Today’s accessories are all about rising to the occasion…
You probably know by know, but I’m all about building a wardrobe that’s chic and functional.
I wear a very limited amount of jewelry (although the right pair of statement earrings are always a good go-to), so a watch has almost become like an extended expression of my personality — and seemingly never-ending agenda/to-do list.
I won’t go into that in detail here as the feature is live on Self Magazine’s website, which you can read here.
In sum, though, I’m often out from sunrise to (well) beyond sunset on a daily basis, so having a wardrobe of clothing and accessories that can accommodate my schedule is essential.
The key, of course, is simplifying.
For an early morning meeting followed by an afternoon of errands, I opt for a look that’s no-fuss, comfortable and balanced — with a pop of prep.
I’m often grabbing my meals on-the-go (straight from the SoulCycle studio), and I’ve been on a juice kick since warmer weather has hit.
The all-white monotone and matte-like finish on the G-Shock watch that I’m wearing here lends a certain charm and intrigue to my look — and the fact that the watch’s technology can also help me stay on schedule is just an added bonus. (My nap game is real strong, and this particular style comes with four daily alarm features… Necessary!)

In the meantime, I’m off for the day — after teaching (bright and early at 6 a.m.), I’m heading to a photoshoot with a Chicago-based newspaper/magazine. This is unlike any shoot I’ve ever done, so make sure you follow along on Snapchat (‘coralsncognacs’). Should be interesting!
Have a great day, loves.
