Putting together an outfit that is the perfect marriage of comfortable and chic can be nearly impossible. Yet Deborah Sofferman, an interfaith minister, is a pro at marrying together the seemingly divergent–from couples to clothing. FOF spotted her outside of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Age: Over 50

Any passion projects? It is enormously gratifying to help others discover the spiritual truth about their identity. In addition, it is an honor to create beautiful and unique wedding ceremonies that convey the love and commitment of couples of all ages!
How would you describe your style? Comfortable, classic, creative and easy.
Do you have a routine for picking out your outfit each day? When I’m in the Connecticut countryside, it’s relaxed and casual. When I have appointments with clients in New York, I like to wear sophisticated and elegant clothing.
What’s your favorite item in your wardrobe? A sincere smile — priceless!
Do you have any style advice for other FOFs? A healthy perspective heals everything. When your thoughts are helpful, you feel good and therefore, look good. And when you smile because you are content, it’s infectious.
