Function and fashion rarely go hand and hand, but as the lovely Jamie Beck, photographer extraordinaire of From Me to You fame, so beautifully illustrates, mini-fashion miracles can happen.

It’s nearly impossible to find a work carryall that can meet the needs of a style-savvy girl on the go – with laptop/lunch/gym clothes/camera equipment et al in tow. Jamie is carrying the only bag that I’ve found to do the job thus far – The OG bag by San Francisco based Lo&Sons. Their bags combine everything I need to haul my life around: durability, size and strength all in a sleek, subtle aesthetic.


But I’m also loving Jamie’s dapper Mad Men-esque look. The mid-calf skirt, classic ballet flats and sweet sweater are ultra-feminine and ultra powerful all at the same time. Just as every working girl should be: two-martini lunch not required.

So go out there and harness your inner dame this week luvies.

Happy Monday!
