Madewell Addiction

About a month ago a Madewell store opened up in my town and it has turned into a dangerous thing. Before Madewell opened I had a few people describe it to me as “the tomboy sister to J. Crew” when I first went in the store I saw a lot of plaid shirts and boxy sweaters, and my initial reaction upon my first glance around was “I’m not sure this store is for me” – well, my first glance reaction was way off.

Madewell has turned into a store that is almost as dangerous for me as Anthropologie is. Every time I venture into Madewell I see an item that I mentally store in my head as a possible item to add to my wardrobe. I love their flannel shirts {especially the plaid ones}, leggings, sweaters, but most of all I love their skirts. In all honesty I haven’t bought a skirt for the fall/winter season in almost two or three years {shameful, I know} partly because I am more of a dress person and partly because I just haven’t seen one that I “love” in a couple years. Madewell has so many cute skirts for the fall/winter months and I have been stalking up on them and they all look so great with a chunky sweater, button up, or long sleeve tee. I think I can safely say the Madewell store has renewed my fondness for skirts during the wintertime.

Below are my favorite things from the Madewell store that I have come across thus far. {psssst… a few of these items are on sale!}. I am almost ashamed to say it but I really was not that familiar with Madewell till one opened up close to where I live, but now I am not sure how I went so many fall and winter seasons without them.

  3. So interesting. I just bought the Ex-boyfriend shirt in Albion Plaid and I absolutely love it! It's a great buy if you are thinking about investing in a plaid.
    Love to read your posts!

  5. Ooooo I can see why. It's lovely. A little masculine in fabrics but with feminine cuts and styles.

  6. I love Madewell also. I only wish they made their skirts a little longer. I'm 5'11 & weigh 143lbs. Every time I try a skirt on in my size, it's super short. I can only wear them in the winter with opaque tights & flats. Tall girl problems.

    1. I'm 5'6 and sometimes I feel like skirts are too short for me so I feel you on that - The turnout skirt is long compared to their other skirts, it comes down to my knees. I have to say I love how dresses look on taller people, there is definitely a wow factor!
