How this wellness-minded J. Crew model gets going in the morning


morning_routine_michele_oulletWelcome to My Morning Routine, where wellness-minded model Michele Ouellet and other good-life gurus share their personal (frequently surprising, often healthy) morning rituals—to help you make your a.m.’s more awesome.

Michele Ouellet
Brooklynite, wine maker, and Elite model, who’s worked for J.Crew, Madewell, and more

I usually wake up around 7:30 a.m. First thing in the morning, I like to do Vedic meditation for about 20 minutes.

After that, I try to go for a walk or bike ride with my boyfriend and get an English breakfast tea. By 9 a.m., I’m at my workout class. I alternate between Pilates at Flesh and Bone in Brooklyn, SoulCycle, or yoga at Sync Studio. Then, I grab a juice from Shanti Shack.

I like to start my days by having fun, so when I get home I play my favorite song while I shower. Right now, I’m loving the Soulwax remix of Tame Impala’s “Let it Happen.” After my shower, I moisturize my skin with Live Live & Organic Bee Yummy Skin Food.

Before I leave the house I try on about a hundred different outfits. But I usually end up wearing black high-waisted Madewell jeans, a t-shirt, and my Chelsea boots!

How do other healthy models spend their time? Boxing for starters…
