The Art of Mornings: Grace Atwood of The Stripe

The Art of Mornings The Stripe

Grace Atwood is the founder of The Stripe, a lifestyle blog focusing on fashion, beauty, personal style, wellness, and travel with an occasional recipe and runway inspired DIY project. Having grown up on Cape Cod, Grace is happiest by the water (us too!) but has now lived in New York City for over ten years! Her personal style is inspired by her background, a mix of coastal meets city chic, and she has never met a striped tee that she didn't need to have. Below Grace shares how she spends her mornings in LAKE!

The first thing I do when I wake up is...

Make a cup of coffee and sit down and read or write. When you work from home, mornings are easier when you have an enjoyable ritual to look forward to!

My skin survives on...

Face oils!! My skin is naturally pretty dry so I keep it as hydrated as possible.

The song playing in the background...

I'm bad about keeping up with music, so I always turn to my friend Victoria's playlists. They are so good!!!

I (try to) incorporate wellness by...

Being kind to myself...and moving as much as possible.

Breakfast is my time to...

Start the day on a healthy note. I'll make eggs, avocado toast, or a really big delicious smoothie depending on what I'm in the mood for.

If I had nowhere to be until the afternoon, I would...

Get up, work out, see a movie or go to a museum, and get a really big iced coffee.

Who's your favorite abstract artist? 

That is so hard to say but I've been really into Tom Wesselmann's stuff ever since stumbling into one of his exhibits in Chelsea last year!
