Weekly Weakness – Madewell Must Haves


Fun fact: when I first moved to Washington, DC, I worked at Madewell for a short while. Basically I couldn’t find a job (living in a political town with a fashion degree and style magazine experience didn’t sit well with these stuffy folk), so I took a part time gig at the store to make some money (bills don’t care that you’re unemployed!) and get out of the apartment. I’ll be totally honest: I f’ing hated working retail. I mean, the store was great and I loved the clothes, but the retail life is not one for me. But needless to say, my love for Madewell has never wavered, and given my experience working there it always holds a soft spot with me. So for this edition of my Weekly Weakness, I wanted to revisit this old favorite and highlight a few pieces from their spring/summer collection I’m totally crushing on and hope to be adding to my closet. Best thing too about Madewell is that their pieces are also sold at my beloved Nordstrom! So here you have it y’all, happy shopping!

    Love the scarf, shirt, skirt and hat! Good choices!

    Oh, hehe, I just ordered 5 pairs of shoes from ASOS! Woot!

    I just bought my first pair of Madewell jeans over the weekend, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t cave earlier. They were definitely more than I’d normally spend on jeans ($138!), but they are SOO good. I honestly don’t think I can go back.

    Love all of these picks!

    I have that chambray stripe shirt and love it. The scarf is so pretty and I’ve admired that off the shoulder top too. They have such a great collection this season, I may have bought several items from there in recent months.
