In our second instalment of the St. Agni At Home series we had the pleasure of speaking with Georgia Rollin, Associate Buyer at Moda Operandi. Based in New York City and originally from Australia, Georgia has unique insight into what it means to stay home and connect with family from afar. We asked her questions around her WFH routine in NYC and most importantly her WFH outfits, offering some inspiration while we all stay-in.

Big glass of water and check my emails
The amazing spirit of NYC in adversity- we sing "New York, New York" as a neighbourhood at 7pm every night with our neighbours. Nothing can defeat New Yorkers.
Wake up, shower, have a coffee with my husband, sit at our dining table and work together for the morning. My husband and I usually prepare lunch together and eat together. Back to work in the afternoon. Then around 5pm I do a zoom workout with my friends in Australia. After that my husband and I take a walk along the Hudson River. We usually order take away on the way home (supporting our favorite West Village locals) and we eat together sometimes over a bottle of wine. We then usually call family back in Australia. I usually jump into bed after this and read a few chapters of my book.
I believe people will be buying more meaningfully and considered. I think more people will become interested in and take notice of sustainable brands and practices and be buying into items they truly love and want to wear over and over again
Definitely living in knits and sweaters (its still a little cold in NYC) and comfortable cotton or linen pants (jeans when I am feeling fancy!) Shoes optional
A Negroni from Dantes (our favourite West Village restaurant)
Connecting to friends and family across the globe (via FaceTime). Usually I take this for granted but when human contact is scarce chatting for hours on the phone can really change my day for the better
Our neighbourhood community. Although we are all standing 6 ft apart everyone is smiling and supporting one and another, waiting for the day that NYC returns to her former glory
Amo Flared Pants and matching Taille Blazer obviously! I love the Ryoko tanks in all colours, as well as the Arlo ribbed button up shirt in every colour- match back to the Lia Ribbed Skirt or Enzo Ribbed Pants and you have a killer outfit!
