Bien Fait

It happened - I experienced the new Madewell denim line in all of its glory Tuesday night. My good friend Josh, the mastermind behind GROWop Boutique in downtown Phoenix, gave me the full run down of the new denim styles and encouraged me try on each and every pair. From the beginning I had my eye on the skinny skinny ankle-zip jeans in the pool wash. Josh told me that this pair was the crowd favorite and that with the zippers they could be styled so many different ways (Josh has a great eye for style and is forever inspiring me).

After about an hour of trying on the new styles, chatting with Josh and Scott, and eyeing all of the other pieces in the new collection, I finally decided that the skinny skinny ankle-zip jeans were coming home with me, along with the sweetest, flowy tee that says bien fait - which loosely translates to "made well" in french (it states well done, if I'm correct). Paired with my favorite punch hole flats and my trusty Transport tote, I felt like a walking Madewell ad - which is totally fine in my book. Wear what you love, right? Speaking of favorite outfits, have I mentioned that I'm featured in Glamour Magazine's Special Edition - 1,001 Best-Ever Fall Dos & Don'ts! AH! I seriously feel SO honored! They reached out to me earlier in the summer asking for my height and saying that they would be reprinting my photo that was featured in their March 2013 issue for this special edition. A sweet reader said she spotted me in the magazine today, so I immediately had to ask Scott if he could pick up a couple of copies for me today. If you get your hands on the magazine (we got ours at Barnes & Noble, but I also spotted it at CVS), you can find me on page 79!

Putting my Madewell obsession aside for a moment, my week has been busy, busy and tomorrow I'm super excited to have a fun potluck breakfast in the morning at my work, which will include me bringing in the most delicious homemade scones that Scott whipped up while I was at work today (he's seriously THE best). I'll also be sharing a silly baby picture of me with my my whole team (wish I could have found some older ones, like junior high and early high school - now those would have been funny), and probably indulging in one too many treats and cups of coffee. It's going to be a great morning!

Don't forget that this Saturday, September 7th, I'm hosting a denim event at the Scottsdale Madewell from noon to 2pm. Stop by to check out the new denim and fall lines, sip on coffee and eat yummy macarons, and also shop with a special discount (hint, hint - it's a good one!). Oh, and taking a silly photo with me is mandatory! ;]

Have you checked out the new Madewell denim line yet? What are you up to this weekend?

  1. I already said how much I loved this outfit on instagram but it wasn't ON you...and it looks great!! These are my fave kinds of outfits, jeans & a tee but with pretty little details. These jeans look PERFECT & I'm incredibly mad I don't have a Madewell in Canada...tell them to do something about that, will ya?

    Haha. Have fun at your brunch tomorrow. Sounds like a good weekend!
