Before a meeting downtown last week, I combed through my closet looking for something that was professional, but not too stiff (meetings in the creative industry allow for some wiggle room, but I didn't want to look like I'd dressed for a casual coffee with friends). That's when I remembered a gingham top I'd ordered the week before. The silhouette is professional, but the exaggerated bell sleeves provide a fun, unexpected detail while the picnic-inspired print winks at the fact that it's summertime. At the last-minute, I swept my hair into a low ponytail and swapped my over-shoulder bag for an edgy clutch that draws the eye to the sleeves, a simple trick I learned from a stylist on set.
