Jenni Kayne is a fashion designer who's style exudes beyond the perfect slip on mule, cardigan, or throw pillow. She has quietly built a following that emulates her effortlessly cool California chic. Her ethos sets the scene for living well, and I'm here for it.
Melissa: What is your particular morning routine?
Jenni: I start my day with a yerba mate tea or an iced matcha latte iced with almond milk. After I have that, I’ll try to meditate. Then I wash my face and get ready for the day.
If I have extra time, I’ll make sure to foam roll. In terms of exercise, I ride horses in the morning before work and before dropping my kids off at school, and then I do Pilates and Gyrotonic two times a week in the afternoon.
When I wake up I’ll check my phone and then I won’t look at it until I’ve finished my routine, which I feel really helps me start my day off on the right foot.
Melissa: What are your go to brands that are particular to you? Tell us your go-to denim, white t-shirt, bra or underwear, shoes, PJ’s or brand you splurge or invest in?
Jenni: For t-shirts, I love Jenni Kayne for elevated basics and Re/Done for a more casual look. I always like to invest in pieces from The Row—and Jenni Kayne, of course.
Melissa: What is your particular song to blast in the car?
Jenni: My kids control the music in my car these days, so what we’re listening to can really vary. If it’s just me, I’ll usually turn on a playlist that my sister Maggie made.
I think there’s so much beauty in embracing life’s imperfect moments and just letting it all unfold.
Jenni: I’m a Virgo in the truest sense, so I’m definitely particular! That being said, I think there’s so much beauty in embracing life’s imperfect moments and just letting it all unfold.
