I know, I know…Summer hasn’t even “officially” started and we’re already supposed to think ahead to Fall!?! As crazy as that is, I have to admit that when I came across Madewell’s Fall/Winter Lookbook I was smitten with the easy, yet structured & fresh layers that abound! Winter whites, strong patterns, leather over tweed, playful lengths – all wrapped up with an easy and casual “coolness” almost makes me want to shop for fun sweaters. Almost…

Get Shopping {Madewell is coming to town!}

 
Madewell comes to Chicago

Listen up, Chicago: If you’re, like me, a fan of Madewell’s laid-back & fun style then you’re in luck. The brand is finally opening a store in Chicago next week! Yay!

Head to 932 N. Rush Street next Wednesday, April 3rd, for their opening day. Madewell staff will be handing out 150 mystery gift cards ranging from $10-500 starting at 10am to kick off the day! I suggest getting there early so you can score big and get your shop on.

Above are a few of my favorite Madewell things for Spring. How amazing are those leather bags…and don’t even get me started on those minty green sunglasses!!

You know that perfect retail moment when you see a piece of clothing that you’re immediately in love with…and once you try it on it fits like a glove!? Yep, that’s exactly what happened when I found this Milly skirt. It’s girly with an edge – my favorite combo. The fabric is thick and structured (no wrinkling & great for colder weather), and the voluminous silhouette and detailed pleats make it feel super luxe.

I can think of a million ways to wear this skirt….so I decided to style it two ways. This one is my take on warm-weather casual…with a few pops of color to keep things fun! Stay tuned for another take.

Temperatures continue to drop…even the weather here in Florida (I’m visiting for a few days) is chilly! Is your accessory drawer/corner/basket ready for a stylish Winter? These accessories top off a pulled together & warm Winter outfit….so make it count! Don’t resort to poorly-matched and worn out gloves or silly hats. Accessories are an easy & affordable way to put the finishing touch on your walk-in-the-park or your weekend restaurant date. So get out and pick up a few before your fingers freeze off!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend, Lovelies. And stay warm!
