Madewell is, without a doubt, one of my favorite stores to shop at. I love everything from their denim and sweaters to their accessories to their home goods. Everything! I try not to pay full price for anything, though, since there’s almost always a sale going on. If you sign up today, you get access to their 20% off sale for Insiders! (25% off if you’re at the Star or Icon level). Bonus: if you use Rakuten (formerly ebates), you can receive up to 15% cashback on your purchase!
Medium Transport Tote // Matt got me this purse for my birthday (or was it Christmas?) one year and I wear it almost daily. It’s big enough to carry all of my essentials (wallet, keys, chapstick, and a couple pens) and small enough to stuff into a backpack when I’m flying. The leather is so freakin’ soft and the strap is the perfect length to wear on your shoulder or as a crossbody.
High Waisted Skinny Jeans // Gen Z is going to have to pry my high waisted skinny jeans off of my cold dead body. I will never give them up! These are the perfect pair: great, everyday color, ankle-length, and they make my butt look good. If skinny jeans aren’t your thing or you want to explore into mom jean territory, I also love the Curvy Perfect Vintage Jean (or the Curve Love Mom Jeans from Abercrombie – also on sale)
Charley Pullover Sweater // Hands down this is one of the best sweaters I have ever purchased. I love that the fit is slightly loose but if you want something more fitted, I recommend going down a size. It’s light enough to wear on its own on a warmer day and thin enough for layering.
Frances Loafer // I loveee the look of loafers. The Frances Loafer at Madewell is the perfect cross between casual and dressy. Even still, I don’t get to wear them as often as I’d like. (Probably because my go-to errand “look” is athleisure.) I recommend sizing up a half size and breaking them in before wearing them out of your house!
Relaxed Denim Shorts // And because I’m looking forward to warm weather and not a blizzard, time for some shorts! The relaxed denim shorts at Madewell have a wider thigh opening for thicker legs. I typically have to size up in my shorts to accomodate my thighs but not with these! They definitely fit true to size.
Bergamot & Amber Candle // Hands down, this is one of my favorite candles. The soy burns clean (no soot!) and the smell is light, fresh, and a little citrusy. It’s perfect for the whole home. The jar is also very aesthetically pleasing!
