Madewell Spring 2014

As a part-time Madewell employee for the last 2 1/2 years, I figured it was about time I did a little feature on them! This company is truly a great one to work for – not only is it a beautiful brand aesthetically, but the environment is equally charming. When you’re in the store and we ask if we can help you find anything, we genuinely mean it. We want to help you find something trendy and comfortable, to make you look like the Parisian goddess we all long to be.

If you haven’t checked out their 2014 spring line yet, check out some of my favorite items for the collection below:
