The women who wear Adea are a diverse, exciting and interesting bunch of ladies and we are always curious to learn more about each of them. So, as part of a new feature on our blog we’ll be highlighting an Adea customer each month. We are thrilled to share their stories and hope you enjoy them as well. If you want to share your story in an upcoming month email us!
We interviewed Heena, an acute care surgeon, wife and mother of two (a girl age 10 and a boy age 6).Tell us a little about yourself:
With all my years of training (10 years after medical school and college) it took a while to setting into my grown up life. Up until then, it was easy with studying, training to be a surgeon, and starting a family to consistently neglect myselfignore the way I felt on the inside and on the outside. But after I finally did settle down (at age 36), I decided that I needed to overcome the excuses, the 100+ hour work weeks, and the endless to-do's of family life and own myself.
I have been cultivating my interest and efforts in family, fitness, and fashion to be the me that I want to be. I am even making time to blog this journey heelskicksscalpel.wordpress.com. Finding Adea as my go-to layering (and now only ones I own) pieces were a key fashion find and I am delighted to be featured on the Adea blog.
My personal style is… bold but sophisticated or effortlessly chic.
My personal styling trick is… I don't have one per se but given my body type I pick pieces/cuts that either distract the eye from my mid-section or that create the appearance of a narrower mid-section (e.g. with color blocking).
I’d be lost without… my fitbit. It is a recent acquisition but I feel naked without it. I like how it reminds me to do things like take the stairs or park further from the entrance at work or get up and walk when I am working on my next manuscript.
The best place I’ve ever traveled to is… to Agra for the Taj Mahal.
My favorite Adea piece is… the 3/4 sleeve scoop neck tee in white. I have 3 of them I wear them so often. I wear them under lots of half sleeve/cap sleeve/sleeveless tops and get tons more mileage out of them into the cold months.
