Madewell was my last stop of the day and I found some lovelies. Take a look:
Silk Sandlight Top, $98, available here
I loved this top!! They claim it is a loose-fitting top on the website, but I tried it on in my regular size and it fits just so. It has a subtle zebra print, but the lighter part has a pinkish tint to it. It has a feminine quality with the bracelet length sleeves, the length is good at around hip level and it could work with something dressier or you could go casual like I saw a sales associate wearing it with jeans, a cardi and knee boots. If this top was silk, I would say the price is a little more understandable, but it is not; so my only qualm with this piece is the high price point. However, it is a really nice top and will definitely go on my wishlist.
Golden Grid Tee, $98, available here
Do you own a million and one tees like me? I definitely don't need another, but when something is a little bit different, I can make an exception. This is a simple black tee with some fun detailing. There are slightly raised gold dots throughout the top and it gets a thumbs up. The shape is simple (if slightly boxy), but the shimmery gold gives it some fabulous oomph that can make it extremely versatile for work and play. Fit is tts and again, my only issue is with the price, but I would say go for it (once it hits the sales rack, if it makes it there).
Woodhouse Cardigan in heather thistle, $79.50, available here
High Riser Colorpop Jeans in Patina Verte, $125, available here
In my opinion, Madewell is one place that does cardis well. They come in a great array of colors, they fit nicely and feel soft. I saw the pretty, soft purple color of this one and was instantly smitten. It looks like a thermal top, but is not fitted like one. It's soft and a little bit different from just a simple ole' cardigan. The fit is tts if just slightly big. Thumbs up on this one.
Thanks to J. Crew, I have it in my head that I need a pair of mint pants. A pair of cords would be my first choice, but these legging jeans make a nice casual option. The fit was snug in my regular size, but there is a good amount of stretch to it, so I'm sure that will lead to a different feel once they've been worn on the body. The color is a pale, green-blue shade that reminds me of ocean water. I think this is an extremely versatile shade that would lend itself well to navy blue, yellow, purples, pinks, browns, pretty much anything really. The price is on par with other designer denim brands and I can't really comment on the quality of their denim (although I do like the fit whenever I try a pair on in the store), but they are running a special through December 31st. If you bring in a pair of old denim jeans, you can get 20% off your first Madewell jean purchase in the new year. I already have a pair of old jeans lined up for donation, so I hope these minty fresh jeans can be mine soon.
