Current Madewell favorites I own & how to get them 20% off!

April 10, 2018
Madewell Pocket Tank

Who else has been loving everything from Madewell lately?! Such classic pieces, but stylish and comfy. I decided to round-up the things that I own and love and tell you why you need them in your closet. The sale on their website is over, but you can still get 20% off when you purchase your Madewell items here with code EVENT18. (Everything else is 20% off with the code as well!)

Madewell Favorites

  1. Madewell Fleet Jacket | I have had this jacket since last fall & I love it! Even though it’s olive green, it works as a neutral with pretty much any casual outfit I have on. It fits TTS. (I’m a size S for reference)
  2. Madewell Pocket Tank | Buy all the colors!! Seriously. It’s almost the same price as one you’d find at Target, but it’s way better quality and will look the same after many washes & wears. I found it to be TTS (I have them in size S) but some say to size down, depending on how fitted you like your tanks.
  3. Madewell High Rise Button Shorts | Loving the details on these shorts. I just got these in the mail today and they are so flattering! Can’t wait to wear them as soon as it warms up, IF that ever happens. #midwestproblems 😉 They are TTS, I ordered a 27.
  4. Madewell Pom Pom Pullover | Ok, how fun is this sweater?! This is the only item I don’t actually own, but I had to include it because it’s so cute. Loving how it’s a pretty ivory color so the poms are noticeable but don’t stick out too much. Sizes are going fast on this one, so if you like it, go go go!
  5. Madewell Crew Tee | This is the perfect classic tee that EVERYONE needs in their closet. It’s perfect for those days when you don’t know what to wear – just throw it on with some jeans and a jacket or cardigan and you’ll look polished and cute. I bought this one in a medium, because I don’t like my tees to be too tight. The small definitely worked if you like yours a bit more fitted.
  6. Madewell High-Rise Boy Shorts | I really need to stop buying #allthejeanshorts… I went from never being able to find a pair that fit right, to owning a huge stack of them. Whoopsyyyy. This pair fits super similarly to the button shorts above, but look like your classic jean shorts. The high-waist makes them so flattering… if you are a mama with a lil extra around your middle like me, these suck it allllll in. They are TTS, I have a 27.
  7. Madewell V-Neck Pocket Tee | Surprise! Another classic tee! This one is a bit more casual but has the same look as the pocket v-neck tank. It’ll be perfect for spring days that are warm but not hot enough for a tank. I wear these all the time, even during the winter months with cardigans and jackets. So soft and comfy and runs TTS. (I have size S)

Revolve sale order try-on session

March 12, 2018
Tularosa Amelia Romper in Linen

Since I unfortunately won’t be keeping all of the things I ordered from the Revolve sale, I thought it’d be fun to share the things I did order and how they looked when I tried them on. I learned a major lesson after this sale – don’t order all linen/white colors if you are a pale person, such as myself. I do plan on using more self tanner as it starts getting warmer, but I think part of the reason I didn’t like some of these was only because I was so freakin’ pale. I wish their sale would have lasted longer than a day, I needed more time to scout out some cute stuff!

Tularosa Amelia Romper in Linen

This romper by Tularosa is SO ADORABLE. I ordered an XS because it was the only size left, and I was pretty positive there was no way I was squeezing my booty into it. Surprisingly I did get it on, but my butt cheeks were hanging out of the bottom. HAH. I’ll spare you that photo 😉 ALL sizes are back in stock except the small… I hope it comes back though because it’s SOOO cute and I need it!

Amuse Society Cross My Heart dress

Amuse Society Cross My Heart dress

This floral dress was a “like” but not a “love.” If the base color wasn’t so light, I probably would have considered keeping it. I liked the fit & the material was nice and light. Perfect for the hot summer days!

Endless Rose Side Pocket Shorts Endless Rose Side Pocket Shorts

Another like but not a love. I have been wanting a pair of paper bag shorts like these, but I just didn’t think they were overly flattering on me. The color is so beautiful though!

Tularosa Ashby Romper Tularosa Ashby Romper

This one is a LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I’m looking at these photos wondering why I didn’t keep this romper?! I’m thinking that if I would have self-tanned before this try-on sesh, this lil number would be in my closet. I just felt so pale trying it on. It’s so pretty thoughhhhh, may have to re-order. 🙂

Tularosa Elba Dress Rainbow Lace Tularosa Elba Dress Rainbow Lace

The construction and fabric of this dress is gorgeous. It was dainty and delicate but still very well made. I just didn’t love the way it fit on me – kind of shapeless through the body. The arm area is fun though! (I found it in a couple sizes for 60% off here!!)

Tularosa x Revolve Rocky Dress Tularosa x Revolve Rocky Dress

I loved the color and fabric of this dress but I couldn’t figure out if it was cute or looked like some weird hospital gown-ish dress on me. It comes in a pretty ivory color too that’s on sale. I ordered that one too but I’ll spare you pale on pale on pale. 😉

Friday Favorites

Burt's Bees cucumber & sage face wipes, Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel, Two Faced Just Peachy Mattes

I missed Friday Favorites last week but I’m back! Yaaay! You may have seen that I mentioned it on Instagram, (or a blog post? can’t remember) but our dog had surgery a couple weeks ago and she is STILL recovering from it. Unfortunately she may have to have another surgery on Tuesday to remove part of her tail… fingers crossed that she doesn’t & the healing continues. AHHH. Anyway, that has been eating up a big chunk of my time, so I haven’t gotten to post as frequently as I’d like to!

band tee casual

February 19, 2018

Happy Monday! This band tee casual outfit is clearly a few days old… THE SNOW HAS MELTED! Hallelujah! I’m excited that the days of needing to wear these lace-up winter boots are ending – even though they are so cute. Such a great investment – going on my third year of owning them & they still look brand new. I have noticed they are starting to go on sale – it’s a good time to buy!

black gingham for under $25

Target Who What Wear Black Gingham Blouse

Not just your basic black gingham blouse

I’m always a sucker for a neutral print. I love plain grays and whites and blacks like any other lady, but sometimes it’s fun to change it up with a print. Like this black gingham blouse from the Who What Wear Collection. You can stand out without standing out too much. Ya know?

I also love the ruffle details on the shoulder… Adds a little something extra & makes it look expensive. Except it’s not! Can you believe that this blouse is under $25?! Can’t go wrong with that price.

The sleeve of the shirt is fun too. It gives the top so much more movement than if it were just fitted in the arms.

Happy Saturday! I am feeling refreshed after a couple hours to myself. 😉 My husband took the kids to a community event while I stayed home & caught up on the latest Bachelor episode. Now I’m just sipping on some coffee, making lunch & thinking about hopping on the Peloton this afternoon. Exciting day! I had fun picking out my picks from this weekend’s sales… whether you’re looking for casual tees, a hot Valentine’s Day outfit or workout gear, I’ve got you covered!

American Eagle — Buy 2 tops get 1 free. Includes Tailgate tops! Love this love > hate tee, this make love not war tee and this Grand Canyon tee. (Even though I’ve never been been there! lol)

Not sure who I’m turning into, but I have been LOVING all of the pink lately. You couldn’t have paid me to wear pink 10 years ago, but now I’m all about that millennial pink. Shirts, cardigans, jeans, yes please.
