Here are some photos of the girls and me taking Noodle (Chicago hot dog) to the Chicago hot dog stand. (We did not let her eat one because it felt a little cannibalistic. 😜 Instead, she got some chicken-flavored doggy treats.)
Annnywhoooo. Let’s get to the point of this post!
Here are 15 Madewell purchases to consider:
Pointelle Cable Cardigan Sweater: 30 percent off. STUNNING! It’s amazingly cozy and perfectly oversized. The tortoise buttons are such a cute touch, too! (Runs large. Size down 1-2 sizes. I’m wearing the XS here, which is still nice and roomy!)
Button-Front Leaves Dress: 30 percent off. (Longer version here.) Made out of my favorite wrinkle-resistant Madewell material! Crazy flattering on everyone. Runs large; I would go down one size. Also, pro tip: Wear biker shorts underneath it when the weather cools. Adds a TON of warmth and if the wind blows up your dress, no big deal. ;)
Carlotta Boots: 30 percent off. The best pair of riding boots I’ve ever owned. I can’t stress how incredible they are. I have ridiculously sensitive feet, but these required zero break-in time. And the low chunky heel gives me some height without compromising comfort. I went up a half size like I always do in boots so I can wear thick socks with them!
Sydney Crossbody Bag: Not on sale, but worth every penny. So soft, lets you be hands-free, and holds a ton despite its small appearance. Favorite Madewell bag ever!
Estate Cocoon Coat: It’s 40 percent off! HOLY. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see me wearing it.) First, let me say that you shouldn’t read too much into any negative reviews. You simply need to size DOWN. I normally order a size 2 in J.Crew coats, and because of the reviews, I went with the XXS in the Estate Coat. It’s perfect. And I totally have enough room in the shoulders, which is usually a problem area for me!
Rosie Ankle Boot: 50 percent off. Such a classic. These look fabulous with the below jeans. (Also, no break-in time. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see me wearing them.)
Cali Demi-Boot Jeans: 30 percent off. You HAVE to get these. They’re so soft and comfortable, and they’re the only jeans I own that actually look good with booties. I feel super chic when I wear them, too! Highly recommend. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see me wearing them.)
Whisper Cotton Turtleneck: 30 percent off. A wardrobe staple I couldn’t live without. Love that it’s a little more drapey than other brands’ versions! The stripe is awesome. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see me wearing one.)
Ribbed Lyle Henley Sweater: 50 percent off. I own this and it’s one of my favorites! It’s generous.
Tencel Skinny Jeans: 40 percent off. SO GOOD. And very warm!
Bobble Sweater: 30 percent off. Too cute!
Quilted Sweater Jacket: 30 percent off. Just saw this, and I’m in love. Zoom in on the material!
Fleece Crop Cardigan: 30 percent off. Coming to a blog post near you! It’s so cozy. Yet also kind of dressy in a very 2020 kind of way? Ha. TTS. Looks very nice with high-waisted jeans; my belly doesn’t show at all.
Pointelle Mockneck Sweater: 30 percent off. Really beautiful.
Ruffleneck Sweater: 30 percent off sale price. YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS. It was just restocked again, because you can take 30 percent off the sale price, it’s a steal. Size up! Definitely runs small. (Here I am wearing it.)
