"I’m not a big sneaker girl but if I’m doing a lot of walking around I go for a chic Dunk Wedge –– always," she tells us. "I have these red canvas babies and they are the perfect pop of color for my outfit but definitely give my feet relief when we have a lot of ground to cover."

"I love a good hat, I’m a hat girl actually. I have this one and I love it."

"I’m famous for losing my sunglasses but I like these from Warby Parker for a few reasons," she explains. "They have a bit of weight to them so I always know where they are in my bag, but they're not too heavy where they way down my face. I also like the company because they donate a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that you buy."

"Everett" sunglasses in midnight blue, Warby Parker, $95, warbyparker.com.

10 of 10

"I received this one as a gift and I just love it. You can also transition it into day wear with a slip."
