Style Signature: My style changes seasonally. In the summer, I'm in big, flowy sundresses and sandals with colorful sunglasses and bandanas—real hippie vibes. In the winter, I like to be sleek. I'm almost always in a thin black turtleneck with patterned pants and black boots.

Favorite Designer: For more everyday looks, I tend to shop at Zara or Aritzia. When I'm dressing up for an event, I love Sandro and Paul & Joe.

Essential Jewelry: I love rings and have an extensive collection that I rotate through. Though there's one ring that I always wear, which I admittedly kind of stole back when I was in the Broadway musical Hamilton. When I left the show, I took my character Eliza's wedding band with me. It's one of my favorite keepsakes and I never take it off. Shhhh, don't tell.

Favorite Shoes: I'm a white Converse girl on most days. But I'm also a fan of simple, black high heel boots for dressier occasions.

Everyday Bag: Lately, I've been wearing a crossbody leather fanny pack, and I absolutely love it. It's so freeing, not having something heavy hanging off my shoulder all the time.

Makeup Item That's Always in Your Bag: I can't go anywhere without Laneige Lip Glowy Balm in Berry for my constantly chapped lips.

Most Beloved Beauty Product: I'm obsessed with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Protector. It has the perfect lightweight, breathable coverage.

Leading Lip Color: I adore the Glossier Generation G Lipstick in Leo—it's such a versatile color to just throw on.

Hair MVPs: I don't do much to my hair. I have a lot of it, so it's just too much work. A good dry shampoo is a must—I alternate between Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo and Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo, which doesn't leave a white residue in my dark hair.

Signature Scent: I like to layer scents, so I usually mix Santal by Riddle fragrance oil with a discontinued Le Labo perfume called Benjoin 19 Moscow.

Go-to Nail Polish Color: I'm really into white nails. But I also can't resist some colorful, outrageous nail art every once in a while.

Skin-Care Regimen: I start with Tatcha The Deep Cleanse face wash, which gently exfoliates my skin. Then I use Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater as a toner, followed by either Tatcha The Water Cream in the summer or Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb in the winter for extra hydration.

Hidden Hobby: I love to draw, and I mostly sketch people. I'm not sure if I'm any good, but I really enjoy doing it.

Most-Frequented HotSpot: A plant store—any plant store. Yes, I am one of those self-proclaimed crazy plant ladies.

Workout Routine: A lot of arm exercises—lifting the burrito from the plate to my mouth!

App That You Live For: Postmates knows me as a very loyal customer.

Biggest Indulgence: When I'm away, I say to myself, "Well its OK to shop now—I'm on vacation!" The shopping I do while traveling will be the death of me.
