sure my cohorts would agree that to the world, I only own one pair — my Salt Water sandals!

What makes you happy?
Floating down a river with good friends and good beer on an incredibly hot summer day. (Give me a break! I’m from Alabama!)

What is your favorite food?
Blue cheese, passion fruit juice, salmon and scrambled eggs.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Rocky road.

If you could be a color, what color would you be? 
Green! It’s lively and evokes the essence of nature and life.

What inspires you?
Motherhood and the ocean. There is such a sense of self I felt the moment I became a mother. It inspires me daily to be a better person in all things, and my kids remind me of how good this world is. Everything is an adventure to them and it makes me want to be create, breathe, and live in the same way. The ocean has always been my place to reflect and be inspired. There is something so healing about watching the waves and feeling the salty air. Some of my most memorable moments and ideas have been product of just simply sitting on the sand.

How many pairs of shoes do you own? 
Surprisingly only about 15. I’m a minimalist and I’m constantly purging  my closet, so I never have too many at any given time.

What is your favorite food? 
Fish tacos! I could eat them everyday for the rest of my life. Grilled maui maui with lots of mango salsa and avocado please!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? 
Sea salted caramel gelato is my jam! A little salty, a little sweet. The perfect combo.

A Chipotle burrito bowl is my go-to.

Either mint chocolate chip, or Cold Stone Creamery’s cotton candy with sprinkles.
