A HERO FOR A HERO
Being a lawyer, Katie works in a profession where she has to look professional every day but refuses to give up comfort to do that. ”Luckily, a Grayson button-up can handle both tasks. A perfect-fitting Grayson button-up makes me feel like I can focus on more important things than how I look while still feeling confident that at least one person will ask me where my shirt is from. A button-down is a classic for a reason. It's simple and understated and makes me feel put together without a lot of effort. Plus it's comfortable and looks best with jeans which I live in.“
My superpower IS TALKING TO STRANGERS.
Katie’s go-to styling tip is getting the perfect sleeve-roll. ”I learned how to roll up sleeves properly when I worked in retail and it's one of my best tips. I don't know how to explain it but you bring the end of the cuff to where your elbow would hit and then fold the sleeve again....“ We totally get you Katie, that’s how we do it too!

KATIE'S THOUGHTS ON BEING A HERO
”I think being a hero is about being honest and imperfect—being willing to learn and listen and share.
My hero is my grandmother because she was always asking questions. She loved to be people's biggest cheerleader and give compliments to everyone she met. She was my favorite person to talk to about everything from major life choices to backgammon to soap operas.“
”My superpower is talking to strangers. I have a weird ability to draw things out of people.“
