“Summer Afternoon—to me those Have Always Been the most Beautiful Words in the English Language.”
— Henry James
Summer is in full swing here in SC, and because of that I’ve got summer (vacation let’s be real) dressing on the mind. For this Currently Coveting I want to just talk about how good Madewell is right now. I mean seriously. Look at that graphic. Look at those items. I needed them in my closet this time yesterday.
This post is pretty much my lust list/obsession with all things Madewell, you well branded piece of Americana you. Firstly, can we just talk about that jumpsuit? Stripes, cutouts, tie front. Could you be more on-trend? Could you appeal more to my sartorial senses — I think not. Throw on that Panama hat (which is on sale — holla at yah girl), and you’re ready to explore Cannes, or in my case, Charleston.
Also featured, the ultimate summer slide. If you didn’t grab a pair of these bad boys last summer, I highly recommend doing so. P.S. they’re also on sale. They’re a classic, made from leather, and have the look (without that whopping price tag) of the Hermes sandals.
To round out this summer checklist, I added two beautiful tops. Mustard is my favorite color, and when paired with eyelets, lace, and OTS (off the shoulder) details, you know I’m sold. You should be too. I’m probably the biggest proponent of striped shirts, I own too many, so adding this short sleeved edition to my wardrobe is a no brainer. Work, play, brunch, wherever you may go, this shirt will serve you.
And let’s not forget the skirt and dresses. Skirt. Slit. Stripes. Perfection. The dresses are very of the moment, an OTS denim number feels more updated than their sad denim cousin (looking at you denim shorts), and this printed shift dress is perfect for dinner on the beach, or in the Maldives if you’re fancy like that.
