If there were a theme to this outfit, it would undeniably be this: Madewell. It’s still one of my favorite brands: I love the clothing and I love the branding/styling even more. They had an awesome winter sale after Christmas and I snagged the shirt I’m wearing in this outfit (as well as the shirt from this outfit). At first, I wasn’t so jazzed about the color of the blouse in person, but now I really love it. It’s super comfortable and a great wardrobe staple. Now, the story portion of the post you’ll find after the first three photos…
shirt – madewell (sold out, but shop their sale section here and get an extra 30% off with the code UPANDUP)
jeans – frame denim from thread on grandview
shoes – madewell (old)
bag – madewell
The photo above had to be included and probably deserves an explanation. I looked down the alley and saw a woman with her dog talking to a man in a big truck. The passenger window was open and the dog, all of a sudden, attempted to leap from the ground into the passenger window and he didn’t make it. He pathetically slapped against the side of the car and slid down to the pavement. Luckily, he was fine, but it was quite the scene.
