Saint Paul, MN. I am a dual British citizen (where my parents are from) so I’ve spent a lot of time in Oxford and Liverpool over the years. My father still lives in Oxford.
Favorite spot in the Twin Cities?
Nightingale in uptown Minneapolis. It’s an elegant, yet casual place to meet friends and relax. I also enjoy the Mia and Walker Art Center.
Coffee, tea, or cocktail (and how do you take it)?
Jasmine Green tea with lemon. I also enjoy a good Moscow mule in the wintertime.
In a few words, explain your style:
Simple, modern, classic. I used to be much more bold in my style choices, but over the years, I have come to simplify my wardrobe and really appreciate the quality of pieces, as opposed to the quantity.
Any daily rituals?
Since I was young, we always had “tea time” at 4 o’clock after school every day. As a part of my English background, I find comfort in continuing this tradition, so every day I remember to take a break and have my own teatime, whether it be alone or with a friend.
One piece of advice you’ve taken to heart:
It’s not a specific quote or saying, but I’ve learned that it’s important not to worry about mistakes I’ve made in the past. I believe mistakes are made so we can learn from them, and to harness those experiences to focus on choices we make in the future.
