The Daily Grail Questionnaire with Haute Living's Adrienne Faurote

Part Proust, Part Vogue's 73 Questions, and Part Colbert Questionnaire, Adrienne Faurote, Haute Time's Editor-in-Chief, answers The Daily Grail Questionnaire.

What’s your favorite time of day?

Definitely the morning. I like to think of myself as an unofficial morning person; do I spring out of bed? No. But I absolutely love a 7 am workout or waking up super early to write in peace.

Last meal: where, what, and with who?

Zitz Sum in Coral Gables with my boyfriend, Andrew. It actually came highly recommended from Adam Bossi from Tudor; he was raving about it a few weeks ago when I saw him in New York, so I had to check it out. Confirming it lives up to the hype!

What is your greatest extravagance?

Premium health and wellness products and services. I swear in my past life I was a wellness

editor. I love indulging and trying new innovative alternative healing practices.

Song on repeat?

Easy — Taylor Swift anything.

What is your most treasured possession?

Currently, I would have to say my Rolex Datejust 41mm with the mint green dial, fluted bezel and Oyster bracelet. I am obsessed with her and love the story she tells within my watch collection.

Best accessory?

Hermès Chypre sandals are a year-round Miami staple for me. I also rarely leave my house with out my Jacques Marie Mage sunglasses in the green gradient.

What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

I am obsessed with crime and conspiracy TikTok and podcasts. I can truly get lost scrolling for hours doing “detective” work.

Best action movie?

Hands down Taken with Liam Neeson — iconic.

Dream watch?

Ah this is so hard, there’s so many! Perhaps the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra Thin-Skeleton, 41.5mm in pink gold. It’s truly one of those time pieces I have not been able to stop thinking about since I saw it last June in Beverly Hills before “The Anatomy of Beauty” short film debut.

What is your motto?

I have a few mottos I always say I want my future kids to remember me by — One is ‘No is not an answer’ (I blame my early days as a fashion assistant at Marie Claire for this one), there is always a solution to be found.

Style icon?

I would say if Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and Chiara Ferragni had a baby, because I am a true minimalist like Carolyn — I love my neutrals and tailored pieces — but also love pops of color and fun, unexpected choices like Chiara curates into her wardrobe since I’ve moved down to Miami.

What do you want to be remembered for?

Definitely for seeing the positive in every situation and not taking the small nuances in life too seriously. I am a self-admitted extremely positive person and it truly takes a lot for me to break that because I know life is too short to dwell on the negative.
