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:

Festival Fashion // Round 2

We still have festival fever over here in the North East, dreaming of being able to roam freely between music tents with lemonade in hand and not a care in the world. Feeling inspired from yesterday’s looks, we decided to pick up on some of the major trends we’ve been seeing and piece some outfits together that we hope to soon be wearing.

Tribal Pants // Tribal pants are going to be everywhere at a festival, and for good reason. They’re fun, they’re playful and most importantly, they’re super comfy. We love this flattering wide leg with a slimming fitted tube top. Have some fun by mixing up the print with what else?…how about more print! These leopard sandals mis-match perfectly.

Playful Romper // Rompers are great because they have the ease of dress, but since they’re shorts, you won’t be worried about them flying around in the wind. This oversize floral pattern is eye catching, and festive. Pair it with some bold metallic jewelry, chunky sandals, and pinstripe backpack to really stand out.

Crop Top // Crop tops are a little intimidating when you first see them on the hanger, and with good reason. Anyone who can pull them off with a low-rise bottom is basically a barbie-doll and should be studied in a laboratory. For us average people, these tops actually work very well with a high-wasted flowy skirt, to show just a little skin on the upper rib cage. Keep the outfit light and bright (and the sun out of your eyes) with a wide-brimmed hat, simple sandals, and a statement satchel.
