power to the she {and the subtle bell sleeve}

I'm all about that functional, chic + easy style. I hate feeling cramped, squeezed or {the worst} boxy. I select pieces that are versatile + I stick to a pretty neutral palette.

So on Saturday, I did the same when I found myself walking PAST the new H Street Whole Foods and into The Apollo. There, custom-skirt brand, Zophia, held a fashion show for Betsy Cohen's latest line of CEO skirts. Oh, and it was called Power To The She, where all of the proceeds benefitted Mission: Launch, Inc., which is great.

Style-wise, I felt the need to have a business casual vibe to my outfit, without coming off overly corporate. 

{Mission: Launch is a non-profit started in DC with the mission of help women re-entering the real world after being in prison. They're seriously an INCREDIBLE program + I urge you to take two mins to go read about them here.}

I paired my favorite, favorite workwear shirt {note the subtle bell sleeves} with black pants that had the most subtle alligator skin look/feel to them. Honestly, I need to go shoe shopping, so I just threw on an old pair of block heels and headed out the door. Naturally. 

Accessories-wise, I wore a maroon choker {tied the back of my neck for a more minimal look} + added gold hardware. I loved trying out my #DWPetite watch, too. I've never been a fan of the mesh watch strap, but lately it's fit into my more polished style a lot. 

And the sunnies? Well, I kind of totally skimped on my eye makeup, so it was an easy work around. Psst: it didn't hurt, either, to have some boss ladies by my side.
