I discovered a new cute store earlier this week.  Actually, the store’s not new at all but it’s new to me – Madewell.  Have you guys been?  I was meeting my friend Jen for one of our regular shop & lunch dates and she texted me to that she had popped into their store, drawn in my something in the window.  It was her first time in too although we found out that this particular store has been in our mall for seven years, Madewell has been around since 1937.

We both ended up with a bunch of items from there by the time we were done!  Their website calls their style artful, cool, tomboy, sexy and effortless.  I totally felt like their clothes were all of those things.

I mean, how cute, right:

My fav in this layered look is the Lattice Skirt, $118.  I may have to pick one of those up next time I’m there.  Love it with the jean jacket!

This Eyelet Hideaway Dress, $128 is so perfect for spring.  Love this with a jean jacket!

Their bags are just totally gorgeous too.  Casual & simple:

I ended up with two shirts I just love including this:

Here I am in it – I’m also wearing Legging Jeans from the Gap and Ruby Red Tieks.  And check out the detailing on the shirt up close:


I also picked up the Tomboy Workshirt, which is currently on sale for $49.99 and normally $88.  I love this with tall boots and any kind of jeans.  I may pair it later too with my faux black leather pants for a fun look too.  It’s really comfortable and I love that it has a rugged kind of look but it’s still cut for a woman.
