Madewell Faves: Winter-Spring Transition 2017

Denim, leather, tees, shoes, intimates, & more...all MADE WELL. Madewell is a baby brand that branched out from J. Crew, and we LOVE them. Their pieces are timeless, effortless, and flat out cute as heck to rock around. Take a look at some of our favorites from Madewell to wear during this Winter-Spring transitional time, and how we wear them out on the town. 

In their own words...




Bandana scarf

Sweater top (SOLD OUT, similar, similar, similar)

9" High rise skinny jeans in black sea 

Braided black leather belt (SOLD OUT, similar, similar, similar)

Medium transport tote (wooden bead keychain is from Moorea Seal, also available in sea green/navy colorway)

The Barlow mule 

Plaid socks (SOLD OUT, similar, similar, similar)

The medium Transport Tote

Both of us have this one in English Saddle--and it is definitely a workhorse (pun intended, ha). Madewell took their famous Transport Tote and condensed it just a tad, throwing in a crossbody strap for hands-free carrying. This is our Mary Poppins bag. It's big enough to fit things that Aubrey needs every day for college such as notebooks, binders, and even her laptop. Kristen comfortably fits her makeup bag, 18oz Hydro Flask water bottle, (big fat) Erin Condren LifePlanner, wallet, and still has room to spare in the pockets for snacks, pocket tissues (allergies, ugh), and a stash of doggy poop bags (For Cash, her Boston Terrier baby). The Medium Transport Tote can hold a lot of stuff, but it's still small enough that you won't be tempted to lug around things you don't actually need (we've all been there). It's durable. It's classic. It's the BEST.

The Barlow Mule

The Barlow Mule is our go-to shoe right now. It's easy, comfy, and effortless -- perfect for lazy days when you still want to look put-together without trying too hard. The low block heel, sleek leather, and pointed toe lend it a dressed-up feel. They combine the look of an oxford or ankle bootie with the ease of a slipper. Ideal for people like Kristen who like to drive barefoot (no, it is not illegal).

Bracelets are also Madewell, but unfortunately sold out (similar, similar, similar).


These are just a few of our Madewell favorites right now. The Dela closets are full of Madewell because their pieces fit well and last, they have a reasonable price point, and possess a classic vibe that can carry you through the seasons and trends.
