Madewell Try-On's: Spring


First things first, there's a big Madewell sale going on and today is the last day! I was hoping to get this post up earlier, but better late than never, right? So the good news is you can take 20% off everything except denim and their leather transport collection or 30% off orders of $200+ with code FOLLOWURCART. Of course, I had to get in and do a quick try on. Actually, I did two trips as you'll be able to tell with my hair.

stripe and floral dress

RUFFLE FAUX WRAP DRESS $150 // Size 0

Madewell didn't come out with many dresses this season, but thought this one was worth trying on. It is bold, but a flattering cut. I could see how this could work in an office setting or for the weekend. It does run true to size.

TEXTURE & THREAD GATHERED-SLEEVE TOP $45 // SIZE XS

Okay, you might recognize this from my last post. Clearly, I loved it. The color is a nice blush for Spring. For me, the texture and material is what makes this extra special. I will say it does run short and you would need high-waisted jeans.

red and blue stripe tee

HI-FI SHRUNKEN TEE $35 // SIZE XS

Can Madewell ever make a bad stripe? Nope. This one is a little more tomboy, but I kinda love that with the smaller fit. It's a little loose and felt I could wear an xs or small without seeing any real difference.



TEXTURE & THREAD WRAP-TIE TOP $45 // SIZE XXS

This is just another great updated basic top that will go with so much. It does come in several other colors. I did find this to run big. I would have never tried it on an xxs until seeing it in person. It's still not fitted, so I would say size down.



RAINBOW STRIPE BUTTON-FRONT TANK TOP $58 // SIZE M (PROBABLY NEED XS)

I really was hoping my store would have this in my size, but the smallest size was a medium. It's clearly so big, but fun for the warmer months. I love the elastic at the back for fit. I'm thinking I would need a XS in this one.

white floral top and cut off shorts



HIGH-RISE DENIM BOYSHORTS IN GLENOAKS WASH $69.50 // SIZE 25 

EMBROIDERED FABLE TOP $65.99 // SIZE XS

This top might look familiar, but I had to try it on again now that it's been marked down. It really looks best tucked in. While I don't try on denim often, I am on the hunt for shorts. Their denim does run a size bigger than what I normally get or if you are between sizes you should get your smaller size. These are just the right amount of high-waist for someone who is short in the torso, like myself. Surprisingly, they were comfy around the waist. While I'm still debating if they are flattering on my rear, they do cover it all. I'm just not used to a more fitted pair of shorts.




Which is your favorite?

Fancy Tee

blush bell sleeve top

cute blush tshirt and distressed jeans

easy weekend look for spring

cute coral top with bell sleeves

casual coral tee and ripped jeans

top (size xs / on sale!) // jeans // sandals (similar) // purse // sunglasses

Don't mind me, but I'm living my best life in what I call fancy tees. Yup, a fancy tee says you're trying to look like you got it together. That you know, you put some effort into getting dressed today. Living in LA, it's so casual already and I really don't see that many people daily, so I really have to push myself to put on some cute clothes. The best thing are all the options for updated t-shirts and it's been my new obsession. It's still easy to toss and go, but basic enough that I actually wear it. This blush bell sleeve top (currently 20% off) has been the newest addition and is made of a nice thick, ribbed material, so it gives it enough of that fancy I look for.  Is anyone else into all these fancy tees? And if you know of any you love, tell me please. Here are a few more I have or been eyeing:





Okay, I can't believe it's already the end of the week, so it's time to look back at last year's look here. Oh, and I'm talking about updated basics (aka fancy tees). Guess my style is still the same.

Thank you for linking up with us! Our picks are Lee from Legallee Blonde  and Kileen from Cute and Little
