Madewell Summer Picks

I love Madewell, mainly because not only do they carry their own brand, but others as well. Their clothing and accessories are casual or edgy, depending on how you style the look. They have a vast offering of merchandise, the quality is great, and the price points vary. It’s a great place to find anything you’re looking for and you know you’ll walk away with pieces that will last you many trend-filled seasons. I’ve put together my picks for this summer. Hope you like them!

TEXTILE ELIZABETH AND JAMES
One of the brands designed by this year’s CFDA winners, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (and one of my favorites). This collection offers fabulous denim pieces and quirky dresses. I love that they chose to do the jacket in a bright pink, the jeans offer that 70’s vibe I dig, and the shirtdress is right on trend for this season.

Sid Denim Jacket $365
Morrison Jeans $245
Alex Shirtdress $245

SUMMER MUST-HAVES
Everyone needs a fantastic bikini, a great hat and sunnies, and some tops for summer. These are my favorites warm-weather pieces.

TOP:
Pen and Ink String Bikini $46 for top, $44 for bottom
Sunny Day Tortoise Sunglasses $49.50
Sheercheck Smocktop $69.50

BOTTOM:
Mara Hoffman Cocoon Tunic $213
Biltmore Straw Fedora $58
Stoneskipper Sweatshirt Tee $49.99

All items available at Madewell

Summer essentials, for me, are pieces you can wear year after year. Bikinis, sunglasses, denim, tees, a great dress-these all are essentials. Add some trendier items and you have the perfect outfits for the season.

Spring Styles

This amazing weather has me imagining perfect spring outfits. I spent some time today searching through my shopstyle app and putting together a couple of super fun spring ensembles. I seriously could spend all day doing this, and if you haven’t downloaded the app yet-what are you waiting for? Here are two of my favorite looks-can’t wait to go shopping!

Top: Loila Spot Print Asymmetrical Top $38 available at Hot Mama
Jeans: Zippered Charlie Skinny $129 available at Lucky
Shoes: N.Y.L.A. Colby Wedge $39.95 available at DSW
Sunglasses: Oversized Sunglasses $35 available at Mango
Jewelry: Turtle Earrings $38 and Classic Wide Bangle $28 both available at J. Crew

I love the cut of this top. It’s something you can wear to work or for play. Because the print is so colorful, I went with more basic jewelry (but the turtles are still playful). Paired with skinny jeans and a wedge, this outfit can easily take you from day to night.

Top: Color Me Red Colorblock Cami $38 available at Hot Mama
Jeans: Textile elizabeth and james “Morrison” $245 available at Madewell
Shoes: Chelsea Cork Mule $69 available at Urban Outfitters
Jewelry: Flower Patch Bracelet $68 and Earrings $42 both available at J. Crew
Sunglasses: Touch Vintage Style $35 available at Mango

This look speaks to the hippy child in me. I love the flow of the cami and the colors are scrumptious. Paired with a flare and cork mules, I am in 70’s heaven. I choose floral jewelry to add to the flower child vibe.

So, what do you think? With the weather heading into the 70’s this week, I am more than ready to pull out the spring duds!
