We had macaroons and lavender-infused lemonade at the Oakbrook Madewell last Thursday, and spent the evening celebrating the store’s one-year anniversary. I was a special guest of the store, and I had a lot of fun dressing up the mannequins in my favorite looks.
Look #1: Dotted Scarf • Linebreak Dress • Everyday Clutch • I restrained myself from adding this dotted umbrella to the mix
Look #2: Silk Drop-Waist Dress • Journal Cardigan • Arrowstack Necklace • Camden Tote • Bug Scarf (in store)
Look #3: Heartdot Boyshirt • Softstripe Sweater • Drifter Shades • Skinny Skinny Ankle-Zip Jeans • The Kensington Satchel
Oh, man. Dressing up those mannequins was fun. HEY… future style post opportunity! (Just kidding. I won’t do that to you.)
I also pulled a rack of my favorites. You know, what I wish would magically appear in my closet.
And I have a new favorite pair of jeans! Skinny, ankle-length, without the low-rise fit, and super-flattering. YES. Madewell just redesigned all of their denim so that it doesn’t stretch out or bag, and the store let me choose a pair a couple of weeks ago to wear to the event. (Everything else you see me wearing was mine, except for the bag which I carried around the store with the tags on, like a weirdo.) I’ve been wearing those jeans a lot lately, and they still fit like new, so A+.
My outfit: Black and White Shirt (similar) • Leafstitch Sweater • High Riser Skinny Skinny Ankle Jeans • Frankie Suede Pump • Mallory Glasses • Hexagon Earrings (similar, but smaller) • Braided Friendship Bracelet • On the Dot Scatter Bracelet (seen here) • Botanical Rose iPhone Case • Crossbody Bag (in store)
Thank you to Madewell for having me, and a big thank you to all who came out for the event!
