Madewell Sale – it’s so good.

About two years ago, I read this book, and it was a game changer:

My closet and drawers were STUFFED with clothes I never wore, but was hanging onto for all the wrong reasons:  great designer, got for an insane price, was gifted but haven’t worn (yet), will fit into someday (ha!) . . . you get the picture.  I got rid of everything I didn’t absolutely love, and it changed my life.

I rarely buy clothes, but when I do, I only buy things I love.  I noticed this morning that my summer staples are looking a little sad, so I was happy to see that this Madewell sale is alllll the right things, and at the right prices.

Whisper Cotton Scoop Tank Top in Suzi Stripe

whisper cotton scoop tank top in suzi stripe- $9.99 (reviews say it runs big so I got an xs, for reference)

striped afternoon dress – $24.99 (based on the size chart I picked up a s)

magnolia tie-back dress – $29.99 (again, I ordered a s – this dress looks like it should be loose)

central long-sleeve shirt in lansford plaid – $19.99 (reviews say it runs large so I ordered an xs)

convertible ribbed gloves – $4.99 (I KNOW.  It’s June.  But they are $5 and in December I will be so happy to see these!)

plaid cozyweave scarf – $4.99  (So great for layering and accenting!)

Have fun shopping! xoxo


New Year? New workout clothes!

It’s January, guys!  Know what that means?  Awesome workout clothes on super clearance at our favorite stores!  I was just in Athleta, Lululemon, and Lucy and there was so much inventory on clearance – it was heaven!  Here are some of the items I scored:

Athleta Ponte Skinny Pant on sale for $39.  This pant is so good it’s ridiculous – looks like skinny jeans, feels like yoga pants.

Athleta High Rise Bloom Chat Tights for $28.  I love the high rise, as it keeps all my stuff covered and warm.

Athleta Frost Chat Tight for $28.  These are so COOL.

Splendour Bra

Lululemon Splendour Bra for $39 online (but I got  mine for less in store!)  I should note that I got five different tops at my local Lululemon for under $30 each, but I am not seeing those prices online.  It is worth checking the sale rack if you have one in town.

It is January, after all, so how about a few options to cover up with post-workout?

This cashmere cowl neck is 75% off ($85!) at Nordstrom Rack.

I love the slouchy V-neck in this 360 Cashmere sweater, also on sale at Rack.

I love the lean look of this Quinn Cashmere sweater, on sale for $70 at Nordstrom Rack!

Vince cashmere for $150?  YES.

You need these pants.

Why beat around the bush?  You need these pants.

My mother and sister-in-law both got these Athleta City Jogger pants in the spring, and loved them so much.  SO much.  I heard about them constantly.  Even though my birthday was in August, they bought me a pair, but they made me wait to get them until a few weeks ago.  Of course, an August birthday does not lend itself well to wearing pants because of the HEAT and the HUMIDITY and the SWEATING . . .

But.  This weekend, I had the house to myself and was getting down to some serious organizing and cleaning.  I tend to get a bit chilly in air conditioning, so I put on the pants.  I have to admit, I kinda thought my in-laws were nuts – how could a pair of pants be that great?  Also, the cuffing at the bottom reminded me of the sweatpants of the 80s so I wasn’t expecting great things here.

YOU GUYS.  These pants are life.

Not even kidding.  They are silky and light and comfy and they look amaaaaazing.  And, best of all?  They are on SUPER SALE!

I may have ordered a few more pairs.  (I totally did.)  You need a pair.  Or three.

Order Athleta City Jogger pants here.  (Side note:  the swim collection is on super sale as well, and you might as well check that out at the same time, right?)
