Madewell has released its spring 2016 lookbook, and even though I just cleared 4"+ of snow off of my car this morning, it's encouraging me to start planning some updates to my warm weather wardrobe. I love the classic combination of gingham and denim, grounded with solid wooden heels and finished off with sexy details like lace up necklines and little neck bandannas. I always make Madewell my go-to for new ideas, and then try to recreate certain looks at more affordable places like Gap and H&M. if all else fails, though, I just wait until later in the season when they start to offer 30 - 40% off of sale prices. once that happens it's game over for my credit cards.
