Glimpsed at Work: Carla Hayden

Carla Hayden wants you to know that librarians have style. “The greatest compliment is when some says, 'You don't look like a librarian,'” the CEO of <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLCUL000144" title="Enoch Pratt Free Library" href="/topic/arts-culture/libraries/enoch-pratt-free-library-PLCUL000144.topic">Enoch Pratt Free Library</a> said when we spotted her at work. The Baltimore resident added flashes of color throughout her outfit, starting with a beautiful multi-colored scarf from India that a friend gave her as a holiday present. Her green jacket -- the color is very in style -- was from <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORCRP014856" title="Talbots Incorporated" href="/topic/business/talbots-incorporated-ORCRP014856.topic">Talbots</a>. Her black dress was from <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORCRP008358" title="The J. Jill Group Incorporated" href="/topic/business/the-j.-jill-group-incorporated-ORCRP008358.topic">J. Jill</a>. She wore a pair of black tights from TJ Maxx and a pair of BeautiFeel shoes. “They are very comfortable,” she said. “I do try to wear comfortable yet stylish shoes.” Her earrings were from Appalachian Spring in Washington's Union Station. She's had her watch for more than a decade, purchasing it at a local Baltimore boutique. “The key to great style is simplicity and ease,” she said.
