Wildly Simple

Last Saturday I hosted an event at the Scottsdale Madewell.  They just launched their new and improved denim line, and their fall collection was just release, so it was a perfect time to celebrate and I was just thrilled to be a part of this exciting time! A few days before the event I came into the store and tried out all of the new denim while my friend Josh shared all of the ins and outs of the new styles. I also picked out three looks from the new collections that I would wear in a heart beat! Swoon, I seriously love everything in this store.

For the event I rocked a felt hat that felt very Madewell-esque, along with a top from the fall collection, their Transport tote, an old favorite necklace, their new Skinny Skinny Ankle-Zip jeans, and my trusty Holepunch Sidewalk Skimmer flats.

Madewell was super generous in letting me pick out the sips and sweets for the event, so we hired my favorite barista, The Coffee Chop, and got macarons from Essence Bakery. The iced coffee was a huge hit, and the macarons were so good and slightly addicting! My favorite flavors had to be the pumpkin, salted caramel, and pistachio!

Between the two hours that the event was held, we had an awesome amount of sweet blog readers, friends, and curious shoppers stop in. It was so awesome to see so many familiar faces and to feel so loved and supported during this event. We also had a BIG surprise that happened about half way through and it left the room buzzin!

Perry was the best barista and certainly kept my glass full of iced coffee the entire time! Perry is not only an amazing barista and an awesome friend, but he is also our official wedding barista and will be slinging drinks at our wedding in January!

Sarah, the cutest preggo lady I know, and her husband, Josh, stopped in and hung out for awhile. I tried my best to feel their baby, Miss Imogene, kick but all of the excitement must have lulled her asleep. One of these days I'm going to feel her kick - I just know it!

And our big surpise was my bestie Courtney surprising us all from California. Back in July she moved to the San Diego area to pursue her dreams and I couldn't be more proud of her! It was SO awesome to have her surprise all of our friends (I may have been in on the surprise, but at very short notice - like while I was already at the event when I found out the big news), and I'm so happy to have her home this week!

A big thank you goes out to Madewell and the Scottsdale team for letting me host this event, and for making it such a success! I had the best time and now I'm even more excited for their new denim and fall line! Ok, I'm off to work and I plan on having an extra productive and caffeinated day (because those two go hand in hand, right?).

What's on your agenda today? Do you like attending local events?
